Darren Anderton was a Spurs player from a generation I thankfully saw little of as this was a time whereby I discovered the female form and all its intricate majesties.

Anderton has since probably achieved more in the hairdressing game than he ever did in football. He’s an unconvincing football commentator.

I once had the misfortune to be in Club Wembley when he was talking and it honestly sounded like the air-con was playing up.

“You hope he’s Tottenham through and through,” Anderton told Press Association Sport. “The way he plays and the way he acts, it certainly looks like he’s happy where he is and hopefully he doesn’t forget that.

If the offer comes in from say Real Madrid, it will be up to Spurs to turn it down. If you look at his age, his talent, the way he is, he’s got to be worth around 拢150million, even 拢200million now.

“If they say yes, Harry will get the chance to speak to them and I’m sure if he walks into the Bernabeu with an opportunity to sign, he’d find it very difficult not to. And would you blame him? You couldn’t, absolutely not.”

Anderton wasn’t missed upon leaving Tottenham, and followed a remarkably similar descent into obscurity as Timothy Sherwood Esq., with young Darren going on to grace Birmingham, Wolves and Bournemouth with his ever shrinking wage demands before eventually realising he was surplus to the sport’s requirements.

By the time Harry’s child is of an age to be less reliant upon聽Kane’s extended family he’ll be 29 years of age.

Is it unthinkable that Kaneinho would quit on us? Of course not. But this is yet another nearly man serving up quotes for radio station that isn’t listened to by sentient beings.聽You’re boring, and you look like the result of an unpleasant mare and Jimmy Hill having consummated their love for each other.

    Anderton appreciates his time at Spurs but his status as some kind of club legend is pushing it a bit. He wanted to go to Manure but his injuries scuppered it.

    No wonder he’s going on about all this nonsense…

    Last night Brazil played a world cup qualifyer and tonight there’s a full programme of top flight Brazilian football. They’re all in Europe now but its sad in way. The great Brazilian sides of the 60’s 70’s and 80’s, it was like they were from another planet, there was a mystery about them when they all still played club football in Brazil. Its taken a bit of magic out the game.

    The trouble is if you sign anyone from RM you at least have to match their wages, Bale, Modric and Benzema will cost not much short of 1m a week. Mr Levy would be pulling his hair out.
    Not that I’m advocating this option, selling Kane that is.

    • mattspurs October 11, 2017 at 6:31 pm

      To give him his due, 9 league titles isn’t too shabby – he obviously went to Scotland like many others in order to play European football so won most of them there but he still won 2 in England. Add in a Cup winners cup and an FA Cup plus a few games for England and he’s a fairly decent player. As a pundit in the States he’s pretty dull but 10x more right to an opinion than many who chuck it around.

  • AccringtonSpurs October 11, 2017 at 2:23 pm

    It will be hilarious when Kane turns down a move. I think Levy is sensible enough not to force him to move for the money, and I believe Kane will want to stay longterm. This rumour and hype could be revisited for many seasons to come.
