Should be playing striker/CF and sit Kane on the bench and we'll see a much more consistent/threatening player.

I don't see him being a LW for extended periods of games anymore given his age. Particularly against good defenses.

He's 29. The same age as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. Ribery and Robben were the best winger duo on the planet not long ago, both when they were in their 30's. Neymar is 29, christ Di Maria has been one of the better wingers in world football for the last 3-4 years and he's 33.

There is zero reason a 29 year old can't play on the wing. 29 is not old.

Let me clarify.

A 29 year old winger playing for Spurs is unsustainable given the amount of tracking back that'll be required of him.

Also, throwing him way out wide also isn't the best use of his talents as a goal scorer in my opinion. He needs to play much more centrally.

Playing him centrally against lesser teams will work, but the big boys will do a job on him if you've got cunts like Moura and Bergwijn out wide.

With or without Kane up front, we desperately need quality players.

The bold is valid, I do thing his ability in 1on1 situations is by far his biggest asset, so trying to get the best out of that is probably the best idea.

But at 29 there's no reason you can't do a lot of tracking back. You're in your physical prime at that age, there's no deterioration of a players ability to do hard running by then, none at all. Barring having had severe injury problems or being a player who hasn't looked after themselves at all, that is.

Yep, this is the issue. Having both Bergwijn/Lucas on the wings long term will screw us. They contribute between them like 4-5 goals a season, and we don't have the midfielders who will compensate with a large goal tally.

We've beat City playing many times this way, without Kane and playing the way I just described.

We also had two games against Chelsea and Liverpool without Kane, playing with Son up top and centrally. We narrowly lost 1-0 both games but we were extremely competitive those games and maybe could/should have won.

We also beat Chelsea in the EFL cup last season without both Kane/Son starting, playing the way I described.

I don't know about you, but I think Son is showing signs of early fatigue in games. At least much more than a couple seasons ago. I think you'll see him continue to decline over the next 1-2 years as far as endurance goes.

Over a season, a front three of Son, Moura and Bergwijn (or anyone else we have out wide currently) will be a disaster.
 
worked in the champions league and against city earlier this season. kane is the problem

Look, Kane is annoying me as much as anyone else now but he was top scorer and the top assister in the Premier League only last season for fucks sake. He deserves a lot of the shit he's getting at the moment, but let's not pretend he wasn't very good only some months back.

If you think Kane is our problem right now then you're deluded. The problem is that the team as a whole is pretty shit, and under the management of someone who is pretty shit, and the club is run by a bunch of wankers who are extremely shit. Saying Harry is now THE problem is actually giving him far too much credit.
 
Fuck off with that "Oh, you're racist" bullshit, you helmet. I've said before here that there are people that "support" Tottenham because of Son and Son alone. If you want to pretend that's not the case then go give your head a wobble.

Fuck all racist about that statement. It's absolutely true.
But why do you have to single out Asian supporters? Wow also calling me a wobblehead....you really are something aren't you TylerB? Nonce.
 

Your Dad is a what now?

Imagine being so upset because you thought someone called you a "wobblehead". Lmao. You fucking snowflake prick.

And yes, I'll single out all of the Asians that support Son and not Spurs. Every single one of them. Which there are plenty. The same as I did with Mourinho who had his own fan club that moved on the moment he left.

Wait, so you go all out on attacking Asian supporters of Spurs for no apparent reason, get called out for it, then keep on making personal attacks. You are not right in the head you angry, pathetic old man. Go and seek some professional help. Seriously. Before it's too late.
 
Why?

We all know that because of Son, there are plenty of Asians that watch us. Certainly Koreans. But we all know if and when he leaves, they do too. So getting into a "debate" with one of those people is just cringe as fuck. Plenty of them have never liked Kane because they want it to be all about Son. Simple as that. Nothing more, nothing less.
What a load of bollocks. There might have been one or two in here who have posted shit about Kane, but the majority definitely want Kane to do well. You sure do spout a lot of shit, oh prejudiced one. Airfixx is a disgrace too, shame on him.
