Jacklours don't worry, you're not bursting any bubbles over here, buddy. Please reread Thomas' post that I referenced. I was merely corroborating his statement with some player history. He was conditioned to play a specific role in his formative years between two highly skilled natural goalscorers. He digs and feeds. Now, ask him to play their role. Would it not be a difficult adjustment?
