    It’ll be difficult to source a replacement then - and any available will be overpriced. Add into that any transfer involving Kane will be complex, and difficult to conclude in the short time available in January. I’d agree it’s likely any move will be next summer.

    Jan prices are always higher, so the Viagra is needed for how much Levy will fudge City.

    You just can't get the audience's these days...

    Also, wasn't the reception pretty mocking?

    Two weird things I will never be able to get my head around:

    How Harry and Charlie played this so badly. It seemed blindingly obvious from the beginning that Levy wasn’t going to sell unless an offer that met his value came in. He wasn’t going to be bullied around with talk of a gentleman’s agreement. They seemed to think that leaks, the Neville interview, the lack of returning to training would put pressure on Levy to sell, but it just made him more determined. This seemed obvious from the beginning…how did the Kanes not understand this and play their hand so badly, and why did they not get more certainty from City that they would make a serious bid before very nearly burning all of Harry’s bridges with us? Utterly bizarre.

    Secondly, some of the coverage around this has also just been straight weird. I heard Ornstein reporting that City feel ‘Spurs need to come to the table if they want to get the deal done’. Just a very weird reading of a situation where we clearly had no intention to sell. What was going on there?

    It really seems like Harry has been used as a pawn in a bit of City PR to help show the world they won’t be taken to the cleaners on prices going forward. And I bet they were probably happy to keep it going once the fixtures came out in the hope it would disrupt us for the first game. That didn’t work. I feel bad for Harry, he’s been stupid, he’s played this badly, he’s been used, and he now has some making up to do. Here’s hoping he does it with his performances.

    City are favoured by the press
    They love the way they are treated when they go up there

    Journos do favours for clubs so that they will keep getting Tit bits. Some of the ‘news’ was agents trying to ruffle Levy’s feathers. But they were amateur. If you’re going to use the press you need more acumen. Telling the world what you want to happen is not going to cut it. You need to be be devious!

    Some great points. The reporting one was absolutely bizarre. Made no sense.

    On the Kane’s, I wonder did they think that Harry was a GHod with the fans who understood, by and large, why he wanted to go. Levy’s stock had also plummeted in the last two years. Maybe they thought they couldn’t lose that PR battle and if they threw in “gentleman’s agreement”, that would override the inconvenient fact he has a 3 year contract. What Harry Kane and every footballer who is lucky enough to play for us need to realise is that even if we understand your reasons for wanting to leave, you never, ever disrespect our club by whoring yourself in the media and not turning up to train. It doesn’t matter who you are.

    What the Kanes also need to understand is you won’t bully Daniel Levy. Say what you like about him but when it comes to balls and negotiating, he’s the toughest in the business.

    I hope they realise what a complete mess they’ve made of this. I don’t think Harry’s a bad lad. I’ve lost a lot of time for him but he’s still a great player and, ordinarily, a great pro. But he’s represented by a complete amateur who has helped destroy Harry’s public image and destroyed any affection most of us had for him.

    That tweet of his today hasn’t restored any affection I personally had for him.
    I would love if “one of our own” song was never sung to him again.

    The fanbase that still damns Dele with the faint praise of “he’s better than Ozil” is unlikely to think up a new song. But I hope that as Kane carries on sullenly chasing the records and whacking the goals in, he’ll begin to hear something sinister in the chant that “he’s one of our own”. Something that both mocks and seals his contracted bonds to the club.

    His brother conceded defeat in this weeks ago. Saw him hammered at an event and he said the club were flat refusing to sell regardless. Emirates Marketing Project's largest offer for cash was only ever 75m too, it was never gonna happen apparently

    What do you think this is fking hide and seek
    Yep, thought he’d stay as Levy wouldn’t risk selling the crown jewel after a ropey last year with the fans.

    thank GHod this awful saga is done, at least for now.

    All those mother cluckers in the media, ex professionals…adamant he was rocking up at city!

    They can suck on my ding dang dingdong and then bugger off into the abyss.

    let’s get on it…make it past Pacos, make it 9 points against Watford, more signings to lift the mood.

    Go away Pep and city! You nasty old poopy heads!

    It could just be that in a couple of weeks, we might have new signings and 12 points from 4 games ... what will they say then?

    It's just amazing how they lost the PR war. And amazing that they both seemed to have no idea of leverage. 3 years on the contract, English player, in his prime, one of the best in the world, are we really going to sell to a competitor for less than he is worth?

    I was so against Levy like 2 months ago, but this situation has helped me back to seeing his benefits. But I also think there has been a miscalculation of where we are as a club right now. I'm sure Kane genuinely thought Levy would want to sell, that he would want the money, and his whole 'maybe if he can get 100 million for me maybe he'll want to do a deal' probably wasn't actually psychological mastery, I think the Kanes probably thought Levy would want the deal. After all, we sold Berbatov, we sold Carrick, Modric, Bale, Walker. We'd do it in the end, it's all just a ploy.

    But I'm really hoping that getting the stadium done means we are actually a club with a different standing in the game now. All clubs will lose players, even United, PSG etc. But we now have more strength, and I wonder if this is the source of the miscalculation. Part of the Kanes probably thinking that the last couple of seasons has sent us back to our 'rightful' place, but maybe they were the blip, and maybe we really are a top 4 side, minimum now.

    So yeah...maybe we are in a position to really refuse to sell unless a great bid comes in. I just don't get how City and the Kanes will have miscalculated it so badly. It didn't for one second look like we would waver, that we were feeling the pressure, and we came at it from a position of strength, and it made the Kanes look very, very stupid. Like they were playing a game from 2005, not for today.

    A proper, smart reading of the situation would have seen Kane say nothing publicly, but state behind the scenes he wants to go if a good bid comes in. He literally would have been in the exact same situation but without the making up to do with the fans. And he's now needlessly lost 2 games in order to to chase the goal scoring records. It's really good for us, as it shows we are a club serious about competing, not trying to get the money where we can. But for the Kanes....what a hilariously bad mis-reading of the situation, a hilariously bad miscalculation of the moving parts, I am genuinely shocked that one of the best players in the world would play his hand so terribly and have it turn out this way. Genuinely funny - you expect people in positions of power to know what they are doing, and in this instance, a couple of people clearly didn't know. It's always nice to be reminded that not even very successful people have it all figured out!
