Norm is Faroe Islands, and they have a thread.

Here is where Finland and Iceland should post, for they both don't have their own thread in the site.

There's an official Icelandic thread, and there have been hundreds of Finnish threads. The most active current Finnish thread is for their national team. :)

This could be a pretty good team. Some of them are not playing on their right positions, but I still think it could work on the pitch.

GK:Niemi
RB:Edman (I know he should be on the left side, but I can´t see any great Rightbacks in any of the Nordic teams)
CB:Hyppia
CB:Mellberg
LB:Riise
CDM:Gravesen
RM: Wilhelmsson
LM:Gronkjaer
CAM: Ljungberg (Has played this position in the national team a couple of times)
ST:Zlatan
ST:Gudjohnsen

Petri Pasanen of Werder Bremen has the quality you were looking for.

And Denmark have some awesome right backs in their league. The two best in Scandinavia are either Dan Anton Johansen or Lars Jacobsen, but I didn't put them so I wouldn't sound so biased :D

Are you drugged out of your mind!!!!!!!!!

Dan :yuck: Arseton :ass: Johannesen would even make it to the line up of any other SAS-liga team then Broendby :thmbdown: :thmbdown: , well these days Laudrup don't even find a spot for him.


Why do you say such thing??????? Is it just cause they are the right back at the two biggest teams in Denmark or why ? :sweeteye:

Well, when i said the Nordic teams i was refering to the national teams. I don´t think two players from the Danish league who are not regulars in the Danish national team, could make a Scandinavian Dream Team.

Oah79// Yeah, I know about Petri Pasanen, but I have to admit that my knowledge of him is limited. But you might be right, maybe he should be in a Scandinavian Dream Team.

No, I actually think that he is very good.

Frederik has posted that he is a good right back, and therefore, I'll believe him.

Pasanen has a played decent season after having moved from Ajax and Portsmouth to Germany. Footballing magazine Kicker ranked Petri as the 14th defender in Bundesliga.

You don't have to play for the NT, you know :rollani:

Thomas Kahlenberg isn't a regular for Denmark, but he is so fvcking amazing when he has a good day. He attracted uinterest from Manchester United...

Yeah sure. I know what you mean. But usually the best players on each position, play in the national team. I don´t know the players you mention however, so I can´t comment on their quality.

But isn´t Helveg the best Danish Rightdefender? He´s still the starter in your national team? I don´t think he is as good as he used to be though. And Östlund who plays rightdefender for Sweden is sometimes a scarry player to watch. A true fighter, but makes some horrible challenges and passes. I don´t think those two players are good enough really. Do you know who is playing for Norway in that position for the moment?

By the way, who do you guys think are the stars of Nordic football at the moment? This of course is not always the same as the best players. First and foremost, I think you have to be somewhat of a regular in a really big club, to be considered an international star.

If I had to pick the Nordic players who could be considered international stars, it would be Zlatan, Ljungberg, Gravesen and Gudjohnsen. Maybe players like Tomasson and Henrik Larsson could be added, but non of them are regulars in their clubs. Larsson is also injured, of course. Hyppiä and Riiise are big players too, but I wouldn´t consider them to be as highly regarded as the first four I mentioned.

When he played for Manchester City, yeah.

Now, Riise is undoubtedly better.

Niclas Jensen is a better fullback than Riise.
Wtf? Jensen has never been better. Riise is along with Zlatan, Tomasson and Gravesen, the best Scandinavian player atm. Why do you think he plays the CL final and was awarded the MotM by The Mirror in the semi when Liverpool knocked out Chelsea? Niclas Jensen hasn't even been regular for a struggeling Dortmund ffs.
