Martinez: No long balls at Everton

Everton manager Roberto Martinez insists he will stick to his principles to make the “big changes” he feels will bring success to the Toffees.

Roberto Martinez has kept faith the the team that drew at Norwich.
Roberto Martinez remains unbeaten since becoming Everton manager.

O'Farrell: Pienaar a loss

Martinez, who replaced David Moyes at Goodison Park in June, wants to develop an adventurous style of football with the emphasis on possession. 

The Spaniard is unbeaten since taking charge at Everton, following up three Premier League draws with a 1-0 victory over Chelsea last Saturday.

The former Swansea and Wigan boss is adamant that he would never tell a defender to launch a hopeful long ball forward -- and that he is prepared to accept mistakes as his players get used to his ways.

He also believes that the Goodison Park crowd showed during the Chelsea match that they are on his side.

Martinez told the Guardian: “I was so impressed with the patience of the crowd. I know you’ll get the odd reaction because it’s something new but if you want to have big results there has to be a big change.

“Otherwise, if you don’t change things you’re not going to have big changes. We know as a football club that if we stick together in this transitional period we’re going to get the benefits. That’s clear.

“At Swansea, it took six or seven months to get the crowd to understand what we were trying to do. We had a period of seven months in League One where we were getting booed off but once you assimilate the concepts and the way of playing, the crowd understands it. I don’t think the crowd at Swansea would accept any other way of playing now.

“At Wigan, it took us a long time but allowed us to stay in the Premier League for three seasons and win an FA Cup. I think the crowd is intelligent enough to see why we’re doing certain things and will always support the players when they’re trying to be brave for a reason. It’s one thing to be stupid and another is being brave and trying to see the end product.”

Martinez believes that long-ball football and short-term fixes are of little benefit to a club.

He added: “I would never do that because there is a reason behind it. Maybe you will win a game but you’re not going to achieve your aim over the season. You’re always looking at the long term.

“One thing is winning games but there is also knowing how to win games and that doesn’t happen overnight. The football concepts and the way of playing is very clear and you have to be quite stubborn.”
