Big club mentality

We constantly hear that line from El Pel and he gets very annoyed and frustrated when our players perform as they do against wimbledon/bournemouth/wolves and so on so what can he do too change those players who simply refuse to not believe in his idea and do not believe a club like ours can or ever will be able to perform like a big club which in El Pels mind is to go out regardless of the opposition and go to win not snatch a draw or roll over and let the other team win.
The reason Teams like citeh etc win is because there managers refuse to accept and think of any other result and yes of course they have top top players but have you noticed that any who are not producing are simply out of the side no matter who they are and such ruthlessness has worked on the likes of Aguerro/sane//sterling all household names and walk into any side but they had a rude awakening and if you don't produce on the pitch you are out and that drove those players on now to be better than they ever were.
If players perform and get beat this you accept as the other team on the day were better than you but players going out already beaten before a balls been kicked is totally unacceptable and try as he might with some of our current squad we simply do not produce enough decent displays specially away from home so where will he start the culling in the long summer ahead? and where does he find the players he wants with the mindset he wants to produce a much more consistent side? injuries of which we have had and get too many El Pel has a big summer ahead reshaping and revamping certain parts of the squad if he expects next season too be any different to this one after all it is WEST HAM.

I reckon it's down to the managers ,if you look at the top 2 for instance their style of play evolved when the new Bose's came in specially shity , personally I think their style of play is one dimensional it's based on keeping the ball and if you loose it getting it back within the 6 second rule ,an idea Pep instigated at Barca ,to me it becomes boring shite tipy tapy ,flick and go ,it can soon lead to running out of ideas and and a kind of panic when it's not going as planned ,if you look at Their match against the Germans the other night it became obvious they were in trouble when they went 2-1 down and would have settled for a draw .
Sometimes there's a lot to said for the old big Sam style ,route one (never thought I'd ever say that) ,looking at the two matches Shitty were on the lucky side ,once they scored the equaliser their re asserted their dominance to go on and win it ,on the other match Bayen got exactly what they came for o-o .
One last thing ,is anyone else driven half round the twist by those fuppin drums ?,hope it never raises it's ugly head in our prem , nosie fuppers

yes burkie i agree. i think the best managers are able to adapt their styles. this new thing of sarri and guardiola whereby its 'we play this way' game after game - you get found out, sides are able to come with a game plan. surely good footballers should be able to play a variety of ways? i think sides like bayern who mix it up, sometimes pass, pass, sometimes direct and long are the best sides. you can't combat sides that throw everything at you.

This match is the perfect one to prove this theory imo. A Fulham side who are yet to win on the road in the league this season, and have the worst away record in the Premier League. West Ham teams are notorious for giving struggling teams a leg up.
