His goals even carried Portugal to the semi's of the Euro so it's not like he only did it in one competition.
Why should the team he was in have to do with anything? It's about the individual no? Just because Real Madrid was better in La Liga last season, along with much referee assistance, which won them win La Liga, doesn't make CRonaldo a more worthy winner.

His 'goals' didn't carry portugal to the semis. Portugal progressed in spite of CRonaldo flopping most of the games.

There are two decisive tap ins he scored, one against Czech Republic one in Clasico, that doesn't turn the Balon d'Or, even if you'd like it to Z Laughing

Messi, CR, Pirlo. Falcao, Ibra, Ozil, Van Persie, Xavi, Aguero and Benzema had a better 2012 as an individual.

Hell there's players like Silva who are not even nominated who had a better 2012.

Also BC he wasn't the best player in the final not even close and who gives a shit if the generation is not not awarded.

It's an individual award for the best individual of 2012 and Iniesta should not even be close to winning it.

:bow:

One of the reasons I joined this esteemed forum is because of posts like these made by the Great Leader. Well thought out but thetruth of the matter is, rarely have the balon d'or votes have not been based on emotion. My heart says Iniesta should win it but my head says messi.

Don't see why we have to belittle other players accomplishment to support our arguments. Messi wasn't only better than Ronaldo against Lerkusen and Santos and Ronaldo didn't only score tap ins.

Also Mole nearly every player rating after the match had Iniesta as their best player, and like I said he was chosen as the player of the tournament. We know that international football, in spite of only being only 10% of the amount of club games, matter for these sorts of awards a lot. Whether that's fair or not is another argument but that's pretty indisputable. IIRC if Messi wins this year he would be the first South American to do so in a Eurocup year.

It's an individual award for the best individual of 2012 and Iniesta should not even be close to winning it.

Granted last season Iniesta was inconsistent but he did have some great performances like at the Euros for example and some people have won the damn thing by just being good in those kind of tournaments like Ronaldo in WC 02 and Zidane in WC 98(even though he wasnt even the player of the tournament nor the best french) ) but how can you mention Xavi as having a better season? I love Xavi, but he was even more inconsisten than Iniesta and when he wasnt, he got injured not to mentiona that he had a Euro to forget until the final where he was MOTM(with Iniesta closesly behind him).

The reason why he geets booed and insulted every time he touches the ball is the same reason why Busquets got booed against Man utd here in sweden when Scholes almost broke him in two and that is because both of them has acted like a c#nts before.

Cristiano should win it.

@in 2002 Brazil hardly made it to the WC finals, then Ronaldo came, scored 8 goals, 2 in the final and they won. He was just too good in that tournament

@in 98 Zidane was also in the UCL final with Juve.

2012 IS the Messi's year! No one has ever done what he has done since last season [until now]. Who want to give a Ballon d'Or for Iniesta or C.Ronaldo, please give them next year. Else it'd be very ridiculous for the whole football world!

You really just get the same thing every damn time with these threads... Shame.

Just a few random points:

1. Xavi was clear MOM for me in the final, won the official award and was top on most ratings I saw.

2. I never understand when I see people using Euros as a reason why CR deserves it. His Euros were so overrated its not funny. He was garbage (at least nothing special and extremely underwhelming) first 2 games. Boss against the Dutch, who needed to win by a fair margin and couldn't defend to save their lives anyway. Scored a typical winner without doing much else in the quarters then did little against Spain.

Hardly 'carried the team on his back to the semis'... Do people forget the Portuguese wall of a defence and their workhorse midfield? They were the heroes... A collective triumph. He wasn't bad by any means, but not even close to meritting an argument for Ballon D'Or. I was in general disappointed with his Euros.

Hello Barcakizz. But over the course of the whole season Ronaldo was a level above both Xavi and Iniesta. I might not like his attitude but bias cannot block what he achieved.

Where did I say he wasn't? I completely agree with that assessment.

Simply pointing out that Ronaldo's Euros should not be used as an argument for him winning Ballon D'Or.

Why not? No body gave Portugal a chance when before the tournament started. Portugal reached the finals and Ronaldo was the spear head behind all that. Hell Portugal wouldn't have made the finals without him.

He had a good Euro, which in addition to his efforts with Real Madrid puts him on top imo.

For all your stats you avoided the most important one and the one that destroys your argument.

Messi was actually better against top opposition, Cronaldo unsurprisingly worse. The same applies pretty much in their careers, Cronaldo is a big game flop.

Santos a big game? You're full of it. Malaga? Porto? Are you kidding me? You're criteria for big game is hilarious.

Messi didn't score against Chelsea or Madrid in the biggest games of the season. He even missed a pen against Chelsea and was the reason behind Drogba's goal in Stamford Bridge. The only reason he scored against Milan was due to a pen.

Players scoring their own penalties 11-12 shows the difference of quality of players and teams in general

jiopsi wrote:Iniesta will win the Ballon D'Or this year - Page 2 Di-NRY9

- Higuain and Benzema were actually more effective than Cronaldo and were involved in 1.3x goals more than Cronaldo.
- Messi were carrying Barcelona, and were involved in 1.6x goals more than Xavi and Fabregas together, 1.48x more than Cronaldo.
- As a team Madrid were better, as a player Messi was far, far ahead of others. And Ballon d'Or is a invidual prize, not a team prize.

Again useless stat is useless. Anyone who watched Madrid would tell you that Ronaldo was the main guy behind most victories, especially the games where Madrid had to win. Whether Messi was carrying Barca or not (In my opinion it goes both ways, Barca were carrying Messi's stat padding). It's not Cristiano's fault if his team mates are better than Messi's.

Ronaldo has equal claim to the award. Besides Messi has already been rewarded for scoring the most goals. It's called the golden boot eco smile

Balon D'Or SHOULD go to Ronaldo, the best player on the best preforming team in Europe last season.

rofl

Ronaldo had 2 good games against Netherland(who managed to lose every game) and against Czech Republic, he had 2 absolutely awful, just awful games against Germany and especially Denmark and then against Spain he was at best average.

Dont forget that Ronaldo could have cost his team the knockout stage with his performance against Denmark, so no way was he the spear head behind Portugal reaching the semi-final.

That's not what every stat is telling, they are telling how much better Messi was during the whole La Liga. And who cares where the majority of his goals came from, it still was more goals and assists, more important goals and assists, which you can see the table below.

Importance of statistics: (without Messi's and Cronaldo's goals and assists)

1. Milan 14
2. Barcelona 10
3. Plzen 6
4. BATE 2

1. Real Madrid 16
2. Lyon 9
3. Ajax 8
4. Dinamo 0

Messi gave 6 points in 3 group games and would have lost 1st position. Would have lost against Milan.
Cronaldo gave 2 points in 1 group game. Would have lost against ZSKA.

Again this line of thought makes no sense. and half of Messi's CL goals came against Leverkusen. If that isn't stat padding I have no idea what is.
So now you are only concentrating goals, a goals against Leverkusen? So what, they helped Barca to win Leverkusen. And even without Leverkusen, Messi still was involved directly to more goals than Cronaldo. lol

Messi was actually better against top opposition, Cronaldo unsurprisingly worse. The same applies pretty much in their careers, Cronaldo is a big game flop.

Santos a big game? You're full of it. Malaga? Porto? Are you kidding me? You're criteria for big game is hilarious.

Messi didn't score against Chelsea or Madrid in the biggest games of the season. He even missed a pen against Chelsea and was the reason behind Drogba's goal in Stamford Bridge. The only reason he scored against Milan was due to a pen.
So those games are the only big games in season, the only games which matters? lol And Messi was better actually in last classico, both were involved in one goal, but Messi also gave the best opportunity of the game to score for Xavi.

Players scoring their own penalties 11-12 shows the difference of quality of players and teams in general

- Higuain and Benzema were actually more effective than Cronaldo and were involved in 1.3x goals more than Cronaldo.
- Messi were carrying Barcelona, and were involved in 1.6x goals more than Xavi and Fabregas together, 1.48x more than Cronaldo.
- As a team Madrid were better, as a player Messi was far, far ahead of others. And Ballon d'Or is a invidual prize, not a team prize.

Again useless stat is useless. Anyone who watched Madrid would tell you that Ronaldo was the main guy behind most victories, especially the games where Madrid had to win. Whether Messi was carrying Barca or not (In my opinion it goes both ways, Barca were carrying Messi's stat padding). It's not Cristiano's fault if his team mates are better than Messi's.
No, but it speaks volumes about Messi's individual dominance, he carried the team like no other has ever done. In the end it wasn't enough, but football is a team sport and you can't win it all by yourself.

Every which way you look, you see Messi's superioirity.

Only from your point of view Laughing

Ronaldo has equal claim to the award. Besides Messi has already been rewarded for scoring the most goals. It's called the golden boot eco smile

Balon D'Or SHOULD go to Ronaldo, the best player on the best preforming team in Europe last season.
Cronaldo hasn't got equal claim on the award, at all. It's the best individual performance of the year award, not a one of the best players in random league winning team award.

The OPTA-statistics are telling the exact same thing, Messi difference to Cronaldo is bigger than the difference between Cronaldo and the next 21 players. Performance wise.
