OK.. you win.

Son Heung-Min, our best player.. didn't play that well today. Hopefully he will find some form soon. : )

I'm sure he will. Pretty clear to me though that, like Harry, we've already seen the best of him. He's only going to get worse from here on in, though he'll still have some good games of course.

I think they can still be good enough for a couple of years yet. It was only last season they they both had amazing production. We might not get them to hit that level, but they should still be good enough for us to be successful, if we sort the rest of the team out.

A&C's a cunt, Hercules wanks off cats...
He’s been shit for weeks. Needs a rocket up his arse like the rest of them.
Both Kane and Son should be dropped at present, unfortunately what would that leave us with going forward? We have almost zero goal threat from elsewhere, so you'd be sacrificing a pair that has the potential to score goals if they got their act together, for replacements who almost certainly won't produce goals even if playing at the top of their game.

It's not an easy situation for the Manager I imagine, but he almost has no option but to try and play them back into form, must be frustrating.

Yeah, I still think both are quality players. I'm not saying they won't look great again, though I think with Harry a lot will depend on whether he gets his move. But Kane has definitely lost some of his better attributes to an extent, while Son seems to have less explosive moments. Once he loses more of his pace it will be interesting to see how he counters that with his overall game.
 
I'm gonna go on record here.

I've always thought Son blows hot and cold. Usually his form dips near the end of the season when he's burnt himself out.

He seems to get a lot more clarity than other players when he isn't playing well though.
Guess it's his character that wins him brownie points.

Yeah he has got no choice at all. Son is going through one of his lean patches though. Burnley up next and I think he has a good goal scoring record against them. So hopefully sunday will see a change in his fortunes.
 
He has his massive new 200k a week contract but is no longer performing or scoring like in previous seasons.
To be fair this season new( D.O.F nine game useless manager )its been chaos. I've always felt Son is clearly effected by the travel. Tends to dip post internationals. But the simple fact is football is about competition and we committed the cardinal sin of allowing our forwards to become utterly complacent. We need young players able to push both him and Kane. No players place should be sacred.
 
agree. He's been playing like a passenger. need some motm type of performance from him.
my bet is that Conte will get rid of him or son will get frustrated and leave himself

there's no place that allows son to play his best football the way Conte sets up

he's more like an AM under conte and he just doesn't fit there

i would've thought that he would go with a front 2 w/ Son up there but looks like he's planning on pairing a new striker with kane?

in any case, this deeper, AM sort of role doesn't really suit Son's game and my bet is that he continues to struggle

Fantastic player. Like many, has been way off his best, but his work rate today was outstanding.
He didnt stop, and took players with him.
Energy around the lads is refreshing.
