    I think that's a reasonable guess

    Hopefully Xaviesta are the other two.

    Would like to see Xavi win it for his contribution to football. He deserves an individual award.

    Awful award.
    Everyone knows that Messi already won it.

    i'm all for Xavi getting due recognition, so perhaps there should be a new 'contribution to football' award like you all say.

    however, as far any award for best footballer goes, you can't argue against messi.

    contribution to football as in 'Life Time Achievement' award? I'm all for it. Better than the likes of Giggs winning 'Player Of The Year' award just for the sake of winning something FFS

    Xavi should have won it for 2010 but this year he doesn't deserve to win it,this isn't some life time achievement award,it's the baloon d or and Messi has been the best player in 2011,Iniesta should be close as well.

    Alexis is also on the shortlist. So that's 1/5th of the shortlist as Barca players

    Puyi's also in the list despite being injured for most of the season?
    -Cave Johnson. we're done here.

    Remember that one time that Christopher Nolan decided to make movies? That was the best day ever.

    Top 3 will probably be Messi, Xavi, Ronaldo. With the same result as in "Best European Player 2011" award:

    1. Messi
    2. Xavi
    3. Ronaldo

    Maybe there is a bit of a chance that Xavi could win it though because the jury could think the same as many football fans: "Xavi needs an individual award." Making up for last year where maybe Xavi should have won it instead of Messi.

    Ronaldo should only win the 'Best penalty kick taker' award. The first 3 still has to be Messi, Iniesta, Xavi just like last year.
