85 fucking goals. Dixie Dean.
Why? Is there going to be a test?
I've known about Dixie's stats (although not this one) since I was a kid reading every book about football the library had, and wouldn't dream of knocking them - the 60 in the league in a season will stand for my lifetime – but no-one I knew as a kid saw him play, and nothing was televised, so it's just numbers. Very impressive numbers (although lumping in the Lancashire Cup and England trials is stretching things a little bit) granted, but a completely different time - look how many George Camsell got in 1927, and his record for England, 'better' than Dean's.
But this is a Spurs thread, HK is doing what he's doing now, and I feel it's worth celebrating.
