I think we can and have played both ways well since Martinez came, but I also think we look far better counter attacking at speed and exploiting weaknesses. There's obviously room for improvement but we're a good attacking team either way that creates chances in abundance, as the stats prove, we certainly don't lack for creating promising positions in the oppositions final third as was suggested. We may not always be clinical but even against the most stubbornly defensive teams we create chances.
I think we are clinical though.
Don't we have the highest chance conversion rate in the league?
I think we create a small number of good chances which our good finishers put away. We have the occasional game like Norwich or Stoke where we miss a few but on the whole I don't think we come away from many games where we've missed bucket loads of chances.
But I don't think that, certainly since the 1st season, that we look regularly convincing against organised sides.
If someone makes it an open game then great - we do look very good.
