Yesterday, whilst walking from the dentist to the Camp Nou (to attend -in situ- the Barça-Arsenal game), I daydreamed about the possible outcome of the match and the English press reaction to it... and one word came on top of all the others: obliterated.

I think I'm becoming a phychic.

But still they wanted more, and more, and more. There seemed to be a strange, bloody-minded determination not to recognise him. So Messi provided it. He started racking up goal after goal but they said that anyone could score goals in Spain. So last night he became top scorer in the Champions League. For the second successive season. And, for those who had forgotten Rome, he obliterated Arsenal into the bargain. Now they're saying Messi is the best player in the world. It shouldn't have taken last night to realise it.
