    So what it is? I thought it was Poy-ett but Mr Bloom said Poy-ay in the press conference.

      Poi-yay I believe would be the correct Spanish pronunciation.

      The T is silent as is common in South American Surnames.
      I've killed women and children. I've killed everything that walks or crawls at one time or another. And I'm here to kill you, Little Bill Archer, for what you done to The Seagulls.

      It's Poyay, you've got to be pretty damn dumb to think that a name without a 'tt' or 'tte' at the end is pronounced 'ett'

      Just because a name looks "French" doesn't mean anything.

      Fernet Branca ... pronounced Fernett Branca. And there used to be an Italian politician called Carlo Donat Cattin ... pronounced Donatt Catt In.

      What if there were no hypothetical questions?

      Gustavo Augusto "Gus" Poyet Domínguez (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈpoʝei]; born November 15, 1967 in Montevideo, Uruguay) is a former Uruguay international footballer and current manager of English side Brighton & Hove Albion. During his playing career, Poyet featured for teams including Real Zaragoza, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. After his playing career ended he moved into coaching, with spells as assistant manager to Dennis Wise at Swindon Town and Leeds United. Poyet was also assistant manager to Juande Ramos at Tottenham. Although his name is spelt with the 't' at the end of Poyet, this is a silent letter and is common in many South American surnames.

      BBC are pronouncing it POY-ETTT ... apparently after seeking advice

      For me -- I've always said POY-EH?

      Guess I'll ask the man himself shall I!
