    besides you and me

    Are these sentences correct:

    1) Besides you and me, he is the best player in this club.

    2) Aside from you and me, he is the best player in this club.
    3) Apart from you and me, he is the best player in this club.
    4) If one doesn't count you and me, he is the best player in this club.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: besides you and me

    He's the third best player in this club, after us.

    Yours are all understandable but I've never liked the habit of describing someone or something as the best whilst also saying they're not the best.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: besides you and me

    You could also use after you and me.
