November voting opens
Paris Saint-Germain Handball have just wrapped up an intense month of November. Who do you think was Les Rouge et Bleus' best player during that time?
The club's top scorer in November with 51 goals in all competitions, Mikkel Hansen has been racking pu the excellent performances. In the Lidl Starligue, he reached the 10-goal mark on two occasions: against Aix (31-27) and Tremblay (30-25). In the Velux EHF Champions League, our left-back has also been in clinical form, notably firing 6 from 8 against Flensburg. It has ben a near-perfect month for our Danish international, who received numerous honours over the last few weeks and who was one of our league's three best players in November.
Blending clinical finishing and stylish play is something very few players are capable of, but Uwe Gensheimer is without a doubt one of those men. In mid-November, he remained cool, calm and collected as he clinched a last-second win for his side at home to Flensburg (29-28). A few days later. In the reverse fixture in his native Germany, his killer instinct was once again on display as he fired a precision shot between the legs of 'keeper Benjamin Buric from the tightest of angles to silence the crowd at the Flens-Arena.
At the other end of the court, we find a 'keeper who has been an immovable object for many years. Now aged 42, Thierry Omeyer continues to demonstrate why he has and will continue to go down in the history of the sport. After injuring his hand just before the Flensburg clash, Titi refused to sit on the sidelines and pulled out a huge performance, making ten saves at 33% to help his side to a 20-27 win. In the Lidl Starligue, he also stymied the front men from Tremblay (12 saves) and Dunkerque (10).
HENRIK TOFT HANSEN
Summer arrival Henrik Toft Hansen has taken to life in Paris like a duck to water. On the court, he found his feet quickly, as numerous opposition defences can attest. Dunkerque could do little to slow his roll, the Dane hitting 6 from 6 to help hide side to 23-27 win in the north of France - earning a place in the LSL's Best for Round 9 in the process. A week later, he was at it again, but this time on the European stage, playing his way into the Velux EHF Champions League's Best 7 for Round 9 with 6 from 7 despite the narrow defeat to Szeged (33-32).
Although Sander Sagosen hasn't completely hit his straps in front of goal, it hasn't been for ant of trying. Against Cesson-Rennes (19-29), he scored three times - including a superb kung-fu! - but also played a key role in the excellent attacking display from Raul Gonzalez's men. But this isn't to say he isn't capable of heroics in front of goal! In Paris Saint-Germain Handball's ultra-important win over closest Group B rivals Szeged (33-31), our Norwegian playmaker was ice cold, shooting 7 from 7 and top-top-scoring in the match.
