I kind of want one of them to say "Can you please stop asking us about Harry fucking Kane ?"

Cheap media column inches, if they are still a thing? It's a story when he stays or goes. End of. The team functions with him and without him. The Spurs world should (in my view) thank him and wish him well in the future, he has been a fantastic asset to the club.

46 more goals in all competitions needed for Harry to become the Spurs all time top goalscorer, that isn't too many for a bloke with his ability and he could focus on that this season - which will help us win a shiney. Realistically it would probably take two seasons, so depending on how well Nuno does this season and if we get a Champions League spot for next season, Harry might just stay on to add yet another record to his list.

Jimmy Greaves - 266
Harry Kane - 221

I do wonder if he's secured a "real" "gentleman's agreement" from Levy ?.

One more season, a trophy and you can fuck off for a reasonable price ?

I still think it'll be tragic if he does end his career with no domestic honours though.

BREAKING: The key to Harry Kane's announcement that he is staying at Spurs is that Charlie Kane has secured yet another gentlemen's agreement with Daniel Levy for Harry to be allowed to leave next season.

Reading that he wants to negotiate a new contract to reflect the valuation Levy has placed on him. Wage levels between £300k-£400k a week have been mentioned ...

I really don't think that's a problem with Harry. He is a proper Spurs man, he has been most of his life and I can't see him being anything less than professional on the pitch. He may have been badly advised and he may have acted stupidly ( all just speculation ) but I would be shocked if he pulled a Ratfishboy on us. The best outcome to this saga would be for us to lift a couple of trophies and qualify for next season's Champions League, then Harry can stay with the club he obviously loves AND get the trophies he deserves.

I'd love this to be on the money...

It's the skeptic in me creeping out.

As long as it's skeptic not septic creeping or oozing out, that's too nasty. Yeah, it's a long shot, but as Granny Weatherwax said "Million-to-once chances crop up nine times out of ten."

Does there now need to be a period where he forgets about his dream move of playing for his boyhood club and realise the grass is a perfectly acceptable shade of green where he is...?

I don't get the warm and fuzziness from him yet, like he is a driving force and captaining our side towards a result... yes he has only played 1 game and that was in this European Milk Cup shenanigans... maybe I'm looking for something that isn't there or something that was maybe never there.

Did I read something about him refusing a bumper contract extension with a big pay rise and release clauses etc...? It could have been more made up shit and I could be adding to that made up shit...

I want the last 3 years cancelled because of Covid please... I'd even take Sisoko back...!

Yeah, it's all a bit awkward, isn't it? I often wonder if the players feel that way too, or if situations like Harry's this summer are just so much a part of the game now that they just go about their business--maybe a bit of mild needling in the dressing room, etc.

As long as he puts in a shift, and I have no reason to think he won't, I'm just going to enjoy watching him play. At worst, I've still got a very strong sentimental attachment to pretty much all the players we've watched over the last 7-8 years or so (including some that have left--I think that's why Eriksen's heart attack affected me so much.)

I guess I'm saying Harry has enough credit in the bank with me that I can still have a bit of fuzziness about him even though he may have strayed a bit this summer.

I'm sorry Harry got screwed over, definitely by City but also probably by Levy. And I know he'll still work hard to get the scoring record and help the team. But I had mentally prepared myself for his departure, and somehow it now feels like the Harry Kane era is over and that the next hero is on his way. He's not dead to me, but maybe it feels like he's from the other side of the river (Lea).

I also have a nagging feeling that physically, last year was his peak, and that the injuries are going to start taking their toll on him. Nothing to back that up, just a foreboding. Let's hope I'm completely wrong - he's still a legend and currently our best player.

I saw a bit of Hungary vs England, the second half in fact. Every commentator, pundit and 'expert' focussed on Harry 'missing' 3 great chances..... not the fact that the keeper saved them, or that he scored an excellent diving header. What a bunch of wankers most of the football media are.

Interesting .. Don Hutchinson on his Five Live podcast ..

“I don’t know Harry Kane through his character or what he’s like, but what I would say is when you miss out on a move, that does affect you. I am 100% confident in knowing, and I can’t reveal any sources. He was gone to Man City at one point. The deal was done, the number was £130m, that’s what Levy wanted, but his agent, his brother Charlie, couldn’t get the move done. I’m not sure why it fell down,” Hutchinson said.

Could certainly explain why Charlie was sidelined.
