goal - World football's governing body has announced the 23-men shortlist for the prestigious individual award, with the winner to be announced on January 12
didnt know what other tags to put. players names or countries? just left it as industry and international for simplicity. OT: i think everyone is unanimous that Cristiano Ronaldo should win it this year. well except for platini. he cant stand Ronaldo equaling him on 3 Ballon D'ors.
I wouldn't be surprised if they gave it to Neuer.
if Neuer don't get the trophy, just change the name to Striker d'Or or Goal d'Or
neuer is a good player and achieved a lot with bayern and germany but has he broken any sort of german/european records along the way in 2014? Highest number of clean sheets by a goalkeeper in a domestic league season? Highest number of clean sheets by a goalkeeper in champions league season? Highest number of saved penalties in a season? just a few i could think of off the top of my head. if oliver khan couldnt win a ballon d'or i dont see how neuer can. unless they plan to give one to oliver kahn in the same ceremony. i suppose if they could give pele a ballon d'or after all these years, nothing is impossible.
Arjen Robben deserves this. He ALWAYS gets snubbed. Dude were the best player at the world cup, buuuuuuut, then they went and gave the award to Messi... Dafuq
Well to be fair Ronaldo is outperforming everyone.
Ronaldo and Messi don't deserve it this year
CR7 has more goals than a lot of teams. He is unstoppable. This galardon has his name all over.
