Teddy's pride

Posted on 28 August 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 was a proud captain after the battling win at the Valley and outlined the team's determination to avoid a repeat of last season's visit.

Charlton put Spurs on the back foot right from the off last time around and stormed into a two-goal lead before emerging 3-1 winners and Teddy could not hide his pleasure at turning the tables.

"I'm delighted," said the skipper. "Last year we came here and we were 2-0 down in the first 20 minutes and the game was over.

"We knew tonight that it was going to be exactly the same sort of theme, they were going to try and turn us round, get the ball in behind us and work us from there.

"We tried to do the same to them and put the pressure on them, rather than them on us.

"We worked very hard - if we don't all get 9/10s in the papers we'll be very disappointed.

"There was a lot of very good performances out there and we are very pleased."

Teddy was at his imperious best on the night, pulling the strings with aplomb and providing the ammunition for Matthew Etherington's and Simon Davies' sorties down the flanks.

"I'm playing alongside great players and they're getting into positions so it makes it easy," reflected Ted, slipping into modest mode, before adding that it is nice to have a couple of young flyers out wide giving the team an added dimension.

"Yes it is. You've got to have a blend of everything when you're playing football and things certainly looked good tonight."
