    Award season is here. Here are the Toppserien nominees and winners in bold in various categories from the Football Gala on Monday night.

    PLAYER OF THE YEAR
    Sherida Spitse, Vålerenga
    Synne Jensen, Røa
    Kennya Cordner, Sandviken

    COACH OF THE YEAR
    Hege Riise, LSK Kvinner
    Monica Knudsen, Vålerenga
    Steinar Lein, Trondheims-Ørn

    YOUNG PLAYER OF THE YEAR
    Julie Blakstad, Fart
    Rikke Nygard, Arna Bjørnar
    Runa Lillegård, Lyn

    TOP SCORER OF THE YEAR
    Kenny Cordner, Sandviken

    HONORARY AWARD
    Ingrid Hjelmseth

    SUPPORTERS OF THE YEAR
    Klanen (The Clan) - Vålerenga supporters

    Caro Hansen was very critical to Vålerenga winning the supporters award on her twitter account because they were "fat shaming" LSK player Therese Åsland in the cup final. Caro tweeted: "We shouldn't celebrate bullies and organizations who cater for bad attitude and hate in society". Caro is a former Lyn player and Vålerenga are the arch rivals in Oslo, which adds extra bite to her comments. She also said once she wouldn't be caught dead in a Vålerenga shirt.

    You think she would have more playing time with top tier clubs instead of a potential relegated team? Unless there are no spots for top tier.

    I think she should have stayed at LSK Kvinner another year and build up more experience until a better club showed interest, but I don't know the personal details in her contract. It could be a lucrative offer difficult to turn down.

    Caro Hansen was voted Norway's Player of the Year last night. Based on reactions on social media, Ada's fanbase wasn't very pleased with that.

    Well Ada didn’t played for Norway the last few years they are going to have to accept it. And she will never play for Norway again.

    Not much to report from Norway lately apart from the occasional new signing on the transfer market. Some players have moved abroad like Ingrid Moe Wold to Madrid and Cecilie Fiskerstrand to Brighton, taking the tally of foreign based Norwegians to a record 29 (Eng 11, Swe 8, Fra 2, Esp 2, Ita 2, Ger 2, Den 1, Sui 1). Norwegian clubs have just started pre-season training and there will be a bunch of friendly matches later this winter to follow. We'll get back to that.

    How good it is to see Guro Reiten flourish at Chelsea. She has grown into a key player now. Her last couple of games have been immense. Two assists and a headed(!) goal by her this weekend in the big game against Arsenal. I can't ever remember a header from her in Toppserien. Caro Hansen has missed the last few matches at Barcelona with a foot injury. Hope she'll be back soon.

    Bauser: I see in your summary that Cecilie Pedersen is retiring - sad. What she might have accomplished had she played the past several years for the Norwegian national team we will never know. If her retirement is based on injury, she may heal sufficiently in the future to make a comeback even if brief. She was something to watch in her earlier years especially for the national team - ripping through defenses.

    Yes, she never recovered from the injury problems she has carried over the last couple of years. That's why she stops now. In her prime, she would have been a valuable asset to the national team, especially now without Ada. Too bad Pedersen didn't want to be part of the Norway team. The true reason for it never surfaced, I think.

    I noticed Caro missing from the Barça lineups since the start of the year, anybody know how serious her injury is?/ will she be back for the Algarve Cup?.

    both Reiten & Mjelde currently playing really well for Chelsea, and to be honest, which look like the best pro club in the world right now

    Caro should be returning very soon. There was something about a foot injury, but details around the injury hasn't been mentioned anywhere I've seen. She was walking around the streets of Barcelona seemingly normal during an interview made by NRK on Sunday night though. Barcelona probably don't want to risk anything with her at this stage of the season with the big games coming up later.

    Caroline G. Hansen ............ 1995 ..... Barcelona (ESP)
    Lisa-Marie Utland ............... 1992 ..... Reading (ENG)
    Elise Thorsnes ................... 1988 ..... Avaldsnes
    Synne Jensen .................... 1996 ..... Vålerenga

    Changes since last selection:
    OUT: Kristine Leine, Cecilie Kvamme, Isabell Herlovsen, Vilde Hasund, Elisabeth Terland
    IN: Emilie Woldvik, Anja Sønstevold, Kristine Minde

    LSK full-back Woldvik is a debutant. She can play both left and right. We've had a problem on those positions, so it will be interesting to see some new faces against top level opposition. Exciting to see Synne Jensen back in the squad after some time in the cold.

    Ingrid Engen is now listed as a MF? I seemed to remember she was played as a proper DF at the WWC. :cautious:

    Engen is a defensive midfielder. Mjelde and Thorisdottir were the two centrebacks for Norway in the WWC with Engen just in front of them. Engen seems to have the same role for Wolfsburg in the games I've seen.

    Engen has played in defence a couple of matches in her life, all after the WC. She got deployed there early in her Wolfsburg career, and stepped in for the injured Thorisdottir against Northern Ireland.

    Before that she's always been a midfielder.
