Fact. Lehmann is 10. LOL.
in fact he's been as good as Buffon who is 2nd is he not?
I think he deserved it. Lehmann had a good season, so 10 is probably about right, I mean it wasn't a particularly vintage year.
Where's Titus Bramble?
that he sorely requires
was the highest rated english player, in 17th.
Gerrard had a much better world cup than Lumpard. And a better Premiership season. Bloody French journalists..
Lampard had a shit season. Did they not watch the FA Cup final?? Gerrard's performance there? He should have been in the top 10. He hardly had a bad season.
in it just for the world cup?
Can they actually count his Serie A performances?
And seeing as Juve let in sod all goals last season, he did quite well really.
why would his serie A games not count?
and officially their results don't count
true, but as this is voted for by journalists and not FIFA or UEFA they can make up their own rules.
To score 16 goals from central midfield is quite an achievement. He was the second highest English goalscorer, just two goals behind Darren Bent
I know goals aren't everything, but he also did kinda win the Premiership title too
had a better premiership season.
Gerrard was better in Europe and the WC
and although Gerrard actually scored at the World Cup, don't get confused that he was any better than the rest of the shower.
You can't not have Luca Toni
ridiculed by Carew last week.
How a player so dirty can be footballer of the year ?
he is a great defender.
consist of knocking some senseless by putting your elbow in his jaw.
That's why he was bad against Carew. Carew was too big to hit his jaw...
all last season.
I don't like Carew. He isn't very good.
But he plays dirty.
Shouldn't have won any award.
he should have.
He was that good last season.
We are talking about player of the year.
Should be better than good.
he was the best defender last season
and probably the best player
Cris is 100 x better. And he isn't the only one.
that is crap.
Cris is nowhere near as good as Cannavaro
Cannavar always has been overrated.
But maybe that's just me...
it is just you.
I'm sorry. It seems rude but that ^ was one of the more ridiculous statements on this thread.
I do think that a player that uses intimidation and vice isn't a great player.
He has enough qualities to play otherwise.
But would this qualities have been enough to make the career he has made ?
So he isn't good enough.
Cannavaro played in an awesome Juve defence and also won the World Cup. That's a pretty good season. They say you judge a player on what he's won blah blah blah
But apparently I am...
From Real's comeback ?
So so underrated.
I think the list is really poor this year.
Eto'o is far too low ! Zidane far too high !
And Ribery 13 ! I like the guy, but that's stupid !
