I know Kane has always been a big NFL fan. But I do wonder if he has been “encouraged” by the club to push the subject. Quite handy for Levy that our star striker and England captain is plastered all over social media with his Super Bowl holiday snaps. I’ve no doubt he was interviewed by US broadcasters and asked about the stadium and a London franchise. Maybe I’m to cynical and it’s just a lovely coincidence.
No. He is a huge NFL fan. Wants to end his career in NFL as a specialist kicker.

Agreed. It’s amazing just how much the mental part of the game, preparation and focus is often what separates the good from the great. Michael Jordan used to talk a lot about the difference between him and others from his era. He didn’t think he was naturally more talented than the best of his peers, but his work rate and determination was better than anyone else. Kobe Bryant had a very similar approach and was arguably blessed with more natural talent that Mike.
This is why Harry is so unique. I don’t think there is another player in the league who works harder than him, or is more determined. And like Brady, he will always play with a chip on his shoulder. Brady was overlooked. Nearly 180 players were picked before him in the draft. Harry was loaned out time and again. No one thought he’d be anything special at the highest level. And there are still people out there who have doubts. And that drives him even more.
We are truly blessed to have him. And I believe that unless something were to go terribly pear shaped, that like Brady, he will stay with the team that selected him for his entire career. I just hope he gets the opportunity to lift the silverware he undoubtedly deserves. For him, winning the title with us, would be far more meaningful than joining a team of expensively assembled mercenaries and essentially cutting a corner to pick up a few trophies.
Fingers crossed we can help him as much as he helps us. Seeing him lift the PL title trophy would be a dream for all of us... and him.

Lets be honest he's a lucky player. A 5 season wonder who isn't getting any better and is beginning to be found out. Cannot tie Sergio Agüero or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's boots

He's not quick enough, not strong enough, not skillful enough. To top it off he also spits when he talks. Will never beat Greaves record let alone Shearers and will never win the league with Tottenham


Hopefully he reads this.....

Cant see him getting back into this side. I think the team has outgrown him

Hope he reads this.......

The best thing about how well we've done without our best player is that we don't have to rush him back.Hopefully after a good rest he'll be back to his very best and might even lead us to something special this season (in our new home!!!!)

The thing is, last time he had a reasonably lengthy spell on the sidelines, didn't similar happen & we actually sort of upped our performances and still won our games when everyone not associated with THFC said we'd crumble without him?

We've got so much fucking heart & desire in this squad. So so proud to be a Spurs fan these days. COYS
