    All the players you have named are attackers? Are you telling me there are no club greatwho is a defender or keeper? I for one, regard Puyol as one of the greatest players to ever wear the barca jersey. As much as i admire our attacking players, Puyol is the lifeblood of this team. I think you should redo this article and consider the great defenders of Barcelona

      Ronald Koeman was a defender/sweeper and sometimes played defensive midfielder. Guardiola wasn’t an attacking player either.

      Puyol has been a fantastic servant to the club and is undoubtedly one of the best defenders we have had but in all fairness to the author, he could only pick 10 players. I would maybe put Andoni Zubizarreta in there as well.

      Pep Samitier, Carles Rexach, Neeskins, Luis Suarez, Ronaldo, Romario, Nadal – we’ve had some brilliant players over our history.

        And so what? Indeed is Puyol so underrated to not be considered as one of the 10 most important players in the history of Barça? Puyol is undoubtedly one of the top 10 in the history of Barça, and he is clearly over some of the players on this absurd list.

      Rivaldo and Messi are the 2 best players I have ever seen at Barcelona. How is Rivaldo omitted??

      He maybe a Judas but I always felt Figo was pure class at Barca. Far better than Xavi, Inniesta, Guardiola. But just played in harder era of football and a weaker side. Should be in the top 10

    Iniesta at 8 !!!! Is this a joke ? According to the game I see, anyone can tell that he is better than Xavi.

    Messi try sha. But if he wil like to move from barcelona to another club: that is when i wil believ that he is totally a magician. For now he is not. Barcelona has football jokerlers were the hustle ball. Anyone can play and do best in barca. Check out: Henry, Eto, Ronaldiho. Were they not good? Make una think well….
