Uefa Club Footballer of the Year Nominees

Uefa announced its list of nominees for the Uefa Club Footballer of the Year award - which is dominated by English-based players. All but three of the 20 names on the shortlist ply their trade in the English Premier League.

The criterion for nomination is that a player must have featured in the 2007-08 Champions League. Star players of the top four Premier League clubs are well represented.

The Nominees are:

Goalkeeper of the Year: Manuel Almunia (Arsenal), Petr Cech (Chelsea), Manuel Neuer (Schalke), Pepe Reina (Liverpool), Edwin van der Sar (Manchester United).

My pick: Edwin van der Sar

Defender of the Year: Jamie Carragher (Liverpool), Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United), Carles Puyol (FC Barcelona), John Terry (Chelsea), Nemanja Vidic (Manchester United).

My pick: John Terry

Midfielder of the Year: Michael Essien (Chelsea), Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Paul Scholes (Manchester United).

My pick: Cesc Fabregas

Forward of the Year: Didier Drogba (Chelsea), Lionel Messi (FC Barcelona), Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Fernando Torres (Liverpool).

My pick: Cristiano Ronaldo

The winner in each position will be voted by coaches of the 16 teams who reached the knock-out phase of the 2007-08 Champions League. They will also choose an overall Uefa Club Footballer of the Year.

The winners will be announced on August 28th, at the draw for the group stage of the 2008-09 Champions League in Monaco. So what are your picks?
