12 goals in the UCL in 7 games.

Freak.

Easily the best I have ever seen.

Is Messi in his prime though?

The fact that he's even being mentioned as possibly the best ever at only 24 speaks for itself.

Either way, I'm just happy I get to watch him play.

He has quick feet and legs, lower centre of gravity (would have been more without HGH) and has an awesome dribble close to his body.

You can make him go to his right sure, but he'll eventually get past you again on his left. He also gets protected by the refs, more so than Ronaldo does.

The movement of the Barca players makes this extremely difficult.

You can shut down Messi playing for Argentina, you can't shut him down playing for Barca.

Arguably because he isn't known for diving, as opposed to Ronaldo.

Without doubt, doesn't make it right though. A ref should be unbiased in every decision they make.

The argument that you single handedly have to win a WC to be the best player ever isn't valid any more IMO

Comparing the defence of teams in 86 to now, it's much more of a zone defence where you have 2-3 players on you at any given time, especially if you're a player like messi, ronaldo etc. You need to have a great team around you to penetrate and score goals.

The game is much more defensive, and compact.

Pfft, it's what every proper football player wants most of all. A WC/Euro title.

Even though international football has suffered, and it's not as technical as club football, it's still fucking awesome to watch your team in a WC. National pride is still very much alive.

International football not relevant? Go to Europe or South America when a major tournament is on and then come back and say that. It's fucking insane and in Europe a Euro win is amazing and often regarded as a higher achievement than the WC. However, the WC holds more prestige.

hrmmmm.... glimmer of hope... we've taken 1 of the handful of chances... just need 1 more... napoli have threatened once or twice and we've handled it... need to keep it the same and hopefully get the 2nd important goal... we've never come back from 2 goals down in the first leg... only 1 goal is the most we've pegged back
