Lets be honest, will there be anyone near his level once Messi is past his prime? I could see him winning 3 straight balon d ors in 2 years from now
well because every little nation can vote, and for countries like Antigua & barbuda the only existing teams are Halal and Uefalona my guess is that only those teams player will win the fallond'or in the coming years. That shit became the worst meme of football along with the FIFA team of the year. I think he and James will bag a few in the years to come, but I couldn't care less
>players like hazard and de bruyne will rival for the balloon door once Drogaldo and Messi retire.
I follow Neymar since 2009, my friend. The guy is a beast, different. Destined to be a GOAT. His father prepared his son since he was 9 years old. Old man knew his son would be a genius. Check the history.
Pele lasted until his 30s. So did Romario. Ronaldo remained good until 30, but injuries were the reason for his decline. Rivaldo too.
Honestly, the only two examples of truly great talents dropping off after 25 are Ronaldinho and Adriano, with the latter being down to depression.
>Adriano, with the latter being down to depression.
the fucking feels. he was supposed to be one of the GOATs
He needs a mentor or he will go the Brazilian way of stop giving a fuck and party. If Messi and him both stay in Barcelona, Nerman could easily become the best in the world once Messi becomes a new Xavi
Funny, I remember 30yr old Rivaldo scoring a hat-trick on you at home.
He's okay, he parties with Narcos now instead of partying with fuccboi football players and gets all the bunda coke can get him.
halal can't develop youth, and that kid's development/contract/parental interference/wages are already all kinds of fucked up
you'd be better off betting on Halilovic
>you'd be better off betting on Halilovic
This. Halilovic is legit one of the best players on his La Liga team at the moment, meanwhile the only time I've heard about Odegaard after his Madrid move was when he refused to train with reserves
bale will win one randomly where he has a nuts season and madrid wins the treble
harry kane will win one when he carries spurs to the PL title and a CL final appearance (but loss)
neymar and messi will win every other one
it means literally nothing right now. And even if they do get to the CL, their window will only be 1-2 year long because as soon as they achieve anything there all their best players will be off to Madrid/PSG/City/United
>as soon as they achieve anything there all their best players will be off to Madrid/PSG/City/United
yeah this worries me. the new stadium needs to be finished ASAP and the young players need to not get snatched up before it's finished and before more money, thus better wages, comes in due to stadium naming rights, CL money, higher revenues from tickets, more merch sales due to higher international profile, etc. the timing seems to be coinciding pretty well with the uptick in play, downtick in average age, and imminent new stadium
there is nothing to learn, when a player gets a good offer from a top club and wants to leave then he's as good as gone 99% of the time. all you can do is maybe keep him for 1 more year
>Neymar is somewhat humble but time to time we see his monkey side come out
>Neymar becames full time monkey
>Ego keeps growing
>Gets his legs broken
Screencap this and come back in 2019.
So, Suarez is suspended for tomorrow and it looks likely that Messi will be held out as a precaution.
I'm very interested how is Neymar going to play without those two. Not that I expect much, Athletic away is a very tough game and he'll probably play with Munir and Sandro in attack
sterling, the english messi
vardy is already close
