My 26-man shortlist (in no particular order):
Radu (but **** him)
Mutu (more for jokes, but he did really surprise me with his attitude and results in the ISL)
My votes (subject to change before the 30th):
1) Costel Pantilimon
2) Florin Andone
3) Ciprian Tatarusanu
As much as I wanted to include Budescu, Stanciu, and Alibec, the latter missed a lot of games at the start of 2015, and they all play in Liga I.. though of course contributed a lot in Europe and with the NT (except Stanciu, and Alibec was marginally there.. Budescu only recently). Matei has been excellent in a superior league especially given his age, but had a poor first half of 2015 statistically.
Budescu had some off moments in the year but mostly has been a beast technically and in getting involved in the goals. He also probably secured qualification with his pseudogol vs the Faroes since we'd have probably lost confidence if he hadn't opened the scoring like that
Andone of course has been brilliant with his weak team for the Primera, now they are doing very well in the Segunda with him among the top scorers.. and love his work ethic, national team included.
Stanciu, F. Tanase, Rat, and Chiriches also shouts in it after that. Stanciu has been unbelievable for Steaua tbh, you could very well argue that he should be placed second or third in this.
Reason for Dragomir: He's the only Romanian player without a blemish on his record in the past year. He also dominated for the youth NT's.
