Just out of curiosity, why Berbatov cunt and modric priviliged ? They did sort of the same thing to us no ?

Not to my recollection. Modric never refused to play to my knowledge, stayed an ‘extra’ Season in the end & didn’t go to a PL rival. Had he gone to the Blue Scum like he wanted to he’d be ‘cunted’ by me

Plus Modric is/was a class above anyway, imo, so more difficult to begrudge him the move

Finally I’ve met him (post move) & he said the nicest things about Spurs

Anderton - excellent player could have been one of the first names people remembered from his era injuries killed him
Sol - Cunt
Keane - solid servant done very well for us should never have come back - better than Defoe imo
Lennon - Had his moments but terrible end product and never learnt to strike a ball properly
Huddlestone- 1 good season but honestly think he was one of the most overrated players I've ever seen easy on the eye but such a liability due to his laziness
Carrick- One of the most underrated players of his era was great for us
Palacios - exactly what we needed when he first signed faded instantly after his bro died was never gonna be that memorable if that didn't happen.
Berba - loved him the only player who I've seen who can be that nonchalant and brilliant at the same time is Cantona with more dedication and a better workrate he could have been one of the very best
Gallas - done a job but never liked him
VDV - great big match player and best impact signing we ever made still think we let him go at the right time
Modric -best first team signing we ever made in the premier league era possibly ever incredible player
Bale - made the difference so many times just a revalation and should go down as a spurs legend outstanding player
Ade- overall a good signing never hated him never loved him always thought he was a good player pity he downed tools so often in his career
Bentaleb - good prospect that never kicked on, great business to get 17m for him
 
Ok then...
  • sicknote. A replacement for Waddle and a very close facsimile - though not close enough. Would loved to have seen him in a better Spurs side rather than the one that grew gradually more shit during the 90's
  • judas/scum - what do you want people to say about this tosser? ok, I'll try for an objective view - a powerful, dominant centre half unfortunately playing in a back four consisting of Carr, Edinburgh and Perry; in front of either walker or Sullivan and always behind a porous midfield. Questionable psychological profile, bordering on meglamania and a definite narcissist. A fucking Tory to boot
  • Pretty good. Part of a nucleus that led THFC out of the wilderness. Shit goal celebrations
  • He's a yiddo. Prolific. Shouldn't have sold him first time around...
  • Tricky, pacy winger who had opposition centre defenders shitting themselves as he skipped toward and into their penalty box. Couldn't cross the ball.
  • Hoddle's heir apparent - just didn't quite work out for him. Too big? Too slow? Lovely range of passing and a traction engine shot...
  • Hoddle's heir apparent. Man United snaffled him up and he had his best years there
  • Excited when he first joined. A colossus who I/we hoped would do the Makalele bit for us just when the DM was becoming fashionable. faded badly
  • Beautiful feet, grace, class and could finish. Just wasn't one of us. Appreciated his time here but just didn't quite feel Spurs - and therefore legend (if you get my drift)
  • Turncoat mercenary. Cried on the pitch playing for Woolwich. Best years playing for Chelski. Did a job for us. no more than that
  • A throwback to another era. Couldn't run, couldn't jump. Seemed overweight. BUT had rock star quality. Made things happen. Unfortunately not around long enough
  • We made him the player he is today!! Class in every way. Our loss was Real's gain but i'm not sure we can blame him for going....
  • Destroyer of worlds when on-song (lets forget the first 20-odd appearances). Always felt he was off at some stage, so therefore see Modric sprinkled with a bit of Berba. Will never forget the destruction of both Milan's
  • See Gallas (but even more of a clown)
  • Wasted talent
 
  • Anderton - Sicknote moniker was a bit unfair, was great for us, classy player.
  • Campbell - Never to be mentioned.
  • Keane - Great partnership with Berbatov, wanted to become an honorary Dipper and soured everything.
  • Defoe - Loves us and we love him.
  • Lennon - Was a joy to watch in his pomp plus the only tripod to play for us that i know of.
  • Huddlestone - Technically great but expected so much more. Didn't like getting on the scales, tubby sod.
  • Carrick - Think he could have become a legend for us but was out the door as soon as it opened.
  • Palacios - Loved him, came in and tackled anything that moved. Very sad personal circumstances.
  • Berbatov - Great player, joy to watch but agitated to get out of the door. Hard to hate him.
  • Gallas - Not bothered.
  • Van Der Vaart - Flawed individual but was a perfect fit for us. Love him despite his faults.
  • Modric - One of the best players i've seen for us but a rat faced cunt.
  • Bale - Became a world class player and fucked off to his boyhood club. Fuck him.
  • Adebayor - There will be a book about him, complex character.
  • Bentaleb - Only rumours but it seemed he got a bit to big for his own boots. Oh well, who gives a shit really.

You gotta trust ole Gibbsy.
  • Darren Anderton - Didn't watch him long enough to really form much of an opinion
  • Sol Campbell - Cunt.
  • Robbie Keane - Loved him at the time and what he brought to the team, but hate the way in which he left. Could have left a fan favorite but fucked it all up.
  • Jermain Defoe - I like to think that somewhere, right now, that he's offsides. I still really like him and enjoy it that he's still making an impact.
  • Aaron Lennon - Absolutely right decision for him to go and I'm sad that it turned out the way that it did. Loads of potential and I'm glad that he's in a better place now.
  • Tom Huddlestone - All I see are sideways and backwards passes.
  • Michael Carrick - Lost him too quickly to see his real potential for us.
  • Wilson Palacios - Good work rate and provided exactly what we needed at that particular time.
  • Dimitar Berbatov - There is no other player I've come to love and then hate so much in such a short period of time.
  • William Gallas - I appreciate him and what he did for us. Never really felt Spurs to me, but I respect the work he put in for us and gave us a little leadership and experience that we needed.
  • Rafael van der Vaart - Still remember his signing day and love to see him still rooting for us. He was a difference maker when we needed one the most.
  • Luka Modrić - He's a rat-faced cunt, but still the best passer I've ever seen at Spurs.
  • Gareth Bale - He went from a LB who was considered a jinx to one of Europe's most potent attacking threats and could turn a game on its head by sheer work and drive. Then his head got bigger than his ears and fucked off to Madrid. Not sure why people would want him back.
  • Emmanuel Adebayor - He still has my favorite goal celebration ever (even if not for us) and I feel more bad for him than anything. He was as equally talented as he was lazy and arrogant, but I fear his personal issues really took a toll on him.
  • Nabil Bentaleb - Looked like he was going to be our midfield leader of the future, but couldn't live up to his expectations.

  • Darren Anderton - was let down by the coaching/backroom staff at the time.
  • Sol Campbell - left to progress his career, way he did it was cunitish.
  • Robbie Keane - scored a lot of goals, never really connected with him.
  • Jermain Defoe - top class player, always gave his best for us and in fact every club he played for. Should have more England caps than he has.
  • Aaron Lennon - Very over rated by the vast majotity.
  • Tom Huddlestone - Superb player. Best passer since Hoddle, badly used at Spurs.
  • Michael Carrick - Did ok at Utd.
  • Wilson Palacios - Pass.
  • Dimitar Berbatov - Class player however, the sulking will forever tarnish his time with us in my opinion.
  • William Gallas - Despite his Woolwich background, did a steady job for us.
  • Rafael van der Vaart - Decent player. Would have loved to have seen him join us a couple of years earlier.
  • Luka Modrić - Good player, did some sulking too however, decided to stay an extra year rather than go to Chavs and got a move to Madrid, so not as badly thought of as Berbatov.
  • Gareth Bale - Able to run really fast with the ball. Progressed into a much more complete player at Madrid.
  • Emmanuel Adebayor- Was unplayable when he could be bothered. Sadly he couldn't be bothered most of the time.
  • Nabil Bentaleb - Had the potential to be a top class player. Still only in his early 20s.
 
  • Darren Anderton - Legend, seems like a decent bloke.
  • Sol Campbell - Cunt
  • Robbie Keane - Like him, did well for us.
  • Jermain Defoe - Legend
  • Aaron Lennon - Loved him as a player, despite his limitations. Did meet him once and seemed like a bit of a dick, maybe that was to do with his personal issues.
  • Tom Huddlestone - Cult hero, should of done better. Met him a couple of times in Leeds when he was at Hull, good bloke.
  • Michael Carrick - Great player, should have been an England regular.
  • Wilson Palacios - Don't really have an opinion.
  • Dimitar Berbatov - Wonderful player, gutted when he left.
  • William Gallas - Hated him when he joined, always gave his all so don't really have an issue with him. Clearly liked living in London.
  • Rafael van der Vaart - Seems like a twat, but enjoyed his time at the club.
  • Luka Modrić - One of the best midfielders in the world, deserved to win things for his talent.
  • Gareth Bale - Not a legend, but loved him when he played for us. Hated how he left, now fairly ambivalent.
  • Emmanuel Adebayor - Twat
  • Nabil Bentaleb - Disappointed it didn't work out, now don't care.

Love love love super Robbie Keane...what a player!
Gotta lot of love for Lennon and also van de vart
Lots of players on the list I enjoyed watching play but don't hold a place in my heart like the ones I mentioned above.

I also loved sol Campbell....controversial I know and sure I will get some abuse but throughout his time in the club I thought he was great.

  • Darren Anderton - one of my first heroes
  • Sol Campbell - Hitler
  • Robbie Keane - Incredible talent, leaving us hurt his career.
  • Jermain Defoe - Legend on and off the field. Unlucky to be in a side with Berba and Keane but will be remembered for longer and more fondly than both.
  • Aaron Lennon - was a good servant given his limited ability. Scored some big goals. Wish him all the best.
  • Tom Huddlestone - great technique, not fit enough to start regularly.
  • Michael Carrick - we need him now, was our best player before he left, used us as a stepping stone.
  • Wilson Palacios - battler, nice guy, feel sorry for him for how his career went after the tragedy. Mediocre player.
  • Dimitar Berbatov - Genius. Could of played for anyone in Europe on his day.
  • William Gallas - Hated the signing, grew fond of him after Woolwich away and Milan at WHL. Still Woolwich though.
  • Rafael van der Vaart - love love love him. Still wish he never left.
  • Luka Modrić - wish he didn't act up before he left but he was too good for us and deserved a move. He was already one of the best cm's in the world.
  • Gareth Bale - Nothing but love for what he did in a Spurs shirt. Hope and pray he never wears another premier league teams shirt.
  • Emmanuel Adebayor - mercanary, wasted talent. Owner of the best goal celebration of all time.
  • Nabil Bentaleb - It looked so promising, still baffled as to what went wrong.

Surprised how many are a bit meh on Carrick. Didn't stay long enough to be remembered that fondly but an absolutely fantastic footballer.
