    They need to look at replacing at least half of chas and Dave this summer too.

    Sell Kane, they become title challengers.

    Luckily Sir Harry seems to have lots of contractual obligations that will keep them being Spursy.

    Spurs were still in the title race and in good form before Kane got injured in mid Jan. 48 points from 21 games. The wheels came off after that - even if, initially, the team managed to scrape some narrow and somewhat fortuitous wins from a run of poor performances. 23 points from the remaining 17 games. Kane made a couple of comebacks but was never back to full fitness and the team never rediscovered the form and consistency from the first half of the season.

    A fully fit Kane is a phenomenal player. Superb finisher of every type of goal. Excellent creator too. Works hard for the team. Even allowing for team affiliation and rivalry, I genuinely find it baffling that so many on here dismiss him as average / tap in merchant / penalty taker / selfish. He is rarely average other than when unfit or when used incorrectly (Hodgson's England). I concede, though, that he is good at tap ins (excellent movement and positioning); penalties (cool-headedness and hours of practice); and sometimes selfish (like most top strikers, because they back themselves as being more likely to score than anyone they pass to). But he's also a brilliant passer and very unselfish when he's certain that a teammate has a better chance of scoring.

    You don't get to score the number and variety of goals that he has scored in the number of games that he has played - in the Premier League, the Champions League or for England - over an incredibly consistent five year period without being an outstanding player. If he gets himself fully fit and refreshed over the summer (he's barely had a break for three years), and with a strengthened Spurs squad behind him, he'll quickly remind the doubters just how good he is next season.

    He's also a dirty **** who's immune from criticism.

    You play better without him. VAR will have him next season. Goes down quicker than Katie Price at a Premier League footballers bang bang.

    Only if he's unfit.
