Kane is arguably playing with better players for England than Spurs against worst opposition. It would be slightly weird if he wasn’t scoring more for England.

Once Harry is finished for England, people will laugh whenever anyone suggests comparing his scoring record against Shearer’s on the international stage. Fvck, he’s still got 16 games to reach Shearer’s total caps. Once he hits 60 caps the comparisons will have moved beyond Shearer and on to Owen’s record I suspect.
he’ll have eclipsed owen by then too, it’ll be Greaves we’re comparing him too by then imho. Which is incredible!

Kane is performing very well for England these days, that's the real story, regardless of opponents, team mates or whether it was harder in the 90s (which it wasn't unless you played against Norway). Kane is in his peak.

"Harry Kane has been involved in 15 goals in his past six international appearances for England (10 goals, five assists), scoring and assisting against Kosovo."

I didn't realise that no other player has ever scored in every Euro qualifier. I thought the stat only covered England. Terrific achievement then!

So that's now Kane and Son being linked with moving on in the summer due to the 'glass ceiling' we were supposed to have smashed this year (CL Final, Ndombele signing, New Stadium). Poch seemingly on the brink too (although that is understandable it's still sad).

I thought I'd never feel more disengaged with the club and football than during the Sherwood era but if all that comes to pass I think I'll be there.

Where's the reaction for "it's sad and I don't like it and I don't even necessarily agree but I get where you're coming from and empathise with your position"?

Judging by Val and Trix’s ITK it appears that reading through the lines that it must have been Harry who’s loss of faith really set in the squads lack of faith in Poch.

Harry is spurs through and through and he has looked a shadow of the player that he is. This is evident with his performances recently for England.

I really don’t have anything else to say and I doubt we’ll get any elaboration until one of these two write a(nother) book. But just thought I’d start a dialogue.

Harry is the leader in the dressing room and out on the pitch. He will be the 'go to' guy for any player-manager problems. If Kane puts these feelings forwards to Poch and Poch refuses to see issues or just tells him to get on with it, he'll have lost him.

Kane is also tactically tuned as well I think so he'll see when stuff is not working and if his manager is persisting with it he's going to see that.

Telling the media that he's going to bin off some players won't have helped as Kane is friends with them. Lastly, if Kane feels that Poch is dragging the team down he's not going to sit around and allow it. Either he makes noises to Levy or to his agent telling him it's time to move.

I think the decision to leave Lucas out made more of an impact behind closed doors than we know. Pro players at this level know when someone is winging it and I guess given a) Poch was generally super stringent on match fitness and b) Lucas was the reason we got to Madrid.....it must have been taken the wrong way.
