Barca bias for the 2010 FIFA Ballon d'Or: Xavi, Messi and Iniesta.
I'm surprised not to see Sneijder making the cut. He was THE key player at Inter's most succesful season ever. And after that he was THE key player at the Dutch squad that made the World Cup final. What more do you want?
Messi, while phenomenal, didn't really have his best year. They could've left him out this time.

I agree with you Josti, it's a big scandal that Sneijder isn't among the 3 best. To be honest, I believe he deserved the Balon d'Or for his amazing performances in 2010. Shame on those who have votedWhen you're tired of rallying...you're tired of life

He's only out because there can only be 3 finalists, and all three deserve it.
All 6 to be honest, it's hard to choose between Del Bosque, Pep and (grumble grumble) ok Mourinho too maybe.
Barca can be proud: they didn't have to buy any golden balls.... Xavi, Iniesta and Messi are all a product of Barca's youth footballHola Amisgüitos

Josti, I agree with the Sneijder thing, but then 2 of other guys won the little final he played in July. One scored the winning goal while the other created/orchestrated most of his team's wins all through the year.
Messi did' nt have a good year you say? 47 goals ain't enough ? + countless assits. He had a o.kworld cup although not scoring but was only poor in the Germany game. (anyways he won't win it this year, Iniesta/Xavi will)Adios Pep

"Now some of them are showing themselves to be bad losers."
Has Blatter had a brain explosion? FIFA has had allegations of deep corruption laid at at. Corruption and collusion by very definition fly in the face of "fair play ideas", and yet he has the gall to dismiss the whole thing...
"There is no systematic corruption in Fifa. That is nonsense," he said. "We are financially clean and clear."
Blatter stated that Fifa could not act as if nothing had happened, adding he wanted to set up a taskforce to look into compliance issues, without giving details.
OK, FIFA itself might be "financially clean and clear" but that says nothing for the people who act as its agents.
I don't think that England are bad losers. We didn't hear complaints from England in 2000 when Germany won the 2006 World Cup did we? Why? Because in theory, that bidding process was won by "fair play" principles..
FIFA president Sepp Blatter has been accused of corruption by the general secretary of world soccer's governing body Michel Zen-Ruffinen in an explosive report presented to the executive committee.
Zen-Ruffinen alleges in his "strictly confidential" 21-page dossier - obtained by Reuters - that the 66-year-old Blatter has systematically mismanaged FIFA by deception, illegal payments, violating the statutes and cronyism since becoming president in 1998.
I'm sorry Mr Blatter, but your of opinion of calling England "bad losers" is beyond worthless.Horse! You have failed in your mission! We are lost with no sign of Sweetville. Do you have any final words before your summary execution?

After the game and France were through to the Finals it was suggested that it was in FIFA's interest to have France at the WC rather than Ireland.
When confronted with the possibility of replaying the game due to the blatant handling and admission of such Blatter was heard laughing about the Irish demands for "fair" play supported by the French team, countless players and the English FA suggesting some type of remedy.
Blatter was forced to apologize. Not that it did any good but the cynical b****** was exposed.
How England has not had a World Cup since 1966 is beyond me.
They have the stadiums and the infrastructure. Brazil is building new stadiums that will end up like those in South Africa. Empty and starting to fall to the ravages of time although only months since they were played upon.
Stadium of Light, Old Trafford, Wembley, Stamford Bridge, Anfield, Reebok Stadium, Villa Park, Emirates (sic) Stadium, White Hart Lane are a few completely ready and waiting. Shoot the second level of English football has stadiums as good as the Premier Division.
