    The golden age of the Serie A striker*.

    Send me a list of your top 50 and we can get it on.

    *general goal scoring maestros will be considered but don't take the Michele and nominate run of the mill midfielders you c***.

    Actually no. If the player is not described as a striker on trusted reference site wikipedia then said player will not be included.

    I'm game for doing this but isn't a list of 50 just a tad excessive? If I join in you're getting 10 from me.

    I don't think I can narrow it down to just 50 so I'm afraid I'm out.

    Do we have to put them in any particular order or does that not matter?

    Apologies to Big Dave Artell, but you've just jumped up to first place in my favourite Yorkshiremen list.

    Craig, I have a request. Can Paulo di Canio be automatically banned from this list in account of being a twat?

    He was briefly in my list as I was struggling to make up the numbers until I decided Gullitt was a striker.

    In 66th place we have Dennis Bergkamp who made one list. He signed for Inter in February 1993 for £7.1 million. He spent one and a half seasons there before moving on to Arsenal in 1995.

    Here's a fan made video with awful music showing all 11 of his Serie A goals (plus the rest of his 30 while there in all competitions).

    That has to be piez.:rolleyes: Negri is a good shout though. Probably best remembered for scoring shitloads at Rangers, he made up for this by playing for some nice clubs too.

    None of mine have been revealed yet. I do feel bad about forgetting Riedle though. Bergkamp and Kanu are great but neither did much in Italy really.

    I could never vote for Negri, due to his connections to Scottish fascists and the idea of voting for Italians called Benito still makes me a bit uncomfortable too...
