Interesting nomination.... any comments?

Seems like the all german Champions Leauge final last season had huge impact on it... do you agree with that?

Pretty suprising that just two players of Barcelona made it into this list ...

Not a single english player was nominated. (!)

League strength has nothing to do with this selection process obviously!

Thomas Muller ffs! Someone tried to tell me CHampions league has nothing to do with the voting!
How the hell is this player on the list ffs ,world class my ass!

No Ashley Cole, really ? But we seee Hummels ,Luis and Lichsteiner what a joke!

Ozil :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Matic ,Matuidi, Schweinsteiger are you kidding me?????????

Martinez over Suarez ,theres your league bias right there in a nutshell!

PATHETIC!

Müller was a big part of the reason bayern won the treble and he has played well this season. He scored plenty of goals in big games which is a big part of your criteria for a top player specnur

he's right specnur... Müller has a very unconventionally playing style, but he is one of the most consistent players I know...
