Up The Spurs! Slava Ukraini! 🇬🇧🇺🇦🇬🇧🇺🇦🇬🇧🇺🇦
JG’s record also includes 2 FA Cups, 1 European trophy and 2 Charity Shields.

HK could end up with a better record but we have to start delivering trophies.
 
Hard to look past Jimmy Greaves. Definitely a goal-scoring genius.

Look at his season by season record and it's just incredible. He's scoring 30+ goals a season as a teenager and maintains that for most of the 1960's. Can't think of anyone else that can match those numbers from such a young age.
 
Greaves

If he'd played for Spurs from the beginning, the mind boggles.

He scored 132 League goals in 169 games at a crap Chavs team. He was dropped in that sensational first season there (to stop it all going to his head!!). After 6 weeks, restored to the team, scored 4 goals in a 7-4 win.

A full career at WHL, he might well have got 400 league goals. That would put him way ahead of anyone else.

Redknapp: “I signed this Russian lad Pavlyuchenko," said Redknapp. "I said to him, you need to start playing better or I will pull you off at half-time.”

Pavlyuchenko: “Fantastic, in Russia we only get an orange at half-time."

Messi is the only one - and he's probably the best ever

Almost certainly never happened

a) because it was Rodney Marsh that used this joke about 30 years earlier
b) Pav needed a translator for everything

I remember reading about someone (Hoddle?) not a great goal scorer but a scorer of great goals.

Well, SuperPav's goals were some of the best I've ever seen. Greaves would always outscore him, but he'd never score those belters
