Teddy: Be brave

Posted on 4 April 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Teddy Sheringham says it's time for the lads to be 'brave' as we prepare to meet Birmingham City on Saturday.

The skipper insists the lads are determined to turn a disappointing March into a charge for the UEFA Cup.

"Birmingham will work very hard but we wouldn't expect different really," reasoned Teddy.

"Every game you look at is a tough one whether they opposition has good quality or if they are just workmanlike, it doesn't matter, they are all potentially tough and this will be the same.

"We need to be as brave as we can on the ball. We like to play with the ball, get it down and pass it about.

"It's not just as easy as that though. It can be windy and pitches can be bobbly this time of year and people can get frustrated as well, fans can get frustrated if things don't go right, especially in the current climate, but it's up to us to be brave as players, to get hold of the ball and show that we're confident in our own ability and that it will turn around. That's how we have to be on Saturday.

"It can all change with a win and we're by no means saying the season is over.

"We've let ourselves down recently but we're still in a position where we could make a charge and while we're in that position, we'll be giving it a go."
