Its a 'Times' article, so you cant read it without registering (n)
But Im sure we can all guess the gist of what it says, we have seen it with our own eyes.

I don't suppose there is a heat map showing his positioning pre and post injury is there? I'd love to see one of where he has been playing this season as opposed to when he was at his goalscoring best.

We've known for years that he's gonna have a bit of a rough patch. He never gets a pre-season due to tournaments (under 21 then euros then world cups etc etc) Plus he's been on fire for so long that it was inevitable!

Moura stealing his goals.
Harry scored two in August
so he's well ahead of the season curve.
Assist for Moura
so perhaps he's passing more.

Same thing happened to Fernando Torres after he played Euros, Confederations Cup and World Cup in consecutive summers, all while leading the line for Liverpool in Prem, CL etc. Eventually he just couldn't do it any more, his body caved in and he was never the same player again. This is happening to Kane right now. Come 60 minutes gone in games he can barely get around the pitch. We need to take action or his career is going to be destroyed. Why on fucking earth he hasn't been pulled out of these England games is absolutely beyond me.

He's been in the best form of his career*

So explain Messi Ronaldo even Rooney to an extent.

Kane definitely has other higher gears I feel he's pacing himself for the long haul and we will see a better team performance coming soon. I feel Kane could do a bit more with his other all fitness he has packed on so much muscle of late imo he could be with a bit less muscle and more flexibility.

Stuart Pearce said on The Debate last night that you have to take into account that when people come up against Spurs now that most teams will have numbers in defence and make it as difficult as possible because of our rise over the last few years. That means less time and space for Kane who is also more respected by defenders because of all the goals he's scored.

Kane has been either the top or 2nd top scorer in the league for past 4 seasons, 3 of which we've finished in the top 3. Teams have been sitting back against us for years and it's not like defenders suddenly thought "shit, this Kane's quite good...maybe we should mark him better" after his injury.

Won't will he when he's spending half his time in midfield.
Would be interesting to see how his stats from the end of last season compare to the start of this season. With Lucus up top with him and Alli/Eriksen playing deeper it seems like he's been getting a lot less service than usual.

Times article shows a massive drop off in shots, shots on target, first time shots and touches in the penalty box since the Bournemouth injury. The good news is that his shots to goals ratio has vastly increased. The author speculates on whether this is temporary or whether Kane has had to fundamentally adapt his game due to the injury.

It's a shame that the article didn't have any stats on top speeds and numbers of sprints before and after the injury. I fear that both of these have dropped off dramatically too.

So the question is which one of us is going to kill Asmir Begovic for fucking up our Harry?

Yeah, but he was a one season wonder in all those seasons.

NOW he's not.

He should have a massive heat map, having been on fire for so long. Huge.

It is ridiculous that he hasn't been pulled out of the game. Ferguson would not have stood for it, time for Poch to do the same.

We don’t really need stats to see he is a shadow of himself in terms of movement and confidence in front of goal, he will get through it but only once he’s had a break, enforced by an unforeseen injury I predict.

Hopefully with Son back we can give him a rest. I feel he is the only other person who can effectively lead the line.

Llorente is only good for protecting a lead or as a last throw of the dice.
