Poyet: We showed belief

The Argus: Will Buckley almost gets through to score a third (photo Simon Dack) Will Buckley almost gets through to score a third (photo Simon Dack)

Gus Poyet hailed the belief of his Albion players after they won 2-1 at Huddersfield today.

The Seagulls survived a few nervy moments before securing a richly deserved victory on the back of Will Buckley’s first-half goals.

Poyet said: “It is incredible how a victory can change the way people are going to talk now.

“Until the other day we had one win in nine.

“Now people are going to say we are unbeaten in five. That means we are winning games.

“The best thing is the attitude, the concentration and the belief of the players after the results we have had to come here and keep playing.

“To keep performing, to keep playing our way, to be calm, to dominate the game as much as we could until we were up 2-0.

“Then, of course, it is going to be difficult. They are not going to give it you.

“But when it is a battle you need to battle and the players did that.”

Poyet revealed Tomasz Kuszczak had a finger infection ahead of the game and second choice Casper Ankergren was injured in training on Thursday.

That meant a late call for Peter Brezovan.

He said of Kuszczak's injury: “We thought that in the last 24 hours it would settle down and be ready to go. But it didn’t.”

Poyet also praised the “terrific” Marcos Painter, who stood in for the injured Wayne Bridge.

Hi Vegas, I told you yesterday that Gus would be purring. And so am I. The play-offs or better beckons. Six points from our next two home games and then Palace beware.

We should never have got rid of Bobby Zamora. Or Peter Ward for that matter. And what hell happened to Fred Binney? I can't believe we let him go.

Even if Murray was "that guy" I'm not sure he still plays for us? or have I missed something?, I wish people would mention important things like that a bit more often....What?!! Van Persie has gone to Man U too, phew I must keep up....
well done Buckers and all the current Albion players....

Could it be that we have the answer to our problems up front; I really do believe that Hoskins is a much better player than people give him credit for. Just give him a run in the side and we will find out. It also proves that Buckley has to play as many games as possible.Do hope Tomo is fit next week as Brezovan has not changed and is still a liability. Painter a surprising success today. lets hope it continues. Onward and upward

Good result, good performance all round. A lot of positive comments about Will Hoskins, particularly his ability to hold the ball and set up other players. Would love to see him start alongside Will B and Stephen D in the next two home games. Hopefully Gus will realise that scoring an early goal changes opponents tactics, forcing them to come out of their shell and leaving more gaps at the back for us to exploit. Will B is a treasure, so much pace, he's the ideal player to capitalise on space. I so much hope we can keep him.

It would be surprising if Dobbie and Hoskins did not feature significantly against Bolton and beyond. I think they will both deliver goals and in particular, I would think Barnes is now under pressure for his place. Healthy competition and some interesting options now emerging for the manager.

The reason Murray has scored so many goals, is that nearly half of them have been penalties. CMS has scored as many from open play. I doubt whether Murray would have scored as many for us if he had still been here. Having said that, with the right service he's a bit of a "Grant Holt" type player, so I think he will be OK in the Premiership for a year or two if they get there, and with Ian Holloway in
charge they've got every chance.

We have to move on and stop moaning about him being given away -it is pointless, negative stuff. Watford could say the same about Will Buckley - who was sold to us at £9m less than his true value!!! At his age, Murray's value will never be more than £3m - so we are at least £6m up. Add the £1.4m profit from Elliott Bennett, £700k profit from Craig Noone, and possibly £1.5m profit from CMS if Norwich buy him in January, then we are £10m in credit.
Adam El-Abd must be worth at least £2m, and Kuszak, Bridcutt and Dunk, at least £1m - so we are £15m in credit.

Gus will probably bring in someone like Tom Pope of Port Vale in January, and with Hoskins and Dobbie starting to show some form we could start to get on a winning run.

The Palace bubble will burst at some point (hopefully against us!) especially if Zaha goes to one of say Chelsea, Man-Utd, Arsenal or Man-City.

The Championship top 6 race is going to be "white" hot after Christmas, and I think we could be in there.

In Gus we trust!

Not so sure on some of your valuations Vince and I doubt that we will sell anywhere near the number of players that some might think.
At best/worse, I can see maybe three moving on and if my three did then I think we might end up with 14.5 million from those sales.

Sorry not going to name my three but maybe the total sum might give you a clue.

Vince good post. But why are some almost obsessed with who we might sell in january? Firstly if and still a big ,if, granted, but lets be positive we are in the hunt for promotion i bet cms( who has lives near me and has just bought his house! Not rented!) And buckers might not want to leave to say a norwich or even villa as even if money on offer better than us just now may not be the case if we are promoted and in fact they could end up in a relegation battle. In a nutshell unless a big money offer from a top 10 prem side may not be worth jumping ship till end of season.??

We have just beaten a good team on their own turf,and instead of wallowing in glory for the rest of the week,some are selling our goalscorer,after 17 games,talk like this is not good for anyone,except our next opponent.Some of the comments here today,do the job for others.Please remember,this is NEW Albion,not shy little stand at the back albion treading water,you play us on the same terms now,and we will beat you.Talk of selling our stars after such a short time is to me at least,defeatest, pessimistic and ridiculous.Enjoy the win and look to the next!!..UTA

I think there may be some noses slightly out of joint come next match. If WH doesn't start up front alongside CMS with WB and AO in support then I will be very surprised. Just the sight of that selection should terrify most opposition defences. However I have come to realise that I watch an entirely different game to those who actually select the team... and also to being surprised - so I guess nothing will change. I must ask however why the quest for another striker continues if Gus has no intention of playing two together; for me the idea of WH and CMS is mouthwatering... Der! Oh well, great result, fingers crossed for the next one...!

Good win . Jm I think you and I watch similar games . WH up front with cms would be great to see but today again proved what a fit will Buckley can do and have thought all along he could be our secret striker negating the need to get another acquisition to add to our already big squad many of whom ,who unless we get a massive number of injuries( god forbid) will never get on the bench let alone a start . Question to ponder for the week everyone. Who would be (may be should) our keeper in the event Brezovan gets injured on coach hm and Tomas and kasper still not fit??

Gus has shown that he doesn't like to change a winning team, and why would he, any reason why he wouldn't start the next match with the same out field players?

Hoskins or Dobbie for Barnes might be one change he would make but given his previous decisions Barnes looks safe.

Painter had a good game, according to reports, but I guess Bridge is a shoe in if fit.

Good start by Albion on Saturday, Huddersfield were perhaps not allowed to be at their best by Gus' men. Although we did suffer the (normal) last few minutes of panic.
Marcos Painter did well despite getting 'clocked' in the face a couple of times.
With his confidence up, I was surprised Will Buckley did not score his third when one on one with their keeper in the second half. But can't fault the guy for his match performance.
Very encouraging to see 'Hosko' get 30 odd minutes, the fans are really willing him to get into the side now he is fit. He needs a goal.
Mark is right, the Amex crowd need to be as proportionally loud as the away fans were at Huddersfield to push our lads to two home wins.
Come On! UTA

You are absolutely right! I was really trying to get a positive slant on things, because people keep banging on about "if only we had Murray" blah blah which is boring negative stuff. I don't think that Gus will sell anyone of the existing players I mentioned, although CMS probably only has 3 or 4 good years ahead of him, so that if say a £5M bid did come in from a team like Norwich, Gus would probably not want to hold him back, if he was desperate to go.

The main point of my post was to say that, on current value, our players are worth a huge amount more than we paid for them. We have a huge amount to be delighted about. Therefore, being over-despondent about a player like Murray, (who although he is skilfull and has a presence about him in the penalty area, lacks pace and probably quite near the end of his career), is a pointless waste of time. Murray has been successful at Palace because he suits their style of play and thrives on feeding off a constant supply of crosses. At the Albion he would have been expected to get through a lot more work often working in isolation up front. I don't think that would have suited him (or for that matter, Chris Wood of Millwall who needs others around him).

Some M/Bs have been saying they would like to see Hoskins and CMS up front together. I don't think this would work. I see Hoskins as a deep-lying forward who will play in the likes of CMS and Buckley. It was clear from the radio commentary that Hoskins linked up brilliantly with Buckley, and gave him a gilt-edged chance for a hat trick. As someone said above, Buckley could be the other striker we need, like Aluko of Hull, who uses pace and skill to outpace defences. Hoskins has the brain, close control and know how to play in strikers like CMS and Buckley.

I would substitute Dobbie for Barnes and always play Orlandi (with Hammond /Crofts as sub)

My team for Saturday if all fit would be

Kuszac
Bridge El Abd Greer Bruno
Bridcutt
Barnes(Dobbie) Orlandi Hoskins
CMS Buckley

That side is too attacking, Hammond does what Barnes does , he brings bits and players together . Your side is great going forward, but would never keep ball under pressure.
Any news on Vicente? He would change things.

You say with my selection we wouldn't keep the ball under pressure - but think about the players - Orlandi, Hoskins and Buckley. They all hold the ball up well, and would be well supported on the flanks by Bridge and Bruno who are also good at keeping the ball when going forward. Bridcutt is also hard to shake off the ball when in possession. CMS would be much more in the game, and we would be 3-0 up before we perhaps introduced Hammond to stiffen things up in the midfield. Game over! (like at Huddersfield).

You are kidding....right? Not about Murray - that is obvious, but the prem? We would get hammered with the squad we currently have. Not saying there is no quality in our squad - of course not but my money would be on us being in the position Southampton currently find themselves..........
and yes, I am aware they picked up three points on Saturday.

If we all took a dose of reality medicine I think we could then start talking about our squad and the prem division.

If you firstly consider who, come january, want to buy from us. Secondly, who are they offering money for and lastly, how big is the offer, then you know if Brighton have real prem level players.

Southampton are not a prem level team, they are playing for survival so if they came in with an offer for someone it would be like Cardiff or Palace making a bid. Now if Spurs wanted the same player that would be a better assesment of the targeted player.

I doubt that we have more than four players, on contract, that would attract prem teams interest, and thos eprem teams would all be below half way in the table. Dunk might be the exception, he is young and has talent, the type of player Wenger likes to pick up and develope, but that is what he would be, a development squad player.

Fulham, Wigan and maybe even a club like Newcastle, might take a look at CMS and or Buckley but both would be a bit of a gamble, maybe less so in the case of CMS.

Bruno, Bridcutt and Kuzack, all three might draw a little attention. As I said, January will tell us just how many of our squad are good enough for the step up because those that are will draw bids and those that are not won't. I would be surprised to see any of our players go to any prem club that is above 8th from bottom in the prem table come january.
