Sticky: Book Discussion Post.
Aaand here is the last of the current Football+ mag's issue of Barça-related articles! \o/

Again, as part of the Our 10 Men of 2010 feature, here is the bit on Lionel Messi, whom Jonathan Pippard and Tony Harper fanboy over. There are no Star Wars references, and again, there is probably not a lot that is Brand New Information for many of you, but it's still a good read. :) And away we go!

10 REASONS WHY LEO DESERVES EVERY SUPERLATIVE
Words:
Jonathan Pippard, Tony Harper

In football, unlike tennis or golf, swimming or track and field, there is no clear way to determine number one. And yet it seems many agree: Leo Messi is the choice of most football fans and, more tellingly, the players too.

Disclaimer: Spelling and grammar mistakes are probably my typos, sorry about that. Any factual mistakes are not mine though, so if you have a beef about it, you can contact Football+ and ask for Pippard's and Harper's addresses. :D

Our 10 Men of 2010 - Andres Iniesta

Once again, TYFYT! \o/
Another Football+ article! \o/
According to the introduction of this feature, Our 10 Men of 2010, they cornered got 9 acclaimed football writers to choose "the player who captivated them the most over the past year". And then they fanboyed over them.
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.


MAN OF THE MOMENT

'A more worthy winner is hard to imagine'Collapse )

Words: Sid Lowe
Disclaimer: Spelling mistakes are probably my typos, and I apologise. Any grammar mistakes, however, I am confident are not mine, I just followed whatever Lowe piffed down. Any factual mistakes are also not mine, so if you have a bone to pick, Lowe is your man. XD

Further reading: From Little Things, Big Things Grow (btw I went back and edited a few [embarrassing] typos that I made when typing out that article. Please let me know if I've missed anything. :) )


TYFYT! \o/
Over the weekend, I picked up Football+ magazine (Australian-based, thus all the hubbub about Australian football):


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!

Sid Lowe reports.

[And here is a bit more about La Masia, belonging with the same article. Crybaby Iniesta! Awwww! :')]

Words: first article, Sid Lowe; second article, Matthew Hall.
Disclaimer: Any spelling/grammar mistakes are probably mine, and I apologise. Any factual mistakes, however, are not, so please write to Lowe or Hall if you have a bone to pick. XD
Edit: Fixed a few of said [embarrassing] spelling errors, although I might've still missed a few. Please let me know if you see anything! :)

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)


TYFYT!
Visca! \o/
