Tottenham Hotspurs, also known as Spurs, is a professional football team that plays in the English Premier League. The team’s home uniforms are white shirts, navy-blue shorts, and white socks.
Due to the color of the shirts, the team’s players are usually called “The Lilywhites.” Tottenham have always been famous for their intriguing attacking play style and top tier players.
1882 – 1901: Club’s Foundation And Early Years
Tottenham Hotspur Football Club was founded in 1882 by the members of Hotspur Cricket Club. Their Bible class teacher, John Ripsher, became the first president of the club.
The team was initially named Hotspur Football Club and renamed Tottenham Hotspur Football Club in 1884 to avoid having the same name with another London club called Hotspur.
The club became professional on 20 December 1895 and was admitted to Division One of the Southern League in 1896.
1908 – 1955: First Steps In The Football League
In 1908, Tottenham Hotspur successfully stepped into the Football League Second Division and quickly won promotion to the First Division in their first season.
In 1949, a former Tottenham player Arthur Rowe took over as manager and developed a play style called “push and run.” It was proven to be successful as the team came back to the First Division after placing first in the Second Division for the 1949 – 1950 season.
Soon after, the team finished top of the First Division for the 1950 – 1951 season and won their first top tier league championship title. Arthur Rowe resigned in April 1955 after signing the most significant player back then, Danny Blanchflower, who won the FWA Footballer of the Year twice while at the club.
1958 – 1973: The Glory Years
In October 1958, Bill Nicholson became Tottenham’s manager and led the team to their glory days with three major successes in a row, including the Double in 1961, the FA Cup in 1962, and the Cup Winners’ Cup in 1963.
They also won the FA Cup in 1967, the UEFA Cup in 1971-1972, and two League Cups in 1971 and 1973. For 16 years of charge as the club manager, Nicholson had led the team to eight major trophies, making him one of the most successful managers of Tottenham.
1974 – 1991: Ups And Downs
After significant successes in the early 1970s, the team went downhill as they had a poor start in the 1974-1975 season. Soon after that, Tottenham was relegated at the end of the 1976-1977 season with Keith Burkinshaw, replacing Bill Nicholson as the club’s new manager.
Burkinshaw quickly rebuilt the team with new foreign players, which was uncommon at that time, and won two FA Cups in 1981 and 1982, and the UEFA Cup in 1984.
He took charge until Terry Venables took over and led the team to their eighth FA Cup in 1990-1991, making Tottenham the first football club to do so.
1992 – Now: The Premier League
Tottenham was one of five clubs that contributed to the foundation of the Premier League, replacing the First Division as the highest division of British football.
Despite that, the team finished most seasons in the middle place until the late 2000s. In the early 2010s, the club regained their position and finished in the top five under Harry Redknapp’s guidance.
In 2014 Mauricio Pochettino became Tottenham’s head coach and helped the team to claim the second place in the 2016-2017 season, which was their highest place in the league since the 1962-1963 season.
They also successfully stepped into the UEFA Champions League final in the 2018-2019 season and became the third club in London to do so. Sadly the team had a poor start in the 2019-2020 season and the club’s chairman had to replace Pochettino with José Mourinho.
Throughout the history, Tottenham has faced many challenges and gained a remarkable number of achievements, making them one of the most honorable clubs in the world.
In the domestic league, they have won two First Division Championships and two Second Division Championships.
For the Cup competitions, they finished first eight times in the FA Cup, four times in the EFL Cup, and seven times in the FA Charity Shield / FA Community Shield.
And the last of their major honors are in the European League, where they became champions in the UEFA Cup Winner’s Cup once and in the UEFA Cup twice.
With these tremendous achievements, Tottenham Hotspur has gained its top tier place in the football industry and become one of the most popular football clubs around the world.
As a top football club, Tottenham has many talented players like Hugo Lloris (GK), Son Heung-Min (W), Dele Alli (AM), Lucas Moura (W) and the key player Harry Kane (S), along with their famous head coach José Mourinho.
In this season of Premier League, Tottenham is currently positioned in the 8th place after 33 matches with 48 points and 39% of win rate. So far, they have 13 wins, 9 draws, 11 losses, and trailing after Arsenal by 1 point.
In the UEFA Champions League, Tottenham is placed in the 2nd position in group B, having 10 points with 3 wins, 1 draw, and 2 losses.
Despite the spread of the COVID-19, Tottenham has shown no sign of going down as they still keep their training schedule and are aiming for a higher position in the Premier League, especially against their hometown fellow Arsenal, who is just 1 point away.
Tottenham has recently revealed their desired signings and listed 5 potential deals, including Max Aarons from Norwich City, Thiago Silva from Paris St-Germain, Kurt Zouma from Chelsea, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg from Southampton, and Josh King from Bournemouth.
Moreover, Tottenham is highly expected to get into the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League and hopefully will have a high place in this league.
Tottenham Hotspur has gone through a lot in history to stand among the best football teams in the world. With their striking achievements and exciting play style, the team has undoubtedly become one of the most beloved football teams in their fan’s heart.
