Though the club may not have the success that many of its other big six rivals have, Tottenham Hotspur are one of the most illustrious clubs in all of English football. Formed in 1882, the Spurs won its first FA Cup in 1901, and from there, have managed to home a number of domestic and European honors over the years. That said, Spurs have had some of the biggest names in football on their starting XI. Recently, Spurs had one of the best players in the Premier League in Gareth Bale. Purchased from Southampton, Bale became one of the most decorated players in the league, taking home the PFA Player of the Year twice and carrying Tottenham to the Champions League. At the time of his transfer to Real Madrid, he was the highest transferred player in history.

Who are considered some of the greatest Spurs of all time? Other Tottenham legends include Dave Mackay, Glenn Hoddle and Jimmy Greaves. These players are considered some of the finest in league history, and with good reason. Their innovation has led Tottenham to trophies in every decade since the 1960s.
