Alan Brazil -.
Terry Gibson Tenacious striker, who made his way to the first team at White Hart Lane through the youth system, but left to join the Sky Blues to get more first team action in 1983.
Jimmy Holmes Youth product at Highfield Road, who became a stylish central defender, who was good on the ball.  Joined Tottenham in 1977.
Robbie Keane Worked through the Wolves youth system and when it looked like he was set for a move to a big club, he moved across the Midlands to Coventry in August 1999.  From there, the prolific striker moved to Internazionale in Milan, where he had a tough time, before joining Leeds United on loan and then permanently.  Tottenham snapped him up from Elland Road for 7 million and he went on to play for Liverpool for a short while before returning to White Hart Lane.  In 2011 he was allowed to leave to join LA Galaxy in the American MLS, although he did have a short spell back in England on loan to Aston Villa in 2012.
Keith Osgood Spurs Youth product, who made his break-through into the team as a centre-half before moving to Coventry in 1978.
Steve Sedgley A youngster in Spurs' youth set up, Steve Sedgley went to Coventry to get his break and then re-joined Tottenham in 1989, after featuring against us in the 1987 FA Cup final.
Danny Thomas Attacking full back, who had a great career until ended by a 'challenge' from Gavin McMahon of QPR.  Started with Coventry City and made his name there before he signed for Spurs in June 1983.
