Robert Lewandowski – Magic Man

Frank Beavis talks about the man of the moment, Robert Lewandowski, and his recent goal scoring exploits.

Robert Lewandowski is possibly Europe’s most on-fire striker right now. After a truly record breaking week, people are beginning to question whether he can actually be stopped this season.

It took simply nine minutes for Bayern Munich’s resident goal machine, Robert Lewandowski, to destroy almost every goal scoring record in the book. In one magical spell last weekend, the Bayern Munich front man became the first player to score five off the bench, whilst scoring the quickest hat-trick and becoming the fastest to net four and five goals in a single match. A brace in the 3-0 win over Mainz this previous Saturday took Lewandowski beyond 100 goals in the Bundesliga, this made him the fastest foreign player to do so in the league’s history. Also this season, he surpassed Gerd Müller’s record of being the fastest player to score 10 goals consecutively; for his nation of Poland, he scored the quickest hat-trick in qualifying history against Georgia in June.  If he continues at the rate his going, he should match what is perhaps the most iconic record at Bayern Munich: Gerd Müller’s ’40 goal season’ in the 1971/72 campaign.

A key figure in Polish football, he will easily secure legend status for his club at the rate he is going. He is a complete forward, being two footed and having the ability to also score with his head. His attacking positioning ensures that he gets into the required positions to score goals in every game he features, he could well break every Bundesliga goal scoring record in the book this season! The question that remains is, can he continue the form he is in right now? We’ll see at the end of the season…
