IMO.

Best midfielder should not have been Lampard, should have been Ronaldo.
Best forward should have been Luca Toni.

ronaldo was a forward because he played most games as a lone striker with rooney on the wings !
didn't you guys watch the matches?
Fail. He played against Barca up front and away in Rome, majority were in midfield.

Mm, not most matches. Both the games against Barcelona, he played as a lone forward with Carlos Tevez behind. Other than that, I can't think when he played alone up top.

Messi and Ronaldo in forward positions? Weird.

Ferdinand should easily have won the best defender. JT would never have restricted the Barcelona attack like he did.

Good English lad he is though, missing winning penalties and spitting at players, well done :yy:

TBH only 1 Chelsea player could have won something, and that was Cech. Messi should have been in the midfielder category and snatched it from Lamps, then again so could have Ronaldo. Either way he got the MVP award.

Funny that the losers got more awards than the winners :rofl:

How do you know what Rooney's true position is?

I don't think even SAF or Fabio Capello do tbh. In fact, SAF admitted he doesn't. He plays best when he's given unlimited freedom and roams all around the field rather than in a true position.

And Rooney played more as a wing forward and sometimes striker rather than as a left sided midfielder.

As incompetent as UEFA are, they got this one right (i.e. classing Ronaldo as a striker)
Bad diction on my part. Rooney's recognised position at the mo is up top and over the course of the game he tends to drop off and play right behind the striker. Whenever Ronaldo played up (Just Roma & Barca away iirc) front Fergie pushed Rooney to play on the left of midfield and he did more defending then attacking (thus why Fergie said he was always willing to sacrifice himself for the team) so I wouldn't really have classed him as a wing forward.

Over the course of the CL Ronaldo played most matches on the right wing and Rooney up front for most but from the knockout stages both didn't really have a set position so it doesn't make sense for me for UEFA to class Ronaldo and Rooney as forwards. Either both in their recognised positions or Ronaldo as a forward and Rooney not.

Fair enough. I guess it's going to be difficult for them and it's ultimately going to be a bit subjective. Some strikers, such as Dirk Kuyt for the first half of last season, spend more time in their own half despite being deployed as a striker, yet you wouldn't say he's a defender. Well, RobbieC would, but that's a special case :teeth:

I shall agree with you on Fletcher and O'Shea, even though I am a United fan myself.

But, Wes Brown has improved beyond recognition over the past two seasons and, as such, cannot be put in the same group as Fletcher and O'Shea.

Though, I must say Fletcher has saved United's backsides on a number of occasions, although he has often dug a huge hole for United too so I guess that evens things out.

As regards to O'Shea, I used to like him when he first came about but now he's used in midfield I think he's a load of crap (apart from that goal in injury time against Liverpool ).

What happened here? Did Roman bribe these awards?

Rio or Vida should have been a shoe in for Defender of the year, no chelsea fan could doubt that. Lampard was a complete average player this year. Cech, fair enough.

In Summary: Terry fell over - Award
Lampard's mum died - Award

Ronaldo - 1 Down, 2 to go.

Probably because of the self-imposed handicap of having a clueless manager. It's like going to a comprehensive school with a 10% rate of A-C at 'A' levels and achieving ABB compared to another who went to a fee paying school with a 95% rate and achieving AAAA.

I think Lampard's award might have been given an extra boost because his mum died. It's a well known fact that people's reputation are strengthened if they die or someone close to them does.

Sorry I don't buy that. Van der Sar has been more vital for us in the champions league for us last season. Notably against Sporting Lisbon, Roma, Barca, Chelsea (in the final).

Personally I don't think that the Chelsea players didn't deserve any of these awards. Ronaldo the only deserved wwinner here.
I would've given them to;
Casillas - Goalkeeper
Ferdinand - Defender
Fabregas - Midfielder
Ronaldo - Foward
My choices exactly. Not sure about Ronaldo being a forward though....

Nominations for the forwards... Drogba? Rooney? wtf

God I hate Terry. Average player earning top money. Reminds me of a van-driving union leader. Talentless mouthy ****.

Lampard midfielder of the year? Essien did more than him. If he went to Inter they'd hate him.
