Messi wins Ballon d'Or again
January 8, 2013 9:40am CST
Messi set a new record again after being the first player to win Ballon d'Or for four consecutive times. The Argentine received 41.60 percent of the while Ronaldo got 23.68 percent and Iniesta 10.91 percent. Well done to Messi for an incredible year.

With the kind of form he is in, he is the red hot favorite to win any honors that his name is connected to. He is truly extraordinary. I wonder how long will his record stand - it is definitely not in my generation to see another player who can do better than that!

Was there any doubt he was going to win? He seems to have caught the fancy of everyone in the world of football. The only thing I dont understand is why Sneijder didn't win in 2010 and Iniesta didn't win in 2012. What's the point of individual brilliance if the team does not win a trophy.

Given the year that he has had, it was hardly a surprise. What was surprising to me is the 34% who voted for Ronaldo and Iniesta. 90+ goals in a calendar year that too from a midfield position, that is amazing by any account. So I would say that he deserves it and it is no surprise that he won it. Cheers! Ram
