Honestly, i really don't even understand why this kind of article are all over the web, it cannot be his fault, 1 player can never Win or Loose a game.

People that are getting on Messi are the once that were just waiting for 1 Barca loss, so they can jump on Messi & play down his recent accomplishments.

Barca = Messi and Messi = Barca! that's the general perception at the moment and it's undeniable that when he plays bad, Barca is not the Barca we usually know!

Barca's style of attacking which have Messi as the focus is not helping his cause either. Real has not just Ronaldo to find the back of the net but Barca clearly too reliant on Messi lately and they are paying the price big time!

Messi is a very gifted player and currently regarded as the best player of all time, but when other teams knew that he's almost the only real attacking force in Barca, putting a stop with 2-3 players is like putting the stop to Barca all together!

This is really an injustice towards other players of Barca, yes Messi is their top player, but he certainly isn't the only Player.

Idk...I do think 1 person can lose or win a match lol(pretty sure it's been done tons of times), it's just something he'll have to deal with, it comes with the territory of being regarded as the best, Ronaldo has this happen to him day in and day out.

I don't think it should apply to any player, unless the whole team does good and their best player sucked and they lose the game because of that.

People on all sides just need ammo to fuel their hate, that's all...and that goes for any team.
