One common theme, though, was tha’t all but two of the 10 leaders won silverware in the pa’st 12 months, be it at club or international level. Wh’ich is kind of what we wanted voters to think about: Pu’t reputation to one side and focus instead on a “what h’ave you done for me lately?” approach, with the ye’ar’s top performers getting their due.

Once again, there is large-sc’ale turnover of names, with 41 new entries (compared to 4’7 in 2020 and 43 in 2019). Meanwhile, there are 28 natio’nalities, with 26 clubs represented, plus three intern’ational teams.

As for the dominant competi’tions, the Premier League leads the way with 41 represe’ntatives, followed by La_Liga (21), Se_rie A (14), Bundes_liga (10) and Li_gue 1 (10).
