Games to reach 50 goals: 65

That's right, Andy Cole, another Newcastle forward, just pips Shearer to the number one sport by a single game.

The former England forward at one point had a 100% goals-per-game ratio on Tyneside and eventually reached 50 goals in a record 65 games.

He didn't play many more games for the Magpies after that; having reached 55 goals in 69 games, Cole moved to Manchester United in 1995 and scored 121 in 275 games, winning five Premier League titles and of course the Champions League.
