West Ham boss Sam Allardyce dismisses criticism: ‘Possessions stats make me laugh, it’s a results business’
- May 1, 2014
On the football style curve, Sam Allardyce would be plotted in the ‘low possession, long ball’ quadrant.
The West Ham boss has never made any apologies for playing a pragmatic, result-first style-second game, and while he’s doing a decent job in table terms at West Ham, a section of Hammers fans are growing restless, and want to see some tippy-tappy football for their match tickets.
Allardyce couldn’t care less though, saying that possession stats make him laugh, and that the criticism only stems from results; when they win nobody complains.
Allardyce makes his philosophy clear: ‘It’s a results driven business’.
