Enjoy it while you can
Forget all the rubbish about La Liga (Spain) being a two club league or that he couldn't do it at Stoke on a wet Monday night let's just enjoy the fact that Lionel Messi has broken Gerd Muller's forty year old record and has scored 86 goals in a calendar year (so far).
Sporting 'greats' are often either overrated or undervalued during their careers and the fact that we are living in a time when there are so many average players earning shedloads of cash should make last nights record breaking goals a source of pleasure not cynicism.
Of course Messi couldn't have done it without his team mates, something that he is quick to acknowledge, any more than Muller could have done it without being part of a Bayern Munich side that won three European Cups back to back (to back) and were also conquerors of all before them.
