I didn't realize Wondo was 30, but you're right. It's really hard to predict how well a top american in MLS will do over there. Donovan never seemed to find his game in Germany, but then Dempsey goes to europe and tears things up! I took a Scottish buddy of mine who through the years has coached one of Houston's very top amateur teams (Rangers, go figure!) to his first MLS game a couple of seasons back, and ten minutes in he asked me what in the hell Geoff Cameron was doing playing in MLS. At that point he only had a few touches, but it was the vision and ability to handle the ball under pressure while looking down the field rather than the ball or the defender in front of him that he focused on. I don't think there's much question that he has been Stoke's most solid player this year and the biggest reason they're mid-table and not at the bottom where they usually live. I was excited to see Stoke sign another from MLS, Brek Shea, right at the transfer deadline last week, and wonder how the fans will receive a second american over there.
