Season summary

A dismal start to the season cost Glenn Hoddle his job and he was sacked as manager on 21 September after two-and-a-half years at the helm. Director of Football David Pleat took over first team duties until the end of the season, but was unable to inspire Tottenham to a challenge for European qualification nor either of the cup competitions, and a 14th-place finish in the final table was Tottenham's lowest since 1998. New Sporting Director Frank Arnesen and head coach Jacques Santini were appointed at the end of the season to bring some hope to fans of a club that had so far underachieved in almost every season since the 1991 FA Cup triumph.
