Were you there or watching a stream? I only ask because some of our passing in the final third yesterday was terrible but didn’t look quite so bad later on tv. It’s all about viewing angles I guess.There were also a couple of occasions where he was played the ball and just failed to react or move to receive it. Not sure if it’s a mental thing or a physical thing and wanted to see some stats on his running and if his numbers are in decline etc.
This is dangerous territory though as you aren’t allowed to say much about Kane.
Messi just walks about the place too until he gets the ball.I love Kane, as we all do, and he’s clearly still got the killer instinct. I just think he’s shattered. Mourinho won’t have the intense training regime that Pochettino preferred, so I think we’ll see his alertness picking up as time goes on.
One thing I would say is that ‘beast-mode Kane’ is a bit of a myth. Even in his first few seasons he would mostly wander about at a low pace. There were just brief periods in games where he would step up another level. He was never a ‘full-throttle’ player.
He’s not making the high-paced onslaughts that he’d occasionally do anymore, but I really think that’s a combination of overtraining and age.
looking down from the park lane was surprised to see him sprinting back to our own penalty box when Bournemouth were on the attack MUCH faster than other spurs players. Desperate to stop them scoring. Good to see him so committed, not so good to see Bournemouth passing around us so well.Kane was excellent yesterday. Maybe watching on a stream gave a false impression.
Lay off him? I haven't criticised him at all.Messi just walks about the place too until he gets the ball.
Beast mode Kane is not a myth either. It did happen. It might happen again or it might not. The guy scored more goals in a year than Ronaldo and Messi in 2017.
People need to watch Kane a lot more closely. Hes more than just a goal scorer now compared to 2 seasons ago when he was scoring 8 hatricks.
Hes adapted his game. Hes creating chances now too. The only difference is we aren't quite as good as we were back then. So its not his fault we don't create more chances for him to score.
We lost Walker and suffered mad amount of injuries to Dier, Wanyama, Dembele. The core of our midfield. This will also have affected our system and how we play.
Lay off the guy. Hes the captain now. He's the leader and he's showing it too
At least half of their shots were long range speculative efforts thoughThe stats showed Bournemouth had more attempts and shots on goal than we did and against better sides we won't get away with it, that won't be lost on Jose who will get that sorted eventually but from an attacking perspective I'm loving watching us again.
Agree I'm confident we have a manager in place to sort it out so not an issue for too long but already there has been a difference and I'm enjoying watching us againAt least half of their shots were long range speculative efforts though
If you look at the expected goals it shows a better picture 2.9 v 1.1
Agree with your point though that we cant keep getting away with letting the opposition back in it and I'm sure Jose will sort it out

Lost count of the number of times Son and Dele passed the ball straight past Kane into touch. Son in particular had a rare off day, where things just didn’t quite come off.
Aurier is playing almost like a winger,hanging around central on the right flank, Sanchez covering,Sissoko covering,Lots of movement all around and never seen so many through ballsJust watched goals on Sunday and the set up for 2nd and 3rd goal was actually 325. Aurier is as high as Son. The first goal Kane is CM. There’s certainly a lot of thought going into this.
