It has been officially announced that Manchester United and Portugal winger, Cristiano Ronaldo, is the new winner of the Ballon D’ or (world player of the year). This is not surprising considering Ronaldo had 42 goals in his 49 appearances for Manchester United, eight goals in the euro 08 qualifying and one in the euro 08 tournament after qualifying. He had a terrific season.

Lionel Messi won second place and Fernando Torres won a close third.

I personally feel Torres’ results and statistics are much better than Messi’s, but Messi might have more individual skill

what is your oppinnion?


Ballon D’Or: World Player of the Year

November 20, 2008

Who should win the ballon d’ or? There are two candidates which seem to be the front runners (Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo). Both players are young and on popular teams (Lio Messi-FC Barca, Cristiano Ronaldo-Man u) and there is a lot of commotion over who will win the ballon d’or.

In a recent poll it was an even split over who is the best player in the world.

I personnally feel that it would be stupi not to givethe awar to Cristiano Ronaldo. Lio Messi, last season, had made 40 apearances and had 16 goals total. In the Spanish Primera Division he made 28 appearances with only 10 goals.

Cristiano Ronaldo had made 49 appearnces and 42 goals total last season, making in that 34 league apearances and 31 league goals. thoes statistcs are incredible, especially for a winger. Nothing to do with thoes goals he displayed amzing ball control, creativity, vision, power, speed and he showed, also, that he was incredibly dangerous in the air. He took beautioful freekicks and also was a big help to his portugal side in the euro tournament (especially in qualifying).

However this is all just my oppinion, whats yours?
