Poyet unhappy after draw

The Argus: Gus looks thoughtful at Wolves (photo Simon Dack) Gus looks thoughtful at Wolves (photo Simon Dack)

Gus Poyet admitted Albion threw away a great chance to grab an away win at Wolves today.

The Seagulls played more than half the match against ten men but were pegged back to a 3-3 draw when Roger Johnson scored for the hosts in injury time.

An angry Poyet said: “I’m disappointed. As a group, we let too many people down today.

“It was not my team on the pitch.

“We don’t play for 3-3s, 4-4s, 5-5s. First we need to do the basics.

“It’s always someone, it’s always “because”, but it’s not good enough."

Poyet was unhappy with how his side failed to make the most of their one-man advantage after Karl Henry was dismissed when the score was 1-1.

He added: “We didn’t use it the right way. We didn’t know as a team how to play.

“We didn’t know how to take advantage.

“We didn’t know how to maintain that scoresheet for long periods and to go 3-1 up, 4-1 up.

“There is no one to blame apart from ourselves.

“There are basics in football and you need to be aware. Unfortunately we didn’t do it. It’s a bad day.”

Don't you just love it when a 3-3 draw away at a side just relegated from the Premiership stimulates disappointment? It sounds as if this was 2 points dropped but it's yet another game where we played our opponents off the park.
I am happy to say that my glass is half full and this kind of performance and result is a source of real optimism for the rest of the season.

At last. Someone with a positive take on it all. Couldn't agree with you more. It shows how far we've come to be disappointed not to beat Leeds and Wolves after outplaying them for large periods. Onwards and upwards!

Ignore Freeloader Southwick seagull, he is only on here to manipulate the board.

All he does is submit stupid comments under different names and it suddenly looks like everyone is disappointed.

All in all a great game!

On the basis of LuaLuas' performances last year and on his brief appearances this year, presumably the manager is not convinced that he will bring any improvement to the team. I think Lua Lua is now significantly down the pecking order.

It does sound like two points dropped but as others have already said, it was against a team only relegated from the Premiership last year and we would have settled for a point before the game.

Good to see us scoring again though and although we have conceded three it is the first time.

We are still building this team and, personally, I prefer Gus to be frank and honest in his explanations rather than telling us fans what we think we want to hear.

Not sure whether KLL would have made much of a difference. Not his fault but we seem to play the ball to his feet nowadays and I think this causes him to struggle. Two seasons ago, we'd knock it 10-15 yards ahead of him and he'd use his pace to win the ball and beat defenders. Not sure playing to his feet makes the best use of his pace.

Okay it wasn't a great day at the office but as usual out come all the negative whingers who seem to delight in running the club and the team down!!

We've come a long way under Gus and we still have a long way to go. Did any of the moaners listen to Gus' Radio interview this week?

Perhaps all you moaners would like Adkins as the next manager-I mean he's doing so well isn't he?

The Club IS moving forward and I for one would prefer slow,steady progress unlike Southampton who will be with us again next season.

I believe Gus will get us in the Prem but it may take 2-3years.
We really missed El-Abd today and if anything we didn't have someone with the nous to direct and take the team forward in the right way against ten men.

The REAL fans are with you Gus-as for the rest-go and support Crawley!!!

A rare voice of reason. The optimistic are few. I know it's easy to be downhearted and despondent after a result that on the face of it is disappointing, but I think I would always have taken a point away at a team who has spent the previous several seasons in the top-flight.

I still sense that quiet optimism remains amongst supporters. I commented a couple ot times this week that we would get something out of this match and I think we will against Huddersfield, despite their trawling in of three loan strikers - Simon Church being the latest. Difficult to comment definitively on the match when you are not there but very pleased that at last Dobbie is being integrated into the team and on this occasion, I think the manager was shrewd with his use of our most precious asset - Will Buckley. I just want to see Hoskins have some meaningful time on the pitch and unless someone posts that Barnes was a brilliant substitution today, I would have liked to have seen Hoskins on.

I am not so sure that Gus is right about today, maybe when he has had time to sleep on it he might think a little different.

We came from behind twice and shows something. Ok maybe we didn't defend well but we got back in to the game. The fact that three different people got their names on the score sheet for us great, it shows that more than just CMS can do it.

People seem to think that just because your opposition goes down to ten men they become cannon fodder but so many teams have proven that not to be right. Ten men often develope a resolve that might not be there when eleven are on the field.

As the manager of our club I support Gus but today I think his comments a tad harsh and he offers very little, in fact nothing, as a compliment to Wolves for what they managed to accomplish today. . .

Back from the game, Wolves were a very poor side, however, we were just to slow in the midfield and never really look like creating an opening in the first half. Lopez looked out of his depth, never wished or attempted to go past anyone. When we did look to counter it was like a pension day rush to the local supermarket checkout, we would hesitate and end up heading backwards. Yet when wolves broke through the number 15 it was with pace and ran direct asking questions of our defence. I think two of there goals came from Orlandi not following his man and ball watching. Bridcut, apart from the horrid ball that gave the second goal away was a class above anyone else on show today. Feel sorry for CMS, so many good runs of the ball when we go to counter yet none of his colleagues ever look to turn the defence and thread his runs. Still it was an entertaining affair, which I would rather watch than a drab 0-0

All the many negative posts I've read tonight would have been soooh different if we had won 3-2.

Grow up....one sparrow doesn't make a summer (but might make a Scunnie!)

I do like Gus....he is passionate and a bad loser...which in a way is good-because it shows he cares and wants us to get to the top, but he needs to take life more calmly because you can't win every game.

A worrying aspect of our play this season is that we don't seem to be able to hold onto leads for very long. We dominate...and if we go ahead we then try and hold onto what we've got and instead of making sure our opponents can't get the ball we resort giving the ball away far too cheaply .
Gus needs to change our mindset when we go infront.

A good passing side should open up a team with 10'. That being said we created 10 chances.. Take them this season and we would be top.. Massive change would be a goal scoring midfielder.

Forget talk about a ex premiership club. Wolves in a very poor run of form and the Albion out classed a poor side even with 11 men and should have easily been 3-1 up and killed the game off.
Today the chances were made but simple chances missed. Also I believe tactical error at the end for that last corner when there were three were left up front. Not enough bodies to put anybody on then posts – result 3 -3.
Lopez very disappointing, Bruno has forgotten how to defend. As usual there was great support from away end.
As Gus said we will never have a better chance to win an away match this season.

I wonder why Gus left it until we were 2-1 down to bring on Buckley. Half-time would have been an ideal time for him to come on, and with the man advantage we probably would have won the game convincingly. I think his substitutions are always made far too late. Even so, when he did come on, he scored within 8 minutes to get us to 2-2... and after going infront with 1 minute left it should have been game over. I wasn't there but we always seem to defend far too deep when we are in front, especially in the last 5 minutes.

Have to agree with WhitehawkBoys but I'm wondering whether Gus could do with having a little chat with Harry(Redknapp) and ask him his advise on a few tactical issues! We go out all guns blazing against Leeds and batter them for 25mins...4 days later we show a team with very little about them TOO MUCH respect. Are Tanio and Charlie doing their bit for GUS???

Some seem to forget that having a player sent off can actually galvanise a team into performing well, and that is what happened today.
Wolves are not the side that was relegated last season, they have many new players, as well as a new manager and backroom staff, so are a different proposition completely.

Remember that home match with Burnley last season? We were down to 9 men after two red cards, and yet played some amazing stuff to keep the score to just a 0-1 loss. In fact an equaliser looked on the cards at the death as well, so a depleted team is not an automatically defeated team as some on here suggest.

It's good to read the decent comments.

The others are ignored!

Just have to add to the positive vibe....

We are playing so much better away from home than we did last season. It doesn't bear comparison. We played some lovely football today. The first goal came completely against the run of play after we had dominated possession. The front 5 all looked comfortable on the ball and the one touch interplay between them was a joy to watch. If there is a negative then at times we looked a bit like Arsenal and seemed to be passing the ball to each other for the sake of it - just need to remember to stick it in the goal thing occasionally boys.

We are creating so many more chances than last season - on another day we'd have won that game by a mile. The style of our play is absolutely what I pay my money to watch.

Bridcutt was majestic again in front of the back four and dominates the pitch between them and the halfway line. The negative? - once he ventures over the halfway line he looks less than ordinary. A fish out of water. Regularly been giving the ball away in the opposition half in recent weeks and did it in howler style yesterday for their 2nd goal.

Greer seems to at last have been told to stop hitting the 40 yard cross field pass and was vastly improved on recent weeks.

Bruno was a delight when he pushed into the playmaker role for the last 20 minutes or so - although would be interesting to see if he'd be so composed and masterful with 11 players on the pitch for the opposition.

All in all a terrific match, and came away (as against Leeds) very pleased with 95% of the performance and disappointed with the result. Just occasionally we get a little sloppy (over-confident?) and are made to pay for it.

But the improvement is evident to anyone who watches regularly. We are on the upward curve and I have no doubt that we'll reach the promised land. Not convinced that it will, or should be, this year but we'll get there.

We need to be more clinical and then we'd be out of sight before our occasional sloppy error mattered. That was certainly true yesterday.

We still haven't beaten any of the teams that fancy themselves for a shot at promotion which is why I don't think we'll make it this season.

But we'll make it. Provided Gus stays.

I do like Gus....he is passionate and a bad loser...which in a way is good-because it shows he cares and wants us to get to the top, but he needs to take life more calmly because you can't win every game.

A worrying aspect of our play this season is that we don't seem to be able to hold onto leads for very long. We dominate...and if we go ahead we then try and hold onto what we've got and instead of making sure our opponents can't get the ball we resort giving the ball away far too cheaply .
Gus needs to change our mindset when we go infront.
People have short memories. Until the Blackpool game we were the only team to never lose a lead once we had it.

Unfortunately we haven't been consistent so far. There is no clear pattern. Sometimes we find scoring easy - sometimes we don't. For the first dozen games we barely conceeded a goal and now we seem vulnerable. I have faith that it will all come together soon. We are still in a good position. Buckley's goal was class.

Positives; we scored 3 goals from 3 different players, played Wolves off the park when they quite obviously upped thier game when they lost a player but negatives are we should learn to shut up shop when ahead and stop these silly injury time sloppy goals. There are some class sides in the championship and the Seagulls are one of them. Not good enough for the Prem, nor most of the players nor Gus and Co. Things will change in time but not overnight. No point doing a Blackpool or Southampton.

Having listened to an interview with Gus on our local radio station covering the game, it infuriated me that yet again Gus distances himself from the team by claiming that that this was not his team. Well just a reminder Gus, it is your team and its time that you took responsibility as a manger, and that anyshort comings are down to you. When you said that if the fans blame you for this (good away) result, then you will retire and spend your time at home, then why dont you do us all a favour,then maybe we can get a manager that understands attacking football especially when playing at home, and a manager that shows unity at all times. lastly, a message to our local radio station. The coverage is excellent, however please replace Warren "cant string a sentence together" Aspinall for some one who can.

For someone like me your excellent post Gazza is most helpful since it puts our performance in perspective.
Obviously one is disappointed that we didn't get all three points but it is reassuring to see the Albion scoring goals again.
One thought is that once Bridge had been substituted after 35 minutes we only had 2 (Bruno and Greer) of our normal back four on the pitch. I wondered if that 'unfamiliarity' in any way contributed to our defensive fraility ? Any comments ? Correct me if I am wrong but I read that the cross/free kick from which Johnson equalised came from our left flank.

Can add Don Pedro to the troll list then.

When Gus says it isn't his team, he means it isnt his team playing the way he has told them to play. There s only so much a manager can do. After that you have to rely on the players on the pitch making the right decisions.

We have so much to thank GP and TB for. Just look at the match day experience - the new academy set up - AIC. The quality of the matches we are seeing is a million times better than it was. Perhaps those of us who supported the club at Gillingham and the Withdean have a better perspective on it all ?

If you can't express a view on this site other than one that the Albion is totally amazing, they think you're a Troll!

Total weidos and certainly not friends of ours!

I wonder how many people would agree with a few things such as: zero teams in our division will win every home game. Zero teams will get a win or a point from every away game. Zero of those deemed, 'strikers,' will score in every game. Zero goal keepers will stop every shot. Zero defense packs will thwart every attack. Lastly, zero managers will get it right every game.

If you agree witht eh above, and if you look at where we are in the table, why the heck are some of you banging on about our team and management performances.

We are having a decent year so far and it can, and will, get better. .

Yes I go along with what I think is the vast majority view, that this is a decent year so far and it also has potential to end much better than it already is in my estimation.

Think we are feeling the same as Gus, what we have is close to being a really really good side .. Who will perform and score, it's missing chances, and then this Saturday .. It was back to poor defending.. Which we have not seen this season. Gus must be pulling his hair out.

Is it Groundhog Day? Many of the comments here read like the ones following the Blackpool game. We get a lot of posts on here from people who do not go to away games, giving opinion as though they saw the whole thing! For example, how many people commented that it took two blatant fouls – yellow cards – to thwart Will Buckley’s wing play at Blackpool? And that he then created the best chance of the match, for Dean Hammond, in the last minute – we could easily have come away with three points (albeit undeservedly). These are incidents that the papers don’t report and what the TV stations don’t cover in what they pass off as “highlights”. Bear in mind that, what you read or hear on TV, is what the media believe you should have. Don’t expect anything balanced from media people!

Similarly, on Saturday, we missed two good chances at the start of the second half. Had we taken them, we would be out of sight – game over. In every department except finishing, we outplayed Wolves. And we deservedly went 3-2 up with only added time left to play. Gus is understandably frustrated that we didn’t see the game out. We all are. But as many realistic fans have already pointed-out, this was a good performance against a would-be Premiership side. We are improving. We’ve come a long way in the last three years. There’s still more than a little way to go yet. Enjoy the journey – I am.
