@Posford Bayern have been mint yeah but it's about the best individual player, not the which teams won the most trophies, and IMO as individuals Ronaldo and messi have been the two best

@Rafael95 That's what I was saying. Messi will win it despite not doing anything that spectacular this year. It was really sad for me that year too cos I really like the way Sneijder plays, one of my favourite players

@Posford Sneijder won the treble and didn't get the Ballon d'Or so anything is possible

Considering what happened last year, the nod has to go to one of the players in that amazing Treble winning Bayern side. For me it's a straight shootout between Robben and Ribery (Robbery) as they were both highly influential in the champions league winning campaign yet I'm not sure who I'd say was better. Regardless, I reckon FIFA will just pick their golden boy Messi again cos that's the fickle way in which they work
