As powerful as Barcelona is, and as marketable as Messi is, I just think the momentum of leading Liverpool to their first league title since 1990 and Netherlands first title since 1988, is just a wave too big even for UCL-winning Messi. I know he has his handicaps, and Messi has his advantages, but now that we see how powerful the African, North American and Asian markets are, we must not forget the influence the English media has over those markets. It's a massive if, of course. The chance of Liverpool winning the league title, Netherlands winning the EURO, and VVD being the star player in both victories, is very slim. My point is simply that if it does happen, I cannot see him not winning the BDO.
