Congratulations VVD and Becker, awesome to see two out of the four top player awards going to Liverpool players.

Also the first Ballon D'Or for a defender and first from the PL. No small feat, and fully deserved for both after completely transforming our defence and making Liverpool one of the most feared teams in Europe again.

Makes a big change from years past when we'd only look on at Barca, RM, Bayern, Juve and could only dream of playing regularly at their level.

Good times.

Not the actual ballon dor just the UEFA player of the year (based on CL season) . Nice to see them win it and fully deserved. 4 of our back 5 making the best 11 shows how important our defence really was in winning no.6. The year before our front 3 all hit 10 goals each and they carried us, last year they didn't get near those numbers but our defence took care of results. Clean sheets against napoli bayern Barcelona and crucially spurs were the difference. And seeing Virgil sitting alongside Messi and Ronaldo before claiming his award shows the level he's at. And it would be fantastic to see him scoop the ballon dor come the end of the year.

VVD didn't win the Ballon D'Or - He won the UEFA Men's Player of the Year Award.

The Ballon D'Or has been won by defenders such as Cannavaro and Beckenbauer.

And I’m pretty sure Michael Owen did win the Ballon D’dor didn’t he? So an Prem and LFC player has won it before.

{Ed025's Note - yeah in 2001 westwood..

Ronaldo won it when he was in the premier league as well also 2008 I believe. Nevertheless I understand what your point is SGRed and I agree it’s great to see the players getting accolades for last season. Hopefully the team as a whole pick up a couple more trophies as a collective this season.

My bad - jumped the gun there. 😉.

Or you just saw into the future SGR ;)

IMO, VVD should win the Ballon D'Or this season, Messi and CR7 have not even deserved to be shortlisted and even if they were, VVD's performances and immediate impact on not just LFC's brilliant season BUT on Holland as a whole, is all you need. A great player is judged on not just how he performs BUT most importantly, does he make his team mates better.

Nobody can ever deny how much VVD has made his team mates better up and down the pitch, something CR7 and Messi did not do this season. Having said that, I won't be shocked if one of Messi or Ronaldo wins cos it is now political instead of actually being judged on your talent and the substance of your performances.

{Ed025's Note - yeah all liverpool players should make team of the year according to you, klopp should be made pope, bobby prime minister and alisson the new dalai lama, have a day off will you mate ffs..

Well SGRed was describing the UEFA award which was only created in 2010 in which time he was right in saying no PL player or any defender has won. Ronaldo and Messi a few times and I think ribery, modric and maybe iniesta the only others to win.
