Messi needs one more

By Reuters | Mar 20, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 16 ]

Lionel Messi needs one goal to equal the Barcelona scoring record after Cesar Rodriguez’s total was revised to 232 from 235, the La Liga club said. 

Barca’s Documentation and Studies Centre and La Vanguardia newspaper conducted a joint study to verify the number of official goals scored by Rodriguez in the 1950s.  

The study showed he had scored three less than previously thought, Barca said in a statement on their website (www.fcbarcelona.com).  

World Player of the Year Messi, who has 51 goals in all competitions this season, could overhaul the record when Barca host Granada in La Liga later on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old is in his eighth season with Barca.  

“After studying all of Cesar’s matches, it has been confirmed that Messi is only one goal behind,” Barca said.  

“It’s worth noting that Cesar Rodriguez is the club’s all-time top goalscorer in official matches, but the absolute record belongs to Paulino Alcantara, who scored 369 goals in 357 official and friendly matches.”

Oh, just shut your smelling mouth. We are tired of hearing those theories. He will be the greatest football player ever whether you like it or not!

To tell you the truth.. Messi is phenominal, but for me he's not the GREATEST. The reasons being :-

*He hasn't done wonders for his Country(ARGENTINA)
*He's got fellow team-mates that create opprtunities for him to score(Iniesta/Xavi/Pedro..etc)
*He must at least be scruitinized/judged by representing another club/or his country and see if he's able to do what he does @ Barca

Players that i have respect for in football in my generation are:

*Diego Maradona(10) Argentina
*Zico(20) Italy
*Zinedine Zidane(10) France
*Luiz Ronaldo(9) Brazil
*Cristiano Ronaldo(7) Portugal
*Marco Van Basten(11) Holland
*Totto Schillachi (9) Italy
*Lotter Matheus(10) Germany
*Histo Stoitchkov(10) Bulgaria
*Ronaldino(10) Brazil

I once heard that as a kid he suffered from some illness. you know mos those groot woord deseases.
..............................................................................................................................................
He had some deficiency with growth hormones of some sort, and Barca took liberty to pay for his medical biils and treatment to help him grow. and that turned out to be a good investment considering the number of trophies he delivered for them
