LuaLua: We love Oscar's style

The Argus: Kazenga LuaLua likes Oscar Garcia's approach Kazenga LuaLua likes Oscar Garcia's approach

Kazenga LuaLua has revealed the Albion players love playing for Oscar Garcia - even though he does not say much.

The winger has saluted the quietly effective approach of the head coach as the Seagulls bid to mount another promotion push in the second half of the season.

They return to Championship action against in-form Birmingham at The Amex on Saturday better placed under Spaniard Oscar than they were under chatterbox Gus Poyet.

Oscar's side are seventh after 24 games with 36 points, narrowly outside the play-off places on goal difference.

That is two points more, three places higher and three points closer than they were at the same stage last season, when Poyet's team finished fourth before losing in the play-offs to Crystal Palace and the Uruguayan's sacking for gross misconduct.

Fit-again LuaLua, a late impact substitute in the FA Cup win against Reading, told The Argus: “I am always ready to play. It's always nice to come on to help the team.

“This season has been good for me, the manager has been good for me, everybody really.

“It would be nice if he (Oscar) could talk more! But he's a nice guy.

“He's different to Gus, a bit quieter, but he's a good manager. All the boys love playing for him.”

He may be a quiet guy but actions speak louder than words perhaps? The facts are there for all to see, we are in a better position than we were under Poyet, and this has been achieved with many more injuries than Poyet had to manage with. The current squad seems a happy place to be,the younger players have come in and done a great job and the comment from Kaz " We love playing for Oscar" is what it's all about.
Liam is on his way, and he goes with my blessing,a quality player whom I look forward to watching develop and perhaps move even further on in his career.

Terrific to hear that from a player, especially KLL.Never heard him praise G.P.even during our great run last season.Oscar is a very laid back mamager but knows his game . He's impressed me a lot especially bringing on our young players & giving them pitch time. I hope we have him in situ for a long time to come.

Sorry but you cannot make that call yet.
Oscar is playing with Gus' players. When Oscar has made some good signings (and I mean him not Burke) then you can compare.

Nonsense Claude, the best Managers get the best out of the players they have got, Harry Redknapp buys the best players his club cannot afford but Sean Dyche is showing he is a far better manager by sitting above QPR, even after losing Charlie Austin to them.
There is more to it than picking the team.

When people, 'want,' to work for you, you are a good manager. When people enjoy working for you they give of their best, and you are a good manager. When you select the right people to get a job done, you are a good manager. When you recognize a weakness and fix it, you are a good manager. When you recognize young talent and encourage and develop that talent, you are a good manager. When, as manager, you get your work done with a minimal amount of fuss, you are a good manager. History will decide whether you are thought of as a, great manager.
