Big Mouth - a genuine innovator (on on par with Arsene Wenger) was a master of finding balance between physicality and flair

Michael Cox "The Mixer" and Sam Allardyce's autobiography are very enlightening on his innovations (based on NFL) are very much overlooked to the foreign influence led by Arsene Wenger then.

Here are some quotes from big Sam:

"Wenger seemed to want a rule where Arsenal should be allowed to do what they wanted with the ball, without us being allowed to tackle them. There was no credit [from the media] for the fact we'd spent all week studying how to nullify their skillful players and not let them have a second ball. It was a skill finding their weakness and how to exploit them."

More to come ....
