    Talking 77-conjure s.th out of thin air

    Dear all

    Hello

    What does it mean when they say?
    Conjure s.th out of thin air in the following sentence.
    (He must scrap his own tactical beliefs and accommodate a playmaker who can conjure something out of thin air.)
    Thanks in advance

    Matilda

    It means that they need someone who can make something appear out of nowhere. I presume this is about football, or a similar sport, in which case the playmaker would be able to find an opportunity or see a chance that was not obvious to other people.
