Well, must is a bit strongly worded considering that company I must concede.


But Falcao has the resume over any of them if you ask me. He won the Europa League, which admittedly might not be the most prestigious prize, but for a team like Atletico I think it's a fantastic achievement. And he has Atletico humming in second place in La Liga at the moment. He might not deserve all the credit for that, but he's certainly the catalyst. Among all those guys Falcao was either much more important to his team or his team was more successful. You can pick out the flaws in any of the other guys, but not Falcao. That makes it the right decision for me.
