Where do you even begin with Tottenham? So much has happened (or not happened) over the summer that last season feels more like two seasons ago.
Then again, perhaps that's a good thing for Spurs fans, as they saw their side record their lowest Premier League finish since 2009, winding up in 7th and ending the campaign manager-less after the deeply unpopular Jose Mourinho was sacked.
After a search for Mourinho's successor descended almost into the realms of parody at times - as candidate after candidate fell by the wayside - former Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo took over the reins at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
That's not been the biggest story on that side of North London this summer, though - oh no. That would be the speculation - and outright drama - surrounding the future of one Harry Kane.
The Golden Boot winner and Spurs' talisman told the club towards the end of last season that he wanted to leave - and, after helping England to the Euro 2020 final, he failed to report for his first day back at training.
Kane believed that he has a gentleman's agreement with chairman Daniel Levy to allow him to leave this summer - but how much does that actually mean? Not a lot, it would appear.
Well, Kane is back and looking for a second successive Golden Boot. It must feel like a new signing...
In terms of incomings, it's been a quiet one for Spurs ahead of what feels like a season of transition. Winger Bryan Gil ( / 1960s Ringo Star / Howard Wolowitz from The Big Bang Theory) is the marquee signing, if you like, arriving from Sevilla in a deal which saw Erik Lamela heading the other way, while goalkeeper Pierluigi Gollini and centre-half Cristian Romero have both signed from Atalanta.
Goalkeepers: Hugo Lloris, Pierluigi Gollini
Defenders: Matt Doherty, Sergio Reguilon, Davinson Sanchez, Joe Rodon, Serge Aurier, Japhet Tanganga, Ben Davies, Cristian Romero, Emerson Royal
Midfielders: Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Harry Winks, Eric Dier, Moussa Sissoko, Giovani Lo Celso, Dele Alli, Tanguy Ndombele, Ryan Sessegnon, Oliver Skipp
Forwards: Son Heung-Min, Harry Kane, Steven Bergwijn, Lucas Moura, Jack Clarke, Bryan Gil
