Hard to feel sorry for Kane when he decided to give up his life in England, leave a fanbase who adored him and squander his chance of being recognised as the greatest goalscorer in Premier League history just so he could go and stat pad a meaningless trophy in Germany. Turns out it isn’t that easy either.

Has there ever been such a talented footballer with such a non-existent killer instinct when it matters?

It proves how rare a quality it really is to have both I guess and why those who did possess both down the decades can easily be rattled off by even casual football fans.

It'd be fantastic to see Leverkusen win the league haven't never won it.

Funny that Bayern are in turmoil too

He made his choice, he uprooted his family, he walked away from his boyhood club (whose fans adored him), all so he could waltz to what he (and everyone else) must've thought would be an easy title just so he could tick a box that said he'd won something. There's definitely a bit of schadenfreude in seeing it all come tumbling down.

I don't know how much truth there was in that Tuchel to Tottenham story at end of last season.

Probably nonsense.

But if Levy and Munn considered him and passed then fair play because it would have been very easy to have gone for a big coach who is perceived to play good football.

For some reason he doesn't have a reputation like Conte or Jose, maybe cause he can play quote attacking but at PSG and Chelsea I'd describe them as functional but quite boring.

Still find it absurd they fired Nagelsmann who hadnt really put a foot wrong and was delivering good football for someone who falls out with the board and doesn't play as exciting football.

From what I remember he was falling out with players and board members. Tho I think Tuchel becoming available made them panic.

I think nagelsmann was feeding stories to his mrs who works in the media and stories about some of the players were leaking out and they didnt back him.

add to that i think tuchel was using talks with us to force bayerns hand. I dont think it was a case of us backing away, more tuchel played us a bit. (Which was a good thing imo as tuchel was in no way shape or form the right fit)

Sometimes I wonder if Munich was really a club that Kane was chomping at the bit to move to or was it a move of convenience for him.
Probably not.

I imagine he had his heart set on City. Them signing Haaland ended it.

Think anywhere else in PL would have come with too much risk.

United = Not really closer to challenging than us.

Chelsea Arsenal = Risks his legacy.

Madrid and Barcelona werent in for him.

So Bayern were easily the standout option available. Especially as he wanted trophies

He’s been stitched up by his brother! Kane has millions…imo the move was purely about making surely Charlie was ok. Both probably thought they would piss the bundesiga. Backfired. Kane can do one. Hes lost his legend status imo
