2.- The Messi who scored 91 goals in one year.

A lot of experts on the subject will tell you that the best version of Messi came during the 2011-12 season, the whole second half of it and the rest of that year to be more specific.

This was the year in which Leo truly broke all the records, he surpassed Gerd Muller’s mythical number of 73 goals in a full year by scoring an incredible 91 goals.

That year was truly unforgettable for everybody, Messi reached levels of a deity in Barcelona and obviously won the Ballon d’Or while he did it.

We don’t think that any other player in history can score that many goals in a single year ever again, we certainly hope we can see that again but it is nearly impossible.
