Reminds me of the clips of George Best in his prime when everyone would kick lumps out of him and he'd somehow keep going.

Just shows what you can do if you stay on your feet rather than dive at the slightest contact

Everyone dives at some point. Messi has even been booked for it before.

That maybe so, but Messi is one of the few that don't do it religiously. The sad thing about that video is it highlights why players dive. Honesty doesn't always pay as the referees don't appear to be willing to give fouls if the player satys on his feet.

On the whole, despite the odd dive, Messi is a great example to other players. He gets kicked at more than any other player in the world and stays on his feet for the majority of the time. I would be interested to know when he was last booked or caught by the cameras to be diving? I know he did early on in his career, but I can't think when he last did and I watch a lot of Barcelona games.

Messi :

He was definitely booked earlier this season for it against Sociedad.

Yeah, I was going to say he was booked in a league game for diving in the penalty area, think he's also been booked 3-4 times for handball, as in Spain the refs are cracking down on this.

Greatest player to ever lace a pair of boots imo, now if only he'd play in a decent league, would love to see him playing in the prem at some point, doubt that very much though.

1. Messi
2. Best
3. Maradona

Just the 5 goals for him so far tonight. Crazy. He's like a white Andy Cole.
