The risk with Burnley is too big imo, they exist purely to stay in the league and heís got a system that works very well for that. If he had more reliable transfer budgets year after year maybe he could start to take some risks but he doesnít so he hasnít. Maybe thatís not a great sign that heís taking the safe path of least resistance, but right now we need that st Everton for a bit, and the risk that dyche doesnít have another level to reach offensively is less of a risk than we get someone in who canít achieve safety and we sink.
Can you see a totally different approach though?
Can you think of anyone who really flip flops from one club to the next based on the players?
Yes thatís what Burnley need and thatís why heís been successful at it, because thatís what he is.
Allardyce had some (way more) skilful players at Bolton than Dyche has but his core approach was get it in the box as many times as possible. Theyíd do some good stuff some times but they werenít consistently easy on the eye.
And yes, I get our risk if the new manager fails but are we panicked that much, that we canít escape some of the absolute dross in the PL with what we should be appointing, ie a manager worthy of £4-6m a year salary?
