The most tediously dull drawn out process, and why are there so many of these bollocky awards?

They should just have this award and that's it. I don't see the point of having that Fifa award as well. The same player usually wins both anyway.

Cam wild: Ronaldo shouldn't be anywhere near the top 3 in the Ballon d'Or this year. 5th top scorer in Serie A, 6th top assists, couldn't get past the quarter-finals of Champions League. If he gets near the top three it's for no other reason than his name.

@Teso dos Bichos your thoughts, good be right      :D    9_9

If he remains fit for a season he could be top three one day

Fuck me, they release the nominees in batches? How tedious and unnecessary. Does anyone actually give a flying one about this sort of thing? Didn’t we have these awards last month, anyway?

Agreed on Ronaldo, think he is one of the best to play the game. However shouldn't be anywhere near the top three spots for last seasons efforts.

Marcelo HAS to end up winning one for god's sake!

He's managed to make that FIFA XI for god knows how long (even this year, while injured much of the season and Real capitulating on all fronts) while being totally mediocre.

I vote for MARCELO... Let's start the campaign rolling!

Messi should walk it if we are being honest.

Van Dijk is class and you don't get many defenders like him in this day and age but no defender should be winning this when an attacking player plays to the level that Messi has over the year.

He failed once again on the biggest stage against a team that RM man handled the year before, with EASE. No way he deserves it

Vidal was the only player that really tried at Anfield... no way Ronaldo would let such lead at home go to waste without putting up a decent fight. Messi is a victim of his own success and he had FAILED the last few years in the CL.

Why do we put emphasis on the attacker every single year though? When he’s played to a defensive level like he has and assisted to its highest points tally ever (only to be beaten by billion dollar City) and a Champions League?

Since he didn't get nominated, I think whoevers in charge of this award should pay proper respects to him and rename the award for a true legend of the game.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the new and improved Ballon d'Or... the Ballon d'Origi

Not surprising is it? I think this was called when that last award was given out, can't remember its name now.

So if he is the best player in the world we should give it to him every season regardless if other players had better seasons?

1. Highest goal scorer in Europe

2. Highest chance creator in Europe. Matter of fact he is miles away from 2nd place in chance creation. 

3. Most hattrics. 

4. Most FK’s 

Erm, explain again how ‘no way in fucking hell’ he deserves it? xD
