Great list Teflon...
but true...

Henry has to win it hands down but there is a few getting close on that list. Rooney and Ronaldo will be much closer after this season is finished...

I can see your thinking, he is a brilliant player. I just think Henry is so big right now, it's the perfect time both playing and PR wise to have him win the award from Zidane.
