Well done, Daniel, you played a blinder! What a brilliant strategy to overprice Kane and refuse to answer the phone to Manchester City, who was the only suitor on the horizon.
Now all you have is a rapidly depreciating asset. For those fans who are turning on Kane, we have no idea what the conversation or agreement between Levy and Kane entailed, and although we all realize that a gentlemen’s agreement is not worth the paper it’s written on, particularly in relation to Levy, Kane obviously feels aggrieved, and I know whom I would rather believe over this stand-off.
I would also like to point out to those fans deriding Kane’s performance yesterday that Son did not have a good game either. This is simply because the transition between defence and attack is ponderous, to put it politely.
Both Skipp and Hojbjerg are by definition defensive midfielders with little creative ability, and Skipp hardly made a forward pass. Coupled with Nuno’s inability to see that his tactics weren’t working and make earlier substitutions, we were always struggling to get the ball forward to Kane and Son.
West Ham was organized and tidy but no more than that, and yet we are unable to penetrate a side set-up like this as we are slow and lacking creativity in midfield.
Back to the drawing board after yet another Groundhog Day.
