Andy Cole: I Could Not Stand Teddy

Andy Cole: I Could Not Stand Teddy

It was never exactly a secret that Teddy Sheringham and Andy Cole shared a mutual dislike. There was a lot of speculation about where this animosity comes from but it's the first time that one of them actually spoke out on their feud.

In Glory, Glory, a book written by lifelong fan Andy Mitten about United in the 1990s, Cole said of Sheringham: "Our problems started when I made my England debut.

"I replaced Teddy. I was making my debut. Maybe I was naive, but I think he should have wished me all the best.

"I was nervous, as anyone would be.

"Instead, he walked straight past me and blanked me. It's not like I told Terry Venables to take Teddy off.

"So I was devastated when Teddy Sheringham signed for United because I couldn't stand him.

"We played a friendly in Milan in 1997, just after he'd signed. He said something on the pitch. I didn't like it. 'I'm only trying to help you,' he said. 'I don't need your help,' I replied."


Whoa. Is that all? It's somewhat difficult to believe that - to be honest, spoilt kids act this way. These 'insults' are far from being unforgivable so it's a tad strange they could never settle their differences.

Now Andy, we'd quite like to hear about how you got on with Eric Cantona...

That's still logarithmically larger than your average rag fan NeRD.

How typical - Cole has thrown his Teddy out of the pram! But in all seriousness these pair are yesterdays news. And ForeverUnited - you could do, but your comments would get lost in amongst those of all of our serious posters, unlike sticking out on a barren wasteland like this site!

ForeverUnited - how about you actually put some time and effort into posting on the threads here at VMU? Or is that way too difficult? Yeah, that's what I thought...
