Tottenham Have Found The Striker They Have Been Searching For…

By on August 3, 2011

Harry Edward Kane to be precise and whilst he won’t be our new manager, he has a very good chance of being a super star for us in the very near future.

The 6ft, just turned 18 year old forward from Walthamstow has all the attributes of the first class striker that we are dying out for. He is big and strong, can hold his own, has speed and certainly knows where the goal is. He is also intelligent and can drop a bit deeper and link up the play as well. I know from people who have seen him playing live (Stuart being one of them) that he is in the Wayne Rooney/Robbie Keane mould. This kid has scored goals at whatever level he has played.

Kane’s career started in the Tottenham youth system in 2008. He made 22 appearances for Tottenham U18s during the 2009–2010 season, scoring 18 goals.He was also named on the first-team bench on two occasions but didn’t get onto the pitch. He has played for the England Under17′s (3 appearances, 2 goals) and Under 19′s (5 appearances, 6 goals) already.

In the January transfer window he went on loan to League 1 side Leyton Orient and showed in the 18 appearances for them (9 starts and 9 substitute) just how classy he is. Many O’s fans were trying to get Barry Hearn to sign him permanently or get him back on loan for the upcoming campaign, as they hold him in such high regard. He scored 5 goals for them during his loan period.

Unfortunately for the Orient fans, Spurs hold him in a very high regard as well, as his biography on the official website says:

“Playing just behind a central striker, Harry made a huge impact during his first full season in our Academy, establishing himself as one of the most highly-rated young players at the club.”

Spurs’ Under-18 coach Alex Inglethorpe also stated on the club’s website after Harry got called up for England duty:

“It’s fantastic for the academy and Harry that he’s been recognised in this way. He’s a lovely lad, a terrific young player with a great work ethic and one who will keep on improving.”

Apparently he is also renowned for being a dead ball specialist as well and scored a fair few goals last season from them. Another string to the young man’s bow as he fights his way up the footballing ladder.

He has taken a very active part in our pre-season preparations, with playing, scoring and impressing at both Barnet and MK Dons as well as featuring in the match at Leyton Orient. They were all for a Spurs XI side.

Is Harry Kane ready for first team duties? Well it would be a massive risk but other 18 year old have done it in recent times and prospered. Will Spurs do it? Most certainly not. Mr Redknapp is not the sort to bring through young talent and take risks as he thinks too much of his reputation. I hope he gets a lot of opportunities this season but these will probably be mainly in the cups unless we get a whole host of injuries.

One thing for sure though, our gangster sounding striker is certainly a gem and what with Danny Rose, Kyle Walker, Tom Carroll and Andros Townsend the future is rosey at the Lane.

    OH TEDDY TEDDY ! I RECKON THIS IS OUR NEXT HOMEGROWN STAR! GREAT SCORING ABILITY AT ALL THE LEVELS HE’S PLAYED AT CANT ASK FOR MORE REALLY.

    GET IN LLORENTE 20M; BUY NILMAR 15M OR ZARATE (PLAYERS THAT ARE SAID TO BE OBTAINABLE – LEST NOT WASTE ANYMORE TIME ON PLAYERS WITH HUGE WAGE DEMANDS ETC)

    KEEP PAVLYUCHENKO (GIVE TILL JAN TO IMPRESS THEN GET DAMAIO IN IF POSS)

    SELL DEFOE; CROUCH; KEANE

    HAVE HARRY KANE AND SOULEYMANE COULIBAYE AS OUR 4TH & 5TH STRIKERS AROUND TE FIRST TEAM BUT ULTIMATELY GETTING THE MOST GAME TIME IN CUPS AND EUROPE.

    We all know that he’ll probably end up going to another club as, as you rightly say, Redknapp will not give someone like him a chance. All I have to say is Rooney, Owen, Fowler – all given a chance and all blossomed. Redknapp needs to leave his ego back with Sandra at Sandbanks and take a risk

      Yeah Redknapp never gives young players a chance does he…..step forward Sandro, Frank Lampard, Rio Ferdinand, Joe Cole and Jermain Defoe! Same old anti-Harry dross. Change the record!!

      Have you ever actually seen Kane play? He’s good, yes.. but to compare him to the likes of Rooney and Owen when they broke into the top flight is ridiculous.. he’s nowhere near that level of ability!

    I watched him play at Barnet and he is certainly a very impressive prospect and a good striker of a dead ball. However, he is raw and young. He is, IMHO, not remotely ready for the Premiership. If he is gently and gradually brought along he will be a big star for us.
    P.S. Watch out for a lad from Australia called Luanga who played in the same game. I don’t think he gave the ball away once in the entire game.

    I totally agree about Redshnapps.he has always been a collector of famous name players at what ever club he has been at.I have supported Spurs for 55years and honestly believe he has the biggest ego of any manager we’ve ever had.

    Redknapp isn’t known for giving youth a chance. Ur havin a laugh! His west ham team was full of youth players, all of whom have been successful. Plus bringin rose into the first team and allowing bale to show his talent. MUG

    Matty Boy you don’t get good team spirit flogging Big Crouchy and Defoe in a both will score. Why cant our fans do there home work Anelka 6 goals Drogba 11 Bent 17 shite cant score sold by Spurs fans Berbatov 21 three hatricks Teves 21 and one of his team failed a drug test for energy drugs i warned the FA and my fellow fans was being used . I will warn you one more time Aguero wont have a min to score and will get dirty tackles trying from manic energised players. Crouch Defoe and Keane scored in International games and Europe in the slower well policed Ufa and Fifa the prem is awash with false tempo and full of bad tackles and shocks.

    Sorry for mistakes lads my eyes are bleary with eye drops used for inflammation caused by my spine disease. But my message is true we could be selling good players who suffered from cheats new strikers will face the same High Tempo and cost more.
