Tottenham Hotspur has long been a club that appears to be on the brink of great success but unable to pull it off. In recent seasons, they have finished second and third in the Premier League and runners-up in the Champions League.
At first, it seemed that Mauricio Pochettino would be the manager to lead Tottenham to success. But a spate of bad performances left the team in an extremely disappointing position, and Jose Mourinho replaced him. Although Mourinho has had a tough go of it in recent years, his success in the Premier League is well-documented.
Despite this, a poor start to the 2020-21 season has left the team in an unfavorable position in the eyes of sportsbooks. They are positioned behind the likes of Everton and Leicester City in the race to win the championship. However, you never know when a team will surprise you.

Tottenham had a terrible 2019-20 Premier League campaign after coming off a handful of seasons, where it looked like the team had a very good chance of winning the league. Their struggles last season have led sports betting sites hitting the team with long odds of winning.
Long odds are great if you think that the team has a good chance of winning. However, they have had a bit of a shaky start to the 2020-21 campaign, picking up losses against Everton and Watford.
Mourinho is a manager who has won the League three times with Chelsea. He came close again with Manchester United in 2018 when United finished second. Both Chelsea and Manchester United seem to have more significant bank accounts, though.
Tottenham have a squad filled with great players, including Tanguy Ndombele, Sergio Reguilon, Heung Min, Giovani Lo Celso, Dele Alli, Gareth Bale, and Harry Kane. So, it could happen. We don’t think it will.
Tottenham isn’t a team where the role of the manager is akin to Spinal Tap’s drummer. The team seems to stick with its managers up until a point. After all, Mauricio Pochettino had been in charge for five years before Jose Mourinho replaced him.
The trigger before somebody eventually gets fired usually seems to be a spate of lousy league results or getting below the sixth position on the log.
It is unclear how long Mourinho will last in his new role. But should he be fired; it is unclear who Tottenham will look to next to lead the team?
A good guess is perhaps Rafael Benitez as he has a habit of being hired after Mourinho gets fired (see Chelsea, Inter Milan, and Real Madrid’s managerial histories).
Jose Mourinho likened winning the Europa League to Hamilton winning Formula Two, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a tournament he will not help the team win. Overall, Tottenham has minimal European success. They have only won the Europa League on two occasions with the last win coming in the 1980s.
Although winning the Europa League two seasons after making the finals of the Champions League may be a bit underwhelming, it is still a trophy. And thus far, the team seems on track to give a good performance in the tournament. Also, this is a trophy that Mourinho has already won twice with two different teams.
Although Tottenham has become a very competitive team in the last few years, they have yet to show massive levels of success. Their last trophy win came in 2008 when they won the League Cup, but fans are hoping that they will return to their former success soon.
Here is a list of the team’s achievements so far:
- 2 Premier League titles (last in 1961)
- 2 Second Division titles (last in 1950)
- 8 FA Cup titles (last in 1991)
- 4 League Cup titles (last in 2008)
- 7 FA Community Shield titles (last in 1991)
- 1 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup title (last in 1963, the tournament is now defunct)
- 2 UEFA Cup/Europa League titles (last in 1984)
Yes, Tottenham has won multiple trophies. However, their most recent win was in 2008. Before that, the team was known as a side that had done well in the 1950s and 1960s.
The last trophy Tottenham won was an English Football League trophy. Or, as it was then known, the Carling Cup.
Danny Blanchflower is considered the team’s best-ever player. If this name sounds unfamiliar, it is because he played for the team in the 1950s.
The ENIC Group owns Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
Yes, Tottenham has been relegated before, but not since the English Premier League took its current format in 1992.
Jimmy Greaves is Tottenham’s top goalscorer of all-time. Harry Kane is the leading active goalscorer, though.
