Cannavaro was a weird one, wasn't it. I mean, he had always been a top level player but his name only ever made big waves in the 2006 WC. The other italian defenders of the early 2000s - Maldini, Costacurta, Nesta - were a notch above him.

If Italy lost the shootout in that World Cup, Cannavaro probably wouldn't have even made the shortlist.

If he doesn't win it after yesterday's game; I doubt any other keeper will win it.
If he doesn't win it after the game vs Roma; I doubt any other keeper will win it.
Other than Bremen - and Poland - is there a game where he didn't steal the MOTM performance?

agreed ... he only had a utopian month ... that's all... but still he clinched it...
and Sammer won it in '96
ahhh those were the days... how many of you remember them playing? [source]

Real Madrid won the clasico. The award has Ronaldo's name already on it.

So let's say that Ronaldo and Messi are somehow out for the Golden Ball race... :---)

Who do you guys think that should win this award in that case? Neuer? Robben? Müller? Kroos? any other player?


I really think that Neuer should be the man.

Neuer or Robben for me. Both are instrumental for their teams successes. If I would have to really choose, I'd give it to Robben. 20+ years of doing one trick and defenders still fall for it. :wink:

Aside from Ronaldo and Messi, my preference would be 1- Lahm 2- Neuer 3- Robben.

No way a non-Bayern player deserves it more.

Shevshenko said on BT sport that he would vote for Neuer because he's just incredible.

1. Mueller, 2. Robben, 3. Lahm, 4. Neuer, 5. Ramos, 6. Ronaldo, 7. Messi, 8. Suarez , 9. Di Maria, 10. Schweinsteiger

Neuer deserves it, same as any of the 3 ahead of him on my list, but I think it would be a slap in the face to every great goalie of the past if he won it, he wouldn't be the only great GK not to win that price so... Let's not make an exception even this time, just for the sake to make the price look more 'universal', which we're sure it isn't, let's not make a 'Cannavaro'. Cannavaro won a Ballon d'Or and Maldini never did, yeah, really doesn't make sense, and it's unfair.
:? :? :? :? :?

(I think I'm a bit biased with this list, but who isn't, at least I'm not the one who decides anything there, so don't blame me.)
