Amazing Messi run v Athletic Bilbao on Sunday

I did really think and hope that either Xavi or Iniesta would win World Footballer of the year but the reality is that no one since Maradona can make runs like this into the box. No idea how he didn’t get the call on the foul.

He not only makes runs with the ball like that but if you sit off him he pings in rockets from outside the box. To top it off he’s deadly in close and gets his share of fox in the box type goals like the late winner he scored yesterday (below).

He really is not just the best player in the world but working his way closer and closer to best player ever and getting to see him play on a team like Barcelona is truly one of the joys of life in the 21st century.

    I’ll teach this to my U12s tonight. They should be able to get it just from watching me do it a couple of times. I’m sure next weekend we’ll win 6-0.

    Just to be clear: I mean the going down too easily in the box and the waving tackles, not the dribbling. What are you thinking? I can’t possibly do that.
