Rants and musings from the magazine team
The Flea jumps over the Bomber: Leo Messi has overtaken Gerd Muller's record for goals in a calendar year. We looked into the two remarkable years and found some eyebrow-raising

bagged more hat-tricks; how Muller was better in spring and Messi in
autumn; and why international teams feared them...
UPDATE, Sunday 16 December: Yet another double for Messi means we've tweaked the stats once more. We'll be needing a new set of crayons for Christmas.
