    I don't know what the B is. Can you show me an example?

    It sounds like 1v1 or 2v2. In that case it's 1 player v 1 player, or 3 v 2 for example.

    Can you find an instance of this B stuff?

    Hi Mike,

    To put it bluntly, the F9 is pretending to be a striker. He starts in the position you'd see Torres, Falcao in, but drops deep to join the play and drag players out to mark him.

    This makes holes in the opposition's formation and midfielders flood forward to utilise the space and take advantage.

    England 0-6 Hungary may have been the first ever F9 (Hidegkuti, Puskas), It could have been Sindelar from the Austrian wunderteam in 1930. People generally accredit Spalletti and Totti from 2006 though.
