Michael Dawson: Confident that Tottenham can challenge for trophies

Michael Dawson is confident that Tottenham have the quality to win a trophy this season and believes it is only a matter of time before the goals begin to flow.

Spurs have made a solid start to their Premier League campaign and collected 20 points from their first 11 games, but last weekend's 1-0 loss at home to Newcastle United left them seventh in the table.

Dawson remains upbeat about Tottenham's chances of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League and insists they are even capable of challenging for the title.

"Our expectations are high," he told the Daily Star Sunday. "There's no hiding at the start of the season. Our aim was to be in the top four. That hasn't changed.

"But we aim high and we believe that we have got the squad - and the quality in the dressing room - to go all the way."

Dawson has been part of a defence which has conceded just six league goals so far this season, and he believes that is a great foundation to build on.

The centre-back is convinced that Spurs' attacking players will soon start to click into gear, having scored just nine times to date, and drive the club on to a successful season.

He said: "It's great keeping clean sheets and I take great pride in that. As a team, we have worked very hard at that aspect.

"Yes, we would have liked to have scored a few more goals and turned a few more of the draws into wins.

"But we have had a great start. Our best in the Premier League. We have to take a lot of positives from that. And those goals will come.

"As the manager says, the aim is to win a trophy this season and we are going for every competition.

"But everyone wants to play every game and the squad we now have means that any team the manager chooses can do well in the Premier League."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

H

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.
