Tottenham have consistently performed since the introduction of the Premier League and during the last twenty years or so Spurs fans have seen some quite simply wonderful players grace White Hart Lane.
However there have also been some absolute stinkers during this time. It’s not surprising as for every polished gem, every team makes an absolutely inexplicable piece of recruitment; signings that have left Spurs fans scratching their heads at the very thought of the player wearing the famous white jersey.
With no match this weekend, Spurs supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern have today spent the long Sunday afternoon trying to decide on the ten players who they believe have been the top transfer misfits at the club. These are the players who despite having a decent reputation when signing either never fulfilled the potential or transfer fee paid for their services.
All of these signings leave Spurs fans wondering what the then manager even saw in the player and asking themselves ‘why did we sign him?’. If you notice, Glenn Hoddle’s signings feature quite a lot in the list and you have to question why the club even had a scouting network when he was in charge at White Hart Lane!
