Tottenham face Palace on historic day and another first.

Posted on January 11, 2014 by Random Spurs Supporter

Yet again Tottenham are about to make history as today they will become the FIRST London club in Premiership history to play in 200 derbies yet another first that nobody will ever be able to take away from them and one that will go down in the history books along with many others. Let nobody ever doubt the great history of Tottenham Hotspur  which includes the following amongst others:-

    • Tottenham Hotspur was the FIRST and only non league side to win the FA cup in 1901.
    • Tottenham Hotspur was the FIRST to win the League & FA Cup Double in the 20th Century in 1961.
    • Tottenham Hotspur was the FIRST British team to a major European Trophy in 1963 winning the European Cup Winners Cup.
    • Tottenham Hotspur was the FIRST British team to win Two European Trophies winning the first UEFA Cup in 1974.
    • Tottenham Hotspur was the FIRST British team to win three European Trophies winning the UEFA Cup for the second time after a dramatic penalty shootout at White Hart Lane in 1984.

Before any come to the conclusion that this was all in the distant past it is worth remembering that apart from Manchester United Tottenham are the ONLY other club to have won a major trophy in each of the last 6 decades. Not Arsenal, Not Chelsea and not even Liverpool.

As much as some would have us believe that history is limited to the Premiership years, only began this century or since they came into money from wealthy benefactors, the truth is the truly great clubs have been about for much longer and just as importantly have been winning the big prizes for more than a century.
