The Sun have revealed that it has now been over 22,000 days since Tottenham Hotspur last won a league title.

Tottenham are currently in the midst of one of the biggest trophy droughts in the club’s history, having not won any silverware since the League Cup in 2008.

That is particularly dispiriting for Spurs fans considering that there have been some top teams at the club over the last 13 years, particularly under Harry Redknapp and Mauricio Pochettino.

The North Londoners did look as though they would end their long wait for a league title under Pochettino but the Lilywhites were pipped to the top spot by Leicester City and Chelsea in back-to-back campaigns from 2015 to 2017.

The Sun have now revealed that a whopping 22,003 days have passed since Tottenham last lifted the title in 1960-61.

Interestingly, they note that Spurs’ 1961 win fell exactly 22,000 days after the death of Queen Victoria, meaning that the Lilywhites’ last title win was closer to the Victorian era than it is to the present day.

Spurs Web Opinion

While the Premier League title has been harder to win than ever over the last decade due to the resources some of the teams now have, it is quite unbelievable that we have not won a trophy of any sort over the past decade and a half, where we have seen the best Spurs teams of the Premier League era.
