Michael Dawson reflects on his rollercoaster week in Saturday's official matchday programme for the big one against Chelsea.

The popular defender was on the floor, literally, after his slip on the playing surface at Wembley allowed Frederic Piquionne to open the scoring in Sunday's FA Cup semi-final defeat against Portsmouth.

However, the disappointment turned into jubilation after beating Arsenal on Wednesday night and Michael threw his shirt into the crowd, swept away with the emotion at the Lane.

'Daws' was in reflective mood as he discussed what will be his 200th appearance in a Spurs shirt if he features against Chelsea after joining us from Nottingham Forest in January, 2005.

"I've had a fantastic five-and-a-half years here," said Daws. "I've had a few hard days in that time but I've also had a lot of good days too and you have to remember those. Football is a funny game and that's why people love it. You have to cherish the highs because you know you are going to experience the lows as well.

"Sunday was the biggest low of the season by a long, long way, but then what a night it was on Wednesday. It was heart-breaking at Wembley and to be honest, it still is, but beating Arsenal certainly makes me feel better."
