Waiting in the wings for the first mid/low-level Premier League manager to get sacked, Sam Allardyce continues to kill some time out in Qatar with Richard Keys and Andy Gray on beIN SPORTS.
Analysing this evening's Premier League clash between Chelsea and Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, the former England manager lamented an error-strewn game; the worst he had seen between two top Premier League clubs.
17 years in the Premier League and I've never seen two top teams make so many unforced errors, for me.
Unsure whether it was the coaches to blame, or the players themselves, it soon became apparent that the former was squarely on Allardyce's mind as the real culprits here.
We're being brainwashed into playing the game the right way, we're being brainwashed.
When asked by Gray what is the right way to approach football, Allardyce vouched for the simple response; "Winning is the right way."
Compounding a previous opinion he has shared regarding the ill-advised propensity of Premier League to attempt to mimic Pep Guardiola's style at Manchester City, Allardyce believed most players were ultimately ill-equipped to carry out such instructions.
To the point of alarming cliche, Allardyce then moved swiftly on to the plight of the British manager in this modern, unforgiving landscape:
There's less and less British than usual, there's less and less British managers, less and less British players, less and less British coaches, less and less British academy players.
Unsurprisingly, the English-born presenter Keys agreed with Allardyce's concerns, lamenting the globalisation of football - from his seat in a Qatari studio, where the televising of English football determines his relevancy.
