re: 2014 Summer Transfer Thread - Meursault
[quote]Lambert is not a striker for a hipster formation.[/quote] Yeah, I was incorrect in that statement. Crazy had a couple great posts that more or less explain the differences between a real 9 and a proper false 9. Lambert is obviously not in the same mould as say Fabregas, or Totti. In re...

[quote] i never got the hate [/quote] I think it starts with his infamous red card in the 98 World Cup. People don't like it when players act out irrationally and make stupid mistakes. And people tend to be slow to forgive. He also took a lot of heat for shite he pulled with LA Galaxy, leaving ...

[quote]"Reports here in Boston that #LFC will offload Johnson for £4m now that Moreno & Manquillo are in the bag, one year before he goes for free." From @DavidZollerNBC[/quote] Good business if that happens. Let Manquillo/Flanno battle it out on the right, and Moreno/Enrique on the left. A l...

re: 2014 Summer Transfer Thread - Meursault
Well I guess I won't be convincing anyone here that he is the definition of a false 9, but it cannot be refuted that SOTON deployed him in that role. And I truly believe that his role at Liverpool will be very similar....

re: 2014 Summer Transfer Thread - Meursault
[quote]These are conventional attacking midfielders who are asked to drop deep and play across the attacking third. [/quote] So what does that make Lambert if he does the exact same thing? He does fall back, and does show creativity with the ball. A lot more so than a guy like Carroll like you wo...

Welcome back, hope things are going well for you :cheers: I think he is supposed to get a new number, but it looks like 11? I guess it's his preference, but I would be okay with him taking 7 as well....

[quote]Lambert is more of poacher and not so much as a presence winning balls in the air or holding it up top while the play develops[/quote] Agreed. He's a false 9 more than anything else....

re: 2014 Summer Transfer Thread - Meursault
Oooh, him! I don't know why but I was thinking of someone else entirely. Yeah, I would love to have him. He would help out more immediately than picking up say another winger like Lavezzi or Shaqiri. As far as I'm concerned, having a guy who fits that mould and can play that role is more importa...
