3. Bobby Smith [1955-1964]
Bobby Smith was part of Tottenham’s legendary double-winning side. He was a prolific goalscorer from the start and would go on to form a pairing with Les Allen that resulted in that double success in 1960/61. He also won the 1962 FA Cup and the 1963 European Cup Winners Cup with the club.
Smith formed a formidable partnership with Jimmy Greaves toward the end of his career. His goal scoring ratio of 208 goals in 317 appearances for Spurs and 13 in 15 matches for England, speaks a lot about his abilities.
2. Harry Kane [2011-Present]
A relatively slow starter, not making himself a regular in the Spurs line-up until the age of 21, he’s now second in the club’s all-time scoring records with over 240 goals. His instincts in front of the goal and the ability to take a shot from anywhere in the Penalty Box made him superior to the other strikers of the League.
He has won the Premier League Golden Boot thrice. He also won the Golden Boot in the FIFA World Cup 2018. The Tottenham Hotspur star striker scored 56 goals in 2017, which was the highest among the top 5 European Leagues.
1. Jimmy Greaves [1961–1970]
The greatest goalscorer in Spurs’ history and, arguably in British football. Jimmy Greaves’s record speaks for itself – an amazing 266 goals in 380 games for Tottenham in the league, FA and League Cups and European competition.
Quick with superb control and positional sense, Greaves was simply a natural goalscorer famed for coolly rolling the ball into the net rather than blasting it. Whilst with Spurs he won the FA Cup in 1961–62 and 1966–67, the Charity Shield in 1962 and 1967, and the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1962–63; he never won a league title but did help Spurs to a second-place finish in 1962–63.
