Neither words nor numbers do him justice. By Dan Leydon
"My thoughts on Messi are probably a lot like everyone else’s; I feel like I’m witnessing something special every time I watch him play. When he was through on goal the other night and then collapsed in a heap clutching his knee I was worried he’d lose some of his ability to a serious injury. But no, he just came back in the next game and scored two ridiculous finishes to break Muller’s goal record and notch 86 goals in a calendar year. Words don’t do him justice. I have a feeling we won’t be able to fully understand the consistency of his genius until he retires."
