Feels like Eriksen redux: we hang on too long, he gets slower and more disinterested, and every game becomes a vanishing act where you can almost watch his value drop.
I said this would happen but some fans wouldn't listen. Levy should have sold for a decent price and move on rather than hold on at all costs!!!
 
As good as he is at his best, and let's not forget all the wonderful passes and assists he's done in a Spurs shirt since he evolved as a player. It's now got to the stage where we have to tell him to just stay inside the fucking box and go back to being a poacher. One thing he'll never lose is his finishing, which is generally top notch. I don't want to see him 40-50 yards away from the goal trying to thread balls through to the likes of Bergwijn and Lucas fucking Moura.

The issue is you're then relying on players like Bergwijn or Moura actually providing service to him. Because our midfielders don't seem to do it, nor do the fullbacks ala Liverpool. We just don't have players who can consistently get the ball in dangerous areas. I think a Kane playing in this manner would have a few more games like Palace where he simply has no influence whatsoever.

Sadly we could play him in 10 different roles and the issue would remain the same, the personnel around him.

Exactly. Put Harry in the Chelsea side and he would soon look like a world beater again. Or any top side that actually creates chances for that matter.

We create next to nothing, game after game after game, against the better sides.
 
Awful again today but to be fair
1) He was playing LW????
2) 0 service as per usual even with some more creative players on the pitch.

Look Chelsea's defense is probably the best in the league so its understandble he may have been quiet but seriously 5 games 0 goals . Its not good enough especially for someone of his calibre. He needs to start scoring again.

Our only hope in big games ( or honestly ... any games) for a long time has been Kane picks the ball up and plays Son in behind the defence. We obviously had that period under Jose where it was successful, but it's very predictable, and against a canny defender like T. Silva, predictable won't cut it.

And then the maybe 1-2 times a game it does come off, you're relying on Son being ultra clinical .. which whilst he's an elite finisher, isn't exactly going to work long term.

We just don't have players who pull defences out of their shape, or scare them. As much as Adama has no productivity, he would at least have been a curveball option who could make defenders uncomfortable.
 
Harry since his move didn't materialise.

There was no more on offer. Levy has a myriad of offences at his feet, this however isn’t one of his
It his totally his fault we're left with an unhappy striker and no alternative to him. Not to mention an unbalanced and badly put together squad full of rubbish like Winks and Doherty. Levy is in total charge of football operations, the buck should stop with him.

Even if he had sold Kane for 150M do you have any confidence that money would be spent well on replacements? Well if not who else to blame for that other than the Levy and the people he employs?
 
Should have sold him for 120m. Waste of space right now
Nobody was offering that much but even if they were, do you trust Hitchen and Levy to spend that well enough to replace him? Can Paratici make a difference and attract top players to a club in the ECL?

Our problems go further than Kane being unhappy here, that's just a symptom of the disease.
 
He's not justifying his place at the moment. Son up top or Lucas until he starts to actually look half fit. He's slow, offering nothing up front, only looks half decent when he has the ball in midfield to try and find a pass.

Absolutely poor form
 
I’m sick of looking at him lumbering around only half arsed. Just offload him ASAP. I’d hate to see him break Jimmy Greaves record. Mind you, in this Spurs team, he might never score again.
