Manager Said To Replace Pardew Has Been Sacked


We found it hard to believe the story today, that Newcastle could be lining up Brighton manager Gus Poyet, just in case Alan Pardew and Newcastle get off to bad start this coming season.

Gus Poyet – sensationally sacked by Brighton

But that was a major news story today, and as far as we can tell it came from Alan Oliver and the Sunday People.

But would you believe that Gus was told he had been fired by Brighton live on TV today, as Gus was a commentator on the BBC’s Confederations Cup game between Nigeria and Spain.

What seems to have happened is that Brighton posted on their web-site that Poyet had been sacked, and when he was told this on TV he said he not been told by his club, but Brighton insisted that Poyet had been informed of his sacking.

This is what Poyet said on the BBC:

“I think the BBC have got a great story! A manager getting the information that he has been released from his employment from the BBC during the time of a program is quite surprising.”

“I’ve still had no communication, no text, no email, I didn’t receive anything by phone.” “I think everybody, the viewers, can draw their own conclusions about the way that I have been informed by the BBC.”

“The only thing I am concentrated on is the appeal.” “It’s the right thing to do. I cannot say any more because after this I will talk a little bit more with my lawyers.”

Brighton failed to reach this year’s Championship play-off final, losing 2-0 on aggregate to Crystal Palace in the semi-finals, and for the last two seasons they have knocked Newcastle out of the FA Cup at the Amex Stadium.

This is the Brighton club statement:

“Gus Poyet has been informed by the club’s internal disciplinary panel his employment has been terminated. Mr Poyet now has a right of appeal.”

In mid-May Brighton suspended Poyet and banned him from the club, after he had told the Brighton players he was likely to leave the club.

So we have no idea if this has anything to do with Newcastle being after him – but we very much doubt it.

Whatever you think of Alan Pardew after one great season and one terrible season, he deserves a chance to put things right at Newcastle this coming season.

And it will be a litmus test on whether Alan is the right manager for the job at Newcastle.

What do you think?

    Repost;
    OK let me get this straight;
    MA knows DW who knows GP
    – therefore & IF [JFK + AP ] = -AP
    thus GP = Next manager

    Anybody calculate the value of DW in this equation?

    Really hope we don’t end up with Poyet. Has effectively failed at Brighton and has reportedly upset a number of the players. What’s more, he defended Suarez during the racism scandal. The mans a joke.

    Erm no thanks. Needs to carry on earning his stripes in the championship first.
    I want pardew out but only if the replacement is a step up.
    I like poyet as a person more than pardew but this is t enough to give him the job.

    People are saying they dont want poyet because he isn’t good enough, well unfortunately as mike ashley loves to disgruntle the fans, dont be surpised if hes appointed NUFC manager if that means pardew walks or gets sacked as long as ashley recieves his ‘fix’ (amusement from the fans amger)

    I for one though wouldn’t mind poyet as manager he had brighton playing lovely football with some quality spaniards contributing to the style.

    Although obviously we could do better but not under ashley.

    It’s getting that way mate…

    I just want to come on a blog and share some opinions on the club that I love and talk about some of the things that make it amazing. There’s nothing wrong with wanting something better for our club, but I really feel sorry for those people who look at every negative like it’s a complete disaster and then latch onto the next possibility like it’s the thing that’s going to make everything like it was under KK again!

    With the spectacles off, we have 7th highest valued squad in the PL, a shade above Everton’s. This includes the additions that we made in January, without which I believe we would be at least a place lower.

    Spurs’ squad is valued around 50% higher. These are figures from the transfrmarket website, not just random opinions.

    We have no European football and a very hard task to get into it in the short term. Our best bets for managers are experienced and solid (Pardew) or young up and coming managers using us as a stepping stone for a club in Europe. The latter is a gamble.

    He did score 8 in 14. Maybe should of given this guy a chance. He scored a hatrick in the NUFC U21’s to last year.

    You think Pardew has a better record and is a better manager. Thats laughable. Yea you are an idiot.

    Pottsclock

    Get over it, he doesnt want to manage a club with no ambition.

    Go away with every petty mistake or thing thats annoyed you about him including leaving your club.

    None of which stopped Brighton from over achieving in the last few years.

    Hes a good manager and the fact that you are spouting jelous remarks and trying to make him look bad reflect on the fact that he is infact a good manager that would be sorely missed.

    Give it a rest mate.

    I’d rather talk about possible targets and what needs changing or updated at the club, but you tend to get insulted for having an opinion other than pardew out, Ashley out, hoof ball etcetera etcetera.

    Never believe sports articles on a Sunday. Very little actually happens, and they have loads of space to fill, so they literally make up complete rubbish.

    Yeah! Glad you noticed!

    I’ve been insulted by quite a few people! Joy for Asha, Roddy and several others. I know I’m more intelligent than them though…

    For the record, I’d like to see a striker and a creative and quick attacking midfielder brought in. Other than than just shipping out some of the dead wood and replacing them with younger and hungrier players. I think we’re close for a solid top 8 team on the playing front.

    Oh, and I’d get a new PR team too…

    @ darnsarf

    You are missing the point. I am not saying we are a more desirable club for a manager than Spurs . All of the clubs in the top 7 other than Everton all have managers that seem to be going no where .

    So I do believe we are probably the most exiting proposition

    Depending on Campbell’s current ability and if shola stays I’d agree with one pacey striker, two depending on the shoal and Adam situation. Think we need another up and coming cb as cover if Curtis good isn’t there yet.

    Get Pards a couple of decent wingers and another legit first team striker and no serious injuries to deal with and he’ll deliver 7th, but so would any other manager outside the top 6.

    Even so, a decent side in the mix like that would be great, although surely we are big enough to aspire to a bigger tilt.

    stuart if you looked at my main point at toonarfa is pardews record early on in his career at reading then west ham was better than poyets has been so far now in another 8 years poyet has done that then fair enough but the point is hes so against pardew and then says poyets the best thing since sliced bread!?

    Pardew has 7 long years left on his contract, he will not be pushed out of the door, the man was unemployable when we employed him. We could get GP as an Assistant Manager and relieve AP of team selection and training, it may help to get rid of AP.
    ToonAfri @18…. I agree
