Waddle On Harry Kane “He wants proper medals, Premier League titles, Champions League titles”

By Harry Hotspur -

Chris Waddle understands what football is all about, of this, there is no doubt as he has played at the highest level, and the former Tottenham man will be all too aware of how frustrated the England captain will have become in North London.

After many years of developing himself and becoming the player that he always wanted to be, Kane is now at his peak and looking to be rewarded for all the hard miles he has put into his career. Despite all the full-colour brochure talk from ENIC, the rather dull reality is that the 27-year-old has won nothing of note and especially during this International break, be looking at his fellow England teammates, and asking himself what h he is doing at Spurs?

The voices defending Kane speak of his loyalty in a manner that almost suggests he has none of the normal aspirations that professional footballers have as if he is somehow ‘happy with his lot’ in Haringey.

The truth is, Harry timed his interview with Gary Neville specifically to let Levy know that his mind was made up and the final talks would be done and dusted when the tournament was over.

Chris Waddle, speaking exclusively to Ladbrokes on behalf of The Boy Hotspur at the launch of their European Championships 5-a-side Bet

“Realistically, Harry Kane probably wants that transfer to happen as soon as possible. There’s a new manager at Tottenham again, they haven’t signed anyone yet, they need to strengthen, in particular in defence. It’s a big job for Nuno Espirito Santo to go in and do, and Harry’s now thinking about himself, and his own career.

Harry’s never going to be short of money, so he’ll only move to improve his chances of adding to that trophy cabinet. He won’t want to look back in a few years at that cabinet and just see under-14s, under-15s, under-16s trophies, and school medals. He wants proper medals, Premier League titles, Champions League titles.

Unless Tottenham can convince him that they’re going to be challenging at the top end of those competitions in England and in Europe, I think Harry will leave.

Realistically, I only see Manchester City signing Kane. I don’t think anyone else can really afford him. Other clubs might be able to offer players as part of a swap deal, but that’s not what Tottenham wants.

We know Daniel Levy won’t be fighting to make things happen, he’ll be holding out for that £100m amount. Levy won’t be giving Kane away. He’s still got another three years on his contract. 

I don’t think Harry Kane is the sort of lad who downs tools if he doesn’t get his move. For me personally, it’s only Man City who can afford him. Manchester United made their move for Jadon Sancho, so to ship out another £100m on Kane, that would be a lot of money for that club to spend.

Man City haven’t really got a number nine now Sergio Aguero’s gone; yes they’ve got Gabriel Jesus, but he doesn’t really get them the number of goals they want, and I could just see Kane fitting in with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Phil Foden and the rest of that team. I could see him fitting in really well up there.”

Such a shame that we can’t even find ourselves in the running for players like Waddle, Gazza and Lineker now.
What part of Spurs are not a big attraction in London don’t people understand these days.?

The great ENIC myth rolls on, as they used to say in Newcastle
“You shout down a coal mine and a ready made footballing legend comes out to greet you”

At Spurs you shout in an Aldi and Sanchez puts down his fork lift keys and has a few years giving it his best.

I was quite stunned last Saturday when I saw a little kid in a Spurs shirt at our local cricket club in Olton, Solihull; can’t remember when I last saw that around here. Despite that, Enic are confirming us as a club from the past, almost totally irrelevant in today’s football; we’re becoming a Villa, a Newcastle etc where the occasional league cup (or lower tier Euro comps) is all we have to look forward to. Newcastle, in fact, haven’t won anything other than second division titles in over half a century or a major domestic trophy in 66 years.

If Kane is the talisman then why didnt he turn up when he was most needed. No good complaining he didnt win a championship when he went absent in two cup finals and the end of season when Leicester won. I seem to remember that Vardy was on fire in the big games..

The problem there is yes Kane is our tailsman but if he has a quiet game no one is there to get us over the line. Man City have at least 6 match winners on the pitch and Liverpool have 4. We over achieved under Poch and our lunatic chairman still believes we have a strong squad, which is now really dated. We need heavy investment but as many here have said that will not happen under our current ownership. Sad but true!

Exactly right mate… Three cup finals though now, he failed to show or score in any.

What chance would we have of signing a Waddle, Lineker or Gazza these days? We are a smaller club now under Enic than we were 30 years ago.

Smaller club than we were 30 years ago really, how many C/L finals did we reach then and how many top finishes four did we have

Pleat once and Venables nearly ???? these are different times far more money orientated and many more players in the game, we were going skint under Irving Scholar who did he buy Gazza, Waddle Lineker ETC

You’re right I forgot about parading our runners up medals around north london in the open top bus. We had plenty of top 4 finishes when top 4 meant diddly squat.

Exactly. Anyone who struggles with this do the ENIC 20 vs prevoius 20 years test. A simple test that reveals the con.

Two FA Cups (before it became somewhat diminished in stature) and a UEFA Cup (when only the champions played in the European Cup) in the early 80’s and more trophies than anyone other than Liverpool between 1960 and 1984 and three third places, incidentally, between 1985 and 1990 yet, Levy apologists insist on referring to a comparatively short period when we weren’t winning (and, even then, we won a full stature FA Cup in 1991) as some kind of vindication for Enic and their trophy tally of one (hugely diminished) league cup in 20 years.

Yes, there are much wealthier clubs around now, sadly, but we have been eclipsed by LEICESTER CITY who have given their fans something tangible to celebrate. But, hey, we can bask in the reflected glory of our ludicrously expensive stadium, a bigger white elephant it would be hard to imagine, while the opportunity for some REAL GLORY on the pitch passed us by.

The new stadium, of course, was an additional asset on the property portfolio, principally there to further enrich the owners personally while the fans, after years of failure, endured some near misses that might so easily have been turned into real success if the owners had actually given a damn about football and winning things rather than about themselves, already fabulously rich.

I am not a Levy apologist, I simply see the facts not what i want to see, we very nearly went skint in the 80`s as you well know
and times change and to push on we need new owners for sure

Reading many message boards it does appear that the owners have reached the end of their journey. I do not believe they will ever be tolerated anymore. Time has come for them to make a hasty retreat and pass the baton onto a new custodian. They have made they money (umpteem times) so do the decent thing and give the club back to the supporters and disappear into the sunset.

I am amazed that it’s taken him so long to see through the charade that Levy continues to perpetrate on the fans. I imagine that the sacking of Mourinho was the catalyst for Kane to make up his mind when he realised that Levy didn’t care about silverware but only about taking the optimum moment to sack a serial winner to save redundancy money. We will not win anything whilst Enic and Levy continue to control and manage the club, so we better get used to it.

Anybody who wants an obviously unhappy Kane to stay and play for Spurs rather than deservedly follow his dreams and win trophies after being lied to by enic and co for his entire career is a selfish c*nt.
