Totally agree

Amazing that he’s still banging them in. Just cannot stop getting in the right position time after time

At his best he has at the very least half a dozen shots at goal every game. For what seems ages now we’re lucky to see 1 or 2

It’s all a bit odd really and nobody can quite put there finger on what’s happened
Think its a mixture of Tunisia being dirty as fuck and no service. Remember England have no creative output like an Eriksen. Alli and Sterling were shit, meaning he was quite isolated up top.

I agree with you. The dynamism and drive in his attacking game, and also the strength on the ball that he's shown in the past haven't been there for a while imo.

Yet, he's that good that he can compensate. He's positionally excellent, still wins balls in the air, still has the eye for a killer pass wherever he is on the field, and...he scores!

Seeing all the non-Spurs English fans celebrate Kane, half of me thinks "fuck you, you'll be back to hating him in a months time" the other half is saying "Welcome to the Get Hard for Harry Club, we hope you enjoy your stay, it's good to have you with us, even if it's just for the day"

I the “What are Opposition fans saying about Harry Kane?” thread;


RAWK;

So Kane's going on about the golden boot again


Yeah but he's been scoring more in training now he's captain mate. It's in the bag.

Then oddly enough, radio silence.

SadCafe
The best no9 in the world atm. As much as I like Rom would swap them in a heartbeat

He's a brilliant player. It's quite sad that so many people look to avoid this truth.


I love Redrom I really do, and some of the flack he cops on here I dont get, hes a great striker. But Kane is a level above, Kane is arguably one of the best out and out strikers in the game.Players need to post stats season after season to move into that next bracket, and then perform on the big stages. Aguero, Suarez, Lewandowski, Kane. We see this with Mo Salah, can he back up that amazing season? Kane has posted four seasons in a row 20+ goals, one of those seasons 30+, and what two or three golden boots in there? Every time I see an article about Kane he is breaking some kind of record, some that have stood for a very long time. Most strikers will have dips in form where they dont have a great season, Rooney, Drogba etc. Im waiting for Kane to have one but im not sure he will without some kind of injury to hamper his game.

Still gonna take Lukaku over him all day lo
If you compare their records over the past 5 seasons it proves that you are being straight delusional. There is no contest between these players they shouldn't be spoken about in the same conversations.​


Even an injury slowing Kane down this season still saw Lukaku only manage to get 16 goals compared to Kane's 30 in the Premier League. He took on average nearly twice as many minutes per goal.

Had a brief look at RedCafe this morning and found this gem:

Are you for real? Lukaku has close to matched Kane over the past 5 years and he's hardly played in a creative side, and I include United in that. Kane gets twice as much service playing for a Spurs side that is built around him.

For Kane's goalscoring record, which is excellent, his general all round play is fairly shocking; He has no pace whatsoever, he could well have been Englands slowest player last night, and he provides little in terms of chance creation for team mates.

Lukaku has everything that Kane has and more. He runs the channels far more effectively, is stronger and more creative. I would not swap Lukaku for Kane.

You didn't set fire to it before launching it out the window?

Pure Aids.

The way he has come in all guns blazing as if it is actually a matter of preference or debatable as to who's better ala Messi & Ronaldo. Not even Lukakus mum thinks he's better than Harry.

Does anyone else keep forgetting that Harry is only 24 years old? Amazing young man with so much time still to give. Even if he stopped playing now he'd go down in footballing history as one of the greats.

Guy has been playing so much football over the last few years, and when he hasn't he's been rushing back from injury.

I agree that he's less dynamic lately than he has been in the past though. But the flipside is he looks like he'll be able to play for another 10-11 years easily in that case with his game intelligence and positioning.

Loved that feature on him before the game. Especially the bit about being left out of the cup until the final and asking not play because it didn't feel right. How anyone can't love this guy I don't know. Top bloke, top professional and top scorer. Once Messi and Ronaldo run out of steam in the next few years he could be in contention to be the best in the world.

In terms of the game itself it was a really frustrating game for him though. We really need to get the ball into him quicker and get some bloody crosses in. Too often we progress up the pitch only to turn back again. If he can score 2 goals with hardly a sniff at goal just imagine what he'll do with decent service.

Best thing is that we get to enjoy him all year round:sneaky:

I was so happy for him last night, after the crap he got over his performances at the Euros.
