Book Description

4 Nov 1999
Born in the year of England's 1966 World Cup triumph, Teddy Sheringham expects to make a significant impact in the tournament in France in June/July 1998. For seven years, from 1984 to 1991, Teddy played for unfashionable Millwall in south-east London, scoring over 100 goals under the watchful eye of his first great manager, George Graham. But it was his subsequent transfers to Nottingham Forest (and Brian Clough) and then to Tottenham Hotspur (under Terry Venables) that made him famous and propelled him into the England side. Teddy's move from Forest to Spurs in 1992 is even now the subject of an FA inquiry into the notorious 'bung' allegations surrounding the exchange. Now a star at Europe's most glamorous club, Manchester United, Teddy is playing for yet another great manager to have recognised his talents - Alex Ferguson. A linchpin of that side and for the international team managed by Glen Hoddle, Teddy Sheringham's own story is a tale of at least five great managers - and one great player.

Amazon Review

In an adulatory introduction to this book Terry Venables says that, "I thought about the nice things I could say about my friend Teddy Sheringham and the more I thought about it the more I realised that nice things were the only thing I had to say about him." Glowing, indeed, but in fact not that surprising. Teddy Sheringham has long been regarded as an "intelligent footballer", which usually means you don't run about very much, but in his case it indicates a rare willingness to work for the team even when that entails less glory for Teddy Sheringham. This is a priceless asset in football and this book reinforces his grown up reputation as Sheringham displays a shrewd awareness of life at the top of the football tree both on and of the field. We get the memories of working under Brian Clough, tactical disagreements with Alex Ferguson and Glenn Hoddle and his contractual disagreements with Alan Sugar. The incident in a Portuguese bar where he was photographed drinking and smoking in a night club at 6.30am when supposedly in pre-world cup purdah is explained away--he was "in a different time frame" apparently--and the disappointment of being replaced by Michael Owen half way through the World Cup is honestly presented. But most of all we get an unpretentious, professional job. Typical Sheringham really. --Nick Wroe

Review

a fascinating insight into the world of top-flight football. (BATH CHRONICLE)

Sherringham's recollections provide an often very funny insight into the lifestyle of the modern footballer and- most amusingly- the unenviable 'honour (of working under Brian Clough.')

TOTAL SPORT ('In an adulatory introduction to this book Terry Venables says that, "I thought about the nice things I could say about my friend Teddy Sheringham and the more I thought about it the more I realised that nice things were the only thing I had to say about)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good summary so far, needs updating. 6 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Good on the earlier years at Millwall, obviously all the author's own work and quite honest on some of the characters in the game (Alan Sugar, Brian Clough for example) but now in dire need of an update to cover recent events (this year's renaissance at Manchester Utd, the Sugar trial). Probably only for real fans.

Teddy Sheringham comes across as a player, personallity and role model for the ordinary man or soccer player to aspire to. His expieriences and views (sometimes contraversial) on soccer make this book a reasonably good read, however, the constant one liners spoil the flow slightly. Furthermore, Sheringham's vocabulary is hardly Jane Austin, typical of a Brittish soccer player. However, this book is worth the price and does the job, much like it's author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Needs an update 10 Oct 2011
Format:Paperback
I was very interested in reading this book being an avid Spurs fan however it appears teddy's memory is not as good as his touch. He states how in the early days Razor Ruddock went to Spurs for 50k? He went to Southampton from Millwall and then on to Spurs. Also he states that he doesn't want to be a player that ends up player lower league football to get a game but clearly after this book was released he went back to Spurs then West ham (championship) and then to Colchester.

So far from being an honest account of his footballing career it appears an attempt to cash in on his treble winning season with United. Also not many stories in the book that make you think you've had an insight. Unlike the Ian Rush Biography he doesn't really give any stories of the players he played with and mainly talks about himself and that song.

Maybe an updated book would of been more interesting but nothing in the book sticks out. He played with great players but nothing is really mentioned except Spurs brought some crap players and he hates Alan Sugar. It doesn't seem like he researched the book, just wrote what he remembered. In contrast to Ian rush or Robbie Savage book or even the Matt Le Tisser book I was completely underwhelmed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Really Nice Book 24 Mar 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is a really nice book and i dont think i,m just saying that because i am a Teddy fan. It is nice to know Teddy's view of his career so far and the ups and downs in it. It is also somewhat educational for a young growing footballer. I personally love the part where he assures worried fans like me that it isnt over yet, he has not given up. This is a good book Teddy I really enjoyed it. Keep on striving for the best and I wish you the best of luck for the future
