Barca looked stale in the second half being constantly attacked by Zaragoza's defence. Messi got tired, stole the ball himself, skipped past a sliding tackle, sprinted to the box, embarassed the a defender with his weaving run inside the box and scored his second goal. The he scored outside the box to finish off his hat-trick.
When Zaragoza tried to mount a come-back scoring 2 goals in the span of five minutes, the following minute Messi embarassed the defence with his zig zag dribbling into the box and got pulled down to earn a penalty. He allowed Zlatan to end his goal draught.
If this man is stopped then it will be a crime to football.
After Ronaldo 9, he is probably the best damn thing I've ever seen play.. No he can't be stopped, he just cant be stopped, in a good day you best just let him score on you cause if not he'll beat all your defenders and score..... It either his way or his way..
I haven't seen anything like him, its not only the quantity, its the quality of the goals, its everything.. Its how much he scores, and how he scores them, beating 1-2 players and placing it in that corner, its something that a good player does 3-4 times in a season and everybody is like " OH WHAT A GOAL", Messi does this every week..
If he plays like this in Argentina I would happilly admit that people should surrender in advance, but sometimes he doesn't do such thing..
My relationship with Messi is a love/hate..
I hate him, because he always spoils Manchester united's chances for trophy winning as a club, or as individuals.. Last year he spoiled Cr7's chances of winning Ballon d'or, Fifa PLayer of the Year, etc. He also spoiled our chances of winning the Champions League, though he owes a lot to barcelona... Now its Rooney, I think he already has 1 more goal than rooney, having scored 8 in the last 3 matches helped a lot.. Rooney has solid chances of winning individual trophies this year, If Messi spoils him again im gonna have to punch some one...
On the other hand, I love Argentina as a team, and when an Argentinian socres in Europe, I always yell those goals much louder, I always keep track of how they are doing in Europe, and I watch Boca, and River games when I have the chances.. I love the culture, I love that they are days outside of the stadium waiting to buy tikcet, I love how the country paralizes when Argentina plays, I love that they love football, and any argetinian player I like in general, except Tevez at times, haha.
So thats my story with Messi.
Messi has the example of Ronaldinho, and Maradona to avoid.
