Ballon d'or is not about goals. Ronaldo didn't win any trophies. Messi deserves it much more than anybody. 4 trophies to a frigging "ZERO" if we compare it with Ronaldo. Plus you can keep scoring hattricks and super-hattricks agains the minnows but when it comes to deciding the big games for Madrid; CR7 disappeared big time in the past season. While Messi, he lead his team to the TREBLE WINNER with his goals, assists, passes, leading to the assists, destroying defenders, etc. This guy played probably the best football of his career with Barca last season.
While its true that Ronaldo has more goals, Messi has been the better player by far in the first half of 2015. Based on the statistics records, we can see that Messi has performed on all around aspects: scoring, assisting, key passes and chances created.
Yes, football is about winning and creating goals (not only making goals). You do assist, you helping your teammates for creating goals. You got it? I told you, ballon d'or is not about goals, but how good that players to lead their team to be the winner. Even Cristiano Ronaldo said on ITV's the Jonathan Ross Show:
"To be honest I think Messi is going to win this year because this kind of trophy, it depends on votes,"
