For all you guys calling Ronaldo Penaldo know that last season he became the best player in Italian league. The third league in a roll that he would achieve such an honour. Let Messi come out of his Barcelona cage. Time don reach, La Liga is not a prison ooooooo..let him come out. Even if it is the Chinese league let him go...
unfortunately same with fergie

before coming to Manchester United, Sir Alex Ferguson managed St Mirren, Aberdeen winning 3 Scottish League titles, 4 Scottish cups, 1 UEFA Cup winners cup. He even managed the Scottish National team and took them to the 1986 world cup. Know your fact before putting them up.

You bark about "Winning champions league". Let's say sneidjer deserved the 2010 ballon d'or , if u want to use DAT point, never omit the trophyless Ronaldo winning ballon d'or in 2013.
What did I hear u say abt '2012'?.
Stop relating and depending Ronaldo ballon d'or wins with Messi's own. What history will remember is Messi-5 ballon d'or, Ronaldo-5 ballon d'or (Until further notice)
Come December, If Messi wins the ballon d'or, 7 years later an ignorant fanatic will come and argue how sallah deserved it (As if we all didn't witness how Messi was by cosmic distance the best player this year)
Isn't ballon d'or awarded for the best player by individual performance?

I ask again...was modric better than Ronaldo individually 2seasons ago??

Josskute:
you are the one mistaken Oga, cos Quagliarella was clearly robbed. That's the point I was trying to make, you'd have understood if you were remotely smart enough.

If the best award was by highest goal scorer, can you tell me why Ronaldo didn't win more than one Laliga player of the season award??

So with ur logic , we should also say VVD will also win this year's balon d'Or... He was the best defender in UCL and the premiership and got to the final of the nations league

In your opinion, Who do you think deserves to win the Balon d'or?

Using the same format last time...it's gonna be VVD... Would hv been Messi if Ronaldo won his 6th last time instead of modric cos Ronaldo was far better than modric 2seasons ago... He even performed at the WC , scored more goals than modric but he was denied despite setting a new record in the CL , scoring in 10 consecutive games ... Won the CL , scored 15 CL goals including an overhead kick in Turin.... What Ronaldo did in 2018, Messi dint match that in 2019... .... Messi fans were screaming modric deserved it but now that the table has turned , they want it to b given to Messi instead of VVD that had a performed better than modrics 2018 season

MANE? Thats odd. He had like 3 great games in the UCL and was Liverpools 3rd best player in the League. Ahead of VVD, Alisson and Messi? I dont agree.

Pls stop mentioning Messi... He only won la Liga... A league without competition... Was a disaster in the Copa America...was trashed 4.0 by Liverpool cudnt win Copa del Rey against Valencia.... Only winning la Liga back to back...that ain't significant... It's a usual thing... Mane was better than Messi last season... Just cos he's a black African, they wudnt recognise him... He also took Senegal to the final of the African cup of Nations... Scored both goals for Liverpool tonight... Joint top scorer in the EPL... Despite not playing for the best team in the EPL... unlike Messi that plays for the best team in la Liga by miles

Before tonight the only thing Mane had ahead of Messi was winning the UCL in which he scored 4 goalscompared to Messi's 12 goals. Messi had more goals, assists, MOTM awards and on paper the better tournament.

He won the Premier league highest goal scorer while Messi was not only won Laligas golden boot, he also won Laligas the golden ball and the European golden boot


Copa Del Rey? Ok,,,,

Mane got knocked out of the FA cup around the third round,

knocked out of the Carling cup,

beaten in the Community Shield,

Lost the EPL despite being about 9 points ahead,

didnt stand out in the AFCON where he finished 2nd, Messi finished 3rd in the Tournament that is better rated,.

VVD should win it, Messi 2nd, Alison or Mane( I admittedly underated him) 3rd

Stop mentioning Messi yen yen yen.
Some posts ago, you said Sneijder is not a defender. Now, you have forgotten that Messi didn't lose Champions League due to his poor performance but due to the poor defence of his teammate.
Or have you forgotten so soon that Messi scored a freekick in the previous leg of that fixture?

Rubbish talk .. when u guys were insulting Ronaldo that Ajax knocked him out despite scoring in both legs ...he was the only juve player that scored in the knock out... Barca was a disaster in that second leg every player Messi inclusive cos if the defenders 4kd up by conceeding too many goals, the strikers also 4kd up by not scoring at least one... So because he scored in the first leg, he should now b exempted...

All trash... U say Messi finished 3rd... With a disastrous tournament , a tournament that other players helped him then he was red carded... Mane had a very good tournament... U can't compare the EPL to la Liga in competitiveness... Liverpool will defeat all those nonsense teams in la Liga... Barca as a whole will not survive the EPL... U think it's by Winning English teams in the EPL.... Winning the UCL is rated higher than winning any league title... Man city only failed to win UCL but their players we're not considered in the top 3 , so Messi best chance is 3rd , that's if he's lucky

Messi had a disastrous tournament? No... He had a goal and an assist while playing deep. Not a good tournament but certainly not disastrous.

What do you mean EPL is more competitve than LaLiga, the league simply didnt have enough quality, City has shown us what quality can do, 100 points followed by 97 points? Where is the competiton? Liverpool last season was one of the luckiest team I have ever seen in my life, yet they didnt win the league.... they just were not good enough.

Winning the UCL is better, but Messi had a better UCL performance than Mane.

Mancity not having any players in the Top 10 is ridiculous dont try to justify it, Bernando or Sterling should have made that list.

Having seen the UEFA Top 3 (Messi, VVD, CR) I think Messi would likely finish 2nd in Balon D'or 'cos CR might make the top 3
