That's probably not a bad shout but it's close.Probably yes to your first sentence.
No to your second.
Wiki. he is the sixth-highest goalscorer in UEFA Champions League history with 56 goals. He is a three-time UEFA Champions League top scorer, as well as a top scorer in three different European domestic leaguesI don't have the best of memory - whilst I remember him perfectly in the PL, how was he for us in Europe?
Wow that's class!
Taylor had a slightly better goals-to-games ratio than Ruud. If I recall correctly, the Top 5 for players with at least 100 goals was:Pretty sure that Ruud has the best goals to games ratio for us ever.
Better than Rooney, Best, Law, Charlton, Taylor, Viollet...
I was gutted when he left. He had at least another two years left in the tank.My favorite player growing up.
It's a shame how it ended with us. He's one of the greatest poachers of all time, and a good all time striker. Should be remembered as one of the premier strikers of his era.
I saw a list with goals per minute on the field instead of games.Taylor had a slightly better goals-to-games ratio than Ruud. If I recall correctly, the Top 5 for players with at least 100 goals was:
2. van Nistelrooy
Definitely impressive for someone who wasn't the primary striker and made a lot of individual sacrifices! However, and I may be wrong about this, Solskjær trails van Nistelrooy (and Hernández if we get rid of the minimum threshold) for goals scored per minute by United forwards over the last 25-ish years.I saw a list with goals per minute on the field instead of games.
Then it was
2. Van nistelrooy
Solskjaer, of course, has more "fresh" minutes on the field, but still impressive for a guy that never took penalties and played RM for a season(Beckham injury)
Maybe Taylor got subbed less than RVN making him slightly behind per minute.
No chance. Ole was great in front of goal for sure, but Ruud was the most clinical I’ve ever seen, anywhere.I know a lot of people say Ruud was our most clinical finisher, but I'd actually give that title to Ole. Ruud was obviously better at getting chances to score so would score quite a lot more overall, but if you to give one of our strikers an opportunity to score with everything on the line I'd want it to fall to Ole every time.
