    Eventually people will realize that Harry Kane is overrated.

    It is a big part of why England is rarely dominant and often disappointing.

    I know I’ve tooted this horn many times here. I’m just not going to stop thinking that Kane is overrated.

    I think if he was that overrated he would've flopped in the Bundesliga, which he very much didn't. Kane isn't the problem. He has his limits but he's got elite goalscoring instincts and we haven't really got anyone else that good at what he does. I think the main problem now is Southgate. We need a new coach to come in and build the team around Bellingham.

    You don’t think that Bayern Munich losing the Bundesliga for the first time in ages had anything to do with Kane?

    Lewandowski did better with Bayern Munich

    So... he scores all those goals, which is LITERALLY HIS JOB, and it's his fault?

    Imo it’s comparable to a player getting all the shots in the NBA. Sure you are a 2 guard and it’s your job, it’s literally in your positions name. But if you put someone else in Kanes shoes there’s not guarantee that they don’t score close to the same amount.

    Kanes success scoring in Munich was no less or more due to him personally as their losing the Bundesliga was due to him personally.

    I also realize Munich lost more than just lewandowski.

    No it's not. There 11 players on a football pitch and the pitch is massive. If a striker plays any defense it's a bonus. In basketball every player is equally a defender and an attacker.

    Wow, I guess he's just incredibly lucky that he keeps being in exactly the right place at the right time. Why do managers not realize that they could have exactly the same scoring for much less money?

    Oh, and guess who scored the winning goal to send England past Slovakia today?

    The Goalkeeper's going to get clowned, but the entire crowd should have been chanting "look behind you!!!"

    Somebody's been watching the Pelicans.

    Uruguay vs. USA on now.

    Divided Leeds loyalty: ex-manager Marcelo Bielsa vs. ex-players Adams and McKennie.

    It's no contest - Bielsa all the way - GO URUGUAY

    Well that's a sucky way for the US to go out. Maybe the US should hire Bielsa next...
