Messi sets all-time goalscoring record

STRANGE it should come in a season when by their own exacting standards Barcelona have unravelled somewhat – but tonight Lionel Messi set the all-time goalscoring record.
It has been on the cards for a while – and last season I thought it might be about to happen, with Messi then close to usurping legends like Dixie Dean.
But tonight, via the medium of Gary Lineker’s Twitter account, I heard the news.
Take it Gary: “With 3 goals tonight, Messi with 71 goals has more goals in one season than any player in any league, anywhere, any time ever!”
Since then, Messi added another in an undoing of Espanyol – taking his tally to 72 goals in a season.
Messi, I’ve said it before and I’ll no doubt say it again – Goaltastic salutes you.
Wowsers.
