False 9's ?

Post by Newmarket » Thu Aug 11, 2016 7:22 am

What exactly IS a false no.9 ?

Any way connected with the amount of wingers and wide midfielders Billick has/wants/utilises ?

Seriously I keep hearing the expression but haven't a fucking clue what is meant by it ...

No out and our striker basically

So imagine

Kouyate noble
Feghouli Payet Antonio
Carroll

That's just the usual 3 behind striker but then remove Carroll and put in Nordtveit so your team is now

Kouyate Nordtveit noble
Feghouli Payet Antonio

You would probably call Payet 'the false 9' hope that makes some sense

What made you mention Carlty?

All we got to do now is get those false 9s to become ghost number 6s and we will be unstoppable.

A good person does things in silence, others strive to be seen as good so scream out their deeds.

A player is not a false 9 by definition.....it is a positional strategy made famous by Barcelona (and Allardyce during the Spuds thrashing a couple of years ago....the one Morrison scored in)

So if Ayew plays up front then he is a striker. Even if Collins played up front he would be playing as a striker.

A false 9 is where you have the formation mentioned earlier but all rotate and switch so it is difficult for the defenders to know who to mark if they have been told to mark the striker.
