West Ham scoring record laid bare


West Ham are the only Premier League team to not have a league top scorer in excess of twenty goals this century.

Tony Cottee was the last man to score twenty-two league goals in the 1986/87 seasons some 22 years ago.

The table includes several seasons in the Championship.

As a reminder, these are West Ham top scorers in the league for the past 22 years.

    It makes sad reading tbh , I would have loved Gomez would have given us 15-20 goals and some assists. Would still be nice to see him with us . Shows how much we need an out and our goal scorer . We need to sign Gomez or someone with similar qualities . COYI ⚒

  • ExPatHammer says:

    Interesting. But it does say “1992/1993 Trevor Morley (20)”. Still a long time ago – makes me wonder if the list is incorrect elsewhere…

  • Andrew Norris says:

    Sorry but I’m I reading this wrong , trevor Morley 92/93 20 goals , or does that not count ☹ as all west ham fans know we have been star striker devoid for many many years , deano would have filled that gap but …….. Neville u c…. , talk is talk let’s get 1 up top to complement what we have , Citi

  • West Ham Fan No 32 says:

    Was about to say same as others but it shows you need quality up top, Sheringham and Morley. We need to attract a young one of those, hopefully Silva will turn into our new Cottee 😀 Gomez I am not sure will ever be a 20 goal s season player, I mentioned Bradley Dack who has more than a bit of the Ashton about him, might not be the paciest but can score every type of goal and can create.

    “Tony Cottee was the last man to score twenty-two league goals in the 1986/87 seasons some 22 years ago.”

    Make that 32 years ago!!

    All very pointless to list those goals … some teams have records of single player goal scorers due to The teams playing style … other teams have a mixture of goal scorers from other areas of the park apart from just strikers … if all we had to do was stop strikers from scoring the game would be easy . It’s always going to be more difficult to stop a wide range of players from scoring . In that list there is a definite lack of goals scored by Teams as a whole instead of just strikers . If a team has say , three players scoring 10 each that is surely better than waiting for one player to score 20 .! and relying on him to do so All season long . No Manager would or could play his side with that being his one and only option . Obviously a good striker is needed and necessary for any team but it doesn’t stop there for a dynamic team .
    Very happy to see that we may keep hold of Hernandez,, that’s a possible double figure goal tally on its own ,, but in the wider picture other players should also be scoring .
    Hard to follow ?? , it shouldn’t be !!

    A striker scoring 20 goals does not make a good season. Although interesting, they are meaningless as sucess facts unless combined with total team goals, goal difderence and league positions.

  • berlinhammer says:

    Why are Costa and Vardy there if it’s more than 20? … ffs

    32 Years ago, not 22
