Give up man do yourself a favour and go and watch Spurs or something.
I donít know the exact stats, but itís interesting that the most successful managers in Prem of lower league teams are those that are relentlessly focused on shape over style. Allardyce, Pulis, Hodgson, even Howe. As we learned under Pardew...being open and entertaining can get you 30 points by Christmas, it can also get you 10 points in the second half of a season.

Given what Hodgson is trying to achieve, which is to be all but safe by the end of March, I think he is approaching it the right way.
