Y’all didn’t think that I was just going to leave that sit, did you? 😀
Without further ado, here are the results of the Barca love/hate poll. But first, a word on methodology. Anybody who ran a laundry list of players past the filters, got their first name chosen, the theory being first to mind=most beloved. So there.
Most loved: 3-way tie between Xavi, Iniesta and Messi
Most hated: Marquez, in a landslide
Interesting to note: A few players made both lists: Krkic, Alves. Busquets was second place on the hate list, and Keita even made the hate list, though with caveats.
Most surprising name(s) on the hate list: Alves, Ibrahimovic
Surprising they didn’t get more votes: The Yaya (just one)
Finally: Yes, Hleb made some lists, but those votes didn’t count, since he isn’t a current player. Neener, neener.
