Harry Kane

Harry Kane made his 200th appearance during the weekend as we drew 2-2 against Rochdale in the FA Cup 5th round tie. After coming off the bench during the game, Kane scored from the spot to make the score 2-1 and it looked as if that would be the goal to see us eliminate the League One strugglers.

However, it was not to be as Dale managed to score an equaliser during stoppage time which ensured a replay at Wembley next week. Kane’s goal took him to 133 in all competitions for us and he is now level with 1960’s and 70’s fan favourite Alan Gilzean in the all-time top scorers’ list.

“Gilly” as he was affectionately known, led our line between 1964-74 and in the process, he helped us win the FA cup in 1967 as well as League Cups in 1971,1973 and the UEFA Cup in 1972.

It was against Rochdale several years ago that Kane made his Football League debut for Leighton Orient. It just so happened that he made his 200th appearance in all competitions for us, against the same opposition. Kane has managed to firmly establish himself as one of the best strikers in the world during recent years and if there is someone who can end our trophy drought, it is him.

If he does end up remaining with us for the long-term, there is also a strong chance that he will go on and become our all-time top scorer.

Jimmy Greaves tops the list with 266 goals from 379 appearances. Kane, meanwhile, is tied in 8th place with Gilzean, with 133 goals from 200 appearances.

Surely, Kane will get better and better over the next few years as he nears the peak of his career.

It has surely been a privilege to have received the opportunity to watch Kane shine for us during the past few years and following his 200th appearance, many fans rightfully took to social media to express their gratitude and adulation towards him.
