Time for making status. My personal lists for the season:Most positive:
-Jette Hansen, AC la Cour and Silkeborgs surprisingly good season
-Sarah Iversen and Stine Bodholts season - suddenly we have several good prospects for the LP position on NT, and they can play both ways.
-TTH winning in russia (despite the club selling the homecourt) and taking EHF gold + DM bronze
-That Lærke Møller has played a whole season apparently without major injuries occuring (and that despite playing alot)
-Getting to know better Silje Solberg and Nathalie Hagman + the first half season Silje had in TTH
-Fie Wollers second half of the season, seeing her find her confidence again
-Rikke Skov returning from injury better than ever
-Freja Cohrt starting to show her potential
-In general seeing many familiar and/or new names popping up: Besides those already mentioned - Amanda Brogaard, Line Uno, Mie Højlund, AM Pedersen
-Rikke Poulsens seasonMost negative:
-The Viborg situation (Financial, management of situation with Dalmose, injuries), not winning anything with the players they have (I know, injuries, but still)
-HC Odense missing the play offs and Greve, Offendal underperforming (at least for part of the season)
-Randers and Schumachers season
-Skive withdrawing their team so late
-The pokalfinale (so dull and lousy quality)
-FCM missing CL
-CPH first half season and missing play offs
-The concussions especially in Søs Søby and Maria Fiskers cases. Apparently Fisker should be training again (
). I so hope for Søby she'll get rid of her headaches by getting help in the US!My allstar team:
-LW: AG Nørgaard
: Fisker out so... But great second half season from F. Woller too. However AG is just a scoring machine (even if she's been a bit more unstable this season)
-LB: Estevana Polman
: Hardest choice. If it was CL matches, I'd give it to Sanja Damnjanovic but she hasn't been as good in Danish League matches and she was injured a long time. Polman defense is lacking and Skov and Jette Hansen could get it too. But I think in the end I'll go with Polman, cause she has that extra quality to decide the matches.
-PM: Nycke Groot
-RB: Louise Burgaard
: I'm not neutral here, I know
But I do believe Burgaard deserves it for being the clear topscorer of VHK with 132 goals and having pulled alot of weight in VHK all season with all the injuries and in both ends of court. I could very well have picked Line Jørgensen and la Cour too, but la Cour needs some more defending for that IMO and Line J has been able to get more rest than Bur (just a youngster as sub but still, FCM has been able to rest her. There were several matches where Bur was not rested at all except when she got suspensions). Nathalie Hagman would have been a good choice too, but I missed her in the DM play offs, when it counted the most. And she's been able to get some rest as well.
-RW: Trine Østergaard
Nathalie Hagman could get it too, but she's better as RB.
-LP: Stine Bodholt
Could have gone with Sarah Iversen too, but Bodholt is in the play offs and DM final + played herself on NT, so I'll go with her.
-GK: Sabine Englert
: "The silent killer". No one really comes close allthough she was matched by Silje Solberg in the first half of season but in the end alot more stable.
