Much as we are all big fans of Gus he has still yet to prove to us that he is capable of successfully running his team and providing us with some much needed consistency and decent performances after bringing in his own players.
We fans don't ask for much but the least we can expect is that the team he puts out every week at least try to play with some passion, effort, and commitment, none of which was evident yesterday and if this really is the best they can do then god forbid.
...
Gus Poyet, directors and scouting staff have had plenty of time to address the lack of striker power, finesse, quality and desire up front.
...
If Gus had had not put all eggs in one basket and shown a much earlier interest in Wellbeck we might have had a chance of persuading him to come back and for £16 million he was a steal.
...
I have every faith in Gus and agree with you he is the best manager we've had in many years but we do need to show a bit more ambition in the transfer market and considering the money his predecessors wasted on no hopers it seems we are now only willing to pay bottom dollar for players.
...
Gus needs to stop experimenting and settle on his 1st eleven because these opening games are crucial to the overall success of our season, and the fact we only have 2 points after three games doesn't bode well for the next home game against Spurs who lest we forget we haven't beaten in over 4 years.
...
After all the crap from PDC, Gus has done us proud and will continue to do so.
...
We have just finished the close season where Poyet gave all the young lads a run out and they were outstanding, so where are they now, I do not think he has had one even on the bench.
...
Poyet wanted players with Premier League experience.
...
Great result from The Hawthorns has to be tempered by Poyet claiming other teams were after his strikers and he wishes they'd just leave his players alone.
...
The more I think about it the more convinced I become that the management at SAFC by which I mean the administrators, the finance mangers, not Gus and his team, are not doing a very good job.
...
Gus has rightly said that the two weeks in Portugal are vital in terms of tactics and team planning etc.
...
I've listened to my brother rattle on about Gus, Borini and getting some luck for a change.
...
I wore it again the day Gus signed a new contract.
...
I'm pleased with the signings so far as I trust in Gus and I'm glad he has signed an extension as we desperately need stability at management level.
...
In answer to Jeff from Southampton's load of tosh below have you forgotten it was Poyet who sorted out the mess created by his predecessors.
...
Let's get behind Gus and support his endeavours to improve us rather than criticise everything he does.
...
It's hardly a ringing endorsement of Poyet as a great manager and or leader is it. It would seem supporters forget it was his tactics, player selections and strategies that put us into the mess we found ourselves in then from which loan and out of contract players and a manager who knew his career was heading down the toilet pan realised that having relegation on ones cv is not a good career move and pulled their collective fingers out of their dykes and did what they should have done weeks ago, clearing relegation with time to spare.
...
Great news that Gus has signed an extension to his contract until 2016.
I can't remember the last time we had a manager who stayed with us for more than 1 season.
Gus has proved his detractors wrong and should have been manager of the year for sorting out the unholy mess that was left by both O'Neill and Di Canio, let alone getting us to a cup final and orchestrating the end of season miracle.
...
Roll on August can't wait for it to start again.
...
I gather that Gus wants this and it sounds like a good idea.
...
I think Sunderland supporters should collectively do everything they can to keep Gus Poyet. He should be given the last say on any transfers after all his success should not depend on someone else.
...
Gus Poyet said recently that the guys that score consistently are the most expensive and rarest quantity in football today, well, Gus, this isn't something exclusive to modern football in the more than 60 years I have supported The Lads this has always been the case.
...
Poyet is still on probation for me and we still need a fundamental overhaul in the summer.
...
Over the past week I have become sick and tired of the UK national newspapers' harping on the forthcoming meeting between Gus Poyet and Ellis Short.
...
The lazy reporting where articles predicting Gus will leave almost every one being based on supposition and innuendo. "I will be meeting the chairman once the season is over. Has become, "I'm taking advantage of a clause in my contract that allows me to leave. You have to look long and hard in the national press to find the statement Gus made last weekend telling the press he expects to be at the Stadium of Light come next season. A statement Gus made about there being something wrong becomes an indication he wants more power as Head Coach, when in fact anyone who has followed SAFC for any length of time is fully aware that something is wrong and has been for years. As supporters we have almost become accustomed to end of season dog-fights to avoid the dreaded drop, we've also become used to changing manager/head coach on an annual basis. I think it was very brave of Gus to voice such an opinion and I trust Ellis Short and the board will accept the fact that a club that has an average home gate of 40K should be able have stability both on the pitch and in the leadership and that they give Gus and his staff the backing to rid the club of the wrongs that are holding it back.

...
Well done Gus, that's surely the final nail in the coffin.
...
So to Gus and all the lads, you've done us proud. If we still had shipyards they'd be the best place in the world right now. When he eventually moves on, they all do, we mustn't forget what Gus has done this season, and he should never, ever have to buy his own drink in Sunderland.
...
Now to Gus and the lads. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. You have achieved something so special. To stay in the Premiership is vital. Try telling supporters of Cardiff, Fulham and Norwich that they will be ok in the Championship. Take a look at Leeds, Notts Forest, Sheffield Wednesday to name but a few who would kill to be where we are.
Gus you are a gentleman and you belong with us. I admire you taking time to shake hands with opposing players regardless of the score which shows a true sportsman mentality.
Stay with us Gus. Move us forward now please.
...
I am now embracing the club, the magnificent Stadium of Light, the superb supporters who represent the club and the city so well by behaving like proper human beings wherever we go, each and everyone of the players and Gus in my arms never, ever to let go.
...
The maturity you have also shown in those games (and under Gus) is also very much noticed and appreciated.
...
Following a good hiding at Spurs, Gus recognized publicly that only by praying to forces beyond human understanding would keep the trapdoor to hell firmly closed.
...
Now that the fact has sunk in that we are still in the Premier League I think the club should give Gus a longer contract! He is an idiosynchratic genius who will follow his way and give us good football and decent results as well as reforming the club structure.
...
Gus will have the final say so giving him a longer contract must be the priority.
...
With Gus he has turn a team of no hopers into a team to be feared.
...
Whatever the reasons, Gus Poyet has managed to produce a nicely connected Sunderland team, and he has the good fortune of now being in a position of strength when he takes his decisions for next season's squad. We might be in for a surprise of two, but I`m quite relaxed having things in Gustavo`s hands, after all he does seem to be a bit of a bright spark!
...
We have really been through the wringer this season and we must have experienced every emotion possible to humankind, from the abject misery and desolation felt after the first 7 games, to the ecstatic euphoria felt at overcoming the Christmas curse and culminating in last night's victory when we performed the miracle of miracles that Gus prayed for.

Another SAFC rollercoaster has ended no doubt we

LMA STATEMENT ISSUED REGARDING GUS POYET
The LMA has issued the following statement regarding Gus Poyet, manager of Brighton & Hove Albion FC, in response to media speculation and a number of statements made by the Club.
Brighton & Hove Albion FC ordered Gus Poyet to attend a crucial disciplinary hearing today, despite the fact that he only returned from annual leave yesterday and the charges were not particularised until 13th June.
...
Just to be clear, however, we are confident that Gus will demonstrate there is no case to answer in this matter.

former playing colleague of Gus Poyet) took an unnecessary swipe at Leeds on the eve of the match.
...
Poyet suggested D'Urso held a vendetta against him and Leeds boss Dennis Wise going back to their playing days.
...
Poyet said at the time: "Andy D'Urso is not good enough for us and I don't want to see him at a Leeds match again.
...
Poyet has until October 4 to appeal. Leeds lost the tie at Fratton Park 3-0 and Poyet, who was sent off by D'Urso during his playing career, added: "He can't forget things he's done to us in the past.
...
Gus Poyet, Leeds' assistant manager, said:
...
Poyet and Wise watched the player in reserve team action at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday night in a 2-2 draw v Sunderland.
...
Wise was given the manger of the Month award for August but "won't be putting the award on his mantlepiece for what the Football League did on us".
...
Turning point for Wise and Poyet from fans ? The thawing of the frosty "support" for Wise and Poyet was evident at Prenton Park when the lack of booing for the Chelsea duo was conspicuous by its absence. Poyet had this to say : The support has been fantastic in the first two games.
