both drogba and eto'o are worthy winners. i think eto'o is the better player but drogba led marseille to the uefa cup final so he should win this season. next year eto'o will probably win

Drogba ! :star:

You guys have to bear in mind the fact that the Ivory Coast are doing much better than Cameroon in the WCQ campaign. And both countries are located in the same group.

The choice being between Eto'o and Drogba, I choose Drogba mainly for his phenomenal performances with Marseille last season. Although, despite his injuries, he's doing good for Chelsea too. Eto'o was great for Mallorca and is fantastic for Barcelona, but I think the award has to go to Drogba for also winning a title.

May I also add that I consider Drogba a better player than Eto'o.

last year ? you're kidding ?
by the way i think it's a close one
i choose drogba for leading an average marseille to the uefa cup final almost all by himself
right now eto'o is playing the best but drogba has been injuried for some time since september.
