Spurs legend Allen backs Kane to beat his record 49-goal season

first_imgCLIVE ALLEN knows Harry Kane is coming close to grabbing his greatest scoring record.The former Tottenham striker will always be remembered for his breathtaking 49-goal campaign in 1986-87.5 Former Tottenham striker Clive Allen has stated it’s only a matter of time before Harry Kane breaks his record goalscoring seasonCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd5Spurs hitman Kane came up just short of that tally two seasons ago when he smashed in 41 goals for his club.But the England skipper already has seven in ten games for the Londoners this term — and Allen knows it might only be a matter of time before Kane takes his place in the Spurs history books.Allen smiled: “I hope not! But, yes, of course he can. He is capable of it and I’ll be the first one to shake his hand, because it would be a phenomenal feat.”Despite Allen’s goal glut that season, Tottenham fell just short on all fronts — third in the league, FA Cup runners-up and League Cup semi-finalists.Fast forward 32 years and Mauricio Pochettino’s team are in danger of being recalled as another side that did not provide the silverware their strike leader’s form deserved.Allen, 58, said: “From the day Harry came into the club he was a natural goalscorer who wanted to develop.“I saw a kid who was going to get the best out of himself.5 England skipper Kane is fourth on the list of Spurs’ all-time top goalscorersCredit: Alamy Live News“He worked out that, if you are going to score over a long period, you have to reinvent yourself all the time, find something different.“With Harry, it’s about looking to find that edge. If he scores one, he wants to get two. You can’t give that to people, it’s something you have to be born with.“When you look at striking records, you see the ones who have that in their make-up. Sergio Aguero is one. Harry has it, too.”After his playing career ended in 1995, former Three Lions forward Allen went on to coach Spurs — and it did not take long for him to lock horns with Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.And there was so much bad blood that Allen had to be held back from punching the Frenchman by Tottenham keeper Carlo Cudicini in 2011.He recalled: “At Highbury in 2006 Arsene was furious we didn’t put the ball out of play after Emmanuel Eboue and Gilberto Silva ran into each other in the build-up to Robbie Keane scoring.5 Kane has already banged in seven goals in ten games for the North London club this seasonCredit: Reuters“Thierry Henry equalised for Arsenal and the game finished 1-1 — but that was just the beginning of it.“Chris Hughton and I went and had a chat with Arsene’s backroom staff.“They offered us a glass of wine, when all of a sudden the door slams open and in comes Arsene. ‘I’m not drinking with you,’ he said. ‘You are cheats’.“As I went past Arsene, I looked him in the eye. ‘Don’t call me a cheat,’ I said. ‘I was sitting eight rows back in the dugout. I didn’t cheat.’ ‘You are all cheats,’ he said.“From that point on, all I wanted to do was shake his hand as a winner.“In October 2011, Rafael van der Vaart and Kyle Walker scored as we won 2-1 at White Hart Lane.LATEST TOTTENHAM NEWSHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summer5“I was wrong to do it but at full-time I jumped up and went straight to see him nose to nose. I stuck out my hand to shake but he just walked past me, because he’d lost.“I chased after him down the tunnel. ‘Come on Arsene,’ I shouted, ‘are you a man or a mouse? Shake my hand.’“He wouldn’t. At that point, I lost it. I was ready to punch him. Just as I went to swing for him, Carlo saved the day.

DONEGAL COMMUNITY STARTS ITS REAL LIFE GOOSE CHASE TODAY!

first_imgA Co Donegal community has today started a wild goose chase reviving an ancient tradition and raising funds for charity.The geese will be walked to Carndonagh martVillagers are accompanying more than 50 geese across the Inishowen Peninisula more than 10 miles from Glengad to Carndonagh.The geese are then expected to fetch top prices when they are sold at mart tomorrow. The group left at noon and are expected at the mart in Carndonagh mart around 2pm tomorrow.The geese were all bred specifically to be sold to raise funds for the Coronary and Cancer care charity.The event is also honouring two members of the community, Tommy McCulgan and Angela Grogan, who passed away last January.Both were from the village of Glengad and had been classmates at Culkeeny school. They died within days of eachother – Tommy from cancer and Angela from a heart attack. Spokesperson Sheila Smyth said the entire community has really got behind the project.“John McColgan of Culkeeny Post Office, and some friends came up with the idea of walking geese to Carndonagh Fatstock sale. It’s a throwback to the old days and it hasn’t happened for 70 years.“The entire community have really got behind the fundraising throughout the year and the wild goose chase is the culmination of that,” she said.The group has already raised cash for the charities by placing bets on the first goose egg to hatch while their were in incubations units.The group will rest half-way on their journey tonight and hope to make it to the Carndonagh Fatstock mart for 2pm. The group hope to make a calendar and a DVD of all the fundraising events in time for Christmas.DONEGAL COMMUNITY STARTS ITS REAL LIFE GOOSE CHASE TODAY! was last modified: December 2nd, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Carndonagh martgeeseWALKlast_img read more

FISHER CONSIDERING STANDING AS INDEPENDENT AFTER BEING ‘SHAFTED’ BY FF

first_imgFianna Fail councillor Victor Fisher has said he is considering standing as an Independent candidate after claiming he was “shafted” by the party he has served for 45 years.Councillor Victor FisherThe former Mayor of Letterkenny says he is deeply hurt that he was not asked to stand for election by the party in the forthcoming local elections.And the local businessman said he is also outraged that his son David was not chosen to stand after being interviewed by Fianna Fail top brass. A clearly outraged Councillor Fisher said he feels like he has been let down by the party who he has served loyally for decades.He told Donegal Daily “I can tell you one thing – this would not have happened if Bernard McGlinchey was still alive.“I was shafted by Fianna Fail and I don’t care who knows it. I was never asked to stand and I feel hurt by that.“What’s more is that my son David did plan to stand and run for election but he was not given a chance. “Although Fianna Fail held a meeting, the general card-carrying Fianna Fail supporters did not have a chance to select the candidates.“They were handpicked by these people from Dublin who know nothing about what the people in Donegal want.“My son David is a very well-liked young man and my history with Fianna Fail and my loyalty to them should count for something,” he said.The four candidates elected for the Letterkenny area are Ciaran Brogan, John Watson, Liam Blaney and James Pat McDaid.He added that he was genuinely serious that he and also son David are now considering standing as Independent candidates. “My phone has ben hopping now that the word is out that I have resigned from the party.“I am genuinely hurt and genuinely angry. I am deadly serious about standing as an Independent candidate and I have already received a lot of support from people I have spoken to,” he said.FISHER CONSIDERING STANDING AS INDEPENDENT AFTER BEING ‘SHAFTED’ BY FF was last modified: March 21st, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:county councilfianna failVictor Fisherlast_img read more

first_imgAntonio Brown’s podiatric situation is strange, mysterious, and possibly hilarious.But we all know that’s par for the course with the Raiders.What we don’t know is when Brown will be on the field for the Raiders, and that has the entire NFL buzzing, more than a few hands in the East Bay wringing, and reporters from Pittsburgh taking victory laps for a team they cover.I saw the Instagram post — I know Brown’s foot issue isn’t nothing — but I’m not sure his gross, peeling feet are worth this …last_img
