Poyet: We are busy despite early finish
Albion’s bosses are making the most of their season’s early finish, by getting to as many games as they can.
The Championship campaign ended nine days ago while divisions in England and abroad were in full swing.
Poyet has watched Chelsea twice in the past week but says, like assistant Mauricio Taricco and coach Charlie Oatway, he is also out and about at plenty more fixtures.
The Albion boss said: “We need to adapt to an early finish.
“It's strange but sometimes you complain because things are always the same “We are not going to complain because something is different.
“I’ve been at games. I’m not telling people where I am going. We’re hiding! Charlie and Tano are out too - all over the place.
“I always say football shouldn’t stop for so long in the summer but we need to adapt.”
Poyet has vowed to keep details of talks with under-contract plauer under wraps.
Albion confirmed on Friday they are not offering deals to Alan Navarro, David Gonzalez or Michael Poke but there could be more departures this close-season.
Poyet said: “We are a club who respects a contract and talks to the players.
“We have our plans. If other people then want to go away and talk that’s up to them.
“There’s nothing bad, nothing strange. People just want to know where they stand.”
Seagulls striker Craig Mackail-Smith is expected to be named today in the Scotland squad to play a friendly against the USA in Florida later this month.
