Tottenham Hotspur is one of the oldest clubs in English football history and with UEFA Champions League football secured last season, Harry Redknapp will lead his team into the new season with renewed optimism.
Harry Redknapp led Spurs in doing what Everton, Aston Villa and they themselves had failed to do despite several close calls in recent years – break the stranglehold of the big four in the Premier League on the UEFA Champions League qualifying places. It was a massive achievement secured by beating their nearest rivals, Manchester City, at the end of the season.
Spurs confirmed that they mean to continue their progress by making some important summer signings. Rafael van der Vaart arrived from Real Madrid and at 27 years old, his goal-scoring record from an attacking midfield position will be a vital addition to Redknapp’s squad. Defender William Gallas moved across the English capital from Arsenal whilst Brazilian defensive midfielder Sandro signed from European Champions Inter.
Jermaine Defoe and Peter Crouch both travelled to South Africa with England although whilst Defoe got his name in the World Cup scoresheet, Crouch managed less than half an hour of playing time. Both will play key roles in Spurs challenge during the current season. Team captain Robbie Keane can again prove his worth as a goal-scorer and club captain Ledley King will hope to remain injury-free.
With names such as Huddleston, Bale, Pavlyuchenko and Lennon in the squad plus a host of quality top internationals, the chance to retain and even improve on their league position is within their grasp.
As with most athletic clubs in Europe, Tottenham was founded years ago, in 1882, by a group of boys looking for a gathering spot for athletic competitions. It wasn’t until almost thirty years later, however, that the team was finally allowed to play in the high-level of division one football in England. Their rise to the first league was immediate, as they were one of the top teams in the second league in their first season. And although their stay in the Premier League has been anything but permanent, Tottenham still boasts one of the finest football histories in all of the premiership.
In the first decade of its existence in major competition, the team was hurt by depression and poor financial situations. This led Tottenham to be consistently at the bottom of their league or in the second league for a good deal of the 1910s. This trend, however, was seemingly snapped when the team won their first division two title, in 1920. Unfortunately, the team failed to keep high quality of play for very long in division one and found themselves relegated again and again despite their best efforts.
Indeed the lack of success in division one had to be frustrating to fans of Tottenham Hotspurs FC. It wasn’t until 1951, nearly 70 years after the club was created, that the team was able to hoist their first Division One championship trophy. And this accomplishment has only been repeated once, as the team has continued its wildly inconsistent play even after achieving the greatest success any team can in their own league.
All in all, Tottenham has two division one championships, two division two championships, eight FA Cup trophies, and a handful of other small victories. They have never won the prestigious Champion’s League, as other English teams have, and have never really had consistent wide-spread success at any point in their long history. Still, even with their bouts with relegation and failure, their fans remain loyal and supportive. It is a testament to a good football club when the crowds are full in both the good and the bad times.
