For most Tottenham fans, Harry Kane is not merely the best footballer in England. He’s not just the best footballer in Europe. He’s not simply the best footballer ever .
In the eyes of many Spurs supporters, Harry Kane IS THE GREATEST HUMAN BEING WHO HAS EVER LIVED.
With that in mind, one particularly ardent follower of Mauricio Pochettino’s boys has done a quick bit of mental arithmetic and figured out what needs to happen for the rest of the world to join the Kane love-in.
It’s very simple. For the world to appreciate Kane the way White Hart Lane does, he needs to match the achievements of the very best: i.e. Lionel Messi.
Kane has already bagged himself a very impressive 30 goals in 2015. So… to equal what Messi has done this year:

21 goals? Really? Norwich don’t have the Premier League’s best defence, but they’reprobably not going to let him bang in 21 goals goals against them on Boxing Day.
That’s not going to stop Kane giving it his best shot:
One goal every two and half minutes? YOU CAN DO IT, H!
