Spurs badge

Tottenham Hotspur was founded in 1882 and play their home games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The stadium is in North London and has a capacity of 62303. Tottenham's nickname is 'Spurs' and the team plays in white shirts, navy-blue shorts and white socks. Tottenham are sometimes called 'The Lilywhites' due to the colour of their shirts. The current manager is Jose Mourinho, who is managing his third Premier club after a spell at Manchester United and a very successful time at Chelsea.

Hugo Lloris is the French number one.

Tottenham are famous for their success in the FA Cup, winning the competition eight times, but their most recent trophy was the League Cup, in 2009. In 1963, they became the first British club to win a European Competition (the European Cup Winners’ Cup), and since then have won the UEFA Cup (now the Europa League) twice. Tottenham have always been famous for playing exciting, attacking football. For the last few years, Tottenham have continued that tradition, with Premier League stars such as Dele Alli and Cristian Eriksen, playing some great football and Harry Kane, with over 100 Premier League goals, shooting Spurs to success.

"If you don’t win anything, you have had a bad season’’ - Bill Nicholson, ex-Tottenham Manager.

Tottenham’s ground is in North London, so lots of Spurs fans come from this area and the regions around it. There are many other clubs in London, and Tottenham have strong rivalries with Chelsea and West Ham United, but their closest and strongest rival is North London neighbours, Arsenal.

Tottenham's name comes from the name of a 14th-century man from Northumberland, Sir Harry Hotspur (thanks for the correction MonkeyHeaven), who featured in one of Shakespeare’s plays, Henry the Fourth. He was a soldier, and a very fierce fighter and his descendants owned land in the Tottenham Marshes which became Tottenham. So, the team from Tottenham adopted this name and became Tottenham Hotspur, which is shortened to ‘Spurs’.

Prediction 2020/21: 6th

Key player: Harry Kane

If Harry Cane can't pull the whole team to enter the top 4 then I don't know who is going to do that. They have a good streak, but it still isn't the winning team. They have to face their fears and start winning derbies. Otherwise, they'll stay where they are.

I agree with you up to a point, but they've got nice players, besides Hurricane: a goal-keeping magician Hugo Lloris, a constantly solid defender Toby Alderweireld, a rising star in midfield Dele Alli and a wonderful set piece taker Christian Eriksen.

Thanks nikosonris. I think only Adebayor was playing regularly for Spurs in the 2012/13 season! The answer, of course, was Harry Kane. Do you think the amount of goals Kane scored last year was a fluke?
