Messi - wow

Post by Geezaldinho on Tue Apr 06, 2010 11:16 pm

The youtube of Lionel Messi's 4 goal game against Arsenal just went up



This is his fourth hat trick of the 2010 campaign. (this one a four-goaler)

I don't think I can ever remember a player having a year like this.

Nice find.

Gotta love a guy who uses " assiduously eschews" in a sports article and pulls it off.

Stoney, did you see how he spelt "defence"?

Interesting take here:

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/marcela_morayaraujo/04/15/araujo.messi/

great stuff. comparisons to Pele, Maradona, and Cruyf, references to Jorge Luis Borges (my favorite author) and his place in Futbol's Pantheon.

We are only four months into the new year. I'm looking forward to the rest of it.
