New Tottenham Hotspur right-back Emerson Royal has a lot of work to do to win over Michael Dawson who has been unimpressed with his performances for the North London club since they paid £25m to sign from Catalan giants Barcelona at the start of the season. North London rivals Arsenal were one of the clubs in the race to sign Emerson before Spurs reached an agreement to sign the Brazilian international last summer.
Ex-Spurs and Hull City central defender Michael Dawson was on Sky Sports last week Saturday and he talked about the former Real Betis man. According to him, Emerson Royal has been a disappointment till date. The criticism from Michael Dawson came on the back of his errors during the home defeat to Southampton in the Premier League last week. Emerson was faulted for the final two Southampton goals during the game which ended in a 3-2 defeat for his team.
Ex-Premier League defender Michael Dawson has picked the best player in the English Championship this season. In a chat with the Daily Express, Michael Dawson went for Blackburn Rovers striker Ben Bereton-Diaz who has been the subject of real interest from several Premier League teams ahead of the resumption of the winter transfer window in the next two weeks.
Chilean international player Bereton-Diaz has been attracting the interest of Premier League clubs such as Brighton & Hove Albion, Leeds United amongst others.
Michael Dawson knew that England defender Harry Maguire was destined for greatness when they were Hull City teammates. Michael Dawson talked about Maguire and his impressive performances with the Three Lions at Euro 2020 in a chat with TalkSports.
Ex-Tottenham Hotspur and Nottingham Forestcentre back Michael Dawson revealed that he knew that Manchester United defender Maguire would be one of the elite players in world football. Michael Dawson disclosed how he joined The Tigers at the same time with Three Lions defender Maguire many years back. Dawson signed for Hull City from Nottingham Forest, while Maguire signed for Hull City from Sheffield United.
Former Tottenham Hotspur and Hull City defender Michael Dawson believes that Spurs chairman Daniel Levy deserves praise for trying to get experienced coach Antonio Conte to become the new permanent manager at the club.
Tottenham Hotspur are without a manager after Levy sacked Jose Mourinho in April and appointed former player Ryan Mason to take the team until the end of the just concluded season. Tottenham Hotspur started well under Mourinhoin the opening weeks of the season before things fell apart for him around the winter. He was sacked just before the Carabao Cup final encounter with eventual winners Manchester City.
Ex-Tottenham Hotspur defender Michael Dawson has told manager Jose Mourinho how he can help out young central defender Joe Rodon.
Michael Dawson talked about his former club while he was on BBC Radio 5 Live. According to him,Mourinho needs to find a senior partner for Rodon to help him settle into the Premier League. Rodon signed for Spurs last summer in a big money deal from Welsh club Swansea City. Spurs paid £11m to secure his transfer from the English Championship outfit at the start of the season.
Former Tottenham captain Michael Dawson has backed Real Madrid loanee, Gareth Bale, to put his injury troubles behind him and come up clutch at Tottenham. Dawson and Bake both played for Spurs before the Welsh winger was snapped up by Real Madrid back in the 2013 summer transfer window for a then-world-record fee.
Bale became a frustrated figure at Real Madrid after falling out of favor with the Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane and was subsequently frozen out of the first team. After some months of sitting out games both in the league and Champions League fixtures, Bale finally found an escape route when his former club came knocking on Madrid’s door to take back their former star on loan.
Michael Dawson is a player whose career would be seen as what could have been if not for injuries. The Nottingham Forest defender is one of the players that have been forgotten on recent years despite his brilliant stint in the Premier League.
Just under a decade ago in 2010 the then Tottenham defender was voted the club’s player of the season for his excellent performances. During that period Dawson was considered one of the best defenders in the league.
Nottingham Forest were largely underwhelming against Norwich City as the effect of losing Michael Dawson to injury was laid bare for us to see. The defender has been a big miss for his club as he continues his spell on the sidelines.
Forest should have seen off the challenge of Norwich City with Dawson in that team. The defender is known to be a leader who marshals the defense pretty well and indeed the whole team.
Michael Dawson has taken a reverse form where it all started on a mission to conclude what he begins with the Nottingham Forest. It is thirteen-and-a-half years when Dawson left the club. He started his football journey with the club watching from the terraces the player while he was the teenage trainee. And now a wiser and a more experienced Dawson has come back to the team with the goal of adding one achievement to his already impressive CV.
He became the part of different club and after the flood of cash and fascinating overseas signings, he finds himself being talked up in the middle of the favorites for promotion. Dawson believes he can handle the team when it is under pressure. When asked about his return to the team, he “For me it is a full circle. Coming back in the team is like happiness which is eternal.”
Michael Dawson has asked the Nottingham Forest side to improve ahead of the new season. He says they have enough time to further get their acts together in the pre-season. Nottingham Forest played a 2-2 draw with Oldham Athletic in their recent pre-season fixture, and it seems to have left Dawson frustrated.
The defender said the team did not reach their usual height in the game played at Boundary Park. The Reds dominated the game from early on but they were not sharp to take advantages of all their opportunities. They scored first but started to relax while their opponents grew stronger.
