He's fine as he is, we don't want him turning into another Harry Kane. Football is a team game.
I agree I think he is a different player to Harry, I wonder how well Lamella, Alli, even Erikson or Sossoko would do with him as a solid target man who can lay the ball off?

Yes Harry takes some selfish shots, but nobody in our side puts his body on the line, chases more down or brings others into play more than him. He's off form but as a player he contributes more to the team than any other forward we've had since Sheringham.

Janssen yesterday against Sweden. Again; far better on the ball than i expected.
Watched the game and he was by far the best player on the pitch. His hold up play is excellent, he's got excellent upper body strength. Seems to power his way through players. The only thing that needed work was his finishing, but considering he was top scorer in Holland last season, I'm sure that will come naturally to him.

The more I watch of him the more I think him and Kane should play together. Once they click they can be a formidable partnership.

Yeah, I think ultimately they'll work it out between themselves, but both are goalscorers. I would like to see Janssen in the #10 role with Kane ahead of him. Kane needs to be the point man, he does it as well as anyone else in the league.
