Slammed Dunc ?
I must admit to raising a smile at seeing big Dunckin’ Disorderly not only taking charge of a Premiership team, but gaining the three points in the style he did.
In a game that often produces robots the character is usually welcome, and a character he is.
Despite his joining our rivals who since went bust I found him engaging and his own man full stop.
He did the crime and did the time.
I never thought I would see the weekends scenes though.
Its now very clear what he said to the eleven before heading up that tunnel.
“ You wanna start the next game you work your balls off ! “
His charges put in a record 37 tackles during the game. That doesn’t sound like much but at the very top tier its cutting off the space that pass would be played into negates the big numbers.
In his first game in charge he broke the tackle record!
In plain talk ,, he sent out the dogs of war!
They never stopped!
They slammed into everything and put it all on the line,, and took the points home most importantly.
The Everton Way apparently.
Now big Dunk admits he doesn’t have eyes on the job which is the smarter move should his original position with the youth remain there for him. But if he should gain a few wins and catch the bug dont be surprised if the big ruffian decides to test himself full time against the Prem’s best.
However the style of play his troops produced is very far from what is normally seen on the tv screen from the top tier. Silky football, with special moments from the globes elite is the norm, not his Championship style Up and At Em footie.
But he won!
Looking back at his managers, and thinking who would he had taken the most onboard from, then Walter springs to mind. He ruled through fear.
Surely that wouldn’t fly these days,,not with the modern prima donnas of the Prem sitting staring at you.
I am very curious to see just how his next few games go and whether or not his squad embrace their back to basics give it everything instructions for more than a few games before they have had enough.
The rocket up the backside simply isnt enough or many of us could be in a dugout somewhere.
A yeller who rules through fear could be found anywhere.
After seeing success under that method while wearing light blue it seems he will attempt to repeat that method.
That was 20 years ago with the best players in the league and looking for that style to pay dividends on Sunday at Old Trafford would be folly for the big lad.
I still expect him to try though, after all fear worked for Walter.
And I expect him to fail.
Thats soo yesterday.
Dunc will get slammed not the other way around.
And its best for football.
