    118 goals. 44 assists. 2011/2012

    *They also have the best minutes-per goal ratio.

    Who agrees?

    Edit; other great front 3's;

    Pedro, Messi and Sanchez = 101 goals
    Henry, Messi and Eto = 100 goals
    Benzema, Ronaldo and Higuain = 92 goals <<<<
    Tevez, Ronaldo and Rooney = 79 goals
    Gomez, Robben and Ribery = 76 goals
    Drogba, Malouda and Anelka = 67 goals
    Ljungeberg, Pires and Henry = 67 goals
    Balotelli, Aguero and Dzeko = 66 goals

    I suspect Gerd Muller, Uli Hoeneb and another Munich forward got around 80 goals in 1972-1973

    This excludes a hell of a lot of teams that play with a front four.

    Pick the 3 best from that four, bet they don't triumph these guys. Also, find me a front four that have scored more goals.

    that Real Madrid side is ridiculously good.

    The amount of goals they score is scary.

    Well Henry, Eto and Messi managed to score 100 a couple of seasons ago... but if Villa wasn't injured this season, along with Mess's goal tally, they probably could have beat Madrid.

    100 goals, I think.

    See, I disagree with this because this year they have focused on Messi. For example, they have played the ball through to him and allowed him to play the more CF role. Whereas, if Villa would've been fit, he would've sat back a lot more and claimed more assists rather than goals.

    I'd of predicted;

    Sanchez = 15
    Messi = 60
    Villa = 30

    Probably fairest to compare the front three to all front threes in the league that year, since they'd be against (pretty much) the same defences.

    Based on numbers alone, you're probably right. I can't remember a front 3 that scored more goals, and that's digging through a few seasons where I remember teams that just dominated. La Liga traditionally has more goals scored in a season than other leagues, and Real Madrid 11/12 holds the record at 121 this year. Unreal how we just witnessed history.

    Although they might be the best front 3, my personal favorite will be:

    Ronaldinho - Eto'o - Giuly

    Ronaldinho in his prime was more entertaining than Ronaldo or Messi will ever be. :moon:

    It's not a current front three but Neymar-Messi-Sanchez at Barca in a few years time is a tantalising prospect and will surely stake a claim for the best front three in ten years or so.
