    Eat your motherfucking heart out Maradona.

    That was abso-fucking-lutely beautiful. Why is it that midget soccer players are more adept at making those defense ripping runs. Low center gravity perhaps?

    Fuck that was beautiful. Good shit.

    You can't even compare the English players were running away from Maradonna, The Getafe players were trying to tackle Messi.

    Messi's run destroys Maradona's '86 World Cup goal for sure. Puts it to shame.

    I can't believe I missed that match and I have GolTV and FSC.

    I never understood why Pekerman let Messi sat out against Germany in the world cup.

    He said years before that Messi was a jewel, everyone in Argentina wanted to see him play.

    There were other players like Aimar, Tevez, Saviola, Crespo and even Palacio that were more stablished, maybe he thought they were better prepared mentally.

    Maybe he felt Messi was unfit to play in that match because of that injury he sustained prior to the cup or maybe he felt more confident going with Saviola. Either way, he was definitely not a 100% during the World Cup. But at least he was involved in that beautiful goal against Serbia and Montenegro.

    I love right in the middle after the guy's been saying "Yeah Salaam Yeah Salaam Yeah Salaam" for 12 minutes there's a slight pause and then the announcer starts machine gunning guttural consonants out like some filthy hobo just busted into the booth and is trying to force his sausage fingers into Yeah Salaam's gob.

    Yeah from what I can tell the announcer didn't start narrating the play until Messi kicked the ball then he was like oooooohhhhhh oooooohhhhhhh ooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhh yes salam..

    except for the tiny little minor fact that maradona's goal came in the world cup quarterfinal and was the winning goal, allowing his team to advance to the semifinals. oh, and except for the fact that maradona was being tackled as he kicked the ball on goal.

    stop saying stupid shit.

    With the modern game being more aggressive and defensive minded, a forward making a run like that and scoring a goal is a rarity. You're assuming the conditions two decades ago is the same as the present.

    And did someone fart in your morning cup of coffee?

    No doubt

    Didn't Diego get his stomach stapled about a year ago? I'll bet he's lost a lot of weight.

    He did it a while back, so hes not that fat anymore. He also stopped doing drugs. He had a pretty succesful TV show in Argentina and looked like he was on his way up again, but two weeks ago he checked into a Hospital again because of gastric complications. (Against doctors orders, he started eating and drinking too much again)

    The English aren't that well known for their defensive skills, on the other hand Getafe has one if not the best defense in the spanish league.

    i understand.....but you can't compare a league game to the world cup quarterfinals. that's like comparing a pre-season game to the super bowl.

    Maradona in his prime was obscene. And have you guys seen footage of Cruyff? He smoked a pack a day most of his career and was still ridiculous.

    Cruyff was a beast back in the day.

    Have you guys heard the rumours? Milan is offering 100 Euros for Ronaldinho, even tho I love him I would sell him in a heart beat for that prize, that would free up space for Gio Dos Santos and Bojan Kirkic. Have you guys seen any of the two play?
