91 Goals

January 2, 2013

91 goals.

In one year.

The latest accomplishment in Lionel Messi’s career.

It is a staggering number.

It seems unreal but it isn’t because with Messi anything is possible on the football field.

Even at this stage of Lio’s career, all the praise, recognition, marvel, and other words used to describe his talent and greatness have been exhausted.

Is there really anything new or original that can be said about this extraordinary football player who continues to break records, make history and add new chapters to his Ongoing Legend?.

There are people that argue that Messi cannot be considered one of the best players in football history unless he wins a World Cup.

I disagree.

Messi has already earned that status and before his career is over he may very well be the greatest player in the history of the game.

I think it is shortsighted and wrong to attempt to define Messi’s career and legacy by whether he wins or does not win a World Cup.

Messi’s accomplishments in European football have blazed a great trail for him and have him on the great path that he is on as a football player.

It is making the argument that, in the end, winning a World Cup must be the defining moment/accomplishment for Messi and his place in football history more and more irrelevant.

Messi’s brilliance does not need to be established once every four years because it is there for all to see every week, all the time.

91 goals in one year.

Will anyone ever get near or even break that record?

As the saying goes, all records are meant to be broken but it may be a while before this one is surpassed.

Or maybe not.

Because with Messi anything is possible on the football field.


Los Dioses del Fútbol

December 18, 2011

Pocas veces en mi vida me he levantado en la madrugada para ver un partido de fútbol.

Pocas veces en mi vida he visto un equipo como el Barcelona.

En realidad, nunca.

Este Barcelona de Pep Guardiola es una leyenda viva. Es fútbol en su mas pura y hermosa expresion.

El Barca es un equipo extraordinario. Futbolisticamente, lo hace todo bien. Pero no se trata de su manera de jugar ni de su talento aunque el Barca lo tiene a sobras. No se trata de una idea de fútbol aunque ellos la tienen, claramente. No importa el rival, el partido ni la Copa en disputa, y menos aun donde se juega. El Barca tiene una forma de jugar espectacular y tiene una mentalidad ganadora pero sobre todo tiene un espiritu que no le permite a sus jugadores traicionar su manera de sentir el fútbol.

Jugar bien al fútbol es un sentimiento.

El Barca nunca se traiciona. De tantas virtudes que tiene esa es la mas Grande.

El espiritu del Barca, que no lo tiene ningun otro equipo en el mundo, es lo que le da la Mistica y Grandeza que tiene.

Y Messi?

Messi siempre esta, con la camiseta del Barca es intocable. Un genio consagrado en la historia del fútbol, con solo 24 años.

Hay gente que aun lo discuten. Pobre ellos.

Messi siempre esta. Con grandes jugadas, golazos inolvidables y historicos. Por todo el mundo.

Seguira el debate para algunos y mientras tanto Messi seguira ganando y haciendo historia.

Igual que su equipo.

Barcelona gano otra Copa hoy. Campeones del Mundial de Clubes.

Y sigue la fiesta.

En Catalunya, alegrias sin fin.
