Now now, I appreciate your constructive comments, but I won't have that about Dawson. He was our superhero last season, practically single-handed defending (and defending well) for nearly 60 games. He's still only relatively recently cone back from injury, and is playing with a new CB partner. Admittedly he made a few concerning errors (i.e. for the goals), but a few pretty good blocks too. From the looks of things the dressing room's a mess and he's apparently not experienced enough to not let it affect his play. Wait for things to settle before judging him.
I apologise of MJ's behalf for those comments, it's things like that which concern me. Whether or not he may think it, he's always been the epitomy of courteous and respectful to other teams and players, I'm not sure what all this is about. It's not the first time he's made comments like that, the rumour mill has it that he's trying to get himself fired so he can leave the nightmare situation he's in now £4 million the richer. I wouldn't blame him if he was, but I'd be thoroughly disappointed and lose all the respect I currently have for him.
Give him a bit more time... I don't know how long I'll say this for, probably until the end of the season, but we'd be muppets to turn against him now.
Ok, I take back the comment I made about Dawson. He does, after all, appear to give 100% whenever I've seen him play, and you've probably seen him more often !
Yeah, I think you're right, now when the chips are really down and it's tough, more than ever Spurs fans should show solidarity and give vocal support to the manager. Often the real root of the problem is in the dressing room. I was so happy when we offloaded the injury prone prima donna Dyer to the Hammers. It was like a black cloud lifting from the club.
Oh yeah, good luck for tonight too, I'll be shouting for you lot !
