Three points! Three points! Three big fat juicy nutritious points! I feel like we’ve been existing on one of those detox diet plans where you eat little and often but never until you’re full up and as a result exist as a hungry and miserable, quite spotty human being.

Messi 4 – 1 Arsenal

April 8, 2010 8 Comments by Sian

Not a particularly inspired title to a post given I’d imagine most newspapers yesterday went with this theme, but a pretty fair enough one. What can be said that hasn’t been said before? Barcelona have on their team plenty of excellent players but they also have a small Argentinean one whose level of excellence is [...]
