  1. Only 2 don’t deserve to be here: CR7 and Alisson. Everyone else deserves their spots.

    Btw Simeone has seemed to fully trust De Paul and Molina now (and Correa too). And Atletico had performed much better now compared to before the WC.

  2. I want Messi to fcuk Bayern tomorrow! This guy Muller has had a lot of success against us in the past 3 world cups !! However, PSG’s midfield is in very very poor run of form, not only they are able to string 3-4 passes together they aren’t able to even make any risky passes. Defense is even worse with oldies Marquinos and old Ramos and their Left Fullbacks aren’t good enough to play for any big club!

    • Absolutely unfair, but the award is reputation bounded, some pudits just voted for him no matter how he performed, even arguing he’s the goat, my god
