I suspect that is meant to be League goals.

For once even the Guardian got it right

Bob may have misquoted, but clearly this is league goals. 

Nitpicking either way, as the achievement is incredible.

Surely the club has to bring Tammy back nest season, and give him a genuine opportunity? 

If they don't, I am not sure what else he is supposed to do.

Think it depends who is the manager (Sarri or Lampard?) and how big of a success Higuain proves to be.

Cracking.  First was best but I loved the 2nd where he is determined to stop the ball dead then shoot rather than flick it first time.  He stamps on the ball so sharply it lifts vertically and he scores with his head.  Not quite what he meant, but it was the "I own this ball" that I loved.  That and the run into space which gave him the options.

My guess is that the Derby players are getting the hang of just what a threat he can be.

But Derby are still 8th and will find getting a play off place difficult (they were 6th a year ago).

I doubt it, there has not been a Championship striker to take there goal scoring record from that level to the Premier League since Kevin Phillips and he was in his mid-20's when he did that. For me, Abraham will be out on loan against next season at a PL club, alongside Ampadu and Mount. People may think that is unfair, but I would rather that than have him come back here next season, kick his heels on the bench and then insist on a transfer away. Additionally, I think it is crazy that he did not get loaned to a Cardiff or Huddersfield this season as he would have started every game for those clubs. That said, if we do not get our ban lifted then I fully expect him back.

Agreed.  Or at least torn between very much wanting to see James and Abraham in a Chelsea shirt, and looking after their best long term interests.
His loan this season was very last minute, and perhaps there was talk of Higuain for Morata earlier and thoughts of keeping a younger striker as well, and then PL opportunities were missed.  But then his PL loan to a relegated club last season did not work out well, and I think Villa has been a good option for him this season.

As for other Championship high scorers, very few have been 21, and very few have been high scorers in he Championship twice in their career already, and very few of them already have some PL experience.  And none of them had Abraham's talent.  So I agree the step up is significant, but I still have high hopes Tammy will make it sooner or later.

Besides if there is one thing this team is missing it is a 6 yard box finisher, who really makes an effort.  We all know how this one ends up with Girioud, Higuain or Morata in the same position
