    With his hat trick today Lewandowski has overtaken Suarez but is 220 goals behind Messi and 274 behind Ronaldo.

    The 5 active players on the list are on to achieving 3000+ goals between them by end of this season.

    For the players on list still playing (BOLDED) there are 11 matches still to play between them this season but 41 goals still to score to make it 3000 goals between them total.
    Doubt they will make it.

    5 years ago when i started this thread Ronaldo was 10 goals short of Jimmy McGrory's total but now is 209 goals ahead of him so he has averaged just over 42 goals a season in the last 5 seasons.
    If he keeps that rate up he will be just a few goals short of topping the list by end of next season

    Great work as usual my man, legend. I’ve seen a few conflicting articles this season and even juve tweeting ronaldo broke the all time goal scoring record? But then also seen the same number you’ve posted for bican. Does anyone know the exact legitimate number?

    and do you think messi will overtake ronaldo in the goal scoring or if/even ronaldo will break that 806 mark?

    Ronaldo needs 47 goals in top flight and internationals to go top so could do it by end of next season since Euros start shortly.
    Bican result is genuine. Messi needs to play at least 1 season more than Ronaldo once Ronaldo retires to better him.

    When i started the thread i verified Messi and Ronaldo's scores from different sources then just updated them after each match. If i missed a couple of updates i just looked at the date of last update then added the goals from there.
    Easy to do.
    The Celtic one that i updated for appearances, i sourced from the 125 years of Celtic book which has every match played for Celtics first 125 years.

    Since the start date of the Group stages of the Euros these are goal scoring stats for all the competitors on the list playing in Euros 2020 and Copa America

    1) Cristiano Ronaldo - Played 3 Scored 5
    2) Robert Lewandowski - Played 3 Scored 3
    3) Luis Suarez - Played 2 Scored 1
    4) Lionel Messi - Played 3 Scored 1
    5) Zlatan Ibrahimovic - Played 0 Goals 0 (Obviously, as out of comp due to injury)

    Said he would win golden boot. Last tournament, age and its a Ronaldo thing to do. Although may see him in his final world cup next year aswel.

    Can see his decline clearly now though. A couple times he has tried to kick it by the guy and run but his pace and acceleration isn't there anymore. Infact iv not seen him beat a man yet, not that it matters since he will score anyway :56:

    Ronaldo on 5 and Lukaku on 3 so 1 of them i think will win Golden Boot but Portugal play Belgium next. This match might decide it.

    Usually it’s about 5/6 that gets you it, can’t see by Ronaldo for it now.

    long as Lukaku is one of the top five cos apparently each way on Paddy Power pays out the top five.

    So Immobile better be there anaw.

    Thinking of Roanldo and Messi.
    Combined they have scored 54 more competitive goals than our top 5 scorers combined when playing for Celtic.
    Their 1485 to our 1431
