AMOROSO!, it's nice to get some visitors from outside the Nordic world ! Especially when they agree with me ....because I also voted for Sørensen. He's very good for Sunderland, just as good for the Danish NT, and so I expect him to be one of the top keepers at the forthcomming WC.
I voted for Antti Niemi. I think he is a fantastic keeper and there's only a few I think is better in the World today.
England should be thanking Niemi just as much as they are thanking Beckham and Eriksson for their World Cup place. That game Niemi did against Germany was among the best performances I've seen from a keeper ever.
My vote goes also for Antti Niemi. His performances for our national team have been simply outstanding, and I wonder how he is still playing for a 2nd class team like Hearts. He would definetely be a great signing for any team from EPL or other top league.
Jääskeläinen isn't far behind him, but because he has lost that great form he had in the first half of season I'd rate Niemi before him.
There would probably be other good picks as well, but I haven't seen that much of them playing so I won't vote for them.
I am absolutely willing to include the Baltic countries Kat. With the name change, it has sort of opened up for you too, just like the Scandinavian was borderline Iceland, Faroe Islands and Finland. Nordic can also relate to the Baltic countries, and if any of you feel like writing in this forum, you are more than welcoime.
However, I must admit that my knowledge of the Baltic players are somewhat small, so if you could send me a list of the 8 or 16 best players from Estonia, I would be happy to include them.
The positions are
I voted for Sørensen too, no big surprise there. He has been outstanding for Sunderland, just ahead of the other national team keepers, he is on top.
More surprisingly, is that I almost considered voting for Arason. How I wish he was Norwegian. An amazing player, who no one has seen the best of yet. If Rosenborg start scoring in the Champions League again and they keep him, they will do better than ever before.
I choosed between Isaksson and Sörensen and my vote finaly landed on Isaksson...
I still think Hedman is the best scandi-keeper but I looked at current form when I made my vote and as he's been struggling some lately I didnt vote on him...
