    I have no doubt that you believe what you say to the point of non stop repetition, but in the real world of football it's pretty much a load of hot air!

    Apologies Sloth fro late reply.

    Purely out of interest could you put this outfield 10 down in a paper formation:

    Alves
    Pique
    Puyol
    Mascherano
    Xavi
    Iniesta
    Busquets
    Fabregas
    Cuenca
    Messi

    I could give you the McLeish option - will that do?

    Is that this one?

    Alves Fabregas Iniesta Xavi Puyol Pique Busquets Mascherano Cuenca ​

    Heskey

    Messi was dropped for Heskey at the last minute due to being too exciting.​

    Legend, we're getting side-tracked here, I understand your point about paper formations, I've responded that when we use formations to describe an idea we do so because they are useful as a short-hand tool for encompassing a number of things which might change depending on context. As long as we all understand that they are this tool, and they don't mean a single thing, but that we might have to interpret a little bit what the other person's getting at, we're all ok. Of course we can chose to be destructive, and focus on the periphery, or pretend we don't understand the rules of the conversation at all, we can chose to take the opposite interpretation of what we think is probably meant, and any discussion will degenerate into meaningless point-scoring.

    In this particular case, I have, for argument's sake, accepted your version of the way Barca play, because I think it's essentially irrelevant to the wider point I was trying to make. Engage with that (or don't), it's up to you, but I would have thought this was a perfect chance to show how simplistic my grasp of the game is?

    I wasn't intending either of those things!

    I get your point totally and will refrain from mentioning it to you again as I now realise that essentially we are on the same page on this!

    Fair enough mate, cheers for that. Now I feel a bit embarrassed about the post I made in response to you in the other thread :oops:

    Oh well...

    Heskey would have his defensive duties emphasised and be expected to drop back and be the midfield as well.
