Atletico fans were disappointed when Sergio Agüero left for Man City last summer.
After missing out on Pablo Osvaldo and then losing Diego Forlan to Inter & De Gea to Man United, fans began to question the aspirations of the club.
Then they signed Falcao from Porto after he won the Primeira and Europa League.
Many wondered if he could match his performance with Porto on a team that finished seventh in La Liga before they sold their three best players.
Now, especially after Diego Simeone took over his former club, Falcao has proven to be well worth the money.
He has perhaps been the best No. 9 in all of Europe this season. Mario Gomez might have more goals, but he also has superior service.
He scored another goal against Granada this weekend, taking him to 16 on the season—-21 in all competitions.
That puts him four behind Agüero's greatest output for Los Rojiblancos with a month and a half to play.
