Who scored the fastest ever Spurs goal?

Tottenham Hotspur legend Ledley King, who we have deservedly put into our Classic Spurs XI, holds the record for scoring the fastest ever Premier League goal.

King scored the opener against Bradford City in a staggering 10 seconds. The game was played on the 9th December 2000 and resulted in a 3-3 draw. King volleyed the deflected shot in from around 20 yards out. Long live the King of the Lane! He is, however, the jointer-holder of the ten-second title. Newcastle’s Alan Shearer achieved the same feat against Manchester City on January 18th, 2003.

Most amount of goals Spurs have scored in a game?

The most amount of goals Tottenham Hotspur have scored in a single game is 13, in an incredible 13-2 win over Crewe Alexandre in the FA Cup on the 3rd February 1960.

The clash between Spurs and Crewe was a 4th round replay after the sides previously drew 2-2. The match was played at White Hart Lane in front of a whopping 64,365 spectators. Bobby Smith scored four of the goals, Les Allen scored five, Tommy Harmer scored one, and Cliff Jones scored three!

Who is the Spurs captain?

The current captain for Tottenham Hotspur is Hugo Lloris. Hugo joined Spurs back in 2012 and became the captain in August 2015. Mauricio Pochettino named Younès Kaboul as his Captain during the opening of the 2014-15 season, but the defender lost favour in the Spurs side and was subsequently sold to Sunderland.

Hugo Lloris: Tottenham Hotspur Captain

Hugo Lloris has been an influential component of the Spurs defence. During the 2016-17 campaign, he only let in 26 goals all season, only 9 of which were at home and kept 15 clean sheets. This was Tottenham Hotspur’s best ever defensive display in the club’s history.

Lloris is also skipper of his national team and captained France to World Cup glory in 2018.

The current vice captains at Spurs are Harry Kane and Jan Vertonghen with one of them deputising for Lloris when he is unavailable for selection.

How much did Tottenham Hotspur spend on the new stadium?

Tottenham Hotspur Football Club have not disclosed an exact cost of the construction of the new stadium. The Northumberland Project, which is what the stadium construction plans are named, was originally set to cost approximately £450m when the plans were originally commissioned. However recent reports in August 2018 suggested that the build will cost around £850m with some parts of the British media claiming that the cost of the Spurs New Stadium could rise to over £1bn.

How are Spurs funding the new Stadium?

Tottenham Hotspur have acquired loans from various banks of around £400m, to be repaid over the course of 5 years, to pay for a substantial amount of the cost. The club have stated that they look to fund the rest of the cost themselves.

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium atmosphere

The new Spurs stadium has been specifically designed to retain, and even enhance, the electric atmosphere that filled the four walls of White Hart Lane.

One worry for most fans when a club upgrades in stadium size, or moves into an Olympic or national stadium, as was the case with West Ham, that the stands may be further away from the pitch. The Spurs New Stadium, in fact, been designed with this worry in mind and has sought to minimise any sort of distance between the action and the spectators. The first row will be just under eight metres away from the touchline along the whole circumference of the pitch. Spurs have designed a single-tier stand, which will be the ‘home-end’, and will be approximately six metres from the touchline.

What is Spurs new stadium called?

The official name of the Spurs New Stadium is the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The announcement was made in July 2018, and the ‘A’ of the word ‘Stadium’ will be stylised to create an arrow pointing north, to represent the North London heritage of Spurs.

What does the Tottenham Hotspur motto mean?

In Latin, the Tottenham Hotspur motto is Audere est Facere and in English, this translates to,

‘To Dare is to Do’

The club motto appeared on the Spurs crest between 1956 and 2005. It was removed however during the 2006 rebrand of the club image. The words were similarly showcased on various billboards at White Hart Lane on the West Stand. The decision to remove the motto from the badge was simply down to wanting to modernise the emblem. Latin and modernity don’t usually co-align. This was a decision of Daniel Levy and was made two years into his tenure at Tottenham Hotspur F.C. The club nontheless endorse the motto as their own.

 Where is the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium?

The Official address of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is 782 High Rd, Tottenham, London, N17 0BX.

Although the Lane will be sorely missed by Spurs fans, the magnificent £1bm Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will build on its legacy as the new home of Tottenham Hotspur. The new stadium stands on the same grounds as White Hart Lane, meaning that the ground is accessible by the same public transport routes.

Nearest tube station to the Spurs ground?

Although Tottenham Hotspur are moving football stadiums, the construction of the new stadium is at the same site as White Hart Lane.

The main tube station near the Tottenham Hotspur football ground is Northumberland Park Station and is an 8-minute walk away. The station has frequent services that connect to the Victoria line underground service at Tottenham Hale station. Northumberland Park station is located in London Travelcard Zone 3.

When did Spurs logo change?

Spurs have changed their logo four times. The first altercation came in 1956. The second change took place in 1983, and Tottenham changed to the club logo it currently has today in 2006.

The Spurs emblem has portrayed a cockerel since the FA Cup final in 1921. The legend dictates that Harry Hotspur, after whom the club is named, had a certain fondness for fighting cocks. In 1956 the Spurs logo included two red lions, the cockerel, a castle, and a collection of trees on the backdrop of a blue shield. The two lions represented the Northumberland Family, of which Harry Hotspur belonged to. The castle is named Bruce Castle and is a local historical structure located near the stadium. The trees on the shield represent the Seven Sisters. The motto, inscribed at the bottom of the emblem, reads ‘Audere Est Facere’ which translates from Latin as ‘To dare is to do’. This has been the club’s motto ever since.

The Tottenham badge was then altered again in 1983. The blue shield was removed, as were the castle and trees. The motto was placed on the upon the backdrop of a yellow scroll that lay beneath the fighting cockerel, of which perched over a ball containing the letters ‘THFC’.

Why are Tottenham Hotspur called Spurs?

When the club was formed in 1882, it was originally entitled the ‘Hotspur Football Club’. The club was established by a few school boys who were members of the Hotspur cricket club which was formed two years earlier.

Sir Harry Hotspur

The Hotspur football club became Tottenham Hotspur in 1884. The name of the football club, as well as the name of the Hotspur cricket club, are both said to be named in honour of Sir Henry Percy. Sir Henry Percy, customarily known as Harry Hotspur, was a late medieval nobleman. His Northumberland family owned the land that covered the Tottenham Marshes. Henry Percy was a key figure in William Shakespeare’s Henry IV, and his legend – and legacy – has been established in the local area ever since the 14th century.

For many years, followers of English football have used ‘Spurs’ and ‘Tottenham Hotspur’ interchangeably to refer to the North London club. Tottenham Hotspur are also nicknamed ‘the Lilywhites’ due to the historical all-white shirt that the team has always sported. However, this is used far less to refer to Tottenham than ‘Spurs’ is, which is probably used just as frequently as the clubs official title.

Have Spurs won a European cup?

Tottenham Hotspur won the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup on the 15th May 1963. Subsequently, they first won the UEFA Cup (now the Europa League) on the 17th May 1972, and again on the 23rd May 1984.

What is Tottenham Hotspur’s highest ever Premier League points tally?

Spurs achieved their highest ever points tally in the 2016/17 Premier League campaign with a record 86 points.

This was Tottenham’s last ever season at White Hart Lane. The historic home of the Lilywhites was demolished at the end of the campaign to make way for the new stadium that is currently being constructed on the same site. During the 2016/17 campaign, Tottenham remained undefeated at home; this was not only in the Premier League but in all competitions. They won the last 14 league matches at the Lane.

In the 38 games played during the 2016/17 Premier League season, Spurs won 26 games, drew 8, and lost 4. Tottenham finished with a goal difference of +60 and finished 7 points behind the League champions, Chelsea.

Harry Kane played a crucial part in Tottenham’s success and won the Golden Boot for this campaign with a total of 29 goals. Dele Alli scored 18 and Heung-Min Son got 14.

Where is the Tottenham Hotspur training ground?

The Tottenham Hotspur training ground is located on Hotspur Way in Enfield. Both the first team and the development squad regularly use these facilities.

The training ground incorporates a list of features that are designed to maximise the performance of all Spurs players. These include the following: a pool and hydrotherapy complex, an altitude room, specialist rehabilitation suites, an indoors artificial pitch, and 15 grass outdoor pitches. The first team pitch is designed, like for like, to the exact specification of the pitch at White Hart Lane. No doubt this will be updated to identically match the specifications of the pitch once Spurs have moved into their new stadium.
