    Roy Makaay was averaging well over a goal a game for me before i sold him for what seemed a ridiculous amount.

    David Villa is right up there as well.

    Just finished the 2032/33 season with my Oxford side on FM2010. The goals are drying up for 37 year old Felipe but he still managed to score in both the Champions League and FA Cup Final wins and notch up another 15 league goals. He also signed a new contract during the season and now has one year left till he hangs up his boots. He didn't feature for Brazil, depsite being called up for several squads..





    Felipes record under me now stands at:

    793 club games / 956 club goals (516 league games / 600 league goals)
    169 International games / 122 International goals

    Grand total since i signed him, including internationals:

    962 games / 1078 goals







    Hopefully he can break 1000 appearances in his final year..

    I once had Robbie Keane score 108 goals for me. CM 98 I think. The central striker in a 4-3-3 tactic. Good old days

    Theo Walcott as a lone poacher averages over a goal a game for me. In the 2012/13 season he got ~60 goal in 45 games.

    Seydou Doumbia...I bought him once so far on FM12 and he just couldn't stop scoring, I hate myself right now because I deleted that save and now I'm trying to acquire him again and CSKA Moscow playing hardball, but I will get him by the end on the season and hopefully have a striker that can score in consectutive games.

    Not yet my most prolific by any means, but he will be as I'll never ever let him go. Part of the first season's batch of regen's, "Possibly one of the best players of his generation". Everything was just right. Model professional. Local lad, born in Bergamo. Favourite staff? Me! And he's a great player. To make it even better his influence started of high and has increased since, so he'll be captain and club legend.

    That is, unless someone steals him away. But they won't!

    I have just wrapped up my 22 year career save on FM08 and have two Colchester legends to share Thanner holds the league scoring record but Blanchet is only 26 years old and 14 goals behind.

    Tunnicliffe ended up with over 1000 club goals in under 700 matches with nearly 150 international goals to go with them, but again no screenshot.

    In FM2010...



    Probably this guy before he got a major injury and went bald. Lost count of the number of times he ran from the half way line around an entire team before scoring.



    There was also Álvaro González Ruiz who is by far the best regen I've seen in one of my saves. Would have scored more but played in lots of different positions (cutting in from RWB was effective) because of his ridiculously good all round stats.


    In 2012 so far it has been Declan McManus, who scored 13 in 16 last season.

    Current Brazilian newgen is, hands-down, the greatest player I've ever had.
    Has 101 goals in 121 games for me across all competitions (entering his fourth season with the club)
    I shudder to think of what his stats would be if I played him in the minor cup competitions...

    Michele Paolucci for AC Siena in FM11

    this player was basically my one man team



    not insanely prolific in goalscoring, but look at his assists and avg rating. and look at the (lack of) quality of my other players. i won the Champions League with this squad believe it or not, and it's all mainly due to the performances of Paolucci. he was my RVP/DiNatale, one-man team

    I have a goal poacher who despite bagging between 35-50 goals a season, NEVER SMILES. It is hilarious. He must be one hell of a serious customer! Superb morale, performing well, week in week out, but you wouldn't know it from the look on his face!

    LOL, any one else come across a dead serious player like this?

    Got better every season gone by but in the earlier season's was playing in AMC/AMR positions rather than up front. Ony this and most of the season before has he been playing in the striker position.
    Only problem is though atm he is the only person scoring my next highest scorer this season is on 6, where it is normally more spread among them all.

    Season 2033/34 completed with my Oxford side on FM10. Highlights were that Oxford won their 16th Premier League title and their 9th League Cup under my stewardship.

    My 38 year old Brazilian striker Felipe scored 32 goals in 40 starts and 14 sub appearances in all competitions. 20 league goals was a decent effort from him and an improvement on the 15 he scored in the Premier League last term. Stats still look good too despite his advancing years:





    Felipe’s league career stats. 18 seasons now played at Oxford:





    Felipe has now appeared a record 844 times in all competitions for Oxford. He is 27 games short of breaking Engin Bekdemir’s league appearance record of 578 for the club though, but he will hopefully eclipse that next season.





    Felipe’s record under me now stands at:

    844 club games / 988 club goals (551 league games / 620 league goals)
    169 International games / 122 International goals

    Grand total since I signed him, including internationals for Brazil:

    1013 games / 1110 goals

    Nice to get him over the 1000 career appearances barrier. His next target for the new season is to score the 12 goals he needs to have 1000 goals for Oxford. The next goal he scores will also make him Oxford’s oldest ever goal scorer, another record currently held by Engin Bekdemir.

    Of the 36,000 players in my game database the oldest are aged 39, of which there are only 10 or so who are all goalkeepers. Next there are roughly 40 players aged 38 and of the 12 outfield 38 year olds only 2 others are strikers, so surely time is almost up on Felipe’s amazing career.

    I’m expecting the 2034/35 season to be his last but with a player as legendary as Felipe, who knows….

    My best striker is a player called Rondinelli. He has scored 157 goals in 167 games in just under five seasons in the year 2037. He is only 22 years of age! I hope he continues to perform to such a high level.

    Leandro Damiao.

    First full season he hit 32 goals in 36 games.

    This season he's hit 12 in 6. Epic player.

    Someone posted one with 159 goals in a single season, thats the most I have seen - a couple other people posted others with 100+ from FM2012. I got one with 73 in a single season as Weston super-mare!

    I signed this guy over the weekend at the end of season 1 - 14m - scored 36 goals last year and already on 7/6 apps for me. Only pay him around 50k a week too.

    Darren Bent on my Aston Villa save. He scored 63 goals from 40 Appearances (Including 7 as a substitute) last season. He's been injured at the start of this season which has given a chance for Yaya Sanogo to play (He scored 5 in my last game :P).

    This is my best effort for FM12, 56 goals in 88 appearances. I have only played the Norwegian leagues this version so its not on par with some of the other players in here!

    Having an adventure in Australia on this one, and while I do have a striker who I think probably deserves 1000 goals (and would be my first ), I'm not actually sure if we play enough games in a season for him to do it in. He was second choice for his first season, and for him to get 50 goals a year for 20 years would be such a challenge. From a slightly selfish point of view, I'm only disappointed that I bought him in, rather than him being through the academy.


    His best season to date was last year, he scored 45 in 40 in all competitions, mainly because we battered some lesser Asian teams in the Champions League. He can grab a goal a game in the 27 league games, he's so much better than anyone else in this division. I've got him playing as a lone poacher, ahead of two winger and an advanced playmaker. Such is the quality of the defenders in Australia, that he can just drop deep, collect a short pass, then run through a few players to poke it home. At age 21, he has 143 goals in 144 games for club and country.

    Thankfully, he lists both me and the club as favoured now, so hopefully he won't demand his justified move to the big leagues.

    Season 2034-35 completed on Football Manager 2010 and sadly, at the tender age of 39, my legendary Brazilian striker Felipe has finally called time on his illustrious playing career and hung up his boots after 19 glorious years with my Oxford side to take up his new role as my assistant manager.

    In his debut season in England his goals fired Oxford to our first ever Premier League and European triumphs which kick-started a crushing spell of dominance for the club, with Felipe as the lynchpin.

    He truly has been the most remarkable player I’ve had the privilege to manage since playing FM/CM since the early 1990’s. His devastating pace and power terrorised defenders all over the world for over twenty years and his ruthless accuracy in front of goal won him and his team mates 61 winners medals and himself the crown of World Footballer of the Year a staggering ten times. He retires having set all time appearance and goal scoring records for both Oxford and Brazil which doubtless will ever be broken.

    I think his greatest quality though, was his consistency. To have been that good for that long was just incredible.

    Since signing from Palmeiras for a then record £4.7m at the start of the 2016-17 season, Felipe’s final record under my stewardship at Oxford stands at:

    897 club games for Oxford / 1002 club goals (586 league games / 628 league goals)
    169 International games for Brazil / 122 International goals

    Grand total since I signed him, including internationals for Brazil:

    1066 games / 1144 goals

    I hate that man with a passion. Was one reason why Juve are mostly invincible under Conte.
    And a great example of how overrated either footedness is in FM.

    Just gave him a new 5 year contract so hopefully he'll set a decent goal scoring record for the next Newcastle number 9 legend to try and beat

    Best striker I had in FM12 was a Brazlian regen called Junior playing as Liverpool. His best single season he scored 81 goals and when I stopped playing the save he had 327 goals from 294 appearances.





    In my current FM13 save my best is 44 goals in a season by Bastian Adami but he is still only 20 so has plenty of time to do better

    I will always remember I had a player on FM07 handheld for the PSP called Matt Rowntree, he was a regen and he was scoring goals for fun for Port Vale.

    In current saves I have had Tom Pope and Jermain Easter firing me to League One with Port Vale and Le Fondre and Gary Hooper banging in the goals for Birmingham City in the Premier League!

    Ackter... and others who are getting 60+ goals in a season with a striker...

    Could you be kind enough to upload your tactic so I can download it? I am interested in starting a new challenge of playing in Brazil and getting a forward (Neymar probably) to score 1000+ career goals.

    I need to find a tactic that really maximizes goals form 1 position.

    Thanks.

    Yeah. But it's going to suck having to wait for the right regen to come through though. Neymar is only going to be 20 when the game starts, and he already has 40-50 goals for club and country accumulated.

    Yup. The entire team is there to give support basically.

    The wingers run to the corners, the midfielders tend to stay outside the box, so every ball forward goes to the striker.

    Oh that's a cool concept. I always wanted to create a team full of support for 1 guy but it's never worked out. Do you have any modified roles (ticked)? And I see the striker is a target man, hows he getting the ball? I see he's average at heading, is this an issue?

    Do you change anything depending on the situation?

    Nope, nothing is modified from there.

    Pass to feet. Heading isn't an issue because he's fast enough to get in front of his man most times.

    Shouts are the only real change, though a regular 442 is occasionally whipped out as well.

    Ok so no point in downloading the tactic then, right? Any other notes?

    I'll give it a try most likely, thanks.

    Make sure you have the right types of players.

    Massive creativity, massive technique, massive passing and massive first touch needed pretty much everywhere.

    My most prolific striker is a guy i have bought this season, a regen named clementini from Juventus.

    I had a striker with 20's in all the important positions, but he just didnt fit into my tactics and only got 20 goals per season (which for my only striker isnt alot), but now in January 2025 clementini has been here half a season and has 33 goals already... IM man utd BTW

    Hands down to Damiao. 48 in 40. On FM12 though, its another story. I had Cavani, with 350 goals in 320 matches. Brilliance.

    For me it is the beast "Fabrice Gauthier" who frighteningly has his best years ahead of him and according to my coaches, isn't close to his potential yet! He is a regen of course.

    He's not only a beast for me, but he scores plenty for his country as well, although I am very proud to say I kept him quiet when my Portugal side came up against him and his Belgium team mates recently!

    The most exciting thing about "FG" is he scores against all teams, big, middle table, small teams and even scores hatricks against the big teams.

    He does however score most of his goals from corners and free kicks, although I'd bet on at least 23 of the goals coming from open play.

    Mine is easily Mickael Schmitt, the regen. He went under my radar when he signed for Manchester United but he caught my eyes when he was out on loan at Spurs and since then, I wanted him. Waited for 3 years until I finally signed him for £33.5m to Liverpool. Since then he went on and broke the French goal record at age of 24 and then later broke the record of Roger Hunt. Was planning to stop the game once he reached that but I have got the amazing squad and want to see Schmitt, Thompson and Topbasi (Both regen) to retire at my club. The last 2 were developed by the club and I cant be anymore proud of them. Screenshots is to be followed.


    **EDITED** Seems like the forum/this PC don't want me to upload the pics.

    For real players would be Javier Hernandez, he was a beast for me on FM12, regularly scoring 40+ goals a season and ending his international career with over 100 goals for Mexico (!!!).

    That said I did have another striker, a Brazilian regen called Daniel Silva (on the same save) who was also ludicrously prolific and when I got bored of that save he did have at least a 1:1 goals:games ratio. Interestingly I also had a German regen on that save who I signed when he was 15, he went on to score over 90 goals for the youth team that season (about 50 were assisted by the same player) and had 12 in 8 apps when he broke in to the first team the next season (that January was when I finished the save).

    On my current save its this guy:


    He scores about 35 a season in all comps with a ratio of about 0.9-0.95 a game. Only reason he doesn't score more total is I rotate the strike force and he got a long term injury in his first season for me

    Just reading back through this awesome thread. I'm once again feeling the love for prolific goalscorers!

    I've often found that one of the most enjoyable achievements in FM can be to find a legendary goalscorer and watch with great satisfaction as his goal tally builds up and he achieves an amazing goals to games ratio under your management. Who doesn't like a prolific goalscorer in their team, honestly?

    I'm interested to hear all about your prolific strikers (especially with screenshots). Perhaps we can bring this thread back to life. Screenshots from the new FM, and older versions, all welcome. Look forward to seeing some of your best ever forwards whether they are regens or real players!

    Tbh, it was so easy to get strikers scoring a ridiculous amount of goals on CM01/02. Hitting the sweet spot using wibble/wobble could turn any average striker into a legendary goalscorer!
