Arsenal were hit by Messi.They grabbed the lead and thought OK !We can do this and then the one man that Im sure they wished would be quiet rose to the occation in a master class display which leads usto the question. Is Messi the Greatest of all time.We have often debated what makes a player great.I believe its performing in the Big Stages and making it look so simple.To rise above the rest. Penaltinho ,Rooney..I feel you cant compare.Messi is class,He makes the ball stick to his feet, His skills,his pace. I mean look how he was running through Arsenal, nutmegging defenders, turning them inside out.He makes world class defenders eat grass.He did it too Canavaro and many greats. Arsenal had no answer and the only time he looked like he wasnt going to score if he was off the field. A pure magician.All of his goals.
But the question is ,Will he be the greatest of all time or just the greatest of his Generation.
Today we have technology, the boots, the balls , energy enhancements ,training methodoligies and fitness programmes. I mean Pele and players of his time like George Best didnt have these things.Or is it a case that you are great irrespective of the times as the ball is round and its what you do with it.
So is Messi the Greatest Ever.That is the question.
Ask Arsenal....................or even Wenger.
Im sure the MANCS are happy to see that they offloaded rubbish like Silvestre.He was shocking!
