And the headline read 'Messi leads Ballon d'Or nominations' . Since I'm a big fan of all things 'Messi' {Sorry Dozie :) }, I decided to read the news article and made my 'football loving' friend, JP, analyse the nominees, so that he can re-assure me again that 'Messi' might win it for the 4th time {Sorry, but I think he's a fantastic player..My opinion :) }...
