I don't know what's all the fuss about Messi Messi Messi ...

Westi, We are not talking Real - Barcelona here , We are taking football so please be logical

With all the respest I have for Maradona , I would like to refresh your memory on something

Maradona:
'Pablo Aimar is the only current footballer I'd pay to watch,' says Diego Maradona of the former River Plate prodigy. 'He's been the best player in Argentina over the last couple of years and is even more talented than Riquelme or Saviola. He's an adorable kid, too. The Valencia fans will idolise him.


I do admit and recognize Messi as a talent but being next to Maradona or being praised at the age of 18 ?

Westi Do you remember Norman whiteside at the age of 17 ? I wish I could find some highlights.
So far all I have seen from messi was a speedy 18 years old who cut in through the defence Diagonally ...
figo (at the age of 18) when they won the World youth Championship was even better

Is messi a free kick specialist ? is Messi a good penalty taker ?
Can messi dribble 3-4 players as Ronaldinho does? Is he a good header?
is he a good finisher and ets etc etc...

he has to prove all these to be a half ass Maradona ....
Bootom line for the time being

His name is bigger than him

Dude take it easy. It ain't no mambo jumbo. You understand why I said that. It's cuz you've always praising Pezes' galactico signing policy. Secondly did you even read the article?Despite what you may have gathered from it, that author isn't making a point about Messi being the next maradona or even the next big thing. I suggest you read it more carefully.

good let's be friends again :--bighug: Don't mind Diego that guy is a crackhead. He's already said aimar, ronaldinho, messi, tevez and god knows who will be his successor. Pele has made even more outrageous statements in past.

Dude we are the best friends. I am just a bit annoyed because of those half ass comment on this and that and beside I am a bit angry today

:--boos: I love you

He means Roberto Carlos I think.

By the way, Del Horno is a very good player but not the best defender! He is far better going forward. Also, I could say the same about Roberto Carlos to an extent. He isnt the best of defenders, and he is past his peak.

Maybe he should try getting past players such as Heinze, Gallas, etc then we will start talking more! ;)

Well hype is something that happens alot in football.

Messi has the potential and Fabregas too. But they also have the ability.

We cant compare SWP to either. I watch English football more than any other league cause the team I support plays there, and I can tell you that although SWP has potential and is a decent player, his main attribute is pace and any player whose main attribute is just pace will always be on thin ground cause you can stop them. He is over-rated and there is no way he is worth more than 8-10 million pounds. He also chose the wrong side to develop at, in my opinion.
