    Thierry was Robbed last year.

    Ronaldinho will win it.

    Personally I agree. I think Ronaldinho will win it this year as well, he is playing out of this world and can do things with a football i can only dream of.

    Ronaldinho, definitely. Unfortunately I put Henry at third of those three at the moment.

    dont u think the fact Shevchenko is single handedly winning Milan nearly all their games and has scored all of their UCL goals this season
    and scored the winner of the 2003 UCL final and scored a bunch in the tournament as well

    like ive said before i think he will win it and if Barca win La Liga then Ronaldinho gets it next time

    Well Henry's up there again - if Shev gets it then international performances isn't an issue therefore Henry has a good chance, both score goals though Henry may have a better all-round game. Gaucho isn't prolific,yet, but wot can u say...absolute diamond geezer. ;)

    Henry has had a poor international run this year, and is hardly working much magic as of late for us..compared to his top form

    Id LIKE to see Shevchenko win it. I SUSPECT the brazilian will nab it though.

    But Shev's European performances and the fact that he plays for the Ukraine certainly aid his bid in that respect.

    Gaucho will probably win it, but I don't think he deserves it any more than Sheva or Deco who won a trebble and came 2nd in Euro - I think he should have been in the 3 but you can't really complain about this 3 man select. Congrats to Arsenal for having Henry in the running again... top player that guy.

    I was thinking more of how he's played 4 his country ( Henry tends 2 get critisized on the international stage and is used as an argument against receiving the Honcho status).

    I've a sneaky feeling Henry will get the tipperillo becos he's ripped up some trees over the last 3 years and deserves summit.

    I think Ronaldinho will win it. Sheva second, TH14 third.

    Sheva will win it. If you look at his goal total in a VERY low scoring DEFENSIVE minded league, you have to believe that is extremely impressive.

    I love Dinho and of course (THE UNBELIEVABLE....TH14) and will still be thrilled with anyone of them landing this award! But I'm being different and going with Sheva.

    Shevenko has a lot of quality players behind him at AC Milan, Its not just him winning their games.

    Thats wrong, I dont even fallow AC Milan that much but I know that Sedorf and Kaka have scored a couple.

    He took the last penalty shot and scored it., anyone could of did that. And it was Thomasson that saved AC Milan in the dying seconds against Ajax in the CL.

    Serie A was not so DEFENSIVE last year, so that really puts Sheva's goal scoring record into perspective.

    Ronnie deserves the Award, I cant think of one player that has done more for his club this year. He is probibly one of the only players in the world right now that can win a game on his own.

    When this thread first came out, I knew it would be between Sheva, Ronnie, and Henry. Im going to say Henry undeservingly wins this and Ronnie comes in 2nd. Shevchenko will win the Ballon D'Or.

    I think Ronnie wins it, both for his play with Barca, but also because when he plays for Brazil, he plays well, unlike Henry for France, and better than Sheva for Ukraine.

    Henry should have won last year, and will have to wait at least another year. Sheva if he keeps playing like he has in the past 4 months will win next year, but he was absent from a number of Milan games last season.

    I think the selection so far is bullsh!t. This isn't about best striker. It is about best player.
    Why is that, it is always a forward. Puyol is my best player this year. He guided Barca last season almost from relegation to second and they are now leading La Liga!

    Did you miss all of La Liga last year? Ronnie did that.

    I like the three choices because I don't think you can go too wrong.

    Yes they're all attackers, but since the death of the libero most of the most talented players gravitate toward an attacking role sole its only natural that they will stand out.

    I'd pick Ronaldinho but the other two would be excellent choices too. No bizarre finalists this year, thankfully.

    Barca were pure and unmitigated crap until they borrowed Edgar Davids. Ronnie's a great player who did some wonderful things but Barca may have finished in the bottom half of the table if it weren't for Davids.

    You are right! Without solid defense. Ronaldinho wouldn't be a factor. Look at Real Madrid. Good strikers and good midfielders.They even have a better keeper than Barca. But their defense is made of an egg shell.
