My point is - I want a Left Back (and all and any player that plays for Spurs) to WANT to be there and to try his hardest to help Spurs win. BAE is not that in the slightest. Yes, I agree, when (and it is not that often) he decides he wants to play (and usually that is when the opposition don't have a right winger playing) he is pretty good, especially going forward - BUT - it is not often enough for me. And anyway, for the odd match when he has no one to mark and he goes forward there are 2 or 3 other games where he is not that good. I have lost count of the times I have seen him half raise a lazy leg to block a shot or be 2 yards behind an attacker in the box when a cross comes in and we let a goal in.
No, players like Dawson might not be as good going forward or as skilful, but give me players like him over players like BAE every time.
Not sure who we should get in his place but there are plenty of players out there willing to give a lot more to our team than BAE.
