Vainqueur d'un sixième Ballon d'Or France Football dans sa carrière, Lionel Messi n'avait jamais aussi eu une si petite avance au classement final. Virgil van Dijk échoue en effet à sept petits points !
GOLD BALLOON FF 2019
Lionel Messi won the Ballon d'Or France Football 2019 against Virgil van Dijk for only 7 points!
Winner of a sixth Golden Ball France Football in his career, Lionel Messi had also never had such a small lead in the final standings. Virgil van Dijk fails in fact to seven small points!
No, Virgil van Dijk will not succeed to Fabio Cannavaro, the last defender to have raised a Ball of Gold France Football, it was in 2006. But that the Dutch happened very, very close to raise the precious trophy. Second in BO 2019, he was named for the first time in his career, Liverpool defender has collected 679 points. A great performance, but not big enough to shade Lionel Messi who got 686 points, seven more units, only. One of the tightest Ballon d'Or France Football polls in history!
The longer the Ev's winless streak goes at Anfield, the more the Anfield Derby gives me pause. Law of averages says it has to end soon. And 20 years and 21 straight games is a heck of a long, winless run. You just hope and pray it's not this time.
Funny feeling going into this. Not through the fear of finally losing one per se. More, as much as this is always THE game you want to win more than ANY other every season if you're from/ still live in the City; the very fact that this IS this glorious City, following on from the court verdict last week, gives me the feeling I'll be emotionally all over the place again tomorrow night as we'll put rivalry aside and come together as one in a big show of Scouse pride and defiance against the rest of the Country and the Establishment in remembering our own. The plan for the mosaic the Kop looks boss. True Evertonian's have always been our closest allies over Sheffield and their compassion and support will never be forgotten. And the Justice banner for one from @PeterJMacca that's been widely circulated the last few days ..... Absolutely awesome and I can't thank proper Blues like him enough. In an ideal World, the absolute dickheads among their number will think twice tomorrow about resorting to their pathetic, disgraceful point-scoring over death as the game rolls on.
Here's to the mighty Reds making history and putting another one over the Blues.
Here's to reminding the rest of the Country this City stands as one in going nowhere from standing up for what's right.
The result of the Derby's mightly important. But in the great scheme of things, it really isn't.
Normally good at these but I'm honestly running out of things to say about these historical, relentless Reds.
So let's leave it simple-
Soz abar us if you support one of the other 19 teams.
L'pool are boss.
Everton are *****.
Reds are buzzing off the best side in Europe by a Country mile doing ridiculous things to 'supposed' rivals in said rivals Cup Final. Whilst still, frighteningly, nowhere near hitting top form yet this season.
Blues Chrimbo is cancelled yet again by the Redshites reserve side.
As Klopp replied yesterday to being told that, 'It's like being crowned by the King!'
And this is a lad who's form has dipped this year from super-human to mere mortal. Whilst still being head and shoulders better than any other CH on the planet. Wonder if the imbeciles are still laughing at the fee?
Talking of, Christ knows the **** he'd be getting if he'd been playing as poor as Maguire has this year?
