Which club has the record for the most ever goals scored in the Serie A in one particular season?

We currently have 67 goals in 30 matches, so with 8 matches to go we are on track for approximately 85 goals.

Can we break the all-time record, whatever it is?

Torino has the all-time record with 125 goals in 40 games in the season 1947/48 but Milan came close in 1951/52 with 118 in 38 games.

67 at this point of the season is very impressive though from a modern perspective and with the 85 goals you suggest, which isn't at all unrealistic, we'll be the team to have scored most goals in one season since Juve's 92 goals in 1959/60.

We have four tremendous attacking players, the team's core has moved from defence to attack. Compared to last couple of seasons, and even compared to the last five or six years.

Obviously I couldn't compain about our recent history :cool: , but this could mean a somehow different aproach to our game in yrears to come if the three upfront are kept.

With the risk of sounding like an Interista:

We'll take that next year.

That is definately out of reach.


Those numbers are also from the time when games routinely ended 5-3 and defense was an after thought to offense. There were no tactical 1-0 close up the defense matches back then.

True, it seems like things didn't normalize with regards to goals for/against before the 60's. The 30's, 40's and 50's were all about 6-2's and 4-3's.

It used to be tactics were designed around how to score more goals; now tactics are centered around how best to prevent goals. In a sad way it makes sense. You can teach tactics to prevent goals to less skilled players and they can excel at it, but you can't plan for brilliant offensively skilled play if the players can't play it. So, its easier to plan for prevention rather than creation. My opinion, anyway.

The Great Torino of the Fourties gave italian team 10 players out of 11.

If they didn't crash against superga hill in 1949 probably Italy would have a W Cup throphy more, although Uruguay 1950 was a great team.
