And he made no such reference to it being a different role to what our supporters regard as a number 10. You took somebody to task on here when they referred to him playing as a number 10, and you did the same when someone else described his position as an AMC, yet that is clearly the position he was playing. You've constantly referred to him playing as a third central midfielder but everyone else, Dyche included, has recognised otherwise.
Pretty comfortable that if you read Dyche's comments from this interview last season, its quite obvious that he thinks the "number 10" badge is a bit of a misnomer, and that hes broadly asking Hendrick to operate in a midfield role (he went as far as to point out that too much emphasis is put on how team sheets are written on paper and there's a big difference between how it looks in and out of possession for a start). So im not sure you're correct there at all. But anyway, pretty pointless diversion from the point of this discussion.
