    Default Saints 20 all-time greatest strikers

    I think Charlie Austin would get into my list of 20 all-time greatest Saints strikers, based on their whole careers, not just with Saints.

    In no particular order (just as they came to mind):

    Alan Shearer
    Kevin Keegan
    Mick Channon
    Ron Davies
    Matt Le Tissier
    Martin Chivers
    Rickie Lambert
    Ted Drake
    Peter Osgood
    Marians Pahars
    James Beattie
    Graziano Pelle
    Ted MacDougall
    Charlie Austin
    Steve Moran
    Rod Wallace
    Phil Boyer
    Sadio Mané
    Gareth Bale
    Terry Paine

    If it’s across an entire career, surely you have to include the likes of Mark Hughes, David Hirst, Kerry Dixon etc?

    Strikers or goal-scorers? Gareth Bale and Matt Le Tissier were mid-fielders.

    Charlie Austin? He's only been here for five minutes.

    How about George O'Brien?

  4. Default Saints 20 all-time greatest strikers

    Based on your criteria of their career he's nowhere near the top 20. Nor is Pelle and lambert would be struggling to get into a top 20 that was career wide, rather than as a Saint.

    Joe Jordan
    Frank Worthington
    Mark Hughes
    Kerry Dixon
    Charlie George
    Peter Crouch
    Kevin Philips

    Hell, even Dani Osvaldo could rate highly under your ridiculous method.

    Stick to 20 greatest strikers in a Saints shirt, and no he won't get anywhere near that either

    Derek also scored loads for Bournemouth Gasworks who played at Alder Road Poole. One of the best pitches in the area in the late 1950's. Now has houses thereon.
