‘Donkeys don’t have a peak, they remain useless’
To discuss everything regarding The GOAT:
In the 2011-12 season, Lionel Messi scored 73 goals in 60 games. A decade later, the accomplishment remains as impressive as ever.theanalyst.com
Lionel Messi is arguably one of the finest players to have graced the game, scoring a plethora of goals and winning trophies galore for club and country.www.sportskeeda.com
If Barca weren’t trying their best to run themselves into the ground there’d be even more success as well ffs.
12/13 is peak messi imo, most non-penalty goals in la liga, season curtailed slightly by injury. The way he controlled those one vs one interactions was utterly ridiculous though, like it wasn't just guaranteed that he was gonna beat his man, but that he could choose the pace he did it at. And he was 25.
We never saw his true peak though, he lost the physical explosiveness that allowed him to do 12/13 things going into 14/15 at the same time his creative abilities exploded.
We never saw the physically dominant forward and creative maestro at the same time imo. They just missed each other
I mean, you've said what I'm driving at right here. He was creative, don't get me wrong but there's a very obvious explosion that happens in 14/15, he was only 27.He became the best playmaker later in his career

I know he was carrying weight at the end of the 13/14 season and that he lost a lot going into 14/15, it's my personal theory that he lost some quality muscle in so doing and therefore some explosiveness, right when his passing range went up several levels.
I don't really see why this is such repulsive opinion. He was uniformly brilliant, but he could've gotten to an even higher level imo
Surprised John Terry didn't celebrate the win with himFrom the moment we saw him bag that crazy hattrick v Madrid in 2007 it was obvious he could become the best, this confirms it.
It was cute seeing all his kids celebrate with him, a little weird seeing Aguero out of nowhere in a full kit though
