    Award is a joke and has been for some years now. There is no rational explanation for Lewa not winning it and anyone who wants to say it’s because of the Copa America is crazy
  • Award is a joke because Ronaldo didn’t win it.

    🐐 no more doubting him please!!

    He was always going to win after Argentina won the Copa. They gave Modric one for his World Cup performances, Ronaldo got one when Portugal won the Euro's etc.

    This is the first time Messi has won it and I've thought "Nah, not this year". There have been at least 2 years where he hasn't won it and he should have.

    Surely by this thought process Jorginho should have won then?

    Messi had 58 goals and assists over 56 matches, plus won the Copa America.

    It's hardly like he stole it from Lewandoski.

    I’m just glad the whole thing is over, the amount of crap I see about it on football pages from grown men crying about their favourite footballer is genuinely pathetic.
    I don’t understand these people who are so obsessed with a person rather than a team, proper weird imo.

    Both players had exceptional seasons, top scorers in their leagues, it really depends on what trophy you value more, Bundesliga or Copa imo and it looks like more people like the Copa.

    Messi is used to get undeserved awards. It happed before. Lewa should have won it! Messi is one of the best ever but not this year!

    Not really, it did manage to get him 3rd though. Not bad for someone that can only pass the ball sideways or backwards.

    Whole award is just a popularity contest, no point taking it seriously.

    Kjaer gets in the top 20 because he saved Eriksen's life with CPR

    Jorginho gets in ahead of Salah and other better performing players because he won the Euro's and CL.... he's not even Chelsea's best midfielder

    Ignore the awards for your own sanity.

    Dude. It is not that simple and straight forward as you think .

    BALLON D’OR doesnt have clear criteria of selecting the best Player. It is a collective voting system and relatively subjective and dependent on those voters.

    The most important criteria for BALLON D’OR has been (not written / but typically explained) > if the Candidate won any major Trophy / Competitions along with exceptional Statistics (goals/assists) during the year.

    So the Facts are simple why its Messi and not Lewa or Jorginho:

    1) Messi won Copa America (which is more prestigious than Europe Cup, but less than World's Cup) + had outstanding stats
    2) Jorginho won Europe Cup and Champions League but didnt have outstanding stats (goals/assists)
    3) Lewa had great year with over 60 goals (which is crazy good) , but didnt won ANY big trophies last year .

    I know and hear you , that it all sounds UNFAIR to Lewa... But that's the way BALLON D’OR system is working until now.

    Here is an article at FourFourTwo > https://www.fourfourtwo.com/features/why-did-lionel-messi-win-the-ballon-dor-the-psg-stars-2021-analysed

    PS> However Lewa should have got his BALLON D’OR last year . CLEARLY! But was robbed by the bureaucrats.

    It's alright, Bundesliga is not a good leauge it is easy to score there for lewa playing in the best team. Messi was great in a better leauge, won an international title as one of the best players on the team. Both didn't play well or came far in champions leauge knockout games. Head to head race, messi won because of Copa.

    To be fair Kjaer has been absolutely outstanding from he signed for Milan. Easily one of the best CB's in Europe at the minute.
