As this is an appreciation thread, there is no need for this.

I am going to give you a warning here, if you slip up again, you'll get a ban.

Surpassing Cronaldo's best (6 in 09-10) Messi has now scored 7 direct freekicks with Barcelona 15-16.

Messi: "I've been doing extra free-kick training for a while now. I'm practising every time I can."

Every keeper is getting beat the near post there. Like wtf brev, have you not watched Messi do that before. They should literally start moving towards that side when Messi starts his run up.

There's no "near post" in freekicks, there's wall side and goalie side, both handle one side. The purpose of wall is to discourage shot in that side, and make it so difficult pace wise that goalie can get there. Messi just has superb technique so he can beat the wall with pace enough. And the second and second to last are actually to goalie sides, and as you see goalies guess and start to go to wall side early, but can't react fast enough when it comes to goalie side with super shot. So there's the explanation and reason why goalies don't always do that, it's a guess game.

Cronaldo has 0 through balls what crap stat for players that plays on wings. Also Suarez has only 4 through balls what a scrub how can no. 9 have only 4 through balls when his main function is to collect ball from midfield and feed others. Pathetic players if u ask me.

18 year old Messi on a potato field against Mourinho's Chelsea, team that still holds the point record of Premier League and was 49 games undefeated at home.

Goosebumps.

Barcelona was lucky they faced easily the toughest team in CL that season when Messi was still fit.
