Player this season.
Sol Campbell 11
David Ginola 8
Tim Sherwood 5
Steffen Iversen 1
No real surprise there then.
Stevie has had a wonderful season for club and country, producing
determined performances in defence and going forward too. Letís hope
he will be in the reckoning for this category for many years to come.
Did Davidís share of the vote have any bearing on his situation at the

Les Ferdinand 14
Willem Korsten 12
Steffen Freund 10
Mauricio Tarrico 6
Chris Armstrong 6
Justin Edinburgh 6
Others :- Leonhardsen,
Scales, Iversen, Clemence, Ferdinand, Perry, Anderton, Saib, Vega,
Poor old keepers, eh ? Or not
in your view. At least he played in most of the games, unlike the next
few players and I suppose that Freund is there for his shooting
inaccuracy. A long list of suspects were polled and there appear to be
few players who are actually liked.
3. Best goal
scored by Spurs.
Carr v. Man U
Carr v. Sunderland (H) 16
Sherwood v. Villa (A)
Sherwood v. Arsenal (H) 1
Ginola v. Watford (H) 1
Armstrong v.Boro (H) 1
Personally, I liked the
Sunderland one better, but the whole Man U game was a belter - a bit
like Carrís goal. Nice to see Sherwood getting a mention as quite a
few of his goals are scrappy, but these were class and hey what about
Armoís v Liverpool and Southampton ? Worth a mention arenít they ?
scored against Spurs.
Alan Wright - Villa
Dion Dublin - Villa (H) 24
Beckham - Man U (A) 12
Carbone - Villa
Others :- Berger - Liverpool
(A), Keane - Coventry (H), Ricard - Boro (H), Weir - Everton (A),
Makin - Sunderland (H), Harte - Leeds (H).
That Villa game has left an
mark on all our memories. All four goals could have featured here and
the fact that three of them make the top four says a lot about that grey
day. All those mentioned have been stunning strikes, with Keaneís the
exception, but we wonít have to worry about him for a while !
improved Spurs player.
Chris Armstrong 14
Stephen Clemence 13
Once again Stephen takes the
honours by a country mile. How much he has improved is a matter of
opinion and certainly the improvement in Armo and Clem towards the end
of the season was noticeable. Strange to see one person thinks Walker
has improved while most see him going backwards !
match this season.
Southampton (H) 8
Sunderland (H) 1
The atmosphere at the
Sunderland game at the end of the season made it a good game, whereas
the whole thing about the Arsenal and Man U games made them come out on
top, but it was a close thing between them. The goalfest against The
Saints rated highly as we havenít seen such gluts in recent years.
match this season.
Arsenal (A) 13
Fulham (A) 8
Sheff Wed (H) 7
Bradford (H) 7
Others :- Middlesbrough (H),
Kaiserslautern (A), Leicester (H), Derby (H), West Ham (A), Leeds (H),
Coventry (A), Watford (A), Man U (A).
You were all a bit spoilt for
choice really. The FA Cup replay thrashing took it by some distance, but
I would have thought the UEFA Cup exit was worse as we were through
until stoppage time. More candidates in this section that for the Best
Di Canio 6
Roy Keane 3
Jaap Stam 3
Others :- Henry, Westerveld,
Horsfield, Scholes, Vieira, N. Quinn, Carbone, Steven Gerrard, Hasselbaink, Robbie Keane, Ziege.
Man U 17
Others ;- Fulham, Liverpool,
We meant individual rather than
team for this category, but have included both sets of answers here.
Kewell is one of the outstanding talents in the Premier League -
especially when Leeds play us that is ! Iím a bit surprised about the
inclusion of Hasselbaink as I donít remember Spurs playing Atletico
Madrid !! All the other players had good games against us some time
during last season.
As for the best teams we faced,
you rate Man U and Leeds as the prime opponents, which is not
surprising. Nice to see Soíton get a mention, but this is probably so
that we might get six points against them again this time around.
realistic, which one player would you like Tottenham to sign in the
Others :- Seedorf, Shevchenko,
Kluivert, Robbie Keane, Izzett, Southgate, Lennon, Jeffers, Nuno Gomes,
Jardel, Tore Andre Flo, Bejbl, Zahovic, Ehiogu, Redknapp, DíAllesandro,
Barmby, Scholes, Thatcher, Steven Gerard, Butt, Delvecchio, Hyypia,
Beckham, Rui Costa, Sullivan, Michael Owen.
What a long list and a huge
squad we would have if all your dreams came true. I can understand why
Zenden topped the poll after his successful Euro 2000 performances.
However, it would be a real feat to tempt him to come to Tottenham.
Lampard is more of an option, while Ole seems happy sitting off field
for Man U. Many of the others would prefer to stay where they are (no
doubt) or have gone elsewhere during the summer. DíAllesandro (as you
know) would be my main target if possible.
Worst referee (just one please).
Uriah Rennie 25
Graham Poll 16
Paul Durkin 13
David Elleray 9
Others :- Steve Lodge, Graham
Barber, Andy Díurso, Paul Alcock, Neale Barry, Mike Riley, Jeff
We took the mentions of Rolf
Harris and Bob Harris (not the one on the Old Grey Whistle Test), as Rob
and he just pipped the egotistical Uriah to the top of the heap. His
handling of the Villa game at the Lane was a joke and his reputation has
plummeted this season after his FA Cup substitute fiasco at Tranmere.
The usual suspects appear in the list, but surprised to see Barber and
Barry as they seem a bit more sensible than the rest.
11. Best away
ground visited this season.
Stadium of Light 17
Others :- Stamford Bridge,
The Dell, Highfield Road, Selhurst Park, Hillsbrough, Goodison Park,
Craven Cottage, Fritz Walter Stadion (Kaiserslautern), Clarence Park
(St Albans), Vicarage Road.
Unsurprisingly, Man U always
comes out at the top of this section. However, the Mackems appear to
have seen the light and have gone into second place, while Derby
(probably because of their generosity) make third. But The Dell - really
12. What do
you think the new away kit should look like.
As new one/opposite of
Yellow version of home
Others : - Not yellow, not
purple, old style (60ís/71), Brazil 70, Italy 2000, Simple and
bold/plain, any non-gooner strip.
Again, the current design
seemed to take pride of place, with some other suggestions which seem
unlikely to make the cut of the cloth. The kit should be plain in your
opinion and the current two donít do too bad in that department.
Credit is due to the voter who said it is the players who wear them that
Which other team do you dislike the most.
Arsenal reserves 1
Nice to see that there is a
healthy spread of dislike throughout the reaches of the Premier League.
Chelsea take the biscuit as we havenít beaten them since the Queen Mum
was a lass, then come our traditional (and boring) rivals, before Man U
appear. Also good to note the appearance of a reserve side too.
14. Do you
think Tottenham should
Expand at White Hart
Move to the proposed Picketts
The home ground of
Tottenham Hotspur should be just that you think. Even though Picketts
Lock is less than a couple of miles away, the heart and soul is at the
Lane. The confusion over the size of the athletics stadium leaves a lot
to be desired, but the nightmare scenario is that Arsenal might move in
Tottenham enter the InterToto Cup.
So, you give a resounding no
for a trip to the seaside again to watch Spurs play some non-entity of a
European side for a place in the UEFA Cup concurring with GGís
opinion. It is now harder to win through to a final, with some top clubs
taking part, but it would give some meaning to pre-season matches and be
good experience, even if a UEFA place wasnít secured.
16. Do you
think Tottenham are right to hold out before selling a proportion of
their shares to a media company (i.e. Sky, Carlton, NTL, etc.).
A fair consensus of opinion
that we donít sell out to media companies and leave the club in the
hands of individuals rather than multi-national conglomerates. Not sure
it would have had the same response if I had asked the question in that
you like to see more reserve games played at White Hart Lane.
Depends on state of pitch 3
A return to the Lane was
popular, with some saying they were too far away for it to matter. Quite
rightly, the effect on the pitch was raised as a concern. St. Albans
pitch isnít brilliant, I can tell you.
18. Do you
think that George Graham should blood some of the young signings sooner
rather than later.
Etherington & Davies
Only in less important games
Overwhelming support for
playing the young stars of Spurs, with some reservations. However, you
will only find out how good they are if they play in the first team, but
with Ginola gone, Ethers might find it hard to go a full season.
whom do you feel that the problem in signing players lies
want to come 1
Our Knight comes out on top,
just pipping Pleaty, with GG a distant third. Again, if the poll was
done post-Ginola, GG might have been higher up. I suppose the blame is
pointed at Sugar for not releasing big money before now, but the
confusion over Pleatís position at the club has clouded the issue. One
pollster rightly said that the players arenít keen to come and that is
the result of mismanagement over the years and the resulting lack of
success meaning our pulling power is less than great.
