To say the fanfare around Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez is sycophantic would be an understatement.
A classic example of a media hyperbole bandwagon that everyone gets carried away on, never truly forming their own opinion but instead reading the saturated market of content out there and just spouting out that opinion as their own.
Barcelona’s ‘holy trinity’ have been built up as some kind of demigods due to their goalscoring exploits, whilst rivals Real Madrid’s own supernatural trio, Bale, Benzema and Ronaldo are made out to be some kind of antichrists.
The pro-Barcelona and anti-Madrid stance taken by many is a baffling one. If anything, it should be anti both of them given the tax evasion charges around Messi, Mascherano and Neymar, whilst the Los Blancos are hardly a loveable bunch with their use of the Spanish government.
But if the pro-MSN attitude is going to be taken over Messi, Suarez and Neymar’s goalscoring records then it’s only fair the MSN fanboys realise that Real Madrid’s ‘holy trinity’ are far more effective.
In La Liga this season, MSN average a goal every 99 minutes, however, BBC guarantee you a goal every game with one of the trio finding the net every 88 minutes in the league.
MSN are easier on the eye, perhaps, but don’t let that cloud your judgement when you are debating who you’d rather have when your team is in need of goal.
