Chelsea beware, 5 years ago today Lionel Messi did this.... is a post from: Just Football

18th April 2007. Exactly five years ago today, Lionel Messi channelled the spirit of Maradona. Not by going off on a cigars, booze and goodness-knows-what-else-fuelled bender, or by losing his composure in a press conference, shouting 'la concha de tu madre' at journalists and storming off telling everybody in the room to suck it.

For whatever reason, the holiday season hasn't been kind to the big teams of the Premiership I have a theory based on the higher wages and proportional amount of booze that allows one to buy.

Alcohol is not merely a constituent of a good party. Rather, it's the party's host.

Shay Given knows this, which is why he issued a call to the Republic of Ireland fans before last night's Euro 2012 qualifier vs. Armenia to hit the booze. Shay apparently felt that a wee dram or ten might help the faithful blow the roof off the stadium and simultaneously propel the team to victory.

Capello is right: alcohol DOES cast a shadow over our game

In football, just as in our ­society as a whole, there is a booze culture that is ­careering out of control. So, I was interested to hear Fabio Capello say Andy Carroll drinks too much. I have no idea whether the Liverpool star has been hitting the bottle too hard, but I know ­today's players are the product of a system that makes it tough for clubs to educate them how to refuel.

As if the Gold Cup loss to Mexico wasn't bad enough, we had to go and give away an early lead to the Sounders, who then took us to school for about 70 minutes.
