INFO:
Briggs was a centre forward, one of the most prolific in English football in 1950s and a legend for both Grimsby Town and Blackburn Rovers. His career started at Plymouth Argyle in 1946. He transferred to Grimsby Town in 1947 and scored 78 goals in 116 matches in three seasons. After two seasons spent at Coventry City and Birmingham City, with which he scored a total of 29 goals in 61 games, he joined Blackburn Rovers. He scored for Blackburn 140 goals in 194 matches between 1952 and 1957 and he's still one of the team's top scorers. He retired in 1960 after a season at Glentoran as player/manager. He also capped one for England B and he also scored in that single match. Briggs was a strong free-scoring striker, not tactically clever but phenomenal near the goal, gifted with great finalizing ability and able to score with both feet as well as with the head. He holds the record for more goals scored in a single match for Blackburn Rovers, having scored 7 times in a 8-3 win against Bristol Rovers on 5th February 1955.

I would say he's overrated in every aspect because this whole period he played in second division. With these stats, he could have been an international.

Mh you're right, I didn't count that at all, my bad. I'll make a general decrease.
