What do you think are this results fair ?
Reidscott (Fiorentina) 4 years ago
Thanks for the list. Yes they are. Top 3 are Barca.... Sounds right to me
Qiang (Kelantan) 4 years ago
Thanks for the info dude but World Player of the Year should be rooney! Why? Apart from goal keeper, he can play anywhere and his works rate were above all his rivals, don't you agree?
Reidscott (Fiorentina) 4 years ago
You have a great sense of humor! Thanks for the laughs man
Rockerr (Liverpool) 4 years ago
Ha ha ha, The best joke I've ever heard. Even Dirk Kuyt can anywhere and has an even higher work rate than Rooney, So will you give the player of the year award to him?
Yogan (Chelsea) 4 years ago
Rooney in every position - Oh, I knew you were joking :S what are you on about? If you come to footytube you should know what you're talking about....

I am happy with the results by the way, Barcelona all along for team of the year
Qiang (Kelantan) 4 years ago
Oh well, rooney can score, create and defence.... How often do you guys see messi or ronaldo dropping down and help their defence? The answer is none, am I right? According to nick webster in foxsports, rooney is the best all round player in the world right now...
Senthil (Chelsea) 4 years ago
Are you comparing with messi? Xavi? Are you serious?
Qiang (Kelantan) 4 years ago
Senthil my dear, yes I'm serious!
Senthil (Chelsea) 4 years ago
That's great to hear that ronaldinho in top of the decade players list! That's good! He should play for world cup, I think he proves himself for the selection, now its on dunga's hand!
Yogan (Chelsea) 4 years ago
Yes, Dunga has control but after seeing this and seeing how he is playing for AC Milan at the moment I think he should pick him, he has really improved. Well said Senthil, I agree with you
Qiang (Kelantan) 4 years ago
He's beyond his best, dunga won't select him...
Rzv36 (Real Madrid) 4 years ago
10 Dominic Adiyiah (Fredrikstad & Ghana) 0. 6 I never heard of him.... Maybe pedro or Muller shoud have taken the 10th place for young player of the year
Incuteration (Everton) 4 years ago
He helped Ghana's under 20 team to win the under-20 cup, and he is the top scorer of the campaign
Reidscott (Fiorentina) 4 years ago
Dude is awesome!.... Future star!
Ciankc (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Yah barca have topped the charts for 3 awards, and ronaldhino is player of the decade. I think tht karim benzema should be the young player of the year. Real madrid need to give him nore playing time (even though he did score an awesome goal against zaragoza)
Adamaus (Manchester United) 4 years ago
Na pato imo for young player of the year, he has been unbelievable
