Allardyce: All I've done is made things easier

Everton boss Sam Allardyce says all that was needed to turn around the fortunes at the club was to simplify the game.

All credit to him for turning the results around and bringing confidence back to some shattered players. In the longer term he will be judged on whether he can bring a return to the style Evertonians like to see.

This Everton style is a myth. We have never really had one.
Im old enough to go back to the mid 70s and our teams always did whatever was necessary to win.

The manager with the most noticeable style was Roberto Martinez and it was completely ineffective, possession for possessions sake.

Would love us to play some football and control a game with the ball, at some point.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

I think if we do, I could see us reaching the semis at least.

Tbf I think Sam does too. He's mentioned several times after games that we need to do more in possession.

What he definitely doesnt want is slow, meandering backwards passing that ends up at the keeper; as, unless you are really good at getting out of tight situations, you end up getting deeper and deeper and the keeper just wellies it away.

This is exacerbated by the fact that the forwards have had to drop deep with the rest of the team.

Which is why I think Schneiderlin and Gueye cannot play together. Neither offer anything constructive with the ball and Schneiderlin offers very little without it either. As soon as Davies comes on Rooney drops deep and Davies moves forwards, and vice versa, which means we have interchangeable options with the ball. I'd much rather have Sig and Rooney in the middle swapping positions as Davies, for all his promise, still doesn't actually deliver much and with a natural outlet like Bolasie on the left we can start to threaten.
If we can then get an upgrade on Lennon and DCL we might actually start to look as if we can get a foothold in games again.

Based on absolutely fuck all really, other than a splash of wishful thinking and knowing that our confidence levels will be up and we will have players back from injury who will make us even better and harder to beat.

But you are only a relatively new fan. The Harvey,Ball,Kendall side had style. Oh, and even in your early days if you could manage to see over the wall,  Manager Kendall's 80's team had style.  Can't remember any others though.

Kendall's philosophy is close to that of Allardyce. Get the ball into the oppositions half early and play from there.
