Lionel Messi's Decline is Barcelona's Decline

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are no doubt the two football G.O.A.T. And their footballing abilities have won their clubs cups in every calendar year.

While the latter has performed immensely, though not like before the latter's performance and influence has wane drastically.

This is the reason why Lionel Messi's Barcelona fall short of glory against Madrid inspired Sergio Ramos.

What Messi has achieved and done for Barcelona will no doubt be remembered across epochs, ages but that is not saying that Messi's Barcelona can replicate the form of its hay days.

Espanyol's defeat of Messi's Barcelona seems to be a testament to the end of an era because Barcelona has last been defeated at home 3 years ago.

Tonight's defeat is symbolic not only to Barcelona's decline but also to Messi's.

The goals are drying off and the assists are not coming forth. These only show one thing, nothing last forever.

Barcelona are thus in for a long run in their pursuit and search for Messi's replacement. From the looks of things, the whole Barcelona's team needs a total overhaul.

The present crop of players right now are old, and the young ones are mediocre set of players.

Barcelona are in short in for a long trophy drought.
