Oscar: "We need to bounce back"

The Argus: Oscar Garcia wants Albion to respond to successive defeats for the first time since August Oscar Garcia wants Albion to respond to successive defeats for the first time since August

Albion boss Oscar Garcia has called on his team to recover from successive defeats against Mlddlesbrough at the Amex tomorrow.

The Seagulls face mid-table Boro following setbacks to their challenge for the play-offs at home to Ipswich last Saturday and at Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday.

Oscar said: "We need to bounce back against Middlesbrough, pick ourselves up and get back to winning ways.

"We like to play in front of our fans but all the games are important, home and away.

"I think we are playing well. We are creating a lot of chances. For example, in the last two games we had more than 30 attempts on goal and that means we are playing well, with an attacking mind. What we have to do is take the chances."

Boro are managed by Aitor Karanka, Oscar's 1996 Olympic Games Spanish team-mate.

"The first season is not easy for a foreign coach," Oscar said. "He came in the middle of the season but he is doing a good job. They don't concede many goals and they are a difficult team to beat but we will try to do it."

OG making a factually correct but ambiguous statement of 30 attempts on goal! against sheff wed we had 9 shots (2 on target) and Ipswich 22 shots (5 on target). Total return 0 goals. Lets hope we have Leo back who has clearly the best shots to goals ratio in the team. I feel remarkably confident we will win on Sat (given last 2 matches) and hope we can get more than 1 goal. UTA

Oscar you are the right man to lead us, of that I have no doubt, I am glad you are coming out making a few statements rather than leaving it to Corporal Jones, however I do hope you have realised that we need to grab the bull by the horns and create more, Ulloa, Buckley, Lua Lua and Lingard all need to play, Ince and either Stephens/Andrews holding centrally, we are in danger of fading away, lets stop being a wee bit negative and utilize Ulloa in the best possible way.

I think the point I'd take from what he says is that chances ARE being created, which is why I can never fathom comments like the one from Uckfield Seagull who says he hopes OG has realised we need to create more.
Without doubt we need to convert more of them, but its too easy to drop into cliché land and say we're obviously negative in our approach as a consequence.

Yes i agree, although shots off target are not a great measure since they could be from the half way line (unless you have Rooney)....Ipswich in particular was a very poor conversion rate, but then again QPR was an amazing one! I for one wasn't complaining that night. I just hope we can find more goals from midfield. I really do think Lingard could be a provider, but i hope he doesn't start too late to make a difference. Orlandi is also key IMO. A win against Borough followed by a win at Blackburn and lots would change their view on potential for this year.
