To be very clear here, "RW" is a very loose definition of right midfielders/wingers/forwards. Just choose the best player, this one could go to anyone :ph34r:.

Cuadrado shouldn't be in the running. Who's idea was it to nominate him xD

I don't think Pedro is better than Baggio but voted for him on the basis that Baggio was more of a 90's player.

And oof. Sanchez got screwed. It's easy to forget Alexis was arguably the best player in the Premier League when he was at Arsenal. Now that he's finished he's tarnishing his legacy. He was a genuine top player though. 5th best in the world in his prime.

I actually laughed at Pedro v Baggio. Not that I think Pedro's bad... but the other one's Baggio. Although I associate him more with the 90s than the 00s.

I'm pretty sure Messi'll be the one who wins this overall though. Because it's other players vs. Messi

Pedro during that Barcelona era of dominance was class, seems like people have forgotten because he has been bang average for a couple of seasons now at Chelsea.

Messi has to win this and will. 

How the hell is Shaqiri on this list?!

I think people are just voting for the better player now. No contest between Pedro and Baggio. I'm voting for the one who actually impacted the 21st century though.

Never really seen much of baggio except clips from international tournaments with Italy. I still voted for him though because he was considered world class during his prime.

Can’t believe people are voting Pedro after one half decent 6 month stint at Barcelona, before returning to obscurity at Chelsea.

Only voted for Pedro because Baggio was 33 in 2000.

Scored 45 in 95 for Brescia at that age. Some talent.

Not going to complain too much as I have already done so before on these kinds of votes, but as has already been said, Baggio was a 90's player and was 33 at the start of the year 2000. I guess it's a case of any chance to slip in an Italian player in these votes. The deliberate lack of German players once again in these votes is so apparent.

As for Cuardado, Hulk, Quaresma and Payet what the hell are they doing in this vote? I can think of at least 10 right wingers better than them. I could also think of plenty of better wingers than Shaqiri and Pedro to be honest. I voted for Pedro ahead of Baggio, as a protest vote, simply because Baggio was essentially a 90's player. Other than that, of course Baggio was a better player during his career than Pedro has been.

Oh shit, I ended up complaining quite a bit didn't I?:ph34r:

Is for me. He had that spell in the mid 10’s where he scored a few and was suddenly amazing. Only 3 double digit goal scoring seasons in 8 years in that Barcelona team? Even @Carnivore Chris thinks Baggio was better and he’s the go to guy for Barcelona on here. It’s only my opinion though. For me, Baggio did more in 4 seasons at Brescia than Pedro has managed in his career. Yes he’s been involved in multiple titles and European cups, but his importance has been completely overstated. Again, just an opinion.

Steve McManaman is a better shout than some of these players imo - and he was pretty crap for some of the years of the 00s he played in.

Wait is this serious or part of the Lahm banter?

I don't know if you missed it but there was a thread which was in the General Football section where I basically begged people to nominate whoever they could think of and just said yes to everyone because I wanted 16 for each position. There are ample German/Bundesliga fans on this forum who had the same opportunity to contribute as everyone else yet are genrally the only ones kicking off about it now these threads are going up.

Don’t think it has to do with Germans not voting, more so that it’s common knowledge to include them. And in honesty I think plenty have been rightfully added.

Yes, I must have missed that mate and thanks for explaining how they were nominated. It makes more sense now, as certain people are going to select their particular favourite players and nominate them for the vote. I won't fuss anymore now that has been cleared up. ;) 

Well done with organising all this by the way, I am sure that everyone one on here appreciates the effort that you have put in.

I think you've made it apparent that you don't rate German players and German teams, despite the success they have had over the last 20 years, including this season, where the German clubs are dominating Europe. You agree with the nominations and you agree with the selection of very few Germans throughout the nominations for various positions, because you don't rate German players. It's not necessarily common sense is it, it's your opinion. Which is fine, as you are entitled to it.

By the way, I never nominated any players for these votes, which is my own fault of course. I don't think all the Bundesliga followers did either. I would definitely have had nominated a few more German players if I had seen the option to nominate. Anyway, it doesn't matter and it's just a fun game, which is for people to enjoy.

Well thats because the best Germans are, defenders or midfielders. Forwards was usually their weakest point. Would you include Schurle?

You missed the point anyways. I was saying that Germans would have voted for themselves and not by Germans outright. Just cos I'm Peruvian doesn't mean I'll vote for German Carty as forward! :D
