    Where's Messi and Ronaldo? Off that list I'd give it to De Bruyne.


    ETA: Just read 15 more names are to be released.

    Ronaldo shouldn’t win it.

    Where is Sinclair, he should win it every year.

    Probably still wouldn't get an England cap

    He dragged Real to a CL and La liga title with his goals, more than deserves it..

    1. Kieran Tierney
    2. Lionel Messi
    3. Cristiano Ronaldo

    CR7 will win it this year, because he's had better team success, even though Messi has played better.

    Thats what top goalscorer awards are for though, best player should really go to the best performer which is easily Messi, he's been on fire all year.

    Even in the years where Messi has won fewer trophies than Ronaldo, and scored fewer goals, I never really got the feeling that Ronaldo had blown Messi out of the water to win the Ballon d'Or.

    In fact, I'm not even sure Ronaldo has fully deserved some of the Ballon d'Ors he's won.

    Messi has been the better performer, but to be fair Ronaldo scored 5 goals in 2 games v Bayern Munich in the CL quarters. Scored a hat-trick against Atletico in the semi final and then a brace against Juventus in the final.

    It's nigh impossible to overlook that contribution.

    Messi may of been the more consistent performer in games of little worth, but did his performances deliver trophy's?

    As I've said, Ronaldo near singlehandedly delivered Real a CL, with his contribution in the latter stages..
