Long ball specialist.
It may have been horses for course but its polar opposite of how Scott suggested how we will play this season.
His Twitter is full of vids he's liked or retweeted based around possession building up from the back. So possession based may well be his preferred style, but has ultimately worked under managers in the past who have implemented long ball styles, mainly Pennock. Which if anything could be a benefit for plan B or faster progression up the pitch.

This modern football trope that teams need an identity and should try to play a set way is fucking bollocks if you ask me (I知 aware no one did)

Do what you need to do to win football matches.

Did Sir Alex Ferguson worry about his teams identity and style of play in the 90s? Did he bollocks, he tried to win football matches and he did alright with that to be fair

To a certain extent that is correct, you either buy players to suit your prefered style (at this level anyway) or you change your style to suit the players available to you.

Look at Lincoln under Cowley, they had a team of hoofers and niggly nasty players so they played that way, admittedly he never changed that style at Hudderfield and it cost him his job after under 1 season.

Us under Macari in Div 4....teams back then played hoofball and put a lot of high balls into our box...so Macari buys a huge commanding keeper who wasnt the best at shot stopping but could claim high crosses....it worked....we also has less talented players that were fitter than any team in all 4 leagues so we used that to win games in the last 10 mins due to fitness level.

Horses for courses.

Are they preparing for life in L2 next season?

The fitness element is slowly being eradicated from the game unfortunately.  Next season with 5 subs you can effectively just have all your attacking players go full pelt and when they tire a little replace them all and then go again. Great for teams with money and big squads, a massive disadvantage for those without.

There is a chance they take the head of strength and conditioning guy from us also as I think he is one of Garner's bois. (could be others I guess)
