I’ve read a lot of articles and tweets, and watched a lot of post match analysis and reactions to Barca’s historic comeback. What really gets on my nerves is the reviews on Messi! There were a lot of “who needs him?” “Worst player on the pitch” “He did nothing in this game.”
Excuse me. He’s Lionel Messi. Just by being on the pitch he gives Barca the edge.
Yes, PSG surrounded him with three to four players almost all the time. But that mean, space was given to our other forward. There were defenders preoccupied with watching Messi that they gave players like Busi more options to pass to and gave Neymar and Rafinha more space on the flanks.
He scored the first penalty.
He along with the rest of the team never gave up.
He made the pass that lead to the second penalty (the fifth goal.)
He pointed at Neymar and told him to take it knowing that Neymar was on fire.
If Barca had to choose, in any game, especially a game like this of having him on or off the pitch…
Goal 1: Toews Goal 2: Hartman (on a delayed penalty) Goal 3: Kane (Powerplay Goal) *Game
Notes* - Anisimov’s point-streak increases to 10 games, thanks to an
assist on Kane’s goal* (as of 11.8.16…I read they credited the first goal of this game to Toews instead of Panik)
So a couple of weeks ago, I got called a ‘puck bunny’ because I was wearing my gally jersey while skating, and I said hockey players are cute…bro, I’ve been a hockey fan my whole life, my habs are my everything, I scream at my television, and get mad over stupid plays, goals, penalties, and more. Like what the hell, I’m not a puck bunny. I’m no where near being one. I have gone to all of my younger sisters games, tournaments, and watched my cousin who is a goalie play. I spend more time at the rink than at home. Hockey is my everything and I’m never EVER been a puck bunny!!! And can I just say i have been to my first NHL game ever this weekend. RANT DONE

Okay so I created the list of polish vocabulary that might be useful while talking about football due to Euro 2016 starting today. I hope everything is correct. I had to consult everything with Google, so sorry for potential mistakes in advance.
