    Palace finish fifth, qualify for a richer elite competition and celebrate like they've won a trophy. Can't wait for the widespread criticism they'll get.
    In fairness they do actually get a trophy ;)
    Where's ours? :(
    Unfortunately you only get a commemorative mug.
    He's a fucking mug alright!

    I'm glad for Palace, they were tipped for relegation at the start of the season so its a massive achievement. The problem is it sounds like they are going to invest the money in improving the stadium and the like rather then on players to keep them up, its good in the long term but next season they might do a Derby.

    60mil for finishing bottom next season is insane.

    @TheSaint doesn't include parachute payment either. Nuts. Shows why teams were happy with 4th from bottom.

    Which is pretty much what Utd got this season for being champions. Madness

    Why the fuck do Crystal Palace get a trophy for finishing 3rd in the 2nd division.

    Pathetic

    Arsenal going crazy at the end of the match like they won something when they finished 4th is just as bad.

    Fucking money turning the game bonkers.

    So what did Poyet do to get suspended in the first place? Terrible PR foul-up on their part to ditch him when he was live on air with the Beeb.

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Maybe if he had bothered to turn up to the disciplinary hearings then he might have heard about his sacking before hand? No sympathy for him at all, Brighton are much better off now.

    @localnotail

    Complained about transfer policy during a Sky interview post-playoff defeat, IIRC.

    I thought he essentially pimped himself out to any interested clubs during that interview? Hard to imagine why the offers haven't been flooding in.

    Ah ok. Not very professional. He looked like he'd been crying after the match. Very shiny eyes.

    Apparently he was told before match of the day.

    Also, I don't see how he can appeal to get his job back. Probably just wants the money.

    I guess if he feels he has been treated unfairly then he is right to appeal to clear his name of this blight on his employment record. In his situation I can completely understand why he might want to appeal. I'm not suggesting that he'll want the job at Brighton afterwards though, if he wins his appeal he'll still resign imo.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    Tried to walk away from his  contract and join fulham and thought the club wouldn't get in his way. He also told the players he was buggering off after the Palace defeat.

    Poyet was always going on about wanting to join better teams but tbf he did take Brighton from league one to the championship play offs in a short period of time so even if the relationship between him and the club brokedown I think it is still very harsh of them to release the statement whilst he was live on TV.

    He also did commentators duty at the weekend and then complained that he didnt have enough time to prepare for his tribunal in the following days.

    All in all hes not been what you would call very professional and, ultimately, its all been a bit of a waste of time as he has missed out on most of the big jobs going. He will probably end up at Wigan if Whelan can get over him being a bit of a dick to brighton.

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    He totally called it

    Whelan's a big enough dick that I don't think Poyet is likely to out dick him.

    Just read that Gus' son tweeted at 7:00pm "No more trips to the Amex".

    Watching the footage again, it looks like staged questions. I think Gus deserves an Oscar for that performance.

    Still it will all soon be forgotten.

    What the hell is going on with Blackpool? And how come they seem to be skint? Has Oyston been collecting all the BPL money for himself?

    The Oystons have taken all the money. It's just the way we roll.

    God, I hope Ince walks.
