Oscar rues Albion's first half flop

The Argus: Peter Brezovan is beaten by Hull's first goal Peter Brezovan is beaten by Hull's first goal

Oscar Garcia admitted a sub-standard first-half showing cost Albion dear in the FA Cup tonight.

But he felt his side did themselves justice in the second period of their 2-1 fifth-round defeat at Hull.

Leo Ulloa netted to respond to first-half strikes from Curtis Davies and Robert Koren.

Head coach Oscar said: "I didn't recognise my team in the first half.

"Against a Premier League side we have to play for 90 minutes, not only 45.

"in the second half we were the better team and maybe we deserved more but in the first half they played much better."

He admitted: "I think we were a little bit afraid (in the first half). We didn't keep the ball as we usually do.

"in the second half after the team talk the players reacted and they showed what they are capable of on the pitch."

Lets face it OG you and Jones don't care one bit as long as you both pick up your free money every week.Not a word from you after the club sold Bridcutt,Barnes,El-A
bd,and did nothing to get Conway back.Talk about no passion.Poyet would have had steam coming out his ears.OG and Jones are just 2 yes men.No real top manager would put up with that in a million years.I really don't believe OG has any part to play in players into the club anyway.

I wasn't at the game and couldn't watch it from where I was last night but wasn't surprised we fell short of what was required. Either you commit and go for it, or just turn up and take the cash windfall, catch the charter flight back and turn up for training again this morning and prepare for Millwall. I would love the club to get into the Premier League, for TB's sake, but honestly wouldn't want to watch us getting hammered every other game no matter how many millions were involved. I'm a supporter, not a fan. I pay to be entertained, and I understand the constraints under which we have to operate. As a contributor on a previous thread mentioned, there are clubs in this division who are spending millions to not qualify for the Premiership next season as well.

How on earth can OG say we were the better team in the second half, ! it was like a training match for Hull, they were not closed down, pressed or under any kind of pressure at any time, The Manager and NJ show no passion on the sidelines or probably in the dressing room, as poster above said Poyet would have had steam coming out of his ears, as I did watching the performance. So much for OG saying he loved attacking football.
Can someone please explain to us fans why the FA cup doesn't matter anymore ? and can someone please explain why we got rid of oe of the best playmakers the club ever had (Vicente, who wasn't injured half as much as GP would have us believe), an kept three bloody goalkeepers,two of which are crap. ??????? Brezovan has always been a liability and a accident waiting to happen, 6 foot 6 or whatever and can't come for crosses, he did the same at Stoke two years ago. Before anyone says we can get in the play offs now, don't bank on it paying like that, the players will need to try a site harder than they did last night, our season will be over in the next two weeks.

Your remarks are both absurd and libellous. The administrators of the site have been informed and I have made it my bounden duty to get you removed from the site permanently - whatever bizarre name you appear under.

'Dunk 2 blame' has no idea what is going on with OG and Jones. OG is always in the box giving advice to the players and at the end of each home game he walks around the ground clapping the supporters which is more than Poyet did. I am sorry to say that although Poyet done a lot for the Albion, and I thank him for it, from March last year he hardly ever got off his seat in the Dug-out and left all the shouting of advice to Charlie Oatway who to this day I do not know why he had to leave the club. Lets get behind OUR team and the people who run it and stop picking on individuals.
