Sterling is about the only one I can think of but even then I'd probably still keep Jack.

Thatís the only player that would come even close - but Iíd still rather stick needles in my eyes to swap for Jack.   He is that good.

I'd forgotten Sterling. I'd take him ahead of Jack, too.

Jack is great but he's not at that level yet. Hopefully he will be before too long.

Kane and Sterling are surrounded by brilliant players. The video of jack a couple of pages ago showed Jack setting up chance after chance for players who werenít on the same planet as him.

There arenít too many players these days on the same planet as him.   He sees the angles and the passes in a way that used to be more prevalent about 20 to 40 years ago when the game was played by footballers- rather than today where itís more like athletes that play football.

I seemed to have said the same thing 5 years ago on page 2, no recollection of saying it mind.

He could be. He needs to prove it though.

Heís going to be tested in the PL. Itís much faster. Defenders are much better. Midfielders will close him down quicker and not allow him room. Weíre going to see if Jack can make the step up. It will be fascinating to watch him develop.

You only have to think of what he did to Liverpool in the semi final when he had Delph and Benteke around him. He was really young then too. Heís maturing and he could have some quality players around him by the time the season starts.

I think he will thrive with having an half decent holding midfielder behind him. Whom that will be, should be answered over the next few weeks. McGinn also.
