    Well almost! It’s more of a guideline!!!...

    I was interested in the form of Carlos Tevez and how quickly would hit his 50, and how it may compare to the achievements of our other players. In recent times, Goater, Quinn, White, have all hit the 50, and a little further back Kidd & Tueart.

    There are a number of anomalies in this list. I have tried to gather as much information as possible from “Manchester City: A Complete Record”. I got my copy back in the 90’s, and haven’t got anything more up to date! In the book at the front there are notable names, which give total appearances and goals on a year by year basis. However , during each year they detail which player played in which game, but have left any FA or League Cup games out of the totals. Therefore, players may have actually reached their “50” a little bit sooner.

    An example of this is Derek Kevan who hit 48 League goals in 67 league games during his tenure. He actually finished with 55 in 77 games, but it’s the goals in Cup’s which are missing. In addition whilst I don’t have info on Shaun Goater, I know he hit 51 in 102. If anyone can appraise me of the game he hit the 50th, I would be grateful. At present Carlos is on 49 goals in 70 appearances (including subs).

    Peter Doherty …………. 75
    Sandy Turnbull………… 80
    Dave Halliday…………….81
    Tommy Browell…………90
    Irvine Thornley………….94
    George Wynn……………95
    Shaun Goater………….102 (51)
    Johnny Hart……………..102
    Francis Lee……………….104
    Frank Roberts…………. 105
    Horace Barnes………….107
    Billy Gillespie ……………109
    Bill McAdams………….. 110
    Colin Barlow …………….110
    Billy Meredith ………….112
    Fred Tilson ……………….113
    Brian Kidd………………... 113
    Joe Hayes………………… 115
    George Smith………….. 117
    Denis Tueart……………. 122
    Andrew Black …………..126
    Alec Herd …………………126
    Bobby Marshall ………..132
    Bobby Johnstone…….. 138
    Niall Quinn ……………….139
    Tommy Johnson ……….139
    Colin Bell …………………..153
    Eric Brook …………………159
    Bill Jones …………………..191
    Neil Young ………………..194
    David White ……………227
    Mike Summerbee ….234
    Roy Clarke ………………246
    Ernie Toseland ……….264

    In addition to this list the following players, participated in games during the war

    Jim Currier 50 goals in 30 games
    John Boothway 50 in 55.

    I think I’ve included everyone with more than 50 goals scored in the list. If I haven’t I apologise, and please let me know. In addition if there is something more up to date than the book I was using, again, please let me know.

    Cheers!...Manx

    Cheers Falastur. I've used that as well, but its more of a case for when the player hit 50.

    For example, the book I was using may have a player scoring what I would believe to be his 50th in a league game in April. However he could have actually done it in an FAC R3 game and played 10-15 games in between.

    It was just a bit of fun to find out what was what really.

    Ah. Got you. Unless someone here has an incredible memory for games and scorers, the only way of doing that I guess would be to go through mcfcstats and literally count the number of times every player's name appears as scorer until you get to 50.
