No Totti.

No Ibrahimovic. icon_eek.gif

I can tell you that alot of people in Sweden have alot to say about that.

As for the list it's really nice to see so many Chelsea players on it.

But honestly. Eto?o? Riquelme?

I haven't heard much from them in a long time. They might as well throw Zidane in there icon_rolleyes.gif

I hope that Drogba or Essien (or Cech, or Lampard, or Terry) wins it but I think that Kaka should win it. Any other decision would be a disgrace. Ronaldo had a great last season but in my oppinion Kaka was better.

I know.

But honestly doesn't this happen every year? The list comes out and several people asks why then heck some are on it and others aren't.

Wasn't it one year when there were very few Chelsea players on it even though some had been great?

I would like to know what makes a player qualify for the list? Do they have to be as skilled as Ibra or Ronaldinho or can someone like Trezeguet who is almost invisible for most of the game but still manages to bag hat tricks also get on that list?

Does it help to be a player who is seen alot in media or perhaps isn't that good but is still loved?

I never fully understood the award system. As much as I like Buffon, I don't think he deserves to be in that list. He played in the Seria B and we haven't heard anything incredible from him. And Tevez didn't play too many games in Europe last year. Can somone please enlighten me?

oh and didn't Kaka won the award?

I think that one of the reasons why you didn't hear much about Buffon isn't because he didn't play well but because of the fact that he played in Serie B. Had he played for any other team than Juventus I would doubt that he would be on that list.

As it is he played really, really well in Serie B.

He is on of the best keepers in the world together with Cech.

I wouldn't say 'one of the best keepers' I would say 'one of the best two' and by that I mean second best.

What I mean is that I think Cech and Buffon are head and shoulders above every other keeper in football at the moment with Cech shading it over Buffon.

Better communicator my bum - he speaks Italian which means he can only chinwag with Pizza makers, ice cream merchants and makers of nice shirts.

Cech speaks English which means he has pen pals all over the world.

I would say Cech is a better shot stopper and much better at closing down angles and coming out on top of one vs one situations. Buffon I would agree commands his defence better and I would say they are probably on a par in terms of dealing with cross balls. Like I said not much to choose between them however Cech definitely shades it as he would never be seen dead wearing that girly pink on his goalkeeping top.

However I would say that Buffon is better than Cech on penalties

I understand that Buffon is great keeper, but I think there are some better one's to be found at the moment. The Ligue Un is crowded with them, the Bundesliga and the Spanish league also have some pretty good shot stoppers that maybe deserved to be on that list instead of Buffon.

While we are on the subject, why didn't Cudici and Hilario tried to keep first keeper roles in other clubs? Cudicini is a top class keeper and Hilario is far better then most of the keepers in the premiership (Lemon icon_lol.gif ). I like them in the Blue, but it is odd that opted for second or third keeper roles when they could have both been starters.

Doesn't that emphasize his manhood along with two days of stumble

Two days of stumble, are you insinuating Buffon got so drunk he woke up wearing woman's clothing and had a two day hangover?

Ozzy Osbourne would be proud!

Money talks when it comes down to it. Could be also they enjoy living in London, and that overshadows the never playing part.

As for Cudicini I think money's not the issue. He loves Chelsea and can accept being backup if it means he can stay. He doesn't object to the money he gets but I don't think that's the reason for him staying. I love having him here but I would actually like to see him be 1st keeper for another team. He deserves it and I bet no supporters will object if he choses to leave.

As for Hilario I'm not sure. He's not a bad keeper and can probably move on to another team. I also think that he will do that soon. He came because of Mourinho I'm sure of that. The prospect of playing for a team like Chelsea was great I bet but it was thanks to JM that he came and I suspect that JM leaving will in the end mean that Hilario leaves too.
