Messi also had 4 MOTM performances, more than any other player. Another reason why they probably gave it to him

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Messi should of won the award. I'm just saying it's not a some giant disgrace if you look at the stats I posted. If they are going by numbers other than JUST goals scored (which is what the golden shoe is for) then I can see why they gave it to him.

David Luiz being named into the team of the tournament is a bigger joke. Dudes a defender, and is on the team that got scored on the most. His goals shouldn't of put him ahead of some of the other defenders that had better over all games like Blind, Vlaar or what not.

It's an absolute joke and disgrace that Messi wins that award. Of course the usual Messi semen swallowers like mole are in here defending it as per usual.

I find the worst part is that Messi didn't care.

Give it to James and he'd be over the moon to win it.

Messi past that trophy off like he didn't want it.

The dude had just lost a WC final. It's an understandable reaction.

Who said he's been named? The official team hasn't been announced. That was just from some agency.

About Messi winning the golden ball I feel he didn't really deserve it but of course he was much better than some people want to give him credit for. Neuer would have been a worthy winner and it was so disgraceful not to have him in the shortlist. James also may have been a worthy winner.

His entire life might be judged by that one game that he lost. Just let that sink in for a second how much pressure has probably been put on him since he started kicking a ball that this moment would come.

How did you expect him to react after the match? He's probably crying his ass off right now in some locker room.

He didn't bother to hold it aloft or make any indication that he was atleast happy to have won it.

Imagine the reaction if he was seen to be happy after losing a final... that's the kind of thing CR7 gets critisized for. Not sure what it so upsetting about this. The guy is probably heart broken.

Yeah that was a lose lose situation for messi. If he looked anything but miserable he'd get blamed for not caring about losing. Looking disappointed was probably the wisest choice, probably was distraught anyway

Mascherano, Robben, Muller, Neuer, all better options imo. Rodriguez too, I'd argue.

Messi was good though

Looked very lacklustre the passed couple of games. If Messi was so sad that he didn't win the world cup then perhaps he should've tried running more.

Toni Kroos deserves it more, mainly because he did something very important during the WC. He signed for Real Madrid.

(Mega facepalm if I jinx this and he doesn't sign for Real Madrid)

How in hell does Messi deserve it? By being invisible the entire game, jogging never running, not making an impact in the semi or final?

Such a jokw

Who cares about facts? Müller scored a goal in a 7:1 win. It was his only goal in a knock out game but heeeeey. Robben didn't do shit in a knock out game apart from getting one penalty for his team against Mexiko...... give him the golden ball already! Rodriguez lost every chance of winning the title when he couldn't turn the game against Brazil. Unfair? Probably. But at the end of the day that's just how it works.

It was a world cup without a player performing really special.

Man of the match awards, of course.
Did we really see a jaw dropping performance of Messi even worth talking about? No, we didn't.

All we remember is Messi bailing out a poor Argentina in a shitty group in the dying moments of a game where he had no impact for almost 90 minutes.

Lol @ those saying missi deserves the award,even more rediculous are people suggesting james could have been anywhere close to the award. Yes messi was very good this world cup but not clutch..and as for james,do u think he was given dsame pressure or marking like neymar,messi or robben? Imo,neuer or muller deserves this.

I agree with the marking part. James had more freedom than the likes of Nerman, Messi and Robben.

I don't think Messi should have got it personally, but the idea that he was shit and shouldn't be in the running is way too far fetched

Those that voted were not gonna pick a player whose team got knocked out in the quarter finals so James, unfortunately, would have not gotten pick. Was there an actual time that even happened?!. Anyway, very much disagree with Messi receiving the Golden Ball but what is done is very much done.

Still feel genuinely bad for the little man though. Totally understand his nonchalant emotion when receiving a trophy that, in all honesty, means nothing at this point.
