I say, brilliant list, FIFA, as usual! Beckham or Okocha definitely gets my vote! Their only blunder is not including media-wh0res like Owen.

I cant believe this..!!

Some players are nominated despite having the worst seasons of their lifetime.Others because they are soo good apparentley that all of a sudden they play for a big team...

I am willing to bet that this year the award will be like a lifetime achievement award and not based on the season...Remember those words.

Okocha? :wth: He's been injured for ages it seems. How can he possibly be on that list.

Cafu, Maldini etc. are only their because of their name and what they did in the past. Both are past it nowadays.

DUde FIFA is becoming another victim of overhyped english media, 11 sucky EPL players in that list. The list really os too stupid to comment on. I bet if we were MANU, we would have atleast J.Zanetti, Martins & Cordoba in that list. Looney toones with his 11 goals in last season is on that list. :finger:
