Sheri: Something Special Can Happen
One-time Manchester United and England hero Teddy Sheringham has vowed to keep strutting his stuff for Colchester United in a bid to make "something special" happen at Layer Road.
The 41-year-old, an authentic legend within football, has said he believes Colchester have the make-up in the Essex squad in order to defy the critics and race swiftly up the table.
"We played some nice stuff out there. It was hard work at times and we knew it would be a grind - we're in the Championship and you have to compete.
"We had chances to score three or four and it was disappointing not to do that but it was fantastic to get the win," said Sheringham in the Colchester Evening Gazette today.
He affirmed a popular belief that Colchester ought to be performing better, adding: "We have the players to do something special at Colchester this season and it's all about turning the losses into draws and the draws into wins."
In another local supplement, Sheringham is also quoted as saying how much he is enjoying the receptions he receives at each ground.
The EADT today printing him thus: "I'm getting some good receptions at each ground, like at Wolves and again today. I don't know why, but it was a lovely moment when they clapped me off the pitch."
