@Colin_swansea I agree wholeheartedly with your last couple of posts.I believe it is a cultural issue. Unfortunately, though we’ve seen massive progress in the last 20/30 years with the early pioneers like Gullit at Chelsea and Wenger at Arsenal right through to the likes of Klopp and Guardiola now, there is still a dinosaur minority holding British football back.I’m talking about the likes of Allardyce, Pulis, Mark Hughes. They were all brought up on the cabbage patch pitches of the 70s and 80s where let’s face it, you had to bloody kick it up in the air to get any joy. The problem with them is, they are resistant to change, football has moved on, they have not. Sadly, some chairmen in the last 20 years are equally prehistoric, giving them jobs because of some perceived notion ‘they get results’. Which is interesting, because in the last 5 or 10 years, their records are largely atrocious. The most disappointing thing about them is that their ability to linger and con chairmen is they have given rise to a new generation of less than enlightened coaches like Monk, Dyche, and Rowett. They all talk a good game, but their teams are all awful 80s throwbacks, direct descendants of the Allardycian and Pulisian school of thought.Until these deeply ingrained attitudes die out, British football will always be lagging behind the rest of Europe who understand that it’s called football for a reason, not headball.
