I really don't get why someone said Ronaldo should win it . He had a great season and being top 3 would be well deserved but it's between Ribéry and Messi.
But imo Ribéry's situation is like Sneijder 2010. Now people who vote for the ballon d'or vote as they want , hence a lot of players would get considerable votes.

I don't quite understand why Messi should win this season, either.

The shortlist is hard to make, but I think the Top 3 should be Ribery, Messi, and Schweinsteiger. Robben should also put up a fight to be in the top 3 and would also be ahead of Ronaldo.
It would be a shame if Robben made the top 3, he didn't play a good portion of the season. However, the shortlist and top three will not matter as once again Messi will win the award.

Don't compare a that Napoli to this Barcelona.

It's a terrible comparison.

Only time that logic would apply is if Messi moves to another team while he is still relevant and pulls off what he does now at Barca.

Carried Barcelona to league, Maradona Napoli style. Scored 21 league games straight, expressing never seen consistency and efficiency. Showed unlimited individualism when he came and lifted Barcelona to CL-semis, still being unfit. All these are beyond anything what Cronaldo, or Ribery did to showcase their craft.

Yes, but he's far ahead in in terms of Speed, Strength, Stamina and is quite an Iron Man as he hardly injures himself not to mention the he can also Dribble, Cross, FK & PK, Heading, and a Long Shot combine that with Tenacity. CR's definetely the more complete player. But of course, it isn't enough.

The reason I put Ribery ahead of Ronnie or Messi his season is simply because he's lead (has been leading for some time now along with Robben) Bayern to the final stages of important competitions. It was high time he finally got his gold. Same reason why I put Iniesta & Xavi as deserved Ballon' D'Or Winners.

There attributes have nothing to do with FOOTBALL Skills [Finishing, Passing, Creating, Dribbling, these are the main qualities for a forward].
Speed (last time I checked Messi was 6th in terms most fast football players, Cristiano only 2Km faster..)
Strength and Stamina? unlike Cristiano who falls after every contact, Messi stays on his feet which help dribbler 3+ players!

Complete player?
who carries if he finishes by head, left or right foot. What matters is number of goals and his conversion.

Don't talk about comparing a Napoli that without a doubt did not have a squad as complete as this current Barcelona and their only standout was Maradona that helped lift that team.

You're clueless in comparing Maradona and his Napoli and Messi and his Barcelona.

Ronaldo being physically more complete than Messi doesn't make him overall more complete. Messi is more complete technically. Also I think technical skills are more valuable on the big stage. Technical skills can impact the match more.

When you compare two players, you compare their FOOTBALL skills. We're playing football, its not a 100m race

Even interms of Stamina and strenght, Messi is still ahead....

Although I don't agree, lets say CR is better physically. How does this help him in a football match?
Speed, Stamina and Strength are attributes that should help you to finish better [power] and dribble better [stay on his feet] etc...

As we know, Messi is a better finisher and better dribbler...

Again, why are assuming that Critisano is better physically. Why does he fall down after every contact, while Messi can stay on his feet?

did you read the whole post? :-)
I said when you compare two players in terms of finishing, number of goals and conversion rate what matters. I'am not talking the ballon d'or.

Infact, in a previous post I mentioned that its not about who scores more. Its overall individual performance, influence on the team and individual/team achievements!

It all depends on how good the player is at what he does. Messi & Ronaldo are both the best at what they do and that's why in La Liga they're both more or less unstoppble. Ribery isn't as Physical nor Technical as Ronnie or Messi but I see a much better Leader than either of them. And that leadership has proven vital for Bayern's recent succeses. Finally, now we see Ribery contending the Ballon D'Or, which I believe should be his this season.

Oops. Looks what happens when I'm installing a new kernel, watch the Friday BL match and look at the chat, too. My apologies ^^

But still I'd like to see at least Manuel Neuer and Roman Weidenfeller in the Ballon d'Or shortlist ^^
