    Gary Porter scored 47 goals in 400 appearances as a central midfielder, plus some other positions.

    Good post, although he is a DM, he can nutmeg at will and spray 30 yard balls all day long but once he's in front of goal it all goes pear shaped. Those two wild strikes against Spurs were terrible as well. I can only how and assume that once he gets a couple it will no longer be a problem for him.

    Judging by the warm ups he has good shooting ability but not composure it would seem.

    Definitely an issue of composure, he plays these lovely little passes in midfield were he draws the players leg then knocks it past them, he only has to do that against a keeper and the result is pretty much the same. For a midfielder its still Goals and assists that really get you noticed so he's probably desperate to start scoring a few.

    Cleverly. Not really ours TBF though. Eustace scored a few, including one of the best goals I've ever seen

    Barnes didn't score that many as a winger, only when GT (God) switch him to striker next to Loofa did he start putting them away regularly.

    Might be an idea. Stick Capoue up front.

    It's a yes from me.

    I know Wikipedia can be wrong but it tells me the most goals Richard Johnson scored in a single season was 7?

    When did he play as a central striker? Blissett/ Jenkins; Blissett/ Armstrong; Johnston/ Reilly iirc? Played almost exclusively wide left, with occasional forays into midfield to man mark, e.g. Bryan Robson. Or am I losing the plot?

    It was after all of the above. The last couple of seasons before he left for Liverpool he played down the middle as a striker. I know he scored some great goals as a winger but not that many.

    He was quite prolific up front. Liverpool put him back into midfield though.

    Cristian Battocchio - Not a great scorer of goals, but a scorer of great goals.

    Darren Bazeley used to score goals that Messi would be proud of - such as this

    Danny ****tu will always be the greatest goalscoring defender.

    I know he wasn't up to much, but a midfielder who had a real eye for goal was Jon Joe O'Toole.

    Uncanny knack of getting on the scoresheet. Looked like a 70's throwback.

    Probably the highest strike rate for a true central midfielder. Couldn't do anything else though and so it never did us much good.

    angella scored more didnt he? I love him, the classy **** defender

    Classy footballer, but not a particularly good defender. Not a patch on Prodl, Britos and Cathcart as he loses his man far too often.

    Really? Have you got the stats? Apart from anything else, all those free-kicks he scored from the right-hand corner of the box after Cally had been brought down.

    I agree with you, sadly. The word **** in my post was s h i t! I did love watching him though.

    Damien Francis got a fair few for us last Prem season. Don't remember any of them though.

    Probably McGugan however he cost us far more wasted opportunities that he scored goals.
