    Bris Vegas got a reaction from ViewsFromTheMiddle in Ballon D’Or   
    Ronaldo has David Haye syndrome. To be the best, you have to be the best mentality.
    You can’t admit that somebody else is better at anything. Watch David Haye’s comments about being faster than Usain Bolt!
    In a team game, the Ballon D’Or just fuels the inflated egos of players such as Ronaldo who only plays for himself.
    The guy would rather score a hat-trick in a 3-3 draw than see his team win 1-0 without him scoring. That’s just sad.
    Messi has been so much better in almost every aspect of the game for the past five years, yet somehow they keep giving this guy the ‘best player’ award.
    And the most complete player? Messi has better ball control, vision, technique, passing, dribbling, set-pieces, movement and awareness. By far.
    Ronaldo is a striker, Messi is a creator, yet Messi still scores more than him.

    I’m a fan if Guardiola, his teams and the way they play. 
    Derby will always be the only team I genuinely support. ie for life.
    I’m also a big fan of Barca, but that’s mainly due to the likes of Iniesta, Messi and prevously Xavi. Take Messi and Iniesta out of their current team and I don’t really have any affection for their other players.

    Crawford had three fights in 2016, and two in 2017 with the latter unifying all the belts against Indongo. In fairness to him, there aren't many names at 140 and he was clearly a level above the rest.
    I'm looking forward to seeing him at 147.

    Chris Martin unfortunately doesn't seem to fit in with Rowett's style of football. He deserves a better footballing team. If he was still at Fulham they'd be doing much better now.

    Bris Vegas reacted to McLovin in World Cup Draw   
    Have to agree with Bris. Chile are better than Paraguay and Peru but off the field issues combined with other factors meant they didn't qualify. Many of the big South American sides celebrated Chile's failure to qualify, why? Because they know Chile are big threats to them, especially in cup formats. 
    Chile proved they are one of the best by winning the copa Americas. It's rather simplistic to think that winning the league makes you the best team as there are other factors to take into account such as injuries to key players or lack of motivation due to already winning everything. Real Madrid weren't better than Barcelona(who were considered the best team in the world) in 11/12 but they still won the league.

    A shame how Cotto ended his career with a defeat. Similar to Pacquiao, seems to have extended his career unnecessarily and didn’t allow himself to finish it with a win.
    Still, a great fighter who won four world titles at multiple weights.
    Lomachenko vs Rigondeaux is next weekend. Potential fight of the year.

    But how do you judge the quality of a team? Some punch above their weight due to the manager, on the other hand some fall way short of expectations due to the manager.
    Chile should have qualified, hence the moment they failed to the manager stepped down. It wasn’t down to a lack in ability.
    Same for Chelsea two years ago. They evidently weren’t only the tenth best team in the league over a 38-game campaign. They massively underperformed.
    I still see Italy as a top ten side. Finishing runners-up to Spain and unluckily losing to Sweden doesn’t change that.

    Loves the attention. Still, he was deemed one of the best refs around and his personality helped him get there.
    He is right though. English football is a theatre. Everyone always talks about referees even when they don’t need to.
    It’s a culture thing. Refs here get far too much attention so yoy can’t blame one or two for lapping it up.

    They had a poor qualifying campaign, but let’s not forget they’re in the most difficult group with some top quality sides.
    Chile are one of the best teams in the world and they failed to make it.
    It’s a great game for Iceland, and interesting too as they have evidently never faced a South American side in a competitive game before.

    Think you will the correlation between spending and league position, especially such vast sums, in pretty much every top league across Europe. All the best players play for the best clubs.
    Everyone has their opinion, but I just find it incredible how dull United can be considering how much they've spent on that squad.

    The welterweight division is the best in the world, but it's one of the least active. US promotions are rubbish.
    Errol Spence has only fought three times in two years, and it will be eight months since his last fight against Brook when he faces Lamont Peterson in January, another who has only fought once since October 2015.
    Khan is off the radar. Keith Thurman has no fights planned since facing Danny Garcia last March, likewise Danny Garcia hasn't fought since March nor does he have an opponent named. He, also, has only fought 3 times since August 2015.
    Shawn Porter has a decent resume with Brook, Thurman, Broner and Berto as 4 of his last 6 opponents. But his recent win against Adrian Granados came 7 months after the Berto fight and it will probably be another 7 months until he fights again.
    The whole set-up in the US is terrible.

    I genuinely feel sorry for you, and other Ipswich fans. I remember the Burley and Joe Royle days, you played some fabulous stuff.
    Nowadays Ipswich are awful to watch, so boring, but unfortunately for you McCarthy finds a way to get results it would make sacking him seem harsh.
    Isn’t it something like 17 straight years in the Championship for you? McCarthy could stay there until the day he dies and you will still be plodding along, playing an unfavorable style of football and being rooted to midtable with the odd hope of a playoff push.
