I've just been looking at the list of players who have been the leading goalscorer in the Championship in each of the seasons since we were promoted in 2000.

I have to admit I would never have come up with some of the answers, but how many can you?


2013/14: 28 - Ross McCormack
2012/13: 30 - Glenn Murray
2011/12: 27 - Rickie Lambert
2010/11: 23 - Danny Graham
2009/10: 20 - & Peter Whittingham
2008/09: 25 - Sylvan Ebanks-Blake
2007/08: 23 - Sylvan Ebanks-Blake
2006/07: 23 - Jamie Cureton
2005/06: 21 - Marlon King
2004/05: 24 - Nathan Ellington
2003/04: 27 - Andy Johnson
2002/03: 26 - Svetoslav Todorov
2001/02: 28 - Shaun Goater
2000/01: 27 - Louis Saha

Neither of them

Ebanks-Blake twice I think.

ClaretTony2014

Now that one did surprise me but Ebanks-Blake did do it twice with 23 in 2007/08 & 25 in 2008/09.

Tough one but I think Ricky Lambert was easily top scorer in '11/'12.

When Ebanks-Blake top scored in '08/'09 for Wolves, Kightly and Vokes and perhaps Dave Jones weighed in with more than a few.

Murray
McCormack
Doyle (?)
Long (?)

I recall Jamie Cureton scoring 20 or so when Colchester surprised a few. Shaun Goater scored a few against us during the Stan era so I reckon he could be in there too.

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 09:58 AM
Lambert, McCormack and Cureton are all correct. Plus Goater.

Zamora

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:01 AM
No Zamora.

I've stuck all the correct ones in the first post so you can see which seasons are missing.

Robbie Blake?

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:02 AM
Missed Murray, posted by pieandapint - that is correct and he's the highest scorer of the lot, the only player to get 30 league goals.

14-06-2014, 10:03 AM
Andy Johnson possibly? earnshaw?

There'll be someone crap on it somewhere - Marlon Harewood or Kenny Miller or Chris Iwelumo.

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:03 AM
"Robbie Blake?"

No Burnley players on the list although we did have the leading goalscorer in the 1999/2000 promotion season with Andy Payton's 27.

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:04 AM
Andy Johnson is another correct one

Pieandapint
14-06-2014, 10:07 AM
Long shot but was Saha at Fulham in the Championship when they went up, under Tigana I think?

distortiondave
14-06-2014, 10:07 AM
Jason Roberts and/or Nathan Ellington?

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:07 AM
That is one I would definitely not have got. Saha is the one for 2000/01.

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:08 AM
Nathan Ellington is also correct

Boliclaret
14-06-2014, 10:08 AM
2000/2001, Could it be our great mate Claridge for Millwall??

EDIT, nope its Saha.

BereavementDividend
14-06-2014, 10:09 AM
Nathan Ellington when he was at Wigan smashed a few in in I think 2004/05?

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:10 AM
No Claridge - which reminds me, we won't be on the Football League Show next season. :D

Grant Holt? Kevin Nolan?

14-06-2014, 10:11 AM
I knew there'd be someone crap on it.

Pieandapint
14-06-2014, 10:12 AM
Harewood?

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:13 AM
2009/10, there were two but probably the most difficult because we weren't in the league that season.

distortiondave
14-06-2014, 10:13 AM
Kevin Phillips?

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:14 AM
Surprisingly no Kevin Phillips

Pieandapint
14-06-2014, 10:15 AM
Andy Carroll?

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:16 AM
Carroll is a good shout to be honest but not correct

distortiondave
14-06-2014, 10:16 AM
Marlon King and I'm out.

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:17 AM
Marlon King is correct distortion

royboyclaret
14-06-2014, 10:17 AM
When we were otherwise engaged in the PL...Peter Whittingham?

Pieandapint
14-06-2014, 10:17 AM
I'm stuck!

Svetsoslav Todorov(I hope I've spelled it right). He was banging them in when Portsmouth won it.

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:17 AM
And Whittingham is one of the two correct ones from 2009/10

distortiondave
14-06-2014, 10:18 AM
I know who 2003 is - some portsmouth east european sounding dude like Stanislav Jedinov or something...

Rats, Tufty beat me to it.

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:18 AM
Todorov also correct

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:20 AM
A clue for the last two is that both played in the Championship last season on loan from Premier League clubs

Pieandapint
14-06-2014, 10:21 AM
Danny Graham

ClaretTony2014
14-06-2014, 10:22 AM
Graham is correct

Is leading assists next? If goalscorers was tricky this would be a right sod!!

Right well the season we got relegated saw Newcastle, WBA and Blackpool replace us, if that helps.

EDIT, a bit late as usual. :?

How did I not get Todorov? I was at Fratton the night he scored when they became Champions. Paul Merson missed a penalty aswell.

...Peter Whittingham 22, Nicky Maynard 20.

Tin hat at the ready.

So who is the last one with 20?
