still needs three copies of the yellow pages to set his burglar alarm though.
surely he'll be the best player of all time if he's this good at 22
Then he got fat and crap.
he wants him back.
that Messi doesn't get fat and crap
People say he's good but Rob Green is a much better keeper.
He's not bad.
are lining up a £250m bid as we speak?
'He is quite literally...a magician'
No, he is not quite literally a magician.
I imagine Clive Tyldesly is standing in his living room, covered in wall to wall pictures of Lionel Messi, foaming at the mouth ala the psycho in Alan Partridge.
as much as i hate the misuse of literally, and hyperbole in general... I once almost broke a tv when it sounded like the commentators were ejaculating watching henry.
But with Messi, surely there's not enough that can be said? I mean, I've been watching football my entire life but i'd say only the past five years i can actually give properly informed opinions... and i've never seen anything like Messi. It's like a phenomenon... players like Ronaldo, Kaka etc at their prime aren't even in the same league.
What you are saying is he is the best player of the last 5 years.
but that's about it
and completely likeable too, the anti-ronaldo in terms of manner
jesus christ there was some next level sycophancy going on tonight.
great solo performance. don't think barcelona were at their best. a better team might've taken something. which is quite terrifying really. if arsenal were more precise in the last third they did still make the chances to score 2/3 more goals
mind, if walcott had been played in on that second break, he still would've fluffed it
bring on the wall. I mean, milan
that guy who plays Spiderman, is it Tobey Maguire? Dont ask me why
this little scamp. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fb5FOa3DrkY
in the same way I despise Brazil.
I even hate him for being so apparently likeable.
But Paolo Maldini will always be the greatest player of all time for me.
and messi is astonishingly good but let's not forget that Real are neck and neck in the league and that that is pretty much all Ronaldo
unlike barca and messi. rooney or torres would've had as many goals as christina this season with that kind of service but neither of those are in the running for player of the year
and Alonso somehow covering vast gaps at the base of their midfield.
Ronaldo's got an excellent scoring record for Real this season but when Real have been under pressure or in an adverse position this season, he's tended to either lose his head or start shooting from ridiculous positions.
and scored five fewer goals.
he's "i'm running there, i'm shooting there"
Messi is "right, who can i set up here? Pedro is looking at the corner flag, Bojan is fiddling with his knob. Ah fuck it, i'll just score"
Messi fills me with the joy of football at it's purest form. He's a natural.. he comes from a place beyond normal footballing thought. He's Keanu in the Matrix, except not a douchebag
messi showed an unselfish side to his game by creating space for his team mates that Ronaldo simply doesnt have. I'm not denying Ronaldo's undoubted talent but I agree with douchebag its all about Ronalso - remember last years champions league final?
