2013 is drawing to a close and that can mean just one thing; a deluge of lazy recap features looking back at the past 12 months because they're much easier to do than coming up with an original idea.
Ahem, anyway, what a year it was. All manner of things happened. Sure, most of it I can't remember but you can bet your bottom dollar it sent Twitter into overdrive. Although, pretty much everything does these days.
There was Fergie's retirement, an all-German Champions League final and the appearance of a 30-foot image of Cristiano Ronaldo in his underwear. And to think, people call him vain....
2013 was the year that Lionel Messi was in hot water with the tax man and for some reason didn't have a bank account in the name of his dog while Gareth Bale became the most expensive player in the history of the game.
Of course in and amongst the grand historical moments were some flashes of brilliance, idiocy and downright confusion.
Luckily we're on hand to look back at the best moments of 2013 with our very own awards ceremony. Who needs the Ballon d'Or eh?
