Who should win the Ballon D'Or?

If the Ballon d'Or was taken literally, a Mr Beckham would win every time.

But sadly Goldenballs hasn't made the list for FIFA's top player this year; others have though, with the 23 nominees including Manchester City and Italy's 'Super' Mario Balotelli. If it was the Ballon d'Crazy, then the bookies would have stopped taking bets by now.

The Premier League provides six of the names, La Liga gives 12, as well as supplying the two favourites in Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi - but who do you think deserves to scoop the top prize when it's awarded on January 7 next year? Cast your vote below...
