BRFCS Content Posted February 14, 2011 Share Posted February 14, 2011 Entertainment or End Results is all that matters? We thought that this week’s topic of the week should look at an issue which has caused heated debate on this messageboard and amongst Rovers fans in general, is being entertained more important or the end result even if that means playing pragmatic football? In December Rovers shocked the footballing world with the sacking of Sam Allardyce. Amongst the reasons given for his sacking was that the owners were not happy with the direction that he was taking the club and that the football was not entertaining. Under Sam Rovers were able to accumulate points on a consistent basis (particularly at Ewood) however the football on show could be described as one dimensional. After Sam’s sacking Steve Kean was appointed and the football that Rovers have played has been more progressive and pleasing on the eye, results have been mixed and yielded 11 points from 10 games. So the question GENERALLY speaking do people prefer a philosophy which was more pragmatic but almost guaranteed Premier League survival each season or the more entertaining progressive philosophy where the which adds more risks but the potential rewards are also greater.
