2003: Adrian Mutu
2004: Adrian Neaga
2005: Mirel Radoi

2014: Lucian Sanmartean

We'll give 3, 2 and 1 point to three different players. Obviously the only requirement is they have to be Romanians (it doesn't matter if they play in Romania or abroad).

In 12 days (30 December), the voting will be closed and I'll count the points of every player. In the case of a tie in the first place, the winner will be the player with more '3 points' votes.

Remember you have 12 days to think about it, no need to vote the first thing in your head.

Same as you guys above, I may change before the deadline. But I'll go with:



Budescu, Marin, Tatarusanu



Baluta, Mitrita, Ionita, Nita, Benzar, and Ganea some notable mentions. Alibec would be there too if he hadn't slumped so terrible this season.



Didn't we also have a Young Player of the Year award in previous years? Lots of good choices there.

Radu Stefan for me. Higher player rating in Serie A than the likes of Franck Kessié, Nicolas Nkoulou, Sami Khedira, Stephan Lichtsteiner, Gianluigi Buffon, João Mário, Nikola Kalinic, Leonardo Bonucci, Lucas Biglia, Gianluigi Donnarumma just to name a few. The only player in the same tier for me is Tatarusanu.

So my ranking will be: 1.Radu Stefan 2.Ciprian Tatarusanu 3.Alexandru Mitriță

Oh, we can pick non romanians that played in Liga I? Then Thereau gets my vote

As usual, it´s a hard choice, and not because of excess of good options

The players abroad were irregular. The ones that stood out were Andone on the first part of the year, and Tatarusanu and lately Marin on the second part. Andone´s status in la Liga is not to be dismissed, as it was a long time since one of our players achieved it. But his drop on the second part was huge, even when he managed some goasl and assists. Plus his performance for the NT is terrible.

Marin only started to perform lately, until november he struggled to start, let alone stand out. He wasn´t great for the NT either

Domestically we have a lot of names, but the question is always the same. How would they do on a higher level? Baluta, Mitrita, Ionita, even Tanase could be considered. But that´s why Budescu is the player of the year IMO. Because in Europe he was in great form, without him Steaua wouldn´t have qualified, for sure. And he was outstanding on most of the few games he had for the NT

It's interesting to see Baluta vs Marin... I'm not sure, Baluta is very regular, Marin had some really good games lately. Both will probably be good NT players for a few years. Baluta didn't really get many chances to play on a high level... I think I will stick to my earlier vote, but I'll follow Virgil, with giving a honorable mention for Baluta.

So far Budescu leads with 17 out of 21 points. Tatarusanu 2nd, with 12 points.
