Gnohere, Tandia, Salomao, maybe Fortes, Koljic, Ongenda, Camora, Penedo (only L1 player in Russia).

It isn't as clear cut as before, but I think I know who will get my 3 points.

Foreign Player of the Year 2018

1. Gustavo
2. Koljic
3. Gnohere

Tandia, Fortes, Salomao, Ongenda were close to 3. The latter showed some brilliant flashes of ability and some goals but not consistent enough, even just for getting game time.

I'm not kidding here, and I've said it before, if you look deep down in your soul you'll realize that Romanians are master race.

Some of you think these awards of player of the year must be voted at the end of the season and not at the end of the year...Do you want to change it for June next time?

Maybe we can vote player of the year and foreign of the year in June and young player and coach of the year in December.

Give me your opinions.

Yeah I think that makes sense. So you get the full relevant season each time. But then again the calendar year thing is a common tradition. So it’s up to you guys.

Fedele has been really good too since signing, good call @pele10brazil . Meza and Pigliacelli too.

Quite a few not there for the full year but that’s normal of course and probably why you say this @GICA .

I think that's probably best, awards for season rather than calendar year... Easier to see numbers rather than rely on intuition.


Then again, some would just vote just for Craiova players anyway

Loool, be fair man, Koljic is the best foreigner this season (that’s enough for the year for me )! Absolute beast, didnt play last game and we got smashed.. numbers through the roof, way too good for this league. Maybe just Gnohere comparable.

Fedele is up there too for me, big impact from him.

I will very probably vote for Gustavo Vagenin, he was capital for winning the cup.
And he left in June.


Then again, in Romania we can face the same problem voting in June. There are players that leave in the winter break (for example it's possible Gnohere leaves). But the most important months for titles are April, May and June.

Said this ever since Sanmartean won it last time. Seasonal awards make the most sense.

Oh true, of course Gustavo was amazing. Damn it sucks losing such players half way through the year, but it’s normal. We got a good amount for him.

I have to change my vote

IDK, what's clear is that we forget performances from the beginning of the year easily

Still I'd prefer the awards from calendar year, because for NT's for example the season doesn't count.
And also because we can compare with other awards

Romanian PotY and Young PotY and Coach of the Year in December...?

So we'll do it this way:

In June, Liga I Romanian player of the season and Liga I Foreign player of the season.

In December, Romanian player of the year, Young player of the year and Coach of the year.
