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."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
