As per all of the offerings by Under Armour in the Spurs pantheon; this shirt is made in the Under Armour ‘Heat Gear’ mould, and consequently the dimensions of this shirt may in fact be better suited to a size medium.
After the previous season’s shirt reintroduced yellow to in the palette of the home shirt, this shirt was strictly white and navy, with a striking seatbelt design that is broken up with white stripes being the centre piece of this seasons offering. This shirt would use navy trim on the sleeves and bring back a traditional collar. Under Armour would hit the money in what was a never before used design by ‘the Lillywhite’s’, and one that will no doubt live forever in the memory of Spurs fans!
Finishing just 6 points off the top 4 in the 2014-15 season; Mauricio Pochettino’s debut season in charge of Tottenham would also feature a League Cup Final appearance, however, the biggest breakthrough was the emergence of Harry Kane, with the young English striker scoring 31 goals. There would be 5 major acquisitions in the summer with: Kevin Wimmer, Kieran Trippier, Toby Alderweireld, Clinton N’Jie and Heung-min Son, The season would start with a narrow 1-0 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford, and they would have to wait until 13/09/15 to get their first win of the league season, when they beat Sunderland 1-0. Harry Kane’s first league goal would come in the club’s 4-1 demolition of Manchester City on 26/09/15 and would go a total of 14 games unbeaten in a row, before being beaten by Newcastle on December 13th. By this point Spurs had successfully reached the Last 16 of the Europa League, and would end 2015 having won 3 on the bounce to move within 4 points of league leaders Leicester City. Despite failing to capitalise on that momentum to start the year, Spurs would get their first win of the year against Sunderland, starting a 6 match winning run, as they propelled themselves into 2nd place. Draws with Arsenal, Liverpool and West Brom, left Spurs in a must win situation against Chelsea on 02/05/16, where anything less than 3 points would see Leicester City crowned as champions. A game strewn in bad-blood would end 2-2 at Stamford Bridge. Before back to back defeats would see Arsenal usurp them in 2nd place to conclude the 2015-16 campaign.
The notable players that season were:
Clinton N’Jie, Harry Kane, Son Heung-Min, Tom Carroll, Dele Alli, Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen, Mousa Dembele, Lewis Holtby, Paulinho, Nabil Bentaleb, Ryan Mason, Harry Winks, Eric Dier, Ben Davies, Jan Vertonghen, Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker, Hugo Lloris, Michael Vorm
