Anyone who thinks thereís a chance of Messi coming = on crack.
Anyone who thinks heís not up to it = on crack and crystal meth.

How else are they supposed to keep going once the crack wears off?

Messi will go to whoever pays him the most. He blarted like a titty babbie when he's beloved Barcelona couldn't afford to pay him what he wanted.

I read this morning heís been offered 1.2 billion for 2 years in The Middle East.
 What I didnít get about his Barcelona departure is if he wanted to stay so badly, why didnít he just drop his wage demands to make it financially visible for the club to keep him?

(I think he'd throw the balance of everything off I mean if Ronaldo with his physical attributes was more a hindrance than help at Man Utd then I mean I don't think it would be much different especially given the percussive nature of the division and that we'd be essentially set up to carry him which is just about fine if you're Man City with Haaland but even then he has actually adapted to the way they play and at the top of the game now you need everyone pulling all of their weight but I don't know of course this is all mad)

This is going to sound mad but would he be all that? I get it itís Messi but heís deffo on the wane and my worry is heíd be a drag on us like Ronaldo at ManYew. I donít think heíd come but Iíd be posting on the worried thread as to the impact.

We ainít getting Messi but in 41 games this season heís been involved in 40 goals. Thatís hardly on the wane. Plus 6 months ago he proved himself yet again the best in the world. Good fat chewing convo though.

That isnít what happened though.
(Granted the crying happened).

He agreed a 50% pay cut, and Barcelona withdrew the offer.

(were forced by the La Liga to withdraw the offer)

Yes Iím not a big fan of some of his choices, but in the context of what he can earn he more than tried to facilitate a way to stay at Barca.

Isn't there something in Spanish law that makes it illegal for a new contract to reduce a persons wage from that previously in place ? So Barca couldn't reduce his wages regardless of what Messi offered to take and couldn't afford him within their overall salary cap.

I've thought that too, I'd play for Villa for fuck all rather than reduce my demands to Ä1m a week then cry when they can't afford it. He's leaving PSG because they want to reduce his wages in any new deal.

Barca are trying to concoct some deal where he's on a 'low' basic wage but gets all profits of merchandise or some bollocks like that.

He offered to reduce his salary as much as he legally could (50% of his previous salary).

Spanish law says that you can't sign up for less than that, apparently as an anti-fraud measure.

I don't pretend to know why that law is there, but it appears to be pretty much cast-iron that Messi didn't leave Barcelona due to personal greed.

If he goes Saudi now though it can only be greed. There will be zero other reasons.

I saw Messi play with Mbappe and Neymar last year. Same as the other poster: he just wanders round and seems to do fuck all basically. This was PSG vs Lorient. You'd think he'd be sticking 3 past them and assisting the other two for a 7-0 drubbing. Oh no, it was 1-0 (Neymar).
If he's coming to Villa, I'm getting noshed off by Monica Bellucci on the Holte as he runs on for his debut. While Penelope Cruz waits her turn.

Just to clarify, is Penelope Cruz waiting her turn to run on for her debut, or, erm, the other thing.

There is no way, not a chance, not even the slightest possibility that 'Bella-Kotchap' is a real person.
Police still not Kotchap who put Bella in the Wych Elm?

She'd be quite a signing, but I'm not sure Emery would want two up front. We know the outrage that would cause.
