It is official. Lionel Messi is the winner of the 2012 Ballon d’Or, he is once again announced the best player in the world, for the 4th time in a row!
Lionel does not only celebrate his 4th Golden Ball, he also celebrates breaking yet another record, he has become the first player in the history of football to win 4 Ballon d’Ors. What a player!
Even though I still believe that Cristiano Ronaldo should have been the won to win the Ballon d’Or this year because of all his accomplishments, I still acknowledge Messi and admit that he is in fact, the world’s greatest player at the moment, maybe even he will become the best player in the history of football one day. He is simply an outstanding player, from another planet!
Congratulations Messi, you have once again broke another record, and i doubt it will be the last. Also, congratulations to all Messi fans, and hard luck to Iniesta and Ronaldo fans (me). Ronaldo will always be the world’s best player in our eyes.
In a very emotional scene, Alexandre Pato says goodbye to his teammates and coach in Milanello after he decided to leave AC Milan and go back to his country Brazil to recover from his injuries and regain his fitness. In the video, Alexandre tears up a little, and so does the captain of AC Milan, Massimo Ambrosini.
It is a very sad news indeed, we can only hope that one day, Pato will be the upcoming superstar again and return to defend the colors of Ac Milan.
It is indeed a very sad day for AC Milan fans. After 5 year of a beautiful journey with AC Milan, Alexandre Pato says goodbye to his girlfriend ( Barbara Berlusconi), his teammates and Milano.. Alexandre has left AC Milan!
What a striking news that all ACM fans woke up to, their superstar is gone! He decided that it is better for him and for everyone to go back to his country (Brazil). After 2 years of struggling with injuries, Pato made the decision of going back to Brazil, to maybe find a cure, to be the upcoming star once again, and he knew if he stayed in ACM he would not be able to do that, which is why he made the difficult decision, he joined Corinthians, a Brazilian team to help him get back on his feet again.
However, the president of ACM, Silvio Berlusconi reassured his fans that Alexandre will come back, sooner or later, because ACM is his home, it is where he belongs.
So, I say this to all ACM fans: “Do not lose hope, be happy for Alexandre, pray for him to get better, and have faith, believe that your superstar will return, one day…”
Barcelona players congratulating Lionel Messi after breaking Gerd Müller’s record. 86 goals in 2012, what a legend!
Congratulations to all Barcelona and Messi fans.
Yes, he did it! Lionel Messi broke German great Gerd Müller’s 40-year-old record for most goals in a year by scoring for the 86th time in 2012 today. Messi has scored 74 goals for Barcelona and 12 times for Argentina this year, and he has three more games in which he can add to his tally before the end of the year. Müller scored 85 for Bayern Munich and West Germany.
All of this comes after the 25-year-old Messi passed Brazil great Pele’s single-season milestone of 75 goals for Brazil and Santos in 1958 with his 75th and 76th goals of the year on Nov. 11 to move into second place behind Mueller.
Of course, even though he has passed both legends (Pele and Mueller), they are still (in my opinion) far greater than him, because football back then was not the same as it is now, it was much harder to score goals, and both Pele and Mueller did not have Xavi and Iniesta by their sides. Certainly what I am saying does not mean that Messi is not an amazing player, a legend, but all I am saying is that in my personal opinion, players like Pele, Maradona and Müller can not be compared to anyone, even the great Messi.
Ozil to the rescue…
What a goal by the amazing Ozil! He really is underrated in Real Madrid. Yes, no one can deny that Cristiano Ronaldo is an amazing player, but because he is stealing all the lights from all the other great players, and one of them is Ozil…
Today, Real Madrid were down 2-1 to Vallodeed, until Ozil scored 2 goals, one of them was an amazing freekick that led Real Madrid to another win in La Liga, just another proof of how amazing he is, as a player, and as a person.
Celebrating the birthday of the football legend Pele by remembering his best moments as a football player.
70 years of being a legend, 70 years of being respected, 70 years of being .. Pele!
Happy Birthday you Legend.
