It might get Messi on the sports pages
This is what they conjured up when Barcelona put on a dazzling display to beat Man United in the European Cup final last year:
That's another fine Messi - Daily Mail
Lionel Flair is perfect 10 - Daily Star
Thrown to the Lionels - Daily Mirror
Fergie in a right Messi - Daily Express
Just Messimerising - Daily Record
It will be interesting to see if the sports' subs have any more Messi puns in their locker if the Barcelona wizard does the business against the Gunners tonight. I suspect they might.
Update: Folowing Arsenal's fightback and Theo Walcott's dramatic impact on the match, Messi puns are onhold until next week's second leg at the Nou Camp.
