Against all odds
I had engaged in sparingly but didn't really feel that it was overwhelming skewed to " start kane no matter what". I thought many were reserving their opinions due to a few factors unknown such as how fit HK would be etc. Unfortunately, the fear came true when Kane did not win the ball not once but twice in the matter of the first 20 seconds of the game hence leading to the Sissoko hand ball debacle. Kane kept his massive sub par performance for the full 1st 45 min but my real surprise was the fact that Poch kept him for the next full 45 min till the painful end. Just like that TV guy said, it was like a man down.What's to exaggerate - had you not discussed the [HK] to start issue or seen it discussed?
Clearly, most f the avid Kane must start mob have now gone in to hiding; right up to 8:00 pm on Saturday they had one voice! I cant get my head around how so easily such stupidity can so permeate a collective mind set. As to how Pochettino gave in to this obvious tide of madness I really don't know. Perhaps Harry demanded to play from the start - who can say?
