That's what I was thinking too. If they couldn't beat Monaco at home even with him in the line-up, they'll be hard pressed to get out of what initially seemed a very favorable group for them.I suppose this just guarantees Rooney a definite place in the England starting 11. And Spurs will struggle a lot without him. By the time he comes back they'll probably be out of the champions league.
It's two months - while it may affect Spurs' form, I don't think it will have any affect on him as a player. Injuries happen.damn. Real shame for him and the PL in general. Catastrophic for Spurs ... will cost them many points.
For the sake of the game, hope he comes back very strong.
I think it is a blessing in disguise for Spurs personally. Poch might as well have to play different set up and it might good for spurs in the long run. Every time I see them play it seems like they don't have a plan B and 1 of the reason is due to the fact that Kane is not going to be substituted out. As for England, they are fecked up no matter who they have so that's it.I suppose this just guarantees Rooney a definite place in the England starting 11. And Spurs will struggle a lot without him. By the time he comes back they'll probably be out of the champions league.
Why? He's been brilliant. Buying goals is pretty much the hardest task a manager has. So few available replacements.If I were the boss of Tottenham, I would have sold him last summer for a crazy amount and tried to make smart acquisitions.
Curious to see if Kane will confirm this season.
They will play away all the games as I don't think the Wembley stadium brings luck.If he is out for 2 months then he will miss CL group stage. They have already lost home game so qualification is even more difficult.
Last time a club played CL games at wembley they were out in group stages. Hopefully history repeats.They will play away all the games as I don't think the Wembley stadium brings luck.
Did anyone listen to Talksport yesterday? Adrian Durham and Ray Wilkins were discussing Harry Kane and his contract situation. I believe it has 2 years to run but the issue is he is earning (only) £60,000 per week. Now consider how important he is to Spurs and the fact that Sissoko is allegedly earning nearly £100,000 per week. Jamie Vardy is even in 3 figures since his new contract was agreed. Now I don't know how much input Pochettino has had in to the situation but I think Ray Wilkins hit the nail on the head last night. It seems that Kane is being punished for coming through the youth system and not coming in to Spurs as a blockbuster signing. They should take Leicester's example and up his wages, although granted Vardy did help Leicester win the League.
What the Spurs board are missing is if Kane sits out the remainder of his contract and walks away, or even leaves before then (his value is only going to go down as it runs out) they will still have to replace him. If Spurs want to stay at the top end of the League and even challenge to win it, they need a 25 goal a season striker and that's going to cost them say £30 million minimum. And anyone who costs that much is going to demand wages I would say comfortably in to 3 figures £K per week. So let's say they up Kane's wages to £100,000 per week it's still 300 weeks before they've paid out the £30 million a new player would cost.
What do the rest of you think about the Kane situation? Am I looking at it in a too simple way? Is he not as good as he's been hyped up to be?
