Teddy ready for showdown

Posted on 13 December 2002  - 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 has told his team-mates to go out and show the fans what they're made of against Arsenal on Sunday.

Skipper Teddy believes we have a point to prove after what he describes as a 'demoralising' defeat at Highbury last month.

Teddy declared: "We've a point to prove, most definitely.

"I think they are a very, very good side but we know it was made very difficult at Arsenal by going down to 10 men.

"You don't like to be beaten like that. It was very demoralising to lose 3-0 in that way.

"But when you play against side like that, lose a man and they are already a goal up, it can happen. It's something we want to turn around and here is a chance, a month later.

"This is our local derby, it's our home patch and we need to go out and enforce our own game on them, rather than wait for them enforce theirs on us.

"It's a game where we're playing at home and we need to go and show our supporters what we're made of, simple as that.

"It doesn't matter who we're playing but as it happens, we're playing Arsenal.

"They are riding high at the moment but when you are playing with confidence at home you want to take on anyone."
