While pointing out that it is early days and that the performance against Southampton was not the most convincing, Teddy is also aware of the old maxim - points win prizes.
"It's nice to see us at the top of the table, isn't it?," said Teddy post match.
"Beautiful, up there with ten points and three points clear of our next challengers - lovely!
"Very difficult game, we set off at a good pace and knew we had to attack again and there are no complaints with that. We got a goal up but, full credit to them, they got back into the game and made it difficult for us.
"We started well again in the second half and then, all of a sudden, they seemed to take over and it was as if we'd given it our best shot.
"Again we came back after that and I think we had 15 mintues that we were really pushing to try and win the game. We won the penalty with our perseverance late on."
It was a good few minutes after the award that Teddy actually got to take the spot-kick, a pressure that can get to some players. Teddy's solution was to ignore everything else going on around him.
"I was trying to keep away from everybody else. All the lads said 'why were you walking round and round and round - waiting for a baby to be born or something!'
"I was trying to keep my composure and thoughts to myself rather than listening to everybody else. That was the only way I knew how to do it."
Teddy Sheringham could not hide his pleasure at Spurs being top of the pile on Saturday, describing the league table as 'beautiful'.
