still won't deserve the "all time great" hype that he's getting until he accomplishes something with the National Team.
Have to admit I have always been a proponent of Maradona as the best of all time for a lot of reasons, one of which was he won a World Cup of his own boot and carried his team to another final, but Messi's performances are slowly changing my mind. He is an all-time great at the age of 23, and is the 3rd all-time scorer at Barca, a club over a hundred years old. I don't know why you call him a ***** when he plays the game the way it should be played and doesn't have the ego someone like Ronaldo does. There are *****es in that Barca side, Busquets for one, but not Messi.
Will he win a World Cup like Maradona did? Probably not - but the game has changed since then - he is already in the top 3 players of all time however - he's a freak of a freak.
