    ” He is, to this day, a favourite at The New Den.” ???

    Obviously you haven’t been to Millwall lately!! Teddy Sheringham burnt his bridges when he declared himself to be a lifelong h*mmers fan, backed with a photo of him in THE SUN wearing a hideous claret and blue shirt as a child! A crime in most Millwall supporter’s eyes that would be on a par with the pope declaring himself to be a lifelong closet protestsnat!

    So ‘ popular’ is he down at Millwall these days, that he was suspiciously injured everytime they were due to play at Millwall when both teams were in the Championship!!

    Lesson to be learnt? Research your facts!!

    I was reading from a fulsome tribute on a Millwall fansite – there was no date on it, but presumably written before he signed for West Ham. I did think that it was a bit odd, to honest. Still, never mind.

    my favourite Teddy Sheringham story:

    He had just been signed by Forest, and there he was, meeting Brian Clough for the first time. “Hello Edward” said Clough. “Hello gaffer. I prefer to be called Teddy”

    “Right you are, Edward.”
