Michael Dawson is convinced that we have the quality to aim for more than a top four finish as the Premier League marathon gets underway.
Captain Dawson knows that the campaign ahead will be a tough one as the top teams improve, new players settle in and Michael’s own infectious optimism is mirrored at clubs up and down the country.
Michael discusses his ambitions with Spurs and England in the current issue of Hotspur magazine. And he reports that the spirit at White Hart Lane is high.
“The mood is great,” he tells the September issue. “We’ve been anticipating the new season just as much as we always do so we’re glad to get going.”
And Dawson, who shares a unique rapport with Spurs fans, admits that he just loves life at the Lane.
“I have been here for six and a half years now and they have been fantastic,” he smiles. “The fans have been brilliant to me and it makes a big difference when you’ve got that relationship.”
Read the full interview in Hotspur where another Spurs centre-half – our Double man Maurice Norman – answers questions from supporters and is quick to praise Daws. He also talks about he opponents who impressed him most and why he was nicknamed Monty and Swede!
He also recalls that, just before he suffered the broken leg that ended his career, England manager Alf Ramsey had told him that he would be in his 1966 World Cup squad.
Other interviews include Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon, Ledley King and Jake Livermore.
And, as ever, the September issue is packed with nostalgia with Pat Jennings, Steve Archibald, Justin Edinburgh, Harry Evans, Danny Blanchflower, Tommy Harmer and Stuart Nethercott all in there.
In his regular and exclusive column, Ossie Ardiles selects the players he expects to shine this season while DJ Russ Williams tells us why he loves Spurs.
