Michael Dawson believes our final league position not being affected by cup football and European participation was a credit to the squad.

Michael Dawson believes our final league position not being affected by cup football and European participation was a credit to the squad.A second successive fifth place Premier League finish was recorded at the end of last season after a campaign that spanned 59 games as the boys competed on all fronts, reaching one semi-final and two quarter-finals - the last eight exits in the FA and UEFA Cups coming against the eventual winners.

The domestic form of some clubs in recent years has suffered as a result of taking on the European challenge, but next season we will once again hopefully be making good use of our passports when the team have another crack at securing UEFA Cup success.

"That is a credit to the squad," said the central defender. "Tottenham haven't been in Europe for two seasons running since the eighties when I was about two years old! We've done well and next year hopefully we can go one better and win something.

"That is our aim, we want to finish in Europe every season, but we want to win things. We are certainly capable of it."

A high Premier League finish did start looking unlikely when defeat at Sheffield United saw us fall some way behind the Euro-places, but the team went on to suffer just one more league loss in the remainder of the season.

"We got on a fantastic run of form. Sheffield United was a big disappointment, but everyone stuck together, everyone believed and we can now look back on what was a good season."
