According to the introduction of this feature, Our 10 Men of 2010, they
Of the 10, there were Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Samuel Eto'o, Didier Drogba, Brett Holman (don't you give me that "Who's Holman?", missy, he is our flawless Aussie son ok :< ♥), Honda Keisuke, Neymar, and, of course, our very own Iniesta and Messi.
So here is Iniesta's article, AKA Sid Lowe fanboying (a lot) over Iniesta, and proof I was not joking about the Star Wars thing. For many of you, there's probably not a lot that is Brand New Information, but I think it is still worth a read. :')
When I finish copying down Messi's article, I'll post that one up, because my back is killing me atm.

There was an article about Barcelona football's influence [on Spain's World Cup win] (AKA Sid Lowe fanboying over Barça) and a fair bit about La Masia, and I thought I'd share it here. Basically it's a whole lot of fanboying, which I'm sure we can all relate to. It's fabulous. :')
Here is the article!
FROM LITTLE THINGS BIG THINGS GROW
How Barcelona’s youth academy won the World Cup, and produced the greatest player on the planet.

There are also two articles as part of Football+'s "Our 10 Men of 2010" feature, which, among others, covers Iniesta and Messi separately. For Iniesta, they fanboy (it's Sid Lowe again, jsyk) and talk about his humbleness and his hero-status, and they somehow incorporate Star Wars into it, idek, it's both hilarious and a bit confusing. For Messi, they talk about... well, they just fanboy over him. They take ten achievements of his and talk about Why He Is So Fabulous. :')
Would you guys be interested in reading about them? If not, that's cool. :) If so, should I smush them into the one entry, or separate them? (they are rather long articles, ftr)
is this picspam in order of time? no.
in order of hotness? nu-huh.
in order of hipsternes? wrong again.
it's in order of colours, because we all know in this club we care about fashion sense.

4. A REALLY INTERESTING ARTICLE FROM THE BBC CALLED "MESSI MENTOR IN X FACTOR SEARCH":
By Matthias Krug
Consider a world without Argentine superstar Lionel Messi.
It is hard to imagine, but with the exception of Real Madrid supporters, millions of football fans around the planet should be eternally thankful to one Catalan of whom they have probably never heard.
Josep Colomer is the man credited with the discovery some 10 years ago - in Rosario, Argentina - of a 13-year-old youngster who would go on to rule world football.
( tl;dr? NO! DO read!Collapse )
