Sheri all but lets Sam cat out of bag

imageTeddy Sheringham appears to have come as close as it gets to letting cats out of bags without going the whole hog!

Discussing the reasons for taking his first step into management at Stevenage, he claimed the uncertainty over the 60 year old’s position had contributed to the decision.

He said: “The uncertainty has carried on for everyone at West Ham for the last four to six months. If Sam had asked me four months ago I probably would have stayed and seen where it had taken me.

“But longer it has gone on, the uncertainty has left things very open and this chance (at Stevenage) has come about and it felt right.”

Meanwhile, the Hammers No2 Neil McDonald is in talks with League One side Blackpool and Ian Hendon is a contender for the top job at fourth-tier Leyton Orient.

Sheringham added:  “I spoke to my family (about taking the Stevenage job) but professionally, it was just Sam. I told him I’d had an approach and as soon as I said it was from Stevenage he said ‘take it’.

“His endorsement was a big deciding factor.”

  1. I hope this is yet another good omen. I’d be inclined to think that BFS didn’t really want an attacking coach but sadly brought Sheri round to his way of thinking and by telling him to go for it suggests he wouldn’t want an attacking coach at his next poor club.
    Only three days until all the omens translate into confirmation of the good news we’ve all (apart from two strange characters) been waiting for.

  2. Aint just two strange creatures,lol,still plenty of others who say we should offer hippo a new two year contract because its ‘too risky’ to get rid of him.Bet these are the same people who look up & down a road 200 times before crossing it or go into a nuclear bunker when it is a friday the 13th.Pussies 😉

    • Haha the same as those people who were too scared to go near fire ,when was that? Oh yeah back in the time of dinosaurs

  3. Good luck teddy,now you can get your forwards to play like forwards,not ****ing long ball outlets or defensive midfielders from the 65th minute onwards 😉

  4. I would say it is Sam whose let the cat out of the bag. When someone can’t wait 24hours to find out his future, I would say he knows he doesn’t have one with us. Nevertheless I still wouldn’t put my hard earned money on the outcome of all this.

  5. I would,stick your months wage packet on him gone.Hes history 😉

  6. Never let us down canchaz, go on say it I LOVE BFS there is that not better,
    You earn money as well that’s a bonus,
    I would put every penny canchaz earns for the rest of his life on it,
    But the odds must be about 1/1000 at the moment

  7. Were being told a lot of ******** by certain people that know that we will believe them,A surprise is in store!.
