Bookies put Poyet in Stoke frame

The Argus: Bookies put Poyet in Stoke frame Bookies put Poyet in Stoke frame

Albion boss Gus Poyet is among the bookies’ fancies to be the next manager of Stoke City.

Reports are emerging this after that Tony Pulis has parted company with the Potters although they have not yet been confirmed by the club.

Roberto di Matteo has been made favourite to take over should Pulis go with a best price of 4/1.

Mark Hughes is second favourite with most bookies but both Coral and William Hill have Poyet second in the betting.

Poyet is as short as 5/1 with Coral but punters can get up to 10/1 elsewhere.

The Uruguayan is currently suspended by the Seagulls and is expected to leave the club during the close season.

Gus will be in the frame for this one, no doubt.

Stoke fans had been getting increasingly restless with the uber-direct style in place and Pulis's attempts to introduce some creativity to their play have fallen firmly flat.

It seems it's just not his thing!

The fans are keen for a change of philosophy after a stabilising but dreary 5 year stint in the top flight.

Gus might well be the man for it (if he hasn't already tied up a deal with Fulham, Everton, Cardiff or Leicester, that is?!

I'd be interested to know Andy Naylor's views on this - he's on holiday at the moment though, I believe.

Poyet would have been in the frame for this job even if he wasn't suspended, or at least he would have been in the minds of the bookies.

This vacancy would have been just another chance for Gus to fulfill his ambition to manage a prem club.

There have been rumours/fears of Gus going to this club or that club long before his suspension but had he not had his problems with Brighton, had he not been suspended, I think an offer from Stoke would have seen him go anyway.

Stoke are the perfect low to middle order prem club that will allow Gus to prove his worth in the prem, or not as the case may be.

If it all works out for Poyet Brighton will have been a stepping stone to Stoke, Stoke could be his stepping stone to a bigger club. The board at Stoke must consider his, (Poyet's) long term commitment to their club.

Haha my thoughts about Pullis exactly!

Stoke may be mid table premier league (potentially) but no better than that. I believe Gus will look for more of a long term project like Brighton was (going to be!). Everton would be amazing for him to build (albeit on low budget) a long term project. Can't see stoke being to his liking. We will see though.

Brighton still an awesome job for anyone with the right profile and attitude to take us forward. Shame on poyet for taking us for granted??!

Gus is just suspended, everyone is talking like he is gone. If he wanted to go and had made up his mind then surely we would have had news by now.

Good managers get linked with positions all the time and bookies odds are based on bets placed not information.

One step at a time.

I doubt that there will be any further news coming out of the club while the investigation is going on, and people are suspended. It would be crazy for anyone to say anything, as you open the club up to allegations of unfair or constructive dismissal. Please be patient.

Lets face it ,it must be complicated with lawyers everything will take longer to sort ,whatever the out come. Gus stay or go( which does seem likely).
No Pullis here please although you have to say (and we nearly to a man or woman) he has done a great job in his time there in keeping them up.
Interestingly from Gus perspective their budget spend has been only 3rd behind Man City and Chelsea in the last 2 years.
Beware Gus of a big budget it comes with big fan expectation!!? And may be this has been the downfall for Tony ?

Di Matteo versus Poyet for the Stoke job ?

1.5 hrs up the road for Di Matteo to get to Stoke (lives in Leamington Spa, versus 3.5 hrs for Gus (lives in Bromley I think). Easier to get to Gillingham Gus.

Premier Lge Management experience (Di Matteo YES, Poyet NO).

Champions Lge experience as Manager (Di Matteo YES, Poyet NO).

Speaks good English (Di Matteo YES, Poyet Not so much).

Lack of hair and thus likely to carry on with the obligatory Pulis baseball cap on the sidelines. (Di Matteo YES, Poyet NO).

Likely to accept position at small budget club (Di Matteo WHO KNOWS, POYET NO CHANCE)

Managed a team who wear those horrible stripped shirts (Di Matteo YES at West Brom, Poyet YES). Ah, they have something in common. Everyone knows teams who wear stripes never win anything.

Ah, jesus, you can tell I'm bored can't ya !

Anyhow - Di Matteo is favorite for this one. That cuts one potential off of our preferred manager list. Who's left ?

My guess is that the club are negotiating with Gus with regards to a pay off in the absense of a job offer from another club.

It might also be that they are negotiating a lower release fee if another club does make an offer.

The generally agreed release figure is thought to be around 2.5 million, Gus wouldn't want this figure to block his move out of Brighton and the club wouldn't want to lose too much of the compensation they are due.

The first option costs Brighton money, the second earns some money.

I guess there is a third option, maybe Gus goes with zero money due to breach of contract but we still get a payoff if and when he finds another job.

But seriously - how long does it take to hold an investigation into a poo in the dressing room, and a silly " I might not be here" comment Gus made to the team the day after the poo saga.

The Poo thing is not even why he's suspended so the investigation can only investigate the comment and at the outside maybe the dreaded email he sent about it. What else is there to be investigated. I'm sure if you ask Gus what he actually said the players he'll just tell ya anyway, so what exactly is everyone actually investigating ????

Interesting to speculate but impossible to know what is happening at Brighton. I don't expect the investigation to continue for long, as it is in no ones interest. Would love to hear confirmation of Upson's signing, which would indicate continued good work behind the scenes.

LATEST FROM HOLLAWAY on Poo-Gate. This stuff will go on for years !

Crystal Palace:
Ian Holloway grateful for dressing room prank:

Ian Holloway has thanked whoever left excrement in the away dressing room at Brighton's Amex Stadium ahead of their play-off semi-final second leg.

The Crystal Palace boss says it helped fire his players to victory and a place in the Championship play-off final.

“It must be difficult, with a stadium like that, to stop a complete lunatic trying to spoil what Brighton do”

"I didn't have to gee the players up at all, I had to calm them down," he said.

"It never ceases to amaze me how low some people go but how stupid is that person? I have to thank whoever it was as they got Palace to play like that."

Brighton have launched an internal investigation into how the incident was allowed to happen.

Palace and the Seagulls are bitter rivals, stretching back to the 1970s when Terry Venables and Alan Mullery were the clubs' respective managers.

"You have to act with dignity and I believe Brighton have," Holloway added.

"It must be difficult, with a stadium like that, to stop a complete lunatic trying to spoil what Brighton do - we all know what a good club Brighton are."


Becoming a real snore now isn't it !

I know where I would rather be and the better potential that BHA offers, but I guess I am biased. After all Stoke can't even afford to enclose their corners, so it must be pretty chilly in the winter for our warm blooded European brothers!!

My guess is that the club are negotiating with Gus with regards to a pay off in the absense of a job offer from another club.

It might also be that they are negotiating a lower release fee if another club does make an offer.

The generally agreed release figure is thought to be around 2.5 million, Gus wouldn't want this figure to block his move out of Brighton and the club wouldn't want to lose too much of the compensation they are due.

The first option costs Brighton money, the second earns some money.

I guess there is a third option, maybe Gus goes with zero money due to breach of contract but we still get a payoff if and when he finds another job.
Yes,these things are tricky ,it would be good to get some money even if it covered Bridge's wages for another season.
Thank for your tornado updates yesterday,as usual it's not long before 'real' events that really do matter crop up.
There seem to be a plethora of prem and abroad jobs going that would suit Gus ,tanno and Charlie if this does drag on and even if it doesn't and they get any of the jobs. Can't help but think Tony B will have a wry smile.
As every day goes by and given our recent history Gus has had a good budget ,yes he has done well and with better luck we would have been promoted automatically,but I get cross thinking about how publicly he has moaned and this has been so disrespectful to Tony Bloom,he must be upset ,I would be. Tony no Billionaire . Gus must have made a few pounds himself ,wonder if he did want to stay if Tony might ask him to put some of his own money in!
No pinching a manager from someone else plenty of good out there without paying for them IMHO .
Bob Bradley a good shout espcially with continued rise of Mls.

Bradley would be my choice but it isn't going to happen.

One of the reasons I would like to see Bradley at the Amex is simply because he does not have a history in England, other than selecting teams to play against the England national side. He is not one who is on the managerial merry go round.

Something else I like about him is that he is willing to give young players their heads, ability above age.

Bradley has had success at MLS club level and he has done well for America, I think that would certainly put him on an equall footing with a assistant manager in England and probably ahead. Gus was given a go so why not Bradley.

As a season ticket holder I am now sick of this situation. No comment by Paul Barber on the 3 Amigos. I do trust TB though but the "FANS" need a statement from the chairman in the next few days. I feel a bit isolated from TB at the moment but at the same time Gus Poyet, Tarricco and the hapless Oatway are totally not part of this football club any more in any way as far a I`m concerned and that`s a blessing in disguise in the long term. I need my chairman now. Come on TB. Don`t be held to ransom by anybody. Get them out now". UP THE ALBION".

Have to say i agree. Like the idea of a manager with as you say no history in England . Also want someone who can attract top players don't have to be a bridge/upson and perhaps his american knowledge will help bring a few on board.
Have to say a few people have singled out Barber for critisisim on north stand chat and i must admit problems around club do seemed to have stemmed from his arrival. Any thoughts?

Even a broken watch is right occasionally, even if accidentally.

Actually, because you are 100% all the time but only in hindsight, I'm going to call you Retrospective Nostradamus. (Feel free to look him up in Wikipedia.)
