The Big Question

Who should be crowned Fifa World Player of the Year?

Any chance of a repeat?

Cristiano Ronaldo 

Now down to a shortlist of five – Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Kaka, Andres Iniesta, and Xavi – the Fifa World Player of the Year is going to be unveiled to a cooing public on December 21st. Just in time for Crimbo.

Of course, having recently snagged the Ballon d’Or, the big money should go on Messi, but it’s not entirely in the bag just yet. According to the stats, only six of the last ten winners have managed to do the Fifa and Ballon double.

Begging the question, who would YOU pick as the Fifa World Player of the Year?

Let us know with a vote and a comment.

    Kaka having 0 votes is just plain sad, so Im voting for him to make him feel better. If I win, I will share it with him.

    Its pathetic enough that Kaka even made the shortlist. Last year, was his worst at AC Milan and he hasn’t done anything scintillating this year either at AC Milan or Real Madrid. I’d have rather seen John Terry or Wayne Rooney or Didier Drogba in his place.

    You’ve got to be kidding me!! Done nothing? He’s scored 16goals in the most defensive league in the world last year with AC Milan, AS A MIDFIELDER!!! Sure he’s not been scintillating with Madrid but he’s good when he’s played with CR9. And something called Confederations Cup 2009 Golden Ball Winner. He was also Milan’s best player last year helping them back the Champions League.
    @Ivich Get up Premier League boy there are other Leagues in the World too that matter.

    Iniesta ran the show for the both the UCL and Euro champs. Picking Messi or Poof-naldo reduces this to a pageant.

    The premier league domination is over. That’s all that matters.

    Let’s, for the sake of the English media, hope this continues for a long, long time.
