Poyet wins manager prize

The Argus: GUS POYET GUS POYET

Gus Poyet has been confirmed as the Championship manager of the month for August after Albion's unbeaten start to the season.

The Seagulls head to Bristol City tomorrow on top of the table with 13 points out of 15, following wins against Doncaster, Peterborough, Portsmouth and Cardiff and a home draw with Blackpool.

They are also through to a home tie against Liverpool in round three of the Carling Cup after knocking out Gillingham and Sunderland at The Amex.

Poyet said: "This is credit to everyone at the club but especially the staff at the training ground and, of course the players.

"The way we play individuals don't stand out so much. The award is recognition for the whole squad."

Crawley's Steve Evans missed out on the League Two award. That went instead to Rotherham chief Andy Scott.

We should be so proud of this tribute (probably the easiest decision the jury has had to make - especially as some of the other nominees said it was a no-contest). Congratulations to the Fans Reunited guys too, for their great work in trying to save Plymouth Argyle. Peter Reid deserves every bit of help he can get. We have a great manager, a wonderful team and a fantastic group of supporters. Well done to one and all...!

Shame Dunk didn't get a nomination in the player vote,... but I guess that would have been scuppered by the one-eyed Donny vote re that tackle.

OK before Mr Carrot gets in on the act,"what a disaster, kiss of death, manager of the month for what? Watch word GOING DOWN"
Now for the real supporters,
"Well done yet again Mr Poyet I really hope that the rest of the season continues in the way it has started onward and upwards.
Followed Brighton for more than 50 Years and the only thing that comes close to the success we are having is that day in 1983 when a certain Scotsman should have scored, the only day I swore in front of my Mum and Dad and they laughed.
Again well done Gus keep it going PLEASE!!!
