It totally depends on the formation we play, who else we sign, injuries, cup run etc so it''s difficult to predict much. I would like Wolfie to bang in at least 15. Howson to continue where he left off last season and become a more regular scorer. Snoddy to get more than his 6 last year. Pilks, Turner and Hoolahan to get around 5.

I think that predicting 4 for Fer could be an underestimate, given his previous history - headed goals especially. I would be delighted, and a little surprised, if RvW gets 17, but you never know. Will Becchio play, given the presence of Quags, Hooper or other, and if so even 3 may be too many. If Howson plays (forward), then I can see him scoring more than 2. Has Garrido scored for Norwich yet, so if he is not preferred to Olsson, I think that his relatively few games score may be zero.

 

Otherwise I agree with the predictions. If they take a time to settle down, however, it could be that some of the totals will be lower.

I think everything that comes out of your negative mouth is a waste of time to be honest. No offence

This all depends on how we strengthen our attack from here, I think your prediction is incredibly optimistic.

Ricky should hopefully hit 15, but we desperately need another striker or two even. Someone who can get at lease 10 goals. I think a further 15-20 goals we''ll come from the midfield, mostly Snodgrass and the odd goal from defense 5-10.

I think we''ll hit about 50 goals next season but it is very dependant on if we get another striker in.

65(?) Seems relatively modest in comparison to 83, but truth be told we''d have easily done our job in the attacking department if we eclipse 50 this season. We were known for our attacking prowess under Lambert as the 7th highest scorers in the league, and we managed a paltry 52 (in this company) that season.Taking into account our solid style of play under Hughton, if we reach anywhere near 60 i think it''s fair to say we''ll be competing for European places next season. Not beyond belief, but highly unlikely.Provided we maintain the clubs motivation as well as making more astute purchases in the transfer market, i think we''ll just about reach 50 next season. Accompanied by a respectable tally in the goals against column that should be more than enough for us to make it into the top 10.

No Own Goals? Wasn''t it 2008/09 that Own Goals was something like our 3rd highest scorer of the season?

Predictions of 60, 70 and even 80 plus goals is wildly optimistic.Hopefully we will improve on last years dismal total but anything more than 50-55 looks way over the top.
