Harry Kanes’s England’s teammate John Stones said:

“Harry’s been doing it for years now and I think he’s got that hunger that he’ll keep doing it. He is in great form for his club and he’s raring to go and bring that into international football. It’s great to have him here for England.”

Kane’s sheer bloodyminded determination to succeed has been extraordinary. A cynic might suggest that the system at Spurs fundamentally failed him.

Loaned out over and over to the Orient, Millwall, Norwich and Leicester City never scoring more than a handful of goals, never achieving anything of note, only recalled when Tottenham’s transfer policy had failed.

Alex Inglethorpe one of the myriad coaches Kane played for said of Kane’s early days at Spurs:

“When he first came into the under-18s as a 15 year old, he stood out in the sense he looked a bit gangly. He moved slightly awkwardly, he was a bit cumbersome. But look closer, he had a lot of ability, a great technique. I think he surprised people how good he was. Tactically he was very flexible. He often played in midfield. I remember seeing him once playing as a holding midfielder.”

Let’s not fuss over the whys and the wherefores, what is paramount here is that THFC match the boy Kane’s future expectations.

Suddenly after 13 years on the books, Spurs have got one of the world’s hottest footballing properties on their books. Does Levy know what to do?

    Some guy called Tony called me a bitch ass and told me to shut up. Yes he did on this very blog. I’m not bothered but what I’m I, a donkey or a female dog? I think I’m a donkey. I work very very hard and most importantly, I have eyes like a donkey. The eyes of a donkey may well be the most beautiful out of the animal Kingdom.

    Of course levy knows what to do, I’m more scared of uncle joe and wether he wants to cash in on Kane one day.

    Levy is not stupid he knows
    no Kane no chance

  • Sid Trotter October 4, 2017 at 6:19 pm

    Does Levy know what to do. If it is a question of putting the milk in the oven I would suggest he knows. If its about him speeding down a country lane after a bottle or two of chablis, I would say yes again. With Harry Kane. If he asked Harry to put the milk in the fridge, I’m sure Harry would do it. If he asked Harry to drive drunk I’m sure he would decline. What was the question again?

    • Sid Trotter October 4, 2017 at 6:20 pm

    Just back from France after a delightful weekend with a lingerie super model.

    Now, I always thought France’s national sport was cycling but they seem crazier than us as regards the Premiership. Non stop on one free channel with a shed load of live games and their golden boy…..Le Kane.

    Poor old Daniel must wake up in the middle of the night with a cold sweat thinking about this one but put simply, He would be linched if He sold Kane.

    Simply amazing how He has progressed. I bet no one here who saw him on his debut in the Europa League could ever guess how He would turn out.

    In many sports its not until you develop strength that you can then show what you’ve got to the full.

    A real late developer if ever there was one.

  • ronwol196061馃嚚馃嚘 October 4, 2017 at 6:10 pm

    Im not sure that he does but in assessing I would say Id rather sell Dele for 120m than Kane for 300m

    • witTank October 4, 2017 at 6:17 pm

      I’d be sorely tempted in a swap deal with Modric & Bale if all parties were up to it

      • ronwol196061馃嚚馃嚘 October 4, 2017 at 6:24 pm

        M and B for A and K ???

        No way

        A for M

        • witTank October 4, 2017 at 6:27 pm

          to clarify, M & B for Dele.
          As the former are getting on a bit in football terms and Bale is the new sick note I reckon R.Madrid may be tempted but something cute would have to be done on the wages front

          • ronwol196061馃嚚馃嚘 October 4, 2017 at 6:31 pm

            I would take M for Dele even
            Its ver difficult to find such a CM
            That would also help Eriksen grow into that role later
