Poyet says victory is a turning point

The Argus: Poyet gets agitated against Hull Poyet gets agitated against Hull

GUS Poyet has hailed Albion’s 1-0 win over Hull as a turning point in their push for a Championship play-off place.

The seventh-placed Seagulls will be back in the top six for the first time since early October if they follow up their victory against the Tigers with another win at The Amex against eighth-placed Blackburn tomorrow night and Middlesbrough fail to beat Leeds at home.

Boss Poyet said: “I think it could be key, a turning point you can call it or key moment of the season. We’ll see how big or important it was depending on what we do on Tuesday.

“At the beginning of January we played four away and only Derby at home. It’s a big difference when we play at The Amex with the fans and the players liking to go forward a little bit more than normal.

“Now it’s the opposite, we have got three at home and one away so it’s there for us to take and win games. We’ll see, who knows? We’ve got a chance that’s for sure and the players are really up for it.”

Poyet used the league table as a motivational tool for his players to beat fourth-placed Hull in the tea-time kick-off after none of the other teams in the top 12 had won.

He told The Argus: “I didn’t check it to that extent but I knew we were in a great situation. We showed the players the table before the game and where we would jump to with a win.

“It was the first time we have done that but I thought it was important to see that, because sometimes you can find yourself not playing at three o’clock and then you are 15th in the table and it looks terrible but it’s looking very good for us.

“Let’s see where we are at the beginning of April with six, seven or eight games to go and then you can have a final sprint and get in there but it’s totally up to us. We are playing against teams that are in there, like Hull, so if we beat them they are six-pointers.”

Gus, I hope you are right, and we can now push on into the top 6. Clearly there are no givens, but I think we have served our apprenticeship in the Champ, and we have enough passion and skill to get there.

Another crucial game tomorrow night. A defeat would destroy any momentum Saturday's win gave us. I was surprised to see Blackburn are just below us in the table so the result could either propel them right back into it or go a long way to ruling them out of contention.

Lets go and win it!

There are much bigger and more established teams than us that have been in the championship for 3, 4 or 5+ seasons. It's a very hard league to get out of and we are competing excellently. Let's not get carried away.

Why do so many on here think Hoskins is better than CMS? In spite of his shortcomings I would opt for CMS every time. He works hard, ruffles defenders and when he is in the mood - scores goals. From what I have seen, Hoskins has more technical ability but is a bit lightweight at this level and his scoring record not as good.

Similarly Hammond vs Dicker. Hammond tackles better and scores goals. Dicker can spot a good pass but hardly ever scores and is not as good defensively.

At the end of the day its all about the balance of the team and thank goodness it's Gus and not us picking the team!

with their squad Blackburn (as well as Bolton & Wolves) should be right up there. The fact they have struggled shows what a tough league it is. Expect a hard game against Rhodes and in form CKR but the same side and shape and the same preparedness to shake it up should hopefully be enough to turn last week's doom and gloom into the beginnings of a play off charge.

Come on Gus, Vicente, Buckley, Ulloah and Hoskins to start. Blackburn will be dead and buried by half-time, particularly as they will have their minds on Arsenal at the weekend

Hoping Vicente starts in place of CMS (who was poor again). Would love to see more pace in the side, Buckley or LuaLua, but would be very harsh to drop David or Orlandi so I expect it depends on who recovers best after Saturday.

Feel for Hoskins, must wonder how bad CMS has to play before he gets a chance.

Another way of looking at things is what opposing defenders would prefer NOT to play against. I'm sure they hate playing against CMS, who harries and hassles and often forces a quicker ball than the defenders would like to play, resulting in us gaining possession. I love CMS for the way he defends from the front and helps us regain the ball. I agree his strike rate isn't what we hoped it would be but, as has been said before, we rarely break forward as quickly as would suit him best. But we now have Ulloa in the team to score the goals and benefit from CMS's hard work. I think that front two might well reap rewards in the next few games. I don't think we missed Barnes much on Saturday . . .?

Actually, I fully agree. I am not a poster who expects us to romp away with the league, or even the play offs. And there are many really good sides in the Champ, which is why the Saturday results are so difficult to predict. I do believe though that we have a squad that can win regularly in this division, and we may just go on a run, as w have in the past. We are difficult to beat, and I firmly believe we have as good a back 5 as anyone else in this division. We have creativity now that Vicente is back, and need to convert chances to goals.

Playing two up front gives Gus selection problems but so does having a fit squad and barring Greer that's what he has now.

The last time Gus had the luxuary of selecting from so many options was very early in the season, when we were top and winning games. Since those days we have added Upson and Ulloa, more options and we have Vicente back.

For me our results started to drop off when CMS got injured, the single striker approach was working but once he went out, no one was able to fill his shoes.

I could be wrong, I often am, but to my way of thinking Brighton are much more of a threat when CMS plays than when he doesn't. To keep making the claim that Hoskins should replace him is fine if you can give the evidence as to why, show his performance record and compare it to that of CMS.

Hoskins is class, and I feel bad for the lad as personally I don't think he's been given a run of games / a real chance to show what many of us here know he can do.

As I and others said before January's transfer window: the signing of a new striker would really put Hoskins back on the bench and with Ulloa joining that has been proved true, but rightly so.

I'm all for the support of Hoskins, but most people must be able to see that CMS is clearly the better and obvious partnership for Ulloa? Hell it's clear as day to Gus who has flat out said that the two will play together for the next few games. Hoskins has his talents but those talents are in the same vein as Ulloa's.

The beauty of the CMS/Ulloa pairing is the different skills and playing styles they possess. You need a mixture of skill sets on the pitch and these two provide that.

Sorry for the rant but these endless Hoskins posts are really bizarre, and that's coming from an ardent supporter of his.

Gus has said it is CMS and Ulloa upfront so why don't we leave the striker talk and discuss the midfield where the positions are still up for grabs!?

Barnes is suspended.
Hoskins has started just 5 matches and done what?
Buckley is a wide player as is Lua Lua.
Who would you replace CMS with?
Vicente would be an obvious one, with Ulloa the front man. Or Buckley freely roaming on both wings (and down the middle!). Hoskins an option of course - think he has looked good in those 5 games apart from actually hitting the net (Newcastle excepted).

Eddy I think he scored against Cardiff, made it 3-0 was it?
I could be wrong.

I think it would be really hard for Gus to start Hoskins, other than if one of the strikers was injured. As we all know we must win games now and even if CMS is not hitting the net the opposition know that he can, and that he is fast. With CMS on the sheet I feel sure that the oppo make decisions on how best to cover him.

Hoskins, maybe thru no fault of his own, has only started in five and when he and Dobbie started together it was not a success. It might be thta he could start and hit the net twice before half time, but the evidence doesn't suggest that would happen. I am sure he scored when we were 2 up at Cradiff and he scored when we were in front against a weakened Newcastle, can he get us the lead rather than making hay when the oppos are behind, not sure he can.

It means you don't really go to watch games.Plus more to the point it shows how little you know about football.

"All the press" said he was awful, you wrote, then give just two examples, one of which is an average score. You need to think about what you write a bit more...
