I sat right next to the dig out last night

One major thing I observed

Big Sam doesnít say a lot during a game, he allows the staff team he has built to do a lot of the detail managing of players during the game.

Over 5 different people plus Sam gave instructions to the players during the game.

Sam only shouted instructions when deemed necessary and also shouted at the 4th official!

This is a sign of a strong leader, allows his team to manage and gets involved when he needs to.

Very impressive.

In contract Paul clement didnít stop shouting instructions but this becomes ineffectual as the players familiarise the sound of his voice and start to autopilot ignore it.
In contrast to Sam, when he shouts and itís not often, you bloody well know and listen.
