i have a theory on ronaldo his lack of personal awards (as in ballon d'or fifa footballer of the year or w/e the fuck its called nowadays and this list)

 

u man wanna hear it ok 

 

for what must b the first time people r writing messi off this year, blame injury, barca not playing like the 300 spartans, fanboyism or w/e but messi detractors are at an all time high

 

if ronaldo was to win one of them big boy awards it would basically be by "default" u follow, "it was getting boring having messi win every year" (similar to olujawon beating mj for the MVP after he won three years in a row)

 

and years down the line people might view it with an asterik in their head (similar to cannavaro/dnt wanna hear about the titles he won that year safe)

 

this is a tremendous disrespect to the boy ronnie who is ten times exciting as 

 

who agrees who disagrees who thinks i should go to sleep and do not watch enuff football

Honestly haven't been watching Barca this year if you say that.

 

Only Messi is above Suarez, Iniesta too maybe other than that.....
