Somebody is going to get hurt admits ruthless Poyet
ALBION boss Gus Poyet is ready for a player revolt over his team selection for tomorrow’s visit by Middlesbrough.
All eight of Poyet’s summer signings are available at the same time for the first time, with Andrew Crofts fit again following hamstring trouble.
Craig Mackail-Smith and Will Buckley are also back in contention after similar injuries, so Poyet has some big decisions to make resuming from the international break and he is expecting to upset somebody.
He told The Argus: “Someone is going to be out of the squad who is probably not expecting it and not going to be very happy about it but that’s what happens when you have a full squad ready to play a game.
“We are going to base our decision just to win this game, nothing to do with the next one (Tuesday at Leicester) or two weeks ago.
“Deano (Dean Hammond) and Crofty haven’t been fit at the same time, so this is going to be the first time they are competing to play in the middle.
“(Stephen) Dobbie was here but it was his first games when Macca (Craig Mackail-Smith) then got injured, so there are options.
“I think David Lopez proved what he is going to give us with Bruno on the right side, which is a great option as well. I don’t want to make too many changes but at the same time I am going to base everything on your performance.
“For me it’s perfect. I know somebody is going to get hurt, some player is going to get very upset, but for me as a manager it’s perfect. I prefer this, to be making decisions which you think are going to be best for the team. It’s more responsibility, which I like.”
