A new record

Barcelona players congratulating Lionel Messi after breaking Gerd Müller’s record. 86 goals in 2012, what a legend!

Congratulations to all Barcelona and Messi fans.

New world record!

Record breaker!

Yes, he did it! Lionel Messi broke German great Gerd Müller’s 40-year-old record for most goals in a year by scoring for the 86th time in 2012 today. Messi has scored 74 goals for Barcelona and 12 times for Argentina this year, and he has three more games in which he can add to his tally before the end of the year. Müller scored 85 for Bayern Munich and West Germany.

All of this comes after the 25-year-old Messi passed Brazil great Pele’s single-season milestone of 75 goals for Brazil and Santos in 1958 with his 75th and 76th goals of the year on Nov. 11 to move into second place behind Mueller.

Of course, even though he has passed both legends (Pele and Mueller), they are still (in my opinion) far greater than him, because football back then was not the same as it is now, it was much harder to score goals, and both Pele and Mueller did not have Xavi and Iniesta by their sides. Certainly what I am saying does not mean  that Messi is not an amazing player, a legend, but all I am saying is that in my personal opinion, players like Pele, Maradona and Müller  can not be compared to anyone, even the great Messi.
