To some hes a long-ball manager who plays 19th century football, but those who know Sam Allardyce well describe a different character. Nike Huarache Sale . A picture emerges of an expert man manager with a passion for sports science, statistics and psychology.Here, with the help of his former players, we take a look at the aspects of the game that Allardyce uses to gain every advantage available… Game plansThe England DNA initiative highlights the importance of game strategy and the need to devise a specific tactical plan for each fixture before making relevant tactical changes during the match itself. There was little evidence of that against Iceland at Euro 2016 and Allardyces former player and coach, Phil Brown, doesnt believe he would make that mistake. Phil Brown formed a good partnership with Allardyce at Bolton He knows exactly what to do in any given circumstance, Brown told Sky Sports. That is where we let ourselves down in the Euros. The game against Iceland, I thought we looked devoid of ideas, it looked as if we did not have a gameplan. Sam would never go into a game without a gameplan and certainly a change of plan, if something went wrong.Sports scienceAllardyce had a spell in the United States with the Tampa Bay Rowdies midway through his playing career and the experience had a significant impact. As he recounted in his autobiography, the sight of three masseurs was three more than he had been used to in England and he took much of what he learnt there about conditioning into management.

As Kevin Nolan told The Independent in 2013: I knew Sam would give me my best chance of prolonging my career for as long as I can.A host of experienced names from abroad enjoyed success under Allardyce at Bolton.

A look at some of Allardyces classic touch-line moments as a manager When Michael Bridges joined Bolton from Leeds in 2004, he was astonished. He opened my eyes to a whole different side of football - the nutrition, the analysis, the way he monitored the players, Bridges told the Sunderland Echo. Wed have studies on the opposition players, wed have seminars on nutrition. Sam was streets ahead of his time.Statistical analysisThe innovations in terms of sports science have also been evident in Allardyces use of data. Building on his experiences in the States, he was one of the first to make use of ProZone and introduced a host of analysts into football. Gavin Fleig is now Manchester Citys global lead for talent management but started as a performance analyst for Allardyces Bolton. Allardyce honed his use of data during his long spell in charge of Bolton According to Soccernomics: Fleig recalled that Bolton used to score 45 to 50 per cent of their goals from set-pieces, compared to a league average of about a third. Fleig said: We would say, If a defender clears the ball from a long throw, where will the ball land? Well, this is the area it most commonly lands. Right, well thats where well put our man.Allardyce is still looking for that edge. Everybody seems to be intent on how far they run and how fast they run, he told Sky Sports. But youve got other elements that you must calculate with it - where they run, where they receive the ball, how many interceptions theyve made, how many passes theyve made, who theyve made the passes to.Jay-Jay Okocha worked with Allardyce for four years at Bolton between 2002 and 2006 and even a mercurial talent like the Nigerian could not escape this commitment to utilising data. There was nowhere to hide, Okocha told Sky Sports. Hell tell you everything when it comes to stats. Everything was for your own good.

He really takes his time to get to know players very well and he builds brilliant relationships. You want to do well for him. I still speak to him regularly, even now. I am just delighted he has got the job.Much of that is down to simple interpersonal skills but theres a framework to it as well. Wed sit down with psychologists to set goals, realistic targets, not dreams, which I thought was brilliant, recalled Bridges. It did me the world of good psychologically.
