This article presents an algorithm, which by taking both goals scored as well as matches played into account, is meant to provide \more sensible" top scorer lists in football. The algorithm computes Upper Hulls recursively in order to provide a new and improved list. The complexity of the algorithm is reasonable, and should imply practically feasible execution on a modern computer. The proposed algorithm may also be an interesting alternative to academic scholar ranking. It has interesting properties for instance compared to the h-index.
