2008 Mundo Albiceleste Award - The Results

Finally all the votes have been counted and it’s time now to unveil our respective winners. So let’s not waste anymore time here and see which Albiceleste prevail in 2008, as chosen by you.

Best Goalkeepers

1. Juan Pablo CARRIZO (59.26%)
2. Roberto ABBONDANZIERI (29.63%)
3. Mauricio CARANTA (7.41%)

CARRIZO was phenomenal for River during the Clausura campaign from which he was the star for the Los Millonarios defense. As we look forward to see him having a great season with Lazio, here is a message to our dearest coach, Coco BASILE “The people have spoken”.

The only nominee to have won a title this season, and he was easily the most important member of River's defence, which was all over the place. The Argentine league's answer to Iker CasillasSam from HEGS

Best Defender


1. Javier ZANETTI (41.38%)
2. Ezequiel GARAY (17.24%)
3. Martin DEMICHELIS (17.24%)

It seems like Il Capitano could go on forever as his age was never a factor that influence his game. Here is a toast, to more success for him and may he still keep that fire burning until 2010.

The evergreen defender, whom guided his club to a 3rd straight Serie A title & is now part of El Loco team, deserves all the praise after being bitterly left out in WC 2006 - Bala


Best Midfielder

1. Javier MASCHERANO (51.72%)
2. Esteban CAMBIASSO (20.69%)
3. Juan Roman RIQUELME (20.69%)

Let’s see, first he was sent off against Man Utd and then the English Media went on to paint a bad picture on him. But still, more than half of the votes can’t be wrong about this. Javier, you will never walk alone.

One of the best holding midfielders in the world. Great tackler and reader of the game. If you compare him to the other argentine midfielders no one has been more consistent then him. Even though he did not win anything with Liverpool he never failed to live up to the expectations people hade for himJoe Gergi

Best Forward


1. Carlos TEVEZ (33.33%)
2. Lionel MESSI (30.00%)
3. Sergio ‘Kun’ AGUERO (30.00%)

From the word go, it was already three way battle between our small in size but gigantic by heart forwards. At the end, all of them were on level number of votes. So it was my turn to pick and my choice just had to be the one that achieved the most last season.

Again, another tough call. Lopez had a breakout season with Porto; Cavenaghi put himself on the map with his scoring in France; Messi... I love him to death but with those 2 injuries this season; I just couldn't pick him over Tevez. Aguero lite up La Liga this season, but winning the EPL and the Champions League overshadows it for me. Tevez played a vital part of Manchester United's success in both the EPL and Champions League. Scoring a late goal (away) versus Lyon in the Champions League, scoring a late goal against Tottenham and scoring a late goal versus Blackburn. All those 3 resulting in either Manchester United winning a point or 3 points in the standings Roy

Now I do have something else to show you. Based on all the votes that I received, I’ve manage to form the 2008 Mundo Albiceleste All-Star line up.
Let me know what you think about that line up.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who have participate in our first annual poll contest. It was great pleasure to do it. At first, I had some doubts about doing this but after taking some serious thought, than I said to myself just why not. Every day as I open my Yahoo Mail, I’ve been receiving many votes from our faithful readers and it was from that moment that I knew that this will be success. I just can’t wait to start it all over again in 2009. At the same time, I would like to hear your feedback on the final outcome. This is the time, for you to highlight your preference. A big shout of VAMOS goes out to all of you.

Great work John, looks a decent team! Looking at the team (and trying to think from the top of my head!) Do Argentina have any decent left backs? I can't think of one? Maybe there are some up and coming in the Argentinian league? Looking forward to see how Garay does after his loan next season at Santander.

Great list John!

If Carrizo is even half the stopper Ike is, we've got ourselves a goalkeeper. I've literally puked my intestines out watching some of Pato's performances (or lack of it) for our NT.

Tevez is simply the best choice. I love most of our strikers (Messi, Aguero et al), but I don't think any one has more heart and spirit than Carlitos.

I only hope Coco Basile puts down his weed pipe and gets Tevez back into the NT. Otherwise, we're reduced to seeing Julio Cruz or the like suck around , while Carlitos reaches new levels of awesome-ness in the EPL. :-(
