With a trophy-laden past and the signings of some sensational players, Tottenham's managers over the years can each have a claim to being the greatest. But Sky Sports wants to narrow it down to the best of the bunch and we want your vote. Is Keith Burkinshaw, Bill Nicholson or Arthur Rowe your favourite? Have your say at the bottom of this article or via our poll and we will announce the winner on 12th August.
Keith Burkinshaw (1976-1984)
The Yorkshireman spent eight years in charge at White Hart Lane, winning two FA Cups and the UEFA Cup during his reign. Despite relegation in his first season as manager, Tottenham bounced straight back and Burkinshaw brought in Argentina stars Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa to North London in 1978. Alongside Glenn Hoddle, the pair helped Burkinshaw's team to consecutive FA Cup wins in 1981 and 1982 with the UEFA Cup triumph marking his final game in the job.
Bill Nicholson (1958-1974)
Having taken over in 1958, Nicholson became the first manager of the 20th Century to lead his side to a league and FA Cup Double, achieving the feat in 1961. He helped Spurs to another FA Cup triumph in 1962 before guiding them to the 1963 European Cup Winners' Cup - becoming the first British side to win a European trophy. A third FA Cup arrived in 1967 before two League Cups and a UEFA Cup win in the early 1970s before Nicholson retired in 1974.
Arthur Rowe (1949-1955)
Rowe led Tottenham in the post-war years between 1949 and 1955. A former Spurs player, he won promotion in his first season as manager and subsequently led Tottenham to the First Division championship the following year, becoming the first manager since the war to win back-to-back titles. Illness forced him to resign in 1955.
