Frankly, I'd rather grind out stacks of boring 1-0 victories and finish 5th than play free-flowing football and finish 7th. It's a results business first and foremost, attractive style of play second. I would say that 80% of Hughes's team performances were far from pleasing on the eye, although when things picked up he signalled his intention to play more attractive football.
I will be surprised if Allardyce gets the team playing as negatively as Bolton could play but I was a bit concerned when I read a comment saying something along the lines of; "we need to get 1-0 wins instead of winning by three clear goals". I hope he just meant that we need to be defensively water tight so that when we are in a tight match we don't concede and can hold on for a 1-0.
