    Its ridiculous to make it like this is his decline just due to his age. Put him in a quality team with a few shots on target a game and he will easily run games and put down 50+ season goals.

    Its really not that easy to create for Messi. Just compare the amount of forward runs he made back then to now. Hes barely leaving his comfort zone anymore.

    His finishing was off, but he was more active in the 2nd half at least.

    His level has dropt the last month and a half (a part from the game against Atletico) but one positive is he's having more shots then the last couple of months under Valverde, lets hope his finishing returns to his normal levels soon.

    Really unlucky not to score today. It really wasn't his, or Barca's, day.

    Yeah,Messi has had a few disappointing matches lately,but the whole team is as dysfunctional as it can get.People already calling for his head or blaming him for the team's performance are both delusional and disgraceful.The man won a Ballon D'Or just last year for dragging our corpse of a team to a La Liga and the CL semis.
    "At Barcelona, you’ll hear about this kid on the youth team. He wears number 10 like you. He’s small like you. He plays with the ball like you.[...]His name is Leo Messi.[...]I want you to give him one piece of advice.

    Tell him, “Play with happiness. Play free. Just play with the ball.”

    Even when you are gone, the free style will live on in Barcelona through Messi."

    Like the whole team a bad first half but was our best player in the second half. It's strange it's as if longer rest are disrupting him these days

    Unless there has been a major change in Messis life the last couple of months, that won't happen. Just recently he exclaimed how he will stop scoring as many goals and be more of a creator to stay competitive and be the best Version for the team and himself. That aren't the words of someone who wants to leave.

    I must have watched a different game. Great 2nd half. Only one doing anything ... again. 10 shots, nearly all instigated from his own effort yet still is the subject of unfounded conspiracy theories here and unwarranted blame.

    Come to Boca Leo. Let us show you how a fanbase should respect a legend.

    If he stays at Barca he's already won his last trophy in football.

    Finishing wasn't so off. He was out by inches so many times it's infuriating. And then Valencia score out of nowhere. Luck really wasn't on our side. But we HAVE TO take the burden of scoring from him. Because our team's luck depends solely upon one man's luck and it's very problematic.

    Whenever the coach gives Messi a 'rest", it seems he is collecting "rust". What is he doing when the team travels to a mid-week match and he stays at home? He certainly does not practice his freekicks or works on his finishing? It happened before the Liverpool game and it happened again against Valencia. I think the coach should give Messi some homework whenever he travels away with his team.
    It seems ridiculous to accuse Messi of not practising enough, but his recent freekicks seem to indicate that he does not work hard enough between matches.
