Hi, all!

At the top today is forward Kit Graham.

Ramble of the Day

It seems like today’s a good day to have thoughts and feelings about Harry Kane, isn’t it? I’ll start.

  • I still wonder if the clubs of Kane’s liking want to meet the asking price of £150 million, per The Telegraph.
  • Is Kane prepared for the possibility that these clubs may opt not to spend that money?
  • I also wonder how much money it takes for Chelsea to land Kane, since they’re the only English team in the mix willing to meet Levy’s value per The Independent. (The report also says “it is the move Levy just wouldn’t countenance, while Kane does not want to completely sour his relationship with Spurs’ supporters,” so I think it would take a lot.)
  • It’s never truly fun to force a fanbase to realistically put a price on a player that is emblematic of the romance football can promise.
  • Will Kane be the perfect fit for City, as they now have a spot available for a talented but injury prone forward with Sergio Agüero leaving the club?

tl;dr: Feel free to dedicate today’s comments section to your thoughts on Harry Kane.
