Latest Spurs videos from Sky Sports

whilst it is great that we have supplied so many players, teams like United, I would imagine, have supplied far more essential players (Robson, both Charlton's, Beckham, Scholes, Ferdinand, G.Neville, Rooney, Stiles spring to mind immediately)

Another good barometer might be how many caps those players received (Caulker, Gardener and Livermore are all one cap wonders).

Not to belittle the achievement by any stretch - it should be a source of pride.
Jack Charlton was never a Manure player BTW
 
I posted the same link in the Ryan Mason thread - but I think your approach is better as it gets more notice. Quite an achievement, and (as an Englishman) something I am proud of.
It would be nice to see a similar comparison for all of the home countries as well.
Loved the photo of the 4 Spurs players in a huddle congratulating Townsend for finally having a shot that didn't endanger the lives of supporters in the upper tiers!

:)
Cheers Mick :thumbup:

This is how our current crop looks based on the most recent squads...

England:
Walker / Rose / Kane / Mason / Townsend

Under 21s:
Dier / Carroll / Pritchard

Under 19s:
Winks / Alli

Under 17s:
Edwards / Sterling

Isn't Onomah, Walker-Peters and Amos in there as well.
 
Very happy with that list, think Rose deserves a start, at least a sub apparence, looking forward to seeing if Dier can get near thr team as well. Pritchard though I just have such a feeling watching him for Brentford and England U21's that something special might come of that kid.
Yep, Pritchard and Kane may turn out to be the best of our current crop.

Ferdinand and Rooney got their debuts before moving to Manchester, I believe.

Was G.Neville instrumental? I always thought he was an extremely overrated player.
 
Outstanding player. I can't recall a better RB since 1970.
Agreed although Keith Newton wasn't a patch on Cohen. The big guy Anderson wasn't bad, but I'd agree that Neville was a cut above them all.
We haven't had a better left back since Terry Cooper either, he would be worth a fortune nowadays - what an engine that guy had.
