10. Michael Dawson
Tottenham Hotspur Michael Dawson embodies the kind of commitment, desire and will-to-win that Spurs boss Tim Sherwood demands, but has been well short of his very best this season.
Dawson has got no favours from two Tottenham managers committed to playing a high defensive line, leaving the England international consistently exposed during humiliating thrashings against the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
The 30-year-old has two years left on his contract at White Hart Lane, and while a concerted recruitment drive last summer has spectacularly failed to deliver Champions League football you have to think defensive reinforcements will be a priority under a new boss for next term.
