Dest: best player in the Barcelona side today? (Liked Messi and Alba for an hour).
There’s an idea that this year has been a really, uniquely exciting Champions League, which vindicates (and is because of the format). Let’s accept that for a minute (although it’s debatable) but, erm, did no one watch last year’s?
For no particular reason except that I like the photo (a recent version of many similar ones). There’s something sort of magical about going up a stadium stairs and that moment the pitch first comes into view, all bright and green and almost overwhelming.
16 goals in 15 games for Messi against English teams. You know, I reckon he might just about be able to do it in Stoke.
Wenger won three Premier Leagues, didn’t he? Specialist in failure. Respect, respect, respect.
