    It's based on the calendar year. The 30 man shortlist is picked by the organisers - nothing to do with UEFA/FIFA anymore - and then journalists get to pick their top three players. The winner is announced in December so you should avoid the issues you get with POTY - although many selections will probably be based on who won what back at the end of the season.

    Buffon 4th. Is he better than De Gea who was 20th?

    No surprise on the top three or Ronaldo winning.

    Ramos 6th and best defender. Just shows there's a dearth of decent centrebacks across world football.

    Kane should be higher.

    Lewandowski scores for fun at the best side in a one team league.

    Mbappe and Neymar had incredible ends to last season but have spent the first half of this season at the best club in a second rate league.

    Ramos has consistently let his side down with stupid sendings off.

    Kane is a goal scoring machine with an amazing all round game, a leader on and off the pitch, who has consistently excelled in 2017 for club and country despite both that club and country being visibly handicapped compared to their rivals.

    Who cares about that when it's a popularity contest. ;)
