Albion aiming to end Hillsborough hoodoo

Oscar Garcia has targeted an historic win for Albion

Oscar Garcia has targeted an historic win for Albion

First published in Sport by , Chief sports reporter

Oscar Garcia says Albion have an extra incentive to get their promotion challenge back on track - winning at Sheffield Wednesday for the first time.

The Seagulls have never triumphed at Hillsborough as they try to recover tomorrow night from Saturday's 2-0 home defeat by Ipswich.

Oscar said: "There is another motivation, to win for the first time there, although we have enough motivation to try to beat them."

Albion have lost seven and drawn six of their 13 visits to Hillsborough dating back to an FA Cup tie in 1913.

They were beaten 3-1 last season on Matt Upson's debut, which included a red card for Ashley Barnes.

The last point they picked up at Hillsborough was in 2005, when Colin Kazim-Richards salvaged a 1-1 draw with a last-gasp equaliser.

Wednesday have won their last three home games.

From some of the posts on here you'd think we were struggling in lower mid-table instead of pushing for promotion to the Premier League, despite the turmoil of last year, having a manager new to English football, most of the squad injured for large parts of the season and FFP regulations.

We have manager from Barcelona (yes, the Barcelona) who will be in demand at the end of the season whatever happens so lets get behind him and the team instead of going into meltdown every time we lose (yes, we will lose the odd football match).

The style, i agree, is at times a work in progress and I think we'll see big changes over the summer (we have the Nike & Bridcutt cash) whatever league we are in.

Lets keep the odd loss in perspective!

Don't be so dramatic ,I can only speak for myself obviously ,but my moan about the Ipswich game for instance ,was the way we lost it ,it was ours to lose and we accommodated . Of course we will lose games ,were not daft ,but to lose a game because you were outplayed or tactically out thought ,not because of bad tactics or squad rotation !.
Everyone is aware of Oscar`s Barca connection as well ,but are you aware that we don't have their players to rotate ,I think in general we as supporters keep "the odd loss" in perspective ,but that doesn`t mean evading the obvious **** up on Saturday either !. UTA

Like so many cant understand the negativity regarding Oscar, for me has had a great first season, (Jones I am not sure on), if its not this year it will be soon, lessons will be learned, style of play change for the best hopefully and I can see the premiership whether it be this season, next or in 3/4 years we will get there, I have said so many times, fans need to look at what they have got, we are in a fantastic position on and off the ground

Got the day off tomorrow; travelling to Sunny Sheffield in a hours time. This is the only game I want us to win but hope we don't as will be sat in the home side stand. Imagine what happens when Brighton scores and I cheer.
This is all about Northern family and my brothers being Leeds, Wednesday and Barnsley supporters.
I don't talk to my brothers much as you can imagine, not about football anyway.
Herrs hoping I get into a spot of bother for cheering; after 1 or 3 pints before the match I may not be able to help myself.
Lets end the loss and draw run at Hillsborough although need a team different to Saturday.

I agree with all Oscar fans ,I am one at the moment ,but when a Coach states that he will not change his tactics ,ie : will only play one up front ,plays one winger ,which is easily defended ,hence pointless ,then I`m not sure ,a good Manager/Coach imho should be fluid ,amenable to change ,given different conditions and opposition ,to be so stringent and predictable is surely self destructive ,.....unless the idea is to give the opposition our game plan before each game ,and as with Saturdays game ,perhaps ask which team the opposition manager would like us to put out !!!! ,because Ipswich`s weakest point was their right back ,so why didn`t we start with Kaz ???.
Not interested in negs ,but would love to hear an explanation for that decision .

Absolutely correct. We need to keep things in perspective despite Saturday's disappointment.
Anyway, 3 points nailed on tomorrow night. UTA

Currently watching Southend v Oxford and thinking how lucky we are to not be playing them. Personally I am not desperate for promotion to the Premier League this year but if it happens I am pretty sure the management will be able to cope with it. They seem a pretty switched on group to me that are intent on building a dynasty. Not sure that's the right word but in Sussex we have a strong County league. There are players out there that could be coming through our ranks.

This is the only game I want us to win but hope we don't as will be sat in the home side stand. Imagine what happens when Brighton scores and I cheer. This is all about Northern family and my brothers being Leeds, Wednesday and Barnsley supporters. I don't talk to my brothers much as you can imagine, not about football anyway. Herrs hoping I get into a spot of bother for cheering; after 1 or 3 pints before the match I may not be able to help myself. Lets end the loss and draw run at Hillsborough although need a team different to Saturday.[/p][/quote]We got no chance we even got beaten with Gus in charge and we where class last year.[/p][/quote]Yeah we had the same points as this season.

wouldn't agree we're 'pushing' for promotion ?
On another subject, wonder if there are plans to get a more experienced first team coach in next season ? Would love an article by Mr N on exactly what Nathan Jones brings to the table . Just a thought.
