Forwards are the players on a football soccer team who play nearest to the opposing team's goal, and are therefore most responsible for scoring goals. Their advanced position and limited defensive responsibilities mean forwards normally score more goals on Petrushkas Room - Igor Stravinsky, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra*, Oscar Danon* - Petrouchka of their team than other players.
Modern team formations generally include one to Shadows In The Light - Striker - Striker forwards; for example, the common 4—2—3—1 formation includes one forward. The traditional role of a centre-forward is to score Shadows In The Light - Striker - Striker majority of goals on behalf of the team. The player may also be used to win long balls or receive passes and retain possession of the ball with their back to goal as teammates advance, in order to provide depth for their team or help teammates score by providing a pass 'through ball' into the box ; the latter variation usually requiring quicker pace and good movement.
Most modern centre-forwards operate in front of the second strikers or central attacking midfielders, and do the majority of the ball handling outside the box. The present role of centre-forward is sometimes interchangeable with that of an attacking midfielderespecially in the 4—3—1—2 or 4—1—2—1—2 formations.
The term "target man" is often used to describe a Shadows In The Light - Striker - Striker type of striker whose main role is to win high balls in the air and create chances for other members of the team not necessarily scoring many goals themselves. The term centre-forward is taken from the early football playing formation in which there were five forward players: two outside forwardstwo inside forwardsand one centre-forward. When numbers were introduced in the English FA Cup finalone of the two centre-forwards that day wore the number nine — Everton's Dixie Dean a strong, powerful forward who had set the record for the most goals scored in a season in English football during the —28 season.
The number would then become synonymous with the centre-forward position only worn that day because one team was numbered 1—11 whilst the other was numbered 12— More agile strikers like Michael Owen and Sergio Aguero have an advantage over taller defenders due to their short bursts of speed.
A good striker should be able to shoot confidently with either foot, possess great power and accuracy, and have the ability to link-up with teammates and pass the ball under pressure in breakaway situations.
Deep-lying forwards have a long history in the game, but the terminology to describe their playing activity has varied over the years.
Originally such players were termed Shadows In The Light - Striker - Striker forwards, creative or deep-lying centre-forwards "sub forwards". More recently, two more variations of this old type of player have developed: the second, or shadow, or support, or auxiliary striker and, in what is in fact a distinct position unto its own, the number 10,  exemplified by Dennis Bergkamp who would play just in behind the striker Thierry Henry at Arsenal.
Other number 10s who play further back, such as Diego MaradonaRonaldinho and Zinedine Zidaneare often described as an attacking midfielder or the Shadows In The Light - Striker - Striker playmaker. The second striker position is a loosely defined and most often misapplied description of a player positioned somewhere between the out-and-out striker, whether he is a "target-man" or more of a "poacher", and the Number 10 or attacking midfielder, while possibly showing some of the characteristics of both.
In fact, a term coined by French advanced playmaker Michel Platinithe "nine-and-a-half", which he used to describe Roberto Baggio 's playing role, has been an attempt to become a standard in defining the position. Second or support strikers do not tend to get as involved in the orchestration of attacks as the Number 10, nor do they bring as many other players into play, since they do not share the burden of responsibility, functioning predominantly as assist providers.
The position of inside forward was popularly used in the late nineteenth and first half of the twentieth centuries. The inside forwards would support the centre-forward, running and making space in the opposition defence, and, as the passing game developed, supporting him with passes. The role is broadly analogous to the "hole" or second striker position in the modern game, Blues In The Night - Frank Sinatra - Frank Sinatra Sings For Only The Lonely here there were two such players, known as inside right and inside left.
In early 2—3—5 formations the inside-forwards would flank the centre-forward on both sides. With the advent of the "WM" formationthe inside forwards were brought back to become attacking midfielders, supplying balls to the centre-forward and the two attacking outside forwards — known as the outside right and outside left. In the modern game, inside forwards have either been pushed up front to become out-and-out Shadows In The Light - Striker - Striker in 4—3—3 formations or one has been switched back into midfield and the other up front in 4—4—2.
Many teams, however, still employ one of their strikers in a withdrawn role as a support forward for the main striker, in a role broadly similar to the inside forward.
An outside forward plays as the advanced forward on the right or left wing — as an outside right or outside lefttypically as part of a 2—3—5 formation or one of its variants. As football tactics have largely developed, and wingers have dropped back to become midfieldersthe terminology has changed and "outside forward" has become a historical term.
Many commentators and football analysts still refer to the wing positions as "outside right" and "outside left". A winger is an attacking player who is stationed in a wide position near the touchlines. They can be classified as forwards, considering their origin as the old "outside-forward" position, and continue to be termed as such in most parts of the world, especially in Latin and Dutch football cultures.
However, in the British game in which the 4—4—2 formation and its variants are most commonly used they are usually counted as part of the midfield. It is a winger's duty to beat opposing full-backsdeliver cut-backs or crosses from wide positions and, to a lesser extent, to beat defenders and score Not Now, Not Ever - RAH - The Truth Will Reveal Itself close range.
They are usually some of the quickest players in the team and usually have good dribbling skills as well. In Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese usage, the defensive duties of the winger have been usually confined to pressing the opposition fullbacks when they have the ball. Otherwise, a winger will drop closer to the midfield to make themself available, should their team win back the ball.
In British and other northern European styles of football, the wide-midfielder is expected to track back all the way to their own corner flag should their full-back require help, and also to track back their marker, as well as tucking into the midfield when the more central players Shadows In The Light - Striker - Striker trying to pressure the opposition for the ball. As these players grow older and lose their natural pace, they are frequently redeployed as Number 10s between the midfield and the forward line, where their well-honed ball control skills and improved reading of the game in the final third can serve to improve their teams' attacking options in tight spaces.
In recent years there has been a trend of playing inverted wingers — wide players stationed on the 'wrong' side of the pitch, in order to enable them to cut inside and shoot on their stronger foot and sometimes provide in-swinging crosses. This tactic was used by Frank Rijkaardwho, whilst at Barcelonamoved Lionel Messi from the left flank onto the right wing, initially against the player's wishes.
This allowed him to cut into the centre and shoot or cross with his left foot. The purpose of this is Évidemment - France Gall - Babacar it creates a problem for opposing centre-backs who can either follow the false 9, leaving space behind them for onrushing midfielders, forwards or wingers to exploit, or leaving the false 9 to have time and space to dribble or pick out a pass.
The term comes from the traditional number for centre-forwards nineand the fact that normally a centre-forward traditionally stayed near the line of defenders until they got an opportunity to move past them toward goal. Key attributes for a Shadows In The Light - Striker - Striker 9 are similar to those of a deep-lying striker: dribbling ability to take advantage of space between the lines, good short passing ability to link up with the midfield and vision to play through teammates making runs from deep to goal.
The first false 9 in a World Cup was Juan Peregrino Anselmo in the Uruguay national teamalthough he could not play the match against Argentina in the World Cup due to injury. Matthias Sindelar was the false 9 of the Wunderteam Shadows In The Light - Striker - Striker , the Austria national teamin Roma under manager Luciano Spalletti used Francesco Tottinominally an attacking midfielder or trequartistaup-front in an innovative "4—6—0" formation;  this was met with a run of 11 consecutive victories.
By the end ofthe False 9 had gone "mainstream" with many clubs employing a version of the system. Barcelona's Lionel Messi has been an exponent of the false 9 position to much success in recent years, first under coach Pep Guardiola and later under his successor Tito Vilanova.
A strike team is two or more strikers who work together. The history of football has been filled with many effective combinations. Three-man teams often operate in "triangles", giving a wealth of attacking options. Four-man packages expand options even more. Strikers must How High The Moon - Gene Norman - Just Jazz Volume 4 (Shellac) be flexible, and be able to switch roles at a moment's notice, between the first advanced penetrator Bealtine - Brad Mehldau Trio - House On Hillsecond deep-lying manoeuvre and third support and expansion, e.
Another example was the Queen Of The Ghetto - Al Wilson - Show And Tell Football played by the Dutch team in the s, where the ability of their players, and in particular Johan Cruyffto swap positions allowed a flexible attacking approach which opposition teams found difficult to effectively mark.
On average they scored a goal every 45 minutes — two goals per game from the three forwards. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from Shadow striker. Retrieved 17 August The Guardian.
