Christian Basilla > Asamoah Gyan?

Asamoah Gyan
Christian Basilla
Christian Basilla. Remember him. Unfortunately I do, and he brings back terrible memories of that terrible season. Of course now I can look back with a certain degree of pleasure, as if to say 'look how far we've come' and 'it could be worse- Basilla could be playing'. He only featured 13 times for us, some might say 13 times too many. Anyway, after we were relegated he was moved on to Larisa, where he stayed for a year before moving on again, it seems as though teams can't get shot of him quick enough. Hardly surprising mind, the picture on the left sums the individual performances of Christian up. Comical. Comical actually sums up that season too. Anyway, enough about that. After leaving Energie Cottbus in 2008, he moved to French side EA Guingamp where he would taste some cup success. He captained the side to a 2-1 win over Rennes, who were a whole league higher, in the French Cup. Guess who was in that Rennes squad? Yep, no other than Asamoah Gyan. Who would have thought that such a below average football in the shape of Christian Basilla, would get one over on the future African player of the year? Anyway, sort of a pointless blog post but I thought I'd write about it anyway, just for the sheer hell of writing about Christian Bassila - The face of pure evil.
