    Always going to happen.  Give a feck personally.

    Four out of ten are ours though.  Now that I do like.

    What was it 50 goals last season?

    Hard to argue against him.

    Yeah, not surprised Messi got it(if this is accurate), but 4 of the top 6 is impressive, it is a little odd that City have none, considering they won the league ahead of us.

    He is the GOAT however after reading neither he or Ronaldo showed up for the ceremony the year Modric won it has diminished my opinion of them both :(

    I'm not surprised there are no Citeh players there. Its voted for by journalists, coaches and captains from across Europe, so most of the opinions will be formed in the CL. We've had two finals in two years and the best comeback since Istanbul and they've done absolutely fuck all of note

    Jesus Christ Dreamy. I know that being the “highly evolved” “fan” is part of your internet ”persona” but it’s as fucking boring as Modo banging on about Henderson and Lallana. Being a fan is partly about being irrational too - so fuck off with your “hard to argue against him”. He’s a twat and Van Dijk should get it.

    Four out of the top 6. It should have been at least 8 of the 10, but no way they'd hsce allowed that.

    It's not hard to argue for him if you make the same fucking point every time it's brought up.

    It was leaked last week.. even Virgil knows the result. You could see it in his face when Gary Linekar asked him on MoTD  

    Don't agree with it personally..  but it is what it is.. defenders dont usually win.

    Also, hard to forget, was at his very best when his team needed him most at Anfield ...

    Don’t give 2 fucks about this but not sure I believe this list to be accurate. The Ronaldo hype machine is too low at #4.

    But it is hard to argue. Wasn't it 50 goals last season?

    It’s not part of my internet persona. It’s my opinion. I love VVD and it’s wonderful to finally have a CB some fans used to argue Agger etc was as good as.

    But arguing against a player scoring 50 goals in a top side who won their league and only lost the CL because of the greatest come back ever is a bit silly.

    He’s not Roy of the Rovers. He scored a screamer in the away leg and would have finished the tie only for the selfishness of teammates

    There's a long post/thread in this somewhere... I think De Ligt is the latest footballer to thrive off a manufactured reputation rather than his actual performances on the pitch. Similar to the likes of Pogba, Quaresma, Balotelli. I think Mino Raiola was the agent of all them, too.

    I'm not quite sure how it works yet, but he's definitely done a great job of getting his clients higher up the chain than their abilities should ordinarily allow.

    Look at Pogba. He's shite. Yet, people will argue he's world class. He's a huge name. He is highly rated on video games, always in the discussion for individual awards. Kids love him. He'll move for north of £100m. But just watch him. He's rubbish.

    The same is happening with De Ligt. He's shit.
