The ridiculous accomplishments this season continue to pile up and are worthy of their own thread, particularly now that he's passed 50 goals for the club (and in doing so passed Skacel on the goals list).

 

The other one I posted in another thread was that out of the last 18 competitive matches, there are just 3 that Shankland hasn't scored in for us.

Also, here's one that can get updated on the regular.

That Kyogo chap is rated at £20mil …..  Love to put that to one of the weeg pundits and ask how come they rate Shanks at 2-3mil ……. There would be no logical answer but a lot of weegie spaff.

Shanks today got to 24 goals in 33 competitive appearances for Hearts this season. That's a tremendous goal per game ratio.

 

What makes this even more impresive is that this includes an 8 game stretch where he didn't score. He scored in the home loss to PAOK (a pen) on 24 August. Across 6 league games, one LC game (the win at Kilmarnock), and the away loss to PAOK, he didn't score until 22 October when he scored in the loss at home to Celtic.

 

Outside of that 8 game stretch, that puts him on 24 goals in 26 games.

You just know they’ll give player of the season to Callum McGregor or something…

Something a wee bit different, but think Shanks has also cleared the ball off the line 3 or 4 times this season for us whilst back defending. 

 

Some amount of points he has got us this season.

Only scored 1 goal in his first 8 league games this season too

13 goals in his last 11 games.

 

Has scored against all 14 Scottish sides he's faced during his time with Hearts.  And scored against 4 of the 6 European sides he's faced.  Istanbul and Fiorentina are the only teams he's not managed a goal against.

 

52 goals for Hearts now, making him joint 36th top scorer in our history.

 

In terms of recent history, he's now just two goals short of Jamie Walker's 54 scored across 240 games.  Seven short of Colin Cameron's 59 across 189 games.  And twelve short of Gary Mackay's 64 across 640 games.  Robbo the only other to have played since the 1980's with more Hearts goals than him.

I think the biggest significant leap forward not represented in stats in Shanks game has been the leadership role he has taken on. The way he put an arm on Halketts shoulder when he was going off injured just showed true captain material. 
 

Gordon may be club captain and a brilliant one at that but Shanks is 100% the on field club captain and leader. 
 

He needs to realise he won’t get this elsewhere.

Mad how folk on here were not convinced he would be any good before we signed him!

 

Where would we be without him now?

100%
 

Whichever bigot brother wins the league. Doesn’t matter if Shanks got to 40 goals and win the Scottish cup. It’ll be McGregor or Butland, I’d put money on it.

Not a better finisher in the league he scores all types of goals and didn’t realise how good he was with his head lethal. 
What a goal scorer he is incredible

I'd never right-off a player without giving them time to settle, and definitely not before they'd even joined us, but I think given his history in the league and the form he'd been showing for his previous club wasn't that of a prolific goal scorer (all be it playing out of position I think), it was reasonably fair for people to be slightly sceptical that he'd be the striker we had been needing.

 

I don't think anyone would have expected him to be as good as he has become.

It's crazy to think he went practically 2 months without a single goal!

Imagine if he didn't have that drought.

Mentioned it a couple of times on different threads but I think his first last night was his 200th senior career goal.

It's not just the goals it's the nature of them.All different types and many absolute quality even the ones you think are simple they are all beautifully taken.

I had to look this up as I didn't believe it. 

 

Kyogo doesn't look 29 at all. Honestly thought he was in his early 20s. Maybe explains as to why no one came in for him.

That Belgian mob must be wondering WTF they did wrong. Cheers for the cut price deal, chaps.

I watched Shankland talking about his time in Belgium, he said the boy that signed him got sacked by the new manager played him as a right back

You haven't shown the bit where he's beaten by the metal 'defender'  🙂

Hibs are buying four of these metal defenders. Cheaper and same effect 😜

What's worse, is those that wanted him benched at the start of the season. After seeing what he contributed last year too. Mental
