Bullied Michael Dawson forced to give fake Tottenham team-talks

Spurs defender’s presentation skills put to the test

Tottenham centre-back Michael Dawson has revealed he is often the butt of changing room jokes. The ex-Nottingham Forest man has been an easy target of fun-poking ever since he arrived at White Hart Lane.

He told Hotspur magazine: “The lads seem to think it’s funny to play tricks on me. I take it in good heart though – perhaps that’s why they do it! I remember one when we played Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup soon after I arrived at Spurs from there.

“The lads were having a meeting in the AV room at the training ground and decided to have a laugh and see if they could get me to do the team talk. So someone fetched me. At that point I’d not trained or played with the lads [due to injury] and they were all in there. They had the Forest team on the whiteboard in front of them, so I began.

“But after a couple of seconds they all started cheering! They’ve hammered me ever since!”

Turned into a figure of fun by a fake presentation on your former team. That’s the crazy world of Premier League training grounds, folks.

    Hey Mr billiospur,

    Don’t really know what you’re getting at.

    Is there anything in the post which suggests that we genuinely think Dawson is having his life made a misery?

    Well, it’s nice to see Dawson having a great sense of humour.

    Could you imagine what would happen if this happened to Ronaldo? He’s prolly cry or some shit like that.
