        the only reason they got there was ronaldo popping off vs sweden.
        in 2018 they only got a draw vs spain because ronaldo scored a hattrick.
        he carried them on his back for 12+ years and this is how his coach repayed him. by spitting on him and chucking him to the bench in his last wc.

        Being a manlet has its' benefits in football. You center of gravity is lower so you can dribble better than taller players in a reduced space.

        ignore the hgh from childhood please

        Either you are a madridcuck or you don't know shit about football. How is HGH going to benefit a fucking manlet? Does HGH make you more skilled at dribbling? Because that is what Messi is good at. If you told me Penaldo took HGH or other PED I could believe you because the man is a beast and his specialty is running fast and scoring.

          Have you ever seen the angles at which Messi can bend his ankles and not get injured? Have you ever noticed how he gets inured rarely in general? HGH does not affect all parts of the body at the same rate. It strengthens tendons and connective tissue exceptionally well. It also proves regeneration. Just because he didn't grow to be tall, doesn't mean he didn't have supraphysiological doses.

    You say that as if Messi isn't some football Frankenstein monster who has been on HGH his entire life, played for the Most Doped Team of All Time in 00s-10s Barcelona, managed most successfully by Pep 'Deca-Durabolin busted' Guardiola, and most recenty won a world cup literally bought by the state who owns him now as a player in the 'Dodgiest Run to the Final, and Final, of Any World Cup of All Time'.

    The funny thing about your OP image is that Ronaldo still has him beat by most every footballing metric, and would have probably won the WC vs France if he had decided to go to PSG rather than Man Poo.

        Might as well shut down the entire club when Modric and Kroos stop playing. Valverde has good skill, but he doesn't seem to have the smarts needed to play at CM. The young Ngubu, just like all blacks, can't ever become world class for the same reason (lack of football IQ). The old Ngubu is okay as long as he gets carried by two smart white CMs in front of him.
        When Modric, Kroos and Benzema leave, this club is going down the drain.

      It is so shitty to keep using Rock Lee as an example of "hard work vs talent" too
      It is a major blackpill because in Naruto's world, only the gifted and truly talented prevail, this gets even worse in Boruto
      Rock Lee remains a literal who jobber, Might Guy had his gigantic moment but ultimately lost and became a perma cripple
