Fair play to Harry Kane, he is showing season after season he could just maybe match Alan Shearer’s epic achievements in the Premier League.

Two more goals on Saturday as Tottenham hammered Fat Sam’s Everton 4-0.

That brace means Harry Kane moves onto 20 Premier League goals for the season, with still 15 matches remaining.

What it also does is move him into elite company with Alan Shearer and Thierry Henry, on one particular record.

The Spurs striker now only the third striker in the Premier League era to score 20 goals in four seasons in a row.

Thierry Henry actually did it five years in a row from 2001/02 to 2005/06.

Alan Shearer did it three seasons in a row at Blackburn and then in 1996/97 when he joined Newcastle and played alongside Les Ferdinand. Not many would have bet against him making it five in a row but that awful injury Shearer suffered pre-season at Goodison Park put paid to that.

As Newcastle sit on only 21 goals in total from 23 games and a top scorer with only four goals, what would we give for another Alan Shearer, or failing that…a Harry Kane.

    The Golden Boy of the press & FA may be good at what he does but he’s still an effing cheat like his mate Dele Ali.

    • Peter Stabler

      Good chance either of them will get sent off in the WC.

      • Peaky Magpie

        Very good chance but it won’t be Kane’s fault of course !

  • Leazes

    He’s Valued at around £110 million but it would probably take double that for Manchester United or Madrid to poach him.

    • Jezza

      It certainly would take more than £200 million because Spurs will fight tooth and nail to keep him. On the other hand, imagine if Harry Kane had come through the ranks at Newcastle. You can guarantee Fat Ashley would have sold him to the highest bidder at least three years ago just like he cashed in on Andy Carroll at the first opportunity.

        I think they’d return that money in around 4-5 years, solely by selling Kane shirts. Paying that amount of money for popular players is nothing. Let’s say that it costs 60 quids on low. If he’d go for 180 million, you’d need 3 million cheaper shirts sold in order to recoup the investment. That’s not hard at all for them, especially if he plays well.

    On PL level Kane is right beside those two but on the international – nowhere near. But he’s still young, has time.

    • Idiot

      On PL level Shearer was nowhere near Henry or Kane..

      • Paul Busby

        most appropriate name ever, based on that comment.

  • Mag_Ladd

    Was talking to a colleague about Kane and from watching him, we summed up he isn’t all that as a player BUT he’s perfected what he does in managing to find the net. I know that’s a strikers job and all, but he is really lacking in other areas of his game but it doesn’t matter when he guarantees you goals like he does. He’s such a paradox as a player to me, it’s unreal.
