An Alternate Look At The Ballon D'Or

Episode 141,  Oct 13, 11:00 PM

It's a Continental Club takeover this week on the podcast as Dougie Critchley and Michael McCubbin join Henry Hill for a slightly different episode. With the Ballon D'or 2021 nominations being released, the trio take a look at the award since 2008, when Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo began their duopoly. If this pair didn't exist, who would have won each year instead? A lot of talk about Andres Iniesta and Xavi, naturally, but also fond memories of Manuel Neuer, Franck Ribery and Wesley Sneijder come up. Has Neymar deserved one on merit in the last few years, and how the hell did Luis Suarez not win it that one year? It's a great chat.
