There was no lack of effort from Harry today. You're just seeing what you want to see.
I remember when he'd charge at the opposition when they had possession. Pressing putting in slide tackles. There's no edge to him in a spurs shirt anymore. There's a difference between genuine effort and whinging acting like you care. And if he can't do it anymore then it shows he is declining physically and people are right about him.

His mobility clearly isn't what it once was. But I don't believe it's through a lack of trying. Just injuries and fitness.
 
No but from what I have seen of him down the years I would like to see some of what he has done previously like Chelsea Woolwich Burnley to be replicated. Once I've seen what a player is truly capable of then I think they should show that more often. He can score outside the box no problem so I want him to do that more often than he has since Woolwich at home last season. Please do not mistake my criticism for hatred my criticism towards son is purely based off of the fact that I've seen what he can do and I want to see that more often.
You shouldnt have to explain that criticising someone doesnt mean you hate them.. then again its the world we live in
 
Looked like he was enjoying himself today.
But H rightly had cause to question him a couple of times.
When the two click under Conte rules I am expecting fireworks.

There is something missing between these 2 at the moment isn't there. I think Son has lost some respect for kane like a lot of us after his antics over the summer.
 
Gave the ball away? So what.
Well believe it or not giving the ball away leads to opposition possession which believe it or not they use to score goals from. I prefer it when players can control a ball and retain it. Keep doing it as many times vs Liverpool and see if you're saying so what then when salah smashes in a hat trick.

Nope. Don't agree with you. Overall I thought he had a very good performance. He was involved in all three goals and worked hard as usual. Did he give away the ball one too many? Don't know maybe he did but not even close to impacting his overall performance rating to be poor how you rated him.

Don't think his touch was that great today.. seemed to be a little of it in that sense.

But, he was involved heavily in all 3 of our goals. The 1-2 with Lucas for the first, the corner that Davies headed on to Sanchez for the 2nd, and his goal for the 3rd. That to me is what he is there for, to contribute to our offensive unit. So games like today from him are still great IMO due to his output rather than his overall play.

I agree with this, I would say it's not really a lack of effort from Harry, but more a lack of energy and/or pace. This seems to slowly be the player Kane is becoming now, with a lot less pressing (he still does at times though).. but it stands out compared to others around him such as Lucas.
 
Sons cross has been excellent this season. Every cross looked dangerous. I would really like him to take our FK as well. He also just started his hot streak again and probably will be on fire for the next 5 to 6 games.
We have to make the most out of it.

In the east Respect and Honour is everything, to air in public like Harry did, whilst Son was renewing for the peak years of his career (hopefully), must have been a shock. It's no coincidence Son's form nose dived as Harry returned, as did the gusto of the team as a glued unit.

He hasnt played 55 games as a central striker has he? ,Are they counting yesterday as central striker?

Surely we havent seen him play centrally for 55 league games though. Just seems incorrect especially as Llorente would play centrally when we did have him and kane was injured. Probably includes all the cups and what not.

To be fair, im not sure. You may be right.
Their stats are pretty reliable thou.

Transfermarkt has Son at 60 goal contributions (37 goals and 23 assists) in 74 apps across all competitions when he's played at CF.

This is even more impressive given none of those are penalties and he only started in 61 of those games.

So he has 60 non penalty goal contributions in 61 starts / 74 apps.

That's pretty insane if you think about it.

Definitely seems a little wrong.

For eg 18/19 they think Son played 16 games as a striker? Kane started 27 games, surely son wouldnt have played centrally as well in those games and Llorente started 6 games too. That leaves 5 games where we didnt have a striker. He might have moved around centrally to help the striker but he was definitely not the lead striker in 16 games.

While obviously son is great and all that, theres numbers just seem a bit off. And if they mean hes played behind the striker in a CF position then now we have two players who are better at as a 10 instead of 9.

Playing as a 4-4-2 with two CFs? That's my guess.
