If Ballon d'Or is based on winning UCL and trophy at national level, then Pulisic should definitely be a contender.

One big reason why ballon is the biggest fraud of sport. Ballon d'or is not for defenders and goal keepers. Ballon d'or should be rename as golden boot award for attacking players.

The ballon is the biggest fraud of sport history. If its consistently base on how many goals (like in Messi or CR7 case), then Thierry Henry was robbed in broad daylight.

Messi has not won laliga best player and not even Barca best player this season and they expect him to win Ballon dor. He got carried by Di Maria. He was worst in the final when it mattered the most. Lewandowski deserved it the most.

The last South American team to win the world cup is Brazil in 2002. Quality in SA has been knowing a setback. Romario, Ronaldo, Rivaldo, Ronaldhino of Brazil were a class apart. Thus, Lewanoski deserves the golden ball in 2020-21 as football quality is currently of higher quality in Europe if we are taking it from a nation perspective. See the 2021 Soccer European cup of nations.

The way people are arguing here about Messi makes me confirm that after Messi's retirement, he will still be given Ballon 'D Or every year.... People need to accept the fact that Messi's and Ronaldo's eras are over, unless people are obsessed with these world class players...

If Jorghino win Supercup and Club World Cup it's done.... 4 highest trophies in 6-9 months.......If Messi won all these it would not be a discussion, but because it's not Messi, we bring biased ideas to force Messi's Ballon 'D or.....

The problem with Messi is that He has set the bar of standard so high that If Messi doesn't perform even with a hamstring injury it's considered very low Keeping in mind that he is also a human He also feels pain Vamosss leo He will win the 7th There is no doubt 😍 And we also saw in recent days Ramos left real madrid for asking to take a 10% paycut Where as Messi gave up half of his salary for his club THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CAPTAIN AND LEADER

Messi wins copa america and everyone thinks Jorginho is on the same level for playing ok with Italy. The only other player in the convo is Robert. He was the best individual all season long and Messi had a decent season with a magical summer. There’s no one else to talk about. I would choose Messi simply because of how good he was in a major tournament

I think No one this year is a clear winner, some have trophies some have great individual performances , Some have both , So The votes will get divided between Lewandowski, Jorginho and kante, That will help messi ,Also has the advantage of his absolutely amazing career And many gernalist are his fans also, I personally think messi deserves it , but Jorginho with Two biggest trophies this year, Lewy with outstanding goals per game ratio + Bundesliga , Kante's exceptional performance in UCL and ucl trophy And messi not winning the league . Are going to be big factors this year.

Suddenly Copa America becomes important for the Ballon d'Or. If Messi wins only la Copa del Rey, they'll make it a major trophy. This is a joke. Individually he's miles behind Lewandowsky for example.

The BO is not for the best but the one who performed the best (not just stats but visually too how impactful u were) if it was for the best Messi would have a lot at least 8. They didn't do it properly in 2013 and 2018 it should be Ribéry and probably Mbappé.

i Pessi in 2020/21: 0 goals and assists against Real Madrid. 0 goals and assists against athletico Madrid. only 1 goal and 0 assist after playing 3 matches against sevilla. Ghost in 2 matches vs Real. Ghost in 2 games vs Athletico. Ghost in 2 games vs sevilla. Ghost in 3-2 against athletic bilbao in the final. Ghost in 4-1 against psg in the 1st leg. Ghost in 3-0 against juventus. Ghost against Brazil (Carried buy Di maria) Ghost against Bulgaria. Complete Ghost in big games. Scored goals against bottom teams in laliga (Only 1 goal and 0 assist against top 4 teams of laliga after playing 7 matches.) 0 MOTM awards against big teams all MOTM awards against vegetable growing farmers. Scored most of the goals and gave assists against 81th rank Bolivia and 57th rank Equador. Once again disappeared in big games specially in the final. Scored against vegetable growing farmers But according to pepsi fan girls Pessi deserves the ballon dor 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂. Pepsi bottler fan girls are so delusional 😂😂😂😂

A CR7 fan here... But there's no point discussing who is gonna get the ballondor... Give it to MESSI already... Lewandowski was fabulous throughout the year but Copa is a greater achievement then Bundesliga anyday... Moreover messi has been individually brilliant with 25odd motm performance out of some 38-39 games... He deserves it.

Get over your biases!! Lmao 🤣🤣!! Sorry to say.. Not a very great analysis!!.. Even normal people with basic footballing knowledge will tell who the clear cut winner is for this year!! Not a rocket science!! Everyone knows how beautifully Messi led his team to glory after 28 years against all odds...not expected such biased, beating around the bush opinion from such elite panelists!!

Give it to lewa for 2020 then do the 2021 and give it to Messi I think everyone knows he’s a massive favourite. Jorginho won the euros and cl yes but Messi won the one trophy that was missing from his illustrious career he also starred for Argentina at copa was the standout player and he had a great individual season at Barca despite the calibre of players Barca had last season

But this time u guys want Lewandowski who won only the league and golden shoe to win the ballon dor while Messi won something great with his national team. But my man messi doesn't need to prove to u guys. He will win his 7th ballon dor

Remove dribbling value from the rankings: use the EXACT SAME algorithm MINUS the dribbling part. I'd LOVE to see HOW DIFFERENT the rankings would become by doing this because i firmly believe they are placing WAY TOO MUCH IMPORTANCE in dribbling when compared to the rest of the stats. There are FOUR main categories on the pitch: goal keepers, defenders, midfielders and strikers. Give a Ballon d'Or for EACH category: a smaller one if need be (cost issues).
