The Fastest to 50

Postby Manx Blue » Wed Feb 09, 2011 12:44 am

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.
