Purely based that on what I'd seen of him before he broke into Spurs' first team. Think he's proved me a bit wrong now...

Joking aside, he has very little back lift when taking a shot that seems to take keepers by surprise. It's a fine art that hasn't been since Beegkamp.

Hasselbaink used to do it as well. Didn't even seem to pull his leg back and he'd unleash a rocket.

Phenomenal power, that guy. Patrik Berger was another one whose clean strikes of the ball seemed to come with little movement of the leg.

Totally with you on this, but a strikers job is to score goals and he does it well.

In terms of being "world class" (whatever that means!) my only niggling doubt is the level of premier league defending. Too soon to judge him in an England shirt or the champions league but that's the only next level he needs to crack on a consistent basis.

I think he's improved massively as a technical player since his first (PL) season - that season he was raw as heck, and it showed at times, but he got goals. Last season he was better but there were still kinks in his game that revealed themselves from time to time.

But it seems like over last summer and this season he's become a much better ball player, much faster thinker, and generally improved all round. Credit to him.

Not sure I really have anything bad to say about him, despite him being Spurs - always good to see a young English player do well. Who was the last player to score 20+ goals in three consecutive Premier League seasons? Probably Henry in the early 2000s?

After seeing that to think Wenger moaned that we were "on the beach" v the Mickeys. No mention of full-strength Stoke being "on the beach" the day before when they let the Arse walk all over them! Ho hum! :)

He's made the very best of his talent and attributes in that he has worked on his game to drag himself up to the level he's playing at today. I think when we look at him playing his all round game doesn't seem that amazing but he is absolutely lethal in front of goal. If he transferred that form to a major international tournament he'll go down as an England great.

Kane has scored 51 times in his last 61 Prem games. You can't argue with that. He's a modern day Greavsie.

He's not physically the easiest on the eye ,not the supreme looking athlete like a lukaku .his pace is aaverage and no real dribbling ability .There are definitely games where you barely notice he is playing .saying that when given a chance he is lethal from 6 yards or 20 yards or with his head .he rarely shots off target always makes the keeper work .his strength and touch have improved a lot this season I think .tgat 1st goal last night looked easy but he was running at full pelt but tucked it away .as said he has made the best of his attributes .i think if he looked better as a physical specimen people would rave more

I don't get why I've always seen a class player who does more than just bang them in, yet others think there's not much too his game bar the goals. He's always worked tirelessly like a dog giving nothing up from start to finish he's at it 100mph. I remember watching Spurs getting thumped away to Man Utd in his first spell of scoring regularly thinking so his attitude towards the game is outstanding even though Man Utd were 3-0 up by half time he never let up and his enthusiasm rubbed off on his team mates who picked up in the 2nd half. He's relentless and never gives the opposition a moment's rest. His link up play is also top quality rarely wasting possession then his movement is 1st class ghosting into positions to score. His shooting range is also outstanding being able to score from anywhere in and around the box. He's ideally built for the rigours of the Premier League brushing off defenders with ease and quick off the mark.

The onky thing I despise abiut his game though is his compulsion to dive. He's quite snide at it too which isn't always easy to pick it up by the naked eye but he's definitely a well practiced cheat who the Refs keep falling for awarding him dubious penalties.

In regards to his England Record he has 17 caps and only 5 goals so far

Shearer ended up on 30 goals from 63 caps for england and in his first 21 caps got 5 goals

hes only 23 for crying out loud lol

wouldnt be surprised if he breaks shearers premier league record

and id say he will outscore shearer for england

Very true. 5 in 17 is hardly anything to write home about though.

I agree with you. It might be because he keeps his game simple and sensible. He isn't going to run at players like Hazard or Sanchez so doesn't stand out sometimes, but his movement is outstanding and his link up play is too. He rarely wastes possession either.
