We’ve never had a thing for Leverkusen’s Andre Schurrle. We’ll let you know if he shows up unexpectedly in the near future. Image: Jasper Juinen/Getty Images, REUTERS/Alessandro Bianchi.
1. Can you think of a player, either current or retired, that has come close to the awesomeness Leo Messi shows on the pitch practically every time he turns up to play? You lot should note that if the comments section turns into a Real/Barca bloodbath again, our editors and moderator are going to totally ban us from even whispering those names, let alone post semi-naked pics of their players. Be warned.
2. Is it wrong to use protective face masks in private fantasies about players? For us, things started to go a bit ‘Zorro’ when Marco Borriello started sporting one, but now they’re creeping into all kinds of unexpected scenarios, regardless of whether our chosen player has suffered a blow to the face or not.

2. Assuming that you are as surprised about the result as we were (see above question) and a neutral, do you enjoy it when a so-called team of minnows fights it’s way into the later stages of a major competition? Do you love the sniff of an upset, or believe that a Cup Final is that much more exciting when it’s a battle between the super-heavyweights?
