The Championship’s all-time top scorers
Since it’s reconfiguration from the First Division in 2004, the Championship has become the most popular, lucrative and successful second tier in world football.
Indeed, no other non-top flight division receives the same revenue or viewing figures and far from being simply a hoof-n-hope league, the Championship is now home to a number of highly-talented, spectator-friendly sides.
It can always be counted upon for goals with an impressive 35 scored across twelve games last weekend – even if they sometimes lack the quality what we’ve come to expect from it’s bigger brother, the Premier League.
And with that in mind, Football FanCast reckon it’s time some of the Championship’s greatest ever marksmen receive their well-deserved moment in the spotlight.
Courtesy of our mates at TransferMarkt, here’s a rundown of the Championship’s top ten all-time goalscorers since its revamp twelve years ago.
Newcastle, Watford, Middlesbrough and Aston Villa stars, alongside Sunderland and Nottingham Forest heroes, all feature in this top ten.
