In 1900 Spurs lifted their first trophy, having won the Southern League championship before becoming the first non-league club to win the FA Cup trophy in 1901. Spurs made it to the elite division in 1909 and they spent next forty years balancing between the First and Second division.
Spurs won their first ever First Division title in 1951, just one year after gaining promotion from the Second Division and in 1961 they become the first team in 20th century to win the domestic double. During the next two decades, Tottenham won two UEFA Cups, Cup Winners’ Cup, as well as three FA Cups, and in 1974 they were the first English club to have played in three major European finals.
Tottenham Hotspur was one of the founders of the new FA Premier League in 1992 and the same year they signed Paul Gascoine from Lazio for record £5.5 million. The club had mixed success at the end of the 20th and beginning of the 21st century, but they came on the brink of the top 4 finish in 2006, when the controversial defeat to West Ham on the final day of the season saw them miss out on the fourth place to Arsenal.
Spurs finally managed to break into the top 4 in 2009/2010 season, with the 1:0 away win over Manchester City on the final day of the season ensuring them Champions League qualification. The team led by Harry Redknapp managed to reach the quarter-finals of the competition, where they were stopped by Real Madrid.
After struggling to break into the side following the arrival from Southampton, exciting winger Gareth Bale has developed into a key player at White Hart Lane, with club chiefs doing their best to fend off interest from big European clubs. Midfield maestro Luka Modric is also an essential part of the squad, and he, too, has been courted by big Premier League sides. Defender Michael Dawson and forward Rafael van der Vaart are also considered key players in Harry Redknapp’s team, as is captain Ledley King, when being fit to play.
