News this week of the voting that led to Cristiano Ronaldo being elected as best player. Fair enough, won la Liga and European champions league. Gareth Southgate voted hoping number 1 also. However his number 2 was Luca M Modric, and number 3 Toni Kroos. Lionel Messi scored 54 times and made countless assists yet doesn't make Southgate's top 3?

Teess - ain't you noticed ? High scoring and Southgate don't go together ! (Judging by England's efforts). It's all bollox as you say anyway - maybe Modric is the best player by far ? Who can say ? But I understand your point - Messi is special indeed.

Gareth Southgate has the personality and tactical nounce of a piece of wet lettuce. A good background person to have around, but never a leader. He's a square peg in a round hole.

Caller - Allardyce and Southgate together ?? Just an idea . . .
(Southgate can keep an eye on Big Sam ! )

So no one voted for Harry Kane ? Or Kante ? Or Hazard ? Or Kevin de Best ?

Night all !
