look up any word, like lemonparty:
The false nine is a footballer who starts in the position of a striker - who in 1-11 numbers traditionally wears the number nine shirt. Rather than running forwards however, the false nine stays where he is or moves backwards; therefore playing a midfield role and fooling the opposition into thinking he's an attacking player.
Wrexham are using a false nine up-front - that's why they're winning.
