Art's Quiz Challenge type thing: Who are the best five Premier League penalty takers?

 

(measuring success as a percentage of goals from pens taken, only counting players who've taken at least 10, and starting in '92-93 which, as we all know, is when football began).

 

No Googling :nerd:

 

Matt letissier, Shearer, lampard, baines and toure?

No to Shearer and Lampard. Yes to Baines, who has scored 14 out of 15 giving him the joint 4th best record :nerd:

 

(Toure's ruled out as he's not taken 10 or more)

Yakubu's a good guess but to use faceman's favourite phrase - I say no to everything apart from dicks.

 

(I don't remember Dicks ever getting that many in one season but I could be wrong, it has been known. Maybe thinking of fellow fat defender Steve Bruce? I remember he got about 20 goals one season when he was penalty taker).

 

Clue: Ones a forward who had a couple of good years then just hung about and ones an underrated midfielder who played for several Premier League clubs. Both English B)

En route to St Marys for saints vs liverpool. Complimentary tickets and a few ales. Report to follow.

Should be a good game. Saints playing well this season and personally hope they finish in top four.

Every time I watch Southampton they're like that - dominate the game but don't score then end up struggling to get something out the game. Looks like they're not going to hang on 4th which is a shame although I suppose it'll be quite funny when Man Utd miss out again.

 

Anyway, it's time for Art's Quiz Challenge no.2

 

Who are the top 5 all-time scorers of headed goals? (Premier League era only).
