Only players for those two Spanish clubs ever win it anyway. I mean Modric won it last year FFS. 

 

Now that was ridiculous, never in a million years should he have even been In with a shout.

Haha ronaldo ahead of mane proving this whole thing is a load of shite.

 

He got votes because of his international exploits. Portugal won that Nations League tournament in the summer, qualified for Euro 2020 and he scored a shitload of goals in the process. For Juventus he was only so-so by his own lofty standards.

I hate the way everyone bangs on about Messi being the greatest player of all time. Give me a break. Modern football in a nutshell.

Agreed. Messi wouldn't have been fit to lace Stanley Matthews' boots.

Messi is basically a one-man team at this point. Basically creates and scores everything. If they want to reward that, then whatever. As someone else said, if the criteria is "best player in a calendar year" they could give it to him every year.

By the way, I found this funny; the Guinean guy who has had info on Keita is saying that certain players aren't happy that van Dijk has been getting all the hype from the club in regards to winning the Ballon D'Or, and not Mane or Salah and that this will cause certain players to potentially want to leave and players who want to sign will take consideration of this snub as well. 

 

 

 

I don't remember if this guy had legit info - I think he was saying Keita would sign before he actually did - or if he's just some angry African guy who should be ignored, but it's a weird take.

Probably angry at the lack of African love, Virg was the only one realistically likely to have a shot this year. Mo got the plaudits the year before because he was the best. Probably pissed at the rainbow laces too like the rest of the online African, Arab, American, Eastern European online fans

I'm gonna go with ignore, there, I think.

Mane and Salah are off in January, we finish 5th, and Klopp leaves in the summer.

 

It's over.

I was looking at the previous winners and I was surprised to see that Kevin Keegan won it twice when he was at Hamburg. I didn't know he did that well there.

When Keegan won it,it was only considered European footballer of the year and not 'World' footballer. There was some kind of merger of two awards back in the early 2000s which gave it more prestige and encompassed more of world football.

I think even he was surprised! I think his award was just before the merger wasn't it?

Yeah. He was a cracking player Owen but I dont think he's up there with others on the list.

Well he wouldn’t have been able to run in them, they weighed a ton and would probably be too big for him. But he would have adapted, overcome and succeeded.

I agree with this, he's clearly the best player of his era but of all time is quite a joke for me. I think he'd be fucked with the tackles of yesteryear. I suppose you can only compete against your contemporaries and only use the rules available to you though. It's basically a non-starter. The teams I've only watched on recordings got the shit kicked out of them and still won but I'm fairly certain with these rules they'd all be gassed by the 70th minute or so because of their lifestyle. Works both ways though, if those players had the same technology and fitness advice available to them whose to say they wouldn't be even better than they were.

Two peas from the same pod. Hope Arsenal pay 180 million for Ronaldo and he flops big time on a return to the PL and gets hacked to fuck. Watch Morgan change alliances then, the fucking gob shyte. Like I said, always looking for confrontation and getting his fingers burnt.

With a name like Piers you'd think anybody would avoid the limelight,especially social media.
