First of all, I'm not a big fan of Leo Messi, I don't think he's the best footballer in the world, the best footballer in the world is Cristiano Ronaldo, if you ask me.
Now that that is out of the way, let us discuss. Is Barcelona F.C. really such a good team?? I know they have some of the most decorated players in world football, world champions, European champions and all sorts. But they seem to be proving not to be that great of a team without the services of 'the little-big man'.
Take their Champions league fixture that just ended where they played against PSG for instance, barca's attack lacked that oomph or idea of course until Messi came onto the scene, at the 60th minute of the game, he did not really change the game, the only thing he changed was his team. He just kind of switched them on. And then, suddenly, Barcelona became a team again, it appears that the mere thought of Leo being on the field of play springs some kind of psychological activity in the mind of the team.
Is Barcelona a team without Leo? I doubt that, a lot.
Today, Their defence was all over the place, when full backs went on overlaps it took them ages to return to their posts of duty.
Their attack without Leo was clueless and lacked ideas on the ball, and their midfield, which is the strongest part of their game is old and frail and will not last very long. So do you still think Barcelona is the greatest team in the world? Yes?? No?? Let me know.
Till next time,, keep dreaming!!
