      Would be very surprised if Virgil wins this, no matter how much he deserves it.

      Well that was a surprise, not! Messi wins for the 6th time, surely it’s time for a change now. The whole thing is beyond a joke now.

      Read somewhere they do press for a week before. Seen a leaked picture earlier that had all the positions bang on in the same post.

      Shame really, if you base it off of last season, any bias aside, I think Virgil deserves it more. But it is what it is.

      Corrupt bas**rds..

      Klopp was right... if your going for the best player ever then give it to Messi every year.. but best player of the season then it has to be Virgil..

      I stupidly thought that It might actually go to Virgil as this was the biggest one of them and the award that holds the most Kudos. Virg thoroughly deserved it but in a funny way maybe he is better off without it,  and the club maybe too. He becomes one of these promise pieces, another galactic in waiting if he wins the award. Am sure he would swap it for a league winners medal.

      Totally agree with you.  The trophy seems to go to only Spain and then they are desperate to sign the winners if by a miracle they don't have the player.   It is a complete bullshit award.

      Last 11 years it’s been shared between Barca and Madrid. Probably the 2 most powerful clubs.

      Probably would have given it to Virgil myself but the way people are going on about Messi in here is ridiculous  :lmao:

      51 goals & 22 assists in 50 games is incredible & if Salah or Mane had a season like that we'd probably all be screaming for him to win it over Van Dijk. It's not a fix & the reason he wins it more or less every season is because he's the greatest footballer of all time! Would have liked to have seen Virgil win it of course but I haven't got many complaints about Messi pipping him to it

      Been shared between them because for the last decade Messi & Ronaldo have been head and shoulders above the rest. Apart from last year when it was bizarrely given to Modric I can't have many complaints about who the award has went to recently

      didn't help them much in the CL though did it or Argentina EVER.

      Messi is of course one of the best players of all time but its just tedious giving him the award every bloody year, this was a chance to award the best defender in the world last year but they went for the safe option give it to an attacking player from Barcelona or Real Madrid, zzzzz.

      By the way I would have loved to see how many goals Messi could have gotten in the Premier league, much tougher league than the Spanish one, its one of the reasons why I actually rate Ronaldo above Messi, he's excelled in more than just 1 league and 1 club!

      Yeah in a sh*t La Liga last year and he disappeared in their two biggest games of the season.

      Do you really think Messi/Ronaldo was better than Salah 2 seasons ago (2017/18), if so why?? Salah had an amazing season that year not just for us but also for his country Egypt. Messi does very well in an easier league where the team is 100% set up around him.

      Anyway they may as well rename it Ballon D'Espania, as you have to play for a Spanish club to win the f**king thing, its a joke trophy these days and what the hell is an individual trophy in a team sport anyway, its a weird concept.

      Messi won his domestic league & Vrgil won the European Cup, both are pretty impressive titles. As for International performances, Virgil has won exactly the same for Holland as Messi has for Argentina. Nothing.

      And to say the Premier League is much tougher than La Liga is a proper Talksport shout. Look at the Champions League / Europa League finalists over the 10 or so years, Spanish teams have mostly given English teams a spanking over the last decade.

      A final point is I believe the Ballon D'or is awarded over the whole calendar year, not the previous season. Virgil has still been very good this season but we've only kept a couple of clean sheets in 20 odd games. Messi is tearing it up in La Liga with 9 goals in 9 and five assists

      Oh you're one to talk about Salah you were crying in another thread the other day saying we should sell him!

      And yes I do think Messi was slightly better in 17/18. More goals, more assists, won the title losing only one game and also his domestic cup.

      What's this myth about La Liga being sh*t? Have you seen the state of the Premier League? Absolutely dire apart from ourselves and City last year
