It really does look like they don't fancy Dawson at Wednesday doesn't it? Why sign Stockdale on L1 wages when you're already spaffing £10k a week on a keeper clearly good enough for the level?

What more does Dawson have to do to get into the Wednesday squad. I love what Cam did at our club last year but it's a long old journey coming down from Sheffield so wouldn't be surprised if he chose something more close to home in the near future. He's done a couple of seasons now in Devon, hopefully I'm wrong and he loves it here and wants to come to us.

There's nothing to suggest that Dawson isn't getting into the Wednesday squad. How do you know that they don't see him as their No 1 for this coming season?

I have to say that I'd assumed when Wednesday signed Stockdale I'd assumed it was as a back up rather than as a first choice.

He's 36, originally from Yorkshire, and has lots of interests outside of the game (that sounds like a line from a would-be Miss World).

If you want a chuckle have a look at his personal website.

Perhaps he's not quite as good as many on here seem to think he is? Dawson played two distinctly varying levels of GK competancy last season. After his arrival, and during his first period before he got injured, I thought - How did we manage to get hold of a keeper of that class! Quite an unbelievable acquision for a basement league club. IMHO though, he was never the same when he returned, even though he was our keeper when we finally won promotion. I can see why Wednesday cant make up their minds about him and his ability. They do need to stop f*cking him around though, and let him find a club where he can finally settle down. I dont think his long term future lies in the Championship.
