Whew, got the ointment on just in time. A little flare-up today on Twitter, courtesy of mainstream media.
Nearly every piece I have read this week labels Lionel Messi the undisputed “best player” in
the world. While I believe Messi to be hands-down the best attacker and offensive player, per my storyline in the article before this–if I had to vote–I would pick Maicon as the best player pound-for-pound in the world right now.
That’s just my opinion.
Here is some other commentary that occurred on Twitter to initiate the discussion of….
“Who’s the best player on the globe heading into the World Cup?”
@shinguardian Take Maicon off Inter and plug in Alves I don’t think they would be any worse. Take Messi off Barcelona and no liga this year.
@shinguardian I absolutely agree that he’s (Maicon) up there. But come on man. Messi is without a doubt the best in the world.
@shinguardian Messi and Maicon being equally important to their team. Maicon was more important to Inter that Messi is to Barca.
