The return of Super Spot the Difference

La Liga Loca canâÂÂt honestly remember what film it was in now (although itâÂÂs got a funny feeling it was Speed, conjuring up once again images of Sandra BullockâÂÂs smooth, dark leg pumping away at that accelerator, grrr!)

But for some reason the phrase âÂÂPop Quiz, motherfu**er!â just keeps going round and round our heads.     

Maybe because the La Liga Loca Shooting Fish in a Barrel department has â with, we really ought to admit, a little help from one of our online friends â decided that after the rip roaring success of previous tricky teasers, like:

Real Madrid Super Spot the Difference,

Super Spot the Difference: Robinho, and...

Not Super Spot the Difference... Friday Special,

... itâÂÂs time for another quiz to get you chewing your pencil and scratching your heads like a bunch of nit-infested infants.

Yes, itâÂÂs a glorious return for La Liga LocaâÂÂs patented Super Spot The Difference Competition, boys and girls.

ThereâÂÂs a spare Champions League place with Real Madrid up for grabs for anyone who knows the answer, courtesy of todayâÂÂs sponsor: Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.*

So, whatâÂÂs the difference between


âÂÂUNESCO should seriously think about declaring Leo Messi a world heritage site. Like the Acropolis in Athens, the Pyramids in Cairo, The Colliseum in Rome, Westminster Abbey, New YorkâÂÂs Statue of Liberty, GranadaâÂÂs Alhambra or BarcelonaâÂÂs Sagrada Familia.

"Messi is a unique species and he should be protected. He turns football into an art form. Future generations in coming centuries when the world is a different place should have the pleasure of being able to delight in his magic as we do now. A magic that has no limits, and amazes us game by game.

"Messi plays for Barcelona but he belongs to us all. He will go down in history as the best player of all time and will form part of the collective memory of fans from all over the world.âÂÂ

(Lluis Mascaró, Sport, January 2009.)  

And this:

âÂÂThe Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at the Parthion, the Collosus of Rhodes, the Temple of Artimis, the Lighthouse of Alexandria, the Mausoleum of Maussollos and the Great Pyramid. They are the seven wonders of the ancient worldâ¦

"Today, UNESCO is in charge of preserving the cultural heritage of those sites that exist on earth. The Great Pyramid is the only one left, although there is a more modern list which includes the Great Wall of China and the Eiffel Tower, along with the Kremlin, the Statue of Liberty and the Alhambra in Granada.

"ItâÂÂs time UNESCO included Ronaldinho in its world heritage list. Ronaldinho turns football into art. His magic is endless and he has the special gift of being able to convert something as banal as kicking a ball into a work of art⦠Ronaldinho is on course to be the best player of all time.âÂÂ

(Lluis Mascaró, Sport, November 2006.)
