After West Ham made half-time changes to see past Hull City this weekend, manager Sam Allardyce said changing to a more direct style was the reason for their victory, reports Sky
Hull City were on top in the first-half against the Hammers, but still went into the break goalless. After the break, it was the hosts who started to turn the game in their favour, and went ahead early into the second-half.
“All this tippy-tappy stuff everybody keeps on going about as the right way to play football, well, getting the ball into the opposition box as quickly as you can with quality is definitely sometimes the best way forward. That’s what we did in the second half and that’s why we won the game,” said Allardyce.
