“>Thierry Henry Barcelona Analysis
Everyone knows the best player in the world is also pretty diminutive. Everyone also knows that second best player in the world is an absolute specimen of human and a bit taller. The great part about this information is that soccer has no definitions of height specifically of linked to world-class footballers. That’s why anyone can play and anyone can be successful. So I pitch this out to you… which team would you choose if you had to take only players over six feet tall or only those under 5′ 8?” The decision would be tough but I can tell you this, I would pay an incredible sum of money to watch this game go down.
Hopefully you all are not lost under a rock and blinded from the majesty of Lionel Messi. If you have been, unearth yourself to this video below. All 400 of Messi’s goals for Barcelona are contained in 30 minutes of joy. Can he score 400 more before the end of his career?
I’d like to sit here and make a factual statement, “The Bundesliga is more exciting to watch than the Premier League.” (ok, not all that factual but still a valid opinion) GOALS ON GOALS ON GOALS. Let’s run through a few to start continue to help facilitate your drooling stupor on this lovely Monday:
Suarez continues to show that he is World Class: He takes his bike to work
Even Giroud showed a touch of class: Left magic roofed volley
Zlatan was a judo champion: Exhibit A
Robben is fast, Bayern wins 8-0: His technique is ridiculous
Dost was on another planet on Saturday (4 goals):
In other news:
Cristian Ronaldo still knows how to hurt people’s ankles: Elastico Nutmeg anyone?
Zlatan Ibrahimovic has a soul. He sports temporary tattoos that are names of children that are going hungry as past of his campaign with World Food Program
Messi equals most hattricks eve in the history of Spanish football (Legend)
West Brom made West Ham look mediocre at best
Stoke also got the run around from Blackburn
Lastly, Preston North End hosts Manchester United in the FA Cup today….United will need to stop this:
It’s always important to enjoy the weekend’s goals but it is not always easy to see the best ones. Some of us have commitments to things that create a schedule that we like to call life. So for those who missed some of these on the weekend, take a look below…
Senor Pogba – Juventus vs Napoli
Francesco Totti – Roma vs Lazio
Alexis Sanchez – Arsenal vs Stoke
Luis Suarez – Barcelona vs Atletico Mardrid
Arturo Vidal – Juventus vs Napoli
Ian Henderson – Rochdale
Tadic – Southampton vs Manchester United
Messi – Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid
Tanaka – Sporting CP
Just to clarify that Neymar is not always faking injury, check out his ankle after a tackle on the weekend:
Lionel Messi kicks the ball 60 feet into the air and then continues juggling to prove he is superhuman. This video also proves how incredibly weird Japanese game shows are. It just goes to show you there are two constants in this world: Messi is an alien and Japanese gameshows are the weirdest shows on television.
With the announcement of the FIFA Ballon d’Or shortlist today, the spotlight again falls on two of football’s current greats, four time winner, Lionel Messi and two time winner and current holder of the title, Cristiano Ronaldo. But how do the pair compare off the pitch?
This is a very interesting study and it is astounding how much each player’s social media pages are worth. Cristiano Ronaldo may not be better than Messi, depending on who you ask, but his social media prowess is second to none in the soccer world. He knows what he’s doing. It also helps that he has a more marketable personality. Some may seem him as arrogant and be annoyed by his pretty boy persona but there is no denying it has helped his international popularity. There is a saying that “all publicity is good publicity” and here this seems to apply. Many people may like Messi better because of his humility and quiet-nature; however, it is Cristiano’s personality that has contributed to his marketability.
