This cheered me up a bit. It’s true I’ve been feeling a bit gloomy about a few things related to Barça but the last 24 hours or so have improved things. First there was Messi’s hat-trick for Argentina against Guatemala last night which suggests he’s not too worried about the taxman and he may be finally over his injury. Then this afternoon Montoya, Bartrá, Thiago and Tello all performed well in Spain’s semi-final win over Norway in the Euro under-21s. Neymar’s golazo in Brazil’s 3-0 win against Japan in the opening game of the Confederations Cup tonight topped the lot.
