Our voting for Tottenham Hotspur's Worst XI of the Decade has finally come to an end. This is the final position we'll be voting on and it looks like we timed everything pretty well giving that the season opens on Saturday against Everton. Thankfully, none of the following players will be counted on to score goals in that opening fixture.

The following list is short, but it should be an excellent competition between these two "strikers". If you feel that anyone has been left off this list let me know in the comments and I'll make an effort to remedy the situation. Remember, they have to have played this position for Tottenham Hotspurs since the 2001-2002 season.

Helder Postiga: Coming off a decent tenure with Porto the Portugese striker joined Tottenham Hotspur for £6.25 million back in 2003. He was a colossal failure. He didn't adapt well to the English game and in only 19 appearances he managed one goal. Spurs sold Postiga back to Porto the following season, taking a loss on the fee, but acquiring Pedro Mendes in the process.

Serhiy Rebrov: The Ukranian striker rose to fame as Andriy Shevchenko's strike partner at Dynamo Kyiv in the 1990's. In 2000 he moved to White Hart Lane for £11 million. He was purchased by then-manager George Graham and when he was sacked Glenn Hoddle rarely played Rebrov. The man who is the Ukranian Premier League's all-time leading scorer managed only ten goals in 60 appearances for Tottenham Hotspur. He left on a free in 2004 to rejoin West Ham where he was similarly disappointing.
