It's all very well to allocate a certain amount of goals we expect each player to score, but in reality we just don't know. We can't rely on the likes of Valenica (someone whose goal record was very low for a winger at Wigan) to chip in with lots of goals. 10 would be a massive ask.
Rooney, Berbatov and Owen are the only players we can realistically expect at least 10 from.
Sometimes, we cannot judge a player based on his statistics from his playing days with a smaller club. A lot of players fulfill their full potential when playing with better players on a bigger stage. Adebayor, Robin Van Persie, David Villa, are all fine examples.
