Lol that was a great win but people are getting a bit carried away. Bare in mind he has only scored 20 premier league goals in 2 seasons out of 5 so far. Hes one of the most iconic players of his generation and the best player in our clubs history. But not sure he's up there with the greatest ever premier league strikers like Drogba, Henry, Aguero, Shearer etc.

 

Also wasn't Cantona more of skillful number 10 Dennis Bergkamp type than a prolific goal scorer?

Tbh I was trying not to think of as many other Leicester players as to not be biased... But those 2 are excellent shouts. 

Steve Walsh and Gerry Taggart were 2 psychos as well!

But whereas these lot are all "Thou shalt not pass" Vardy is all "I score when I want and you can't stop me!"

I stand corrected what a compelling argument.

 

No where else in the world of football other than this forum would people be seriously argueing that Vardy is better than Henry.

 

It's madness And I absolutely adore the bloke.

you didn't say who was better you said who was up there so I stand corrected.

 

He is just as good at finishing as any of those names you have mentioned?

Agree with you whole heartedly on the finishing. But in terms of the best ever premier league strikers you would have to have your blue tinted spectacles on pretty tight to think he's better Henry, Shearer, Drogba or Aguero.

debatable depends what your basing it on.

 

he will be remembered in 20 years time as being prolific so I don't know what your basing your argument on tbf

Getting carried away? he’s scored 16 and it’s not even January.

Agree with this apart from the Shearer record bit. There's no way he's getting 260 or whatever Shearer has.

 

I meant with regards to goals scored in a premier league season I can see him beating Shearers 34 goals

He is already a club legend several times over but maybe by the end of the season we will be recognising him as our greatest ever player, above Banks, Shilton, Chandler, Rowley, Lineker, Walsh, Izzet, Elliot. He's that good and seems to be improving.

Based on how good they are at football, what they achieved in the premier league etc. 

 

My original point was that as much as I love Vardy and he's Leicester city's greatest player and a iconic figure. I don't think he is in the arguement for the greatest ever premier league striker as the op was saying.

 

Even in terms of being prolific he Averages a goal Evey 163 minutes which is quite far behind Kane (every 116), Aguero (every 106) and Henry (every 121).

If he bangs in 30+ goals this season then he's one of greatest imo. 

But to crown THE greatest is totally a subjective thing. Score 30+ and he's right up there.

So who is the greatest then? why can't Vardy be put in the same category as those strikers he has won the league title and is just as good at finishing and does it consistently... he is on course for 20+ goals this season again and looks to have another 1 or 2 seasons if not 3 ileft n him

I agree it's subjective. And I also agree his career isn't over yet so it's probably best to wait to see what else he achieves. But someone like Henry scored 176 goals and made 76 assists. A goal or assist every 84 minutes he won the golden boot in 4 out of 5 consecutive seasons. Not only that but his all round play was incredible, he was a creative genuius that helped change the face English football.

 

If he finishes his career strongly he will be in around the top 10 but some of these elite strikers are true greats of the history of the game and as much as I love Vardy subjective or not it's hard to make a genuine case against someone like Henry.

I would still say that Henry was a better finisher than Vardy. He could finish all types of goals. 

 

That’s not knocking Vardy at all, but Henry has to be one of the best ever to grace the Premier League. 

 

All opinions of course.

Henry also played for one of the greatest teams in Premier League history brimming with technical and astounding talents throughout the side.

I'd argue that Vardy only this year has had a team worthy of equalling the Gunners of 15-20 years ago. 

Thierry played with Bergkamp, Viera, Ljunberg, Pires, Anelka and so many other Arsenal stars of back then that it was arguably much more easy for him to play and score as he does.

Vardy broke records with Mahrez and Kante as the only other real top quality players in our title winning side that defended like hell then counter attacked through Vardy and Mahrez.

Out of Vardy, Drogba, Shearer, Henry, Aguero. 

 

Vardy has the least amount of goals, the least amount of assists, the worse goals per minutes ratio. The least amount of Golden Boots (currently none) and has won the premier league the joint least amount of times  (once with Shearer). 

 

At a push you could argue he belongs on the list. But what's the point of putting him on a list he will be bottom of? He is an iconic figure, a Leicester legend a brilliant lethal bastard but he is not the best striker in premier league history.

At the start of the season I desperately wanted Vardy to make the 100 club and hit his century of goals before he retired/moved on from Leicester. He started this season on 80 and he's at 96 before the turn of the year which is absolutely monstrous form tbqh. It's pretty inevitable he'll hit 100 now - it's just a case of how many more he'll get.

 

In the meantime, let's all kick back and enjoy the goals and shithousing of opposition fans whilst they all wait for him to slow down because 'he's all pace'. Phenomenal striker.

TBH... It's Shearer number 1.

And everyone else fills the rest of the top 10.

The op claimed he was the best of the premier league era. 

 

Could you genuinely make an arguement for him being the best striker in premier league history. If not then he shouldn't really be on a list for who is the best ever premier league striker.
