Or, more directly … How long, Messi?
How long will you marvel at the world and humiliate your rivals?
I think there are still no answers to that. In fact, I am sure that there is still a step-through Argentina to even think about a ‘when’ this journey ends.
Yes, Newell’s. Your lucky day
A new day of Champions and the Argentine star debuts with a hat-trick. However, the number of goals is set aside when compared to the quality of the same. Authentic pearls
Oh, right! And without any red card.
Messi’s goals are already as varied as they are repetitive (although this has always been the case). Free kicks, headers, volleys and, especially, goals with the right leg.
Yes, it deserves a special mention.
The right of Lio
Also known as the right one that makes a mess of defenses.
Messi’s right is also world class and his scandalous number of goals converted with it confirms it. He handles it as well as the left-handed one we all admire. And yes, this is from another planet.
In addition, Valverde’s scheme tends to use more.
Here nothing is chance.
The midfield version of Messi makes him step on the area in quick projections, and, sometimes, he has to define without first profiling. He spent in the first day of Champions and is something that has been seen since the departure of Luis Enrique.
And it seems that this season we will see it even more …
The Blaugrana context
While many of the goals of the Argentine are manufactured-almost entirely by him, being surrounded by better ‘players’ will clearly influence this season’s records.
Who? Well, there are old and new:
Luis Suárez, your partner par excellence.
Coutinho, outstanding passer and already fully adapted to Barcelona.
Dembélé, who -in the end- is leaving flashes of quality.
Rakitic, he is not Iniesta’s heir, but he plays well.
Jordi Alba, and everything that his projections by lefts mean.
Yes, there will be D10S for many more years.
And if we take into account that he is just over 100 goals away from overtaking Pelé as the top scorer in history, the amount of scoring starts to interest a little more.
But, for now …
Until when Messi?
