Just looking at our guys.

How is VVD so high when he missed most of 2021 with injury? World class player of course but in there on the back of his name rather than games played.

Jota behind Firmino for 2021? Not a chance.

Alisson should be in the top 50, not the bottom 50.

Fabinho is way too low as well given how some of those ahead of him have performed in 2021.

Luke Shaw is not even the 78th best player in England.

He's not even the 78th best left back at United

Going to assume that Shaw's inclusion is based solely on the couple of impressive games he had at the Euros.

Fuck knows.

I'd offer every game I have ever seen him play as evidence he is not top 100 players.

Will be interesting to see how inflated both the English Harry's are in this list.

Kane is 15th on the list.

Absurdly high for a player who essentially down tools for his club team from August until the middle of November

Does this mean Harry Maguire is top ten or that he’s not featured…

I'm convinced they've given a list of 1,000 footballers to non fans and they've picked the rankings based on names ala Grand National horse selection

A fairly comprehensive explanation as to how they compile the list

https://www.theguardian.com/football...the-world-2021

After seeing some of the names on the list I'm more inclined to believe your option is more viable

I'd say the top ten will be rounded out with Mbappe, Haaland, Benzema, De Bruyne, Jorginho and McGuire

What the utter fuck is peoples obsession with Jorginho?? He takes a decent penalty and can pass the ball sideways to a higher than average standard.

Not even worth going into the rest really. Waste of time discussing

Fake Ronnie and Messi will probably still be on these lists 3 years after their retire just on name alone.

I think it's the token attempt to make it look like they actually watched some football in the last year. Italy won the Euros so putting him forward represents that.in the hope that everyone will ignore all the BS in the rest of the list
