Tottenham’s Best Player of 2016

Despite the disappointment of not progressing past the first stage of the Champions League, Tottenham fans have to be happy about the way the calendar year has gone.

They were genuine title contenders right up until May and TFF felt that it was there for the taking for a team who seemed to outrun and overpower all comers before running out of steam at the pivotal moment.

They were a great unit and there are too top performers to detail here but let’s give you our shortlist and then pick a winner.


Danny Rose

It seems like an eternity since Rose announced himself with a humdinger of a goal against Arsenal at White Hart Lane in 2010.

Consistency is key for any young talent and over the last 18 months Rose has shown that in abundance. He’s now a key man for Tottenham and England with his pace, power and meticulous defending on the left flank.

Harry Kane

Always looks a bit tired to us these days and we do hope he hasn’t done too much much too young.

But 64 goals in 126 games for Tottenham and still only 23, Kane can become a legend if he stays at Tottenham.

Hugo Lloris

Was traditionally known for his sweeper keeper antics and while there is still some evidence of this, he seems more measured these days. Easily one of the top three keepers in the league and he’s been particularly consistent in 2016.


Dele Alli

What a year for the young man and what a find. Goalscoring midfielders are like diamond dust and they are so few and far between these days.

But Alli is that man. At 20 the 6ft 2in midfielder already has a quite wonderful understanding of how to play football. He doesn’t look like he needs much coaching as he floats around the pitch in an ever dangerous fashion, linking up play and scoring brilliant goals.

16 goals in just 50 Premier League outings is a better stat than those of Gerrard and Lampard – two of the best in the business in that position.

Tottenham have a true gem and he surely has to be player of 2016 for the club.

Spurs fans: agreed?
