It’s a major double boost for Spurs, Michael Dawson and Jermain Defoe are expected to be back in action for Tottenham next months after both being out since being injured on England duty early on in the season.

Michael Dawson was initially ruled out for between 6-8 weeks and that is roughly the time it has taken for him to recover from his ligament damage to his left knee  so far. Defoe however was not expected to play again before Christmas but the striker has said of his progress and is targeting a return in November against Arsenal.

While Defoe’s recovery period has gone better than expected Michael Dawson although expects to be back in training next months may not be available until nearer the end of the month or even December if his recovery doesn’t go to plan. Recovering from ligament damage is never straight forward and it is hard to judge exactly how long it can keep a player sidelined and we all saw Dawson’s injury for England and we knew straight away it was never going to be anything other than a lengthy lay off.

It will be a major boost for Harry to have both players back in action, Spurs have done well to maintain a top four push whilst struggling to cope with an injury crisis up front and at the back, Spurs have used more centre back partnering than anyone else this season, even Tom Huddlestone has had a go at it. So with both players still a while off a return there is light at the end of the tunnel.

  1. Great to hear. The sooner we can get Crouch and Gallas out of the team the better!!

  2. im glad to hear that defoe and dawson will soon be back both were on good form im so lookin forward to see defoe and van der vaart linking up i just hope harry will sell keane who hasnt been same since been back at club plus sell bentley,jenas,palacios,dos santos,gallas,corluka,and maybe sign vidic,robben,torres well we can all wish cant we it would be great to just put presure on the top 4 every season coysssssssssssssssss

  3. why do you two want to get rid of palacios and pav ?? these are good quality sqaud players and we wont get any better than this. You seem to forget we do need more than just a first 11. Totally agree with Keane and Bentley, these are high wage earners and need to go.
    As for who you two want to buy, you make it sound so easy. Get realistic lads.

  4. I’M GLAD & HAPPY TO HEAR THAT DEFOE & DAWSON COULD RETURN IN NOVEMBER ESPECIALLY DEFOE SETTING TO PLAY AGAINST ARSENAL & 2 FINAL CHAMPIONS LEAGUE MATCHES, SO I HOPE TO SEE DEFOE & DAWSON BACK IN THE PITCH SOON.

  5. I dont want to be Mr Negative, but I’ll believe it when I see it. Harry is the master of underestimating injury times and over-promising on player returns. Remember Modric last season? 4 weeks, we were told. 3 months later he hobbled back into action (though clearly wasnt fit until the tail end of the season. Lennon? 2 weeks out with a minor groin strain we were told last December. He was basically out for the rest of the season, and actually hasnt fully recovered even now. Kaboul was supposed to miss one match, he missed 4. Kingf supposedly in contention for the Everton match, still aint fit a week later. Corluka, again were were told a game or two, he hasnt featured for over a month. Its the same old story – Harry’s wishful thinking. Tomorrow is a write off anyway – no Hudd, Bale to be rested according to well founded rumours, run outs for Palacios, Sandro and Pav…sounds like we’re taking it as a practice match. Routine 2-0 defeat

  6. In advance, welcome back Defoe and Dawson!
    COYS!

  7. hahaha – the return of championship manager
    Good news about Defoe & Dawson

  8. Not expected back before christmas, what rubbish, get your facts right. Defoe was always expected back early in December and it has been reported for the last week that he is ahead of that schedule and hoping to be back in November.

    • My facts are right, you’ll see, Defoe will be back within 3 weeks although Dawson might take a little bit longer.
