They would kill for someone like Neuer but they know he's not interested at all in a move away from Germany. Sour grapes.

4.8 on betfair so it's a trend. Ronaldo is still way ahead with 1.2 though. Messi with a 34.

Certainly a lot closer than anyone would have thought in summer. In summer it would have been more like Ronaldo 1.2, Messi 4.8 and Neuer a 34.

Should be due next week.

LOL, "Bild" had their readers vote sportsman of the year 2015. Neuer came out 1st with 49 percent, on the grounds that he won't concede a goal this year. :D

Here's an overview of the bookmakers.

So Messi's oscillating between 8 and 39. So much for bookmakers' splendid research. Not sure how useful that is. :roll:

Personalty I think Neuer has a good chance for the Ballon D'Or. Even before the shortlist came out, I did feel that he would be one of the last 3. If there is a goalkeeper to win this, he would be the one. If there would be a German to win this year, he would be the one. My ideal top 3 would be Neuer, Lahm and Messi/Robben. But I already knew Lahm wouldn't stand a chance no matter how hard he tries. Neuer probably has better chance than Ribery last year. He seems to be trending for the past few months. The world cup did help him to get a lot of exposure to the people from other countries, which is a good news. Hopefully there's a lot of people that are neutral and did not vote Ronaldo because of Ronaldo in the past year. Not putting too much hope but I would really like to see a dark horse to win. 8)

If the award still goes to Ronaldo or Messi, I think the trend will go on until they retire. :( So don't bother who is the 3rd person because he will never win.

Apparently because odds for Messi went down quite a lot. Odds for Ronaldo are around the same.

Neuer have a normal chance to get Ballon dor
28.10 in russian TV Blatter called his best players in the world in all time - DE STEFANO PELE AND NEUER
I think for Blatter Neuer is more likeable winner-with Neuer FIFA can restart his work after scandals!

Blatter last year called Leonard Messi a good boy and Penaldo a commander... it's just a decoy. :P
He's become very fluent in Money.

bundesliga.com: Do you expect Manuel Neuer to pick up the Ballon d'Or on 12 January?

Benatia: He would certainly deserve it. Manuel is phenomenal. He works incredibly hard every day in training because he always wants more and more. He's a really down-to-earth guy too and he's got a good chance against Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi because he's had an amazing year. He may not be scoring 60 goals a year, but he's conceding very few and he's indispensable for that reason.

Unfortunately his Moroccan team manager doesn't agree.

Found out apart from Cameroon, the NT managers of Niger, Mozambique and Zimbabwe are Germans too.


The manager of South Korea is Uli Stielike, a former RM player.

Some have already mentioned why it's easier for Neuer to have a good percentage. But what is to be noted is that NONE of the goalkeepers recently said to be better than Neuer are there. :lol:

Yann Sommer is the best example why it's not true that having less to do means that the save rate is better. Sommer has both the 2nd most saves in the league this season, and the 2nd best save rate. If you look a the tables at NBC, there's no obvious correlation between the number of saves made and the save percentage.
