It's that time of year again, dear readers.
Time to vote for the 2008 BBC African Player of the Year!
This year's candidates are ...
Mohamed Aboutrika (Egypt, Al Ahly)
Emmanuel Adebayor (Togo, Arsenal)
Didier Drogba (Ivory Coast, Chelsea)
Samuel Eto'o (Cameroon, Barcelona)
Amr Zaki (Egypt, Wigan)
The BBC canvassed football experts across Africa to compile the shortlist.
Last year's winner was Emmanuel Adebayor of Arsenal and Togo, who used the award to launch his so-called 'Tour of Hope' back to his home country.
Previous BBC African Footballers of the Year include Michael Essien, Jay-Jay Okocha and El-Hadji Diouf.
The award is decided by the fans, so get yourself to the link and get voting!
You can vote for your choice until January 9 and the winner will be announced a week later.
MY POV: For my money, Aboutrika is the player of the year. 4 goals in the 2008 Cup of Nations coupled with an African Champions League trophy with club team Al Ahly wraps up the award for him ... let's see what the fans think!
