When it comes to voting for a player to win a specific award, it can be easy to forget about the early months of the season. Events of the last few weeks are fresher in the mind and this can have a direct bearing on who, ultimately, picks up the accolade in question.
But the European Sports Media Team of the Season award is a little different. You see, every month votes are provided by Europe’s most influential publications, such as Spanish newspaper Marca, German publication Kicker and World Soccer from the UK, and then tallied up to create a Team of the Month.
These votes are then carried over, month after month, until the end of the season.
So which European forwards have received the most cumulative votes over the course of the current campaign?
There are, of course, still a few weeks left to play of the season - but here is how things stand right now.
