Crewe boss says Swindon won't change the way they play despite losing key players this summer.
espite losing some influential players over the summer transfer window, Swindon Town boss Mark Cooper will not abandon his philosophy of playing football. That is the view of one of his main admirers in League One Steve Davis, who is trying to emulate Swindon’s possession style game. D
Swindon usually top the possession charts each week in League One and Davis feels that despite losing players such as Nathan Byrne on deadline day to Wolves and the likes of the Australian Massimo Luongo to QPR before that, Cooper won’t change his approach.
Ahead of our meeting at Gresty Road this weekend, Steve told crewealex.net: “Swindon have lost some of their players but that is what can happen when you are successful or produce good footballers. They have lost a few players who have been important to them over the last couple of seasons but Mark (Cooper) won’t change his philosophy.
“He likes to play attractive football and they usually have more possession than the opposition every week. They are very good at keeping the ball and being patience in trying to open you up. They have played this way under Mark and win or lose they won’t change. They are one of the most attractive sides to watch in the division and we are trying to emulate what they do and dominate as much of the ball as we can.
“It should be a really good footballing game this weekend and one we can look forward to. I think Mark has done a great job and I like the way they play the game.”
