Gustavo Poyet

Recommended Posts

Let's give him his own topic rather than using the "New Coach" topic. Let's see what he can do tomorrow now that he's had some time with us. He did well IMO in the Panathinaikos given the two days of practice he had with the team, and his subs saved us the game.

Starting Tuesday he will be giving the team a "mini preseason" with some longer practices and more focus on fitness and tactics than we normally would do during the season. The long break came at a perfect time, and only Aravidis will be missing from practice on NT duty. I don't think Vargas or Baroja have to go to Venezuelan team this time. During this time he will decide what additional positions, if any, that he wants transfers in along with a new striker and center back.

Well let's hope so ... but I don't like the mentality of cheering when you drag away a win from Panthrakikos (with all due respect to Panthrakikos of course). I don't think we should've let Dellas go, even though it was his "own decision"...

I have no problem with him being pumped up for winning. It's his first, and hopefully, his first of many.

I think its a good thing he showed abit of emotion as it shows he is passionate for the job he is doing and after all it was his first win for him so by all means he can show abit of emotion....

I think Platella is a very important part of the squad and if we were to kick him out, or for him to leave come january, it would show a great deal of ignorance on Poyiet's part. He, just like Della believes that he can make Diego a winger, and switch the entire front line to cater to his (and Vargas' if vargas didn't pull what he did) needs. The sooner he realizes that you can't turn Diego into a winger, the better. Even if we acquire a really good RW, Platella still should have a spot on the squad, but what is happening now is a complete waste of a player who was constantly improving. 

 

Diego doesn't have the body or the endurance to play on the wing and muscle or speed passed defenders throughout the game without getting gassed. His best role is behind Aravidi and in front of Mandalo. Or to come in as a sub. Platella, you can say anything about , but the guy creates HAVOC on the opposing side because he is able to break into the box with ease. Not to mention he does a lot of little things that people don't acknowledge.

So apparently Poyet has been linked with the Swansea job, altho the PAE have come out to reject those claims.

Melissanidis, Do whatever it takes to keep Poyet at AEK for many years and give him support in the transfer market. Given the roster we have, and the win streak we are on, he is probably the best coach in Greece at the moment. He will lead us to a protathlima one day soon if you back him.

No he hasn't but he has got tutors who are teaching him Greek so surely this must say something if he is attempting to learnt the language.

 

He has done a fantastic job so far, read the other day last time AEK was 8 from 8 was 10 years ago.

 

He knows the game, he knows what he needs to succeed, he can attract players just because of who he is, he just needs the backing and support of management and then we can honestly mount a good title challenge next season.

Last time we got 10 from 10 was 10 years ago i think, we will equal that if we beat Atromitos.

Leta keep the run going!

Confident we can win at Atromitos as they will also have 1 eye on their 2nd leg midweek clash with PAO as the tie is anyone's so it kind of works in our favour.

 

Guys correct me if im wrong but from memory the last time we played there was that dreadful day we lost 1-0 and got relegated?

I remember that game we smashed them.

 

Thought that was the last time we went there, dark day, but who thought 2.5 years later we would be in this position and with this coach and the team playing with so much confidence.

One guy to thank for that, a lot of AEK fans seem to be forgetting that. Nobody in here really just on aek365 and facebook comments.

Dikefale I agree I really cant stand seeing people call him tight and bag him, do they realise where AEK would be if he didn't step in? The sad thing is some people just don't have patience, he isn't going to build a championship winning team in one season, but the team he has built is full of talent and with a few more faces we can only get stronger.

 

Juve is my prime example, they got relegated and it took them 5 years to get where they are and look at them now, ok we aren't going to be making CL finals if we do WOW but the set up and approach they took worked for them and it didn't happen in a season.

He is tight and stingy, that's a fact. No one is above criticism, he made a bunch of mistakes. Hand picking Djebour as our starting striker, spending less money than we did last year on transfers even though we made a ton of profits, and trusting Bajavic who thinks the game hasn't changed since the 90's and is the reason we started poorly. Poyet is the only thing he paid for, and he will leave in the summer if he doesn't get back in the transfer market.

No one asked for millions to be dumped into the team, but re p***** mou would spending 400k for an experienced center back other than Arzo hurt us financially or would signing a real striker during the summer instead of Djebour hurt?

It looks like he's starting to wake up at least.

Correct Original and I do agree and yes they made mistakes and will still make some along the way its only normal and many clubs suffer this at times, BUT as long as they see their mistakes and fix it then we as fans should be happy. The way the team is fairing now when I hear someone whinge it snaps me.....

 

Also agree with spending abit on a CB, but hopefully now that Tzane signed he may get game time.

Don't be so certain, I don't think he'll actually get any good offers from the Premier League. I think that If he wins the cup Melissanidis will throw money at him to stay just like he did when he signed, and back him in the transfer market.
