Am I the only one who thinks Messi is saving himself for the world cup?

Ever since he came back from his injury he's hardly look interested and is not the Messi we all know who picks up the ball at runs at opposition defences.
+1
You get a lot of these accusations going around during a world cup year, I've seen people saying this about Robin as well.

I don't think its the case at all, any player heading to the world cup wants to go into the competition in good form and high spirits.

Messi is struggling because Barca are struggling, plain and simple, they're at the end of that amazing cycle they went through between 2009-2011, their defence needs a lot of work in the absence of players like Puyol and Abidal who were the rocks at the back and i think Xavis career is coming to an end as well, there has been no real convincing replacements for any of these three, not even Fabregas in all honesty, he is no Xavi.

The bigger question here is if UEFA push through this transfer ban, they could find themselves having another very difficult campaign next year as well, its not been a good year for them, both on and off the pitch.
Actually, I agree with Cjay. That does seem to be a possibility. And as for Van Persie, it might just be the same as is with many of the probable world cup candidates (fear of fatigue and injury). They say the World Cup is the most coverted trophy, but it is the clubs that pay their wages. So as a result, the World Cup seems to be one giant mickey mouse cup to me.
+1
He's saving himself for marriage
+2
saving himself? what does that even mean? these are athletes, when you do things half-assed that's when you get injured, lose form, etc.

i think he's not physically and mentally 100%. he looks off
The world cup is a few months away with players dropping like flies this season I guess he doesn't want to get injured again
pele said something along the lines of messi cant be considered the best because hes never won the wc. if i heard that as a professional footballer from a man with THE golden balls, im gonna save myself and prove him wrong in his own country in front of his own city esp. id do a dragon ball z and spend 3 months charging up my powers just yelling and flexing non stop, then going all out for the WC.

besides look at the barca team, he can have off days. its not rooney having an off day and we can equalize against bayern. its more like no messi its ok i guess he'll be less superhuman but still other awesome teamaters could fill in because our bench is magic too and our rotation/subs used properly.
Anyone else sick of Neymar and his antics? I know it's off topic but I just find him so annoying. In the CDR final earlier he was backing into Coentrao and started to stumble like he was being fouled when he clearly wasn't. Coentrao did the diving gesture to him so Neymar proceeds to try and headbutt Coentrao and when Pepe comes over (before Pepe even touches him) Neymar starts to feign like Pepe's abusing him in some way... It's just never ending with him.

If you're going to flop on the ground at every opportunity you get, don't try playing the hard man and headbutting someone when you're called out on it. Does my head in lol. (pun intended)
+4
Real contender for Oscar awards. The "heart attack" act last week against Granada was ridiculous too.
+3
It's a shame really. As a Brazil NT fan, Neymar has been nothing short of brilliant for the Canaries. When given the freedom and responsibility he thrives on, he can really be something else.

When he moved to Europe, I expected him to dumb down on the antics, but since moving to Barca it seems like it's only gotten worse.
plz dont involve oscar into this ;)
+6
Dont get it wrong Mumbai, he's not talking about oscar, the player from chelsea. Shiwa's referring to "Oscar Award".

If you know what I mean. :P
No s**t RedElf
+10
^ lol :))
Just saw the extended highlights of the RM-Barca game.
Man, Bale is out of this world. What a player! Always loved him and I'm so glad he's doing so well for his new club.
And Ancelotti's Madrid is so entertaining to watch! Well deserved win!

I can really see them beating Bayern. If Welbeck's pace cause that much trouble to Boateng and co., I don't know what Ronaldo and Bale might do.
I for one hope Real merk Bayern. Not because i have any animosity towards them, but because of Pep and his stupid tiki-taka style.
Real are a lot more fun to watch this season than Bayern
+2
Honestly some of the comments insulting us because we refused to press Bayern while they were passing the ball amongst their defenders doing jack s**t in the process really annoyed me.
I like Bayern. I like Pep. I love their players (except Ribery, lol). But I can't say I didn't enjoy seeing them get smashed 3-0 by Dortmund while having their precious 74% possession.

Despite all of our mediocrity this season, had we taken our chances, they would have been out, simple.

I haven't been RM's biggest fan since Mou took over, but Ancelotti's side is a lot more likeable both on and off the pitch and I'm rooting for them against ze Germans!
+2
Hey Badge, can you post the link to the extended highlights on my wall, please?
+1
@teja, they weren't in English but there are some good highlights on hoofoot.com :)
go to real madrid's page...16 mins highlights with english commentary.
I see Real winning a treble. They have been very consistent this season and are on form.

Too easy of a goal for Bale, It's really like Ronaldo can take a week off and they still might pull results. Di Maria is so confident right now too. The Bayern-Real game is something to keep an eye on.
The treble is incredibly difficult, one slip up and it all goes out the window. I think Atleti will win the league and RM will win CL.
+3
They need both Bale and Ronaldo against Bayern
The CL depends on Real. The league depends on Atletico.
It's a good guess, but things might happen for them, so I'll see what happens. I have a feeling Atletico might slip up, and Madrid might get the edge to win the league.

Lol, I'm just bored after a really shocking season we had. I would like summer to come already for the World Cup. Hopefully, we will rebuild properly, but in the meantime, other football games around the world is keeping me company.
I don't know about Atletico slipping up mate. Everyone has been expecting them to drop points all season, but they keep winning all their games, even the tough ones.

I'd absolutely love to see them win, but yeah I wouldn't be surprised to see Real end up winning it.
They're definitely close to the treble.
+1
Everyone wants Atleti so slip up , but the fact is they won't. People forget Atleti were slaughtering teams in both La Liga and CL up till February.
They've already gone through a dip in form between February and March and are just now getting back into form they were in the beginning months of this season, at just the right time.

They are well aware that they probably won't get another chance like this in their lifetime and all the players are up for it. For the good of football & La Liga, Atleti has to win it this season!

The last time a team other then Barca or Madrid won the title was Valencia back in 03-04 season.
Lol at Monaco, a good lesson when billions don't mean success
what happened?
+1
... their billions lost to psg's billions... so billions still won. billionaire clubs are 1+2 in france.
+1
they lost to Guingamp in French Cup, Berbatov scored though
+1
What a goal by Bale...

Edit: And what a missed opportunity by Neymar lol.
f*****g hell! seemed like bale was on fast forward and all other players on normal speed lol
His pace and strength is incredible
It's just made so much better that he was being fouled in the process and just decided to turn on the afterburners and leave everyone behind haha.
+1
He is an absolutely incredible athlete. His running style is so powerful, its ridiculous, when he opens up like that you cant get near him.

Makes me think of a rugby winger when he goes on a run like that.
+5
Bayern defenders watching that just shat themselves. They better tiki-taka their ass all night. lol.
+3
Any normal player would go down at that chance but not Bale, he knows he has it in him to beast defenders.
And just as it was with Ronaldo, it looks like Real got the better end of the deal.
In both cases the transfers seemed ridiculous but Ronaldo more than justified his fee, Bale too seems to be following his footsteps.
Now compare Bale for 100 mil to Neymar's fee of 90 (or more?)...looks like Real got the right man
+4
lol i guess i'm the only one who didn't think it was all that special?

yeah he's fast, that's great, but i was a bit underwhlemed when i saw the video. i was expecting a screamer or dancing through 4 defenders or something at light speed.. he basically tapped it away, chased it down and nutmegged the keeper. great goal, sure, but i was expecting a bit more given all the acclaim. maybe it's one of those goals that needs to have been seen live to fully appreciate based on how the game was going at that moment. lol i hope i dont sound bitter :P
what has the world come to when a man defies every conception of the sport, and that leaves someone underwhelmed. Barata pushed him off the pitch, and Bale beat him to the ball while curving 5 yards around him. No other player on this planet is going to be able to do that, well, not until Usain Bolt starts kicking a ball around.
Well, it was a crucial goal from Bale with his unique style and speed to get past a player.

Pinto really should have fecking saved that goal ffs, but he left his legs wide open, lmao. It was a good finish though after a great run.
Shut up SIF you bitter bastard :P

Lol jk mate, i can see where you're coming from. I just checked out the highlights too and thought it'd be more spectacular, but given how he scored that at the 85th minute to single handedly win the game makes it so much more special.

Seriously, what the actual f**k does that guy eat? I used to think Ronaldo was as perfect as a player can get when it comes to physical attributes, but I can see Bale match him, or even surpass him eventually.
Amazing.
+1
It wasn't the technical aspects that impressed me SiF. As you said it wasn't an amazing pierce of dribbling or finishing.

Its the sheer athletic power on display, i mean he literally runs off the pitch and back on it when going round the player, it looked like everyone else was in slow motion, just an unbelievably powerful runner.
^Yeah seriously.
Reminds me of those FIFA goals where you have Aubameyang just running 40 yards in a straight line past Mertesacker to score.

Trust me, if Tata could rage quit, he would after that goal.
Also Barca was dominating after their goal and I was expecting them to score a second. The goal came out of nowhere.
Lol 1-1 madrid will be kicking themselves after all those missed chances
Or ramos will almost be kicking Alves! Lol.
The hopes of all United fans now lie in the hands of Mourinho and Chelsea..
+6
I want Chelsea to win it but in all honesty mate I'm just not arsed any more, we've had a miserable season and getting this club back on track is all i care about. I couldn't give a f**k who wins the title if its not United.

Liverpool fans for the better part of 20 years have pretty much celebrated any season in which United have been beaten to the league title. I've often found it sad and small time that they do this, if the tone of our supporters in recent weeks is any indication of our future then i don't think its where we should be heading as a fanbase.

Now i don't want to sound like a righteous prick and I'll apologise if it comes across that way but i think we can be bigger than them, congratulate them on the league if they win it (even if they never did it for us) and use it as fuel to get our club back to the heights we've enjoyed for over 2 decades.

We must never become like them. Ever.
+10
Don't worry, lads. Mourinho has you covered.
+2
yeah i'm not particularly arsed about who wins. while i'd prefer liverpool not to win for obvious reasons, at the end of the day, i'm still going to be pissed about our league position and more worried about the ins and outs that need to happen over the summer, preferably before the world cup (ie soon)
+1
Your recent titles were hated because you were crossing our 18, so you should understand this. Being the club with most league titles is something to boast about. And where is the rivalry if we start celebrating your victories? Anyway dude best of luck for the next season(you know i dont mean it):P
+3
I actually feel the same way, and am glad I'm not the only one who is indifferent to a certain extent.
+1
@Nokono

No offence, but rivalry? You have not won the league in 24 years, we have not been title rivals in a long time, save for a few odd seasons around 09 you have barely challenged.

I have the utmost respect for what Liverpool have achieved and in that sense we do do have a fierce rivalry. But the simple fact of the matter is that Liverpool fans have been living to see United fail rather than Liverpool to succeed.

I don't want that mentality creeping in here. The 11-12 season is a good example of this, when Aguero scored that goal to win City the title you would have thought it was Liverpool who won the league, they were happier than City fans despite the fact that Liverpool had just slumped to their worst ever league finish in the PL era that season.

Its been more about hating United than loving Liverpool with a lot of your support and that's the problem. I just don't want that here even if we do go on an extended slump. I think we can be the bigger men here is all.
+8
@ MUFC1990
Does that mean there was no rivalry before the Premier League era? There has been a rivalry between the cities for years and years, regardless of the trophy count or if either of the teams was challenging for the title. Just because Liverpool have not been title contenders for a couple decades does not mean the rivalry/animosity between the clubs has diminished any. I disagree that the hate directed towards United outweighs the love of Liverpool. It is just sort of a bonus when United doesn't do well or fails to win the league ;)
+1
There had been rivalry between Liverpool even if it not football relates
+1
we have the chance to finish 5th!!!everton still need to play mancity

Don't want 5th, we either get 4th spot or we should stay where we are
we won't get 5th ! unless we beat them at goodison on sunday !
1-1 between city and sunderland. anyone watching el classico madrid leading barca 1-0 without Ronaldo.
