Vidal is 57. Marchisio isn't on there, but Mayuka is. Juventus should sell Marchisio and buy Mayuka.

Liverpool dropped the ball. The 8m on Borini and 12m on Sturridge could have been spent on a 20m bid for Mayuka last summer. Would have been top of the table by now.

Aubemayang above Lewandowski is a joke.

Mascherano, Pique, Kompany (based on this year) being above Hummels is a joke, less so for Kompany. That's ignoring all the none CB's above him.

So many other stupid ones as well.

Busquets is definitely a top 15 player for me. The fact he plays in the same team as Messi, Xavi and Iniesta doesn't help his case.

There are few players with his size and ball-winning ability that are as technically gifted.

We asked each of our 11-strong panel (for the full list, scroll down) to give us their top 30 active players in the world and rank them in order of preference. Once the lists were submitted, players were scored on their ranking by each panellist: a No1 choice allocated 30pts, No2 29pts and so on down to selection No30, given one point. In a four-part series in print and online we will reveal the results, culminating in the Guardian's choice of the world's top 10 footballers on Christmas Eve.

Think that means at least one person had to have Mayuka on their list, or one person had him really, really high.

I really just wanna see Michael Cox's list. That would probably be the most accurate IMO. Also Jonathan Wilson, he is also a pretty good writer/pretty intelligent

I agree that Cesc isn't high enough. Sagna probably should be somewhere in that 75-100 area, but it's hard to really include everyone.

Neuer is the best goalie in the land.

Happy to see HBA in there. Shame Yohan Cabaye wasn't somewhere on the list as well, based on last year he definitely deserved it.

These lists are so fickle.
