Spain does this now. Plan A is passing the ball through the front six, while plan B uses the pace of Pedro, Torres, and Navas to beat teamsOur plan B is sheer pace. I'm not sure any one else picked up on this but Barcelona used to do this with Eto as their top striker to great effect.
Ibrahimovic was brought in to provide a different kind of plan B, which did not turn out that well despite his decent goal record.
In our case, suarez is playing the messi role and Borini is meant to play the Eto role and provide pace as a plan B.
All comparisons between us and barcelona are moot though, since the circumstances and expectations are different. The only thing in common is the coach's ideas on the style of football. We need our senior players to start performing, in order for the younger ones to make the transition smoothly.
