and a reputation for not tolerating kick and run.
This has eroded over the years, and Moyes/Neville and to a degree Cahill made a virtue of the plucky Everton battlers thing, which I fear has now become the primary identity.
Other identities are as follows
West Ham - All about the style points
Tottenham - ditto, albeit not quite as extreme
Arsenal - Boring but efficient
Liverpool - technically good without being cavalier. Club version of Germany
Newcastle - cavalier and chaotic
Man City - farcical, (at least until the current ownership) Club version of Scotland
Birmingham - workmanlike
Leeds - dirty
AS I say, these can change, but takes something radical.
