    Deserving or not?
    To me, I think the award should be called Jugador del año.

    Greatest player to ever touch a soccerball imo. Long time soccer fan and I love to watch him play. Someone yanks on his shirt in the penalty box he'll rip it out of their hand and put the ball in the back of the net. Not one of the stereotypical flopping pussies that ruin the sport I love. Very deserving.

    4 years in a row? is it only goals that defines a player? when will a defender, midfielder or keeper get an award? when will they turn their attention to other leagues that have players who PERFORM THEIR ROLE perfectly?
    just because he takes advantage of the ball and goes on himself to score goals doesn't make him the BEST player always
    he's a great player in his own right but not deserving a reward for 4 years when u have others who are not being recognized. dont ask me who.

    Soccer is about making goals, ofcourse the goalmakers are going to get the all the cred. Messi seems to be a really great player.
