WTF is the problem with those two awards?! Both of them given to Messi every year!!!!

I didn't care about those awards before because none of my players deserved any of them until 2013, Even though its my 4th season now with Chelsea and in the last 3 seasons I've managed to win:

Community Shield: 2010,2012
English Premiere League: 2011,2012
European Champions Cup: 2011,2012,2013
European Super Cup: 2011,2012,2013
Club World Cup Championship: 2011,2012,2013

None of my players deserved any of the two awards during 2011,2012 but not 2013 because Aguero deserved the two awards.
Check this: (Take into consideration that Barcelona were trophyless in 2013)

avg rating dude, thats all...
That's why it sucks
not really, concidering that the avg rating includes everything a player does, not just goals and assists, it's kinda fool proof...
I have already started a "blog" based on that issue though I didn't got many answers.

I didn't mention Messi but in fact he managed to win about 7 golden ball in his career, which is completely surreal. Seems that everything he does is emphasized to God status. Most of the years he got below the 20 league goals/assists and Spanish title was almost equally divided between Real Madrid and Barcelona. Even though those numbers aren't very impressive his average rating never got below 8.00 (with his career overall totaling 8.10 average rating). Can't understand this. I know there are other things like passing and shots on goal percentage but even those continue not to impress that much.

Other players like Aguero, C. Ronaldo or Rooney might achieved more goals or assists in some year but their career overall average rating is at most 7.80 even though they won many trophies.
I must say Aguero has been overrated in every recent FM considering his real life rating.
