    Zidane.
    Was Zidane a number 10? Again, before my time but I always thought of him as a 'creative' CM rather than purely a number 10 :dontknow:

    Pretty much, e.g. in 2006 WC final the formation was:

    Henry
    Malouda Zidane Ribery
    Makelele Vieira

    It's like a nostalgia trip for me tbh, happy to impart any knowledge I have!

    I'm a fan of the game first and foremost, then Arsenal.

    Same.

    Personally like all avenues of the game though, sometimes the dirty gritty side is cool tbh.

    Yeah you belong in the Serie A school of catenaccio, your football hipster quiz result would read as this (borrowed from the quiz):

    "You say Italian teams in an Italian accent, love stories of tactical innovations of the 1950s and prefer a well-executed lateral five-yard pass to a 30-yard screamer into the top corner"

    :rofl: continued top 4 my friend! Also is anyone here a fan of their team before the game?

    Tbh I agree with Jam. I'd rather see a solid defensive performance than a high-goal scoring game- and by that I don't mean a drab 0-0 draw with 3 shots between the teams on target; I mean cagey 1-0 and 2-1 wins where teams defend and attack well. I'm more of a pragmatist than a purist tbh.

    I took the football quiz and it said that I don't know what a false 9 is because I didn't want to watch malmo vs whatever.

    Firstly it was originally invented in the 1930s by switzerland but got popular in italy in the 60s.

    Funnily enough, I am a big football hipster though and know loads about football history.

    Österreich.

    Understandable, if I was a Chelsea fan I'd go looking for history everywhere I could find it.

    Na, was made by an austrian coach though but when he was in charge of Switzerland was when it got big.

    Na, it's more down to my character, I like to look at past events and use that to predict the future.

    Matthias Sindelar played as a false 9 for Austria at the 1934 world cup. and in a famous friendly vs England in 1932.

    At least according to Jonaton Wilson/

    Yeah it is all great stuff.

    'Inverting the pyramid' from Jonathan Wilson is a superb book to read on the beach this summer mate, really traces the history of tactics since the year dot
