Andres Iniesta – The Missing Link

May 10, 2010

I have to admit that Andres Iniesta (pictured above with Lassana Diarra) has been a personal favourite of mine for a few years now and it appears it’s now almost a trendy aspect of modern football to like him.

I don’t mind, well I do, but it’s a sign of his importance in the game and more so, his importance to F.C. Barcelona.

2009 proved to be a fantastic year for the Catalonians and with the teams heartbeat consisting of home-grown Spanish talents with a predominant local feel to several of the players, it added an extra special touch.

Leo Messi – The Greatest Ever?

April 1, 2010

It is a debate that will rage on and on for many a month to come and has arguably raged on since the dawn of football, Pele or Maradona? Gazza or Best? Banks or Zoff?
