Possibly one of the best goals of all time?
It's better than Maradona vs England.
its pretty great, although some might point out that it wasn't against the greatest team in the world.
This goal is better though
you what, even in slow motion you can tell messi is going at some pace. I love the way he shows the keeper the ball before jinking around him
I think this is every bit as good as maradonas
Ibrahimovic's was better
but devalued by the fact its against Breda.
I like this one he scored against Roma
how old is the kid....19 or 20 isnt he...how can you score a goal like that and a hat trick against madrid at such a young age...and be overrated????
In their teens Riquelme and D'Alessandro (and Aimar and Ortega etc etc) were never as good as Messi and they weren't playing in Europe either. I think if he stays injury free then he has the potential to be the best player in the world.
an amazing goal - no doubt about that, but you have to consider the occasion. It was in the Copa Del Rey, which is Spain's equivalent of the Carling Cup, so you can't really compare with Maradona's in a World Cup quarter final.
plus how many Barca games do you actually watch?
He did nothing in the World Cup? He barely played:
16 mins against Serbia
69 mins against Holland (when both sides had qualified and couldn't be bothered)
36 mins against Mexico (he scored a wrongly disallowed goal)
Not exactly a lot of time to show his worth, especially when recovering from an injury.
Unless you've watched the majority of Barca games from the last two seasons then I don't think you can call him inconsistent or overrated.
