“Utterly disrespectful” Agents Of One Significant Spurs’ Figure Are Dismayed By The Harry Kane Talk
By Harry Hotspur -

While journalists play ‘grab a paragraph and make a claim‘ with the Gary Neville and Harry Kane golf chat, there’s an entirely separate game of cat and mouse being played out at Hotspur Way, which to some minds may reflect the short-changing nature of the mainstream press. This place operates

TWO MONTHS AGO this place told you that nothing lasts forever and that both of Tottenham’s elite footballers were reviewing their positions. Nothing’s changed. Evidently, nothing has changed.

While the online world pumps out yards of speculative Harry Kane content, it’s Son Heung-min’s potential departure that has taken a rather undignified backseat. Sonny is 28 and without doubt a world-class player in his own right.

A source close to the club assures me that Sonny’s representatives are genuinely unhappy with not just the narrative that they believe the club has allowed becoming central – but they also feel that the media process has been utterly disrespectful. Son Heung-min has been an exceptional talent and one that has been refusing to discuss a contract since even while Pochettino was in post.

I take a view that should Kane go, which looks more than a ‘maybe’, then Sonny will walk for even less money. Daniel Levy is in trouble.

Was always on the cards. Who can blame any good player wanting out. Only the deadwood will remain.

I don’t get all this Son criticism tbh. I think he is world class but his performances have dropped off massively with virtually the entire team. He’s not stupid either and he can see what’s going wrong with the club in the background and hence affecting the morale of the whole team.
To talk about him on the same level as Bergwijn and Moura is just gobsmacking. They are not fit to tie his laces. Bergwijn does nothing except score one screamer every season and Moura only comes to life in about one game in ten, one of which of course being that famous semi. 90% of the time his tricks don’t come off. Son finishes 90% of the time by comparison. His stats by comparison say it all.
I don’t care whether players like Son and Bale can press, they are not in the team primarily for that, let the regular donkeys do the pressing. Son has the ability and has scored one hell of a lot of good goals for us, including in IMPORTANT CL games. Another myth blown out of the water. Like Kane he has been overplayed because Levy refuses to buy decent back-ups, hence tires as the season draws on.

Son has been awful for a few months now. However, with his Far East appeal you can bet your botttom dollar Levy will always shoehorn him into the team. The appalling decision to put fans in the uppers while having big sponsor logo’s ground level shows this man will do anything for $, and Sonny starting in games = $.

I have never subscribed to the view that Son is a world class player. A very good player, but inconsistent and who fails to turn up in big games.
From a purely commercial point of view, given his age and lack of desire to sign a new contract, it is time to sell him. I have always liked him as he appears to be a good egg but like many a good player at Spurs, he has realised, somewhat late, that he will never win anything meaningful at Spurs under the incompetence of the anal leadership of the megalomaniac Levy. As much as I respect Harry Kane, he could be accused of being somewhat slow to realise that under the auspices of Enic’s ownership and the unsuccessful micro management of Levy that he would never win anything at Spurs. He was clearly seduced into thinking , as did many contributors on this site, including our estimable host, Mr Hotspur, that Mourinho would bring success to the club. I hold no brief for Mourinho, whom I suspect is beyond his sell by date but there has been a general naivety amongst the fans that by employing a serial winner that he would bring trophies to our club. He was employed on £15 mill a year to paper over the cracks of an ageing and mentally tired squad without spending significant funds. Even the dimwit Levy must have realise that substantial investment was needed in the squad having been spoilt by Poch’s success in the initial years of his management, but instead of backing the manager , Levy bottled it and decided not to spend any money for two transfer windows and now we see the consequences. I hate to think what it will cost us to replenish the team and we are well behind our rivals. It is astonishing to conclude that every time we have had a good team, Levy has not only failed to boost the squad with meaningful reinforcements but has sold our best players. Now Levy is in a serious bind and I suspect he does not know what to do. We have a substantial debt burden which needs to be serviced, and I do not know whether it is on fixed terms or subject to interest rate rises, despite the Levy apologists claiming there is no problem servicing the loans, and let us not forget the BoE who must be delighted to be paying the Welsh golfer’s wages of £350,000 per week. Which serious manager would want to work for Levy who is a busted flush? I have read the normal comments as to who wouldn’t want to manage Spurs with their “world class facilities” but everyone can now see that that you cannot win with a chairman who buys the players he mistakenly identifies as a good investment whilst ignoring the players that the manager has identified to win titles. The only people who would work for Levy are out of work managers like Benitez or Eddie Howe or unproven younger managers like Potter. I note that Allegri, according to press reports, has counted himself despite being out of work for several seasons. To summarise. the jig is up for Levy. The mistaken aura of the hard headed businessman with an unimpeachable record of pulling rabbits out of the hat in the transfer market has been exposed aa a complete myth. i wish I could be more optimistic about our future, but I only see further heartbreak and disillusionment for the Spurs fans whilst the anally retentive Levy continues to rule the roost.

He’s been terrible lately, yet Lucas and Bergwijn barely get a look in. They may not perform much better but at present Son, amongst others, are not being selected on merit.
Son is possibly the worst pressing forward in the world. Every time he goes to tackle it looks half hearted and obvious what he is going to do, so much so that he slides completely misses the player and takes himself out of position giving simeone a free run at Reguilon who is fairly poor defensively.
I love Son when he’s on song but that hasn’t been the case for months. Spurs can’t have Kane, Son and Bale as an attacking triumvirate as they offer so little pressing. That’s precisely why Mourinho favored Bergwijn and Lucas as they are more industrious but offer less goal threat.

Watching Liverpool recently has shown a team does not need the best defence. Trent is not great defensively but he almost plays as a winger. Reguilon could perform that role and he’s similarly good at crossing. The pressing needs to come from the front so the defence are not under constant pressure. Probably explains why we can beat bang avearage sides but not anyone with an ounce of intensity.

A few things to consider. First and foremost our top players let us down on the big occasions. Nobody showed up in champs league final, nobody showed up in the cup final and we just lost the plot after losing to Liverpool in December after being top of the league! We had chances to win trophies 🏆 Kane didn’t step up in those moments, he wasn’t fit on both occasions and forced the coach to play Him when he should have put the team first. Moura should have started the champs league final as he wasn’t fit and Kane shouldn’t have started the cup final unfit! Levy didn’t invest at the right time when Poch was so close to having a special team and instead had to settle for less talented replacements in exchange for profit which brought his demise. The clear out should have happened “under Poch” soon after the champions league final defeat.That team went as far as they could go and nursed a full season hangover over that champs league defeat! It was a really good 5 year project with Poch full of excitement and we needed to rebuild while players were still keen to come to Spurs under Poch. What needs to happen now is a clear out and a young team with an attack minded coach. We will have plenty of money to buy the best young talent. Get young fearless players who have proven themselves in the Prem this season from Villa & Leeds and get Andersen from Fulham! Get all our young talent back from loans and restart this! Sell Son and use the money on younger talent, there are plenty of young talented fast paced attackers out there who can only get better under a talented attack minded coach. The coach must be lined up behind the scenes! Would anyone object to Joachim Low and Klinsmann arriving together? Low is done with German team after Euro’s and has worked with Jurgen.

Sounds about right. We have soon forgotten that Harry wasn’t fit for the CL final & must take some responsibility but he won’t. Unless he STFU, he’ll be at hated as Judas.

The hell? Are you really in any way comparing the best striker we’ve had in ages, an academy product who’s stayed on under the hopeless leadership of Levy just because he loves it here, to Judas?

If he won’t stop moaning before he has even spoke to Levy, he loses my respect. Not a fair comparison but it’s a slippery slope.

With all due respect to Sonny, Kane leaving was always going to be a much bigger story.

At the same time, losing both in one window is an utterly frightening prospect. But hey, the top dogs in charge of succession management had to know Sonny was refusing to extend his contract for the best part of two years, so they must have thought of a ready-to-go top-class alternative.

…right?

He always seems to have a good run and then fizzles out a bit, I’ll give you that. This season, that inconsistency has brought us 22 goals and 17 assists in all competitions (3,904 minutes). Just a bit of attacking midfielder comparison:

Stevie B (1 goal and 7 assists; 1,770 minutes)
Lamela (4 goals and 1 assist; 1,418 minutes)
Moura (9 goals, 8 assists; 2,532 minutes)
Dele (3 goals, 5 assists; 1,287 minutes)
Bale (14 goals, 3 assists; 1,645 minutes)

Only Bale and Moura are anywhere near his numbers, but Bale is highly unreliable and Lucas is great, but can’t buy a game under Mason, while Dele and Winks can – wrong nationality perhaps?

Losing Son would be very, very painful, especially given that our other attacking midfielders simply do not contribute enough at all.

I’m glad omebody is speaking sense re Son. He is world class. Every player has little dips throughout the season . If he was at City hed get regular rests and most likely be awesome everytime he played.

I cannot believe the moronic nature of some of these comments. 😡🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️ Son is absolutely world class and most top teams would jump at the chance to sign him.

The best players work well in good systems and take maximum advantage of that which is what Kane and Son have done previously. The fact that Son’s form has dropped off is more to do with the malaise within the team and the club than the person.

Those who are moaning about his form would do well to realise that there aren’t many replacements for what he does and if there are it will cost a pretty penny, and we know what Scooge McLevy will do in those circumstances.

Thank goodness for some sense. Our two class players are worked like cart horses. Would other top teams do that. No wonder they have injuries or dips. F*** off Levy.
