Would he be a more respected player if he stayed in 1 club his whole career or if he dominated the EPLel league?
He could leave, but why would he? Barca can match any wages other teams can offer, he only speaks Spanish, and nobody in their right mind would choose to live in Northwest England instead of Barcelona.
oh, I don't know, but if he ever wanted to leave he should be respected in his decision. I would even say be allowed to leave for free but, considering he would end up in direct opposition and probably a ridiculously rich plastic club, not so sure about that lel
>When will Eplel being the best stop?
OP didn't say it was the best. But every top player is linked to a Premier League club at some point because English teams are already ridiculously rich, and about to become even richer with that new TV deal.
funny how it used to be iniesta and xavi until xavi retired. Now it's iniesta a busquets. Then it will be busquets and whoever, etc. Funnier when you consider iniesta only gave a single assist during last season's whole liga campaign.
dunno, you'll never know.
know full well that if hazard or de bryne were in lol liga they'd be banging them in every week.
tends to be they come over here, have a decent couple of months, then get found out.
>know full well that if hazard or de bryne were in lol liga they'd be banging them in every week.
>Messi banging them in every week in La Liga
>Messi banging them in every week in the CL
>Hazard/De Bruyne not banging them in every week in EPL
>Hazard/De Bruyne not banging them in every week in the CL
I don't see how that would equal to Hazard/De Bruyne banging them in every week in La Liga
if talking about messi:
>dunno, you'll never know
if talking about 'premier' crap:
>know full well they'd be banging them in every week
also, lol at hazard scoring goals every week. What a fookin 'premier' scam he is
>tfw you see your reflection in the world cup trophy
He'll go down in history as the ultimate system baby.
at this point they can rename "camp nou" to "camp messi" and build a statue infront of it
Messi made Barcelona what it is today
>at this point they can rename "camp nou" to "camp messi" and build a statue infront of it
both are coming but not until he retires. the stadium name probably not until he goes back to his planet
>one club baby in a team tailor made for him
while scoring a couple of goals against literal whos every week
not to mention the blatant use of roids that probably everyone at Real and Barcelona does.
All these le ebin contrarian kids disputing that Messi is the objective GOAT... I understand you want to be le cool rebellious special snowflakes but denying he's the GOAT just makes you look like a retard. Just stick to >I rate Zidane threads.
relax and enjoy
>a team tailor made for him
what does this even mean kek
Man, Boa is such a good defender, it pains me to see him humiliated like this.
Especially when all the bandwagon fans with short memory say shit like "he'll always be remembered as the guy who Messi put on his ass" even though Boa had him in his pocket in that WC final
He would be less respected if he came to the EPL because he would be found out and disappoint everyone.
Same reason Zlatan has always been scared to come. They just can't compete in that league.
the moment he scored that goal a commentator on catalan radio had the exact same concern as you do. Basically said the same thing you just did and warned about the imminent avalanche of memes online lel
Are we talking about Alexis and Cesc? Oh that's right, no we're not, we're talking about Messi and Zlatan. If they believed, like Sanchez did, they they could make it in the EPL they would have by now, but they know they will not.
As for Fabregas, you know he started his professional playing career at Arsenal right? And was there for over a year before he started making proper first team appearances? Hardly becoming an instant star is it?
He proved at the WC that he's nothing more than a luxury player who can't perform without a stacked team behind him. In a more level playing field like the Premier League, he'd be a 20 goal a season player at best.
you are pretty much right, personally i think he could get lucky and have a 30-goal-season but he wouldn't be able to do that consistently
the playing would be much more like as when he plays with argentina because everything is so equal between the teams in england he isnt that much better there
You mean the guy who matched his best Spurs tally while having to play second fiddle to Ronaldo, single handedly won the Copa del rey and scored the winning goal in the CL final, winning Madrid their first CL in over 10 years?
I was thinking more along the lines of Diego Forlan, who was below Heskey tier here, but a 30+ goal a season player in Spain. Or Carlos Vela, or should i say Carling Cup Vela, who became one of the best players in La Liga. Or perhaps Roberto Soldado, Iago Aspas, Flopcao, Di Maria, Freddy Kanoute, Jose Reyes etc.
Messi is the best and most condecorated player in the world, playing for a team that has won 4 of the last 10 CLs and two trebles in the last 5? years. A club he's grown up in. On top of that he is the 2nd biggest earner in the sport (4th athlete worldwide). Why anyone thinks he would even consider joining the 'premier' league and have to live in shit tier england is beyond me. There's no better team there, nor better football, nor more money, nor better living conditions.
>If they believed, like Sanchez did, they they could make it in the EPL
lel sanchez was pushed out of barcelona because he didn't cut it there with his dribblings to nowhere, his stumbles and his weekly bloopers, he didn't leave because he thought he 'could make it' in the eplel (at arselol of all teams)
>fabregas was there for over a year before he started making proper first team
obviously, he was a fucking minor straight out of la masia
Those two players were barcelona rejects (literally) and instantly became top players in the 'premier' league without any effort. English press members would routinely appear at barcelona press conferences and update luis enrique on their great success there, trying to rub it on his face while the man couldn't give a shit of what they were doing there. Haven't seen them since barcelona smashed the 'premier' winner city in cl and I doubt they will come back now that barcelona won the treble again kek
>this is the player that makes it in the eplel and becomes a star as soon as he arrives
>makes out that Sanchez was some sort of donkey
>his goal output for Arsenal last season was actually less than the previous season for Barca
And Fabregas always goes to shit once the cold weather comes in, like most la liga babbys who come here.
>makes out that Sanchez was some sort of donkey
he was, he simply doesn't have the skill to play at barcelona comfortably. whenever he would get the ball you could hear the whole stadium nervously rumour, waiting for the inevitable miss or fall
>Fabregas always goes to shit once the cold weather comes in
funny how it also happened in barcelona, every season, right after winter break. I always suspected it was because of the snow, but not the one that falls from the sky. He's the only player I remember recently being whistled by barcelona fans in his own stadium. That should tell you all about the great cesc fabregas, 'premier' league superstar
It's also quite tellling barcelona went from winning nothing to a treble the season those two left
>It's also quite tellling barcelona went from winning nothing to a treble the season those two left
Call me crazy, but i think that was more down to Neymar coming good and Suarez signing
This. And the fee they would get for him is ridiculous I'm sure it would be worth it. Now that mess I basically plays right wing instead of center forward they can replace him with another player almost as good for a pittence of what they would get for him.
>bullying in E"P"L
Spain tops it even in bullying and dirty tactics too m8
>defences like Tottenham or Crystal Palace
yeah man, i imagine the rest of europe is quaking in their boots knowing that the mighty tottenham might actually make the CL next season
Would you put C. Ronaldo in the top 20 all time?
>Would he be a more respected player if he stayed in 1 club his whole career or if he dominated the EPLel league?
he couldn't be any more respected.
he doesn't need to dominate the epl, everyone knows he would.
why would he want to live anywhere in England when he can live in Castelldefels?
I've heard that in return for that smug smile, Messi simply whispered, "I curse your country with a million Muslim men."
>the stadium name probably not until he goes back to his planet
Tbf city totally changed the way he played
At barca toure was the defender/holding midfielder who wasn't allowed to get forward because of all the talent in front of him. And in that position barca preferred baskets for some reason
At City he's a box to box midfielder, one who was initially playing with two defensive midfielders behind him
This picture and the photographer is a fraud. He's not actually looking at the trophy.
>preferred baskets for some reason
he got forward a lot more than Bisquick – scored some blooters too – but lacked the positional awareness to maintain the midfield spacing from DM by the 09-10 season.
>Those two players were barcelona rejects (literally) and instantly became top players in the 'premier' league without any effort.
And notice how Barcelona suddenly became good again after getting rid of both Cesc and Alexis (which were bought at the same time just after winning the last CL)
>both Cesc and Alexis (which were bought at the same time just after winning the last CL
and that season no big title was won. as a matter of fact, iirc barcelona had 2/3 seasons without big titles with those two in the team
Barcelona before Messi era - One (1) Champions League
Barcelona after Messi era - Five (5) , and counting
as much of a recognizable city as it is, they weren't much of a big club outside madridista eyes for 100 years until the GOAT showed up
This infiltration of reddit Barca 'fans' is disgraceful.
They were hated on this board 2 years now there are Barca fans from all corners of the globe.
There are even regular Spanish posters now when before you'd never see a Spanish flag except that guy with the charts who can barely speak English.
Uefalone will go back into obscurity when Pessi dies of a PED overdose
>all that butthurt
Yes well done that's right! The United States have won ZERO (0) world cup titles!
