Thread: 4 goals or more

  1. #1

    4 goals or more

    This season we've scored 4 goals in a league game on 4 occasions. This is the first time we've achieved this since Dave Jones's swashbuckling nearlymen in 2010/11, where we managed to do so on 5 occasions. We hit 4 or more 6 times the season before.

    Our record is 9 games where we've netted 4 or more in a league season. We've done this 4 times, in 1931/32, 1946/47, 1962/63 and 2000/01.

    In the league we've scored 4 or more against Derby County most often (9 times), followed by Charlton (8 times), Sunderland (7 times) and Brighton, Blackburn, Burnley and Plymouth (6 times). We've kept 82 clean sheets when we've scored 4 or more and conceded 1 on 84 occasions.

    Our win at Birmingham marks the 250 occasion where we've scored 4 or more goals in a league game. We've won 241, drawn 7 and lost 2. Our two defeats were 6-4 at Rotherham in 1965 and a 5-4 reverse at Charlton during our 2012/13 Championship winning season. All 7 draws were 4-4: Derby (h) Nov 1927, Millwall (h) Dec 1930, Bournemouth (a) Feb 1936, Stoke City (h) Dec 1959, Newcastle (h) Aug 1962, Plymouth (a) Jan 1986 and Peterborough (a) Dec 2009.

    Thanks Eric, a good read as always. I must say Charlton being so high in your list surprises me - I can remember us beating them 6-1 in the seventies, there was the 5-4 loss there you mention and I seem to remember us winning 4-1 at the Valley some time, but theyíre the only big scores I can remember us managing against them since Iíve been watching us play. On the other hand, Derby and Sunderland didnít shock me at all - Iíve seen them both take some right hammerings at both Ninian Park and Cardiff City Stadium down the years.

    Every goal that went in was over 100 yards away from where I was standing!

    The Charlton away one was bizarre. We were two up then five down. Rather shamefully at 5-2 we drew stumps and were already on a train out of Charlton station by the time our fourth went in. Even then apparently we had a chance to equalise before the final whistle went.

    Thanks Bob. Here's the Charlton roll of honour:

    Sat 31 Oct 1953 H W 5-0
    Sat 12 Mar 1955 H W 4-3
    Sat 2 Jan 1960 H W 5-1
    Sat 17 Nov 1962 A W 4-2
    Fri 3 Feb 1967 H W 4-1
    Sat 23 Oct 1971 H W 6-1
    Tue 5 Mar 1985 A W 4-1
    Tue 6 Nov 2012 A L 4-5

    We've only won 3 of the last 8 home meetings with Sunderland, with them winning 2 of those. The 3 wins have been 5-2, 4-0 and 4-0! Out of 18 home wins against them, 7 have seen us score 4 or more, while a further 5 wins have seen us score 3. That leaves 6 wins out of 18 where we've scored less than 3.

    Since our 2003 promotion, we've played Derby at home 15 times, winning 8. 5 of those have seen us score 4 or more, including in 2009, 4-1 and 6-1 successes only 174 days apart. Prior to 2003, we won 6 games against them by a single goal, either 1-0 or 2-1. Our 4-1 win in early 2003/04 was the first time in 46 years we'd scored 3 or more against them at home and the first time we'd netted 4 against them only months after we won the FA cup!
