Given the dearth of strikers in Brazil at the moment (which in itself is a shock) I just don't understand why they don't play Neymar as the main striker (false nine and all that). He'd be more skilled than any of the false 9 options Spain used over the years. With that they could have : Cesar - Alves, Luiz, Silva, Marcelo - Fernandinho, Gustavo - Ramires, Oscar (central), Willian - Neymar. That is an excellent team, and with that you get a trio who play together regularly for Chelsea behind Neymar, Oscar back in his natural position, two wide men who will run all week, and and strong central midfield pairing. If they need to chase a game one of the CM's can come off and Oscar can fall back there, with any of the attacking talent coming on. Makes sense to me anyways!

wo things. First, I can't stop reading your name as 'Dane Bowers'. Second, you used the words 'philosophy' and 'Redknapp' in the same sentence.
