No brainer really...

Hutchinson - Highest level. Playing in Europa league. Regarded as key player for table topping Besiktas. Standout preformance against Arsenal in CL qualifying. Gained accolades from Arsene Wenger. Most influential midfielder for CMNT.

Johnson - Captian of solid Portland Timbers team that narrowly missed out on playoffs. Played in a 3rd MLS All-star game. Led all Canadians with in MLS in goals, assists, and maybe minutes despite injury. A distant second to Atiba for lack of CMNT appearnces (is his eligibily in question as a result?)

Edgar - played a (very) limited role in Burnley's run to EPL promotion. Key piece in Birmingham City's defence until recently. Emerged as the most dependable CB for the CMNT. Fantastic strike in 3-1 friendly win over Jamaica.

If Johnson isn't eligible (which I suspect), Edgar gets pushed up to second, and third becomes...

Borjan - Made Champions League debut against Liverpool, drawing positive reviews despite injury time blunder. Multiple sublime outings in goal for CMNT. Lack of league minutes in top flight Bulgaria and Turkey hurt his standing.

1) Hutch - Exploits for Besiktas, that is all... but if you need more, NT appearances as well

2) Edgar - Regular contributor for both club & country

3) Borjan - Unreal NT performances


Special mention:

Osorio - based on club appearances, but in time will contribute to NT soon

Hmm.  Bit tricky a-gin this year as much Floro's fault as anyones.


Hutch or Edgar at 1 and 2 for sure, but 3rd is a puzzler, least to my mind.  Have to go back throught the calender and see who sticks out most over the year.  Stay tuned.

Be interested in where Hutch stands on top players from CONCACAF:  maybe big soccer has a thread.  but he has to be...top 5?


1. Hutch

2. Edgar

3. Teibert


As for the women - I'm waiting for the day that we can vote for anyone besides Sinclair....
