He will never get the world wide recognition because he is English, he looks like a Spitfire pilot, and he is just plain tidy on the ball he doesn't do anything more than needs to be done. His recent "Midfeild" performances reminds me on a certain Spaniard but I would get roasted if I said anymore.

Watched the full game again and I'm speechless about Harry, vision, weight of pass, awareness I wouldn't swap him for anyone right now. False 9 at its very best!
There were some who claimed he could not play in this United team and would disrupt our style of play. He always was a complete striker. Glad he is reminding people that he is a special player

Never thought I'd see this as a video title, but credit where it's due. Kane has an excellent pass on him.

Fergie would have absolutely adored Kane, have to think he would have been the main target, the type of all round striker who presents so many options, and allows other to shine while also being a superb finisher and leader of a line.

Developing his all round game to help maximize the talents of others, love strikers who can do that.

Good post. I've often thought it somewhat alarming how easily people have historically dismissed Kane from that elite tier because of his appearance and football aesthetics. Essentially, he went underappreciated for many years just because he looks a bit gangly and awkward with a ball at his feet.

I think the biggest reason he's underappreciated is because he chose to stay at Spurs.

If he wants to be recognised as the best in the world, he’ll need to elevate Spurs to European Champions, win a Premier League or join a club that’s capable of doing it.

I can’t see that happening.

He’s a phenomenal player though. To think when he was on loan at Leicester we played him centre mid and right wing seems crazy now.

Yeah, true enough. Since I'm a big fan of Kane and have no loyalty to any club, I'd love to see him go and tackle a new challenge at a serious contender. But I also respect his loyalty, which seems almost anachronistic in this day and age. And there's no doubt that if he does drag Spurs to major honours, he'll be held in far greater esteem than if he, say, went to City as Aguero's replacement and helped them dominate the league.

Good post. Pretty much agree with all of it. I'd never rule Kane out of dragging Spurs almost singlehandedly to some kind of silverware, but it would be unlikely to be a PL or CL title without a better team around him.
