Wasnt even portugals best player when they won the euros.

Disappeared in the CL against the big teams after flatrack bullying some shepherds.

Mediocre stats this year.

I think people are right saying its just a popularity contest now

Because Portugal won Euro 2016.

That's more or less how these things work nowadays.

Because team accomplishment.

Also the award lost it's credibility when Henry didn't win it imo.

Lost any credibility it had when Cannavaro won it just because he showed "passhun" in the World Cup final

Henry was 2004 though, Cannavaro was 2006. Agree though, that was ridiculous at the time.

No idea why Shevchenko got 2004, won the same as Henry but Henry unquestionably had the better season.

You can make a very strong case for him in 2006. Had Arsenal won the Champions League, he'd probably have won it. Had Zidane won the World Cup for France instead of being sent off for headbutting, he'd have won it. Unfortunately it's all about major tournaments nowadays.

Rui Patricio being nominated this year just about sums it up really.

Personally would give it to Vardy. Imagine that.

Yeh I'm not disagreeing about 2006 but your point is ifs and buts. Mine re: 2004 is unquestionable. Henry and Shevchenko both won the league but Henry was part of an undefeated team and outscored Shevchenko by 10 goals. Also won the Golden Boot.

Maybe it was big club bias.

Considering Pavel Nedved won it the year before, I don't think number of goals matters too much.

In this case I think it does because I'm directly comparing two strikers.
