Been about a week, but RIP, surprised no thread was created..
Does his record suggest he is possibly the greatest striker of all time?
certainly a legend, one of the greatest of all time from all that i've read and heard....didn't know that he'd passed away...
It has been commented on in the English season thread. RIP. & not really an out-and-out striker, despite the goalscoring record!
Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion
- As featured in The Independent.
"as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
- Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
Probably the lowest profile of all the greats.
To walk into Wembley and embarrass an 'unbeatable' England team threw the British football world into near chaos.
Quite simply for his time he was better than the best and a notch above others with legendary status.

RIP, definite legend. Incredible player.
Awesome player. Had Hungary not inexplicably lost the final against West Germany in Bern in 1954, he would be immortalised alongside Pele and Maradona. He certainly sits with those two names as my three all-time greats.
I've said his record elsewhere exactly but to score over 500 goals in 580ish games is insane in Spain.
RIP, one of the top five footballers ever IMO.

Complete and absolute legend, and it really is sad that he's so criminally underknown by so many people.
