I haven't seen anyone comment on Barkley 'diving', looked a lot softer than the Kane 'dive' against Newcastle. I wonder if people have an agenda.

Thought he was excellent last night bar the penalty best he’s played this season. Convinced he doesn’t like hot weather.

The penalty would have been retaken in the PL as the keeper was off his line.

It wasn’t his best penalty, but the keeper had set off early and cut down the angle, guessing right.

Harry seems capable of going top corner with ease, so maybe he should stick to that method. They can’t be saved then!
VAR doesn't overturn the keeper being off his line, just defenders encroaching into the box

I'm bored so I just had a look at how Harry compares to the best goalscorer ever in the Premier League.

Shearer scored 260 goals in the PL, which included 58 penalties so 202 goals excluding pens. He played 441 games which means he has scored every 2.18 games.

Harry has 128 goals which includes 19 penalties so 109 goals minus pens. He's played 185 games so a goal every 1.7 games.
29 out of Steven Gerrard’s 120 PL goals were penalties. That’s 24%. And he was a worse diver

32 of Frank Lampard’s 177 in PL. 18%

Aguero 25 in 170 in PL. 15%

Shearer is 22%. Kane currently 15%.

The thing about Harry is the simplicity of his play that marks his passing ability in the last two games for England three of the best passes were by Harry but because they did not result in goals they were overlooked . Well they were not overlooked by me but the Kane detractors do not seem to notice his brilliant passing ability and I still believe his best position would be behind a main striker in a no10 position .
He would still score his quota of goals and I seem to be watching a different player to many others and to me he is absolutely brilliant but because he is not lightening fast or have flashy footwork his brilliant play is missed by people that look for the showy type of player .

Im confused...what's not finding a terrible impression funny got to do with growing up?
Looking at the humorous side, it means I can now distinguish between what is funny and what isn't, some qualities I find lacking on this site.

There are a few impressionists that can get Harry spot on, not this one though.

You tell them, pal! In fact an even truer act of rebellion would be to stop sharing your funny videos, so as to deny these unfunny posters the opportunity to see them.
