Playing devil’s 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 don’t even remember. Martinez revived it for a season but that’s about it. Even Kendall’s 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. We’re a working class club and we demand our players graft and show passion. Allerdyce’s 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 we’ve had to endure for the last few seasons.
