Getting my champions tattoo on my left calf I reckon.

@PunkStep Can you please try and find that post where you gave the list of strikers that are 'more rounded' than Kane? I remember Callum Wilson was on it, but would love to laugh at it again.

I don’t really bother with watching your lot that much, but stuck it on last night. Has Kane started to play a deeper role in all games or was it just a tactical thing for Man. City? Thought he did a great job sat further back. Although when Gary Neville likened his play to Zidane I honestly burst out laughing.

Hes decided that he's not content with being the best striker in the world, he wants to be the best midfielder as well.

This isn't really anything new; anyone that's watched him for years has seen he's always had an incredibly strong all round game, passing, tracking, positional awareness (but not as strong as people like Callum Wilson according to some).

Its quite funny how pundits have just noticed. Maybe they were all watching different games. The best was when he lost half a yard, and everyone said he was finished.

Obviously I have a massive bias here, but the level hes reached/reaching this year is ridiculous and yesterday was a great example. He was doing everything.

I must give credit to Mourinho as well. He got it spot on yesterday, and the defence were very well disciplined and concentration never dropped, but City just looked really toothless.

But comparing Kane to Zidane is a bit silly yeah. Zidane has always been bald and never assisted Son 4 times in one game*

 

*a joke, I love that French bastard.

I understood what Neville was saying with the Kane/Zidane comparisons. The way Kane would get the ball in and around the centre circle and use his strength to hold off the opposition, all while looking around for his next pass was very Zidane like. 

I do honestly think Kane could be the best player on planet at the minute. Certainly the best all round centre forward...

I was going to make a snarky comment about this, but thinking about it, he's definitely got to be in the conversation. In my mind (and I concede that I'm not backing this up with stats or facts necessarily so it could be bollocks) it helps that there just aren't as many top level strikers out there that immediately spring to mind, but he's definitely been consistently excellent for several years now. 

Still a Tory wanker, mind.

This isn't a Spurs bias thing, but genuinely who else is in the conversation? Let's not include Messi or Ronaldo, as they're ridiculous obviously and they're not strikers.

Lewandowski? Definitely. 13 goals in 12 games this season, and consistently doing it year on year. He is a pure *Partridge voice* STRIIIIKER!!!! 

Haaland? 15 goals in 12 games. OK, he can be included. The big baby faced freak.

Belotti? Ibrahimovic? I'm discounting the whole of Ligue Un, I don't care. Salah? Patrick fucking Bamford?

It's not a massive list is it. and I'd argue Kane is currently a better all round player than all of them. The first two would be the only ones that are up for discussion in 'who's the best striker?' debate IMO.

And yes if he wins an individual award, we'll put it in our massive trophy cabinet.

Absolutely, he's definitely got to be up there, and perhaps it is Arsenal bias that makes me think he isn't a clear choice (or because he's a big old Tory prick) but there's no denying he's definitely an outstanding player.

Got to keep the thread interesting to the 5 people that post in it!

Edit: not worth another post but Ozil's earned his years wages here:

I’d take, Salah, Mane, Lewandoski, Neymar and Mbappe over Kane. All good players who contribute just as much if not more than Kane but with one vital difference, all proven winners. Kane has done a good job of rounding out his game though.

Trophies 

Yeah he did mention that later in the paragraph. I was more thinking of how does someone like Neymar contribute more all round to his team?

Think we'd all take a Golden Boot over a Champions League though.
