    Balotelli, Aguero and Dzeko = 66 goals
    What? They never play together?

    Like I said, I'm picking the best 3 if they only play 2 and have one on the bench, or, if they play four.

    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.
    Are you sure Neymar will go to Barcelona? Perhaps he fancies Real Madrid?

    And they may well not be.

    Someone said it before, but I think the only front three that will ever be able to beat the 118 goal record is Neymar, Messi and Sanchez.

    It would probably go something like;

    Messi 70
    Sanchez 20
    Neymar 30

    I think Benz, Pipita and Ronaldo will probably hold that record for a very long time if not forever. Also bear in mind they played something like 6 games less than Barca this season and if they continued their average of 2.2 goals a game (between the 3) that equals out at like 13 goals more. So if they played the same amount of games as Barca they could have easily had 131 goals between them.

    The Ronaldo-Benzema-Higuain trio was incredible this season.

    I don't think that record will be broken for a while.

    That sounds devastating on paper as naymars already on a goal a game, in a easier league mind but he's only 20. If in 4 years time he goes barca Messi will be 28 and in his prime (scary) Naymar will be 24 and coming into his prime

    Imagine

    Neymar Messi Ronaldo

    All in their natural positions as well, Ronaldo and messi roaming around the center / right with Naymar on the left. Massive goal orgy as they are all 50 / 60+ goals a season players

    I know their numbers don't stack up, but on sheer interplay and entertainment, Yorke-Cole-Giggs/Solskjaer from 98-99 are up there.

    but that's not a front three, that's a rotating front 2

    Liverpool had some fantastic combinations in the late 80s.

    Ronaldo Rooney Tevez was also fantastic.

    I think the Messi Etoo Henry trio was better than this years Madrid trio, I support RM too so don't hate.

    But Madrid won the league and this front three scored the most goals. Also, they have the best minutes per goal average; ever. Surely that secures them as the best? Although I do think that Messi, Eto and Henry are the second best.

    Im not saying these are the best, but I do miss them a lot!!!



    Henry 38 goals
    Pires 19 goals
    Ljungeberg 10 goals

    67 goals in 2003/04 Invincible's.

    Iceman only got 5 goals, but what a player.

    What if the defences they've been playing against are relatively poor? Put three Heskeys up front in a primary schools league and they'd destroy all records.

    What?? The Spanish League is the second best in the world, in addition, the combination of Eto, Henry and Messi was also situated in Spain... you can't assume the defenders were of a different standard and even if they were, it would prove to be negligible. Hence, my point still stands; Higuain, Benzema and Ronaldo are the best three attackers to ever play together.

    I'll add them to the OP, they were an astonishing front 3. Although, the beauty about the invincible's were how the whole team moulded together to produce some of the most beautiful, elegant football.
