    Put Iniesta second in offensive midfielder list. You ranked him higher than Coluna and Xavi.

    1. If the players are rated in the same class, the tactical reason allows lower rated player to get place.

      And what about Busquets? He is very low in this defensive midfielder list but he appear in the 9x100 list.
