The Seagulls endured a miserable Saturday afternoon at Hillsborough, losing striker Ashley Barnes to an early red card and conceding a third goal moments after they had dragged themselves back into the game through Andrea Orlandi.

But Poyet, whose side face more Yorkshire opposition in the shape of Hull next weekend, insisted: "We played better than people think.

"Everyone will look at the scoreline and then watch the goals on the highlights, but we were better than that.

"But there are key moments in a game and that moment was the sending-off and the goal that followed from the resulting free-kick. It was one of the worst goals we have conceded this season which is very disappointing."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
