Ben StillerGus Poyet


All right, I admit this isn’t a very good resemblance—but it is passable if you’ve had a few pints and are squinting (preferably through the bottom of one of those pint glasses). And, if it’s occurred to me while watching a game, it’s good enough for this blog. And it would certainly be good enough for a made-for-TV movie about the life of Sunderland’s Uruguayan manager. If anyone can do justice to Poyet’s relentless, comical insistence that the referee look at his watch, it’s the almost-always-entertaining comedian Stiller.
