For example if Gyau was healthy and playing for Dortmund even as a sub I would of said he is the best American player in Europe playing at the highest level but he is not so I said klesjtan is now.

But he's not really playing...he started 1 of the 4 CL games. Rubin having four assists in the Eredivisie or Howard playing every minute of Everton's Europa League campaign is more impressive. Sacha is "the best American player in the champions league" by default. Because he happens to be on a team that's in the champions league. He is hardly even playing for them. And you saying he's the best American player in Europe isnt true. The Europa League is also considered a European competition, and Howard is better than Sacha.

It's like saying Yao Ming is the greatest 7'6" Asian NBA player ever. That's true, but it's only true by default. Sacha is "the best American player in the Champions League" simply because he's the ONLY American player in the champions league. See my point?

sacha! poor old boy has really been SOL since anderlecht grapped steven doefour over the summer. defour is a legit belgian internaional - 26 y/o, 46 caps, 2014 WC...

then garber shot down a move to LAG over transfer window for unexplained reasons

all that said, deserves recognition for another 90 min UCL performance - this time going toe to toe with the likes of arteta, ramsey, sanchez, cazorla,,, - helping grab a point at emirates

SK is a classy player, just turned 29 and should have plenty in the tank. hopefully the right move in january sets him up for a positive 2015
