Messi is for Barcelona what Maradona was for Napoli. Both teams would be good, but not great without them. That being said, I still think Maradona was better.

Leo Messi is the best there ever was. I don’t care what everybody else says. Comparing him to Ronaldo is a joke!

What would have happened if Van Persie stayed in the game only god knows. Barca got lucky against Arsenal. Or you can say it was a combination of luck and Messi.

What a player! He proved once and for all that he is the best. He is like an artist handling his brush every time he is touching the ball.

Without Messi Barcelona would not be winning that game and probably most of the difficult games they had this year. If he goes away they will go down.

I cried when Messi nailed down that first goal, then I cried again because of Busquets, and I cried a third time when Barca finally won the game.
Barak Sam

I am not celebrating just yet. There is still a lot of work to do, even in the Spanish league. Real Madrid is only seven points away.
Daniel Hook

What a relief! I think it would be a great shame is Arsenal would have kicked out Barcelona. The champions league cup is now looking closer than ever.
David G.

That first goal Messi scored against Arsenal was just pure genius. I watched it like fifty times already. He is just amazing.
F. B.

Messi, my love, I can already imagine you getting all possible trophies this season. People don’t realize how young you are and how far you will still go.
Sara C.

Messi will be able to break his scoring drought against Real Madrid in the next four games. I think he will do it in a big way that will not be forgotten soon.

Watching Messi and Barcelona play is like going to a concert and listening to Mozart or watching a ballet show. They are artists!

Lionel Messi, I love you! I want to marry you and have your children! LOL.

I care more about the league than the world cup and in the League Messi is better than everybody else.
Nathan V

In the next Coppa del Mondo Messi will show everyone that he is the best there ever was. Argentina will win and he will win best player. Just wait and see.
Adam Sh

I feel like I’m visiting the circus because of all the clowns here. Messi was number one in the world cup. He made his team better. He thinks about his teammates and not about himself.

You don’t win soccer games with love. Maradona can hug and kiss Messi all day long and at the end of the day Spain took the cup. Messi should switch nationalities and play for the Spanish team.

Come on! Maradona is crazy and everybody knows it. He was a great player and all but he is still as dumb as a doorknob. Messi deserved a better coach and a better team for the world cup.

You are the stupid one. How dare you call Maradona stupid? Messi is the best player, but he is still young. A good player knows how to make his team win. If Messi was just a few years older Argentina would have taken the world cup.

No one can say any longer that Messi does not deliver when the moment of truth comes. He beat Real Madrid almost by himself by scoring the two goals in the first game.

There is no doubt in anybody’s mind now who is the best player in the world. I think this year proved his supremacy.

I agree with you, even though Ronaldo scored more goals during the season. Messi made his team better and that’s what counts.

Messi is not only the best in the world now, he is also one of the all-time greats. However, he will need to win a national title with Argentina before his journey to greatness will be completed.

So much pressure is placed on Messi’s shoulders in the Copa America games! It’s not really fair to expect so much of him.

If he is considered the best player in the world then he should lead his national team to win titles. The pressure comes with the territory.

It will be interesting to see how the recent failure in the Copa America will influence Messi’s performance in Barcelona next season. We’ll just have to wait and see.
