    so 4 English men, 7.5 Brasilian
    6 from Real Madrid, 5 from AC Milan, 4 from Chelsea and 3 from Man Utd :)

    Men's shortlist:
    • Adriano (Inter, Brazil)
    • Michael Ballack (Bayern Munich, Germany)
    • David Beckham (Real Madrid, England)
    • Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus, Italy)
    • Cafu (AC Milan, Brazil)
    • Cristiano Ronaldo (Man Utd, Portugal)
    • Deco (Barcelona, Portugal)
    • Didier Drogba (Chelsea, Ivory Coast)
    • Michael Essien (Chelsea, Ghana)
    • Samuel Eto'o (Barcelona, Cameroon)
    • Steven Gerrard (Liverpool, England)
    • Thierry Henry (Arsenal, France)
    • Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Juventus, Sweden)
    • Kaka (AC Milan, Brazil)
    • Frank Lampard (Chelsea, England)
    • Paolo Maldini (AC Milan, Italy)
    • Pavel Nedved (Juventus, Czech Republic)
    • Alessandro Nesta (AC Milan, Italy)
    • Jay-Jay Okocha (Bolton, Nigeria)
    • Raul (Real Madrid, Spain)
    • Juan Roman Riquelme (Villarreal, Argentina)
    • Arjen Robben (Chelsea, Holland)
    • Roberto Carlos (Real Madrid, Brazil)
    • Robinho (Real Madrid, Brazil)
    • Ronaldinho (Barcelona, Brazil)
    • Ronaldo (Real Madrid, Brazil)
    • Wayne Rooney (Man Utd, England)
    • Andriy Shevchenko (AC Milan, Ukraine)
    • Ruud van Nistelrooy (Man Utd, Holland)
    • Zidane Zinedine (Real Madrid, France)

    I think Gerrard, Shevchenko and Ronaldinho/Zidane will be in...can't really decide between dinho and Zidane...

    Gerrard from what he did with Liverpool and to the Champions League...so maybe not win, but be in top 3
    Shevchenko from how he brought Ukraine into their first World Cup
    Ronaldinho cause he helped Barca win after a long drought! and he did great in the Confederations Cup (so did Adriano, but don't like him that much)
    Zidane from what he did in helping France regain qualification in the World Cup!

    Maldini, also due to history. Its his last year, after 21 years of professional football, being a regular at 16.

    Why Maldini, how long his career has lasted should have nothing to do with it, it's not a sentimentality constest?

    Ronaldinho for me.

    Point taken, and looking at that list some of the contenders are baffling.

    Drogba - average 1st season at best.
    Okocha - eh?
    Raul - worst season in his career last term!

    Where's Terry?

    This is usually a popularity contest, and sometimes doesn't have much to do with actual achievment.

    Real Madrid players are only there because of popularity. Can't understand why raul, beckham and zidane are there when they played crap last year. On the other hand, I can't understand why Xavi is not there, being one of the best and finest midfielders in the world and last year he was amazing and more important for barcelona than Ronaldinho. But hey, he doesn't sell shirts.

    My votes (in no particular order. I'm unable to choose only 3)

    Eto'o (for being the key player in barcelona)
    Xavi (for being the most classy midfielder)
    Terry (best defender in europe right now)
    Lampard (the strongest midfielder, far better than Gerrard in my opinion)
    Shevchenko (the best forward)
    Casillas (he's always the best keeper)

    ^ And Terry wasn't? Makelele? Duff? Xavi? Puyol?

    Zidane was good in some parts? Damn than what to think of Figo, the substitute who was the only one playing well for Real...

    Call mea jackarse but what has zidane done in the past two years to deserve the award? I think Zlatan Ibrahimovic deserves it as the swede has proved all doubters wrong and is living up to his comparison to Marco Van Basten.

    Flexy - Zlatan imo does not deserve it. he hasnt even gotten a goal this season, and has been suspended multiple times for dirty fouls. Hes a cheeky player, and likes getting in trouble.

    Even Lucarelli deserves it more than him.
