You would have thought this year’s unbeaten champions will be good again, especially retaining Alonso.
I did not say I was certain Bayern will win it - but, I am confident Leverkusen won't go undefeated, and I think Bayern have the resources to get back on top.

I don't think keeping Alonso changes that.

The thing with Harry is he's just gone and walked it in the Bundesliga in his first season. After years of doing it in the best league in the world with us.

He's also done it by always being in an inferior team. Imagine if he played at PSG, or at the front of an epic Barca team, how many goals/assists could he have got.

No doubt in my mind, he's the best striker in the world and has been for a while.

Not only that he's been an absoloute professional all his career. Legend in my book trophies or no trophies.

I also think he has a good few years left in him, could still be playing top level in 5 years.

But its no sure thing is it? Like it has been for years.

Typical for Harry, he moves for guaranteed trophies just when its become truly competitive.

The look on Neville’s face was annoying. Harry has scored more goals than any other player in record time as well, and is our top scorer at world cups, 2nd top scorer ever in the PL and would have topped shearer in my opinion. He will also most likely finish his career as Englands most capped player and most capped as captain of our country.

Yet so many people don’t seem to rate him, I just don’t get it. If England win the Euros there is simply no debate, the greatest ever and by some margin.

Because what people who don't follow Spurs will remember him for is a penalty miss against France and him never scoring in a final.

He can rectify all of that this summer, and then there is absolutely no debate at all.

If scoring in a final is the criteria then Luke Shaw must be the greatest England player since 66!

He shouldn't have to rectify it but even if we do win the Euros the goalposts will move again with those same people.

We here all know how good he is. His teammates know how good he is. The opposition players and managers know how good he is. Some just refuse to acknowledge it regardless.

They'll see Munich in 3rd and the loss to Madrid in the CL semis and think it's all because of Kane and his Spursiness, when in reality he had a quality individual season. His first not at Tottenham in a new country where the first half of it he didn't have his family around him.

And that is following the season he became our all time record goalscorer. He is one of our greatest players and one of England's greatest players. Period.

They won't recognise him as such until after he retires.

Club bias is strong across all of football. It’s why we rate him so highly (plus we’ve seen much more of him while others only see his goals / penalties).

When other fans do watch his England performances they’re rarely as good as his club ones (combination of deep lying defences plus selfish teammates).

The shock from Neville when Rooney calls Kane “the best ever” is pure club bias as he puts Rooney ahead of H, simple as that.

Kane will be unlikely to win anything next season under Kompany imo.

I think Leverkeusen will clean up domestically again and no way Kompany can guide Bayern to a CL win so poor old Harry could really be wearing this curse for a long time.

I'm not putting one above the other; But to be fair to Rooney... he's an easy object of mockery, but he was an outstanding footballer. Top of the game from age of 16 until his legs finally ran out, accomplished absolutely everything a footballer could at club level.
