50 Championship goals for Pukki

Recommended Posts

In just 75 appearances that’s an impressive stat. He smashed Dwight Gayle’s 50 in 83 today and he ain’t finished yet with 10 matches left.

He has been a truly ridiculously successful signing! The finishing, the attitude, the work rate, the movement, the team play, the unselfishness, the space he creates, the fear he strikes into the opposition...

If I remember rightly, from the outside looking in he was quietly 'snuck' in towards the end of the summer window with very little fanfare. He is surely a future "Hall of Famer." 

Kiitos Teemu! 🇫🇮

Wonder what the best ratio of goals scored to games played are in the chumps. That's got to be up there surely

Warms the cockles of my heart to see how much he’s enjoying his football at the moment.

The lad at Brentford might be ahead on that one.

Wonderful signing and he was just as potent during the first half of the PL season then he hit a brick wall. We need to learn from that not flog him to death and have other different striking options to compliment him and back up when tired/injured

26 goals in 34 champs games is 76% for Toney. Phenomenal, but Teemu with his 67% is not crazy far off, over more than twice the number of games.

Pukki wins hands down on goals per quid  or quids per goal. Cant see Toney sticking around  if they dont go up. Will happily donate a tenner to Nuttyos Funds if Teemu isnt here next season  . Theyve got a good player....we've got a legend.

When will Pukki reach Holt legendary status? After another good season in the prem? Gotta be close

I remember these highlights (must have been filmed on a potato) from the Paderborn game where Pukki scored a brace and thought he looked a player. Although he arrived without a great reputation, and looked a little rotund!

But you can see here the goals that we would come to expect: the clever movement, getting a yard of space and firing an accurate shot. 

(Don’t watch our horrendous goalie mistake for their 2nd!)

How many pens has Pukki missed in the Champs - at least 3 I can think of - so it could have been even better.

Apparently the apiarists only paid about 5 mil for Toney though, not bad considering what he should fetch if they fail to “promote” (thank you, Daniel) .
If he doesn’t have a huge price tag ... worth a shout for us as a Pukki understudy if we go up 😄

Can only remember 2 missed pens.  I believe we missed 7 out of 8 pens in 2018/9 they were missed by many players including Kenny, Mario, Rhodes (2) and Pukki.  Pukki was third one to miss a pen that season.

Was thinking the other day it is time the Hall of Fame was updated with the latest heroes.  Two promotions in 3 seasons  ought to reveal some Hall of Famers even if not played 200 games.

He's just unbelievably good. The number of goals he scores combined with the work he puts in for the team. You don't see many better in the yellow and green.

Nope - 3. At home to Derby this season, away to Birmingham this season and at home to Millwall two seasons back.
