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 ...

Watford

0-1: Saturday, 27th January

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

Portsmouth

1-2: Tuesday, 26th December

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

Fulham

0-0: Saturday, 23rd December

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

Manchester United

1-0: Sunday, 17th December

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

Everton

0-2: Sunday, 3rd December

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

Everton

0-2: Sunday, 3rd December

(Replaced Bowyer, 69) Should have scored.

Sheffield United

1-0: Saturday, 25th November

(Replaced Tevez, 66) Some good touches and nearly set up Harewood.

(Replaced Tevez, 66) Some good touches and nearly set up Harewood.

Chelsea

0-1: Saturday, 18th November

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

Chelsea

0-1: Saturday, 18th November

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

Chelsea

0-1: Saturday, 18th November

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

Chelsea

0-1: Saturday, 18th November

(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.

Arsenal

1-0: Monday, 6th November

(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.

Arsenal

1-0: Monday, 6th November

(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.

Blackburn Rovers

2-1: Sunday, 29th October

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.

Chesterfield

1-2: Tuesday, 24th October

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

Chesterfield

1-2: Tuesday, 24th October

(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.

Tottenham Hotspur

0-1: Sunday, 22nd October

Did not play.

Tottenham Hotspur

0-1: Sunday, 22nd October

Portsmouth

0-2: Sunday, 15th October

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.

Portsmouth

0-2: Sunday, 15th October

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

Reading

0-1: Sunday, 1st October

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

Reading

0-1: Sunday, 1st October

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

Liverpool

1-2: Saturday, 26th August

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

Liverpool

1-2: Saturday, 26th August

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

Watford

1-1: Tuesday, 22nd August

(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.

Watford

1-1: Tuesday, 22nd August

(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.

Charlton Athletic

3-1: Saturday, 19th August

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

Charlton Athletic

3-1: Saturday, 19th August

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

Charlton Athletic

3-1: Saturday, 19th August

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

Olympiakos

1-1: Saturday, 12th August

(Replaced Ashton, 64) The old master is back for another season at the age of 142 (or something). May still yet have a part to play.

Liverpool

3-3: Saturday, 13th May

(Replaced Etherington, 85) No further comments.

Liverpool

3-3: Saturday, 13th May

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

Tottenham Hotspur

2-1: Sunday, 7th May

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

Liverpool

1-2: Wednesday, 26th April

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

Middlesbrough

1-0: Sunday, 23rd April

Did not play.

Middlesbrough

Manchester City

1-0: Saturday, 15th April

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

Manchester City

1-0: Saturday, 15th April

(Replaced Ashton, 82) Not enough time to register.

1-0: Saturday, 15th April

(Replaced Ashton, 82) Not enough time to register.

Chelsea

1-4: Sunday, 9th April

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

Chelsea

1-4: Sunday, 9th April

(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.

Charlton Athletic

0-0: Sunday, 2nd April

(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!

Manchester United

0-1: Wednesday, 29th March

(Replaced Ashton, 80) Comments to follow.

Wigan Athletic

2-1: Saturday, 25th March

(Replaced Ashton, 81) Comments to follow.

Manchester City

2-1: Monday, 20th March

Did not play.

Portsmouth

2-4: Saturday, 18th March

Bolton Wanderers

2-1: Wednesday, 15th March

(Replaced Ashton, 105) A calm resonated throughout the team when he joined in.

Bolton Wanderers

2-1: Wednesday, 15th March

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

Bolton Wanderers

1-4: Saturday, 11th March

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.

Everton

2-2: Saturday, 4th March

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

Everton

2-2: Saturday, 4th March

(Replaced Ashton, 84) Touched the ball once.

Bolton Wanderers

0-0: Saturday, 18th February

(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.

Birmingham City

3-0: Monday, 13th February

Did not play.

Birmingham City

3-0: Monday, 13th February

Sunderland

2-0: Saturday, 4th February

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

3-2: Wednesday, 1st February

Did not play.

Blackburn Rovers

4-2: Saturday, 28th January

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.

2-1: Monday, 23rd January

Manchester United

1-2: Sunday, 27th November

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

Tottenham Hotspur

1-1: Sunday, 20th November

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.

West Bromwich Albion

1-0: Saturday, 5th November

Well taken goal that, as ever, owed as much to Young Edwardís speed of thought rather than his, er, legendary pace over the ground.

Liverpool

0-2: Monday, 31st October

(Replaced Etherington, 67) The former Manchester United man was roundly booed by the home fans upon entering the fray. He was barely noticed thereafter.

Bolton Wanderers

0-1: Wednesday, 26th October

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

Middlesbrough

2-1: Sunday, 23rd October

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

Middlesbrough

2-1: Sunday, 23rd October

(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.

Manchester City

1-2: Sunday, 16th October

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.

Manchester City

1-2: Sunday, 16th October

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

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 1st October

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.

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 1st October

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.

Sunderland

1-1: Saturday, 1st October

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.

Arsenal

0-0: Saturday, 24th September

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.

Arsenal

0-0: Saturday, 24th September

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.

Arsenal

0-0: Saturday, 24th September

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.

Fulham

2-1: Saturday, 17th September

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

Fulham

2-1: Saturday, 17th September

(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.

Aston Villa

4-0: Monday, 12th September

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!

Bolton Wanderers

1-2: Saturday, 27th August

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

Newcastle United

0-0: Saturday, 20th August

Was doing well in the deeper role until injury curtailed his afternoon.

Newcastle United

0-0: Saturday, 20th August

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.

Blackburn Rovers

3-1: Saturday, 13th August

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.
