Dawson's Diary

Friday, March 2

There’s no hiding that’s it’s been a hard week after what happened at Arsenal.

It was a strange game. After going 2-0 up and feeling in control - although they were playing well, to be fair, and had chances - you couldn’t see anything else but us winning.

The header to bring them back into it at 2-1 gave them a massive lift. It gave the fans a lift as well. To then concede the second straight away and go in at 2-2 was a huge blow.

We tried to rally around at half-time, tried to get the lads back on track because Arsenal had the momentum. But they came out and played really well.

To concede five was really hard to take.

We’ve another huge game on Sunday against United.

We were beaten 5-1 by City and managed to bounce back. Okay, that game wasn’t against our local rivals, but it hurt all the same.

We’ve had a fantastic season and we can’t let one game change that mentality.

The lads always want to put on a performance after losing any game, but we realise losing to Arsenal hurts all the more.

All I’ll say is that we’ll be determined to put it right against United on Sunday.

In the photograph at the top of the page you'll see me with the special-edition shirt that the team will wear on Sunday as we celebrate five years of the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation.

Everyone can be proud of the work the Club does in the community.

One player a week goes out to a Foundation project and when you go to a school or a community centre and see the smiles on kids' faces, that's something special.

If we can help in any way by going out and being in the community, then that's fantastic. We're all right behind it.

Until next time!
