Coach of the Year: Andrée Jeglertz, Umeå IK - to me it seems more motivated this year than last. He's had more problems to overcome with the mass exodus from his 2006 team but also more failures - the defeat in the UEFA Women's Cup final, the failure to integrate Ma Xiaoxu in the team and losing matches to domestic competition. But I do think it's a bit boring to just see the ones that coached the champions win this award every year (it's the same for the men). Why not somebody like Kenneth Israelsson, who's done great with his much lesser resources.
Breakthrough of the Year: Linda Forsberg, Djurgården - the breakthrough price usually goes to a player that has taken the step to establish herself in the national team. So it is in a way Dennerby that picks the winner. But I can't say she is less deserving than any ther of the nominees.
Goalkeeper of the Year: Bente Nordby, Djurgården - I was hoping for this. If you were simply looking for the best, it was Nordby or Caroline Jönsson and Carre dropped out (knee injury) after a little bit more than half the season. And it's a nice goodbye to a great player, who now leaves Sweden and maybe football.
Defender of the Year: Hanna Marklund, Sunnanå - she subscribes to this award, but it is hard to argue against her. If Djurgården had let Hingst play defense instead of midfield, we might have had a match.
Midfielder of the Year: Therese Sjögran, LDB FC Malmö - even if her Malmö teammate Nilla Fischer had higher ratings in the local paper, Sjögrans national team performance made the difference.
Forward of the Year: Marta Vieira da Silva, Umeå IK - the best player in the world must be the best something in Sweden too, mustn't she?
The Player of the Year, the Diamond Ball: Therese Sjögran, LDB FC Malmö - there are never any nominees for this and it can only be won by a Swedish player. There has been a lot of names mentioned, but fairly few had picked Sjögran. To me she was the obvious choice, a dominating figure in the league and one of few in the national team that didn't disappoint but rather impressed in the World Cup. Big night for Malmö by the way - Zlatan Ibrahimovic won the Gold Ball.
TV4's football website, fotbollskanalen.se, had a people's choice award where the viewers could phone in their votes on one of four alternatives of people or groups of people that had done something extraordinary for football the last year. The winner: Marta, for her performance the entire season, but in particular in the World Cup.

Ibrahimovic gives kudos to Marta in the afterparty thing on TV4. A pleasant segment in an otherwise very nasty piece of television.
^ You sat through it all?! My god, I've never seen such a load drunken mess on TV. Even Malin Swedberg came off as a sort of unpleasant person.
No, no... I watched on TV4 Webb-TV and fast forwarded to the right segment...
Can you elaborate on this drunken mess, since some of us English speakers don't live in Sweden?
Are the results of the People's Choice poll up anywhere as far as the number of votes per nominee goes?
Drunk TV people, former players (Malin Swedberg) and a former boxer are all leering with great adminration at Inter striker Ibrahimovic that not only graced the gala with his presence but also agreed to the 'afterparty' thingy. The 'interview' was held in a fanzine style with little or no critical thinking.
The drunken mess was mostly the veteran goalkeeper of the Swedish Champions on the men's side, IFK Götebotg, who celebrated the Championship and his retirement thoroughly. After a couple of beers and a nostalgic emotional talk with the club manager, he was interviewed in live TV, tipsy and still with tears in his eyes and there was a media storm in a waterglass about how he could have the audacity to be hammered on TV.
I don't mind cute teary drunks like the IFK keeper, but if they're loud and stupid like Paolo R and the other "panelists"... not something I want on my TV.
Speaking of cute and teary, how much did Marta have to drink? All that crying and how she had forgotten every Swedish word painfully acquired in the last four years - a little too much to be explained by her usual emotional instability.
