theres a difference between playing well and doing what ronaldinho does and gets applauded for. I will say this, messi at least plays better in games than ronaldinho did. People see the tricks and flicks of ron and he gets voted best player ever......they see a highlights reel of the game and it looks like he beat 11 men on his own.

From the start ive said nothing other than messi will be found out and wont ever be a top top player. In fact ive always gone further to say im not evening going to give my reasons or debate it because just like duff in his prime its fairly hard to be picking faults.....but duff was found out. Found out to be overhyped and talked up too much. Just like robbie keane.

In my view i see nothing in messi, absolutley nothing in him that would make me think he would become world player of the year. Hes too busy in games doing nothing and looking like hes doing something. We played with a guy like that, his name is murph.....when it came to the crunch it was all huff and puff.

Ill return to the long grass.......im not petty enough to keep posting in this because frankly i dont know how ill feel about watching barca this season. But at least start watching games from now on thinking, maybe just maybe hes not that good and watch the misplaced passes, the loss of balls and the poor finishing he has at times.

brilliantly insightful. Peasant punditry at its best.

It's breathtaking that you can still take such a condescending tone to the rest of the forum based on your opinion of Duff yet fail to recollect Reyes, Baros, where Henry will be playing etc etc.

Your misses far outnumber your hits.

reyes didnt fit in? are you doubting his talent? I dont see reyes as a failure in his time at arsenal. His goal scoring record isnt in question either.

I always said with baros that he was my ideal man to play in arsenals frontline. Wheres the problem with that? I rate baros very highly and in the right team would do very well.......baros for me suffered from the same fate i expect torres to have possibly and thats being in the wrong team, playing the wrong tactics.

as for henry and barca? call me romantic, call me blind, call me taking henrys words in late april at face value and believeing them, when he said " no doubt there will be endless speculation again this summer on my depature but im at arsenal and will remain at arsenal for the remainder of my contract"

You have some neck asking whether Reyes' talent is in question, on one hand and criticising Messi on the other.

Is Messi's talent in question?

for me it is.....ive never said for anyone else it aint.
He has done nothing yet to prove to me he will be world class. The more i see him the more i see overhyping of a good player. Major over hyping.

Just to clarify- Reyes talent is not in question but Messi's is?

Is that what you are saying?

reyes mental toughness let him down at arsenal.
i see him being a very important player for real next season but so far has proved fuck all in world football, in fact has been an emotional failure at a big club in england.

but has he proved anything? no. has messi? no.
