Gustavo Poyet

Recommended Posts

So, so disappointed. In my opinion he was a great coach for AEK, had passion and could attract good players to the club (if he had any money to spend). I understand AEK can't over spend, but this is bullshit. Poor decision but a club and league that is a joke. Hopefully no future signings ask Poyet how the SuperLeague is....

Thank you Gustavo for igniting passion in the team, playing good football and giving us a top 3 finish!

Astounding.  I thought Meli had ambitions and a couple of spare dollars in his back pocket.

He is not legally allowed to spend money at Aek. And if he can easily finish ahead of PAO and PAOK spending bread crumbs.. There is not much incentive.

Let's not get carried away, in most games under Poyet we couldn't string together three passes in a row. We weren't playing good football, just smart football. He still did better than any other coach could do with this roster.

I think both sides are at fault here now that things are more clearer.

 

Poyet dug his grave by announcing he was leaving before he had an answer from AEK, seems he had another offer on the table and pushed AEK to give him an answer. Aint the 1st time Poyet has done this. He also did ask for a lot of money to stay on, still no excuses both sides could've handled this more professionally.....

Amo AEK told him they would let him know by end of season, they pushed for an answer this week. How can AEK give him an answer right now when the semis and playoffs are on? Surely his focus would be on that more than anything.

 

Poyet F***ed up by going to the media and saying he wont be there next season, that for me was the biggest m*****a he could have done.....

 

As for what he asked there have been a few figures thrown around, yesterday I heard $2.1 for him then $1.6 for him then its $1.2. I do agree we have made money from sponsors to have this money available and if Meli is serious he would give it, but again we don't know what goes on behind closed doors.....

Of course he had other offers this is why they pushed AEK to answer this week that's not half obvious. As a coach you should care because after all it was your hard work that got the team to where it currently is, so to say why would I care I don't agree with, coaches live for these challenges

100% I agree Amo but AEK did say they would give him an answer toward end of season, not that it makes it better but he new this.

 

With the media how he went and said he wont be at AEK next season, that is where he F***ed up and its not the 1st time he has done that. If AEK had said a straight no to him then I wouldn't have an issue with it but he went and said it knowing he was still waiting for an answer, maybe he did it to push management, maybe he did it cause he's arrogant, who knows...

 

Anyway he is gone and we need to move on and hope we get someone of his calibre again

So basically Meli is a billionaire but has the spending power of this guy.

In my opinion he was in breach of his contract the moment he mentioned that he would leave if an English offer came his way. He basically lost all credibility for me that day, and his case today would have stood if not for those comments. However, since he did make those comments, I now think he is unprofessional enough (off the pitch) to announce his departure from the team RIGHT before one of the most crucial matches of the year. Whether the president wants to make signings happen or not, you keep these types of comments behind closed doors. 

 

I guess well have to wait til the summer time to see if Poyet is right or just trying to cover his tracks.

If he can clean the money he will, see AEKs brand new offices.

Poyet dug his grave by saying he was leaving at season's end, don't care who you are you don't come out and say that when you haven't been given a concrete answer from the club. Plenty of coaches around the world have been in the same position yet they stayed professional about it, yet Poyet wanted to play the hard ass and it back fired on him, as I said before its not the 1st time he has done something like this.

 

We move on no need to dwell on the past

Should Bayern have fired Pep when he did the same?

Difference with Pep is he had signed a deal with City, where as Poyet wasn't told we didn't want him, he made that decision on his own to say he wasn't staying on. Im sure Bayern new Pep was going and announcing it was a decision by both sides, not one side.

I don't see how Poyet is a villain but Pep is not. They essentially did the same thing. Meli let his ego get the better of him.

How did they do the same thing? One signed a contract the other was told he would get an answer on his future, don't let your hatred get in the way of reality.

 

Meli let his ego get the better of him? So you find it normal for a coach to say he is leaving at season's end when he wasn't given a formal answer by the club and a day before our biggest game? Thank god people like you don't run clubs......

I honestly don't see the big deal. When Valverde did the same with us yeah it was disappointing, but such is the profession...This has nothing to do with my "hatred" for AEK. If anything I feel sympathy for our former rivals. They (Aek, Pao) are shadows of the sort of clubs they once were, and I genuinely would like to see them get better soon.

Considering we have made Europe and the kypello final, I don't agree with the above, the joke is on everyone else who spent millions while we spent $160k got into Europe and a kypello final!!

If you are happy being 30 pts from the title that's on you, but I think a club like yours or Pao and their supporters deserve better.
