Alfredo as a number 10


Recommended Posts

Given the challenge of incorporating Defoe into the established team formation and our lack (before today) of goals from midfield. 

Should we look at playing Morelos as a number 10? As a very attacking midfielder breaking into the box and taking chances.

His natural game sees him foraging deeper and wider than a natural penalty box player like Defoe and some of the advanced ball winning he does is excellent.

If we have Defoe playing as a number 9 then could we play Morelos as a 10 rather than trying to shoehorn a two up top system that doesn't suit us?

His touch around the box was awful today, especially with his back to goal. He's a 9, a goal scorer, and I've yet to be convinced he can even work as part of a front pair. Its a no from me.

He's class where he plays just now. Messing about with the team is our biggest issue just now.

It's mental that there is always a thread on here wanting to change things, even after a win, or players being our best performers in their positions.  Morelos is a striker.  Tav is a fullba

I don't think so - a number 10 is creative and has excellent passing ability, creating the chances for your strikers to score. I don't see Morelos as that. He bullies defenders and leads the line but I think he is best off played up top, replacing him with Defoe rather than trying to play a 2 striker system.

I doubt he will be here much longer, so hadly worth the effort.

Costa had hardly had a kick in senior football at Morelos age, I said he had it in him to be as good I never said he was, do you disagree?

I love the wee man and think he will go on to bigger things but Diego Costa level not a chance ,I bloody hope so tho m8 and we have a sell on clause ,just my opinion of course ,be boring if we all agreed 👍we should just enjoy him while he’s here 🍻

Morelos is a striker. 

Tav is a fullback. (for the next person to suggest moving him to the wing) 

3-5-2 didn't work. 

4-4-2 didn't work.
