Messi (27) demands Luis Enrique sacking after Barcelona manager opted to drop him for their Catalan Super Cup clash against rival Espanyol [MARCA]
Barcelona line-up (official): Masip - Adriano Pique
Bartra Alba - SergiRoberto Samper Rafinha - Pedro Suarez Munir #fcblive

Bench Barcelona: Ter Stegen, Montoya, Rakitic, Xavi; Ie, Grimaldo, Halilovic, Adama, Sandro

Vs espanyol

Really disappointed about Montoya not getting his chance :/
Suarez starting, I am really excited to see him play.
what do you guys honestly think about sergi roberto? hes a good player but IMO he is not shown star potential.
Yay Halilovic :-)
That Suarez's assist tho! o.O
freakin brilliant.

Fifa ballon d'or is becoming more and more of a joke. isnt this an award commemorating the worlds best player for the season? shouldnt it be objectively and stay away from controversy of any player? why is luis suarez not included knowing well that even in less playing time he scored the same ammount of goals ronaldo did in the season and carried liverpool last season? why goetze and james included knowing the mediocre season they had for their respective teams? are you counting the world cup more? then why is hazard in it? if its a mix then if a german player doesnt get it this year this award is nothing but a joke. lahm or mueller are my top pick since the dominated last season and won the fking world cup but knowing them, itll probably go to cristiano or messi again...
thanks again Fifa for, little by little, ruining the sport I love
I would say Messi, Good at World Cup, Good League record. Whole field footballer!

Haters gonna hate! Potatoes gonna potate.
+4
Also in the coach of the year award how can you leave out jorge luis pinto? who guided costa rica to the top of the group of death and guided them to the quater finals? f**k fifa and their inconsistent choices every year, it seems, Fifa comes to the spotlight for controversy in anything they said why is sepp blatter you should do football a favour and go burry yourself....alive.

Fifa is just like john oliver says my sausage because even though i hate them with all my being, I will not let that affect how much i love the sport.

When a billion people was watching him on TV world wide, he bit another f*****g person. I don't give two shits what he did with Liverpool last season. When you embarrass and humiliate the beautiful game that we all love and watch every weekend, then to hell with you.

I think politics aside, he is by far the 3rd best player in the world. But, I have no problem with him not making the list.

Having said that, I admire Suarez and think he will do great things with you guys. I love the guy to death!

edit: are you seriously questioning why Simeone won it? ...
+5
simeone wha..?? Im talking about the short list of the best coach award recently released.
I was also mad when suarez but this is a FOOTBALL award if Fifa is looking at the actions of players as well then in the same sense NO player who has ever dived and proven to be a diver can and shouldnt make it and yes i mean ronaldo but i also mean robben and even neymar. why? because this is a f*****g football award and it should include the best footballers from last seasons objectively all I want is consistency from the fucks at fifa that have no clue what they are doing
Andres you just said James Rodriguez doesn't deserve to be there just for his world cup performance.

"why goetze and james included knowing the mediocre season they had for their respective teams? are you counting the world cup more?"

But then went on to say how on earth is Jose Luis Pinto not there for the manager award because of HIS World Cup Performance.

If James shouldn't be there just for WC, neither should Jose Pinto. To me it just seems like you're ranting a bit aimlessly, its nothing personal against you.

I personally gave up on Fifa and awards ages ago. You can't take them seriously anymore.
+5
exactly hinkmant I want consitency from the awards fifa presents. I just cannot comprehend fifa selection process and how could they not consider certain players and how others were. for example hazard had a great season with chelsea mind you they didnt have anything to show for it at the end of the season and his wolrd cup performance...well look at google because im sure his request to take it down was laughed at. I worry way too much about this but its because i feel the players who perfomed amazing last season are not being represented by fifa.

another fact to consider is this until leo messi ballon d'or in 2010 the ballon d'or had only been handed out to world cup winners after the world cup. I am in no way arguing that leo deserved that award because he did and everyone should know my stand point. but I am and will always be a big critic of Fifa's inconsistency year in and year out
+1
Have to agree with realfan here. I love Suarez and he definitely deserved to be #3 on the basis of football, but FIFA did the right thing not including him.
+3
Im sorry guys maybe i shouldn't feel so strong about this but i do...
Here are the rules of the Ballon d'Or nominations:
http://www.fifa.com/mm/document/ballond'or/playeroftheyear(men)/02/19/74/14/fbo_rulesofallocation2013-en_neutral.pdf

Article 3:
"The Awards are bestowed according to on-field performance and overall behaviour on and off the pitch."

There's your answer. Tbh, this could be a good thing for you guys as these kinds of punishment are likely to stop him from doing anything crazy again. I didn't see him finishing in the top 3 after the WC incident anyway, so maybe he's not really missing out on that much.
Still, it sucks not seeing one of the very best footballers not on there.
+4
Badge with the game, set and match.

Anyway, I do think the list is even more ridiculous this year than in previous years. Big names seem get an auto-inclusion while lesser names who performed spectacularly in their respective positions don't get a nomination. I honestly think a player like Radja Nainggolan (most of you will not even know him) deserved to be there at least as much as another Belgian (just so I don't come across as biased again) like Hazard. It's just that Nainggolan isn't one of the biggest names in football and is a defensive midfielder by trade, rather than a flashy winger.
+2
It's an okay list.

The one person whose selection can't be justified on any basis (lol) is Benzema. Apart from him, I would question the inclusion of Ramos, Masch, and Yaya Toure, despite Ramos' CL goals and Masch's WC performance.

The rest seemed fine to me. Hazard is debatable on the basis of performance too maybe, but it's a borderline case, and it's hard to care about whether he should be ranked 23 or 24... :)
Nainggolan has been superb for Roma but some of the other exclusions are even more ridicules Miranda, Godin, Koke, Reus Cahill, Matic, Alonso and Rakitic all deserve to be there instead of Mascherano, Iniesta, Ramos, Benzema, Pogba, Gotze, Aguero and Rodriguez.
+1
I especially don't like the fact that koke isn't in there. That guy was amazing the whole year.

But Cahill? Was he that good last year? (I wasn't paying attention...)
I think he was really underrated last season here are his stats in the BPL last season

Games 30
Tackles 34
Clearances 205
Fouls conceded 12
Yellow Cards 2
Clean sheets 15

Tackles per game 1.13

Clearances per game 6.83

Fouls per game 0.4

Was also named in the PFA team of the year
+1
James and Benzema deserve to be on the short-list. Lay off the haterade fellas
+1
^ ya since when you start noticing that player named James Rodriguez exists ?
+2
About 4 months, give or take 2 days hahahahahahahahaha
Imho, Cahill is a decent defender, playing in a fantastic setup with a fantastic captain. Cahill is great, but he has real obvious limitations like backing off the ball and sometimes getting beat way too easily (hence all the spectacular blocks) but he is a good player. If any Chelsea FC defender should be on there, it should be JT, but he definitely won't get that recognition lol
and also comparing Jose Pinto with james is quite naive , Jose pinto didn't had any other opportunity then WC to be on the list , while james had whole year to do that , its just like james scored 3/10 in a test while jose scored 3/3 .
Leo Messi makes dream come true for 30 sick children from around the world http://ow.ly/Dtafi

Media wont post that -_-
+1
Not trying to be a massive a hole but i saw that today on bleacher report.

Great gesture from Messi. Unselfish.
@danny , TBF Bleacher report is hardly a media exposure , what no one can deny is that messi has been targeted unfairly for about year and half now and this targeting is led by Spanish media , they make sure to blow every little thing he does on & off the pitch , for Eg the substitution thing , it was clear thumb up from messi , felt like a sort of plea from him to let him continue but what marca published ' messi turned his back '

Well i don't think i would be expecting any thing else from a paper that published ' Di maria who ? '
+3
Neymar scored in 6 of the first 9 Liga rounds of the season. Messi did so just once: 2012/2013
+2
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B0-K6ARCQAACgFy.jpg:large

Messi needs 7 more assist to top most assist in Laliga record and he will beating traitor no 1 once he does that :D
+3
i can only imagine messi's stats when he retires... dudes gonna be leader of nearly every stat lol
+4
When those players that were holding the record ever thought someone would beat it? I mean how long before someone beats Messi's records? Oh and for me the biggest accomplishment is beating Raul's CL record. Both Messi and Ronaldo are on the verge of breaking it and they will go wayyy past it. I don't think anyone in our life time would be able to achieve that.
Plot twist, blatter does away with champions league tomorrow.
Tevez gets Argentina call after 3 years !!!

wet nights for someone ahead ;)
+5
I almost certain where it's directed at;) am all over moon though I kinda expected this since Tata took in charge.happy for him,hope he will justify Tata's decision..
Don't understand how Tevez was even out of the squad to begin with hes been so good with every team hes played for he should have definitely been in the world cup for Argentina
+3
He took a 6 month break from football, during the middle of the season. That's why.

The guy has no right to be near the Argentina national team...
^that was in freaking 2011,lot happened since.if you read aguero autobiography,you can see its happened due to equal mistakes of him and mancini,after mancini did tell him to leave from team.I don't see the problem actually,there plenty of hot heads playing their trade for respective countries,between he changed a lot..
+1
The Ballon D'or shortlist is absolutely criminal this year as it always is. Atletico getting absolutely no respect, with the only players kind of representing them now being Chelsea players. No Koke, no Godin. Whereas Mario Gotze makes the list for scoring in the WC final despite an average season with bayern, and a poor WC campaign outside of the final goal. Suarez is also not on the list

On the bright side Masch is on the list, and deservedly so.
+5
No Suarez? Hahahahag
+1
For me it could go to suarez no problem. I think ronaldo will win it but it would not be a crime for suarez to win it. He was insane before his biting ban.

^I guess you could say his biting incident was also a moment of insanity :P

Suarez isn't on it for obvious reasons, although it's really unfair to omit the best player in the world last year aside from the 2 immortals due to a moment of madness. If it wasn't for that, I think he would've been in the top 3 this year. I hope the 3rd spot goes to Robben or a German player.
+1
Lol
Cristiano is the deserved Balon D'Or this year. Even though he shouldn't have gotten it last year, this year was definitely his year.
+4
@Badge ,I wanted to say this on united forum but I guess I have take enough heat on that forum already , I do understand the reason why Suarez is not on the list but then shouldn't same reason be used to remove Ronaldo from the list too ? No doubt Suarez behavior gives wrong message but so does Ronaldo's constant diving , I think he will win it and deservedly so but even with his amazing form he is in he don't let slip a chance to dive and win penalty , diving might not be consider as bad as biting but still it bring shame to this sport we like .
+2
@yousif,agreed but he had shocking world cup that could do a little against him.
+1
Diving really isn't comparable to biting two players in the span of 13 months though. And if we were to take players off the list due to diving, then almost none of the attacking players nominated would've been on there and the list would've been made up of defenders and goalies :P

With that said, I agree with you that diving is shameful and is pretty much a way of cheating. It's a shame that some of the most talented players in the world find the need to do it and often go unpunished for it.
It's about time we start handing out fines for those incidents.
To be fair ronaldo was injured or at least unfit for the entire world cup. So its not exactly relevant that he didnt drag portugal to the finals , a la messi.

However an injured ronaldo is still better than any other attacker in the Portuguese team.and you can imagine the negative impacts of sitting out a world cup if you are the star and captain of a nation.
i agree with you @Franky4fingers about this --> "It might not be a bad idea for lucho to play messi behind Suarez with neymar and another winger." -- >This is something new..

anyway messi can play attacking midfield and can move forward in the striker line to find some open space.. either way..
