Messi – Getting better, and better and better….

Messi. Every time we think he can’t get any better, he goes and produces another memory, another mesmerising piece of skill, another record breaking goal.

Two months out and his first full game back he bangs in two goals against Roma in the Champions League while his cameo role against Real Madrid was simply majestic. The goals have continued to flow since then, a wonderful free-kick at the weekend making it seven goals in ten starts this season. What stands out though at the moment is that the Argentine magician seems to be having fun.

People questioned whether he could operate alongside Neymar when the Brazilian joined. He did. There was talk that Luis Suarez couldn’t fit in alongside his South American comrades. That was well and truly blown out of the water last season and this.

What makes the superstar so appealing to fans is his clear love of the game – it’s easy to do when you’re winning certainly but the fact that he is handing Neymar a penalty when he himself is on a hat-trick recently shows that he is as happy seeing his illustrious team-mates score as he is himself.

That’s fairly impressive when Messi could easily pull rank and add to his tally, but it shows the measure of the player, and the captain that he is. And the frightening thing is that he only seems to be getting better all the time. Frightening for his opponents, but great news for the rest of us!
