Albion suspend manager Poyet

The Argus: Manager Gus Poyet has been suspended by Albion Manager Gus Poyet has been suspended by Albion

ALBION have suspended manager Gus Poyet, his assistant Mauricio Taricco and first team coach Charlie Oatway.

The Argus understands Poyet refused to deal with the retained list, announced by the club earlier today, on the basis he could be leaving.

Chairman Tony Bloom and head of football operations David Burke had to speak with the players kept on and released.

A brief statement released by the club said: “Brighton and Hove Albion confirm it has suspended its manager, assistant manager and team coach from their duties.

“The club will now follow its internal procedures with regard to this matter and will make no further comment at this time.”

Really sad that it has come to this. Hope Charlie is not showing misplaced loyalties - he would probably have had a job at the Albion as long as he wanted one.

something clearly went down between the first leg and the second leg... we could not have been any worse if we had tried, which maybe we didn't? also... holloway was on the touchline nearly the whole game, GP was sat down as if he couldn't give a s**t, which maybe he didn't?”

Gus Poyet is shooting himself in the foot. If you are a manager, a true manager, then you should act like one and sadly Gus is not.
Those players that were selected for release were his players, he owed them the respect of hearing from him and not Mr. Bloom.
I assume that when Poyet said no his assistant and then his head coach were asked to perform the duty and they declined.

The actions taken by these three is nothing more than insulting to those that are leaving the club.

It is my hope that the suspension remains in place for a long time. Mr. Bloom should not dismiss any of them, leave them on the sidelines until they walk and lose any chance of compensation for what ever time is left on the contracts.

For me this is a disgace and there is no excuse that any of them could offer as justification.

As i said on a previous post..Watch the club scratch at what may become an open wound; whilst the flies buzz around smelling blood. But we all know what flies really like feeding on.
It's a shame but lets hope it does not drag on too long. Internal procedures mean one thing; The King is dead. Long live the King!

Mr Bloom chose to give Gus a chance and Gus in return paid it back by getting the club to a level it has not been in for 30 years so please lets not forget that.
If/When Gus goes I feel sure that Mr Bloom will as he did with Gus make the right decision as to who he wants to take our club to the next level, we as supporters have to trust that our Chairman will do the right thing for B&HA FC.

I noticed that too! I also when seeing the team selection and subs thought that Gus's Brain had gone somewhere else.
I get the impression that Bloom ran out of patience with Gus after the Reading debacle, I also feel Gus blew his budget on Vicente or compromised it for sure, did he feel his relationship was so bad that he through the game and then in name all but resigned in the post make interview and further compounded things with his comments to the players afterwards, keep him suspended and bring in someone else with the title of director of football! Hey Gus I hear Crew might be looking for a manager.

I can imagine that Gus felt it would be unfair to deal with the players out of contract and try to persuade them to stay when he knew he might be going. Taricco and Oatway must also have refused. No way back from this. Trouble is, no decent managers available at our level. RDM won't even consider it, he wouldn't betray his friend. Maybe we'll have to look abroad. Bet the Croydon lot are loving this. However, in Bloom I trust....

This is football circa 2013 so let's not be too quick to judge.

Gus leaving is undoubtedly a blow to the club and its supporters. Will we survive without him? Yes.

Will we prosper without him? That remains to be seen.

His departure is bound to have major ramifications for next season.

I, for one, am grateful for what he has achieved over the past three-and-a-half years. Unfortunately, no club or its chairman can be held to ransom.

I must have been watching a different game on Monday. I thought the players gave it everything but came up short. Gus was as animated as usual on the touchline. He was going particularly mad on a couple of occasions in the first half and was giving instructions to Bridcutt and others during injury breaks.

However ..... I do think something happened during the January transfer window and the subsequent loan window to sour relationships with TB and GP. Gus has been behaving oddly since then. Such a shame it has now come to this after such a great season.

Wouldn't I want to be able to say, 'thanks Gus, thanks for all you have done and I wish you well in your future career,' how I would like to be able to say that but I can't.

I have always liked Gus, defended him on here and questioned some of his decisions but always supported him.

I have forgiven him some of his more contentious comments.

Since our defeat by Palace, 'some,' of his words and his actions today, have changed my whole outlook about him.

Right now I don't give a toss about Poyet, for me he just needs to go away, where to I don't care, just go.

Dicker and Painter were treated with contempt today by Gus, Vicente already had his plane ticket bought, but those two were owed better.

Poyet was their gaffer, not Bloom and not Burke, Poyet. Today they got to hear what they didn't want to hear, it should have come from the man that they did their best for.

Poyet has shown himself to be a small man.

Kids and their toys sprng to mind !, am I the only one thinking that this just might be the men in suits as much as Poyet's doing. So that's it then, good players going cheap !, Div 1 players in as long as they are cheap, half empty stadium when all the fair weather fans clear off and cancel season tickets. great thanks, after 40 years watching the Albion I should have known better than to think we would keep getting it right. Am very fed up in case you hadnt noticed.

He had the chance to think about it and retract, walked straight down the tunnel after the game not a wave applause to the fans, I think things have been going down hill throughout the season with comments re the budget from both Gus and the chief executive and then the Reading thing looked to most to be more about posturing than real intent in his position staying at the Albion looked a no Brainer.
Maybe now things will come out which will give us the fans an insight as to where things went wrong. The frightening thing is that should Gus be the victim then so are we the fans, we know to well how difficult it is to get rid of a rogue Chairman !

Maybe now things will come out which will give us the fans an insight as to where things went wrong. The frightening thing is that should Gus be the victim then so are we the fans, we know to well how difficult it is to get rid of a rogue Chairman ! Bucket feet Duffy

Poyet has done a good job, but you always got the feeling it was all about him. If I was a Brighton fan I would feel disrespected by his behaviour. He has placed the club in a difficult position by not performing the job he is paid to do and that's unacceptable.

It looks like a parting of the ways now. Time to look forward and not backward. You have the stadium and fan base - it's an attractive job which will attract some quality candidates

BREAKING NEWS

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Gus Poyet and his assistant Mauricio Taricco have been suspended with immediate effect and informed to stay away from the club.

BBC Sport's Ben Smith reports the club are conducting an internal investigation into whether Poyet may have breached his contract by making a series of comments in the wake of this week's play-off defeat by Crystal Palace.

It is understood that once the board had learned that Poyet had told his players that he could offer no guarantees about his future at the club, they took the decision to suspend him with immediate effect.

For those who gave him the benefit of the doubt over the last few days, the truth is out.

A scheming person (Gus) has emerged, who far from being soley off-the-cuff passionate Latin character; clearly had his departure and how to achieve it, ready in case we did not make it to the PL. Then pre planned blurted out stage 1 on Radio Sussex within minutes of final whistle.

Incredible treatment of TB and the fans.

Just as it is well known players are tapped up by other clubs, so are managers. Gus will be at Everton, Fulham, or the like within days.

Did a great job to get us out of League One with brilliant football. The rest was mixed. Mucked up over Murray (don't believe the budgets baloney), an incredible £3.25m blown on a league one striker who was no spring chicken, performances at places like BristolC and Barnsley that were an embarrassment, never gave us a powerhouse midfield despite the clear evidence that the brilliant Brudcutt was getting no support against other centre midfields packed with 3 good players over the 2 seasons (ie he didn't get the message).

Let's hope Albion loving Oatway is cleared.

TB will be inundated with CVs from great candidates for a fantastic.

A new start playing football to win.

Ive been a fan of the Albion as a Brighton boy since my first match at the Goldstone in 1953.I've lived in Lancashire for the last 50 years but going to all points north of Watford ever since to support the team, usually with two Blackburn Rovers supporting sons in tow. I must say that Gus's actions this week are probably the worst display of treachery towards the club since Bill Archer.Archer lived near me in Blackburn and I was one of the many Albion fans who picketed his house when the Goldstone was asset stripped in the 80's.Gus has done a great job in many ways but he has a dark side to his character. Im glad Tony Bloom has had the guts to stand up to him.If Gus doesn't already have a job lined up he may find that other clubs think twice about employing him. I watched Sky on Monday. The team he put out were never going to win

I assume that when Poyet said no his assistant and then his head coach were asked to perform the duty and they declined.

The actions taken by these three is nothing more than insulting to those that are leaving the club.

It is my hope that the suspension remains in place for a long time. Mr. Bloom should not dismiss any of them, leave them on the sidelines until they walk and lose any chance of compensation for what ever time is left on the contracts.

For me this is a disgace and there is no excuse that any of them could offer as justification.
I don't think that's the case Vegas that the others refused to speak to the players. It's probably a precautional measure. TB cannot be sure where Tarrico and Oatways loyalties lie.

Putting that a side he's done a great job, but primarily because he's had a great Chairman behind him!!

The Chairman stays and of course the Fans stay - Keep the Faith! Mr Bloom will keep moving us forward with a new Manager soon!!

However ..... I do think something happened during the January transfer window and the subsequent loan window to sour relationships with TB and GP. Gus has been behaving oddly since then. Such a shame it has now come to this after such a great season.
I agree my West Sussex friend. I hoped that it was perhaps something that could be worked out.
I have great faith in Bloom and the budget needs to be sensible. He has backed Poyet, as far as i know, to the best of our financial ability.I will not slag off Poyet; as he has done extremely well and i have consistently supported his footballing 'philosophy', from the moans of tippy tap to the moans of two strikers.All the talk of no plan B and the wait for a striker worthy of the name etc was indicative of a system being applied without the necessary funds and quality to sustain it. But if Gus wants more cash to play with, then maybe he needs to move higher up the football chain and good luck to him.
His epitaph is unfortunately going to be littered with the curses of the dejected, the illiterate and the vultures who thrive on such things. I do not excuse him entirely; nor praise him unreservedly. But i do appreciate what he has done.
As for the future, i suspect some consolidation may be in order next season. Careful choices to be made. Keep calm and get a new manager. My main hope is we can build on the progress made; not start again.

Spoilt and brats springs to mind.They probably have somewhere lined up to go to,just as well as the marriage is well and truly over now.
really? Why would you agree with Vegas'? he clearly knows nothing. why would any sensible businessman keep Poyet suspended indefinitely and continue to pay his wages and not bring in a new manager?

Suspension does not mean 'no pay', he is under inquiry, so if guilt disciplinary action is undertaken and we can only speculate what that means in the context of the clubs internal procedures.

Bottom line is this will be resolved quickly, but not the way Vegas plays it out above. Fantasy is not reality.

If there is one thing that I am confident about it's that we will not start to decline.

Brighton has become too big to fail now, we have a brand that people like and huge sums of money have been invested.

Bloom will appoint a capable manager, one that can see what he has with us and one that will not keep looking for green grass on the other side of the road.

I have said several times today that new money must be coming our way, Bloom and the board can't finance Brighton, they just don't have enough personal wealth to do so. Brighton is continuing to expand it's infrastructure, money is being spent, we lost 8 million this year but money is still being spent.

Something is on the horizon, it has to be it's the only sensible explanation that can justify our on going investment.

We can't spend enough on players but we can spend on a 30 million training facility.

If we agree that Bloom knows what he is doing, and I think we do, then he knows that he has to protect his massive investment and to do that, we need success and success requires yet more money.
If Bloom does not have that money, the board neither then there is only one possible answer, NEW MONEY.

Be not afraid Steveg1958, the future of our club is rosy, there will be no stepping back just stride heading forward.

Gus is not willing to wait and that is his problem.

I agree that Gus & co have been hugely disrespectful to those players departing (even Vicente who must have cost the club a fortune for precious little return) and he is now selling the club itself short by withdrawing his labour. By doing so he will surely make prospective new employers, whether Premier League or overseas equivalent, think a lot harder about the character and long term commitment of Gus. This could well backfire big-time for him.
What was so difficult for him to relay the decisions which Gus himself had presumably made?
A very good time to say goodbye and I have every faith in Tony Bloom to bring in a new manager for the next stage in the club's development. Sadly the effect could be to make promotion harder next season after a summer of upheaval.

I think that Gus's name being linked to Premier league clubs has gone to his head and he thinks he's better than he is. A sad end to a great era for Gus, and a bad way to treat the fans and the players. My worry is this will be very unsettling for the players, especially the likes of Bridcutt, who will see that their loyalty has not been repaid and will readily accept lucrative offers elsewhere.

Something in January?

This is a truly remarkable end to the tenancy of Gus Poyet and I am sure none of us expected this thoroughly unfitting finale. I have been unimpressed with him for some time now. The constant bleatings about his budget, refusal to accept that he gets things wrong and blames others, not to mention the veiled threats of moving on and putting himself up for poaching. However, I have remained quiet, happy in the knowledge that he was doing a decent job generally and 4 th in the league this year is a great job! However, there is more to miss than meets the eye. Something has gone badly wrong between the game at Selhurst and Monday. The game was lost before the players kicked a ball on Monday and I suspect most at the club knew that a storm was brewing!! Why? We can only speculate and will never really know. Time for TB to move quickly and limit the damage. A new manager needs all of the pre-season to begin to stamp his mark and start a fresh promotion push. That manager will be appointed who will play the way we now expect, hopefully more humble, full of desire concentrate on the job he has rather than looking for the next shiny object. Perhaps Mr Carrot was write in describing Gus as a "thick muppet" after all!! Ha,ha, ha! UTA

The signs were there from the start. Poyet said he'd be with us for a few years, but would move on to better things. What sort of a man says things like that? The 'Special one' he aint. We can all pick the team better than managers every week, granted. But the fact is, he is totally to blame for the inept showing on Monday. It looked like men against boys out there. No pace, steel or creativity. As for moaning about budgets, well look at Arsenal. They have only just cleared their stadium debt and have a capped budget. Tony Bloom will have splashed over £200 million pounds, once the Academy is built.Jesus Christ Gus(not referring to you as him), cut the man some slack. We should be chanting Tony Bloom's name every week. We do need a foreign manager though, to carry on the way we play. But this time, with the end product. A goal!! UTA

I'd like to thank Gus for his work and am sorry it hasn't worked out. However I do not fear for the future at all. If it all goes tits up, which of course it won't, the biggest loser would be Mr Bloom. It's his money that has paid for all this so it is not likely he is going to throw it all away. Interesting times ahead. Apparently the Spanish speaking manager of Saints could be available soon! Another row about money, who would have thunkit!

If it is not Gus' retained list why would he deliver it?
Of course, it could be Gus' list prepared in advance.

I do think Gus is trying to construct his dismissal though, there is the matter of £2M compensation to be worked around but if Gus wants to go, personally I would let him go or sack for misconduct with the condition that if he takes up another managerial/coaching position in the next 12 months the compo is due to us, 24 months if it is in the same division as Brighton.
He has often said "we honour the contract" when talking about players no longer required but still due a salary. Now he seemingly wants to rip his up.

Whatever is really going on, I am sure Gus will have learned to say a bit less in public.

So sad. Gus and BHA both benefitted in a massive way from each other at just the right time.

What a shame they have fallen out so publicly.

Thanks for some great football days out Gus. Loved it.

But TB is the man responsible for the wellbeing of our football club and after we have all been through, financial common sense must be the order of the day - not a blank cheque.

The end of an era - the beginning of a new dawn. Enjoy the ride and keep the faith.

I am gutted at this news. My main worry is that the club could loose any impetus it has gained in the past 3 seasons. Albions football has in the main been very attractive but not always getting the results. Fans want a winning team, and some would appreciate the long ball game, with Gus you know you are not going to get that. I believe he is destined for a bigger club, at the moment we are only a very good Championship one. Whoever takes his place will find it a hard act to follow unless we are very lucky. Gus has achieved a lot while here and the 'fickle' fans should remember that. Who can replace him? There are no winners in this latest fiasco.

To be quite frank, I'm annoyed at all the backstabbing comments about Gus. Being a loyal fan of the club, 'he' has created the bedrock of football which all the pundits out there are raving about. This does not happen 'overnight!' It takes time to build this into a team. I remember watching the unconfident style of football we played just before he started with us at BHA - down at the Withdean. In a short space of time this was changed. This has grown in time and has attacted players like Ulloa, Vicente, Bruno, Lopez, Bridge, Lua Lua, Buckley etc to enjoy playing the beautiful game with solid performances which put us in to 4th place this year. Now as I understand it the 'management' above Poyet was changed recently.. Shouldn't we be wondering why 'suddenly' Poyet is in this position. What's the term.. No smoke without fire? So what if Poyet did lead us to top flight football, this may have been the year to build on. Gus you are a legend, if the club ran out of money to support the rise it's a shame. We were so nearly there. Gus, the players and the fans all know we should have beaten Palace at home, so where has this come from? Being a coach myself previously it takes time to get the results you want (look at Fergie?) it looks like we are about to become another Chelsea, where managers change and players dont settle long enough to enjoy their football and play an unbeatable strength. C'mon Mr. Bloom, you saved our club once, this time its about keeping the one true person who got our players playing a unique style of football which has never gone backwards. Gus wouldn't put his job on the line surely if he didn't love what he'd worked hard to build! This has to be a call for help, supporting us to go up to Premier status which is where we WILL go next year with Gus and Bloom at the helm! From there, Gus would be at the great club he is claiming to want to lead one day! Why are some people so short sighted of this? You can tell he loves the club !

Carter Cooldancer, yes the trio will be paid whilst suspended but if sacked then huge sums in compensation will have to be paid out assuming that gross misconduct can't be proven.

Whilst they are sitting on the sidelines it will allow other clubs to make approaches for Poyet, and when he goes, 2.5 million comes in.

This is just not right. TB has backed GP to the hilt. Gave him his first chance as a number one. Allowed him to bring in his own style of play and backed him in the transfer market within the budget, and allowed him a big say in the construction of the new training complex. Then for some inexplicable reason GP has gone bonkers.

GP's actions recently have made this a power struggle. Who is really in charge? TB can only give GP so much artistic licence and now he's stepped over the line of what is acceptable from a team manager. As others have stated there is only one winner and that is Bloom. It's his money, his club and his training complex. Gus has pushed it too far and Bloom has now had enough of his unrealistic demands.

Good luck Gus, but you have now shown you are not in it for the project and only for your own personal gain.

The football has been very mixed at Championship level under Gus.

2 great months at the end, and good every Aug/Sept. But plenty of times sat there bored perusing the programme if opponents were successfully nullifying us, or worse outclassing us. Leicester always home and away, Millwall and Watford at the Amex, just some examples.

The club is on the rise regardless of Gus. TB and the vision of the Board in the post land-thieves era, has set us on our way.

I'm certain the next carefully chose manager will give us positive football.

(And i do not advocate Pulis territory at all costs, tactics).

Fair play to Gus he tried to play football the right way and thats why the crowds where so big. We dont want a Sam Alladyce clone. Think back to Mike Bailey and the 13,000 crowds in the old 1st Division. But I do think his teams lacked a lot in character and could never turn round a 1 goal deficit.

Just to put some perspective on this,I have mentioned before but most of the latest rumblings and spats seem to have occurred since the arrival of Paul Barber,who you may remember was part of the decision making process in ending Gus's days at Tottenham along with Ramos.

Spurious link.

Barber is just someone, in the employ of TB, trying to raise revenues and cutting costs on the non football side. Did a great job is getting rid of Azure mid way through their one sided 4 year contracts. He is also charged with reducing the losses so that we meet the MANDATORY FL financial rules. TB (and Barber if you insist) have been immensely generous to Gus. Holloway, Powell and Jackett have lived on scraps compared. Gus blundered with getting rid of his star striker Murray for nowt, PL fee paid for League One striker CMS, crock Vicente's wages.

A new start now with a great coach and manager who will work with the large revenues generated by the growing club.

The club and its fanbase are far bigger than transient employee Gus passing through.

Spurious link.

Barber is just someone, in the employ of TB, trying to raise revenues and cutting costs on the non football side. Did a great job is getting rid of Azure mid way through their one sided 4 year contracts. He is also charged with reducing the losses so that we meet the MANDATORY FL financial rules. TB (and Barber if you insist) have been immensely generous to Gus. Holloway, Powell and Jackett have lived on scraps compared. Gus blundered with getting rid of his star striker Murray for nowt, PL fee paid for League One striker CMS, crock Vicente's wages.

Gus has done a fantastic job and we should all be gratefull. However, he has gradually become very high maintenance and this cannot be tolerated any longer. It is probably too late now for a retraction and apology.
It's very sad it should come to this but no one is bigger than the club even if he has a huge ego and is impatient and ambitious.
Albion will move forward regardless and a bright young manager needs to be appointed soon if and when Gus goes.

Well I think it has all been said in the above posts. It IS a sad day. Gus HAS bought us a long way but I agree with those who have said that over the past few months Gus seems to have been too outspoken, little diplomacy or regard for finances of the club. The reading episode could not have helped either. His first managerial position and will not look good on his CV whether he walks or gets the sack. I hope he walks or Bloom proves Gus broke his contract by things said after Monday, that way i guess the Club will not have to pay any compensation. I guess also that now Gus will not any time soon get that Premiership job he wants. Bloom will get the RIGHT man this next time and the Club will go on to better things. Gus had to go sometime but is very sad the manner in which it is going to happen. I admire Bloom for pulling the rug from under Gus's feet, the actions of a true gambler??!!

Ken in Spain says...

@Neville I can go along with that. Charlie was very grateful to be employed by Gus at the start of his regime so I don't blame Charlie for being loyal to him. I am concerned that when a club changes managers all the backroom staff move with him.

I read that WBA have a club system that operates differently and hoped we would follow suit. All the backroom staff, scouting system, Academy staff,medical back-up etc. are employed by the club and stay in place when the first team coach moves on. Maybe that's what the owner wants to put in place. I saw Gus on TV recently saying that he didn't like that idea. He wanted to control everything going on in the club, like an old fashioned style manager. This could be behind the goings on now.

I's about 10.30pm as I write, I would guess that even at this time Bloom is working for Brighton.

We have been told that the trio have been suspended, suspended for how long?

I would suspect that Bloom is asking himself why, why after the season we have just had does he find himself in the position he is now in.

Like several on here I have to think that problems arose at some time in the past, be that 2 weeks ago or maybe as long as 2 months ago.

I have calmed down a bit now, my initial anger has started to wain, right now I am left wondering just what the squad are thinking.

We recently signed a young kid to the DS, a goal keeper prospect, what must be going on in his mind and what will he take away from all of this.

I am still angry but some of my anger has now turned to sadness. I think it very sad that a person who has done so much for our club chooses to end his days with us with an act of defiance.

Bloom has the authority to suspend the trio, he will choose the length of that suspension. Bloom also has the authority to tell the trio to get back to work one the suspension is over, if they refuse they will be in breach of contract.

I can only see this suspension as a gateway to Poyet hanging around until an offer comes in for his services, any offer. Poyet is done, he is finshed even if the suspension is lifted next week, which it could be.

If Bloom wants to he can lift the suspension and wait for an approach and then collect the 2.5 million in compensation. I would not be surprised if Poyet offered to chip in to cover the compensation, it might be the only way he can get away if another club can't or won't pay that sum.

Poyet, Tarrico and Oatway are in breach of contract. Tony Bloom would not have them suspended otherwise. Masterstroke from TB. Fancy trying to take on one of the world`s best poker players and a very intelligent chairman to boot who knows his football inside out. The three of them are finished at the Albion now. I`m already looking forward to TB getting a new manager, an assistant and new first team coach. I don`t think we fans should worry who comes in. It`s going to be o.k. TB won`t let the fans down. Poyet, Tarrico and Oatway have discredited themselves, the football club and the chairman. The fans won`t forgive them now. It`s like The Three Stooges v The Rocky Marciano of the business and gambling world. Well Gus ! You threw it all away along with Tarrico and Charlie, an ex captain of the club........ "UP THE ALBION". I love you.

Such a shame it's come to this. Gus and the team have done so well to get to the play offs.

Gus should remember where his management career was before Brighton. However, Mr Bloom has taken the right decision. No way back now for Gus, which s a shame as I think next season would have been our season.

The question is who could be in line to take over?

No man not even Gus can act like a spoilt chid and throw his toys out of the pram and think he can get away with it, or was ths his plan?

Employment law.

Paid whilst suspended is normal practice.

Dismissed without proof of breach of contract or gross misconduct resolves it's self with a cash settlement.

Dismissed for gross misconduct does not require compensation to be paid.

Dismissed for breach of contract also does not require compensation to be paid but on rare occasions, it can be.

I think we will hear that Poyet's position will be resolved by, 'mutual consent,' as I doubt that Bloom will hold out and wait for an approach for Poyet in order to collect the club's compensation, but he could.

@Vegas I share some of your fears but not the ones about the players. They are professionals, not fans. It happens in football all the time. Yes Gus attracted people like Upson and Bridge but he has put us on the map, job done. We can stand on our own feet now! If we can offer players acceptable terms they will play for us. They don't do it out of loyalty, nor should they.

Of course managers are influential and will attract players but all pros are looking for the best deal they can get, rightly so. They are the ones we pay to watch not directors, managers etc.

You know the procedures that have to be gone through. Gus and Co are suspended while an internal inquiry takes place. Lawyers have to pore over the details and find a legal reason to sack them without us having to pay them off.

How did Gus respond when Nicky Forster spoke injudiciously to Sky News? I have been a fan of Gus' since the beginning and none of us can know what went on behind the scenes, but his remarks remarks to the effect that contracts can be torn up when it suits, and his obvious attempts to put himself in the shop window have really shocked me. Even if he feels hard done by, to keep making criticisms in public is not only disloyal both to the club and to we fans, it is also dishonorable!!!

If you didn't know Tony Bloom was a poker player, you do now. Putting Gus and co on suspension was a brilliant move, a no lose situation if you like. As has been pointed out on here, Gus was being feted by several clubs and he felt in a position of power. But, by pushing TB into a corner, he had no choice but to raise the stakes and call his bluff. In one move, (the suspension), Gus' has been forced into a position that is not of his making, he now has to either back down, (unlikely), resign, (possible) or stay suspended until TB says so. Either way, any potential employers that may have been a better prospect than us will be thinking twice and at best Gus will be moving sideways. Initially, TB will not sack Gus, just make his position untenable (and wait for the 2.5m compo to roll in). The only way this is a losing hand for TB is if when the suspension is lifted, Gus throws his toys out of the pram (damaging his own reputation) and TB is forced to fire him. All in all, a well judged move by TB. Out of interest, can anyone remember when the last time a manager was suspended by his chairman??

Well done TB. You've shown how you'll support a manager for 3.5 years and now you've shown how you won't let him walk all over you. BHA is a long term project with huge investment in player development. It is not a club that will waste money trying to buy immediate success, or trying to please an over ambitious manager. Thanks and good luck Gus, wherever you end up, it was good while it lasted. But remember one thing: we dumped you before you dumped us ;-)

Great move Tony. Now it gets interesting because Gus, the silly sod that he is, will be in breach of duties as a manager and could be sacked and the club would be in a good place to not have to pay him out on is contract.

You have to wonder about Poyet's decision making abilities.

Great to see Tony Bloom and the club stand up for whats right and let Poyet know he's the small man in this equation.

Interesting. I believe he would make good replacement too, for many reasons. However, does he have a bit of a reputation of running away when the going gets tough? An assault on promotion requires a level head as well as a wise head.

Bloom is just. Complete King in my mind. Poyet is just a pawn, or even a prawn at this point.

Best thing really - GP's heart hasn't been in it for months now with all his comments and actions. At least now we can get a new manager in early and be well prepared for next season.
GP would have been well placed in the pantheon of great BHA managers but I fear he will not now be well remembered.
All those posters on here who have been giving it the IGWT for the last couple of years must be feeling a bit mugged now.

How about giving the job to Caldi, admired by his team mates, respected in the community and has been around the block a few times.

Now you have to be wondering whether or not I am joking.

I am not concerned about who we get, I trust Bloom to do the right thing.

Who ever he picks it has to be a person that the players can respect and one who will respect the club and it's fans.

Ken In Spain.

Yes we are blessed with having some good pros at the club but it looks like 7 can now be counted out, 3 released, 3 loans ending and Bridcutt to be sold.
Some have been offered new contracts, we don't as yet know if they will accept. Some had automatic triggers that ties them to us for another year.

My fear is that those that have been offered new deals might decline the offer. Every time a player leaves we have to find the money to replace them.

I don`t think we would get Di Matteo ( dream on ) or Martinez ( dream on ). I`m going, realistically, for someone like Mark Robins. Kenny Jacket is an honourable man, good manager and knows the championship so well, I wouldn`t rule Darren Ferguson out at all, could be a dark horse with his connections. I think it will be a surprise who TB gets in but he needs to get a man committed to the task who has been there before. No more giving ex players a foot up on the managerial ladder, a foot down the ladder for the three Amigos though. We need a youngish, British manager who can face reality.

He is not working, to my knowledge, and the Albion is a pretty good prospect for a youngish manager, who has already experienced the ruthless nature of a Premiership giant. Thanks for your cultured words though, I will bear them in mind. Plastic attitude? I think not.

Lots of initial anger and knee jerk reaction on this site currently and that's understandable.
Lets look at it logically,there has definitely been some issues over the past two months,starting with the failure to sign loan striker and then the Reading episode.since then its got worse with inuendos and no statements from the club,so both at fault here I feel.
the position now is that from being v close to a play off final and set for a real attempt at automatic net season,because of the recent events and the result of this last match we are now in a situation where we have lost the manager and his team.
The whole stadium and academy had Poyets input and all teams play his style of football. The majority of the current team are his signings,good or bad and the loan players have been attracted by him and his style of football.
If we are to continue in this vein,there are not too many managers out there that play this style,certainly not in the Championship or lower leagues.
So who does TB go for and is he prepared for the style to change,he ha recently applauded this seasons work, so he has to look to a proven experienced manager who can take the club forward. He also needs to take into account the extensive network of scouting and analysis work done by Poyets team,which has been very professional.
Whatever the decision it is crucial to the clubs immediate future. Get it wrong and we will struggle and be heading back the wrong way,getting it right though I feel will take at least 2 more seasons or so where we are again in a position to challenge. Disappointing all round for all concerned especially the fans but I do fear we are going to be treading water for a while.

No more giving ex players a foot up on the managerial ladder, a foot down the ladder for the three Amigos though. We need a youngish, British manager who can face reality.
Please not Darren Ferguson. He would know a defense from a wooden fence.

Built a team and won league 1, followed by finishing 10th in 1st season in Championship - same as Gus.

@Vegas Hang on a minute. Bridcutt hasn't been sold and the only words I have heard from him have been about doing better next season. The loanees have gone back to their clubs because they have to. Upson seemed rejuvenated here, free agent, Bridge has had his best season for years, free agent. Hammond has a year left on his contract at Saints, new manager there so who knows? They have all technically left us but that doesn't mean they won't be back.

There is so much speculation and the transfer window hasn't even opened yet!

Mr Bloom took a punt on Gus and I think it worked out pretty well for all concerned. Who is to say he won't do it again? I don't know him personally but have heard and read a lot of good things about him. I think we are in pretty safe hands, certainly in comparison to the chancers we have had in the past. He will do for me.

This does not happen 'overnight!' It takes time to build this into a team. I remember watching the unconfident style of football we played just before he started with us at BHA - down at the Withdean. In a short space of time this was changed. This has grown in time and has attacted players like Ulloa, Vicente, Bruno, Lopez, Bridge, Lua Lua, Buckley etc to enjoy playing the beautiful game with solid performances which put us in to 4th place this year. Now as I understand it the 'management' above Poyet was changed recently.. Shouldn't we be wondering why 'suddenly' Poyet is in this position. What's the term.. No smoke without fire? So what if Poyet did lead us to top flight football, this may have been the year to build on. Gus you are a legend, if the club ran out of money to support the rise it's a shame. We were so nearly there. Gus, the players and the fans all know we should have beaten Palace at home, so where has this come from? Being a coach myself previously it takes time to get the results you want (look at Fergie?) it looks like we are about to become another Chelsea, where managers change and players dont settle long enough to enjoy their football and play an unbeatable strength. C'mon Mr. Bloom, you saved our club once, this time its about keeping the one true person who got our players playing a unique style of football which has never gone backwards. Gus wouldn't put his job on the line surely if he didn't love what he'd worked hard to build! This has to be a call for help, supporting us to go up to Premier status which is where we WILL go next year with Gus and Bloom at the helm! From there, Gus would be at the great club he is claiming to want to lead one day! Why are some people so short sighted of this? You can tell he loves the club !
Most sensible post I have read here Challster - couldnt't agree with you more! That 4th place finish may evaporate very quickly when Jock McLeish or Neil Warnock & all the usual suspects come sniffing round! THE most important factor if Gus & TB cant be reconciled is to find another manager who can handle the style of play we have as Gus's legacy. Martinez would be the one. Being from the NW I know that Wigan have a very limited fan base and hopefully the relatively generous budget, fan base and method of play here, which has been copied from his Swansea team by Gus and many others, may tempt him. Wishful thinking - because I realize like you that more than anything we need to keep that style and NOT pander to various suggestions that would see us return to the dreaded Route 1 tactics which some people apparently prefer.
I know Gus team selection makes you question your own sanity sometimes ( only team I have EVER seen play 3 centre backs in one match ) but like yourself I think that you have to concede that he and his decisions have taken us so very far away from those days of despair at the Withdean. I like you no doubt would like to see the same team and management next year - 2 out of 18 draws as wins and we would have been there without a play off at all - incredible! If we do not get a suitable replacement then I cannot see a similar season. You need the right driver for the right car! -
Touche mate - nice to see the views of a coach who appreciates what has gone into season 2012/13 at the Amex!

This suspension hasn't got anything to do with what Poyet said on Monday, or for him listening to a Reading offer.

Everyone moaning and spitting the dummy over last the four days have been well wide of the mark.

This seems to be over a prank and a complaint, which is now under investigation.

Great point about those losers streaming out way before the final whistle. Watching from afar, that was more embarrassing than losing to Palace on a game screened world wide.

WE will probably never REALLY know the truth and why the suspension. Real shame, not heard of a suspension of a manager--so Bloom felt something had to be done and quick. I would like to think that Gus and Bloom can be reconciled, I have my doubts. And would things really be better going forward. Sad times and a bit of a vaccum to look forward for a few weeks maybe??

Employment law.

Paid whilst suspended is normal practice.

Dismissed without proof of breach of contract or gross misconduct resolves it's self with a cash settlement.

Dismissed for gross misconduct does not require compensation to be paid.

Dismissed for breach of contract also does not require compensation to be paid but on rare occasions, it can be.

I think we will hear that Poyet's position will be resolved by, 'mutual consent,' as I doubt that Bloom will hold out and wait for an approach for Poyet in order to collect the club's compensation, but he could.
You are partly correct. However, without seeing the terms of the Contract your comments are largely supposition. I do agree that whatever the terms, a Compromise Agreement is likely.
