With so much at stake in Sunday’s game against Manchester City, the players have once again turned to the fans and asked them to be the twelfth man when the sides take to the field. Club captain Michael Dawson has been talking to the club’s official website and he spoke of the special atmosphere that supporters generate at White Hart Lane.

“There is no better place than White Hart Lane when it’s rocking and that support can make such a difference,” Daws said.

“When the players are performing and the fans are behind us, they are our 12th man, just like they were recently against Arsenal. We’d all love a repeat of that.”

Michael also feels that City are in dangerous form ahead of the vital fixture.

“There are a lot of points to play for and we have to be positive,” he added. “City have picked up their form, had great result against United and then in the FA Cup semi-final.

“They will be full of confidence and have some great players but coming to the Lane, the place will be rocking and hopefully we’ll perform well and get the right result.”




  1. I agree with Dawson’s sentiments – I’ll be at the Lane on Sunday and am hoping that we can create a loud, intimidating atmosphere for the Man City players. If we approach it like a North London Derby then I’m sure it will drive us on that extra 5%. Even a draw wouldn’t be awful but a defeat would be certainly mean curtains for CL I think, as Chelsea and Arsenal are grinding out the results consistently now….
