Ungrateful Barcelona fans have been questioning Messi's performance so far this season. If what we saw against Real Madrid is an indication, he is all set to kick these doubters behind in coming weeks!


Is Lionel Messi back to his Best?

The more you listen to those half-informed Barcelona fans and Messi doubters on Twitter, you get convinced with every single post that these fans don't deserve him. They can't even see the impact he brings into the team as they can't think straight anything other than some random stats.

So we are told that Messi had a poor night against Real Madrid as he once again failed to get into the goal-scoring chart. And to make matters worse, he was neither in those assist charts. One cannot argue with dim-witted fools because they don't understand the beautiful games. How can you make these fools understand that without Messi's ball there was no equalizer? What Fati and Alba did from then was a mere formality. But they never understand!

Sevilla exposed the folly of limiting Lionel Messi in a false-9 role! Is practically possible to use the false-9 role in the 4-2-3-1 formation, Koeman's preferred choice?

Why Messi as False-9 Experiment should Stop Immediately!

So it all went back to square one for Barcelona, once again! The Euphoria of the Koeman fanboys on the social media lasted two matches, exactly two matches. Now it's been replaced by self-doubts across the internet. The match at times resembled how Barcelona played under Valverde, and that's making a lot of people nervous.

Still, the Koeman fanboys are full out in support. They understand that the match presented serious questions about the Dutchman's tactical acumen, but none of it matters. Right now, they are going after their favourite scapegoat - Lionel Messi. As I explained earlier, even if Messi was the one creating any kind of move, he will be always be blamed this season.

Koeman's biggest problem could effectively integrating Francisco Trincão to play efficiently with Lionel Messi, Barcelona's Captain. It may seem so simple, but we have seen how players struggled earlier! Will it happen again?

Francisco Trincão entertained all in Barcelona's first outing of the 2020-21 season. Even though the opposition was a below-average side, and we should refrain from going euphoric about that display; even then Barcelona fans were quite impressed by what they saw of Francisco Trincão.

The second half display was quite brilliant, especially if we compare with the first-half display. The second half had the young and the new kids, and that was the difference-maker. But the brightest spot was Trincão.

With Lionel Messi staying back at the Club, the majority of the Cules are relieved. Relieved that this extended saga, that threatened to upend the season is finally over. Relieved that the World's Best Player will be there for at least one more season. The key is the word 'at-least'!

The announcement also rekindled the hope of maybe seeing Messi play out his career at Barcelona. The dream of every Barcelona fan would be to see their captain renew for another two more years. We still need to wait to see how that hope will churn out!

Even though Messi can claim the higher ground, when the dust settles the winner will emerge from the opposite end, and unfortunately it is Bartomeu.



In the end, the only one who will stand alone when the dust settles would be Lionel Messi, the Argentinian Maestro. His supporters may claim how Messi handled a very tricky situation, with a targetted attack on the board and clearly explaining his decision to stay back at the club.

But when it all ends, this will be once again remembered as another moment where Messi failed to stand up and fight when the going got tough. That's always an accusation even those who loved him regularly levels against him. The current situation is not going to look favorable when viewed through that angle.

Sep 2, 2020

Catalan media is painting a picture favorable for Bartomeu in the whole saga, but they know that Messi holds all the card. His silence is killing them.

So what we have learned so far - Messi and his camp believe that he is no longer a Barcelona player, Messi wants to go from Barcelona with amicable terms, Bartomeu doesn't want anything of it, He wants Messi to renew the contract.

One thing is clear whether he likes it or not, Messi is gone for good. If the court does not allow him to leave Barcelona, there is a high chance of him retiring from football than continue playing at Barcelona. Then as he did with Argentina, he will make a come back from retirement in the winter transfer window. Not a bad option for Manchester City!

Lionel Messi should insist on leaving Barcelona for free as mentioned in his exit clause. That will be a huge favor he will be doing for his old club as well as his new club.



All signs show that 'Messi-Exit' saga is only in his initial stages. The entire Globe including social media and the footballing clubs are in a stage of shock. Many of the active Pursuiter is struggling to make out whether this is all a political circus or an active interest of 'The GOAT' to move away.

No one wants to end up looking stupid. It's normal, and that's why no club is showing a clear public interest in the pursuit. Behind the scenes, everyone is making contact. The silence surrounding the Messi entourage makes this entire episode more intriguing!

Lionel Messi's impending departure has made the already chaotic situation of the Club even worse. Even if he is forced to stay, this will indefinitely damage the Club beyond repair.



A great love story which started with a Paper napkin, is ending more bizarrely, with another piece of paper - burofax. It appears that the term will be added soon to the famous English dictionaries! The burofax which Messi sent to express his desire to leave the club for free, has hurled Chaos in Barcelona. The Socios and their leaders appear to be unmoved, but fans across the World are terrified even thinking about it.

As we stand we are hearing too many versions leaked from the Club. One version says, that the Club has reminded him of his release clause of 700 Million and he is still a Barcelona fan. Another version says that the Club sent a reply saying that they want him to continue, and complete the career in Barcelona!

Lionel Messi Gifs against Bayern Munich

With the Bayern encounter just around the corner, this will definitely calm down a lot of nerves and instill hope among Barcelona fans. The situations could be different, but Messi remains the same and will be a handful come Friday.

Lionel Messi single-handedly destroyed Bayern that night, and if they come with full-on arrogance, he could make them pay again!

After a waiting period which threatened to extend to infinity, we finally saw the much anticipated Messi-Saurez-Griezmann trident clicking together. Is this the start of something beautiful?


Messi, Saurez, and Griezmann started to Click

Finally, the much-awaited, much-anticipated trident clicked together - Messi, Saurez, and Griezmann, popularly known as the MSG. Is this the start of something new or just another false hope? Only time will tell. How Barcelona's season will end will depend heavily on the answer to this!

There were glimpses of hope in some of the earlier matches. But it's fair to say, those were mere aberrations. This was in contrast looked like the real deal. The difference was the way they were linking and how easily they fit into the system.

The World in Barcelona has started once again spinning out of control following the break down of the latest Messi contract talks. Some say it's the usual bargaining tactic going on. But is that all in this? Is this just the tip of the iceberg?



Lionel Messi Exit Rumours! Is there More than that Meet the Eyes?

More than 24 hours have passed since the breaking of the news about the possibility of a Messi exit at end of 2021 season. As expected none from the Club nor anyone connected with the player had issued any statement to calm down the fans. Remember if this is not fixed up, he may leave this season!

But Is there more to the story than what is being reported. Are there some big shots behind Messi's move? You never know. In this article, we will look into what is behind Messi's latest move!

Jun 26, 2020

There will surely come a time when he breaks, but the Club and Management are willing to take that risk! Then do they have any other Choice?



With almost seven matches left to play in the League and then the coming Champions League campaign, it is clear that Barcelona's resources will be stretched to its physical limit. An ever-shrinking squad, which may sound death of all of Barcelona's ambition, long before the battle takes place.

In all these permutations and combination, there is a factor which will remain supreme - Lionel Messi. Even if the squad manages to stay fully fit and in top form, if he is unavailable, Barcelona's season will end there and then.

The constant veiled attack on Lionel Messi via Batromeu stooges suggest a complete breakdown of relationship between the President and the Captain. Is he trying to force Lionel Messi out of Barcelona.





The fight right now is between 'The President' and 'The Captain, and it seems Bartomeu has got the memo. His hurried statement following Lionel Messi's mindblowing Instagram post, suggest that. More worryingly it is now clear that there is an ongoing pitch battle between the Barcelona Board and the Players. Whichever way it ends, Barcelona could suffer heavily here!


The constant wielded attacks, the targetted campaigns which were exposed by 'BarcaGate' reveals a targetted campaign against players, especially the Captain. But what is Bartomeu's ulterior motive here? At this moment it appears to get Lionel Messi to leave the Club. It's all about power struggle; Bartomeu realizes that with Messi around he will never have absolute power!

Once again Bartomeu's horrible attempt to destroy Messi's cridibility fall flat on its face. Messi destroyed the management and they have no place to hide!





Every opportunity, it appears for the Board is a hail-mary opportunity to defame Lionel Messi in front of the whole world; and they are not ready to let go of any! So for the last few days, when the majority of the world was busy fighting the Corona scare, Bartomeu and his boys were out in open (through their media stooges) trying to defame the players.


The captain was their prime target! And all those Ronaldo fan-boys and the Messi-haters latched on to purposeful leaked done by the Board to defame Lionel Messi. Lest they forgot, they were dealing with a different Messi. 'A Messi who treats Instagram as a Sword'. And outcome the next Messi Instagram post and all his haters have been put to shame. That includes the current Board!

Despite all the stupid criticism leveled against him, one cannot blame Messi for not ever being ready for a fight with Real Madrid. But there was no fight on display at the Santiago Bernabeu. What is the Inside story on this?




If one thing which Lionel Messi is accused of stands the test of time, is his reluctance to put up a fight when things are going not going so well for his team. We have seen these many times him struggling to lift his team, as a Captain should do when the team is showing no spirit for a fight. We never saw his egging his teammates, like Puyol shouting at them and charging at the opposition; that's always been his fault line.


But when it comes to meeting Barcelona's arch-rival Real Madrid, we always see a different Lionel Messi. One who is ready for the fight from word go, one who lifts his team along with his performances. And most importantly, one who will scare his opposition to submission. That Messi was missing on Sunday Night. Why?

Lionel Messi Gifs against Eibar

Check out his performance against Eibar below in GIF images:

With every passing hour, it is becoming clear that the Board's claim of innocence in the I3 Ventures Controversy will not hold water. It is time for Lionel Messi to take revenge on them on behalf of them and all the fans. Will he?




Barcelona as a Club is moving into further chaos with every passing minute following the unprecedented I3 Ventures Controversy. The attempt by the Club management to push things under the carpet with a rather diplomatic statement was kind of 'Dead on Arrival'. The fact that moments after issuing the statement, the entire I34 Ventures team (including the web presence) went to hiding negated anything that was said in the statement.


The current explanation from the Board is that they severed all the ties with the agency the moment they became aware of the issue. Will anyone believe any of this? We may not be such big fools as they imagine us to be! With every passing moment, Bartomeu seems to get into a deeper hole than he earlier was!

Lionel Messi became the first player from a team sport to win the prestigous Laureus Award, often dubbed as the Oscars of the Sporting World.




Lionel Messi, Captain of Barcelona became the first player from a team sport to win the Prestigious Laureus Sportsman of the Year Award. He shared the award with Formula One Champion, Lewis Hamilton. The very fact that he was able to hold his fort along with Hamilton, makes it's quite an achievement.


This is sixth time lucky for Lionel Messi who was nominated five times before this year. Coming from a Team Sport, it becomes extremely difficult to win the award as the individual sports players have an unfair advantage. Laureus has always been considered as being unfair to Team Sports!

The Guy who was scoring for fun, even after missing months of action suddenly is struggling to find the back of the net. Will this hurt Barcelona in the long run?




Lionel Messi has been struggling for goals since the turn of the new year, a stark contrast to how he finished 2019. Gone are those days where every free-kick from the little maestro was heading to the top corner of the goal. He has scored thrice under Setién, which in normal cases is a great feat. But the Lionel Messi is not your normal Super Hero!


Lionel Messi still leads the Pichichi race having scored 14 goals so far. This in itself is an almighty feat as he missed a sizeable part of the season. But if Setién's Barcelona is to achieve greater success, they want their talismanic leader in fine form. Let's look at the factors which are hindering Messi currently.


Feb 10, 2020



Lionel Messi may not have scored last night, but his performance warranted another ten out of ten. It's not a normal thing to have one guy assist all three goals - a hat-trick of assists.
