PB.Time is a great healer. Deserved a clap despite going out a right knobber. Spoke very highly of Bloom on one of the Albion podcasts a couple of years ago and suggested the problems started only when Tony bought someone else into the club (shock).
Are you forgetting the rest of your comment?Correct, and correct . . . but it was Gus who laid the foundations for it.
Sorry got to disagree on that, Jeff Wood getting the sack after a ‘home‘ capitulation against Cambridge at Gillingham, prompted Dick Knight to seek out Micky Adams at Nottingham Forest reserves in April 1999.Yeah. I still like Gus. The Gus era was the start of everything we have today.
Jesus!!! Not in the same ball park. Can't compare the two in any sense.Archer, Bellotti and Stanley ??
The glass ceiling comment was because he wanted Van Dyke, and was told by PB he cost too much. That was part of the fallout.Poyet deserves his applause and I'm glad this has happened today. But make no mistake, he said there was a glass ceiling at this club - there wasn't - which is why Hughton will always be on a different level to Gus. Hughton not only took us to the Promised Land but also set the template for calm, methodical stability at this club that we still have today.
He is a legend in my book, so what if he left in a shitshow, without him, we wouldn't be where we are now. Love the bloke, love people who speak their mind too, just like Poyet. Gave me some lifelong amazing memories at Withdean.Wtf was that as all about today? Do people not remember his acrimonious departure? His actions after losing THAT match?
What was the applause all about?
