The Players With The Most Career Goals In Soccer History

This list for the players with the most career goals in the history of soccer stretches from players who played in the early 1900s to the present day. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi score at an unprecedented rate in today’s game, but there are those from history whose rate of scoring was even more impressive.

The Guinness World Record for the most goals scored in a specified period is 1,281 by the Brazilian great Pele, born Edson Arantes do Nascimento.

Chronicles Of The Crest: Manchester United

The Manchester United crest is a symbol recognized around the world. Here’s a look at its evolution.

Founded in 1878, the club was originally called “Newton Heath L&YR F.C.” and their colors were yellow and green.

The team was created by the department of railway depots and the players were railroad workers.

In 1902 the club was officially renamed “Manchester United.”

Their new crest was taken from the Manchester coat of arms.

By the 1940’s the logo we know today began to take shape. 

The center shield featured a ship and a devil.

Chronicles Of The Crest: AFC Ajax

On the morning of March 18, 1900, Floris Stempel created Football Club Ajax. Quite rare that time in sports, the team launched with their first graphic emblem.

The team's first logo featured an Ajax football player in the center of a circle, with the words "AMST. FOOTBALL-CLUB AJAX" around the outer ring.

The logo changed 11 years later when the team earned their first Erste Klasse title and moved to the top division.

Designers painted the shorts white and added a verticle red stripe to the T-Shirt. In 1928 the owners decided to associate the emblem with the name.
