Usually I'm not really one to jump on this sort of thing, but with Marcotti, Cox, Wilson, Horncastle, and Kay it definitely caught my attention


Edit: Also I'll be honest: the potential for some goal-legacy temper-tantrums is astronomical banana

Gorcuff, Andre Ayew and Forlan ahead of Benzema....

Not that it's neccessary but there you go

Karim 2011 for Real Madrid.

3180 minutes played : 160 shots : 35 goals : 15 assists.

Goal/Assist every 63.6 minutes

Stats according to
http://www.realmadrid.com/cs/Satellite/en/1193041476158/1202775163178/jugador/Jugador/Benzema.htm and
http://www.soccerway.com/players/karim-benzema/1595/matches/

I think this ends this thread.
