Poyet fumes after Albion's worst result of season

Albion players are crestfallen after Wolves snatch a point

Albion players are crestfallen after Wolves snatch a point

First published in Albion by , Chief sports reporter

GUS Poyet has branded Albion’s wasteful draw against ten-man Wolves as their worst result of the season.

Poyet was appalled by his team’s failure to secure all three points in the 3-3 stalemate at Molineux after Wanderers had skipper Karl Henry sent off just before the break.

The Seagulls let in two second-half goals, including an injury-time equaliser, having scored themselves in added time through a Stephen Dobbie penalty. Poyet told The Argus: “A draw was not good enough for us. It was the worst by far in terms of not getting a result, nothing to compare with it. “Not Swindon, Hull, Leicester, Blackpool where we were terrible and got away with it. It was too easy and we didn’t do it.

“It was very, very disappointing.”

Henry was dismissed by referee Scott Mathieson for a tackle on Liam Bridcutt, the fourth time the midfielder has been sent off in as many seasons.

Poyet said: “It was a red card. He (Henry) is a player who normally commits and I like him, I like a strong player.

“Unfortunately for him he was just over the ball. Ask Liam to show you the two shins, not one, both. It was very, very dangerous.”

Albion will assess the fitness today of Wayne Bridge, who was forced off late in the first half.

“Apparently his calf was getting tight,” Poyet said. “I don’t know if it’s an injury or not.”

The Seagulls’ third draw in four unbeaten games kept them in eighth spot, three points behind Saturday’s sixth-placed hosts Huddersfield.

To be fair, the quality of defending this season has been much-improved and the 'goals against' total show that. Therefore this slip should be treated in the context of the season so far. Ten-man Wolves should have been buried much earlier, so the main problem remains nearer the sharp end. At least we scored three times, which is something of an achievement these days.

Whilst the defending for their third goal was clearly very poor, the real cause of us dropping two points was the sheer lunacy of the player who gave away the freekick. Wolves had the ball on the touchline, they were going nowhere, there was no more than 2 minutes left. and what does our player do - commits a foul and gives them the chance to swing the ball into our penalty area - and equalise. Why on earth do professional footballers give away totally unnecessary freeficks in that situation? Crazy.

We are on target . How often down the years have we seen that a team that puts in a late run into the playoffs, is the team that goes up? Momentum and all....
That being so, as its only mid November, it is far too early to be setting the pace. Ideally we should be tucked in just behind the top six at this stage, in about 8th (check), playing quite well but not quite clicking, (check), creating lots of chances (check) but not quite putting them away yet....
You can't have a late well-timed run to promotion if you are one of the early season pace setters.... :-)

Only half joking about the above - its fine being 8th in November.

Precisely this - it's a matter of getting the balance right. I'm encouraged by Bruno's display as a midfield playmaker in the second half v Wolves - possibly just what we need + if we had someone like Lambert playing alongside CMS we'd be top of the table now.

To those who say that the players we have bought are premiership rejects, well tell me, who should we buy and from where. Are these people saying that we should have signed the players that the prem teams wanted when they went shopping. Perhaps Berbatov should be wearing the stripes, or maybe Andy Carrol should be the target man we have been looking for.

Brighton are a solid championship level squad and we will be for the next few seasons, accept it and enjoy those seasons as we continue to build a squad good enough for the step up.

Gus will, or has already, let his players know what he thinks about our last game, goals conceded and chances missed, and he knows that the buck stops right at his door. I am looking forward to seeing what our next starting eleven looks like, he is not happy so now lets wait and see if he does anything about it.

Gus states that he is unhappy with the result. That's a fair comment after the way we played, and the fact that we should have easily taken all three points.
Wolves came alive in the second-half, and made for an excellent match. But sloppy match finishing has once again proved our undoing. The fact that Wolves might even have taken all three points is worth considering, because they certainly came very close to that, but for Barnes's awareness.
A poor result from such a dominant position. Gus is right, and he has every right and reason to make his feelings known.

Personally I will not accept that this group of players do not possess the ability to get promoted. Let's all join together to help that come true - and then we can deal with staying up when the massive cash injection has been used so wisely. Beliefs create reality.

I agree with your post and the interesting questions are, what will he do about it and what can he do about it.

At the start of the season most of us thought that we had strength in depth but today we have to ask if that is right. Gus has made some changes to the starting eleven, either by choice or forced thru injuries, but the results have not really come. I have lost count of how many different players have been talked about as needing a run of games on here, we can only field eleven but to listen to some on here you would think we could start with at least fifteen.

For me it's all about targets. Is our target to reach the playoffs, if so then ok. If the target is top ten then lets play for it. If the target is promotion I would say that that is not realistic. When the transfer window opens we will get a good idea of what the club is aiming for, players in and out will define our goal for this season.

Thank you Vegas for that constructive post. I'm certainly not here trying to be controversial and I respect the views of all people and their right to express those views freely in a respectful manner.

So I totally understand the points you make and I guess I'm so convinced from my own experience of life that before we can achieve ANYTHING in life we have to first conceive it in our mind.

A picture which The Evening Argus (as it was in those days) once published of Alan Mullery sitting at his desk at the Goldstone during his first spell at the club - comes to mind. It was of some birds (looking very much like seagulls) flying and the caption under said 'We Can - because we THINK we can'. Most of us remember where we ended up that season!!!

We managed to stay in the old First Division for a few years, against a lot of odds as well. I also acknowledge that there was a financial meltdown which followed and no-one wants that again. I believe we have too much financial expertise at the club to allow that to happen again.

I also believe that certain methods of handling players can work with lower division type guys but with more experienced players you have to adjust your approach. I don't believe there is ever only one way to skin a cat - so to speak. That is part of being a man manager.

I also like to see managers respect each other in interviews and respect different styles of play. One day we might be looking to one of these managers to help us - and, of course, they have memories.

I just don't feel it works to be disrespectful or sarcastic to anyone - including players, referees and officials - as it will always come right back at you - sooner or later.

I'm also not a great subscriber to constant changes other than for enforced reasons. I see that nearly all consistency comes from a reasonably consistent team selection.

I thought the performance was actually quite good against Wolves. Of course we expect to close out the game with only a minute to go. It seems to me that there is a bit of fear in the team - and I think it could be a fear of success!

I shall be there at Huddersfield looking for a great result.

Anyway, the proof of the pudding and all that! - my support of the club is total and unswerving. As long as the players keep believing in Gus and his methods and keep respect I am sure we'll be OK.

I agree with your post and the interesting questions are, what will he do about it and what can he do about it.

At the start of the season most of us thought that we had strength in depth but today we have to ask if that is right. Gus has made some changes to the starting eleven, either by choice or forced thru injuries, but the results have not really come. I have lost count of how many different players have been talked about as needing a run of games on here, we can only field eleven but to listen to some on here you would think we could start with at least fifteen.

For me it's all about targets. Is our target to reach the playoffs, if so then ok. If the target is top ten then lets play for it. If the target is promotion I would say that that is not realistic. When the transfer window opens we will get a good idea of what the club is aiming for, players in and out will define our goal for this season.
Thank you Vegas for that constructive post. I'm certainly not here trying to be controversial and I respect the views of all people and their right to express those views freely in a respectful manner.

So I totally understand the points you make and I guess I'm so convinced from my own experience of life that before we can achieve ANYTHING in life we have to first conceive it in our mind.

A picture which The Evening Argus (as it was in those days) once published of Alan Mullery sitting at his desk at the Goldstone during his first spell at the club - comes to mind. It was of some birds (looking very much like seagulls) flying and the caption under said 'We Can - because we THINK we can'. Most of us remember where we ended up that season!!!

We managed to stay in the old First Division for a few years, against a lot of odds as well. I also acknowledge that there was a financial meltdown which followed and no-one wants that again. I believe we have too much financial expertise at the club to allow that to happen again.

I also believe that certain methods of handling players can work with lower division type guys but with more experienced players you have to adjust your approach. I don't believe there is ever only one way to skin a cat - so to speak. That is part of being a man manager.

I also like to see managers respect each other in interviews and respect different styles of play. One day we might be looking to one of these managers to help us - and, of course, they have memories.

I just don't feel it works to be disrespectful or sarcastic to anyone - including players, referees and officials - as it will always come right back at you - sooner or later.

I'm also not a great subscriber to constant changes other than for enforced reasons. I see that nearly all consistency comes from a reasonably consistent team selection.

I thought the performance was actually quite good against Wolves. Of course we expect to close out the game with only a minute to go. It seems to me that there is a bit of fear in the team - and I think it could be a fear of success!

I shall be there at Huddersfield looking for a great result.

Anyway, the proof of the pudding and all that! - my support of the club is total and unswerving. As long as the players keep believing in Gus and his methods and keep respect I am sure we'll be OK.
What a good post. Like you WS, my support of the club is total and unswerving. Like you I'll be there at Huddersfield.

If nothing else all this bickering about who is right and who is wrong regarding our performances of late, does go to show how far we have come in recent years.

It wasn't that long ago when we would have been bemoaning how close to relegation we were now, well now we complain that we are not top of the championship division, I see that as progress.

If we are not ready for promotion, and Gus has said we are not, then the youngsters that appear usefull now might be the backbone of the team that will be good enough, maybe in three seasons or so.
JFC, Barker, Dickenson and others should be able to start, if good enough, in two or three seasons time. I hope they get contracts long enough in duration that it means we can keep them if they want to stay. . .

Does anyone think that GG might be rested too?
Interesting regarding whether the skipper needs resting. I feel that he has been a wee bit off it the last few games and if you watch the Wolves equaliser in stoppage time he was out muscled by Johnson. Even though is is smaller in height I dont reckon El-Abd would of been. GG probably could do with a rest. Not sure Gus will leave him out as he is his on field leader.

Does anyone think that GG might be rested too?[/p][/quote]Interesting regarding whether the skipper needs resting. I feel that he has been a wee bit off it the last few games and if you watch the Wolves equaliser in stoppage time he was out muscled by Johnson.

He wanted to play for us for less money than Palace offered but we told him to take it.

For what it's worth, he lives in Brighton.

Now do as tug says and run along now.
like i said lack of ambition on the clubs part.im not an idiot,just stating facts.if they paid him what the guy was worth before contract negotiations stalled we would be in the top 2 and not chasing cp.common sense,bad management.its called looking after your prize assets.now run along like tug says

the truth hurts doesnt it? your obtuse comments prove that.over and out.
Ok one more try,IF you "are in the know". Exactly where is Vicente,is he returning and if so when?. Who if anyone are we looking at,either on loan or to buy?. Is Gus going to change players/formation/ta

ctics for Huddersfield (this one i would`nt want the opposition to know of course) but im sure you get my drift. Anyone can make the claims that you have,but can you back em up??. Maybe you should take Hovite`s advice and go for a drink with all your mates,you could ask GM to join you,and maybe you would all fill a telephone box!!.Maybe!!!...UTA
it wouldnt be right for me to tell you the exact source.lets just say it was a good friend of glenns.is it possible to comment on here without getting lambasted by screeming qu**ns.

We are on target . How often down the years have we seen that a team that puts in a late run into the playoffs, is the team that goes up? Momentum and all.... That being so, as its only mid November, it is far too early to be setting the pace. Ideally we should be tucked in just behind the top six at this stage, in about 8th (check), playing quite well but not quite clicking, (check), creating lots of chances (check) but not quite putting them away yet.... You can't have a late well-timed run to promotion if you are one of the early season pace setters.... :-) Only half joking about the above - its fine being 8th in November.
Excellent post and I second your thoughts toongull. Taking an impartial and un-emotive look, the overall stats at the moment ain't looking too bad: Six wins, six draws and four losses. Promoted teams can usulally 'afford' to get beaten 10,11 or even 12 times. So, with THIRTY games remaining anything could happen. Hopefully we'll come good.
Just like to add that although the general banter is great, not being able to get to the Amex on a regular basis, the most valuable comments on this board come from fans (of either team) who were actually at the match.
UP THE ALBION V THE (not so terrifying) TERRIERS!!
