    There are probably 4-5 players only from Spurs I would pick ahead of him.

    The proper name for awards in football is medals. As in, "show us your...."

    Sick to my back teeth of all these football awards. I've lost count of them there are so many nowadays. The Hollywoodisation of football. Yes, the Bd'O has been around forever, but ffs, enough already.

    Coutinho? This is a joke, right?

    Does it perpuate (the incorrect) belief that players have to play at/be considered by the very biggest/most reknown teams to be considered?

    That high profile failed move to Barca which will still likely happen probably helped him on to the list.

    There's still more players to be added.
    Expect pogba to be on there too, he's been unplayable since arriving back in England :rolleyes:

    Opinions are subjective and all that but what is it about Coutinho? He's a good player, sometimes very good but... what am I missing?

    Compared to De Bruyne, David Silva and Eriksen and he isn't on that level IMO.

    I'd even take Ozil over him even though the latter peaked at Real Madrid and is on the decline.

    Is it because he's Brazilian? I understand the domestic/Liverpool bias but what about those outside of this country?

    I was very surprised to see Dzeko there, had completely forgot he exists. Turns out he's been banging them in for Roma. 8 in 8 this season so far

    If Coutinho is on there and Eriksen isn't there is something wrong.

    Alderweireld and Alli have very legitimate claims to be on that list as well.

    Sadio mane in the shortlist. Still no Eriksen. Pathetic.

    Eriksen is better than both Coutinho and Mane. I don't know what Benzema is doing on the list either, because he's playing for Real I suppose.
