Who'll be "Pichichi" 2003?

What do you think? Who will be topscorer in Spain when the current season closes it's doors for the next frustratingly long and cold summer break?

Many big names flew down the river of glory since basconian Sociedad-marksman Bienzobas won the first Pichichi-competition in 1929. Most of them were paid by the (so far) everlasting topdivisioners in spanish football Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Athletic Bibao. Zarra for the basconian side, all time topmarksman in spain by the way, the legendary Di Stefano, the soon as legendary Raúl and mexican record-holder with 38 goals (alongside the already mentioned Zarra) Hugo Sanchez for Real Madrid, austrian football-symbol Krankl as well as 1994 world champion and topscorer of Cruyffs 1992 Barça-DreamTeam Romario, just to name a few of them. But the Pichichi-trophy can also be a target for strikers of smaller clubs. Salva gaining the trophy for Santander, Pahino for Celta and Pizzi for Tenerife are proof to these words. However, conquering the trophy is very tricky given the fact that brazilian Superstar Rivaldo did not make it in 5 years with Barça and 1 with Deportivo.

This season "La Liga" offers us a lot of profilic strikers who are worth being added to that list. I am explicidly thinking of Raúl, Kluivert, Salva, Makaay, Tristan, Ronaldo and Saviola of the spanish Champions league Armada of clubs who happen to be Barça, Real Madrid, Deportivo La Coruna and Valencia. I am also thinking of Victor from Villareal or Catanha from Celta de Vigo.

Personally I've been telling since two years now that "this year's going to be the one of Kluivert" ... it's by the time now!

Kluivert gets my vote ... when he laerns to make the easy ones he could net in 30 times with ease IMO.

If Madrid puts it together soon enough, Raul or Ronaldo should get it.

If not, I think Kovacevic (giving a chance to the smaller clubs) or Saviola. However, it would be so great (and frustrating) if Julio Alvarez got it.

It's a tough call. I'd have to say that it'll be Makaay, Raul or Kluivert. Ronaldo is a bit of a dark horse, but pretty much up there too. I hope Kluivert gets it though.

Roy Makaay.

Urzaiz. Athletic Bilbao have finally got moving.

Yeah, Urzaiz has some chance... if he starts to score against his own goal, he´s a shoo-in

I doubt he'd have the mobility to get back there. I can be optimistic though, Bilbao have some good players. If they begin to get a roll on they could suprise a few teams. They have the quality to compete with the likes of Vigo, Depor etc.

I'll also say Roy Makaay, but either Saviola or Kluivert has also got a nice chance. And Ronaldo always score goals. This season, I don't belive in Raul to be the huge goalscorer...Maybe Ronaldo has got some influence on that...
