Checking through the list, one thing that is extremely weird is,

how Neymar got votes from places like the Cayman Islands, Mozambique and Comoro. I'm safe to expect that more than half of the countries that voted for him, probably don't even have the Brazilian Serie A on their tvs, let alone Libertadores or their regional territory leagues.

Then you'd be surprised.Hell,in Brazil they broadcast Portuguese liga games so its not far fetched that a Portuguese speaking country(Mozambique)is capable of getting Brazilian games over there.

They may have seen Neymar at the Olympics where he was GOATing it up. He also has some pretty good compilations on youtube

That was the story.
Still is the story. He was a flat track bully, now he isn't. I'm not suddenly hopping on his bandwagon because I feel like it, I'm just giving him credit where it's due. He made a massive breakthrough over the past year and has emerged as a far better player.

It doesn't change the past though. 2009-11 he's behind Messi, Xavi and Iniesta and by a comfortable distance.

The "team of the year" is just pathetic. Like people said here, 100% popularity contest based on names and clubs alone. I usually don't take this too seriously but seeing Pique there instead of Kompany is disgraceful. Also don't get how Xavi was better than Pirlo this year. I guess that you need to take it for the joke that it is until they change the voting system.

As for Messi, Ronaldo won the league with a record breaking season for Real Madrid and led Portugal to a successful Euro. Messi scored a lot but didn't win any significant thing this year, how is he winning the award? Media hype BS.

Yeah last time I checked it wasn't called the Fifa World Goalscorer of the Year.

Last time I checked it wasn't the Best Player from the Most Successful Team award either.

Michael Owen will agree with you on that.
