As others have said, so many to pick from.

Personally Id like it to go to one of our Olympians such as Kenny or Trott or Whitlock.

However, you can make a compelling case to give it to Murray.

Hamilton will be there or there abouts again as after a poor start he may well win another world championship, though Id rather it went to less of a household name.

I cant see mens cricket or football doing too well.

Has to be Froome if goes on to win the Vuelta. Two grand tour wins in a year, an Olympic bronze in the time trial and 12th in a brutal road race.

Looking around I don't see what surpasses that, though Murray deserves recognition as well.

People might not vote for Murray purely on the basis that he has already won it twice, but should/does it work like that?

It would seem incredibly harsh not to give the award to a whole number of candidates, but Murray's achievements still are the most impressive, I would say.

At a minimum this year, he has won Wimbledon and the Olympics, and reached the finals in Melbourne and Paris. There is still the US Open, the Davis Cup and the Tour Finals to come.

If he added one, two or all three of those to this year's achievements (which is very much doable on current form), how could he not win it?

Some years just have too many candidates....same as 2012. Not sure if anyone has mentioned Johnny Brownlee either - retaining a triathlon title!

Bolt is currently a shoe in for overseas I think, but as for us, as Pardew says, Murray could be on the cusp of something truly incredible, but then so is Chris Froome, so were Jason Kenny, Laura Trott, Mo Farah - they achieved it, so did Danny Willett, so, probably will Lewus Hamilton, 4 times world champion maybe.

Spectacular year really.

so long as it's not Lewis Hamilton I don't really mind. They're all worthy candidates.

It's a bloody hard choice looking at the suggestions so far.

Team of the year could well be Team GB, just as a complete cop out so they can give the individual award to someone else.

Overseas award will almost certainly be Bolt again.

Team GB won team award in 2012

Wiggins won the individual title, Jessica Ennis was runner-up and Andy Murray third.

In 2008, Lewis Hamilton won his first World Championship. He came 2nd in the voting to Chris Hoy, who achieved in the Beijing Olympics exactly what Jason Kenny did this year. 3 Golds, 3 different disciplines.

I mistakenly took that to be Millwall initially. However, sentiments would be the same anyway.

Clearly Murray is going to win this. The World Number 1 position has pretty much nailed it.

It could be a few people but I think because Murray getting Number 1 has just happened, he will get extra votes.
