Lionel Messi is good at football

Lionel Messi beat Gerd Mueller's record of scoring 85 goals in a calendar year last night, by scoring two against Real Betis.

I just noticed from watching that video that he's actually scored quite a lot of penalties so his achievement isn't really that great.  I'll accept that some of those goals are OK but I just can't take him seriously until he's played some real football.  If he was on the pitch at a junior level Scottish match he wouldn't know what had hit him!  Literally, because that's about the only way most people can tackle him.  If you're playing against someone much better than you, the only real option you have is to physically assault them.

And that's why I'm not allowed to play Monopoly with the family at Christmas anymore.

Here's a video called 'Lionel Messi vs Shark vs Lion' for you to enjoy
