    Strange football parlance

    Post by SawleyRam on Wed 26 Oct 2016, 11:14 am

    Reading an article earlier on I came across some strange football parlance and had to "Google" them to understand. No wonder the football world is disappearing up it's own a*se.

    1 - What the heck is a "False 10"?
    2 - What in the world is "Gegenpressing"?
    3 - What the hell is a "Midfield Shuttler"?
    4 - Where is a "Regista"?
    5 - WTF is a "Suffoco"

    Thanks to Google I now know the answers but how many of you know without that help? Nurse

    Without the benefit of Google my quesses would be:

    1 - A 'False 10' is dress label for obese size 18 women
    2 - 'Gegenpressing' is a new dance originating in North Korea  
    3 - 'Midfield Shuttler' is a crude northern term best not described here
    4 - 'Regista' is a small land-locked country in central Africa
    5 - 'Suffoco' is an East Anglian term of abuse

    I bet I'm not far out.

    1 - What the heck is a "False 10"? Knew that
    2 - What in the world is "Gegenpressing"? Obviously a German term and I would guess that they mean "pressin the presser" but I would be wrong. It is what we would call pressing.
    3 - What the hell is a "Midfield Shuttler"? I had no idea but it is, apparently, what we know as a box to box midfielder (Bryson at his best).
    4 - Where is a "Regista"? Had a guess at this one and got it right. Pirlo is a Regista. The MF man who pulls the strings, the director.
    5 - WTF is a "Suffoco" I had no idea but it is the sacrificial lamb charged with nullifying the Regista. Pretty much the role Cloughie gave McGovern when we played Man U. He was told to stay 1 to 2 yards off Best and always between Best and the ball. Best didn't live up to his name against us. McG was given the same role with Alan Ball.

    At the best these are just "buzz words" in modern parlance to age old tactics that MadAmster has alluded to in a previous post, gone are the days when we called a spade a spade, no wonder some modern day footballers look mesmerised and bewildered when tactics change.

    The only one i know is the Gegenpressing which was invented by Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool. Which to my knowledge, means to hunt in packs to get the ball back as quickly as possible once lost. I've heard of a false 9 but not a false 10???

    I love some of the answers on here. Forget the serious ones, I needed to reach for my incontinence pants when I saw Bramhall's post.

    I think I remember them from my Sunday league days

    1 - What the heck is a "False 10"? - the bloke who once had a trial for Leicester City U12s and believes that he is the greatest player ever to grace the pitch, but just prances around moaning a lot.
    2 - What in the world is "Gegenpressing"? - that's what big Dave the centre half is doing after ten minutes of the game - apparently he had a dodgy curry, but we all know it was the 10 pints of Carling.
    3 - What the hell is a "Midfield Shuttler"? -  he's the skinny bloke who runs and runs and runs and runs. He hardly ever touches the ball, but he runs a lot.
    4 - Where is a "Regista"? - that's the office where Nick, the boz-eyed full back is getting married next month and he won't stop bloody talking about it.
    5 - WTF is a "Suffoco" - that's the initiation ceremony for new players. It basically involves being pinned to the floor while fat Colin the goalie lies on top of them.

    Basically there is nothing new apart from the names given. Gegenpressing is what they call a full court press in basketball, a tactic used in my younger B'ball days. It is a task that I have used both as player and coach here in Holland for more than a quarter of a century. Here they call it "druk zetten". Not invented by Klopp.

    #5 - The suffoco, possibly a bastardisation of suffocating as that is what you do to the target man, suffocate him of the ball.

    Nothing new? Not really, my owd fella always said that the old "short back and sides" hairstyle would come back into fashion. I always laughed at the suggestion. He was right though, it is back in style............ not for me though, short back and sides when you are naturally short on top.... LOL roll

    As Sawley, so rightly put, merely new buzz words for old gear.................

    Never heard of 'druk zetten'. Funny that, living in England and all, and that no Dutch manager to my knowledge has employed that tactic in English football. The term 'Gegenpressing' was, to the best of my knowledge, invented by Klopp at Borussia Dortmund. I agree it is the equivalent of a 'full court press' in basketball though.
