It's weird but having Big Sam and him being able to organize us just a little bit kind of goes to show why we didn't really need him in the first place.
Just watched his interview for EvertonTV . Asked about how pleased is he with Mason Holgate and he says "Very pleased apart from the fact he's too good looking to be a centre half." I'm warming to him
It was strange listening to his approach the other night in the pre match press conference.He was saying that all he does is embed the basics and he gives the team the freedom to let their individual qualities come out. I always had him down as someone who micromanages everything, but it doesn't look that way.
I suspect he does micromanage the basics though. He definitely prefers percentage football. I think i remember hearing Kevin Davies talking about he was going to get shouted at for having a low-percentage shot from outside the area, even though he scored. Tongue in cheek obviously, but the reason behind the joke was there.I reckon training at the moment is polar opposite to Martinez. Won't be much ball work (as is evident by our inability to string passes together at the start of games) and will just be drilling them to death.
The move for the goal was yesterday actually quite good, about 15-20 passes out from the back and a couple of nice flicks. It's definitely risk averse percentage football though.
Yeah apparently doesn’t even coach that much himself, his team does all that.
Amazing what introducing players to each other can achieveThrow in a reminder of what position they play and you've got a winning formulaAgainst Huddersfield and Newcastle likeReckon we'll bladder Swansea as well even
