The Numbers Game

Ever wonder what a player is talking about when they call themselves a number 8?  Or what about a 6, or the coveted 10?  We break down all of the various player numbers, what they mean positionally, and why some teams may not play with a 6 while others have TWO of them!  Overall it was a fun conversation with a little bit of insight that you can use to impress the soccer novices in your life.

But what do you think?  What number is Dos Santos or King Kenny?  Do the Hounds have a number 10?  Let us know!
