Though could you imagine the reaction of someone like Ronaldo if you told him he won the reward because they wanted to give someone else a chance at winning it instead of Messi, I would hope it may put a dent in his ego!Yeah i hear ya. People all over the world jizz their pants whenever Messi is playing. True he's good, but the hype around Messi is a bit... Too much imo. He deserves the award for best football player of the year, but next year let's give someone else a chance.
Yeah, and it's not like Barcelona will forever be like this. I give them 2-3 more years and then they'll be normal like they we're before.
Messi is not that much without Xavi, or was it Iniesta..I always mix those 2 up.
I'm not denying his greatness, but the team matters a lot. Maradonna was and is the only one who is a one man team.
Nigel Adkins sacked! What on earth? That makes even less sense than Chelsea's dismissal of Di Matteo! What a ruthless business football can be.
Also sky sources claim Walcott agreed to a new deal at Arsenal, bout time though I think he's still not going to be the big player Arsenal need
Call me an idiot but who's Nigel Adkins?
^He's the Southampton Manager, then he got fired.
As to what once, it now is. For this my retirement tour, let us commence, forevermore, forevermore.
With managers of teams like that, he'll probably go to something like Norwich.
I dunno how bad that guy was doing as a manager, but clubs seem to fire their managers awfully fast these days. Like Di Matteo of Chelsea. He won the Champions League last season and was fired because of dissapointing results in the next run. Sure they can't prolong their title but they can still try to do well in the cup matches and competition?
Just a question for all of you: Which clubs do you think will win the leagues? My guesses are Manchester Utd in England, Barcelona in Spain, Bayern in Germany, Juventus in Italy, and PSV in Holland. Most leagues aren't as exciting as last year, for example in Spain and Germany where Barca and Bayern are comfortably in the lead position. Same goes (kinda) for the Premier League. The Dutch and French leagues are pretty close still, though. So who do you think will win?
