      The best player for the last 11 seasons has been the little man. Jesus Christ it is so obvious!

      Except he hasn't been. Just because he's arguably the best ever, doesn't automatically mean he's the best player every season for the last 11 years.

      Exactly what I have been arguing. Virgil won the f**king CL last season while in the second leg Messi showed exactly how good he is...What did Messi archive exactly other than the league title and scoring a bunch of goals? Both things are laughable since the Spanish league is a joke anyway. They probably still give him the Ballon D'Or long after he quit playing  :roll:

      Load of old bollocks, biased and corrupt voting just to massage messi's  ego, and not upset the la liga lovers.

      Sorry - but it’s the GOAT himself Baresi saying that VVD deserves it

      Who are we to argue with the master Baresi.  What other league can the best team in the world go away to Newcastle and draw. This league is brutal especially for Forwards so for me the biggest influence a player has had on a team in the toughest league in the world is Virgil by a country mile.

      He won the league and scored over 50 goals with another 20 plus assists. Crazy numbers.

      We'd win La Liga if we were in it, scoring more goals as well, lets see how he would do on a cold winters day/night at Stoke. La Liga is crap compared to the Prem, basically just 4 good teams and the rest are complete sh*te, its much more competitive in the Prem.

      Usually the winner comes from the European Champions in a year without the WC/EC. How many times did Ronaldo win it off the back of winning the European Cup? That's what VVD has done.

      What did the convicted tax fraudster win this year? La Liga again. Well done him. Failed to win the Spanish Cup again, failed to win the European Cup again, failed to win the Copa America again. Failed to deliver the serious tin on 3 occasions, and got himself dismissed in the CA as a send off. That's apparently worthy of winning the Golden Ball these days.

      This trophy is supposed to be for the best player over the last 12 months. If you want to give it every year to the best player over the past 5-10 years, that's a different discussion.

      Check this out, in the link the word 'bizarre' is used in relation to the voting system, in actual fact Van Dijk got most votes in the important, most relevant votes section, Messi won by getting a handful of nominations from the more obscure footballing nations.  Bizarre indeed and perfectly explains why he and Ronaldo win the award which nobody is interested in every year.

      He'd probably score about 6.

      Keeps the multinational pimps Nike and Adidas happy.

      Only pubescent school boys get excited over the Ronaldo/Messi debate anyhow. If you spend half your time arguing on social media over who's the 'GOAT' between Messi and Ronaldo or why one isn't on the cover of FIFA and the other is (while running fan accounts and such) then you're nothing but a degenerate with no outlook on life. F***ing saddos.

      I know he's the GOAT but that doesn't mean he should just get the award every season.
      If Modric deserved to win last year you can be sure van Dijk deserved it this year.

      Must state in the rules you have to be a attacking player of sorts given all the players that have won it. :f_doh:  I genuinely thought pound for pound their respective positions VVD was heads above anyone else. He was even odds on to win it, the mind boggles sometimes

      He didn't.

      I understand Van Dijk had an incredible season but so did Messi. He was also top scorer in the UCL and he did score two in the first leg against us. You can't say it all comes down to one game at Anfield when all of the Barca team froze!

      You say it can’t come down to one game but seem okay with it coming down to number of goals scored. I Whilst Messi scores an incredible amount of goals, it’s an unfair argument IMO because Virgil is never going to score many, just like Messi would never make as many tackles and get as many clean sheets as Virgil.

      I thought it was an award based on the performance of players over the course of a year, not a goal scoring award. Its essentially a glorified golden boot award if its based on Messi scoring an insane amount of goals. Put him in Virgil’s position and see how well he does because for all the glamour of Messi being top scorer last season, I believe we kept the most clean sheets with Virgil at the heart of it.

      Cheating Kunt is Messi voted for Mane after facing VVD.  He votes tactically.  VVD had the best season ever for a defender no attacker troubled him through out the entire season including the cheat Messi and Ronaldo.
