Nobby Has Sir Les In His Sights

He currently has seven Premiership goals this season, which equals his best ever, but that hardly constitutes a title-winning striker.

The player who is currently in joint fifth place as United's top Premiership goalscorer is wide man Nobby Solano. He is on 34 Newcastle league goals, along with Rob Lee, and suddenly the likes of Les Ferdinand and Andy Cole are in his sights.

1 Alan Shearer 145
2 Peter Beardsley 46
3 Andy Cole 43
4 Les Ferdinand 41
5 Nobby Solano 34
5 Rob Lee 34
7 Gary Speed 34
8 Craig Bellamy
9 Shola Ameobi 23
10 Laurent Robert 22

As for Ameobi, it will be interesting to see who IS the new number nine next season. But I'll bet my life savings it won't be Shola.
