Like I said, the criteria of this trophy changes each year. I'm not saying he didn't deserve it, I'm merely saying Ronaldo can't do anything to win it no matter what he does. ROnaldo had a better year the other year but Messi got it because of Barcelona's accomplishments. While Ronaldo led Madrid to a la liga trophy and scored loads of goals but Messi wins because of 91 goals. It just bothers me that there really isn't any set in stone criteria and that they change because of Messi and Barca's accomplishments rather than someone actually deserving it.

That was probably Ronaldo's best bet at the ballon d'or.

Congrats to Messi for winning his 4th ballon d'or in a row. That quite amazing tbh. I think he deserved it this year, he scored 91 goals this year and broke Muller's record, that brilliant. Feel sad for Ronaldo though, it must suck for him to be playing in the same era as Messi.

As many have stated, the team of the year is a joke, Pique being there is ridiculous. He shouldn't be anywhere near there and Pirlo should have been there.

Sneijder should have won it in 2010, and Ronaldo did deserve it this year--I'll be honest. I was rather skeptical that they'd give it to Iniesta, so I'm fine with Messi winning it.

But I agree with Henry. Ronaldo did it when it counted this year.

Re: 2012-2013 Discussion Thread for La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, etc

The Ballon D'Or is a done by a vote from all the coaches, captains and a football journalist from every FIFA representative country, so it's essentially a popularity contest rather than an award based on merit. The FIFA Player of the Year used to be done by vote of from the coaches and captains of national teams, and the old Ballon D'Or was selected by a panel of journalists, the the FIFA Ballon D'Or is essentially a merger of both concepts.

So there really isn't any set criteria for the award aside from being good at football and being popular. The way I interpret the award is that it's basically whoever the best player in the World at the time gets the award. I actually remember I looked at all the voting from 2010, and it was interesting the Sneijder, who many thought actually performed the best in 2010, pretty much only got votes from Europe. It were as though his exploits in the UCL were only really noticed in Europe. Pretty much every African Country had Messi, Ronaldo and Eto'o as their votes too. So name value seemed to resonate much more than actual performance through the year.

The voters are kinda dumb to fair

Its easy to notice some bias. For example the arabs have only heard of Messi and Ronaldo, and voted accordingly

All Africans voted for Drogba and Yaya in this too

And the Thailand coach voted for Biscuits, for some reason

Hows the Fifa XI chosen?
