Messi Gets Goal #90

Lionel Messi added two more goals over the weekend in La Liga to bring his total of goals scored this calendar year to 90. We were waiting just a couple weeks ago to see if he would break the record that stood from 1972.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho – who labels himself the special one – has been reported as saying that Barcelona are too far ahead in the Spanish league for his team to catch for the title.

Only time will tell if that prediction holds true but so far Barca have been relentless in their pursuit of their first league title since Tito Vilanova took over managerial duties from the hugely successful Josep Guardiola.
