    If he has the ball 10-20 times per match somewhere around the box, then:
    = He scored on 2 matches out of 200-400 actions around the box

    So, yeah, even Rakitic would have scored more with the amount of ball which Messi gets.

    And remember that majority of those 20 matches were again horrible midtable or bottom table La Liga teams.

    Prime Messi was one player.
    The current Messi has barely anything in common with that guy except having the same physical appearance.
    Obviously I was trolling.

    If you mean current Messi= the last 20 matches.... ok, I could agree with what you wrote, even if I don't see his performances as negative as you do.

    It's also a strange situation. He wanted to leave, but he must stay.
    So it is, and now we have this "team" (for me without rhyme or reason, a team put randomly together, without following any project/vision).
    Let's hope that Koeman can make something good out of it.

That is the best football, the most authentic, unfettered by tactics or schemes. Guardiola’s philosophy is helping to change the mindset of many tacticians and that is priceless.” Marco Van Basten

    I doubt he even cares anymore. I still think he lost his motivation a while ago, regardless of Bartomeu or not.

    Messi knows Barcelona is a sinking ship at the moment and it's going to take years before we're back to being a top club. He doesn't have those years.

    Not sure what a new president can offer Messi, besides more money. They can't offer him big signings, Champions League trophies, a consistent and good team. They can't even offer him a top coach at this point.

    I honestly feel we should sell Messi in January and get something for him. Start our rebuilding process from January. But I know we're not going to do that, because Messi is apparently bigger than the club, despite being 33 and only having 8 months left on his contract (6 months in January).

To be the the best or one of the best in 3 different categories is outstanding.
    Seriously...
    EXACTLY !!!
    He's is 3 in 1.
    If you search on the web best playmaker.... you will almost always find Messi if not in the first position, in the first 3
    Honestly, I don't know if there has ever been a player in the history of soccer with these top of the top qualities combined.

    Funny enough I think Bartomeu would've remained if he let Messe leave and used the wage offset to sign another player.

    He seems to have lost indded his motivation to play for Barca.For he is the best player in our history,but if that is the case,he must go.Although if the possible destination is indeed City...are they really that good?They seem to be sinking too.

    Even if that would have been the case,the guy is a disaster with transfers.I wouldn't trust him with any money.

    LMAO he is 33 years old. WTF is a new president going to promise him with our financial situation in shambles and the whole covid crisis? It'll take a long time to build a CL contending side, time which Messi dose not have. He either stays and accepts a lesser role and lesser contract or goes where his heart desires.


    He is not all of a sudden going to start playing like 2015/2019 messi just because the rat left.

    Pirlo : "for the first time L'll be facing Leo Messi as a coach.
    I'll treat him with the great respect he deserve".

    That's how men talk about men.
    Once you feel your succeed in life, you're peaceful toward yourself and others.

    Villarubi, you sound like a little bully but harmless😉. I've done worst in the past.
