1. Razvan Marin
2. Alexandru Mitrita
3. Andrei Radu
Tatarusanu, Andone, Stanciu, Tucudean were all close in my mind too.
Marin is simply our best player for club and among the most important in the national team, and also one of our only who consistently plays at a decently high level and in a difficult position. High IQ player.
Mitrita has had a mostly fire year with Craiova, some explosive games this season especially, and some very nice moments with the national team.
I really wanted to get Andrei Radu in this top 3 somehow for his amazing performances with Avellino, Genoa, and the U21s in very high pressure and high level games. At such a young age, despite just missing on the cut off for Young Player of the Year, he still deserves a chance here for all heís done already. Exciting talent and a natural leader.
Florin Andone would have easily made the podium for me if he wasnít injured for so long and didnít have such a poor situation in the NT for so long. Hopefully he fits in the system soon, he still makes the list as he scored in the La Liga and Premier League this year, and has some good performances in general against some very good sides in the two strongest leagues in the world. This is something none of our other players right now can really boast.
Tatarusanu has been a class act for Nantes in Ligue 1 and the NT throughout the year. Very consistent and reliable player, with some amazing stats in Ligue 1 and important saves for the NT. I wanted Radu to edge him out for other reasons, though.
Stanciu had some brilliant games for the national team and key goal scorer and chancer for us. Can change games on the blink of an eye on his day. Shitty that he still plays in the Czech league and seems to not be that active, in terms of numbers at least, but we know his talent and heís done enough to merit a mention for this year at least.
Tucudean, well, who thought heíd be here a couple years ago, Iíll accept his daddyís money and throw his name in here though
In all seriousness, he had an amazing breakout year, not only some amazing numbers in Liga I but also proving important for the NT when called upon, not just once or twice, but actually a reliable enough striker in certain NT matches. Of course, he is not ideal and who we want for the future, but he is a much better option than Keseru for example. Also scored 4 goals in a match against Iasi. Really outperformed what we expected, and to be fair he really is a better player than some might think of him at first.
Congrats to these players on a great year!
And many others Iím sure I forgot to mention lol.
