Last season made for fairly grim watching for Spurs fans.
While their North London rivals Arsenal were giving Manchester City a race for the title, Tottenham were stumbling their way to an eighth-place finish, losing 14 times in the league - their highest tally since the 2008/09 campaign.
Skipper Harry Kane did the heavy lifting once more, scoring 30 league goals, but it makes for a rather worrying thought as to how Tottenham would have coped without him, given the uncertainty over his future at the club.
The England skipper did remarkably well considering all around him was essentially malfunctioning.
The highlight came in early February when Kane broke Jimmy Greaves' goal record in a home win over would-be champions Man City.
Six weeks later and, after tossing away a 3-1 lead at Southampton, Antonio Conte signed his own exit papers with an extraordinary post-game rant that attacked everything from his players' mentality to a long-standing culture of underachievement at the club.
Cristian Stellini briefly took charge but, like his fellow Italian, made for the exit as Ryan Mason was left to oversee a limp over the finish line and a failure to even secure any form of European football.
Tottenham started life in superb fashion under new boss Ange Postecoglou.
The Australian has implemented an exciting style of play, made some shrewd signings and he initially guided Spurs to the top of the Premier League after 10 games.
However, key injuries and suspensions contributed to a loss of form and Postecoglou will be delighted to have many of his players back fit again.
The ongoing struggles of Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle leave Tottenham on the brink of a top-five spot - if not one better.
