Kane beats Messi, Neymar, Raul, Costa, Suarez

If you look at the scoring charts for the first 100 league games these superstars have achieved with their clubs, in teams that it is easier to score with, the statistics of Harry Kane stand out.

Goal in 1st 100 League Games
Lionel Messi (Barcelona) - 44 goals 
Neymar (Barcelona) - 59 goals 
Raul (Real Madrid) - 44 goals 
Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) - 62 goals
Looking just at the Premier League he stacks up against the best when looking at the minutes it takes to score a goal. This season he tops the scoring charts with 17 goals, scoring every 106 minutes, but he also stacks up well over his career.

  1. Sergio Aguero (Manchester City) 113 goals, a goal every 110 minutes
  2. Thierry Henry (Arsenal) 175 goals, a goal every 122 minutes
  3. Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) 66 goals, a goal every 127 minutes
  4. Ruud van Nistelrooy (Manchester United) 95 goals, a goal every 128 minutes
  5. Javier Hernandez (Manchester United) 37 goals, a goal every 130 minutes
  6. Diego Costa (Chelsea) 48 goals, a goal every 138 minutes
  7. Luis Suárez (Liverpool) 69 goals, a goal every 139 minutes
  8. Robin van Persie (Arsenal & Manchester United) 144 goals, a goal every 144 minutes

It is no surprise everyone is watching him and that the press want to make stories linking him with moves away, he sells newspapers, he is a hit all around the world. Couple with that his clean cut image and he a marketing mans dream.

Just as Gareth Bale commanded a huge fee because of his appeal around the world, Harry Kane now takes that mantle at Spurs. You only have to look at tours we go on, everyone wants to see and get the autograph or have Kane visit more than any other player. He is the one the crowd want to see more than the rest and the one the children want to see.

Fortunately Kane wants to win trophies with Spurs and so that is the next objective of the team, get the first one under the belt.
