        He wasn't top scorer in any season - which is the criteria I used. Mind you there were a fair few who didnt rate him strangely

          Howard, for me - scores consistently, over a longer period of time. A bit like Collins, in that respect.

            It can only be between Steve Howard and Andre Gray. Very difficult to compare as they were totally different players (could have been a great front two combo though).

            Gray's season in the non league was probably more important than any Howard played in so I would go for him.

              Marshall was quality mate. Good finisher.

                I think I agree.
                Maybe a mention for Vassell, He was very good for the short time he was here.

                  Vassel was good once he learnt, so half a season plus one game. bambi on ice when he was learning

                    I agree with that, he improved very quickly and at times was unplayable at that level. Especially that last game.

                I had it between howard and thorpe personally

                Not sure Oakes was an out and out striker was he?

                Relative to the levels we've played at, I'd go Howard I think but A Gray and Benson were brilliant at Conference level and far too good for it. Thank fukk we had them both in 2013-14 even though Gray has now disappeared up his own arsehole

                  Good point about Benson. He was a fantastic signing by Still at the end of his career.

                  His touch, awareness and speed was such an important component of that title winning season.

                  Him and Gutteridge in particular formed a great partnership.

                    Him, Guttridge and Gray were lethal. But Gray wouldn't have scored half the goals he did that season without Benson's awareness, intelligence and movement

                    As you say, an absolute masterstroke signing by Sir John Still

                    I Picked it from (mainly) top scorers - Benson being the exception -and missed out paul furlong/matt spring. OAkes was more of a deep lying striker..not quite a number 10 (ironic that gary linker was a number 10, when he was the arch poacher). Gray ####ed hi sown legacy with his celebration more than the fact he signed for them.
