World Football: Power Ranking the Top 50 Players This Season

Who has been the greatest player in the 2011-2012 season? 

Ranking players is often subject to a high-level of controversy, as there are always fans, players and pundits alike who argue a bit differently—perhaps a certain player should have been included, or such a player does not warrant such a ranking. 

Nevertheless, I have attempted to construct a ranking based solely on this season's performance, and while it is true that the players ranked span several leagues, the task is rendered a little easier. 

Only easier, not free from controversy though. 

A few factors have indeed gone into making this slideshow. The factors are individual worth, contribution to the team and overall season. 

I hope you forgive me that I have only listed out the players from 50 through 21, while I have provided a bit more description for the players that follow afterwards. I have chosen this method based on the personal experiences of myself and others who frequently skip the latter rankings and chose to concentrate on the top 20 or top 10. I apologize if you are slightly disappointed. 

Without further ado, let me present to you the 50 of the best players this season.
