  1. Ai guys, hands down!!! Messi is the best total footballer in the world. Denis Suarez is starting to shown signs of why Barca bought him, he is a midfield-come striker just like Rakitic on his first season at Barca. Anyway, tables are starting to turn , and Barcelona is starting to gain momentum at a crucial stage.
