Season summary[edit]

Glenn Hoddle's return to White Hart Lane as manager was seen by many as the revival of Tottenham after many seasons of mediocrity. An early lead in the Worthington Cup final saw Spurs fans filled with hope that Hoddle's comeback would result in instant success, but Blackburn Rovers turned the tables to win 2–1 and Tottenham's silverware bid was ended. Unremarkable Premiership form ended their UEFA Cup hopes and they had to settle for ninth place in the final table.
