The Most Ridiculous Thing I've Read So Far Today

Liverpool midfielder Steven Gerrard favorably compares his new teammate, Joe Cole, to Lionel Messi:
Messi can do some amazing things, but anything he can do Joe can do as well, if not better.
Joe Cole is a very talented player, who no doubt will help Liverpool this coming season, but saying that Cole is as good or better than Messi is like saying that Dan Quayle was John Kennedy. Cole has been a first-team pro since 2003, and he has just joined Liverpool from Chelsea, where he was surplus to requirements. What has he ever accomplished on the pitch, when it mattered (not in training), that would lead anyone to believe he's as good or better than Messi?
