Teddy's spot-on

Posted on 28 September 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 currently top of the spots - according to statistic kings Opta Index. <P>Our super skipper boasts a 100 per cent record from Premiership&nbsp&#59;penalties since returning to the Lane at the start of last season. <P><STRONG><EM>Here are Opta's findings on the 12-yard test...&nbsp&#59;</EM></STRONG> <P>Michael Owen and Alan Smith are just two of the host of high-profile names that have hit the headlines recently because of their lack of success from the penalty spot. <P>It is interesting to note, however, that so far this term a greater percentage of penalties have been scored in the 2002-03 campaign than last season. <DIV align=center>&nbsp&#59;</DIV><DIV align=center><TABLE style="WIDTH: 308pt&#59;

who stand a good chance of becoming England&rsquo&#59;s first-choice strike pairing over the next few years &mdash&#59; continue to fluff their finishes from 12 yards out, they could do worse than examine the technique of Spurs&rsquo&#59; Teddy Sheringham. <P>In the 2001-02 season the 36-year-old took three penalties and was successful on each occasion, making him the Premiership&rsquo&#59;s most consistent Englishman from the spot. <DIV align=center><IMG src="/media/images/decorative/photos/hammers5.jpg" width=330 DESIGNTIMEURL="/photos/hamemrs5.jpg"></DIV><P>Of the 22 penalties taken this term, 13 have been taken by Englishmen and 69% of these have been successful.
