Oscar hails his side - but there is concern over Buckley

The Argus: Oscar Garcia salutes the Albion fans Oscar Garcia salutes the Albion fans

Albion have been handed a fresh injury blow.

But Oscar Garcia refused to let it take all the gloss off an impressive performance in the North West today.

Will Buckley left the 1-0 win at Blackpool – secured by an Inigo Calderon goal - with a hamstring injury.

Oscar admits he has no idea how he long he will be out of action.

The Albion boss admitted: “It’s a blow. Now we have to manage another injury.

“A hamstring injury is always a bad injury. I can’t tell you for how long he will be out.”

Albion will also assess Stephen Ward after he left the action following a blow to the head.

Oscar was delighted to see his side return to winning ways and highlighted the efforts of three players coming off the bench.

Adam Chicksen made his debut for the club as substitute for Ward at left-back and Kazenga LuaLua and David Lopez helped preserve the win.

Oscar said: “I’m very happy with the performance of all the players, especially the three subs.

“Chicksen made his debut with us at a difficult place and he played really well.

“And I’m happy with Kazenga and David to come off the bench and play like they are playing.”

Great result today, shame about Buckley though, but plus side is Ince was a powerhouse (again !), Chicksen assured and TK back in goal. Shows what a more pro-active approach can bring. Can we now have that from the board in the transfer window please. Creative midfielder and Craig Conway back, plus perhaps a class, pacey Centre back, just show us how ambitious you actually are this season.

Conway will be back. Also we really do need to tie down Ince to a LTC, get on it as a priority.

Shame about Buckley as it appeared to be he was back on track after a poor couple of games

Agreed AD.
Someone commented the other day that he was still training with us. I find that a bit odd if true but if it is, then that has to be a good sign. Regardless, he would be a welcome addition back in the team. He's been missed since his loan expired.

Agree with previous posts, if Will Buckley is going to be out for a while, we need to make sure Craig Conway returns to the Amex (in an Albion shirt).
His crosses would be tailor made for Leo.

Excellent result today. There's a degree of irony that on the day OG goes all attack minded a defender scores our goal. Than heavens for Caldi!

Conway will be back soon, I have no doubt. Things might just get lively once Ulloa's is on the end of a few Conway crosses.

Meanwhile, time to stone the Cherries...

Great result and the team formation we all want to see, Ince is the man, give him what he deserves, a 4/5 yr contract with a massive sell on clause thrown in for good measure. Shame for Buckley, others playing well always brings the best out of him, let's hope for a quick return.
Could be Solly's chance in the FA Cup to show us he's good enough to step into Buckleys position!
Hope Leo is ok and fit for bournmouth, this is our derby match for the season and the lads should be well up for it! Uta

More quotes....
Brighton boss Oscar Garcia was delighted with the victory.
He said: “I’m very happy with Inigo Calderon. He wasn’t playing for a long time but he’s always prepared and always focused.
“He was outstanding here and in all the training sessions. He deserved the
goal and I’m very happy for him. He plays with a lot of enthusiasm.
“I think most of our performances have been good and I am happy with the
performance of the players. We are always looking forward and hoping to play attractive football for the fans, which I have said from the day I came here. I’m very happy, we have great travelling support and for us it’s very
important to see a lot of Albion fans coming here to see this game. This victory is for them.”

All power to Oscar... Calm when things don't go our way, humble when they do. It's refreshing... We are fortunate to have him... let's not forget that.
And great to see him praising Calde, what a top pro.

I think that was also important about today is what sounds like an impressive debut from Adam Chicksen. Hopefully one for the future. Would like to see Conway sign permanently although I wonder if the shenanigans at Cardiff will have any bearing on this. When you see what is going on there it makes you realise just how lucky we are to have a genuine fan as a chairman.

Well with Will starting to rival Vicente's sickness record and David having a well below par season I can't see how another wide left player (Conway) is a priority. KLL, Orlandi, March and old Marmite himself have that well covered. Wide right seems more pressing at the moment. Or did we win the lottery?......

It's unfortunate for Ward but his concussion throws someone into the fire, Chicksen, then they show their true potential, Ince being the prime example and this could be Chicksens chance!
Hope Ward is ok as he has been solid since his arrival but we must remember he is on loan and Chicksen was bought in for this position, I think Chicksen will play against bournmouth to give Ward time to recover and if Chicksen does good he might keep the place for a while.

March plays on the right as well, would be nice to see him get a chance in Will's absence, get a young striker in and a couple of young centre backs and we are pretty much covered across the pitch with talent for the future.

Buckley is the Bambi of the footballing world,another Darren Anderton,he was known as as a sick note at Watford..We dont need him and have done alright without him,bring Conway back ASAP.
Great result today,with or without Buckley we will be in the play-offs at least,my guess is automatic promotion.
You cannot pander to 'sick-notes' they drag the team down,learn the lessons from Vicente,harsh I know but true.

As an Albion fan for many years born in Brighton but living in Lancashire for a long time it's been a great season for me so far, crowing to my Burnley and Blackburn friends. 5 games against Burnley, Blackburn, Bolton, Wigan and now Blackpool and 15 points ! I was there today. What a great team effort..Bridcutt was his usual self but what a great potential replacement we have in Rohan Ince, head and shoulders above his Blackpool namesake. He reads the game so well and in MIO is destined for great things

Fact is that OG has been scared and negative with a capital N until today and cost us a lot of points.

I have said this all along but I'll say it again. We are unbeaten when Ince and Bridcutt play together and usually win. They are not replacements for each other, they compliment each other. Yaya toure was originally a centre back but Roberto Mancini played him as an attacking midfielder and recognised hi physical build, talent and agilty to move forward like a Patrick viera. Rohan Ince was a centre back at Chelsea but can be used in the same way. People who think that he is just a defensive midfielder like bridcutt miss his true potential. If we keep both to the end of the season and playing every week we will go up. Trust me.to break this partnership for a thing between £2-5 million is short term thinking when the tv money for getting to the premiership is£70million alone.
We need bridcutt and Ince, not either, or.

He was a central midfielder at Barcelona by the way he just didnt get in ahead of Xavi Iniesta and Busquets? Bridcutt wants to play in the Prem and i think hell go unless Bloom does a U-turn and decides he wants to gamble and get there this season! Obviously id love to see us spend a few million but so did the Portsmouth fans when things were good!

Nobody is saying spend a few million we haven't got like Portsmouth but just hold on to what we've got and sell the journey and the dream to bridcutt.

Yaya toure was originally a centre back but Roberto Mancini played him as an attacking midfielder and recognised hi physical build, talent and agilty to move forward like a Patrick viera. Rohan Ince was a centre back at Chelsea but can be used in the same way. People who think that he is just a defensive midfielder like bridcutt miss his true potential. If we keep both to the end of the season and playing every week we will go up. Trust me.to break this partnership for a thing between £2-5 million is short term thinking when the tv money for getting to the premiership is£70million alone. We need bridcutt and Ince, not either, or.[/p][/quote]He was a central midfielder at Barcelona by the way he just didnt get in ahead of Xavi Iniesta and Busquets? Bridcutt wants to play in the Prem and i think hell go unless Bloom does a U-turn and decides he wants to gamble and get there this season! Obviously id love to see us spend a few million but so did the Portsmouth fans when things were good![/p][/quote]Nobody is saying spend a few million we haven't got like Portsmouth but just hold on to what we've got and sell the journey and the dream to bridcutt.

You really are deluded.

And now you want to take the credit!
Be off with you and take the other trolls with you
If you keep responding, he will keep posting... a direct response is what he craves. He gets positively excited by any show of interest, negative or otherwise

More effective to ignore Sussexscum40 and allow him to reflect of the pointlessness of his trolling hobby....

Insults don't hurt me. I'll carry on telling the truth and talking straight unlike the masses who were posting IGWT for the last 2 years but who have now done a U turn and branded him the devil.

My credibility is intact. Other posters can't say the same thing.

Fact is that OG has been scared and negative with a capital N until today and cost us a lot of points.
....see what I mean.
I get the impression he is physically as well as mentally excited by any attention he gets. We can help him (and save a lot of tedium) by avoiding a direct response. He has been doing this for years now and there is no sign of him being cured. Ignore him, discuss him, but for goodness' sake don't encourage him with a direct response - or we will have more and more of his drivel!

Totally agree. Oscar has and is, doing a great job, quietly and steadily doing his job, with many injury problems and probably within the context of a 'hangover' from last year. We are joint 6th and I am convinced, that, (as I have been posting on here since the start of the season) that we will be in the top 6 when it matters. This guy will prove to be one of our bestt and most insightful managerial signings in a long time and I am very happy with what he is doing.
Regarding Trolls, personally I don't mind them, when they are amusing as they add a bit of colour to the forum especially when some get so wound up about them, which of course, is exactly what they want! However, this particular one is very tedious and dull, which makes me think ( as in fairness, he claims) that, he is not one and just a 'fan' with his own perculier and misguided interpretation of all things Albion!! Can't wait for Weds and 3 points, which will hopefully get us to 6th! UTA!

I think that was also important about today is what sounds like an impressive debut from Adam Chicksen. Hopefully one for the future. Would like to see Conway sign permanently although I wonder if the shenanigans at Cardiff will have any bearing on this. When you see what is going on there it makes you realise just how lucky we are to have a genuine fan as a chairman.
There's a lot better than Conway on the market. Certainly take him but only on a free.
