Paul Merson is a card
apologies for the typo, this is the man Sky Sports employ as a pundit and the man rather mindlessly predicted that Harry Kane would struggle to score freely, now that José Mourinho had arrived at Tottenham. The Portuguese’s response was chilling, and in a presser shortly afterwards, proceeded to list all the successful strikers that had flourished under his care.
Now, the results are beginning to show themselves. Sure, the same group is modest, but surely only a fool would try to play down what are obvious signs of improvement.
For me, the chances created is where the magic lies. These make Harry a more rounded player, a more interesting player, a player who is playing more for the team, opposed to spending his entire time trying to grab a winning touch. Sonny has been an obvious beneficiary, and yet Kane’s shots and goals have also increased!
