Is It Time Up For Messi? The End Of An Era by Ehiscotch(m): 12:26am On Aug 15, 2020
Personally, I think it is. Messi's magic has waned and this has rubbed off on the whole team, as Barcelona has built its team around Messi.

Messi has to create, score and he has been doing ever since his debut but the burden is now to big for his 33 year old shoulders and without support from the midfield and attack he seems useless.

Bayern Munich were the latest team to capitalize on the fast depleting dominance of Messi and Barcelona. Last night's match seems to be the last straw that broke the camel's back for me.

Football has cycles and rotation of dominance. There is a time for teams to dominate, deteriorate and rebuild. Sadly, it's Barcelona's turn and the sooner they let go of Messi, the better for both parties.

I love Ronaldo and I'm a Cr7 fan but it has not in anyway compromised my opinion.

Messi, take a bow or next season you'd get knocked out in the UCL group stage and if the teams in La Liga sit up you'd end up in a struggle for Top 4.

Barcelona, it's time to make the hard decision. The romance has been beyond Hollywood but Messi's best years are over and you have a Herculean task ahead of you to rebuild this team. I mean, it's so glaring that you are have a Southampton team with Messi in it.

It would cost you a lot like Manchester United and AC and InterMilan and Liverpool and Arsenal. But when that cycle hits you, the sooner you realise and disintegrate and rebuild with sound values while retaining a good club culture the better.

i dnt agree with your opinion because we all know that lionel messi still have a lot to offer to barca and to football generally, barca jus need to make quality signings, get a new coach with a new game plan because this barca looks too predictable and the work load on messi is too much..
the funny thing is that if messi decides to leave barca next season, almost all top European clubs would que with their huge pay cheques even the club this mr o.p is supporting..
barca and messi had a very bad day last nite bt i knl messi would easily get over it because he is used to it and besides he had punished alot of clubs for many years..

Serie A seems to be the "pre-retirement" home for players like Messi. I think going to Inter would be perfect as he still has two years or so to play very good football but he needs to leave FCB for a new breathe of fresh air.

Modified:

To all those #FreeMessi advocates, this clearly is as much for Messi as it is for Barcelona.
The team seems miserable and too over-reliant on Messi and both parties seem to be hindering each other's progress:
Messi needs to move else he would be humiliated till the end of his career as it has been the trend recently (Barca getting knocked out disgracefully).
Barcelona have to let go of Messi, the defence, rebuild the midfield and find a new striker. All that won't happen unless the end this relationship.

Thank God Gerard Pique has accepted this.

grin Messi should have left Barca two years ago when his Career reputation was a bit still intact but rather decided to stay put because of his deluded fans that was still leading him on. When Juve lost out last week his fans came out hard on CR7 but now I believe they can eat their words and walk away with their tails in between their legs. To me I still believe CR7 is a better and more prestigious GOAT than Messi in this era!! grin

Cristiano Ronaldo is a living god. The God of Football.

Now it's clear for all to see that Messi is highly over rated and overpaid
cheesy cheesy cheesy

Neymar is a far more better player than him. If we're being honest to ourselves, Messi should be ranked as the 4th best player after Ronaldo, Neymar, Lewandowski.

Not a single career out there doesn't have its ups and downs. Messi is human and sure would experience moments of lows, but that doesn't diminish the fact he is and remains the GOAT.

That pummelling last night was on another level, truth be told.
