In 2009, a Football Club along with its mastermind Pep Guardiola, managed to engrave an amazing history into the record books and onto the hearts of all fellow Cules around the world, when they managed to win six cups in one year! It wasn’t easy though, because this club had to go through the suffering of all the criticisms, of all the hatred, of all the injuries, but most importantly of all the doubts that the new players and the new couch could not possibly lift this club where its supposed to be at. Hence, many gave up on the team when they heard that a player named Ronaldinho would leave, that a second league coach would take the reigns, and that later a hunger filled lion by the name of Eto’o would be sold to an Italian Club. But Oh, how they were wrong! Because this football club known as FC Barcelona surpassed and won EVERYTHING, making them righteous to receive the title: The Best Team Of The World!
But of course, The Best Team Of The World has to have a best player. That is why this poll has been created. You all know that this magnificent year is coming to a close, but with it, we are taking a fond and jubilant memory: 6 Tournaments played and 6 Tournaments won, what a magnificent year!
