Gerd Muller RIP

Recommended Posts

Has there even been a more deadly striker ? 
 

He might have not done much else on the pitch but as they say sticking the ball in the net is the hardest thing to do

RIP Der Bomber, one of the true greats of the game. Amazing positional awareness and instinct in the penalty area, and barely anything of note outside of it.

Saw him play as a an extra defensive midfielder in Bayern's team in ECWC game at Anfield in 1971. They took no chances that night but won the second leg 3-1 .....and he scored.

Need to put up some NSFW tags.

 

That West Germany goal record is obscene and some of us use the forum at work.

Obviously his scoring record at every level was amazing but check out that goals per game ratio at 1861 Nordlingen.

 

31 Appearances, 51 goals. 
 

Probably didn’t take a scouting genius to spot his potential.

FSG would have bought his cheaper less prolific team-mate, like they did with Haaland.

Sensational striker and one of my draft picks for best striker outside our own club. I modelled myself on him as a kid and was a prize goalhanger who took the glory on the school playground.

Out of rep but belated congratulations on your playground scoring feats.
