World player of the YEAR, not Season, Mohamed.
Incorrect.

"Year" here implies the footballing year, i.e season. How else can they come up with a shortlist in early December? My understanding is that voting procedures begin in October, considering that every national organization which is a member of FIFA votes for the award.

The award is for the best player during the footballing calender year, in this case 2007-2008.

The best player of the last 12 month will be crowned as WPOY!

Latin players own this game period.
Norther Europeans, Africans and Slavs are just passengers.

Have a itchy feeling that they will give it to CRonaldo no matter the fact that starting from the start of June, that is more than 6 months ago, the biggest argument for him winning it is the 42 goals he scored i dont know when. For 6 months he has been nowhere near the form of WPOTY should be.

Nothing against him winning it, just Messi is simply better.

Then how can they come up with a shortlist in the first week of December?

December is part of 2008, no?
those who didn't impress till december wouldn't make the list in january either.

Why is Kaka on the list? Does the last year winner automatically gets a place in the shortlist, because he definitely doesn't deserve a place.

Messi should win this trophy, but I think it's going to be Ronaldo just because of last season.

I don't think Messi will go home crying though, we all know who's the best player.

Yes, if CRon wins this year he will qualify for next year shortlist :thumbsup:

Thats about the best reason I can come up with for Kaka's addition to the list instead of Zlatan
