    IMO it’s not what it use to be. It should be based on individual stats and grizzy should not be in top 3

    Sure trophies matter, but at the end of the day its an individual award and individual performance should play a big role

    Slightly offtopic, but speaking of ballon d'or candidates, who remembers when lloris and neuer were the best young keepers in fifa 12 and lloris actually had a higher potential :lol:

    He had an embarrassing world cup, failed to deliver when it mattered most in the Champions League.

    He had an embarrassing world cup, failed to deliver when it mattered most in the Champions League.

    So you are implying that all those games before he could just not live up to his standards. And just score a double in the quarter finals. Then he would be your top 3?

    He actually had a great cl run. Scoring most for his team. Just the team didnt live up to their scoring standards for the whole campaign.
    And thats just the cl. He was by far the best in the league. + he also needed to carry that nation to the world cup as they almost stayed home. Also that team barerly scored besides him.

    Anyway the ballon dor has been a joke for years.

    I'm not even going to bother arguing with you, Messi fanboys are delusional.

    But you know not top 3. Lol Ballon d’or has become just marketing.

    This. Messi didnt win much the past year, or do well in the world cup, but if its the best individual player award, I don't see why him somehow topping every single attacking category results in him not being in the top 3, much less winning it. I don't know the facts but I doubt that this combination of stats has been done before. Curious to hear counterarguments, @Retro_G

    It doesn’t matter who wins, Messi had better numbers than all 3 and its an individual award. Any credibility of the award—the little it had left—is out of the window.

    Varane should have a shot. He's Ben unbelievable this year. Was important in Real's UCL winning side and France's WC winning wide.
