Kareful with Kane

Last updated : 27 October 2015 By Hoggg

Until the Bournemouth game Kane had managed just 1 goal in 9 games, however after a poaching display found himself with a hat-trick.


What I feel Spurs fans should be reminded of is that the youngster was fortunate in his hat-trick. Now before you get all worked up remember I am a big Kane fan, but pressure was a big part of Kane faltering. 


The pressure was dumped on the the England international in the summer with a shortened break (thanks to those idiots at the FA) and then for Levy & Co. to believe that NOT buying another striker was a smart thing thing to do.


It has shown that Kane has struggled of recent, having to take up on Soldado's old tactics (dropping deep to get involved, getting in the thick of it as nothing is coming for him). I truly hope that the Bournemouth game is the catalyst for Kane to find his scoring boots again, but I for one WILL NOT be putting the pressure on him (unlike the club).


Kane is still only 22 and in this country we have a habit of pushing the youngsters too hard too fast. I know that some will say at the age of 18 Messi was toping the La Liga goal scoring table and winning the title for Barcelona at this stage, but Kane has only had 1 season at the top to date.


Again I feel Kane has everything to make him a real talent, I hope that MoPo is the guy to get the best out of him (he has so far).


A home game against Villa awaits Spurs next (being knocked out of the cup gains further rest for the squad) and with a few extra days rest and Villa's 6 straight defeats (winless since the opening game of the season) in the league you would expect a simple and straight forward win.


This should be a great opportunity for Spurs to further gain some points.


Over the next 6 games it will be a great time to see whether Kane is truly over his goal draught with some easier games against the likes of Villa, Anderlecht (yes they are not a difficult team!) and Qarabag, then 3 London derbies against the red half, West Ham and the currently faltering Chelsea.


If Kane can manage at least 4 goals across the games (minus Qarabag, as this should see 2 goals at least) then I will be a firm believer that the youngster is out of the woods and on track. With goals agains tthe likes of Chelsea and Arsenal it will show that the youngster is still in need of some desperate support and help.


For now though Kane is in the clear, his confidence seems high and I could not be happier for the guy. He is one of our own which is why we are so desperate to see him succeed, but let's give him the time and  support that we have given Lamela!
