Let’s start with the good in a desperate attempt to cheer us up. Kane scored 30 goals for the second time in his illustrious Premier League career. Discussing where Tottenham would be without their talisman is an insufferable thought, so I won’t even go there.
Kane enjoyed his best goalscoring season since 2017-18, the only other time England’s captain notched 30 goals. Even more impressively, Kane reached the plateau for a discernibly inferior Tottenham side.
He scored in 26 Premier League contests, tying the mark set by Andy Cole in 1993-94 with Newcastle. Kane, however, achieved the feat in a 38-match season, whereas Cole’s record-setting campaign occurred across 42 matches.
Kane scored 43 percent of Tottenham’s 70 goals, the highest proportion of his career. He also equalled the mark for most away goals (16).
Oh, and he became Tottenham’s all-time goalscoring leader, eclipsing the longstanding mark of 266 set by Jimmy Greaves.
He scored his 267th goal in the 1-0 victory over Manchester City at home, another fantastic moment in an otherwise sullen season.
It’s only a matter of time before he surpasses Alan Shearer as the Premier League’s all-time leading scorer. Hopefully, he will accomplish that staggering feat as a member of Tottenham Hotspur Football Club.
After a horrendous bit-part campaign, Lucas Moura ended his Spurs career on a high note, scoring a superb goal against Leeds in his final appearance. What a way to remind us of that unforgettable night in Amsterdam.
