Inverting the Pyramid

I have been saying this since Carlos’ final season. We need to invert the pyramid.

 

All the top sides do it yet we persist with old fashioned methods and get caught out. It’s never been more obvious than the 2nd half of this season yet Monk is oblivious.

 

That speaks volumes.

 

Dejphon?

I read 

"Re-aligning the Rhomboid" by Walter Winterbottom

 

..It was a good read but probably over the heads of most on here....I obviously understood it perfectly.

instead of playing a roving false number 9 in the hole, with an overlapping wing half...he played a false no 8 who didn't rove, but actually "Hid" in the hole!!!!!

This confused most managers at the time, until, they realised the................... "False no 8".... wasn't roving !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He was in the HOLE!! all the time!!!!

 

 

I know!!!!!! 

 

It was only a passin' centre half outta position that noticed him!!!

He shouted "123 Dun yer"..and the whole system went to pot!

 

Its a decent read if you find a copy..

I'll wager that centre half was this bloke..

He used to stumble around a great deal out of position didn't he ?
