First Premier League start for Spurs, and a first Premier League goal. Every time I see Kane he has improved his game, be it becoming stronger, faster, or more confident. He showed a lot of the attributes you expect from young, home-grown players - dedication, determination, drive - plus plenty of off the ball movement, something we have lacked too often when in possession.
He has plenty of doubters but I have belief that Kane could develop into a very good player. With one upfront being the in vogue setup these days, I am very happy for Kane to be third choice striker.
In a pretty bleak season, we have one shining light. The Dane playmaker has come into his own in 2014, creating and scoring goals for fun.
The change to two upfront might have seen Chadli dropped, instead he played in central midfield along side Paulinho. While it was not perfect, and was against a very poor Sunderland side, Chadli has seemingly done enough to get him in the starting eleven, even if he has to be shoe-horned in somewhere.
Impressing on loan at Fulham, showing creativity to go with his energetic displays. Surely there is a place for him at Spurs next season?
Started for Torquay last week and was one of their better players. Should get a run of games until the end of the season.
Goals! Goals I tells ya! For Spurs!
Starting to feel a little for Tim. The drip drip of news leaking out of the club is not helping anyone, especially Sherwood, who is having to toe the party line when questioned about his future. He's smart enough to know he can't speak out now if he wants a role at the club for the future, but it now seems inevitable he will be replaced in the summer and I am not sure he has done his reputation any good in his temporary stint in charge. That said, he didn't have much of a reputation to begin with, at least he is on people's radar for better or worse.
Some absolutely woeful crossing, a failure to track back, and annoying habit of giving away silly free kicks in dangerous areas. He had a chance this season to prove he was up to the required standard, and simply put he has failed.
You can be defensively suspect if you provide plenty going forward, offensively limited if you are a solid rock, and neither of both if you put in plenty of effort. Rose is falling short on all three fronts.
Tottenham Press Office
As if they hadn't had enough to deal with this season, the typically anonymous 'sources' cause yet another ruckus for the press department to sort out. They must miss the days of Harry Redknapp.
