Wycombe's style of play

I have just seen an interesting stat on Twitter that I thought some people might find intriguing.

Wycombe are currently joint top of our league, yet their playing stats show that this hasn't been achieved by any "total football" approach.

Obviously they seem to be succeeding with a very particular style of play. Now I remember the seasons after Tilly when Sturrock came under a lot of criticism for the way he played and there was a lot of general negativity around it on here, even in the year we came 4th on over 80 points.

I'm not suggesting that direct is the best way to go, but I wonder whether people would be more receptive to these sort of stats after the last few years? How would you feel now if our new manager tried to emulate what Wycombe are doing?

Edit: Here's the tweet, just to give the original poster credit
