Top scorer and Gammel Dansk!

Recommended Posts

Pulis has in public made a comment for the strikers to step up and go get 20 goals a season!

 

But - Who will be our top goal scorer this season? 

 

I will bring a bottle of nice Gammel Dansk (Old Danish) the next time, I visit the riverside, to the member on here who get's the name of the player and number of goals correct! 

 

If the winner is not going to the game, when I return to the North East, the runner up will get the prize, and so on. 

 

Go predict, you awesome Boro fans!  (We only count league games) [EDIT] (answers must be given before the next International break)

Britt, 16

 

But I think it might be Mr January if we make a decent signing.

Britt top scorer with 15.

 

No striker would get 20 goals playing for Pulis though.

 

To be fair, when did any player score 20 goals a season for us?

Not sure what that has to do with Pulis being *** poor at getting the best out of strikers?

Probably Ravanelli to answer your question. Although there's a few which have been close or would have if not for various reasons.

Was thinking the same thing after the comments made yesterday. It's been bloody ages since anyone reached 20 goals for us. Bamford, Yakubu, Emnes, Hasselbaink, Viduka... they all came close but never hit the 20. I got into football in 2004, I don't think I've ever seen us with an actual 20 goal striker.

It's hardly Pulis's fault if our strikers miss golden chances. Personally I agree with him, if he's saying that we're not clinical enough.

and for what it's worth while there's an argument that pulis strikers won't score 20, I think there's also an argument that our strikers do miss chances they should score when we do create them, and pulis can't do much about that.

I think you are right Brunners, we create plenty of chances that are better than the archetype 'half-chance' where you think that a more focused striker might score. Now maybe they don't because they are knackered from running around chasing lost causes at times, but certainly we should be scoring more goals that we currently do.

Oh well expected. Top of the league for 15 mins and it felt good. Watching the Ryder cup it’s really good viewing.

Under Pulis I don’t think 20 is achievable. We have a gaol difference of 8 which is not a comfortable figure if you measure a team on its potential.

    • Two scoring draws last term between the teams and always a close call before that. Forest you would expect to shrug off their poorish start and to progress, but they will also be desperate to start winning. However I would suspect Houghton will be content with a point at the Riverside but for Boro we need to start winning back to back games and I believe we will be too much for Forest and achieve a rare event of late. Maybe travelling teams will be showing a bit more respect towards us as a whole but I do think the game will be very different than seen against Coventry. Going for a home win though at start of season would have been ok with a draw  
    • Forest have so many attacking options, IF we win this it'll set a great marker for where we are heading.
    • I can see Spence dropping to the bench and one of bola or Johnson stepping in, with tav on the right. I assume that was the purpose of the subs the other night. roberts back to the bench as well perhaps.... if no akpom, I’m comfortable with Browne starting, he has done everything asked of him so far. Midfield and defence picks itself, barring injury 
    • So I've seen lots of highlights recently where both penalties and red cards were given, I thought they'd moved away from red cards if it was a penalty, or is it still a red card for being last man?
    • Hopefully Akpom is fit and if he is I would go to a 3.5.2. I would also bring Coulson in. I want him to succeed here and NW said he looked bright in training. Betti Dijk Fry Paddy Tav Howson Morsy Sav Coulson Britt Akpom I would love a win but i rate forest. Would not be too disappointed with a draw.
