    And 11 is very close. 8 goals in 3 games? Possible.

    Messi will be top 3 in football history before the end of the year, maybe even before the end of next month, he need 15 more goals.

    Most official goals scored in one club

    646 Pele Santos FC
    564 Gerd Muller Bayern Munich
    534 Josef Bican Slavia Prague
    525 Fernando Peyroteo Sporting Lisbon
    522 Jimmy McGrory Celtic
    519 Lionel Messi FC Barcelona
    485 Uwe Seeler Hamburger SV
    473 Eusebio Benfica
    469 Franz Binder Rapid Vienna

    thats unrealistic, even for messi. he's 30 now. he's not going to score 180 goals in the next two seasons (90 each, etc). he can get to 700, but maybe by 34, assuming he does not decline sharply

    He's on 577 right now counting the NT goals, so thats 123 to get to 700 not 180.

    that would still require some 62 goals per season, or some weird 50-70 split. i don't see it happening. messi can get 50 or 55 this season and the next, and even that would be mind boggling (frankly anything 40+ is absurd). but two 60s in a row? thats unreasonable

    Its not happening before he turns 32 but perhaps when he still is 32, so before he turns 33.

    Don't believe that Messi will crack the 500 goal mark, he's not an out and out striker, as he ages he will just become more and more of a creator. I expect him to get around 450.

    To be honest, I didn't even expect him to reach 350 so all bets are off as far as I'm concerned. I think it will be more a question if he is abel to motivate himself to go on for another 7-8 seasons. He only needs 15 goals on average for the next 8 years to hit 500, Imo not unresonable at all if he does 3-4 seasons more in the 20-25 range.

    Might not reach Peles 541 or even 500 league goals for that matter but he will definitely break Peles 757 total goal tally unless he suffers serious injuries.
