GLORY GLORY

And if, you know, your history... as the famous song goes, you'll know that it has been highs and lows, thrills and spills, joy and pain at Tottenham Hotspur sice 1882!

And if you love your history, Club History is the area of the website for you.
In this section we recall some of the legends who have pulled on the famous white shirt — from John Cameron and our first FA Cup win as a non-league side in 1901 and Vivian Woodward, arguably our first superstar, who helped take us into the Football League in 1908 through to 1990s heroes Paul Gascoigne and Jurgen Klinsmann.

We take a look at some of the great games that shaped our history and the managers who were in charge — look up our complete list of managers, chairmen and secretaries for managers’ profiles.

If you want to know what happened when, turn to our year-by-year guide and we’ve also a complete list of everything we’ve won under honours and records.

We will also be trying to find out what stars of old are up to in our feature Where Are They Now — goalkeeper Pat Jennings helped up kick-off this section in a video special.

Famous names roll off the tongue at the Lane — Nicholson, Rowe, Ramsey, Blanchflower, Mackay, Greaves, Jennings, Mullery, Chivers, Hoddle, Villa, Ardiles, Gascoigne, Klinsmann and Ginola — and this is where we pay tribute to them.

Remember, it’s all about the glory…
