Playing devilís advocate somewhat; what is this obsession with playing beautiful football? How many teams in the premier league are silky ball playing teams?
The School of Science is a thing most of donít even remember. Martinez revived it for a season but thatís about it. Even Kendallís teams were all about lumping it up to the big man and having quality players make something happen in the final third.
Nothing gets Goodison bouncing like us kicking the shit out of the opposition, winning the physical battles. Weíre a working class club and we demand our players graft and show passion. Allerdyceís will give us that. And getting the ball forward early and turning the opposition round could well be a welcome antidote to the horrible, boring as fuck possession football weíve had to endure for the last few seasons.
As Allardyce said today when asked what style of football he would bring, "Hopefully a winning-style"...
That's all I want too. Pretty football is a bonus.
