Wondering why & how Messi missed the penalty? Yes we did too. Deeply. And hunted around for photographic evidence that Martian Messi had been replaced by Earth Messi shortly before the game (they look similar but the latter works less, stares into space more and mucks up penalty kicks). Or maybe Sevilla’s Javi Varas was hiding a mutated X chromosome that gave him special football attracting powers, but that’s something only Pep can figure out in his spare time by using his Cerebro. Of course, it doesn’t help when a brawl breaks out right behind you and your childhood friend is being strangled just when you’re trying to concentrate a bit. Anyway, after a lot of hard work, we are happy to declare that we have it all figured out for you. Here’s a very sensible explanation (by our standards at least) for why Leo Messi made an elaborate hash of his penalty kick.
