There's definitely something about seeing someone in Everton gear, sat in the dugout at Goodison that changes things.I'm not a fan of his, as people know, but I can already feel that changing and softening. Does that make me a hypocrite? Probably yes, but there we are.
I old you this Big Sam feller was special!Onwards and upwards
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
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.
Whatís easy for one may not be easy for another
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.
Hope the players throw him under the bus in that case.
