Harry Kane Statement Video Analysis

By Harry Hotspur -

That Harry Kane statement casts doubt on so much of the information already in the public domain, specifically a piece by Dan Kilpatrick in the Evening Standard, which claimed that THFC had begun fining the England captain and that the fine would be ultimately commensurate with the number of days that Kane was absent.

The statement itself is difficult, in terms of being something one can extract significant developments from, however, the phrase ‘during my time with the club’ is wording that certainly veers towards past tense.

I take a view that all eyes are on Charlie Kane.

Seems like a lot of people are almost willing ‘poor old harry’ to be sold to City. I personally would rather see him in a spurs shirt for the next 9 months – who cares what he’s worth next summer. We need him if we are to have any chance of getting back on our feet and up into the top 4 again.

Sure he might have the hump for a few weeks, but he’ll soon knuckle down if he wants that PL scoring record.

I’d like Kane to stay too but Levy knows this is the window he’ll get peak price for Kane. His price will drop from this window onwards and Levy won’t want to miss out on that opportunity.

It’s our one opportunity to really rebuild the squad hence the new DoF. Let the bloke go, he’ll just go to City and look relatively ordinary next to all the other galacticos and get a trophy.

We’re all bored off how Spurs are currently playing. 90% of how we currently play is down to everything channeling through Kane – we need a reset. Get a striker in who still has pace and a playmaker and let’s try something different.

Kane has probably peaked in general but it’s clear he peaked for Spurs and England two or three years ago.

Talk now of Levy being ready to deal at £120m plus £20m in add-ons. That feels like a goer. At that price I think I’d prefer if Levy asked for £110-120m plus Bernardo Silva. Whatever shape the deal takes, the deal is definitely going to happen now. I hope Paratici really has got one or two quality strikers lined up.

Dem ankles.

he’s slowed a lot the last two seasons but as he’s world class he’s adapted his game totally to be more an ‘all rounder’

there is a limit though and he fear is he’ll end up a good ‘late career Shearer’ type of heavy artillery trundler

if you’re going to sell him…well now is the best time, no question

Debatable.

whole team needs freshening and previously we were set up around Kane

no Kane and you have to completely start again, could be better, we’d gone flat with Kane

I think he’s peaked, I’m not sure he’s good enough to carry a poor side any more – same thing happens with England and Kane

makes sense for him to move too, less need to create absolutely everything himself at City

If they’re trying to organise it so Silva is part of the deal we should jump at that. Solves a squad issue at the same time for us, so can then focus the still huge fee into replacing Kane and getting another defender and maybe a speedy attacking midfielder. This could get work out well for the squad as a whole.

I think that the point you are missing is that Chelsea are close to agreeing a dal for Lukaku for circa £95 mill. You can argue the merits of both players to your heart’s contents but City will not pay £150 mill for Kane. Panto or not, they are not that stupid and what will Kane be worth after another fruitless year at Spurs? We need the money to either reinforce the team or to pay down debt whichever is your interpretation of another Levy masterclass. Modric was younger . Kane is 28 with a history of ankle injuries.

Do you think his price will be the same in a years time and what do you think he will achieve with Spurs if he stays? at least he has a shot winning the PL if he leaves can’t say the same if he stays I feel sorry for him for real cause of his naivety with Levy&Co he should had an exit clause before he signed the last contract now let that be a lesson the next upcoming players not to make the same mistake with baldy.

How you can be certain that Levy sanctioned Kane staying away from training is that Bale done the same and it was like Bale didn’t want to play,if that was the case than Levy wouldn’t of forgiven Bale and got him back to Spurs on loan.the players and club owners making the fans like mugs. The transfer are agreed months ago between lawyers. Levy will get a nice % of that transfer coming in as commission for revenue generated. Kane will get his % of transfer fee and nice new salary ,win for all except for us fans. Honestly ,today is the day where it hit me and I realized the football of today is not the football of my childhood

It’s hard to believe any of Kane, the Spurs publicity machine or Guardiola frankly and there is precious little real evidence to make a judgement. IMO the fact that we are going after players at all, after a disastrous season financially, is evidence enough that a gentleman’s agreement has been reached between City and Spurs (who cares about the alleged one between Kane and Levy?) and it involves all the pieces falling into place in a convenient and credible order. So we get player sales/exits happening ( Rose, Foyth, Toby, Coco and others to follow) plus incomings in the shape of two loans to buy and one swap deal + cash-so far .Kane should and will go at some stage to City who are the only real suiters despite what Guardiola suggested. The other point of interest in all of this is just how ludicrously ineffective FFP is. I’m sure City are cute enough to comply with the rules but shouldn’t the word “Fair” be taken out of the equation? Or better still isn’t it time to take another look at the rules? I mean come on £100m+ for one player is obscene and is the playing field of less than 4 clubs in the PL.

Apologies if this duplicates since the initial effort is awaiting approval for some reason.

Look, in the end who really cares about this he said she said stuff? Bottom line is that our famous asset managers bungled another position by somehow managing to antagonize our best player maybe ever and at the same time any trade counterparties that could return something close to max value for him. There’s nothing else really to say.

Lukaku looks as if he will sign for Chelsea for £95 mill. Two things spring to my mind, firstly, that takes out another rival for Kane although we all know that Chelsea and Spurs don’t do business with each other, similarly to other clubs with our beloved chairman. Secondly, as they are the same age, how does Lukaku’s price compare to any putative offer for Kane? I think it highly unlikely that City will pay much more and Levy’s bluff will be called. I am not privy to the conversations between Kane and Levy but my suspicion is that there was some form of agreement. I think that Kane has been far too patient in waiting for the club to match his own ambitions and that is down to Levy whom as we are all aware is a congenital liar. By the way, for all Levyologists on this site, Romero is a loan not a purchase as of this moment. All the mistruths and rumours and disinformation that permeate the MM stratosphere come from Levy’s PR team. I will state the blindingly obvious opinion, shared and constantly repeated by so many other contributors to this blog that until Levy is gone, we will never make progress as a football club.

Pretty sure it’s Spurs (Levy) who refuse to talk to Chelsea, after they where rather ‘sharp’ stealing players from under us.

Lukahu’s price is because inter are desperate for the money – is why Conte left them. They need to cut 30% from their wage bill before the season starts; that’s not reflective of our situation.

On this one, I’m on the club’s side. Harry has tried to engineer a price (the Neville interview) and put Levy under pressure. Levy is stubborn and will sit it out for what he believes is the right price. If City don’t want to bid it (or even near) then tough to them and tough to Kane.

One thing I would prefer though is that we do what Leverkusen did the other year – publicly say to Utd ‘we don’t want sell. We don’t need to sell. If you really want our asset, this is the price and you need to sort out before this date because we don’t want the disruption.’ Utd backed down, Sancho stayed another season, then Utd went in again, but at a better price and at the start of the window.

We’ll know how this ends in a couple of weeks. I can’t call it either way – yesterday I’d have said Kane will still be here this season; today after watching city look impotent in the shield, I wonder if they may decide to bite the bullet.

I think you will find that by waiting another season by not paying Leverkusen’s asking price last season that Utd shaved around £30 mill off the price. Ask yourself, If City do the same, what will Kane be worth next season at the age of 29 and for all we know flogged into the ground because Levy has been incapable of buying a secondary striker for many seasons. I can remember when we had four good strikers on the books.

Alternatively what’s he going to be worth having won the golden boot in the prem again and top scored as England get to a world cup final, and covid financial impact being lifted.

Levy for his faults has at least realised that we need the DoF. It’s notable (well I think anyway) that things went south after Baldini left; now we’ve got a DoF again and things look like they are picking up – hopefully not in a Frank Arneson scatter gun approach. Big shame it’s too late to have really built something on Poch’s watch, but we’ll never truly know how much of that was Levy and how much Poch.

On that I disagree. Each DoF has improved the profile of the club and got us to the next level by the time they’ve left – even Pleat in his pseudo role improved the squad. The only one I was glad to see the back of was the French chap who went to Liverpool.

Paratici at Juve was something of a rarity in the DoF role, they don’t tend to stick around much longer than a couple of seasons – just look at arnesons career post Chelsea. Hopefully we’ll have a good half decade out of P. and not be glad to see the back of him when he does move on.

Guardiola put the spotlight Enic/ Levy showing everybody they are the ones who holding back any dealings with Kane transfer, now Enic/Levy propoganda machine is full swings 1st they tried to put some fans against Kane by saying Kane refused to train then Kane came out and dismissed that lie now they going around with City brought £75 million and some players and that lie won’t last again even though some stupid fans still believe Enic/Levy after +20 years of experience with them. City and Guardiola are not stupid and they will never rate Kane £75mill Pep in his press conference yesterday even said publicly Harry Kane is one of the best strikers in the world and a lot of teams are after him and he is a different level than Grealish the most sad and disappointing is some of Spurs fans still believe Enic/Levy after the suffering they been last 20 years some times I wonder even if they are in their payroll cause anyone who pays his tickets and spends money in the team can’t be so dumb and insensitive at least he has to look after where he spends his money and hold accountable the people who is misusing his money and takes him or her for a ride.

Now the question is what Levy wants cause it seems he doesn’t know what he wants he needs to come out and say Kane is not for sale like the Dortmund chairman did in Haaland or come to the table set your price and start negotiations but our chairman can’t made up his mind and just playing media and spinning games as he use to and that is all I was highlighting hope it clears cheers.

If it doesn’t sound right or plausible then chances are it isn’t. And that’s my problem with the Kane statement. Both he and the club could’ve put this to bed on day 1. Both chose to let social media run riot with speculation.

Only when one of our own gets stick from his own fans does he decide to make a statement. Seems suspect to me.

As part of the small minority, I’m not doubting Harry’s integrity over this.
IF he had permission to extend his holiday & IF he has been in contact with THFC throughout his break, both of which none of us truly know for sure, why should he issue any statement before now? (He was enjoying quality time with his family & doesn’t need to answer to anyone except THFC, his employer).
& THFC don’t need to issue a statement either to answer or respond to anything the press, pundits, ex-players, fans, the general public, etc choose to say, fabricate or speculate about, it’s simply ‘club business’ which only concerns those that need to be aware & would only have been rubbished by those that choose to, without being party to any real facts.
Not believing Harry is calling him out as a liar, solely based on either believing trash press reports or a keeping a simplistic viewpoint?
“Won’t go into the specifics of the situation,” doesn’t have to be interpreted as anything amiss, maybe the ‘truth (facts) will out’ if he &/or the club feel the need to say?
“Back Saturday, AS PLANNED,” isn’t something a liar could state without being found out eventually, so what would be the point?
“Wouldn’t do anything to jeopardise the relationship I have with the fans….This has always been the case as it is today” surely we all KNOW he loves the club & the support he’s given, would he seriously lie about that??
& whether Harry leaves or not, the press will always report with artistic licence or spin to keep the media circus/feeding frenzy ‘alive,’ & so making this front & back page lead news story all bloody week!

All good points, but I disagree about putting a statement out sooner. Along with an agent Harry almost certainly employs a PR agency, and when this media storm started he could – and should – have addressed it.

Citeh spent over £143m on three players last season apparently, the money is not an issue for them, but lets overlook that…
Looking at things today it’s clear Kane wants out and before things turn sour we should resolve this situation quickly, but Levy being Levy will make things difficult before the deal is finalised.
Personally I wouldn’t have let Harry train in the current climate as the atmosphere at Hotspur Way must surely have gone from one of excitement, with the arrival of Romero to one of being awkward to say the least, with the presence of Harry.
They need to create a state of positivity around the place, which the new signings will help with, so sorting the Kane issue asap is the priority imo in order to move on .

Harry tried to play a game and lost gentleman’s agreement or not no one has bid anywhere near what Spurs will want. If HK has a problem then it’s with City who bid lowball plus inferior players if they truly want him then bid the £150m and see if Spurs accept.

Lets be realistic here, at the age of 28 Kane just hasn’t got the time to wait for the another painstakingly slow Spurs rebuild has he?
Under Poch he was told that the club would win trophies “soon”, but as we all know the “project” fizzled out because Levy wasn’t prepared to invest in it. Levy’s promise of ambition was a pack of lies as we went nearly 2 years without adding a single player to the squad. We sold our best RB’s in Walker and Trippier, plus we sold Dembele and Eriksen without replacing either of them. Most of that time Kane was the only decent striker we had and was acutely overplayed.
Personally I think Kane has been incredibly patient and tolerant of Levy and enic, because he’s basically been screwed over hasn’t he? If I was him I’d be fuming, and I bet most of you would be too.

What – “Best striker in the PL earning £225k pw shocker”,
Nothing to do with money.
I genuinely hope that when Levy finally fooks off he takes all his acolytes to his next project.

Do me a favour! Poor old Harry spent most of that time playing for a Champions League team (including a final) and becoming a multi-millionaire and England Captain, we have hardly been a disaster for his career.

I don’t know why you’re so keen to see him shipped off to City – I personally would prefer to see him play for us this season, not them.

Well being an unselfish type, unlike you it seems, I’d rather what’s best for Kane because I like the lad and admire him as a true professional who has been loyal to us despite the never ending bullsh it from Levy and enic.
Staying with us one more season will win him nothing, we all know that. It’s also likely that due to being grossly overplayed again his ankle injuries are only going to get worse perhaps terminating his career early. It’s obvious he’s already slowed down quite a lot too.
I think the best all round option for everybody would be to let the lad follow his dreams (as promised him by Levy apparently) to win trophies at an ambitious club, as opposed to one that can’t even press on when at the top like us) and sanction a sale now.
We need to move on from Kane and rebuild properly, or we’re just delaying the inevitable for one more trophyless year, and likely ruining his career into the bargain.Get the money in, invest it in quality and watch him at a real football club. As for us I’m sorry to have to tell you but things are never going to change under enic. The Poch years were a fluke and were pretty soon terminated by Levy because “Glory Costs too Much”.

Bottom line- Harry wants to leave, ENIC wants to sell. But who are the buyers that can pay 100-150m? City, Chelsea, PSG, China. That’s it. Bayern have Levandowski. United only if they move Pogba for a high price, which seems doubtful. Harry I imagine won’t play for Chelsea. So that leaves PSG and City to sign Messi and Harry. With Barca, Madrid and Juve in the bin having no money, that’s it. City are not idiots. They won’t bid against themselves as ENIC always does. Prediction- we’ll see Harry in a Spurs kit this season and wait for the BoE and ECB to print more money so someone (probably Madrid) can buy him next year.

And next year at 29 years old plus more injuries we will be lucky if we get 90 million also I will suspect he will not give his all as he has been doing ( as what happened with Erickson he became half the player he was)

Harry is under contract for 3 more years, unlike Erickson. But anyway, what we have here is a stalemate where neither side wins. Leave it to Levy to turn a gift winning position in HK into this mess by worrying more about the pawns than the important pieces.

Right about Ericksen but if Kane is a certainty to be injured this season he cannot be worth as much?

No the club say he is not for sale. Unless our chairman is lying to us.

The PRESS say the club have said he’s not for sale.
I don’t want him to go but believe IF anyone stumps up £150/160m, he will be sold.

As mentioned previously, it’s cobblers. He (or his agent) played their hand and lost. If he were genuine he could have released this 5 days ago.

“I wont go into the specifics of the situation” suggests there IS a situation. There is no way this is a “well I was always supposed to come back Saturday” scenario though, so something stinks.

Of course, I guess Levy could have played him for an absolute mug, told him not to come back until Saturday, and then leaked that he was AWOL. lol

I mean you wouldn’t put it past him would ya!
