    He strikes the ball so incredibly well.

    He was utter brick vs the goons. Offered nothing, along with pretty much the entire team. Thought that at least he would be up for it.

    I say he was hamstrung by a non-existent central midfield and a defense who didn't show up.

    What do you expect him to do when we spend the majority of the game defending / without the ball?

    Eriksen and Alli have more to answer for IMO, their inability to chop out Sissoko and Dier was alarming. Eriksen in particular was a ghost, most of them were mind you.

    But that does not go the other way? The defenders get all the blame, but Kane is hamstrung by the rest of the team....
    Sure, he was impeccable! Fantastic game from Kane.

    Mate that's not what I'm saying, at all.. He certainly wasn't at his best, but who was? .. I think there were many contributing factors to the overall poor performance but Kane wasn't our biggest problem, that's all I'll say.

    Harry must be shattered, he has played on just about every minute of the last three games.
    Dele got kicked everytime he got the ball, they were lined up to take turns at him.

    We didn't hold onto the ball in the middle or up front, so defence go no time reset and got turned very easily.
    As a team we were really disjointed, there was no connection at all.

    His free kick wasn't bad. Optimistic but he did hit the top corner area. Inter definitely took it out of him.

    I think he has started every game bar the league cup games. He played loads at the World Cup too. We need to play a few league games here and there with either son/lamela/moura up top and rest Harry. Southampton in the week would be a good time to do that imo.

    Agreed, I'd have him on the bench on Saturday and just give him a breather. Big games coming up and we should be able to beat a pretty poor Southampton team without him. Also good to give others some gametime with so many fixtures coming up, need everyone to be fresh.

    Can't stand him playing as a #10, cross comes in and he's on outside the box, or the one trying to play the through ball.

    Playing him deeper we lose a lot more then we gain.

    He says he employs a chef to cook his meals,what ever he is cooking him ain't working for a 24 year old he seems a bit leggy,yesterday he had a one to one with that greek carthouse and was out sprinted....i know we carry him sometimes(rarely must say) because he does get something out of nothing i would taken him off yesterday,put Son upfront and Moura come on for the last twenty,far more pace to stretch them.

    I still do not see the player he has been over the last few seasons.

    This.
    He was targeted. Every single time he turned he was hacked down. I actually really want someone to lay an old-fashioned reducer on Torreia next game.

    Agree he seems to have lost an edge. Still scoring, but a shadow of what he was. So, what to put it down to? Presumably some combination of form, fitness, fatigue and the effects of past injuries. But maybe also a change of role? Changes in the players around him? Impact of more intensive targeting by opponents?

    Whatever, we know that all top players will go through spells like this but most will eventually emerge intact and come back stronger.

    And if anyone is going to do that, it's going to be Harry.
