In scoring our second goal in the win over Fulham yesterday, Jermain Defoe moved into the top ten of Tottenham’s all time goal scorers with 118 goals in his two spells at the club.
“Great to hear that I’ve become one of Spurs’ top 10 goalscorers of all time brilliant support today knew I’d score if given the chance,” JD said on his Twitter feed.
Despite his sporadic appearances this season, Jermain has still notched 17 goals in the campaign and if he were to repeat that feat in 2012-13, that would take him ahead of Robbie Keane, Teddy Sheringham, Alan Gilzean and Len Duquemin and into 6th on the all-time list.
Chances are however that Defoe may be off after failing to nail down a first team place. He has expressed discontent for some time now and while he became something of a supersub in 2011-12, it’s unlikely to give him any great pleasure.
For now, he’s our number 10 goalscorer of all time but should he stay or should he go?
