Lakenheath Old Boys

We are all former students at Lakenheath High School and other public schools in East Anglia. We were in school in the 70s and 80s and drank deeply from the well of British culture of those decades - the pints, the telly, and of course the footie!

Another quiz

Well done the Roon for getting his 50th goal for his country yesterday. But there are 9 others who have played in the EPL who also have 50. Name 'em.

The ones that come to mind are RVP, TH14, Cristiano Ronaldo, Drogba, and Eto'o.

Also Jurgen Klinnsmann.

You got Henri 51 in 123, Drogs 65 in 104, Eto'o 56/118, and Skippy 55/112

Dutch Skunk is stalled on 49 and you missed Klinsy because technically, he got 56, but 9 of those were for West Germany which no longer exists.

Keep guessing.

Great question, Gooner. I seem to remember hearing over the weekend that Robbie Keane, who played with us and Liverpool in the Prem has scored an impressive 67 for Ireland. Right?

Correct. As unlikely as it seems, Ol' Potato-head is one of this select company, netting 67 times in 142 outings. That's five out of nine. Any idea of the remaining 4? Admittedly, they are an obscure lot.

Alrighty, here's a stab in the dark. Tim Cahill - 50 goals or more for the Socceroos?

How about Fernando Torres?

I'm also guessing at Mark Viduka.

Nope. The remaining 4 are Stern John for T&T with an outstanding 70 in 115 outings, Hakan Suker for Turkey with 51 in 112, Jon Dahl Tommasson for Denmark with 52 in 112, and would you Adam and Eve it, Landycakes with 57 out of 157.
