Nice to see so many Spurs' strikers in the list (including Bent, we paid enough for his 18 goals...) Go Lillywhites!

Harry Kane's now at 99, will probably break into this group in the next week or so.

If he stays at Tottenham he has a chance of being the number one in the future.

He's at #13 now, and another couple seasons could easily see him climbing into the top 5. It's a long slog to catch up with Rooney and Shearer, though.

Well, one more good season could see him within striking distance of Rooney. Might be there already if he'd stop being so unselfish setting up Son...

Heskey took me a while (despite being such a fantastic striker of course) , otherwise fairly easy. Amazing that Van Nistelrooy or Berbatov never made the list.

Considering Berbatov is looking for a club he might still get there. Could be a great signing for a promoted/lower table side.

Went to look him up, and thought he'd come in at 103, but that was counting his first year at Portsmouth, when they weren't Premier League.

No matter what, Gerrard is always better than Lampard!

Level 70
Jul 14, 2018
That's ironic because Lampard's most memorable moment was not having a goal counted. And Gerrard's wasn't scoring but slipping which is something as an Everton fan I couldn't leave out of the comment section :)

Kane is comfortably in this list, still many years left of playing.

Lukaku now plays for Inter so he won't be making this list any time soon.

anyone with any basic knowledge of english football should expect 20 at least here. I got 24 but Giggs, Dublin and Owen should have been self-evident. Scholes was the only surprise - had no idea he scored that many.
