Before the end of the Barcelona’s time, Messi led his team win Real Madrid twice. Later she was signed to DNA Model Management and Models 1 in London. There are many players rumoured to be joining the Special One at Madrid.
“Good things come in small packages” can rightly be said about this short statured yet destructive Argentina and Barcelona forward Lionel Andres Messi. Yet again, he has won the 2011 FIFA Ballon d’Or beating Real Madrid’s Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, at a ceremony in Zurich. He won the World Player of the Year award for the third time in a row, thus becoming the first player since Michel Platini (1983-1985) to achieve this remarkable feat.

Jose Mourinho. With the squad he had at Chelsea, they should have done a clean sweep. If he used a rotation policy, last season they would have won everything. They looked tired in the 2nd leg of the Champions League semi final, and dropped valuable points in the league due to the high profile games every 3 days. With the squad Benitez has had, he has performed miracles to achieve what he has.

Upon Ronaldinho’s departure from the club, Messi inherited his number 10 shirt. In the competition of Champion League, Messi got 2 points in the last seven minutes. In the next league game, it began with a friendly relationship between the two teams. Messi got a score from a free kick and assisted another to stop the opponents.

It was over in 10 minutes after Xavi had give Barca the lead.

They are out from the champions league, they are out from Carling cup and most recently they are out from FA cup. Seeing the current position and performance one can easily think of Liverpool not finishing in top four this season in the premier league, so they can be out from next year’s Champions league also.

I refuse to buy touristy t-shirts when I travel but my cousin, a native Madrileno, assures me that Kukuxumusu shirts are not touristy at all and a staple for most in the city. Even if you are sitting on the fence about buying a shirt once you start going through the packages of t-shirts you will find one whimsically designed shirt that you have to buy. The shirts are made in Basque and every design is very unique. Usually you see them hanging on the outside of the souvenir shops in Madrid. There is also a store right off Plaza de Isabel II by the opera house that has all the new designs in stock.

2nd year. As we could not compete with the big money spenders, we could not get great players. We did however get a great goalkeeper in Pepe Reina.
