Maybe not as good as Messi atm.. the potential is there though?
Messi has service from other players ie strikers.. seems to me Suarez has to do much by himself or have I got that wrong?
I don't think so. All I'd say is that I think Messi is in the very special player bracket while Suarez is in the category just below that.
You make a very valid point about the quality of service and players around them though. I think Suarez would be lethal in that Barca side.
I think Messi is a once in a generation player, like Cruyff or Pele. My opinion is that in time he will be seen as the best ever. No-one today really compares to him, even Ronaldo.
Suarez is a very good player. (He's a *** too.) But he's not Messi and isn't going to be Messi. That's not a criticism of him. Messi stands alone in terms of ability and continuing achievement.
And Messi doesn't spend half his time diving and whingeing and getting his retaliation in first.

I think it’s been a while since he's actually gone down don't you think? I know its covered ground, but don't you agree he's battled through a number of challenges of late and not gone down, unlike some other high profile players recently? In fact think he got his reward last night after fighting off a block that I’m sure others would not have.
