Teddy: We'll be ready

Posted on 8 March 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 is in no doubt that we will banish Wednesday night's defeat at Manchester United and bounce back for our massive FA Cup clash against Chelsea on Sunday.

Teddy's return to Old Trafford was one to forget as Mauricio Taricco's controversial sending off and the subsequent penalty to make it 2-0 left us with a mountain to climb. United eventually ran out 4-0 winners.

But skipper Teddy insisted the lads would only be looking forward, not back, as the quarter-final cracker at the Lane quickly approaches.

"We'll be alright for Sunday," he declared. "It's a massive game for us. We're disappointed now but we'll get over it on Thursday and by Friday we'll get buzzing into it.

"It's the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and if you need lifting for that then there's a problem."

Reflecting on Wednesday's defeat, Teddy agreed with manager Glenn Hoddle and strike partner Les Ferdinand's assessment of Tano's red card.

He said: "It was a shame about the result. It was a very difficult game and going down to 10 men late on in the first half didn't help.

"It was outside the area, he wasn't exactly the last men either, someone could have got back, so it wasn't really a sending off, wasn't a penalty and we lose a goal and a man. It was a big moment.

"I know 4-0 looks like it was all over but at that time we had a bit of play and you never know in football.

"What can you do? Just hope it doesn't happen on Sunday."
