You spectacularly miss the point. The assertion was, and I'm going to paraphrase since I CBA to go find it right now, 'on his day Kane will best any CB'. My point was that to believe this is to have an incorrect impression of what Kane is as a player by A) utilizing a more physically dominant player and B) predicting a bad game...because he always gets nothing from VVD and the assertion was against ANY CB. You don't get to complain about VVD being good when it doesn't work out...you adjust your belief to fit the facts; not ANY but MANY*. It was hyperbole that wasn't walked back when called on it.
Now you've summarized stats (amazingly poorly I might add) to suggest I'm a little off the mark. Similarly, folks have pointed to his efforts in our goal on Sunday to deflect criticism. I say A) this is a bad use of stats and B) if you watched the game you'd have seen Kane had little influence other than popping up on the backside of a hopeful punt (and we know it was hopeful because HK was able to control with his feet) and doing that basic this any PL forward would be expected to do. I don't think we'd want to predicate our attack on such moves.
And in case anyone was wondering what truly creating a goal by your singular genius looks like...welp, here it is...
crtical conversation about what tell me really... you guys are picking at every little detail when it comes to this man performance like he must magically carry this whole team on his back to the promise land... as far as I am concerned this man has performed well for tottenham hotspur for most of his career... yes he has some bad patches like every other footballer in the world...but i dare spurs to sell him and find someone better... and please i'm begging you try to grow a brain before trying to chat all this [email protected]#$%y in my ears thank you and have a nice day.You know, this thread was wide open for your comments for the last couple weeks but you were nowhere to be found. Folks wanna have a critical conversation on things and you pop up like a bad penny with nonsense like this.
So either contribute something of substance or STFU.
Yeah still interested man. You choosing to infer that I'm happy about the way Kanes been used(and himself used the club ) by my saying we need context regarding him shows the odd level if obsession. You are so triggered by one simple statement that you disagree with you've built a whole inaccurate narrative around my position. Time will judge Kane whatever you think in 100 years his record will be all folk talk about. Greaves had his detractors and no one cares. This was Is my substantive point, but you know VVD is unbeatable........and who gives a shit about what HK is about to break when the club is not winning? To many want HK to get records while we're playing in the conference league. And folks were angry when Pep called us The Harry Kane Team. Would you rather win the league or HK to beat Shearer?
