I've watched a lot of old Bayern and Germany games. It would be insane for me to know every single goal he scored in every single game.

U MAD that Messi's scoring record is inferior?

Nobody cared/knew about this made up record till recently when the media suddenly went all nuts about it. Fact of the matter is when Muller did this he was not thinking, hey I want to score 85 goals in the calendar year of 1972 or such shit since the calendar year is meaningless in football. Messi on the other hand was on a mission to break this record like it is some kinda milestone that has always been there.
PS: Messi scored 5 against Espanyol so what? He took shitload of penalties with that record on his mind which makes the whole thing plus the ridiculous media coverage about it cheap and low.

Thats because no one came even close to it

And Messi maybe cared about the record the last few weeks when he realized he was close, so yeah why not break it... his goal this year obviously wasnt to break a freaking scoring record... it was to win CL and La Liga... but he failed at both.. he said himself titles are more important for him than records and balon d'ors

And what should he do? Miss all the penalties? Not take them because some haters think it hurts his case? I mean what the hell is wrong with some people?!

It's amazing what HGH can do to a midget footballer.

makes Muller's record all the more amazing considering he didn't need performance enhancing drugs to achieve it.

League 2 side Bradford City takes out Arsenal (64 places higher in the league standings) in a penalty shootout to advance to the semis of the League Cup. Bradford conceded their lead with only a few minutes to go and forced a penalty shootout...unebelievable game and incredible upset.

I wonder why no one here has complained about United getting screwed out of the Young goal, which would have likely ended the game at that point.......oh ya, United always gets the breaks. lol

Gotta love it that United still won though....other teams would have lost or tied and then their fans would have cried foul for a week.

Balotalli to Milan on loan????
I'm not sure how i would feel about that if true. Mario and SES would potentially be a super duo for years to come but seems pretty risky with all the bagage that comes with Balotalli

The Zambia Football Association and the Brazilian team Flamengo both said Wednesday they plan to appeal to FIFA and challenge Lionel Messi's newly minted record of 86 goals in a calendar year.

The Zambia Football Association on Wednesday said it will present evidence to show FIFA that Kabwe Warriors striker Godfrey Chitalu scored 107 goals in 1972, thus beating Lionel Messi's mark for most goals scored in a calendar year, according to reports.

Meanwhile, officials from the Brazilian team Flamengo contend that Zico scored 89 goals in 1979. According to the Brazilian website Lancenet, Zico scored 81 times during the 1979 Flamengo season.

Team research and statistics coordinator Bruno Lucena also told Lancenet that Zico scored seven times for the Brazil national team and once for a Rest of the World XI against Argentina. He missed two months of that 1979 season due to injury.

"We are upset. Messi has not passed his record," Lucena told Lancenet, as quoted in Sambafoot. "If he had played the whole year, it is a certainty that he would have more than 100 goals."

Messi scored two goals at Real Betis this past Sunday to give him 86 goals and best Gerd Muller's officially recognized 40-year-old record of 85.

The Zambian FA said it will challenge Messi's record before FIFA.

Most Goals in Calendar Year
2012 Messi 1972 Muller
Goals 86 85
Games 66 60
Club goals 74 72
Int'l goals 12 13

"We have this record, which has been recorded in Zambian football, but unfortunately it has not been recorded in world football," a Zambia FA spokesperson told the Zambian website Soccer Laduma. "Even as the world has been looking at Lionel Messi's record, breaking Gerd Müller's, the debate and discussion back here has been why Godfrey's goals are not being recognised."

The spokesperson said the Zambia FA has commissioned an independent team to "go back into the archives and record minute-by-minute each of those goals," to appeal to the Confederation of African Football and FIFA, according to a report published in The Guardian.

Chitalu, played for Zambia's national team, before becoming a national coach. He died in 1993 when a plane carrying the team crashed near Gabon.
