This is the new Futébol thread, let's discuss the recent happenings in the world of Football (Soccer).
All SPPF rules apply. (duh).
Also please be respectful of the clubs other people support, except for Liverpool. (lol jk)
Messi won his fifth Ballon d'or, do you guys and gals think that there is anyone currently playing that will ever surpass the same individual success at club level that Messi has had? I personally think Neymar has a good chance of emulating or even surpassing Messi's club success. I also think that Neymar should have won his first Ballon d'or, he played exceptionally well last season and carried much of the burden this season for Barcelona while Messi was injured. What do you guys think, should Messi have won it?
Also what did you guys think about the team of the year? Do you agree with it? Is there anyone who should have made the cut over someone else? I personally think Rakitic should have been included over Modric because he is, was, and still is the better player. Rakitic is criminally underrated. He was one of Barcelona's best last season and he is one of their best this season. But I understand he is overshadowed by Messi, Suarez, Neymar, and even Iniesta. Of course there are other players I think that didn't deserve to be in the team of the year but this post has already gotten a bit lengthy and I would like to see what others think.
