I like how the reasons for not rating Harry Kane are becoming so contrived that coming up with them is becoming a feat in itself.

Opponent's fan: Kane is just a one season wonder.
*Kane wins golden boot in second full season*
Opponent's fan: Ok fine, but he can't do it against the big teams.
*Kane scores against all the big teams*
Opponent's fan: Ok fine, sure, but now everyone knows about him he's going to get found out pretty soon.
*Kane wins second successive golden boot*
Opponent's fan: Alright, I admit he's ok, but he can't do it for England.
*Kane scores 1-in-two for England over 20 games*
Opponent's fan: Whatever, you can't call him world class until he does it in the champions league.
*Kane scores two goals against Dortmund*

*opponent's fan looks stumped for a moment*
*opponent's fan sinks into deep concentration for about three minutes before suddenly sitting up*
Opponent's fan: I've got it! Harry Kane is rubbish because, even though he scores lots of goals, and even though he scores against all the best teams...he never scores when...wait for it...he never scores when the other team is playing better than Spurs and Spurs are being constantly pushed back into their own half. THAT, my friend, is the only measure of a good player!
Spurs fan: What about the Dortmund game?
Opponent's fan: Fuck's sake.

We just have to win a trophy. We've come oh so close like 3 or 4 times in the last 2 years. Now is the time we actually do so. Win a trophy and put all this shit to bed.

A little worried to be honest about him potentially getting the England captaincy. I'm not sure much good can come out of that travelling circus and general shit-show.

If we win something, it'll be about him getting treble his wages or whatever the fuck.

The speculation isn't going to stop any time soon regardless of success IMO.

Harry is far too good for England, know one else is even near his wave length, can be frustrating to watch. Makes you lucky to think Spurs have great players like Eriksen to link with him.
Then England should feel lucky to have him, but he'll need to leave to win things and be considered among the greats.

Edit: Shit...just saw the post on the previous page that some other brilliant douchebag on Twatter said the same yesterday.

In my defence (yes that is the correct spelling), I was the first to make that joke on this forum, but the frequent yet unintentional repetition of it only highlighted how unoriginal it truly was.

I did like this exchange...

Idiotic Human: "He needs to win things"
Reasoned Human: "Luke Chadwick's world class, is he?"
Wow this is horrific, actually saw this quote on there:
"Said it before he is one of the luckiest players around, he never looks in control of the ball".

Simply proves you think like the rest of us. You're just more quicker and stuff.

Platt to Bari
Players have always gone to where they will get paid or as in the cases for all the above, all went to clubs to win stuff.
Lol, that didn't turn out well, did it? Bari ffs :D
Well he moved on to sampdoria and juventus and did quite well actually. All teams in Italy at the time were a more exciting prospect than villa to be fair
