False number nines

I'm a little worried by Spain's Euro win playing without strikers - it might give Big Sam ideas. Still, at least West Ham pioneered the concept of the "false number nine" or "ghost striker" with John Radford, Mike Small, David Kelly, Alex Bunbury, Mike Newell and others too numerous to mention.

For Fabregas read Nolan, Iniesta Noble. Stop it. Having taken a look at the official website, my question is - how many ways is it possible to photograph a human in a swimming pool. Waterpolo matches, teambuilding, yeah we get it. Enough already.

And for Pique read Winston Reid... they must have got the pool photos for nothing... strange no shots of Big Sam in his trunks.
