Have fun with this, please. But play nice…
“[Lionel] Messi can do some amazing things, but anything he can do Joe [Cole] can do as well, if not better. He used to shock us in training by doing footy tricks with a golf ball that most players can’t even do with a football. I really fancy Joe for the [player of the year] award this season.”
Steven Gerrard on his new Liverpool team-mate. But Seriously.
Messi hears what Steven Gerrard said about Joe Cole
I don’t know what to add to this, really. Messi is much better than Cole, obviously. And, er, that’s about it. Gerrard needs glasses. And someone to tell him when to open his mouth. And better taste in music – too much Phil Collins f*cks with a man’s brain. Apart from that, he’s great.
I mean, Joey Cole is a fantastic talent and all, but to compare him with Messi – seemingly based on a few tricks in training and not a lot else – is way beyond absurd. Perhaps if it came to the World Golf Ball Keepy-Up Championship, Cole would prevail. Otherwise, forgetaboutit.
In Big Ronglish, Stevie G has been ‘watching cartoons’ if he thinks any English player can touch Messi.
