    Apologies if this has been mentioned somewhere else, I've had a quick squizz and not seen it.

    According to the BBC, "Dawson has been told he will be Tottenham's third-choice centre-back this season but has been offered guaranteed first-team football by QPR".

    Somebody tell me this is media nonsense, yeah?

    I'm not necessarily saying that he's the no 1 CB without contest, he's been injured & blah blah blah, but surely it would be a terrible terrible manager who 1) EVER told a player they were 3rd choice - surely that would be demotivating and encourage the "top 2" to sit on their laurels - but, more importantly, 2) was stupid enough to be in post for what? Two months, and 1 competitive game? And think they know the team dynamics well enough to be able to make a decision about player pecking order for the entire season?

    I know AVB will want to put a firm stamp on the team, but the thought of Daws going (and to QPR! The very least I'd say he's worth is an Everton, or if he wanted to stay in London at least a link up with old Jolly) makes me feel a little uneasy...

    But it doesn't matter cos it's just the same media malarkey, yeah?
