Messi, Messi, Messi! Never has that statement been more accurate.

Lionel Messi goes natural hat trick in the 2nd half on Valencia in Barca’s 3-0 win against Los Che.

Touche Wayne Rooney.

    beckham out 9 months with a torn achilles tendon. the injury came at the end of the Chievo match on a non contact play. He left the field in tears.

    Anybody think he’ll hang em up?

      It is a shame – playing in 4 World Cups would have been an impressive achievement. His international career must be over now. Although, I am sure the FA will want him to be in SA in some sort of ambassadorial role – he is too important for our 2018 WC bid.

    Perhaps I spoke a little too soon about the top half of the draw being being easier. If he’s in that form, you’d want to avoid Argentina as well…


    • But the problem with Messi is that he doesn’t recreate that form for the National Team. Whether it’s a lack of a Thierry Henry or Zlatan in Argentina, or a formation and tactical difference, but he just hasn’t reproduced for Maradona’s squad. Given their troubles in qualifying I’m don’t think Argentina are as big of a threat as their individual talent merits.
