    I would have put Casemiro instead of Iniesta but I'm fine with the rest of the choices.

    So they managed to end up with the same team as last year minus pique and suarez. Hardly worth the breakaway effort

    It's quite amusing that Celtic get a trophy for the best fans in the world the same day they get fined for a fan trying to kick Mbappe:lol:

    Yes, fined £8900.

    I'm honestly astonished how bad this event is, I mean it's FIFA but so many akward cringe moments, unbelievable.

    Your argument is totally flawed. Ronaldo got injured in the final of the Euro so didn’t influence the win in the final, Messi has been to 4 finals with Argentina. So Ronaldo winning with Portugal while not featuring in the final is the same as Messi getting to 4 finals and not winning.

    Also Ronaldo has won the CL heaps of times? So has Messi. They have both won 4.

    Messi has only ever done well playing in Spain? Messi is Argentina’s all time top scorer and has scored 17 goals and has 7 assists against United, Arsenal, Chelsea and City in 24 games. Ronaldo has scored 14 and got 6 assists in 46 games against the same teams.

    But yeah Messi has only performed in Spain and hasn’t done good in two leagues. Messi would tear the PL apart now and even more so in his prime.

    Dumb question probably but is this where they choose the Player of the Year? Isn't that done in January?

    Ronaldo has had better seasons, sure, but I believe OP was saying if awards went to purely who is the best player overall then it's Messi. It isn't idiotic to say that.

    People are entitled to their opinions but for me if anything is idiotic is to have the opinion that there's been a better footballer over the last decade than him.

    The whole "Messi's only ever done it with Barca" is a tired and irrelevant argument.

    Let's not get into that again, there are at least 4-5 years in the last 10 where Messi was a distant 2nd to Ronaldo and sometimes not even deserving of 2nd place.

    But if you really want to, go dig up the Messi v Ronaldo thread.

    4 finals, granted there's the WC final that Argentina defended their way into, but to even suggest that Copa Finals and even more laughably Olympics finals are on par with the Euro? :lol:

    If awards just got given to the de facto best player it would be boring and no one would have anything to play for. Ronaldo deserves every award he has won.
