Hearn's got the upper hand with 24 ok Vardy and Green are bang iinform with hat tricks the other night. Is Shaw fit?

Can only see Vardy getting it. Hearn's got a couple more hattricks in him and should hit 30+ but Vardy has been on fire and hasn't showed signs of stopping.

As I have said for a little while now Matt Green may well surprise everyone. He appears over his stress fracture, the 3 week break did him a real favour and the Stags have got the most comfortable of the run INS. Even have the wonderful Fleetwood defence to breach home and away!

It depends how much time Vardy has on the field. If he plays as much as the others, he'll score the most.

I'd go with Vardy.

So impressed with Green though, he's now got 20 goals in the league 21/22 in the cups to.
His recent record for a season is 10, so to double it already is fantastic.

Conker Greenie apparently scored 26 in 14 for Cardiff City reserves in half a season after arriving from Newport. Apparently Aaron Ramsey was pinging them into the channels and over the top for fun and Greenie just ran on to them and finished.

To be fair Walker would be up there if he didn't get injured I bet.

Vardy will win it, Hearn 2nd and Green 3rd.

Hearn for me! Vardy is what 3 behind Hearn? With Hearn still averaging better than a goal a game in the last 20 games, 14 games left so even if Hearns form dips dramatically he'll still be on to score around the same.

Hearn 33
Vardy 31

Neither are we, we have Hearn obviously, but we also have Elding, Duffy and Coulson all on or around 10 (can't remember exactly what without looking) and we now also have Soares who had 15ish with Hayes.

Depends if play-off games count as league goals? If either us or Fleetwood are in the play-offs and the other isn't, then their goalscorer will be top. That said if Hearn dosn't dip in form I still see him coming out slightly ahead of Vardy, but only just. If he does dip slightly then Vardy no doubt about it, because I don't think he will dip at all.

Not so sure if I agree on that. Whilst a disproportionately (when compared the league) large amount of playoff ties seem to be rip roaring goal fests, it's also not uncommon to get cagey affairs settled by three or less goals across two legs.

Vardy for me, anyway. At least it's tighter than last year, though.

Just to show what a ridiculous season Vardy is having, he's also the thrid highest in the assists table (if the ESPN site is up to date, at least)...

Ben Wright - 13
Michael Coulson - 12
Jamie Vardy - 10
Patrick McLaughlin - 9
Jamie Milligan - 8
Andy Mangan - 8

This.

I think only Walker has played the same amount or less than Vady (without checking), which speaks in itself of his prowess. And being in the Fleetwood front line defenses can't afford to concentrate on him, wheras, if they can cope, they can with the others (or at least a lot more).

Our top scorer is only on 10! We have two on 10 and two on 9. Not reliant on one player.


Or a counter point would suggest maybe it's a lack of consistency in team selection which isn't enabling your squad to flourish?

Maybe a few quid to be made on Jamie Vardy.

Current odds with Bet365 to finish top goalscorer

2/5 Liam Hearn
11/4 Jon Shaw
9/2 Jamie Vardy.

Just checked the historic betting odds and at one point you could have got 66/1 on Hearn early in the season as he didn't score in the first 10 games.

I'm in a difficult situation here, those odds are outrageous and I'd want to bang £50, it's such a sure bet but then i'd be without money for the rest of the month and wouldn't get that back until May!

Don't do it! You can still celebrate every Liam Hearn goal then without that little doubt in your mind that he's costing you money. :)

I did think this, it's like when I came on here and told everybody to bang cash on a Hearn hat-trick. Didn't do it myself and almost cried when his 3rd goal looped in :lol:

I would think that it's just the regular season, although with Vardy being 9/2 and Hearn 2/5 it could included the play-offs too as Hearn seems more likely to be playing in them than Vardy at the minute. I'll have a look, see if I can find any rules.

Haha I posted that in the very early hours and had it in my head Vardy was 6-7 behind Hearn, hence it been edited. Those odds have changed my mind.

Play-offs DON'T count which makes Vardy's odds even more attractive.

Top Goalscorer
Only goals scored within the quoted division are counted for this market irrespective of the team (within that division) for which they are scored. The team quoted alongside the player is for reference only. Only league goals count - excluding playoff matches. Own goals do not count. Dead-heat rules apply.

The rules of this thread is regular season league goals only.but the odds show perceptions. In value terms I have Vardy at £1 mil; Hearn at £200k and Green at £100K, Walker at £150k that was in the last window. But no one was selling! And the Oxford Mansfield deal was agreed in October with an expiring contract in July.

Though I would rate hearn higher than green, I don't think either player would realistically fetch over £100k right now.

Both are cracking players, but they will need to do it for the rest of this season and half of next season to reach such figures.

Clubs would only value them at the figures mentioned to put off the vultures

Think it depends on the club, if Vardy was at our club he'd be worth 500k to us. Hearn at the minute would be worth about 350k to us but if he was playing at Fleetwood i'd double that because that's the price they could realistically afford to turn down.

Hearn £200k, have a word with yourself. I have it on good authority that we turned down a £500k offer from Peterborough last month.
