Michael Dawson: Ignoring transfer speclulation linking him with QPR

It has been suggested Redknapp is lining up a raid on his old club Tottenham to bring Dawson to Loftus Road to shore up the Premier League basement boys' defence.

Dawson, who made his first Premier League start of the season in Sunday's win over West Ham, is ignoring speculation over his future insisting that he is fully focused on Tottenham's cause.

"I'm at Tottenham. I'm playing my football and I played today," Dawson told London 24. "I love playing football and I want to be playing. There's no hiding that and it's hard when you're not.

"Every player wants to play, not just me, and of course it's frustrating. But I'm someone who keeps my head down, works hard and when you're called upon you've got to go out there and perform - and I thought all 11 players performed well.

"It's a great feeling and great to get three points because these fans went through a hard week last week, losing the way we did against Arsenal, and it hurt the boys.

"We're back to winning ways in the Premier League, which we needed to do because we haven't been having the best of runs in recent weeks."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
