Too old, they said. Not fit enough, they argued. But how Teddy Sheringham proved them wrong in the 04/05 season when his goals were vital in West Ham's return to the Premiership.

Despite approaching the age of 40, Sheringham remains very much in contention for a starting spot in West Ham's Premiership XI. They broke the mould etc etc ...

0-1 v Watford (h) 27th January 2007
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Newton, 65) No real influence on the game but the die had been cast by the time he arrived.

(Replaced Harewood, 45) Lovely goal. Should have started.

0-0 v Fulham (a) 23rd December 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Zamora, 69) I can see the logic behind replacing Zamora with Teddy but it didnít really work today.

1-0 v Manchester United (h) 17th December 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Zamora, 58) Lovely nutmeg contribution for the goal and held the ball up well to relieve the pressure on midfield.

(Replaced Bowyer, 69) Absent aside from one good chance.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Bowyer, 81) One nice lay off in the dying moments, and thatís about it.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Bowyer, 81) A couple of nice lay-offs but otherwise nothing to write home about.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Bowyer, 81) Anonymous, barely had a touch.

0-1 v Chelsea (a) 18th November 2006
by Jacob Steinberg

(Replaced Bowyer, 81) The ball fell to him at the back post and I thought... maybe? But his touch let him down, and that was the only time he was really involved.

1-0 v Arsenal (h) 6th November 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Zamora, 62) A super cameo from the oldest player in the league. The little touches and glanced passes were first class, and his vision was excellent - summed up by the one two with Etherington that led to the winning goal.

1-0 v Arsenal (h) 6th November 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Zamora, 62) Every pass was accurate, he held the ball up well and brought other players into the game intelligently. Played a vital part in the goal.

2-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 29th October 2006
by East Stand Martin

The old warhorse banged home the goal to calm the nerves but failed to have much of an influence on the game as a whole.

1-2 v Chesterfield (a) 24th October 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Harewood, 51) Had time to change the game, but failed miserably.

1-2 v Chesterfield (a) 24th October 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Harewood, 51) Questions will be asked as to why Sheringham was used instead of Cole, who surely would have posed a greater threat on the night. Really shouldn't be playing these days.

0-2 v Portsmouth (a) 15th October 2006
by Gordon Thrower

Poor. Just about every pass or lay-off went astray. Got nothing out of Poll with whom he had a constant running argument. Booked when Johnson writhed in agony after a fairly innocent looking challenge.

0-2 v Portsmouth (a) 15th October 2006
by Nick Bull

Like Zamora. Starting the old man could well be a sign of an impulse reaction by Pardew.

0-1 v Reading (h) 1st October 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Tevez, 71) First appearance in over a month, but rather quiet.

0-1 v Reading (h) 1st October 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Tevez, 71) Some delightful touches from Teddy and his introduction certainly appeared to lift the team in the closing stages.

1-2 v Liverpool (a) 26th August 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Zamora, 83) Sat behind the Cole attempting to bolster the midfield for the finale.

1-2 v Liverpool (a) 26th August 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Zamora, 83) A clever free kick caused consternation though he didnít really have time to influence things.

1-1 v Watford (a) 22nd August 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Harewood, 66) Some good touches which made it a little easier to play football Ė itís much easier to have a passing game if you think that thereís a chance that the ball might not come straight back from the front. Link play was excellent.

1-1 v Watford (a) 22nd August 2006
by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Harewood, 66) Played an effective role in several late Hammers attacks, although found himself waiting for the ball for long periods such was Watford's dominance.

3-1 v Charlton Athletic (h) 19th August 2006
by Nick Bull

(Replaced Zamora, 82) Did not do that much, record breaking aside.

3-1 v Charlton Athletic (h) 19th August 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Zamora, 82) Became the oldest player etc etc. Gave the ball away a couple of times.

3-1 v Charlton Athletic (h) 19th August 2006

(Replaced Zamora, 82) Teddy became the oldest player to play in the Premiership today.

(Replaced Etherington, 85) Became the third oldest player to play in a Cup Final. The only Hammer to hold his nerve in the shootout.

2-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (h) 7th May 2006

A bit of a mare, though not as bad as some were making out.

Some great touches and a wonderful pass to set up Reo's goal.

1-0 v Manchester City (h) 15th April 2006

(Replaced Ashton, 82) Not really given enough time to make much of an impression.

1-4 v Chelsea (a) 9th April 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Benayoun, 72) Unlucky not to score. Might have been a better bet to start if we were set on playing one up.

1-4 v Chelsea (a) 9th April 2006
by Graeme Howlett

(Replaced Benayoun, 72) Came on for the now-regular cameo and was closest to notching a second Hammers goal when his shot was cleared off the line.

0-0 v Charlton Athletic (h) 2nd April 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Ashton, 45) Early on he was as guilty as everyone else of giving the ball away but he improved and his greater involvement in the link-up play was instrumental in our dominance of the second period. Wish heíd scored though!

(Replaced Ashton, 105) Rarely involed during his brief period on the field.

1-4 v Bolton Wanderers (a) 11th March 2006
by Graeme Howlett

Got his goal and didnít seem as off the pace as in some of his recent performances. Won a few headers when we were playing the long ball. Worked hard and a decent effort overall.

2-2 v Everton (h) 4th March 2006
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Ashton, 84) I canít remember him doing anything of note.

0-0 v Bolton Wanderers (a) 18th February 2006

(Replaced Ashton, 75) Rarely involved for the 15 or so minutes he was on. Didn't look 100% despite having recovered fully from the annual Christmas injury.

2-0 v Sunderland (h) 4th February 2006

(Replaced Zamora, 45) A couple of nice touches but rarely troubled the Sunderland defence.

Played a useful part in the teamís link play throughout the match. Lovely penalty though I may have to up the blood pressure prescription if heís going to do that too many times this season.

Despite having rested in midweek Teddy rarely got involved and looked every one of his 39 years at times.

1-1 v Tottenham Hotspur (a) 20th November 2005
by East Stand Martin

The shot that Robinson saved apart he didnít get any meaningful efforts in on goal though he did do a fair job defensively from time to time by coming deeper to break up the odd home attack.

by Paul Eastwood

Still some nice touches but cost us a lot of time/space through his lack of pace.

2-1 v Middlesbrough (h) 23rd October 2005
by Gordon Thrower

(Replaced Zamora, 65) Fine finish and his introduction gave a different look to the attack that Boro had difficulty in coming to terms with.

2-1 v Middlesbrough (h) 23rd October 2005
by Adam Leatherbarrow

(Replaced Zamora, 65) Only on for 25 minutes but made an immediate impact by grabbing a goal with his first touch. Was also involved in the second goal by adding pressure on the 'Boro keeper.

1-2 v Manchester City (a) 16th October 2005
by Gordon Thrower

Apart from one ball to feed Etherington in the first half his most notable contribution was to throw an Elton John-style tantrum on being substituted.

1-2 v Manchester City (a) 16th October 2005
by East Stand Martin

Not in the game at all, and will do well to see off the challenge of Bobby Zamora come next weekend.

1-1 v Sunderland (a) 1st October 2005
by Gordon Thrower

His one real contribution was to miss what by his standards was a sitter Ė though his first touch to set himself up was class.

1-1 v Sunderland (a) 1st October 2005
by Greg Mansell

Surprised to see Teddy start and could have very nearly scored having superbly brought down Repkaís cross field ball. Apart from that, the game largely passed Teddy by and seems more suited to the game when playing at Upton Park.

1-1 v Sunderland (a) 1st October 2005
by Graeme Howlett

Perhaps one game too many for the old legs? Teddy was very rarely involved today although he was guilty of spurning the Hammers best opportunity; a feat for which he was promptly rewarded by being subbed. Another who will play better.

0-0 v Arsenal (h) 24th September 2005
by East Stand Martin

A quiet day at the office for the team's elder statesman; having played for Spurs and Manchester United (prior to moving to a big club a year or so ago) one would perhaps have expected him to more effective today.

0-0 v Arsenal (h) 24th September 2005
by Greg Mansell

When the game kicked off at the pace it did, I worried for Sheringham and his 39-year-old legs. Had a free kick go a couple of yards wide, also saw a shot go past the post after a neat one-two with Etherington, and was booked after an altercation with Campbell. Not a bad day at the office but then not exactly a good one.

0-0 v Arsenal (h) 24th September 2005
by Gordon Thrower

Having had a nice rest young Edward came back in and was unlucky not to get his name on the scoresheet. As usual there was the odd occasion that had one yearning for a pair of younger legs but, on a day when hard work was required he didnít go missing.

(Replaced Benayoun, 74) Some excellent link up play in the time he was on.

2-1 v Fulham (a) 17th September 2005
by Graeme Howlett

(Replaced Benayoun, 74) Alan Pardew would no doubt have preferred to rest Sheringham for the entire day but had his hand forced slightly when Fulham pulled a goal back. Sheringham's introduction gave the Hammers a cool head in what could have been troubled times.

4-0 v Aston Villa (h) 12th September 2005
by Gordon Thrower

Although not the greatest of threats on goal his link-up play was a joy to behold. A whole 90 minutes as well Ė maybe AP feared another tantrum if young Edward was subbed!

1-2 v Bolton Wanderers (h) 27th August 2005
by East Stand Martin

The usual clever performance from young Edward who can look forward to a couple of weeks with his feet up.

Teddy was the glue that held the midfield and attack together - unfortunately replaced early on in the second half after suffering a knock. Doubtful for Saturday's clash with Bolton.

3-1 v Blackburn Rovers (h) 13th August 2005
by David P Lewis

The usual intelligent display from young Edward Ė especially in the second half when he seemed to be more on the same wavelength as his colleagues. Clever anticipation for the goal though the sulky nature of his departure was a tad unnecessary.

2004/05 Match Notes & Ratings

2-2 v Brighton & Hove Albion (a) 23rd April 2005
by Gordon Thrower

Involved in both goals, albeit indirectly so for the second, and set up Reo-Coker for a chance he ought to have put away. For all that he didnít quite seem at his best and it is to be hoped that the hamstring problem that caused his early retirement from the match is only a minor niggle.

1-0 v Stoke City (a) 19th April 2005
by East Stand Martin

Some nice lay-offs apart he was not much of an attacking threat.

1-1 v Millwall (h) 16th April 2005
by Gordon Thrower

Laid the ball off well when coming deep Ė notably in the build up to the goal. However he failed to threaten much as an attacking force.

1-1 v Millwall (h) 16th April 2005
by East Stand Martin

Teddy was showing his age today. At least, that's the only explanation I can come up with for a completely innefectual performance. Only had the odd chance to silence the barracking from the supporters of his former employers but when he did they were only half-heated efforts.

3-0 v Coventry City (h) 9th April 2005
by Gordon Thrower

39? A mere youngster! Should really know better at his age than to mess about with penalties like that though.

3-0 v Coventry City (h) 9th April 2005

Not one of Teddy's more influential performances but he'll be pleased to increase his goal count with the penalty.

2-1 v Wigan Athletic (a) 2nd April 2005
by East Stand Martin

Once again provided the goods, netting his 19th goal of the season. However despite this impressive return I cant help but feel a little cheated by all the praise he continues to recieve. Whilst I will concede he had a very good second-half, for me he seems to apply himself only when he decides too. And whilst much is made of his ability to link up play, it has been very sloppy and lacklustre throughout most of our matches. However whilst he continues to find the net he will continue to be our saviour and most valuable player according to the press!

The two goals were well taken and his speed of thought was always a constant problem for his markers.

2-2 v Leicester City (h) 18th March 2005
by East Stand Martin

Did his job, scoring twice - although he really should have had three, but instead delegated the penalty to Marlon Harewood. The only downside was that his first touch let him down at times.

by Gordon Thrower

Largely anonymous, though he must have been tearing his hair out when Zamora gained a free-kick early in the second half for being on the receiving end of an challenge the likes of which the ref had ignored for the first 45.

1-2 v Preston North End (h) 5th March 2005
by East Stand Martin

Looked totally off the pace. He should play as a super sub.

1-0 v Gillingham (a) 22nd February 2005

(Replaced Etherington, 45) Much better at holding the ball up. Unlucky with the free-kick that hit the bar.

5-0 v Plymouth Argyle (h) 20th February 2005
by Gordon Thrower

The first half was all about his link play Ė his lay-offs and passing were superb. Turned goalscorer in the second half though it should be remembered that it was also his marvellous backheel that led to the penalty.

5-0 v Plymouth Argyle (h) 20th February 2005

Classy as always, although his passing was a tad wayward at times.

Gets an extra point for the penalty. Was beaten in the air almost every time. Did not have the passing flair or the vision I have seen him bring to a game. Looked tired and not completely involved or interested.

3-2 v Nottingham Forest (h) 26th December 2004
by Graeme Howlett

A pretty mediocre performance despite adding another two to his goal tally. The first he almost contrived to belt over the bar despite being no more than four yards from goal, and the second - a clear header - looked like it came off his chest. But they all count, and Teddy's goals were the difference today.

Continues to rub the noses of those who, like me I admit, were concerned at our signing of another old forward whose better days were in the past. It's a real shame that three games a week is probably too punishing a schedule for him at the moment.

His introduction had a positive impact on the game. Some intellectual passing, the goal, and playing as more of a striker today with Harewood going out wide. This seemed a lot more effective, and combining the work winning aerial challenges, and the goal, he had a good game.

Not really at the races. After a decent start Teddy has looked tired in recent games; a spell on the bench my not be a bad idea.

1-1 v Ipswich Town (h) 18th September 2004
by Gordon Thrower

A strong first half that was spoilt only by his inexplicable failure from the spot. Less involved in the second half though he wouldn't have been my first candidate to be replaced. I can only hope that his substitution was for reasons of fatigue rather than injury.

Maybe the three games in seven days caught up on Teddy today, as he was far less effective overall than he has been of late. Obviously the penatly miss was a huge blow, and it will be for that - rather than some of his sublime touches - that he will be remembered today.

Another clever match from Teddy and, as his team-mates begin to get on the same wavelength, more of the intelligent layoffs are beginning to pay off.

by Gordon Thrower

I've probably said this before but sometimes his speed of thought can be too quick for his team mates. However the old head managed to take the sting out of the game towards the end and he certainly enjoyed his goal Ė even if there was a slight deflection on the way in.

Our Boudicia for the Premiership challenge. At flicks, making goals and scoring them, there is no finer player in this division at the moment. Please stay fit Teddy.

Quality again, his touches and link up play are amazing.

Showed some good form, but clever flick-on's don't really work if there are bodies in the way .

1-2 v Coventry City (a) 30th August 2004
by East Stand Martin

Wasn't as effective with his flick-on's due mainly to top defending by Davenport (who was awesome). Tap in for the goal but wasn't too effective overall; not one of his best games.

1-0 v Burnley (h) 28th August 2004
by East Stand Martin

I wasn't keen on this signing to be honest Ė not because of his past club associations but because I thought that it was another example of us bringing in a player who was past it. I was wrong. His intelligence stands out a mile in this division and he was again a class act all round in this match.

by East Stand Martin

(Replaced Rebrov, 76) One of the biggest cheers of the night came when he entered the fray. Teddy has already became a firm fans' favourite. Provided some good flicks in typical Teddy fashion and held the team together when Southend started to look a little threatening.

(Replaced Rebrov, 76) His calming influence seemed to take the sting out of the match just as it was threatening to become a little frantic.

3-2 v Crewe Alexandra (a) 21st August 2004
by Gordon Thrower

During the first half he was the focus of most of our attacking options and the finishes for his two goals were sublime. Not quite as involved in the second half but still got in a lot of hard work and could have completed his hat-trick late on.

by Nic Stoke

Well the old bugger has still got it, and in abundance. He sees and plays passes no one else would in our team; his two goals were quality finishes (especially the glanced header); his link up play with the midfield and his constant talking to players throughout the game clearly helped the cause.

Showed why Pardew signed him at the ripe age of 38. Organised, dropped deep, some quality passing/flicks and two good goals.

A class above for the second game running. How the fitness of his veteran will last, is another question.

1-0 v Reading (h) 10th August 2004
by Richard Osborne

As Jonathon Pearce once enthused after he scored a goal for England "Teddy, ever so steady, with a glass of sherry". In a class of his own. He didn't keep the ball for more than 0.25 seconds. The vast majority of his layoffs/passes found a C&B shirt. He went up for headers 5 minutes before the opposition and always won the ball. Simply stunning and the goal was just the icing on the cake.

by Gordon Thrower

I'll hold my hands up and say that I was far from convinced by this signing. However, he had a superb match tonight, setting up Harewood on several occasions. His intelligence and experience were something of a revelation and I'll be well happy if he can keep this sort of form going throughout the season.

Largely anonymous Iím afraid, although there were occasional glimpses of his intelligence in luring challenges in from the Leicester defence.

Hard to judge Teddy today as the service to him was poor. Had a good flashing header from the edge of the box and the follow up to Harewood's one-on-one. Made some clever passes in and around the box though which will, one hopes, create further chances in games to come.
