Sir Bobby: Allardyce must evolve Magpies' style

Former Newcastle manager Sir Bobby Robson believes current boss Sam Allardyce needs to adopt a more expansive style.

Allardyce has endured persistent speculation over his position in recent months following a disappointing start to the Barclays Premier League season.

Robson, who was sacked in August 2004, hopes Allardyce does not suffer the same fate but feels the ex-Bolton boss needs to encourage more attacking football.

Robson wrote in his column in the Mail on Sunday: ``Let's make it clear, I don't think Sam deserves the sack. You should only sack bad managers or those that don't fit in.

``Sam certainly isn't in the first category and should be given more time to acclimatise to a new club and all the anticipation and expectations that surround it.

``The trouble for Sam is the style they [Bolton] produced had an upper ceiling. What would be considered success for Bolton - slightly above halfway - is regarded as failure at Newcastle.

``To break into the top six, you need flair as well as method. Big Sam's challenge is how to become a top Newcastle manager, even if it means sacrificing some of the things that have made him successful in the past.

``Organisation and stability can take you so far but I don't think Newcastle fans can be satisfied without cheering on players that can attack and entertain.''

Robson is also not sure how much of a balanced view club owner Mike Ashley is obtaining by sitting with fans each game.

Robson added: ``It's because he's new to football and wants to see how the fans think.

``It's a great idea but, in my view, has probably served its usefulness now.

``It might be best for Mr Ashley to put on a suit, step back and start making strategic decisions detached from the groans of die-hard supporters.''
