Topscorer of the season 2012/13

The amount of real strikers this year seems to be thinning but still interesting to see who gets the topscorer title. For one I dont hope that Altidore gets, not because of the guy nor because of AZ but it will give people another argument on how weak the Eredivisie is. "He(Altidore) couldnt score to save his life in other competitions and now he is topscorer in Holland".

To be honest there arent many competetors left though. The biggest would be Bony, and for personal reasons I dont want him to be topscorer aswell, even though he is a better striker than Altidore. Chevalier could be this year's suprise with allready reaching 4 goals for RKC, while Locadia could end up winning it, provided he gets the chances to play as a starter. I have added a broad range of strikers because it is still early to leave some players out.

I honestly think Dries will just edge out Matavz and maybe Bony.

Problem with Dries is that he is just so inconsistent so you never know how much he will score.

There are too much away games for Dries to become topscorer and last season he also scored quite a bunch against the small teams, but not against the big guys. Matavz won't feature enough to even score 15 goals this season.

For me Bony is the best striker in Eredivisie so I voted him. Then he doesn't has to leave during the winter break nor getting injured, but that counts for all of course.

There's a good chance Altidore will become the new Vleminckx though, although I think at some point he'll stop scoring, he's in a great shape now but I expect a downfall while Bony is more consistent at a higher level.

Altidore

Derksen keeps saying that Chevalier is a nare jongen. What did he do wrong at Zulte Waregem then? headbutt the coach?

Well I read in an interview he had a lot of troubles with coaches in (mainly) Belgium before he went to RKC, but... so far so good .

Explain to me why Altidore couldn't break through in Bursaspor yet he's ripping the shit up for AZ?

Attacker friendly league here, but he has also improved.

Was more an athlete (in the mould of a Heskey) than anything when he first joined AZ. I doubt the coaches during his loan spells at Hull, Xerez and Bursaspor taught him anything. He now has some footballing skills.

I read an interview in Voetbal International, and he said he didn't even get a chance at Xerez. The trainer said he didn't see Altidore in his plans, even before the first trainer.

As Wally said, Altidore really improved during his time at AZ. He makes many kind of goals now.

It took me a while to figure it out. First I thought Hans Kraaij junior went to Energie Cottbus so I went on voetbalzone to see whether their was any news. There wasnt so I was contemplating what you ment. Het kwartje viel wat laat

But yes, energie Cottbus, the best club in Germany(even though I like Bayern as well)

Altidore doesn't signify how weak the Eredivisie is, I think it shows that Holland has improved him, he's a changed man!

I also voted for Altidore.

Bony is the best striker overall but Havenaar and Reis are bound to take some goals in Arnhem as well.

PSV and Ajax are too inconsistent with their 9's to have a realistic chance while it remains to be seen if Dries can reproduce his form of last season.

Bony said he'd like to leave in the winter so I voted for Jozy since Pellè is not on the list.

I was very impressed by Bony when I first saw him playing in that Czech side, I forgot their name, was it Slavia Prague?

Sparta Prague

He's very mature too for his age. Adapted very quickly to life in the Czech Republic learning English and Czech there in no time.

He also comes from a middle class background. Doesn't always say everything (Gary Lineker for example comes from a working class background) but it usually leads to you having a good head on your shoulders.

Only have to look at Dennis Bergkamp, Gianfranco Zola, Gianluca Vialli or even Graziano Pelle - excellent professionals unlike the likes of Theo Janssen or even though he's lovable Paul Gascoigne.

I think Bony is the best striker in the eredivisie but I lost respect for him when he made a throathcuttin reference to the Nijmegen audience in their 3-2 loss for the playoffs. Even Theo, who was provoked by the audience,which was singing theo theo je moeder is een hoer, didnt let himself go and got his justice when he scored against us.

Bony just scored 3 times for Heerenveen putting him next to Altidore who still has one game against Twente left. Finbogasson scored 2 times putting him at 5.
