Dawson's derby blues

Posted on 27 April 2005  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Only one thing was missing from Michael Dawson's first taste of the north London derby.

"I enjoyed it but I would have enjoyed it a whole lot more if we'd have come away with something," sighed Michael at Spurs Lodge on Tuesday.

The night before and the defender again impressed as we suffered a 1-0 loss to our old rivals in the Barclays Premiership.

"We have to hold our hands up and say they played well but it's frustrating," reflected Michael.

"They had a great chance after one minute, they didn't take it and that gave us a chance. We built on that in the first 20 minutes, it was good and we played well. They didn't really have a major chance until the goal. They had more in the second half but we were pushing on.

"It was a great game to be involved in but as I said, I would have preferred it if we'd nicked a point."

After being sidelined for a couple of months with a shin injury on joining us in January, it's been quite a start for Michael's Spurs career - Liverpool away, West Brom home and now Arsenal away.

"Throw United in there and that would have been the lot!" he smiled. "It's been a good start, great games and if we'd have picked something up at Arsenal it would have been a dream start having taken a point at Liverpool. It wasn't to be but I can't complain at the moment."
