The FifPro World 11 contenders list, where we feature heavily. Im surprised at the midfield selections here - in particular Pogba is on it - when rightly Fabinho should be in there.
Casemiro, Kante, Kroos, Modric, Vidal...did nothing this year as well. They're there only by reputation.

I feel like Fabinho has fallen into the hole Bobby just climbed out of - being massively underrated outside LFC for the work he does.

Marcelo in the best 11 is the shock of the night for me by a country mile. I want an explanation. Not quite as shocking as Luiz in 2014, but still.

So who gives a f*ck about this joke of an award.
best part of the awards was mourinho just walking off when they were trying to use him to fill in the time gaps :))

Van Djik should have won FIFA player of the year. Giving it to Messi was a token gesture. Even the original Brazilian Ronaldo said it should go to Virgil.

What a bloody farce!:mad:

The BBC were trying to justify it on the basis of all his goals and assists. Didn’t mention how many tackles, blocks, interceptions, clearances, clean sheets he'd got though.

Really annoys me when those voting for the best player award fail to factor in all aspects of the game. Football's not just about attacking.

He won it because he's still traumatised from our comeback,i don't think the award will do much to change that fortunately.

Virgil won the UEFA player of the year, this one was the FIFA player of the year, the Ballon d'or is later on this year, ....I think?

I believe ballon d'Or is the biggest footie award for a player???

Correct me if I am wrong, anyone.

Eta: balloon d'or :LOL: :LOL:
