Sam Allardyce led Everton to an eighth place in the Premier League but was still dismissed from the club Wednesday. Despite positive results, worries about his playing style were never lost, Adam Bate wrote following the 1-0 victory over Newcastle last month …
"What was wrong with our style today?"
Sam Allardyce delivered it with a smile, but the confusion in his voice was obvious. His Everton squad just finished Newcastle's four-game winning streak with a 1-0 win at Goodison Park. Nevertheless, the questions about the style of play of the team remain open.
"We have completely dominated the game and overtaken the opponents in their half," said Allardyce Sky Sports . "Some of our passports have gone astray, but in fairness you can not really blame me for that, right? I do not spend the ball out there, the boys."
He added, "We are eighth in the league, compared with fifth from the bottom which tells us that we can make her better. "
It is true that Everton's preliminary values were superior. The home team made more passes and had more possession. The three points have actually lifted her over Leicester to eighth place in the table. In fact, Allardyce missed an even more impressive statistic.
With victory over Newcastle, Everton has gained 30 points since Allardyce's appointment in late November. They have been among the top six clubs in the Premier League since his arrival. About Arsene Wenger's arsenal. Only four points fewer than Antonio Contes Chelsea
For a club that has been out of the top six in the last three seasons and fights in the lower half of the table before Allardyce hits the Finch Farm, it looks (19659009) But for some followers still look awful.
"We'll all be garbage if we lose next week, but if we win, we'll be fine," Allardyce said. "So we just have to keep winning so we do not get the criticism, keep doing what I'm doing, keep going and keep getting better."

Allardyce's unpopularity already impairs the club's preparation for the next one Season It was sent to a group of supporters who asked them to evaluate the manager's ability to get the most out of the team.
The former chairman of the Football Writers' Association, Andy Dunn, called Everton " the craziest people's club in the country "and it's proud monikers like the People's Club that puts Allardyce's stay in the spotlight. That's the big old team The School of Science
The Former Everton manager Roberto Martínez was well aware of these traditions in his years at Goodison Park, and in his first season he brought the Premier League's record record to the points, before settling in his second and third seasons with this task.
"Does the style play a role at Everton? Yes, he does," Martinez argued while playing the game for Monday Night Football . "Once you look at the science school and the titles and silverware you have, the competitiveness of the football club demands a style."
"Then you'll get that style. Will you win first or will you have the patience to develop this style that will give you trophies and silverware? "
This is the key point for Allardyce, the underlying figures during his time in Everton are that they provide much evidence as to why his belief in his methods continues to elude him even though he has won most of his games at Goodison Park.
While Everton dominated the ball in the first half against Newcastle, Theo Walcott's winning goal, it was the only goal scored by the team in the second half, and that was typical of Allardyce's time.
Everton Only Swansea has tried fewer shots, only Swansea had fewer shots on target, Everton is also among the last two for chances and dribbles under Allardyce.
It was enough to get the shots Results to help the team climb the table, albeit with a negative goal difference, but it was not enough Demand is down more ambition. What is needed is a football brand that offers greater hope for progress.
