Agreed, its a line thrown to make Spurs fans feel better, the times where a WC winning mentality is required, he shy's away from it. Spurs going for title, Spurs CL final, England WC Semis, England Euros final, England WC quarter, Harry Kane has failed on every occasion.I totally agree, this is my argument around him. You look at the raw stats and you can't argue with it. He's a fantastic player. He's got fantastic ability as a playmaker too, albeit he can be a bit cumbersome. But when it comes to delivering silverware? Harry Kane gets a lot of excuses made for him because of his team but he's had some opportunities for Spurs and England and he usually under delivers.
People argue he's done as much as he can in those sides, but has he? What makes our current team substantially closer to winning a major trophy than England or Spurs under Poch? I would argue we are at a similar level. We are not the favourites for any competition we enter. So that means when we sign Harry Kane and put him on a huge contract into his 30s we're saying we are buying you to get us over the line. Can he actually do that or will he fold like a pack of cards?
He's a risk in my eyes. Not to fail to score goals as he guarantees that, but that he'll be a difference maker. I wouldn't be surprised if we play towards Kane's strengths, he scores 30 goals and we get no closer to winning.
He is a terrific striker, gets loads of goals, yet in the big moments, he is nowhere to be seen. I actually do think Harry Kane at 30 is a risk too big to take, with injuries, pace, its all too much. I would rather us stay clear, especially if he has that complacent mentality.
Ten Hag is building the mentality of winners, we dont need someone to come spoil that. Ronaldo scored loads of goals yet the team players worse.
Ten Hag needs a ST who will press, no point signing Kane when he can barely jog of the ball.
