Just the tip...
Anyone see that? Unreal, digging Barca out a hole again. They’ve been terrible again but he pops up with that moment of magic.
Don’t know how legitimate it is but there were reports coming out of Spain that he’s won it, that was accompanied by the bookies suddenly making him the odds on favourite.He is the best player I have ever seen and if he doesn't win the Ballon d'or tomorrow then it is a travesty.
Pulled off some really good saves but the commentator (Premier Sports) was having a chug at each one. Banks and Pele was mentioned ffs. And the 1st save, off his inner thigh was not exactly genius but he had the sock out for that too.Unlucky mate, napoli burst mine. Barca keeper was your enemy there, pulled off Shaggeresque saves
unlucky although I would say I’d be staying well clear of Napoli with this fallout with the owner seems they aren’t as up for it ! Had a few close calls hopefully the sign of a winner coming soonUnlucky mate, napoli burst mine. Barca keeper was your enemy there, pulled off Shaggeresque saves

Graham Hunter. Really good sports writer, horrendous commentator. Sheep shagger too.Who is the guy with the plummy Scots accent on these broadcasts.Never heard as much waffle in my life.Deciphers every minute detail as if it's a game of Chess."I think I would be asking Messi to work a bit harder there"as the wee man is caught between Two fuckin giants at a corner kick.BBC Sportsceene awaits.
Same happened the season Salah had a blinder for Liverpool. He was so good, especially compared to any other season in his career, 47 goals, etc, that loads of folk expected him to win the Ballon D'or. By comparison, everyone was saying Messi had had a relatively poor season by his standard and was perhaps starting to show he's on the road down, etc.He’s a victim of his own greatness. If anyone else had a year like he’s had their would be no question who’s winning balon d or but because he’s had 10 plus seasons as good he’s held to a different standard. Never thought I’d see anybody better than Maradona but this guy is far an away the GOAT
Jesus H ChristI see Messi has been bet out the park to win this tonight, and rightly so.
You will get the usual meltdowns tonight about how it is a fix and the experts giving it "what has Messi done this year".
The problem is that because La Liga is no longer on Sky, people tend to forget just how devastating he is.
Last night was his 30th goal v Atletico Madrid in 35 games. Unbelievable.
Ridiculous considering all 4 of them are some of the best teams in La liga. Normally you'd expect some cannon fodder team like Hamilton-esque to be up there, not teams like Real Madrid ffs.This is his top 4 record agonst Spanish teams he has scored against:
Is there a reason for that? Does he play those teams more(due to cups etc) than he does the cannon fodder teams or something?That's my point. It is often levied at him (and Ronaldo) that their goals records are so high because they batter goals in against the cannon fodder in La Liga.
