Has never seen Messi play ^

Or like 80% of left footed players. For some reason predominately left footed players stand out more for me in terms of their lack of a weak foot. Right footed players (according to my conclusive eye test) seemingly have a more reasonable left peg.

Okay reluctant then...my point still stands
Nah Lamela is waaaaayyyy more one-footed than Messi. Messi takes regular "push on" touches with his right foot when dribbling and I can never remember him taking shots with the outside of his boot like Lamela did for Harry's first goal.

As I've mentioned I love Lamela but his right foot sees about 3% action.

Strange to see all the criticism of him not use his right foot for the shot. If you had one punch as a boxer to land a knockout blow with either yer strong hand or yer weaker hand what would you choose? All that matters is that we scored from it, Played well tonight and contributed.

Exactly. Im a leftie myself, and i got that a lot when i played in my younger days. Biased world

mon the lefties! Fellow leftie as well. Probably the righties are just jealous of us having better technique, artistic nature, shagging ability and being just generally better than the masses ?‍♂️

Why is this only ever said about lefties? There are loads of right footed players whose left foot is just for standing

Yeah it’s weird all these right-footed players who are weak on left foot and don’t use don’t get a mention but soon as you get left footer who doesn’t like using right foot people become obsessed about it!

The left-ist pigs!!

(left-handed master race btw, although can’t kick a football for shit with either foot).
