Surely we should get more creditable and world renouned and well respected football journalists like Gabriel Marcotti,Sid Lowe,Raphael Hoenigstein,Guilem Ballage,Martin Ainstein. How much football do the guys who pick actually get to watch??

Do FIFA make sure that the coverage of football in terms of EPL,La Liga,Serie A,Bundesliga etc are existant within each country and free of bias,broadcaster preferance etc? No doubt Messi deserves it,but in 20 years time when its a closer vote,with a 5 way debate on who the best is,with all 5 guys each playing in a different league,this system could be flawed.
