Harry Kane will have a scan on his injured ankle today (Monday 13 March 2017) but does this mean he’ll be out for the rest of the season?

Speaking after Spurs mauled Millwall 6-0 yesterday Poch said…

Harry has twisted his ankle, the same ankle that was injured before. Now it’s a matter of waiting.

‘We will assess him today (Sunday) and see what happens. It’s difficult. It looks a similar situation to when he was injured against Sunderland earlier in the season.

‘We need to assess him. It’s too difficult to give a real level of how his ankle is. We hope it’s not a big issue, but it looks similar.

‘It will be difficult for him to play against Southampton on Sunday, but we need to be cautious.’

  • Hope we make the finals… Vincent going on a goal runy now would be great… Kane scan with a good result would be greater

  • Now Harry is out and, for ever how long that will be, we will get to see the true strength of our squad and players. I personally don’t think we should use his early season absence as a guide to how we will perform this time around. After initially doing well without him our form dipped but, as a team, when he returned, that poor form still continued for a few matches, until we got back on track……. As a team, we have consistently continued throughout the season to create many very good goalscoring chances in most games. I see no reason for that not to continue and in Son and Dele at least, we have two players that have scored a total of thirty goals this season and share a total of nine assists. There is also the unproven (so far) quantity that is Janssen. It may well be that his early season stint (however unproductive), could prove to stand him in good stead this time around. I’m confident…. Harry will of course be missed but hopefully not as badly as many of us Spurs supporters are now fearing….. We do have a very good team and the way they all celebrated VJ’s well taken goal yesterday, I think their camaraderie and fighting spirit can see them shine, with or without Mr. Kane.

  • Yeah. Eriksen… Not bad considering he’s been (allegedly) rubbish all season. And Janssen is now on five. How many has he started? Can’t be many more than ten, which, if you’re a stat fanatic, ain’t so shabby for a young, struggling back-up foreign striker. He may have started many more – I really don’t know. I’m just happy painting a colourful picture. 😀

  • I love the way there always seems to be a happy, clappy response with us. Leicester will fall away, Chelsea will fall away, losing Kane won’t hurt us… it goes on. In the real world the chances of us beating first Chelsea then City or Arsenal without Kane are virtually zero. The chances of us holding on to a top four position have also been hit hard. What we should be asking is why Kane was playing in the Millwall game in the first place. They offered no threat and we scored six after Kane left the pitch.

  • Lets just wait on the Kane problem before we half fill the glass…

    Never know, Janssen may keep him out of the team from here on !!

  • jod – hindsight is always 20/20. Imagine we hadn’t started Kane and lost the game. You would be the first person arguing that it was a terrible decision and that if we wanted a serious shot at a trophy, we should have played our strongest team in the FA Cup quarters. It almost seems as though you are taking the opposite angle just for argument’s sake. Do you honestly believe that we shouldn’t have played our strongest team in a FA Cup quarter? I fully agree with you that we will miss Kane, and that a top 4 finish has just gotten harder, but we do have a relatively easy run-in, both Manchester clubs are still in 3 competitions and spread out thinner than we are, so it could yet be worse.

  • This being said jerkin, considering 4 of Janssen’s 5 goals have come from the penalty spot, we can’t exactly call it a season for the ages either… 5 goals in 29 appearances (8 starts, 5 of them in the PL). Vincent has 1 goal from 15 PL apps (a penalty), 2 goals from 2 League Cup apps (2 penalties), 2 goals from 3 FA Cup apps (a penalty and the goal v. Millwall), the rest of the apps are from the CL/EL with no goals.

  • Thing is, last time we lost Kane we all sort of knew that the rest would do him some good as he had played so many games for club and country. He was looking a little out of sorts. We definitely can’t say that this time around. He’s looked really fresh and is scoring for fun. Kane will miss the Southampton game and the international break. That’s certain. As we move into April we have 4 tricky, winnable league games but in a 15 day period before the semi-final and NLD. It is then time for the squad players to step up.

  • BelgianSpur – I love the way you can read my mind, except of course you can’t. I would have put Kane on the bench and started with Janssen, an opportunity for him to gain some confidence against weak opposition. I would have been tempted to give Wimmer a run out in place of Vertonghen for the same reason. A one nil win was actually all that we needed, the extra goals count for nothing, not even goal difference. Your problem is you don’t really seem to be able to properly assess risk, you are looking for a risk free option that is just not available. Beating Millwall counts for nothing if we can’t beat Chelsea and then City or Arsenal. Losing Kane could cost us both the Cup and a Champions League spot. Playing him was actually a much bigger gamble than not playing him, but you can’t see that.

  • Jod …. I?m sure everyone on here gets the realities of football just like you do. But, they also like to be optimistic, hope for the best, understand that anything is possible, and accept the result whichever way it goes … just like you don?t.

  • All I said was that I hope we don’t miss Harry as much as we all fear… Not happy or clappy. Not unreal. If one chooses to be down about the unknown future then so be it. I can’t be bothered to upset myself about that which has yet to happen and so I highlighted the good stuff to make me feel a bit better. So sue me!……… Get well soon Harry. Apparently our team is rubbish without you.

  • Well I will just add that to the long list of things jod thinks I can’t do, or anyone else for that matter. Please do continue to enlighten us as if we are a bunch of 6 year olds who know nothing about football. I personally think that starting two hugely out-of-form players in Janssen and Wimmer, in a knockout game (as opposed to the league, where dropped points one week aren’t nearly as impactful over the long term as losing a single elimination game), would have been a ridiculous decision. We are all capable of assessing the risk associated with any decision, and their impact on following games. When we post, we are doing so knowing the consequences, but believing that it’s still the best decision. The way I see it, the problem isn’t starting Kane, as injuries are impossible to predict (although I’m sure you can, as you always seem to know better). The real problem is not having enough depth to cope with his injury.

  • Jod, in the end and precisely because of Kane going off so early in the match, I’d say that the 6 goals count for a lot. Son scoring a hat trick as well as Janssens goal and the other two scoring has got to be a huge positive going into all the remaining matches with or without Harry. It has to be a huge confidence boost for the whole team and Pochettino himself. 6-0 is most definitely always much better than 1-0, even in a knock-out match and even if both scores (of course) end with the same result, a win.

  • Anyway, as of yet we don’t know the full extent of Kane’s injury. It looked bad but let’s just see what the scan results come up with before assuming the worse. Whatever happens we will just have to get on with it.

  • Speaking of having a winning mentality or not. (Which we weren’t). This season, Spurs have the most PL points gained (14) when coming back from a losing position. Just thought I’d share it with you all. 😉

  • Now that you’ve brought it up … I don’t understand why anyone would want to watch a sport like football when every game has one or sometimes two teams completely devoid of a wining mentality. It’s obviously a sport for losers!

  • There isn’t a problem, until it occurs!. Sorry for stating the obvious!. However, my ‘downer’ moment is an echo of Frank’s regular ‘rant’ here that THFC has failed to address a glaringly obvious deficiency in the squad for three seasons. As such it is difficult to see how we can address Kane’s absence, especially in this vital part of the season. (Come back Frank). Jannsen’s muted celebration told me all I need to know about how he feels being made to be a peripheral part of the team. 5 mins in one game and 6 in another does no one any good with their confidence and building some understanding with team mates. Far too much emphasis on training ground showings imo. Eriksen must be knocking 100’s of free kicks from all angles in training and his corners must also be best om training. Onomah must be impressing more than Jannsen to make the bench more frequently. Poch immediately identifying Son as an alternative was another kick in the teeth for Vincent, as was leaving him on bench when he was the only recognised striker available after 7 mins of the game. Let’s see how the others rise up to the challenge. I am no longer optimistic for the rest of the season. At least a season end collapse can’t be blamed on fatigue! Hope my concerns are totally unfounded and I will gladly eat a huge slice of the proverbial pie. COYS!
