WF Footballer of the Year (Nominations Thread)
 
With the Ballon D'or announcing a three man shortlist for their illustrious prize, I thought it'd be interesting to see which players have most impressed the members in this section over the past eleven months. The idea here is to nominate ten players (in no particular order) and when someone has reached ten votes (maybe more than or less than depending on the level of response) they will become eligible for the final poll.

If you want to add a sentence or two promoting your choices that's fine, if not then just provide a list.

Ibrahimovic

His 28 goals kept Milan competing with a much better Juventus team in last year's Serie A campaign and took them to the Quarters of the champions League and he has since taken that class to France with PSG. The best strength / skill ratio in the world.

Pirlo

The heartbeat of Juventus undefeated season which he then followed up with an unreal display at the Euros where he made one scintillating pass after another with the effortlessness of someone just kicking a ball around in the park. Balotelli might have played the role of hero in the awesome Italian destruction of Germany but as per usual it was Pirlo busy writing the script.

Messi

To be in the same league of goalscoring as Muller makes you a very special player indeed. When you factor in the Argentine's selflessness it looks even better. The finest talent since Diego.


Ronaldo

An awesome year for Action Man. He finally got the better off the world's best defenders on a regular basis and went close to taking Portugal to a European final.


Casillas

Just an incredible shotstopper. Nothing more needs to be said.

Iniesta

Just when his career couldn't get any better he becomes part of a historic Spanish side that win the Euros with him as their standout star. An absolute joy to watch.

Kompany

The main reason City won the league when you factor in his contribution over the entire premiership season. He has everything you could want from a centre back, strength, speed, vision and a warrior's spirit.

Van Persie

Scored countless brilliant goals for Arsenal and pretty much dragged them to 3rd place in the process. His low point at the Euros was in flopping against Denmark of all teams but he once again looks in leathal form since joining United.

Xavi

The man who makes eveything tick around him. Spain might not know what they've got till he's gone.

Drogba

He missed two penalties in normal play during the African Nations Cup and went missing in the premiership yet it was his vital big match contributions that transformed Chelsea's season from ordinary to extraordinary.

Mario Götze

Franz Beckenbauer himself said that Götze and Marco Reus formed a midfield duo to rival the exploits of Messi/Xavi/Iniesta, and still he keeps on getting better and better.

Messi. He doesn't have many trophies to show in 2012, but I can't look past 80+ goals in a year. Tons of assists too. It's a bit silly, tbh.

Mario Gotze? :kobe

What the fuck have you been smoking? Mario Gotze is no way near the best footballer of the year.

All the ones mentioned in the OP had a better year than Gotze.

As for the the footballer of the year, I think I will go for Messi too.

Messi

Iniesta
Falcao
Ibra
Xavi
RVP
Drogba
Ramos
Victor Wanyama for keeping "The best team ever" in his back pocket.

I don't see the hype about Pirlo, Vidal has been better for Juve and if he was totally missing v Spain.
