You have missed the point. The point is the definition of those players. You probably have not read the conclusion. You form feeling before reading.

Referring, the link above, the three defenders are called LB and RB. You should read carefully the webpage.

Whoever wins the 2020 A-League champion will be the best at playing behind closed doors.

Whoever wins the A-League will be the best at playing behind closed doors

For a 4-3-3 formation, or a 4 defenders formation, there are 2 full backs two center backs. The 2 full backs are left-back and right-back.
For a formation with 3 defenders, like 3-4-3 or 3-5-2 etc, there is only one centre back who is supported by a right-back and a left-back.
There cannot be 3 center backs in a 3-defenders-formation. How can one being center while he/she is not adjacent to a right and left-back? No left or right, where comes center?
Your perspective is a bit obscured.
So far, not so many would call over-lapping-centre-back, but rather attacking-centre-back. For this, Jb below has mentioned Beckenbaur and Stefan Orcwik. But sadly, the best description of one of the best footballers ever in history, Beckenbaur, is “attacking sweeper”, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUTFKvrjN_Q
Ah…., in Beckenbaur’s best time, there was still a sweeper. A sweeper is the last player in the 4-3-3 formation. But would it be better to call it 1-3-3-3. Refer to one of the website http://gdfra.org.au/formations.htm.
But there is a formation really in 1-3-3-3, referring https://www.sportplan.net/drills/Hockey/Roles-and-Responsibilities/1-1-3-3-3-formation-HockRoles5.jsp
I am not a qualified soccer coach, so I do not find in detail the difference between a 4-3-3 (with a sweeper) and a 1-3-3-3.
I would rather describe “two-number-6” as quoted by one of the prominent bloggers here in this website.
In conclusion, they are not center backs.

Hello Jack George, Would you quote a reference? A webpage! Or a link, if they are centre backs.

Are they centre backs or they are full backs?

How much trouble is the A-League seriously in?

They hate the one who told RF to sign McDonald and Brown mid-season.

Fowler ridicules Roar's A-League critics

Redondo,
1) Brattan, McGree and O’shea are different types of players. McGree shoots and runs better. Brattan passes better but O’shea can be more creative.
2) If the import is better in value (price vs worth), he should not necessarily be a marquee player.
3) Preference should be given to locals? That mean to say no imports for all clubs.
4) Regarding “key metric”, it is just about high paid marquee players or not. In this respect, the obvious example is the performance of Melbourne Victory recently. They have not just 2 marquee players but also more than two senior national players. They are Kenny Athiu, Jakob Poulsen, Elvis Kamsoba, Migjen Basha and Adama Traoré. And they have more than 2 World Cup players: Ola Toivonen, Robbie Kruse, and Andrew Nabbout. Plus, there are numbers of U-xx national players. Plus, plus, another overseas player, Kristijan Dobras. But some say they may win the wooden spoon.
5) …
6) …
7) Easier to optimise defence than attack? Should be optimising the balance of defence and attack that matters, I’m afraid.
Conclusion:
All fans like to have a club owner who does not mind to spend big and having loss, Chelsea many years ago for example. Hope a very rich person can buy Brisbane Roar out and spend big.

Don't be sucked in by recent form, raw Roar still have to improve

O, I am such a poor researcher. But Phoenix should play there always.

Ufuk Talay believes the Phoenix have won some respect

The home attendance of Phoenix has suddenly jumped from 8503 (round 16, a win over Jets) to 15347 (round 19)? 80% up! Reason? A boost because of winning?
But they won WSW 2-0 in round 14?

ps
Maybe, Fowler should bring Milligan back if he has no hidden injury.

Sunday's clash in Ballarat is the grudge match of the season

Interestingly, I have found that Mark Milligan (the has been Socceroos’ captain) is playing in League One. And his Southend United F.C. is about to be relegated.

Melbourne Victory fields Brisbane Roar Football Club’s youth team?

Perth Glory and Bruno Fornaroli are back, but Melbourne Victory are goooooone

There were good marquee players like Alessandro Del Piero.

Have we all just given up on the A-League?

I prepared to say this at the end of this season but it may be the time to do so.
Along with Stuart’s saying of difficulty of tipping Fowler’s Roar, Fowler has been changing rapidly and frequently. That may be the reason of tense in tipping Roar’s performance.
It is yet early to tell whether Fowler is struggling to find the best lining up and formation or not. Or, simply, adjusting according to the situation and/or the opponents is his STYLE of coaching. Anyhow, he changes a lot. He may substitute at half time, not at around 70 minutes.
He has 4-4-2 (R1), 3-1-4-2 (R3), 3-4-3 (R4), 3-4-3 (R5), 3-4-3 (R6), 5-3-2 (R7), 4-1-4-1 (R8), 4-4-1-1 (R9). 4-2-3-1 (R10), 3-4-3 (R12), 3-4-3 (R13), 3-4-3 (R14), 3-4-3 (R15), and 3-4-3 (R16).
Anyhow, the bringing back of Corey Brown shows he knows the problem.
He cannot have a style as he is new in senior coaching. However, hope it is his style as it makes unpredictability.

This tipster’s tense relationship with Robbie Fowler and Brisbane Roar

D’Agostino has 35 games for Roar but just 3 goals.

The Olyroos qualifying for Tokyo 2020 is worth celebrating

I rather see a coach getting rookies to run around than a coach getting old players in the small box to defend. In the long run, the latter coach has closed his entrance into the list of great coaches.
In this season, noticeably there are at least two teams have rather old players. One is WU and the other Glory. The other two teams that are likely to win the premiership and championship are Sydney FC and Melbourne City.
Talking about two, Melbourne Victory has 2 marquee players while Brisbane Roar has none. No mistake, none not one.
If playing conservative style, defend-and-counter-attack, is so unbearable, Melbourne Victory’s fans and officials are just being positive and patient. They have not just 2 marquee players but also more than two senior national players. They are Kenny Athiu, Jakob Poulsen, Elvis Kamsoba, Migjen Basha and Adama Traoré. And they have more than 2 World Cup players: Ola Toivonen, Robbie Kruse, and Andrew Nabbout. Plus, there are numbers of U-xx national players. Plus, plus, another overseas player, Kristijan Dobras. Anyhow, how can they have so many good and overseas players?
Nonetheless, Marco should be given at least 2 years to get his ideology right, same as Ange Postecoglou, same as Robbie Fowler.
Hope the saying here can kill the pain of many Brisbane Roar’s fans and officials for 2 years.
Haha!

Is attacking football more important to the A-League than winning?
