Top Ballon d'Or Cotenders of 2012

The Top TenXW

1Lionel MessiLionel Andrés "Leo" Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona and the Argentina national team.

According to me Messi deserves this year ballon dor due to his outstanding performances in all competitions.. Its very difficult to score five goals in a champions's league match... He is the best player of our generation and truly deserves this title

Broken a 39 yr old record in Europe and setting 2 other records in the process with 50 La Liga goals in 1 season and 73 in all competitions. Also the 1st player in history to receive the player of the yr award on 3 consecutive occasion. He deserve it

Messi should win Ballon dor cup
messi I love you
best of luck
you will surely win this cup
you have the support of your fans and they love you

Messi is simply the best

2Cristiano RonaldoCristiano Ronaldo dos Santos Aveiro, GOIH is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Real Madrid and the Portugal national team.

Last time ronaldo dominated messi in number of goals at that time it was a record... Even though messi is given ballondor.. Who cares about records... Main thing is messi helped in winning laliga... Converse is true for this year... May be messi have records and helped in 4 titles. They are just 22 matches he scored 23 goals... Especially in champions league he scored 5 goals from one match against weak team... In remaining big matches where is he? He did nothing... His 50 goals in laliga overshadowed his mistakes in out side of liga.. But in laliga ronaldo did well than messi. And key to success. And also only sake of this Portugal his national team reached semis... Its only facts about last year statistics. Nothing else... If you have doubts... Go and check last year statistics... Don't say.. Messi is best... Ronaldo... Not... Performance is based on their team mates... When the same ronaldo is playing for man utd... He struggled to score goal... Soon after he came to madrid.. He is ...more

Cristiano Ronaldo is much better than messi. He scored 63 goals, Messi may have scored more rut he has 2 of the best passers in the game assisting him. Ronaldo is a much more rounded player.

Ronaldo is perfect and the best in the world and Messi is just not to his standards unfortunately.

Took the la liga away from barca... Superb

3Andrea PirloAndrea Pirlo is an Italian professional footballer who plays for American club New York City FC in Major League Soccer and the Italy national team.

Brought Juventus to the title and Italy to the title game. One need consider achievements beyond goal scoring; poaching and positioning is pointless without a passer. Pirlo. Punto.

Pirlo may not be a goal scorer like cristiano or messi but he is one of the most if not the best creative player in the world. Hiasses are like magic abd his free kicks are deadlier than any other player. He can defend and attack. He is already a world champion and in the euro we saw what he cab really do

4Frank LampardFrank James Lampard is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for New York City FC in Major League Soccer.

Probably one of the finest careers of the modern era, coming to an end. Even though we all know it's highly improbable that he'll win this award, I hope everyone understands the contribution that Lampard made to the game. Has more goals AND assists than Xavi, Xabi, Gerrard and Iniesta. Not to defame the other players, who are also players of the same class and caliber. But this is a tribute to my favourite player - Frank Lampard Jr.

5Andrés IniestaAndrés Iniesta Luján is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for FC Barcelona and the Spain national team.
6Mesut Ozil

Perfect short passes, good vision and contribute all into the game

7Iker CasillasIker Casillas Fernández is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Portuguese club Porto and the Spain national team as a goalkeeper.

He has made it count on numerous occasion, not only making the best, near-impossible saves of all goalkeepers, but also providing both his teams with inspiration and making his country proud.

9Xavi HernandezXavier "Xavi" Hernández Creus is a Spanish professional footballer who plays as a central midfielder for Qatari club Al Sadd SC.
