1. Everything about Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur is known and loved around the world. Still, there are certain things you didn't know about the Spurs. Did you know, for example, that Tottenham Hotspur was the only ’non-league’ club to win the FA Cup? And which stadium was the club's first stadium? Or which Germans have played or are playing for the club? You can learn more about this in this article.

1.1. The story of Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur was founded in 1882 by students from the local elementary school in collaboration with the Hotspur Cricket Club under the name Hotspur FC. Two years later the name was changed to Tottenham Hotspur. In 1895 the club joined the Southern Football League and became a professional football club. Three years later, the former stadium, River Lee, was replaced by Northumberland Park, so that entrance fees could be demanded from the spectators. The club moved to today's stadium in 1899: White Hart Lane. The stadium was rebuilt, so Tottenham Hotspur had to move to Wembley Stadium.

In 1900 Tottenham Hotspur won the Southern Football League and in 1901 even the FA Cup. This made the Spurs the first club to win the FA Cup as a ’non-League’ club. This was thanks to John Cameron. He had come from Everton FC and was the Spurs player, secretary and manager.

In 1908/1909 the Spurs were allowed to appear in the Second Division for the first time. Thanks to a second place in the Second Division, the Spurs were allowed to move up to the First Division: the highest league in England. Because of the First World War, English football was suspended from 1914 to 1919. The Spurs were relegated to last season prior to the temporary suspension but managed to get promoted again when the games resumed.

In the 1950/1951 season, the Tottenham Hotspurs became English champions for the first time. Bill Nicholson was part of this master team. Bill was with Tottenham Hotspur from 1936 to 2004. He started his career with the Spurs as a player, became a coach and manager of the club and ended his career as president of the club. In 1960/1961 he won the first double of the 20th century with the Spurs. The Spurs won both the 1st division and the FA Cup. Two years later, with winning the European Cup Winners' Cup, the club's first European success followed. The League Cup and the UEFA Cup were won for the first time in 1971 and 1982. After losing to Feyenoord in the UEFA Cup final, Bill Nicholson resigned as coach in 1974. With 8 trophies he is the most successful coach in the club's history.

1984 managed the Spurs under coach Burkinshaw a second win of the UEFA Cup. After this success, no further national or European titles were won. In recent seasons, the club failed to become champions despite many good seasons. Participation in the Champions League in 2010 was the first time in the club's history that the Spurs played in this tournament.

1.2. Germans with the Spurs

No German currently has a contract with Spurs. In the past, however, some Germans played at Tottenham. Among them is soccer legend Jürgen Klinsmann. Klinsmann played for Spurs from 1994-1995 and again from 1997 to 1998. Another German at Spurs was Christian Ziege, who played there from 2001 to 2004. Steffen Freund played for Tottenham Hotspur between 1999 and 2003. After his active career, he returned from 2012 to 2014 as assistant coach to André Villas-Boas. After his time as an assistant trainer, he worked as an international technical coordinator at Spurs from 2014 to 2015. The last German to play for Spurs is Lewis Holtby. He played for the club between 2013 and 2014.
