De Gea is the best keeper in the world, no one comes close, any award ceremony that says otherwise is balaks.

Terrible awards show. Unnecessarily long, shit jokes and cringy as hell.


Though the highlight was definitely learning that Josephine Skriver is a United fan :drool:

Terrible. Nominations, meh. Winners, meh. Awards itself, meh.
Exactly what you'd expect from FIFA and polls. 80% of everything was based on the world cup and the others, hype popularity and bias. Terrible.

How in gods name did Courtois get GK of the year? Regardless of the clear as fecking day point he didn't even make the World Pro XI :lol:.

Chelsea finished 5th last year. He was far from his best. Grant it he had a fantastic World Cup but so did Pickford.

How did that Salah goal win the Puskas award?! It is a good goal, for sure, but there is nothing spectacular about it. It is probably the least special goal on the shortlist.

Does anyone know how this is selected? It seems to be a bit of a consolation prize, since Salah did not win the Ballon d'Or.

It's an online vote. So of course the Egyptians rallied together and voted for him.

So Salah is nominated for the best player award and finishes 3rd but doesn't get into the team of the year.
De Gea is in the best team but isn't the best goalkeeper. What a joke.
And you gotta laugh at Dani Alves being chosen. :lol:

Reading last few replies in this thread surely cracking me up.
So Salah on 3 best player shortlist but not in best XI and De Gea in best XI but not nominated at all in best GK. :lol:

This is a joke. BBC sport did a pretty good write up of why it was a joke - for all of the reasons people have stated above.

Can anyone confirm this is NOT the ballon d’or, right??
