    Uefa team of the year

    http://en.toty.uefa.com/




    Most of them are ok i guess, but wth is Ramos doing there? He is always there it seems, regardless of his play, which was awful in 2015. The odd man out for me it seems. Pogba i dont watch enough, was he really that good? James doesnt deserve to be there, Ronaldo is arguable too.

    Leeeel at Ramos and Cristiano for team of the year 2015

    It's voted by the fans though no surprise mister a billion goals against Malmoe is in there, and Ramos .. well, he's a real magician making RM fans believe he's quality.
    The Internet is full of tribute videos with some version of the title "Messi doesn't dive" a trait rare in a sport where players roll around on the ground like gunshot victims when an opponent so much as breathes on them.

    Theories abound about why Messi won't fall, about his character or his respect for the game, but I think it's much simpler. If he dives, he loses the ball.

    Ramos and James don't deserve to be there. Suarez had a better year than Neymar and Ronaldo, so should be there at the expense of one of them. Pogba was good, but I think Juve fans generally agree that Marchisio was their best midfielder. Busquets should be there anyway, this team doesn't even have a defensive midfielder.

    Meh, the only way I'd be satisfied is if it was the whole Barca squad there. As it isn't, no point in getting riled up.

    I'd personally throw out Alaba,Ramos & Pogba. Out of the whole team,the 2 of them (Ramos and Pogba) are there because of hype. This is Ronaldo's 10th appearance in TOTY and definitely his shakiest one. Suarez is breathing down his neck.

    DM? Nah, this is just a way to try to get as many flashy attacker into a team as they can. Well, if they went for 4-2-4(rafas favorite formation) they could have gotten even more.

    It's voted by the public, and the public is stupid.

    What's more worrying is, the ideal 11 of Zidane .. with 4 forwards and only Modric/Touré behind them

    worrying for us or for him ?
    Players typically have weird "favorite" 11, and keep in mind Zidane is a living advertisement, though I think you know that. A sponsor's dream, give him money and he'll say anything as long as it doesn't compromise his other 2875 personal sponsoring deals. In some way him coaching a major club is incredibly out of character.

    Back to the UEFA team... @Morten I do know that the players vote. But UEFA never asked them to choose a DM for the DM positions. Just vote for your best midfielders, and the top 3 make the team. Very smart.

    I actually think his choices are very valid.

    Buffon definitely ahead of Neuer, although I'd have ter Stegen up there too.

    Bonucci could definitely replace Ramos, so could Mascherano too though, and Boateng despite of falling on his ass against Messi. Can argue for all three, but not Ramos who sucked big time last season.

    Marchisio ahead of Pogba is legit too.

    Rakitic should be there instead of James as well as that.
    Coutinho Aleñá
    Busquets
