There are only a couple world class players on those teams. We both have different definitions of "World Class Players" If you go by those players than you could easily put, Dempsey, Landon, Howard, Bradley, Fabian, Jones, Jozy, Aron in that category.
All those names i listed can compete with world class type players. Unless you go with the elite top world class players which there aren't many like a Robben, Messi, Pirlo, Neymar, Di maria, Ronaldo, Lahm, Suarez, iniesta, vidal etc...


Bullshit.

Brazil: Neymar, Oscar, Thiago Silva, Dani Alves, etc
Spain: Pique, Xavi, Iniesta, Casillas, etc
France: Ribery, Benzema, Lloris, Pogba
Netherlands: Van Persie, Robben, etc
Colombia: Falcao, Rodriguez
Chile: Sanchez, Vidal
Uruguay: Cavani, Suarez
England: Gerrard
Italy: Buffon, Chiellini, Pirlo, etc
Argentina: Messi, Aguero, Higuain
Germany: Neuer, Ozil, Lahm, etc
Portugal: Ronaldo
Belgium: Courtois, Hazard, Kompany

We have no players that are on par with any of those players.

Poor England.

Portugal has Nani.

No, just naming names.

And as for England, Gerrard is the only world class player. But I would argue that Henderson, Sterling, Sturridge, Cahill, Baines, and even Rooney are better than anyone we have in those positions.

And Nani is a shell of himself.

Well that escalated fast.

My opinion that MB90 is on the cusp of being a World Class player. He may very well show at the WC that he is a World Class player.

People need to realise that opinions are just that opinions.

I guess we will see in the wc. Out of all those teams you listed I have a feeling USA will do better than some of them. Then what will it mean for their world class players Nothing!!

I'm happy to go out on a limb and say I think MB90 is a world class player. Some of you guys gotta realize that not all of our players get the opportunities that others do.

Think about Lando (who IMO was a no-brainer world class player from 06-10) - he only got to show that he was world class for 2 1-month stints in the EPL and several World Cup matches. MB90 has had even fewer opportunities.

Oh, and BTW, Gerrard, world class? My ass. Stevie G. is one of my favorite players of all time, but he's not the player he was a couple of years ago.

Jesus........Bradley is world class and Stevie G isn't in the same breath. US fans wonder why foreigners laugh at them. Here's an answer.

Thank you. And this is coming from a Toffee. It pains me to say he is a world class talent, but he is. He still is, not just that he was.

Donovan is world class without a doubt.. If you can perform in soccers biggest stage and win the best young player from the tournament at 20.. That's world class.. He also performed in the Bpl without any "gelling" time or trying to get used to it.. He schooled Ashley cole who was ranked one of the best if not the best lb at that time.. Dempsey also is world class.. To do what he did with Fulham, sucky ass team and help them to a final in Europe.. Being selected fourth best player in the premier and should have been third but because Scholes played half a season they chose him over Dempsey.. We will be lucky if any of these young players that are mentioned on these posts are half of what these two players are and were.

So Donovan and Deuce could go into Bayern, Real, Chelsea, Liverpool, Barca, PSG, City, Dortmund, Arsenal, Madrid, etc and start or at least get a lot of PT?

As a matter of fact soccer wise Donovan when he retires will be over Beckham. He is and will always be a better soccer player than Beckham. He will have his celebrity status and riches, but I feel Donovan will be the better soccer player overall.

That's your opinion. And really I could care less if "foreigners" laugh at my opinion about US players.

I am not going to change my opinion about MB90 because a "foreigner" laughs at my opinion.

It seems you're easily persuaded about what "foreigners" think.

Sorry, but it IS laughable to say Bradley is world class and Gerrard is not. You can be a US homer all you want, but lets not be ridiculous here.
