Love the podcast, but Luke couldn't have been more wrong about Messi. Andy nailed it on the head, especially regarding last season and how Messi stepped up like never before to drag that disjointed side to an impresisve double. Luke is basically saying that his loyalty is a detriment. Why should that count against him? Ronaldo going to Juve doesn't enhance his standing, if anything it's an easier job there with the gulf between Juve and the rest in Italy. Of course there's the culture change and different environment, but Juve is hardly a challenge. I do like Marcus' suggestion of Messi joining Aberdeen though, I'm all for that!

As an Italian I get excited, even a little aroused, when I hear Horncastle pronounce things correctly in Italian.

this podcast is great, the mailbag is the best part though. most of us only see European teams in champions league so the the mailbag gives you a quick cliffnotes of how teams or leagues are doing
