    He's a better striker than Rooney.

    Its all good talking about Rooney(18?) at Euro 04, but he hasn't done anything since(on the international stage)

    Wayne was better technically than Kane is right now. I never get the feeling that Kane could make something happen on his own and that mostly he relies on service from his teammates but he's a great poacher in and around the box.

    Kane will score lots of goals but for me he isn't the best PL striker to play. When you think about great strikers you think of someone like prime Suarez who could turn the game himself and do everything.

    Yeah, this is when we have to ignore everything he did at Club level since 2004.

    I sometimes wonder if people even watch Kane with the shite thats written here, Kane needs service and cant make things happen on his own? maybe you should take time and watch his goals back you will be very surprised. if there is even a hint of a chance he is for sale we should be up spending whatever it takes to get him. hes far superier to Lukkaku in every aspect. as for the international stage how many players in world football are actually great on the international stage ? most of the time at the WC and euro's the big players are pretty poor,

    In 2009/11, were there any other better strikers bar maybe Villa?

    I agree.
    Yes he is. Kane may also though.

    So does Rooney's. Who doesn't remember Rooney as one of the best strikers in prem history? he is one of the leading scorers, assisted and title winners.

    I'll remember him as a great forward but not a top class finisher as a Shearer, Henry, Ruud or Aguero. Terrific player, but not the best striker. No harm in admitting that, a player of his quality, playing for a club that dominated the league should be scoring more goals than he managed. Mediocre performances in International tournaments also didn't help. You can disagree, that's what football is all about.

    Reducing Rooney to just goals is very wrong. I don't think anyone uses Bergkamp or Drogba's goal scoring record against them, they are much more than just a goal scoring attackers.

    Rooney's premier league end of season tally isnt even that impressive compared to past Prem strikers.

    Often played anywhere other than as a striker probably doesn't help that

    The Rooney talk is derailing this thread a little bit - both quite different players - Kane is an out and out striker - Rooney wasn't. Rooney was incredible and rightly will go down as a premier league and Utd all time great. Kane is 24 and has a long way to go in his career but on the basis of what he has been doing in the last few seasons he could easily also become an all time premiership and (I hope) a Spurs legend.

    I'm talking about pure strikers though. People bang on about Rooney being a brilliant Striker but that's just not right. He was one of the best Forwards, but a Striker is leading the line and he was never good at that, missed too many chances. Terrific forward in his prime though.

    Feel free to take this to a different thread and we'll discuss it there as @balaks is right, this is off topic.

    We won two trophies last season, we don’t need to prove ourselves in that department. When you sign for United, you know that trophies are natural just like with Real Madrid - even though blank seasons happen for sure. It most likely will happen this year for us as well, neither Spurs or United will have any chance in the Champions League. The FA Cup is up for grabs though, even though City will be huge favorites in any game.

    Better out and out striker. Possibly.
    Better player - not yet.

    Well if we are talking about pure strikers then Rooney's name shouldn't even be mentioned. Only time where he played as #9 was in 2009-10 season.

    Yeah, I'm done anyways,

    Which is why comparing him to Kane is daft.

    Kane has 7 goals in 8 games against Arsenal in the league which is impressive. It was interesting to read that detailed interview with him which portrayed Arsenal dropping him as a kid as being the defining moment in his life probably.

    He's always been out to prove that rejection wrong and Arsenal continue to suffer from it.

    He's 24 and already top 3 strikers in the world. Sell Lukaku for 50m and just give spurs the 150-200 and have a 20+ goal striker for the next 7/8 years.

    You must be crazy if you think Kane is not technically gifted or can't make his own goals. Kane's hold-up play, running between the lines and distraction of defenders is brilliant and probably unmatched by a PL striker in the last couple of years. Chelsea tried Costa, Morata, Giroud. Arsenal tried Lacazette, Sanchez, Giroud and even Welbeck. City tried Aguero, Iheanacho, Jesus. United(we) tried Zlatan,Lukaku, Rashford and even Martial in front. Liverpool have been very unlucky with number 9's. I guess Kane is the only striker with a totality in his game and if Real Madrid manage to rope him, it'll the best transfer in terms of goals and consistency.

    Juve have an awesome defensive record, if he smashes it, it will be another feather in his cap

    enough said.

    Kane doesn't register many assists for teammates, nor create many chances (26 in EPL this year, 41 last season) despite being a striker so his all round game is a bit exaggerated. Suarez scored 33 goals in his final season and created 87 chances for teamates. Thierry Henry was another one. Robin Van Persie scored 26 and created 71 chances. He is pretty much a sharp shooter, but there have been strikers who can score and create, mostly foreign, bar Rooney.

    Rooney in his youth days was pretty much like Mbappe. This guys must've missed him.

    Rooney was a complete monster. Kane is not at that level but if he continues with this till he's 28-29 he will be in that league

    In interests of fairness, Kane is yet to achieve anything at international level too

    I have never quite forgiven Ferguson for passing over on a guy called Aguero when he was at Atletico Madrid.

    head and shoulders above any striker in the EPL the last 5 years including Harry Kane!

    12 in 23 is pretty decent, England will never do anything at International level until they appoint a decent manager ad totally change the setup.

    Rooney's Euro 04 was probably as good as any performance from a teenager at a major international tournament (outside of Pele in 1958 and those types). Kane has yet to do anything remotely as impressive.

    On Totti...

    “He was a fantastic player and to spend your career at one club is an amazing achievement,” said the 24-year-old. “He achieved everything he wanted to at that club. He is a fantastic striker and, growing up, I would watch his goals. He had a brilliant career and, hopefully, I can have the same.”

    Honestly think he will give us 2 more seasons at least to see how were going as a club.

    "Undeservedly arrogant" followed by "back in their place" hmm. Maybe some would deem that a bit arrogant that for some reason we don't deserve to be where we are. Don't be so entitled.

    I agree but the other guy was talking about at the euros. We have yet to see Kane in that kind of tournament

    I really don’t get why some people are turning this into a Kane versus Rooney thread. Rooney had a brilliant career, Kane is just starting his trajectory

    Rooney went into how many tournaments off the back of an injury?...

    That said we should be in for Kane but financially it's complicated

    He is but if Spurs dont start winning trophies he'll be off somewhere else where he can win trophies and get a big pay raise.

    He's the no.1 striker in the world for the past year.

    I agree with the Lukaku/Kane part.

    Why in the world should we spend 150-200 on Kane when we have far more pressing matters in midfield and defense? It would be insane to spend that amount on one position for which you already have a more than decent player without first fixing our more clear weaknesses in other areas of the pitch.

    Fine he is one the best strikers in the world, but we already have one of the best midfielders and one of the best wingers to supplement our good striker. No need to throw money in that area, central midfield, right back and center back is where we need more quality urgently.
