Gus Poyet: Thought Brighton showed character and belief against Millwall

Poyet's men found themselves 2-0 behind after their former loanee Chris Wood had bagged a brace but the manager brought Kazenga LuaLua on six minutes before half-time and the sub scored a superb second-half goal before a David Lopez penalty two minutes from time earned the hosts a point.

"For the first time as a manager I made a substitution in the first half, and it was a proper fightback," said Poyet.

"There was desire, character and belief. It was all one-way and a great football comeback.

"We didn't give up, we went for it and, for a moment, I thought we were going to win it, but we are satisfied with a point.

"We've seen a massive change in Kazenga. He is totally different now and is training well and desperate to play."

Wood is now on loan with Millwall from West Brom and he impressed Poyet with his display.

"He is the kind of player we would like to bring in," said the Brighton boss.

"He's only 21 and I feel he will be a top, top player. When he was with us on loan he was a baby but now he is maturing. He's a man now.

"He's clinical and brave and we have played a part in helping him on his way."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
