Over the past couple of weeks the football worlds two most prestigious prizes for an individual player, namely the Ballon D' Or and the FIFA World Player of the Year award, have both been handed out. AC Milan's Ukrainian forward Andriy Shevchenko took the Ballon D' Or and Barcelona's Ronaldinho took FIFA's award. Now the injustice. Arsenal's superstar Frenchman Thierry Henry was hotly tipped to take both awards beforehand, having narrowly missed out on World Player of the Year last time round to Zinedine Zidane. Henry was such a hot favourite as he had scored and set up more goals than either of the eventual winners. Some would argue that Henry's international endeavours with France in Euro 2004 cost him the trophies but when you consider Shevchenko didn't even take part in the tournament (Ukraine didn't qualify) and Ronaldinho hardly shone in his sides World Cup qualifers it seems a bit harsh to persecute Henry for France's failures. The bottom line is that Thierry Henry deserved at least one of those titles and its a damn shame that the man's achievements over the past year haven't been given their deserved recognition.

I might agree with you about Shevchenko, but Ronaldinho is having a ridiculous year. Plus Barca and Ronaldinho have really improved as the year has gone on, while Arsenal, and to a lesser extent Henry, have fallen off. Henry should have gotten it last year instead of Zidane. I think Zidane's been highly overrated these last few years. He hasn't even been the best player on his team, much less in the world.

Man's most valuable trait is a judicious sense of what not to believe.

Jesus Christ. If I didn't see this myself, I'd be frustrated tomorrow afternoon and asking myself when the fake results were going to stop propogating. When James Lee choked out Wiuff in 39 seconds, I said "wow, what an upset.
