I admit I thought he looked a bit shit when he first got in the team at Spurs, but seriously how good is he? Got to be worth well over 100M by today's prices

Great players, looks like a striker from the 50s, scores the same amount of goals as well. Looking forward to the World Cup next year now

Most Spurs fans didn't think he'd make it when he first debuted. Early round UEFA Cup/Europa League games then out on loan, looked clumsy, no attribute stood out - not fast, not that big - but he was young, and the club kept wasting money on terrible forwards as well. Then he went on loan to Millwall. That seems to be the turning point for him as a player.. came back and was rattling them in for the reserve side, and when he came on as a sub. To the point where the manager (AVB and then Sherwood at the time, I think) was still picking Soldado and fans would sing for Kane. He'd come on as a sub and score then be dropped.

Then it was a game against Villa at Villa Park and he scored a deflected free kick to win the game. After that he went on a run where it seemed he'd score every week. And then the next season, and the next, and now this season.


And, FWIW, I don't think he'll be leaving. It would be utter madness to sell the club's figurehead the same season you move into a new stadium. He signs a new contract every season as well, and although that means nothing in the end.. how much would it take for Spurs to consider selling? 150, 200, 250m? and replace him with...? finding someone like him is nigh on impossible. Not just the goals but the rest of it.

I hope he sticks around. I know there is a dislike of Spurs on here but out of everyone else I'd like to seem them win things. I think they've built up the right way and have a bloody good team now.

For a couple of years i just didn't see it. He seemed to be too hell bent on scoring from just about anywhere in sight of the goal, which is always infuriating. But he's either worked hard on his finishing because now he seems to be capable of scoring any type of goal or his belief is that sky high he doesn't believe he'll miss. Helps that he's in a side that creates him the space and time to get so many chances. He works bloody hard as well.
At this stage i'd be surprised if he leaves for a couple more years yet. On current form i'd be cashing in on Delli Ali because he's been crap of late and looks infinitely replaceable unlike Kane.

What I like about Harry Kane is I know diddily squat about him as a person. He just seems to plays football and gets on with it. Why do I know things like Wayne Rooney has a child called Kai with his wife Colleen???

Kane is a rare example the Premier League system of clubs loaning out players for experience works. But how many other examples in the past 7/8 years are there?

There is an obnoxious little show-off in the Spurs squad who needs to learn quite a bit from Kane.
I won't embarrass Dele Ali by name, but if that ego-twerp player growd up Spurs would comfortably (and probably deservedly) win the league.

Amazing stats, hate Spurs but like Kane. Could be earning tons more than he currently does.

Nice get out for Levy, player comes demanding £100k plus a week, Levy points to Kane and says are you more important than him as he only earns £100k

Not sure about that. Suarez, Lewandowski, Aguero, Aubameyang, Higuain, Griezmann. Kane's goal scoring record in the league is just as good if not better than half of them, but banging in goals against midtable prem sides doesn't make you a great striker, you need to do something in the champions league too, and having played two games so far, Kane hasn't had time too. Although 5 goals in 2 games so far ain't bad! Have to consider all round play too, which is an area that all of the aforementioned bar maybe Higuain beat him in.

To be fair I think you could name most of the top players around and there's probably a thread on the bbs condemning them as being shit. The one about Sakho not being as good as Hangeland/Delaney when we were first linked is a personal favourite of mine.

He's a very untypical type of Premier league striker. Doesn't involve himself in controversy and is generally like a guy you'd meet in the park. He's one of a kind in this day and age. Fair play to him. Hate not to like him.

01-10-2017, 09:41 PM

Same goes for the defence. Our only hope of even getting to the quarters (probably won't happen will it because it's England) is the Alli-Kane combo.

Certainly got a strong front 3 with Kane, Sterling and Rashford. Not a great deal of quality behind it though.

Not a story that you hear about all the players who lower their handicaps or spend all their free time in night clubs with slappers.

I wonder if there could be a connection?

As much of a cock as he is, I'd still rather have Dele Alli in our side than against us! He hasn't quite carried over his club form to international level, but I'd say he deserves to be listed with those 3. Lallana also seems to perform in an England shirt.

Yup, Lallana is absolutely essential to England's success.

Spurs would be nowhere without Erickson who makes their attacks tick. Lallana seems the only player England have who might be capabile of filling that role but even then there is an enormous gulf in class.

That said, England have probably one of the worst defences in international football so it's all rather pointless talking about how good the front five are.

Whilst I agree, the Welsh had a bang average defence & midfield - much like we do. However, they had a match winner in Gareth Bale who dragged them through. If one of Kane, Rashford, etc can step up to the plate then we might do ok.

However, we have that absolute drip Southgate in charge of us so it'll never happen. It makes me weep when I imagine that prat in charge of some of the most talented attacking options we've had in years. It makes me weep even more thinking of Jordan Henderson captaining them. He is an absolute shithouse.

This conversation has made me think back to the mid/late 90s when we had Shearer, Sheringham, Ferdinand, Fowler, Cole and Owen all completing for places. With Beckham supplying the crosses and Paul Scholes in behind we should have done so much better than we did.

2002 was the year we should have won the World Cup. Beckham, Gerrard, Lampard, Neville, Campbell, Ferdinand etc all more of less at their peak (or not far off) with the likes of Ashley Cole, Joe Cole, Seaman and even Heskey to fill the gaps. If we had held on against Brazil there was also a fairly clear run to lifting the trophy.

I'd say 2004 Euro's also - had it not been for Rooney's broken metatarsal, who knows what would've happened. However, playing Scholes out on the left pretty much embodies everything that was wrong with Sven's time in charge.

I doubt we've had many better squads than the one we brought to the 2006 World Cup as well.

Benzema just signed a contract at Real to 2021 but you can see Kane being in the running to join them if they fancy spending £140m.

Personally I would love to see it happen. He’s a world class striker and if you put him into that team, he would go to another level again. He is definitely good enough for them.

As for England next year, central midfield is a big issue for us. Alli, Sterling, Rasford and Kane will cause problems but getting quality ball to them is our big issue.

1996 at home, too - the first XI in that squad were brilliant, even if the depth wasn't quite on par. If Gazza was an inch taller we'd have won that.
