The top 3 will be between Cristiano, Mbappé and Modric.
2018-07-11 23:17
haha nope ronaldo messi modric
2018-07-11 23:18
this year no CR no MESSI
2018-07-12 10:47
lol cr7 griezmann mbappe
2018-07-14 00:36
maybe varane tho
2018-07-14 00:36
hahahah griezmann useless, only scores penalties for france or open goals.
2018-07-14 14:54
Its not like he is the best defending forward in the world or anything
2018-07-14 17:08

If cr7 wins this ballon d'or it will be the most unfair one alongside 2010's one
2018-07-11 23:44
I think you don't know too much about football.
2018-07-12 02:11
CR7 was so inconsistent on La Liga and spanish Cup. He scored a lot of goals in UCL in the group phase, true. He scored 3 goals (1 penalty) against PSG, true He scored 3 goals (1 penalty) against juventus, true but he didn't do shit aside a penalty in the second match against juve, both matches against bayern, or in the grand finals of UCL He scored 3 goals (1 penalty) against Spain, true He scored an amazing header against morocco, true He failed a penalty against Iran and almost cost Portugal the exit in group stage of the WC He didn't appear at all against Uruguay. Inconsistent at all of the tournaments of this year, but he "does good when it matters" He got carried when it mattered this year, dude
2018-07-12 13:26
it wasnt ronaldos fault that he didnt appear against Uruguay
2018-07-14 14:13
Quaresma played 30 minutes and was more impactful. Pepe was the mvp for portugal on that match.
2018-07-14 14:44
still it wasnt his fualt that uruguays defense was mainly focusing him

The fact u think Pepe was MVP that match is hilarious. He was good but not MVP. Bernardo was the one actually doing something, plus our ENTIRE defense sucked dick. 3 attacks, 2 goals. Not good enough.

Dude I hope u are not just serious, Pepe gave them the two goals, the first one he missed his work, second one he headed the ball to Suarez (??), just because he scored the goal he isnt the MVP....
2018-07-14 15:18
2010 wasn't unfair. Messi was on his peak c'mon. I guess the first half on season 10-11 counts, in which Messi played amazing.
2018-07-12 02:25
yeah, he did, just like Iniesta and Xavi, who also excelled on the WC
2018-07-12 13:26
It was unfair considering that the discussion should have been between sneijder (won the treble + WC finalist) and Iniesta who won the WC, both played out of their minds that year like Messi, the difference is they won the big trophies unlike him, so it was certainly unfair
2018-07-12 13:40
2010 was the most UNFAIR ever
2018-07-14 14:14
don't ferget the 2006 tho and y so unfaire at least he won ulcl and he is by far the best scorer of 2018 . NOT 2017-2018 but only 2018. Now i think messi is out of the top 3 this year maybe mbappe grizmann or varane modric can be easely added
2018-07-14 00:38
the best scorer of 2018 didn't appear at all on UCL semifinals or the big finals. He also almost cost portugal the exit in the groupstage of the WC by doing a terrible match against Iran and also he was completely absent against Uruguay
2018-07-14 11:26
well the best scorer and the best player of world btw he also made portugal believe he didn t make like 4y ago by getting out of the group stage
2018-07-14 14:01
Man, Modric deserves it way more than CR7 this year, he was more consistent on LaLiga, more impactful in the last stages on the UCL and can be the MVP in the WC. those are way better result's than CR7, whose are more or less as "low" as Messi's this year. None of them deserves to be in the top3 this year
2018-07-14 14:42
true but if france does win the wc maybe varane (who won ucl and one of the world best defender) , mbappe or grizmann. i remember at the euro 2016 france finished second and grizmann was at the 3rd spot

If Griezmann or Mbappé scores a hat trick and play good at the beginning of next season they could lift it. Otherwise Modric will have it, regardless of the result of sunday.

yeah, if they do great on the final and Modric do shit on it, they could change things on the top, true dat

I wonder how tired he will be Sunday.
2018-07-11 23:50
i wonder who else played every single game except him...oh right...no one...godric played every single game to the fullest, except now that he played untill the 118th minute...he wasnt bad at all, it wasnt his most brilliant performance, still he did an incredible work, just like the rest of the team.

2018-07-11 23:30
You are fucking dumb and I'm not even a Messi fan xD He was best player in La Liga and won Copa del Rey for Barcelona easy. Most goals from players in top European leagues also. The only thing he wasn't best at is Champions League which was Ronaldo's competition again.
2018-07-11 23:45
man, he was CLEARLY the MVP of LaLiga and played really good on UCL untill that second match against Roma. True that he did shit on the WC, tho meanwhile CR7 was so weak on LaLiga and just like Messi didn't appear at all on UCL semifinals or the big finals. On the WC he just played 2 matches and almost cost the exit con groups for Portugal

Modric played a horrible game today against England, but they still managed to pull through. Croatia is such a great collective of players, who all want it more than anyone else. Will does really have the way more than skill in football at times. Super happy, but Modric was a shadow of himself today. A definitively not a Ballon d'Or contender. People must seriously have the worst attentionspan to even consider anyone but Messi, CR7 and Salah.

He was tired bro you can't perform at your 100% every fucking game. Especially after 2 full 120 minute games. He is a big reason why Croatia are where they are. You'd be a fool to think otherwise.
2018-07-11 23:33
Salah?!Why him? The guy won 0 (failure like expected from Liverpool), if anyone would be candidate for 3rd it's Mbappe/Bale/Modrič
2018-07-11 23:43
Wtf bale? Zidane didn't let him Play he's no Option for that
2018-07-12 02:25
the guy got one of the shittiest teams in england on the 4th place and qualified the team to the finals of ucl where ramos killed him. he didn t plqy the final so it s not his fault that the team without him were bad. if anything it s even more impressing for salah that liverpool became 0 when he left. no ronaldo=ez euro win, ez finals and semi finals of ucl

Salah was the topscorer in EPL and was a real contender for golden boot, despite his team behind him lacks so much quality. You don't need to win to be a top 3 football player in the world. By that logic the top 3 should be from the team who won most trophies, which is a flawed logic. Basically you want to rule out s1mple from getting the MVP rewards he got when his team lost the final. Your team doesn't define you, you define you. Which is why Messi is the greatest of all time, even if he hasn't won as many (1 less) UCLs than Ronaldo, and no international trophies (apart from youth ones).
2018-07-12 22:09

2018-07-14 20:54
Even if he wins world cup and scores a hat trick in the final, cr7 will still be ballon dor
2018-07-11 23:34
True :D
2018-07-11 23:39
Sorry to break this to you, but it will be between Messi and Ronaldo again. No matter how bored you are with this selection they deserve it the most and maybe a third player contesting will be Kylian Mbappe. if he wins the world cup. No other player will even be in contention to win it, cause that 25 shortlist they make is just pure bullshit so they make u think more players have a chance. It's between Ronaldo and Messi again maybe for the last time since 2007, but this year Ronaldo will win it cause of Champions League.
2018-07-11 23:38
why messi though?
2018-07-12 11:00
He's had a wonderful season for Barcelona again being top scorer in Europe's top leagues. Only thing Barca fcked up this year is CL, which is why their season doesn't look so good. They still won La Liga easily and Copa del Rey beating Sevilla 5-0 in the final.
2018-07-13 08:39
yeah but is that enough in a WC year? what about harry kane? hes a beast in PL and led his team to the semi finals. I dont think winning laliga is enough in a FIFA WC year tbh
2018-07-13 10:28
I think Ronaldo has it, just saying Messi is his closest contender even if Modrić wins WC with Croatia it won't matter much in the end.
2018-07-14 00:34
ballon d'or is for messi or ronaldo . if you think a midfielder can win it just leave football world already plz

its gonna be CR7 or Modric who will win ballon d or My guess is that all things aside the ballon d or will go to CR7 since he scored a lot of goals and did good in all competitions LaLiga, CL, WC. You can say the same for Modric but Ronaldo was the one who builded the bridges for CL final RM and Portugal for WC, modric plays a key role in croatia but he can be taken over by the likes of Rakitic and in RM - Kroos. I dont see anyone taking over scoring for Portugal and for RMl with that kind of tensity and impact as Ronaldo had. I hope it will be CR7 or Modric since I like these players a lot. No other player should be listed in Top2
