Matt Le Tissier is the only footballer who has been known to walk on water and then turn it into wine.

He mainly just stood about on water, hands on hips.

Macpaddy - 03 Dec 2012 19:11:59 (#8 of 959)

Not too surprising that Torres stat, given he was generally on the pitch with either Gerrard or Lampard on hand to grab any penalty oppos. And, of course, CLLC "Dead Eye" Terry.

popstar7 - 09 Dec 2012 23:30:48 (#16 of 959)

Obvious one. Lionel Messi has scored 86 goals this year. Barca still have three games left to play so topping 90 seems quite likely.
