    most under rated spurs players

    Two or three come to mind, SB, The most notable one for me was a lad called Jimmy Pearce, back in the late sixties/early seventies. He played right midfield, or right wing, and whenever the ball got to him, there was a murmur of disapproval round the ground, and cries of "Don't give it to HIM!" IMO, it was very unwarranted, as he was a very creative player, and later, some of my mates conceded that he wasn't that bad after all! I saw Jim score some good goals, but none better than the one at Selhurst Park...(Yes, I used to go anywhere in those days!)...where he swervd the ball in from a ridiculous angle with the outside of his boot.
    Others who weren't popular,where I used to stand at least were Mickey Hazard, who I thought was a fine player, who had a touch of the Hoddles about him and, before him a nippy winger called Jimmy Neighbour.
    More recently, David Bentley, who I know had more about him than we got to see!
