    I can't believe this article, Gus and the board had the chance to bring in the needed striker, the player needed to finish off some fo the chances we are creating but they didn't do it. Gus we don't have the players to get Bruno into the premier division and that is down to you and the board. Bruno will have his chance of prem football come january, when he gets bought by a prem club for a price that we can't say no to.
    But who? Everyone keeps saying we need a striker, but no-one has, as far as I am aware, named someone who is suitable, available AND willing. It's not just as simple as telling TB top open his chequebook - we can't mortgage the future on an ill-advised big-money signing who may not be the answer. This isn't Football Manager."

Gus: Let's get Bruno to the Premier League

That's for you! Bruno points to the North Stand after scoring

That's for you! Bruno points to the North Stand after scoring

First published in Albion by

Gus Poyet wants to see Bruno play for Albion in the Premier League.

But that means the Seagulls will be in a race against time to go up.

The former Valencia right-back, 32, scored and impressed in yesterday’s 1-1 draw with Bolton.

He has been one of the Seagulls’ best players this season, the first of his two-year deal.

Albion have the joint-best defensive record in the Championship but missed chances are hindering the club's promotion ambitions.

Poyet said: “I hope we can get enough players to make sure Bruno can defend the Brighton shirt in the Premier League and that it is not going to take us three or four years and Bruno will be 35 and we have to get another full-back.

“I think we need to start being fair with the players.

“He has a winning mentality. He was devastated in the dressing room, not only because he scored but because it is happening week in and week out.

“Especially when you are a defender and you are trying to do your best and you cannot win football games.”.
