I may well have missed this or be wrong as I'm not sure how accurate the all-time table is but I believe that Everton are only 16 goals away from being the first club in world football to score 7,000 league goals.
If this has been missed surely this is a good promotional opportunity for Everton? Who's going to get the 7,000th goal?

It's something the Club are going have to promote in player and manager interviews.

Because La Liga started in 1920s, we are ahead of Real and Barcelona (both less than 6100 league goals):
On the other hand, we have that Celtic scored more than 10000 league goals, Rangers almost 10000 and Hearts around 7500 league goals:
Juventus scored just above 6000 league goals and River Plate around 6800.

Given the relatively easy league Celtic and Rangers, and to an extent, certainly down the years, Barcelona and Real Madrid are in, I would have thought those clubs would have been nearer or surpassed 7,000 goals.
I will assume Steve meant in the English Football League.

I couldn't agree more. But when it happens (surely it will? Surely we can score another 16 goals this season?), it will hopefully get mentioned in some media outlets. When it does, the resulting reaction from the RS will, I'm sure, be fun to behold.
On the strength of that, I shall mention it at every possible opportunity!

That reminder extending to our current custodians, as this might be the last landmark we reach before anyone else, if we don't start winning things again.

We would have been the first to concede 8,000 though.
