Having been the butt of countless jokes and jibes from this site and many others, 'Les Balon' Dawson has finally made it back oop North! "The mother-in-law came round last week. It was absolutely pouring down. So I opened the door and I saw her there and I said, 'Mother, don't just stand there in the rain. Go home.'
Dawson was possibly West Ham United's best bit of business this century, nicknamed the Relegator' he had been relegated with West Brom and Watford, but after an initial loan spell he made the move from Vicarage Road to the as yet unnamed Stratford Stadium permanent in a £2.5 Million transfer.
Les quickly became a cult hero, leaving his mark on many an opposition player as well as sometimes his own! He played over 80 games and scored nine goals, more than a lot of dud forwards signed by the club in the past! Fans can only wish him well with the news that he has signed for Wolves for £3.5 Million.
The Player's desire to be back where his family live meant that Wolves were the ideal club for him, Hammers even made a profit on his sale, how often can that be said? - Ed
