Cristiano Ronaldo Lionel Messi Harry Kane 10 best forwards
Who's the best of them all?

Another year bids us adieu, but as we usher in 2018 with a bang we go back to do what football fans love doing best - ranking things.

This year-end special looks back at the fantastic footballing year we've just witnessed and attempts to rank the 10 best forwards during the calendar year.

If you disagree with the personnel or the ranking, do let us know in the comments section below -

#10 Kylian Mbappe

France v England - International Friendly
He's Teenaged. He's as other-worldly talented as a mutant. But he ain't no turtle

What a year the young Frenchman had.

On this list as much for the quite mind-numbing potential he has displayed, as for his sensational performances, Kylian Mbappe has been magnificent for Monaco and in his new role alongside two of the game's most accomplished forwards (they'll join us in a while down the list) at Paris Saint-Germain.

After cementing his place in the Monaco squad during the earlier part of the year - and tearing apart Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund with ridiculous ease in the process - he's looked perfectly at ease in the posh environs of PSG, and with his ridiculous €166 million fee, in the second half.

It's been a while since someone so young caught the imagination so vividly!
