Seeing a lot of comments about how people would rather see a boring one nil win than an attacking one nil loss.
I really don't get this, have Man C not just shown us all that you can play attacking exciting football and still win games.
This after all is supposed to be an entertainment buisness.
SA had the perfect opportunity last night to play an attacking formation, and dump the two holding players. However he stuck to what he knows, and would probably have been happy with a draw.
If he is here next season then expect more of the same, because he won't change.

I said on Twitter last night Newcastle fans were the best I have seen at goodison this season but their team was the worst I have seen it was like watching us 10 men behind the ball hoping a long punt or a set piece comes off and that's why we beat them Sam plays the same team as he always does and again 36500 homes fans were bored stiff.

The problem with playing defensively for the majority of the match, a bit like Burnley. It is a very small margin between winning, drawing and losing a game. Burnley have shown that when things are going your way they accumulate points but they are also prone to prolonged bad spells when things aren't.
We were similar under moyes where we drew far too many games. If you have a go you're much more likely to go on a good winning run home and away. Something I can't remember us doing for many a year.

I have no idea where this thought that you can only win if you play defensively. To think this you must be an absolute idiot!

Take a look at the top 6 or 7 teams in every league in the world and 99% will be teams that go out to play football and score goals. Take a look at the bottom and a massive majority will be your Stokes, WBA and the like.

With Sam's style of play we will always be below the top six but with a manager looking to play football and go for the win we may just challenge the top six.

BJU you have not grasped the thread of the posts we are not saying you can only win if you play defensively but we would rather win than loose. If you ask any of us if we can win playing great football we would take that over boring football any day of the week we just want to see a winning team.

SA90 I think it is you that is misunderstanding if you think for one minute we will be a top 6 club the way Big Sam plays.
We will be at best mid table until all our best players have left or retired and then we will become another Sunderland as we will not be able to attract good replacements, even with Moshiri's millions as who, apart from mercenaries, will want to be associated with playing like we have
Big Sam has squeezed the enthusiasm/ life out of the majority of the fans and the team/ club will soon follow.

bw2412 still not grasped the point. I have never stated we would be a top 6 side the way SA plays. I am not defending SA in any shape or form what I am saying is for me results are more important than the style of play his methods have bought reasonable results and that's more important than defensive tactics crap media statements and belligerent attitude towards any criticism. If you are still unsure I don't particularly like SA being our manager I don't really like the way we are playing football under his stewards ship I am not a great fan to say the least of his interactions with the media. However, if he continues to win or draw and not loose fixtures, which meant we won trophies achieved a CL place I would be okay to have him in charge.

you had me until your last sentence 'which meant we won trophies achieved a CL place.
Even you in the start of your post said 'I never said we would be a top 6 side the way he plays'
As a club we are at a crossroads. Sam is going to go into a meeting with Farhad and say one year contract not enough and I need an extension to give clarity to everyone. If we give him what he wants we are resigned to mid table, dire football, be on the decline for a couple of more years.
If we let him see out his current contract what guarantee do we have that any players he buys are players any new manager will want, any players we sell are players a new manager would want to lose.
Sam, to my mind has shown no inclination to develop the club, motivate the players or do anything other than stroke his ego and elevate his own opinion of himself.
I am convinced he doesn't want to stay, he wants his payoff and will then go on holiday until the next club panics and requires his services.
Keeping him on would be one of the biggest mistakes we could make.
