Who's No. 1: Clint Dempsey or Michael Bradley?

ASN 100 panelist Brian Sciaretta took some time to answer a few questions about the latest poll. He offers up his thoughts on who should be higher, who should be lower, and MB vs. CD.

1) Give me one player you think should be ranked higher. Why?
John Anthony Brooks. He's starting for a team that is likely going to get promoted to the Bundesliga. On top of that, he's playing really well at the moment. Honorable mention to Conor O'Brien who is just playing fanstastic soccer in the Danish Superliga.

2) Give me one player you think should be ranked lower. Why?
Maurice Edu. He's No. 22 right now. His stock has faded big time. He's not even making the bench for Stoke and hasn't played well for the US national team in years. Playing for Rangers made him seem like a good player but the Scottish league is horrific outside the Old Firm.

3) Name a player who you had in your 100 that didn't make the list and give me a case why he should have?
Steve Clark. In my opinion he's better that Bill Hamid, Sean Johnson, or any other keeper outside of Howard, Guzan, and Friedel. He's the best keeper in Norway and perhaps saved Honefoss from relegation.

4) Clint Dempsey beat out Michael Bradley by one point. Who ya got? And why?
I had Clint Dempsey on my list but based on the last week's performances, I'm voting for Michael Bradley next month. He's taken his game to another level with Roma.
