TOTTENHAM’S most-recent league title victory is closer to the reign of Queen Victoria than the present day.
Spurs have only ever won the top-flight twice – with the latest coming in the 1960-61 season.

Since that day more than 60 years ago, a whopping 22,003 days have passed.
Incredibly, Tottenham‘s 1961 win fell exactly 22,000 days after the death of Queen Victoria.
That means Spurs’ most-recent league win came closer to the Victorian era than it does the present in a truly shocking stat.
Tottenham are in the midst of a dreadful trophy drought across the board.
The club’s last major trophy came in the 2007-08 season when they lifted the League Cup.
Spurs also won the League Cup in 1998-99.
But you have to go back to 1990-91 for the last time the North Londoners won the FA Cup – beating Nottingham Forest 2-1 after extra-time.
Tottenham won the Uefa Cup in 1983-84, along with two more FA Cup crowns in the 80s.

But in terms of league crowns, Spurs are trophyless in a little over SIX DECADES.
Tottenham finished second in the Premier League in 2016-17, coming in third in 2015-16 and 2017-18.
But Mauricio Pochettino, boss for all three of those seasons, has since been sacked – with his replacement, Jose Mourinho, also leaving.
But with star man Harry Kane expected to leave this summer, Tottenham’s top-flight drought looks likely to continue for some time.
