**Emile Heskey - The Full Goal Scoring Record**

**Emile Heskey - The Full Goal Scoring Record**

The scoring record of 31-year-old striker Emile Ivanhoe Heskey who if the rumour mill is to be believed - and it seems to much of a news clamour now not to have some substance - is set to sign for the Mighty Claret and Blue.

Here is his goal record a) in the league b) in all competitions c) goal ratio's d) international goals

Date / Club / Appearances / (Goals)

1994–2000 - Leicester City 146 (40)
Including cup games 184 appearances - 46 goals
So 1 goal in 4 games ratio

2000–2004 - Liverpool 118 (39)
Best season was 00-01 with 14 goals in 33 league games.
Including cup games 174 appearances and 60 goals
So 1 goal in 3 games ratio

2004–2006 - Birmingham City 68 (14)
Including cup games 78 appearances and 16 goals
So 1 goal in nearly 5 games ratio

2006- - Wigan Athletic 80 (15)
In all competitions 85 games and 15 goals
So 1 goal in 5.6 games ratio

2009-2014 - Aston Villa 150 appearances (100 goals) :o)

England U18's 8 (5)
England U21 17(6)
England B 1 (1)
England 50 (5) (1 in 10 games)

He started with Leicester City as a kid. His move to Liverpool in 2000 cost then manager Gerard Houllier a massive fee of £11million.

He was sold to the Blues in 2003 for an initial £3.5m + add ons. He was Blues player of the season in 2004/05 with 11 goals. The 2005/06 season he got dogs abuse for a haul of just four goals in 34 games. And I really do mean dogs abuse, my mate (I say mate, more prison visits really) is a Blue nose and said he got the lot thrown at him.

He was sold to Wigan in 2006 for around £5.5million.

If rumours are right, he is about to join Villa for around £3.5million although that is only a press generated sum and judging by previous history, if we buy him it will be recorded as an undisclosed fee.

Our latest poll asks what sort of signing you think he'll be. I'm told he brings more than goals, with a record as above, I hope so. He could be very good for the likes of Gabby to feed off. Not enough space for three big men at Villa though, so Marlon Harewood soon to leave perhaps? And who would be first choice, Heskey or John Carew. Luckily I'm not the manager, so I don't have to think about it!

Remember the John Terry comment! He said Heskey was his least favourite striker to play against. I think Heskey would pop a few in as well as set up the others very frequently.

This signing will please me no end if it goes through. He will be massive for us in our tilt for the title. Oh Yes! I've just come over all unnecessary.
