Another trigger warning ladies...First the Golden Ball and now FIFA's best player...

Ladies, I am doing a nice leisurely backstroke in the river of your collective tears.

(they taste delicious btw).

PS Balon D'or will cap off all the awards for the best player in the world, Luka Modric.

If no other reporting existed on Trump/Russia, the fact that the FBI started a CI investigation to determine whether or not the sitting president of the US was either comprised by or an agent of Russia, it would be the biggest political story...ever.

Soros is very, very rich and funds every SJW-cause imaginable. Those are facts, not a conspiracy.

I agree with him that this was a total setup

When the stars align, they truly align. I don't know what Modric did in his past life to deserve this one, but he's really cruising in this life, effortlessly. Never had the pressure of Ronaldo but now gets the recognition of an elite player.

Personally, I do think a few other players deserved it over him just based on overall performances (statistics) but his WC and CL pitch influence really set him apart from everyone else. He wasn't the best player in either tournaments but combined, overall, I doubt anyone had a greater influence than him. I do think he wouldn't have won it if Croatia didn't make the final. Had they lost to England, he most likely wouldn't have won it.

I'm also not sure he's the best Croatian football player all time but after these awards, it's hard to argue against it. Performance wise, I still have a few other players ahead of him in Croatian history.

Also, I highly doubt anyone here is triggered by Modric. Most people here like him as a football player. I don't know anything about him as a person though but that's not what we are judging here

I'm assuming this thread is related to this news?

https://www.skysports.com/football/n...rance-football

"A women's Ballon d'Or will be launched this year, marking the first occasion the prestigious award will be open to female footballers."

Modric the historic first winner?

With all due respect to Boban, Zuti, Suker and hell, even pre-91 players like Beara and Bajdo - who is even close to Luka at this point in terms of accomplishments for both club and country?

in terms of accomplishments, Modric is the greatest footballer from the ex-Yu ever... i cannot even really think of a player that comes close to what Modric has achieved

in terms of ability, it is too subjective a topic for any real definitive answer

Capello beamed: "From Savicevic you came to expect these unthinkable plays of brilliance, because from the position he was in most players would have just taken the ball in stride and gone a little further with it, instead he went for this spectacular attempt which has gone down in history and is shown over and over again. It was simply.... Una cosa da Savicevic [the way of Savicevic]."

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes?

Modric might become the first player ever to accept the award via a video link from jail.

He should also get the Ron Paul Award for Tax Evasion
Hopefully he gets away with it

De'Andre stick to kneeling for the anthem with the other hood rats from Chicago.

I drank some serb player's tears as well. Tastes very bitter but nevertheless delicious.

The Slovenian and Montenegrin captains and Bosnian cap and Barca slayer Dzeko all voted Luka #1. As did none other than Messi.

But bitterly jealous and hack Kolarov didn't put Luka in his top 3. What a little b.itch. Obviously is still bitter from the spanking in Zagreb, though I personally thank him for his beautiful free kick that day.

There is no better player in the world at releasing pressure then Luka Modric. Time and time again he would start an attack after being surrounded by 2-3 players. Luka is one of the rare players who thrives when he being pressed by the opposing team.
