    Philly Cheese Steak Hughes

    Can anyone tell me if anyone has ever scored more goals in the First Division than Philly?

    Wikipedia leads me to believe hes on 106 and I'd find it hard to believe that anyone else who scores consistently wouldn't get his shot and take it at a higher level.

    Graham Cummins is currently on 67 though hopefully this will be his last season down here.

    Con McLaughlin?
    Andy Myler?
    Kevin McHugh?

    They've scored loads of goals and spent time in the First Division - not sure how much time though.

    Tell all the Bohs you know
    that we've gone and won two-in-a-row
    and it's not gonna be three
    and it's not gonna be four
    it's more likely to be 5-1.

    I always thought of him as a Curry-Cheese-Chips man.

    He's had enough shots alright. I thought the Pun was OK too

    How many has McHugh got for Harps in the first?


    (BTW I wouldn't be so sure about that wiki article as he didn't win the league cupw ith Pats in either of those years, and was with Monaghan in 2010, when apparently he won the LSC with Shels)

    Nothing wrong with your pun.

    But literally when I see the man I think of Curry-Cheese-Chips.

    well Wikipedia isn't the best source for facts, but there isn't a whole lot of information kept of the LOI first division.

    I agree hes had a shot but he didn't take it, which you have to think has a lot to do with choices he has made and little to do with his talent.

    Those choices being Supermacs, Burgerking, Leo Burd...

    Yeah, thought when he started out at Pats he was going to be a good goal poaching striker. Never fulfilled his promise (at that level anyway).
    Out for a spell, got neglected, lay on the bench unselected.

    Hughes has scored 67 goals in 164 First Division appearances since 2006. I don't have reliable stats pre-2006. If what's on Wikipedia is anyway reliable you can take it that he has hit the 100 mark in the First Division. Not bad for a fat bloke.

    In that same period Cummins outperforms Hughes with 72 goals in 135 First Division appearances, 53% hit-rate.

    based on limited stats I've found it looks like McHugh and McLoughlin are likely to be his closest competitors.

    Does anyone have their season by season goals records? Any Finn Harps statisticians out there?

    I think Kevin McHugh has something like 120 goals in first division with Harps. Has I think 150-something goals now for Finn Harps in total. Couldn't tell you how much in the First Division that is though, think he played 2 seasons of those in the Premier.

    Con McLoughlin has scored 110 afaik

    McHugh still counting too, I'd imagine he has another season or so in the first division with Harps, Cummins should most definitely move on this year whether to the Premier with Cork or onto bigger things.

    ah yes, forgot about McHugh, which is odd given that I was wondering where he was last Friday night

    youd wonder whether Hughes moves up a level or finds himself back here with someone else.

    Cummins looks like hes going up but nothing decided yet. Can't see him moving from us at this age and without showing he can do it in the Premier first but he has an incredible rate for a centre half!

    Martin Reilly got 20 in one season for Dundalk although I think he was about for 3 seasons with us, don't know how he faired at other FD clubs pre or post. He would have well over the half century I'd have thought. I thought it was worth mentioning as he was our Philly Hughes before we got Philly Hughes!

    But Reilly spent most of his career at the premier level (with Pats).

    It's pretty good actually. Just make sure you try it near a doctor first (but not in his line of sight, or he might wrestle it from your hands, and throw it away, whereupon it would explode).

    Yeah, they're the bizness, kind of like a posh cheeseburger. A couple of my local "chippers" have added a kind of cheesesteak thing to the menu in the last year or two, is it the same nationwide?

    On the subject of the First Division, my people tell me McLaughlin has 74 FD goals (a lot of his goals were before the 2-division structure came in) and McHugh got 75 FD (plus 5 in play-offs) in his first spell at Harps. So add whatever he's scored since he returned (hard to find a definite figure on that) and you'd have his total.
