Yes. No point in even asking for examples, because you see them everywhere.
Again, no idea what you're on about. You've always had these players. Much like how any kind of formation, whether it's one with a 2-man midfield or 3, does have a distribution of roles.
Anyway, the death of this and that etc etc. is boring to read about and the "observations" are pretty much always wrong. It's usually the kind of stuff that's written by bad writers, like Jonathan Wilson.
