Albion boss could get favour from Spanish pal

The Argus: Oscar Garcia (right) and Aitor Karanka, side by side at the Amex during Middlesbrough's 2-0 win last month Oscar Garcia (right) and Aitor Karanka, side by side at the Amex during Middlesbrough's 2-0 win last month

Albion boss Oscar Garcia could get a helping hand from a former international team-mate tonight.

Middlesbrough boss Aitor Karanka insists his mid-table side will not be taking their foot off the pedal against the Seagulls' play-off rivals Reading at the Madejski Stadium.

The sixth-placed Seagulls are sweating on the result of Reading's game in hand, hoping Middlesbrough win or draw to keep the Royals below them.

Boro's own hopes of maintaining a late dash evaporated with Saturday's home defeat by Millwall but Karanka, a Spanish under 21's and 1996 Atlantic Olympics team-mate of Oscar's, said: "If someone is thinking we are going to Reading to play a friendly game they are wrong. The best way to forget Saturday’s game is to win at Reading.

"To make that happen I am going to work hard every day because we will be playing a team who are trying to get into the play-off positions.

"It is a very important game. Reading are playing for the play-off positions and the first thing we must do is respect the competition so we must do everything we can to win the game."

Former Albion loan striker Paul Dickov, manager of relegation-threatened Doncaster Rovers, hopes to have influential midfielder Richie Wellens and defenders Lucal Neill and James Husband back from injury for Reading's visit on Saturday.

I hope we make the play offs, it would be great if we do, however if we dont I am 100% excited by next season, with a fully fit squad and a couple of decent additions then promotion is there for the taking, get Buckley, Orlandi, CMS, Crofts properly fit then I see no reason why we cant challenge, Oscar will have a seasons experience under his belt, a fantastic stadium, amazing support, training facilities which will be some of the best in the country, youth academy to be proud of, the future is bright

Oscar must think he's a spin doctor - sorry any neutral who didn't know which side was which wouldn't know which was fighting relegation. My first game in three months after recovering from an operation and I could not believe how poor the team was. There are players at this club taking money under false pretences only CMS and Ward earned their money today. Clear out at the end of the season is MUST!
CMS earned his money today? Really? Yes, he ran about like a puppy chasing a sparrow, tried an ambitious overhead kick, had the ball bounce off the back of his head and still has the first touch of a blind juggler. I saw nothing from him to separate him from the rest of the team.

He does give us energy and effort for 100% of the time he is on the pitch, that is undeniable but that alone isn't enough.

I was sitting in the north stand and every time CMS got the ball there was a buzz in the crowd and people stood up. He was the only forward who moved with intent into the Blackpool penalty area. I could see why he was on the pitch - which was more than I could say for Ulloa, Lingard or Lua-lua. Lua-lua is a total waste of space - his trickery and speed are totally wasted by the fact that he cannot cross, take corners or free kicks and find his man and make them count. His refusal to stay on his feet tested my patience and the ref's. The ref was having none of this little conman - and frankly neither am I. He needs to be shown the door at the end of the season.

A good positive post Uckfield Seagull after a disappointing performance and result yesterday. One thing that has disappointed me particularly this season has been our home form where we have only won 9 out of 22 matches to date and scored a fairly meagre 29 goals. Hopefully Oscar will address that next season since another 3 home wins would have seen us pretty well established in the play-offs right now. Any help we can get from Middlesbrough would be welcome this evening.

Lots of fans expecting us to walk the Championship next season with a few additions but looking at the squad,contracts,loan
s a total rebuild is necessary.
As a fan I hope we make the play offs and further but realistically I feel it will be the Championship next season regardless.
The players under question:
TK,MU,SW,DR,DL,K Andrews,AO,BS,IC, CA,PB,KLL,JL
Add to this that it is probable LU and WB will probably leave,that leaves us down to the bare bones and if contracts haven’t been lined up then it is going to be a very unsettling summer ad is promotion that likely next season.

Anyone ever heard the term 'mindfulness'? For those that have not, a basic premise is the idea that instead of speculating on the distant future or dwelling too much on the past, people should focus their minds on the here and now...

I am enjoying supporting Albion and on Friday (mere 3 days away) I have the pleasure of watching Albion with a mate who has never been to the Amex.

Win, lose or draw - we will enjoy the experience - as I do every time I go to see the Albion (and as a season ticket holder I watch a lot of matches)

Let's hope Middlesborough frustrate Reading as much as Blackpool did the Albion yesterday.
I think many of us knew that the last game away at Forest would be a 'crunch game' from right back in September.
Albion will always make things difficult for themselves, history will tell us how many times over the years we have been in last match cliffhangers.
Being a Brighton supporter has often meant that events and results take us right down to the line.
Tension,Frustration, High Blood Pressure and Stress.........its what being an Albion supporter has been about. But it's what we do.

Maybe you could try to stop being insulting, just for a few minutes, and perhaps think about it a bit more yourself?

If Solly March really wanted to leave the club (evidence = zero) then he's just made it far harder for himself. Where he could just have walked away with a nice signing on fee he now has to wait until the club accept an as yet non-existent offer.

Not the actions of a young man desperate to leave the club that gave him his first opportunity in the professional game.

I can't help feeling that the Albion's biggest mistake ws letting Craig Conway go. We would not need to play the unreliable KLL if CC had been signed. I do not understand why Blackburn were happy to invest in him while the Albion dithered.

I'm sure it's been mentioned on here many times already but he wanted to live further north - it's as simple as that. (Not to mention Blackburn are on parachute payments so could simply have offered more than we could afford.)

Grow up and try and think you silly little man.Buckley also signed a 4 year deal only last season but it didn't stop him or his agent wanting the move to Palace at the last min only for the Albion to block it once they knew the Conway deal was off.
Maybe you could try to stop being insulting, just for a few minutes, and perhaps think about it a bit more yourself?

If Solly March really wanted to leave the club (evidence = zero) then he's just made it far harder for himself. Where he could just have walked away with a nice signing on fee he now has to wait until the club accept an as yet non-existent offer.

Not the actions of a young man desperate to leave the club that gave him his first opportunity in the professional game.
If top clubs really want a young player they will pay believe me.Just ask Southampton.Just like Buckley its Brighton that push to get the contract signed its no big odds to the player or his agent.
Other than the fact that Brighton can turn down a transfer, and even if they eventually agree to sell, the player gets a smaller signing on fee if a transfer is paid as there is less money in the pot.

To say it's of no consequence to the player is strange. No-one was forcing March to sign - if he wanted out he just wouldn't have put pen to paper.

Getting back on topic, how do you think the Boro game will go this evening? Will they go for the win, or hope to escape with a point? We can't rely on others helping us but if that's what it takes, then I'm happy to stumble into the play-offs.

CMS earned his money today? Really? Yes, he ran about like a puppy chasing a sparrow, tried an ambitious overhead kick, had the ball bounce off the back of his head and still has the first touch of a blind juggler. I saw nothing from him to separate him from the rest of the team.

He does give us energy and effort for 100% of the time he is on the pitch, that is undeniable but that alone isn't enough.

I was sitting in the north stand and every time CMS got the ball there was a buzz in the crowd and people stood up. He was the only forward who moved with intent into the Blackpool penalty area. I could see why he was on the pitch - which was more than I could say for Ulloa, Lingard or Lua-lua. Lua-lua is a total waste of space - his trickery and speed are totally wasted by the fact that he cannot cross, take corners or free kicks and find his man and make them count. His refusal to stay on his feet tested my patience and the ref's. The ref was having none of this little conman - and frankly neither am I. He needs to be shown the door at the end of the season.
I can't help feeling that the Albion's biggest mistake ws letting Craig Conway go. We would not need to play the unreliable KLL if CC had been signed. I do not understand why Blackburn were happy to invest in him while the Albion dithered.
Outstanding post.But the club is happy to waste fans money on Hoskins,Dunk,Agustie
n,KLL,and Orlandi that never plays.

Lets face it the players aren't up for the challenge,Lua Lua is a good player BUT will insist on playing for fairy tale free kicks when if he used his brain he could knock the ball pass the player and use his speed and hopefully put a good cross in,defenders aren't going to step out the way and let him pass ,so throwing himself into them and sitting on the floor appealing for a foul is a childless act and if I was a manager I would buy him a bike,LU is fed up and not interested,Linguard has had a moment of brilliance but those moments aren't often enough,hes too lightweight at the moment and not as fast as I thought he was judging by the Blackpool game.I don't think we have the players in midfield to be competitive we need a strong hard tacking aggressive midfielder alongside a creative player who can dictate the game ,we go backwards sidewards even when we could go forward,dont shoot when we can,cant produce a good ball from a free kick or corner,Oh im so glad I haven't renewed my season ticket

That's all entirely irrelevant. Answer me this one question: WHY would Solly March sign a four year contract if he wants to stay, knowing full well that it will decrease any money he would get from his new club? Barnes proves this - he wanted to move so he just didn't sign the new contract. He knew that if he did the odds on his leaving would have become too long.

Also, if you can tell me WHY March wants to leave all of a sudden, that would be good too.

There is no-one much better than OG to bring the best out of a young footballer. He's done it at Barca and he can do it here. Indeed it is his ability in this area that was one of the reasons the club signed Oscar in the first place.

Barnes was not on half the money of CMS or Ulloa.Plus Burnley had made it very clear they wanted the lad with 2 other offers.There was also 3 other clubs sniffing around.Bolton & Leeds also really wanted Barnes.Just like with Murray the Palace staff were sniffing around and waiting to make their move.

It's a shame you don't rate OG even half as highly as Barcelona do, though. There are a million 'yes men' around in the game who would have been a far cheaper option than signing OG, so why didn't the club sign one of them instead?

With so many players out of contract shortly, work needs to have started in earnest to ensure we have a full and strong squad ready to go pre-season. There is no evidence to indicate that so far and thus I find it very hard to share your optimism.

Ex Pat Arnie,
Barnes was only offered a one year extension contract and no further offers materialised and so would not sign and with a young family wanted longer,Burnley offered him three year deal with prospect of playing in Premiership and so you cannot blame him. Burnley wanted him whilst BHAFC were not too bothered.

Yes, yes, I know all that. My point is that Freeloaders claims signing a contract is no bar to a future move. If that was the case then Barnes would have signed the extension and still moved to Burnley.

(a) What has a contract got to do with NJ? Are people still conflating post-match interviews and influence within the club???
(b) March has shown glimpses or genuine class and is still young. It makes sense to get him on a contract so the club can nurture him.

I always leave it a while before I post after a loss as I get too passionate unlike the guy on here who lets rip and abuses the fans and the club. If I knew his address then I would write to his mummy and warn her of the effects of too many Easter eggs and to ration them next year.
Anyway thought the game was poor and hoped we would get back in it but unfortunately not.
I was predicting 2 wins an 2 draws but Blackpool was a win for me and a draw at Forest; hope I am wrong. All down to the last game but I think Reading are looking good now unless they lose tonight. Burnley will not risk anything now they are up.

And yet again you miss the point and fail to answer the question.

I know that a club can still buy Solly March if they really want him, but what was the benefit to MARCH himself by signing, if he really wants to leave? At the very best he has delayed a move you think he craves and has almost certainly cost himself money, despite the increased wage he is currently on.
The benefit now is not to the player its to the club you silly man.What you are not getting is you don't know what is in the contract? Are you really this stupid i need to spell it out for you? Need i ask.

But that in no way explains why Barnes didn't sign a new contract. If it is no bar to moving then why not just sign it anyway, in the same way March has?

It's a shame you don't rate OG even half as highly as Barcelona do, though. There are a million 'yes men' around in the game who would have been a far cheaper option than signing OG, so why didn't the club sign one of them instead?
Arnie, I really don't know why you bother talking to this ignorant and pathetic "little man". He's nothing but a wind up merchant and a troll.

Free Money, you are a tw@t of the highest order.
I'm still trying to convince him to become a proper contributor on this website. I may be flogging a dead horse but it might still work.
What so i can become a part of your little small minded group lol? No thank-you Ex-pat.Like another fan pointed out to you last night we still have free speech in this country,and its the fans that really pay to watch the club that really have their right to say how they feel.Like Brighton Bill points out a fan of 52 years.Its dire pure rubbish at times.You don't pay to watch the club Ex-pat you are always on this site.
You don't have to agree with me to be able to hold intelligent conversation, Freeloaders. I quite often disagree with Neville (I think - apols if wrong name) but it's done like gentlemen. I'm quite happy to have a proper discussion with you about your opinions, but that doesn't mean that you have to abuse everyone.

Not everyone who holds a different opinion to you is a "small minded child," in the same way that not everyone who agrees with you is a "real fan with his own brain".

I am on this site because I love the Albion and love talking about my club. I live miles away from other Albion fans and if it wasn't for this site I would only be able to chat whilst actually at the Amex.

I presume you are here for the same reason? Why not just discuss and disagree without resorting to childish insults? Manners cost nothing.

Yes, the club benefit from the player signing the contract, but WHAT IS THE PLAYER GETTING? No-one can force his signature (ref Barnes) so please answer - why did March sign if he wants to go? It has cost him time and money if he genuinely wants to go.

I can only assume you're not answering because you have no answer.

Because Arnie, he has no life. He sits in his bedsit in Kemptown just waiting for people to insult. He pretends to know the club inside out. He tries to be as insulting as possible purely for the self congratulatory pleasure it gives him. He thinks I don't go to games "for no good reason" although personally I think a round trip of 19,500 miles is a fair reason (although I have had the pleasure of two games at the Amex this season). If he thinks he can goad me into trading insults he's even sadder than I originally thought. I won't waste my time!!

But that in no way explains why Barnes didn't sign a new contract. If it is no bar to moving then why not just sign it anyway, in the same way March has?

It's a shame you don't rate OG even half as highly as Barcelona do, though. There are a million 'yes men' around in the game who would have been a far cheaper option than signing OG, so why didn't the club sign one of them instead?
Arnie, I really don't know why you bother talking to this ignorant and pathetic "little man". He's nothing but a wind up merchant and a troll.

Free Money, you are a tw@t of the highest order.
I'm still trying to convince him to become a proper contributor on this website. I may be flogging a dead horse but it might still work.
What so i can become a part of your little small minded group lol? No thank-you Ex-pat.Like another fan pointed out to you last night we still have free speech in this country,and its the fans that really pay to watch the club that really have their right to say how they feel.Like Brighton Bill points out a fan of 52 years.Its dire pure rubbish at times.You don't pay to watch the club Ex-pat you are always on this site.
You don't have to agree with me to be able to hold intelligent conversation, Freeloaders. I quite often disagree with Neville (I think - apols if wrong name) but it's done like gentlemen. I'm quite happy to have a proper discussion with you about your opinions, but that doesn't mean that you have to abuse everyone.

Not everyone who holds a different opinion to you is a "small minded child," in the same way that not everyone who agrees with you is a "real fan with his own brain".

I am on this site because I love the Albion and love talking about my club. I live miles away from other Albion fans and if it wasn't for this site I would only be able to chat whilst actually at the Amex.

I presume you are here for the same reason? Why not just discuss and disagree without resorting to childish insults? Manners cost nothing.
Because Arnie, he has no life. He sits in his bedsit in Kemptown just waiting for people to insult. He pretends to know the club inside out. He tries to be as insulting as possible purely for the self congratulatory pleasure it gives him. He thinks I don't go to games "for no good reason" although personally I think a round trip of 19,500 miles is a fair reason (although I have had the pleasure of two games at the Amex this season). If he thinks he can goad me into trading insults he's even sadder than I originally thought. I won't waste my time!!

UTA!!
Why post back then you very sad man lol haha.How stupid does that make you look ha lol.Well we only have your word your 19,500 miles away? You admit you have seen just 2 games.In other words you know nothing to the true fans that go every single game then.What is clear my posts really do upset you sad man lol.Me i don't care one bit what you think.

OMG Arnie - I'm impressed by your tenacity to convert the nonconvertible, to reason with the unreasonable etc. I really think the best policy is to ignore and/or shun; I don't even waste my time reading the trollesque diatribe.

1) I wasn't talking to you, I was talking to Arnie.
2) I'm not 19,500 miles away. The world isn't that big! I'm 9,750 miles away. "Round trip" means both ways!
3) I guess you'll have to take my word for it as it's doubtful they'd give you a visa to come here and check.
4) Yes, only 2 games. What a substandard fan of 40 years I must be. I really should get a season ticket!
5) It may not compute in your small brain, but there are Albion fans all around the world. Being outside the city of B&H doesn't stop you from loving your club.

The squad will almost certainly see massive changes whether we go up or not, but I think OG will be here for the long haul.

With so many players out of contract shortly, work needs to have started in earnest to ensure we have a full and strong squad ready to go pre-season. There is no evidence to indicate that so far and thus I find it very hard to share your optimism.
Think Uckfield Seagull is living some dream...but not reality . I agree with you Namgo49... If we don't go up( which i think is reality), the side which kicks off in August will be very different to the team that finishes at Forest. And not sure Oscar will be here either !

A good positive post Uckfield Seagull after a disappointing performance and result yesterday. One thing that has disappointed me particularly this season has been our home form where we have only won 9 out of 22 matches to date and scored a fairly meagre 29 goals. Hopefully Oscar will address that next season since another 3 home wins would have seen us pretty well established in the play-offs right now. Any help we can get from Middlesbrough would be welcome this evening.
May be positive...but delusional . Do you not realise that many of this team won't be here next season ? And maybe Oscar has to looked at. Im not sure he will be here either.The reasons you give here about the disappointing performances etc, are directly down to poor management . Why do you hope he will be here next season? I haven't been so bored watching us , since the Russel Slade days at The Withdean ! We have had maybe 6 good games this season. Thats all. Yesterdays bad performance was one of so many ..

If oscars little friend does the job our team cannot do and get us in the playoffs we should promise to go on holiday to Middlesbrough out of respect. The industrial smog will be a small price to pay if we make it, breathing apparatus is provided free at hotel rooms up there and occasionally it clears enough to let a bit of sunlight through. Tonight we are all karankas army.

Well thats all fine..but what an excuse just because being an Albion supporter is meant to make thing difficult etc etc. rubbish. Trouble with us lot is we can't be honest and say....were not good enough . WE never have, and made excuses that being an Albion fan allows us to go through what we do . Its us fans that give these ridiculous expectations and now almost expect promotion because we have a great stadium and 28,000 most weeks. Sorry...doesnt work that way in the real world. We arnt good enough this season,(lets be honest..its been indifferent for most of it) and next year ,with a decimated squad ,new players, and hopefully a new manager ,it will be a season of continuing growth for the club , but without this ridiculous expectation that has come with the stadium .

It's a shame you don't rate OG even half as highly as Barcelona do, though. There are a million 'yes men' around in the game who would have been a far cheaper option than signing OG, so why didn't the club sign one of them instead?

I'm not getting involved in any of the other rubbish, but in relation to the comments about signing a new contract, it absolutely IS a bar to moving!
Barnes was only worth a reduced fee because his contract was expiring and his value was declining as each week of the season passed. Burnley will have said, 'We'll give you £750k now or he's a free in the summer because he isn't signing a new deal.'
From Barnes's position, signing a new deal just to suit the club would have priced him out of a move which offered him a bigger slice of the transaction because the fee was smaller. It's all interlinked, so signing - or not signing - a new contract is extremely significant in the dynamics of a negotiation.
That's why he left. He had nothing to gain by signing a new deal here and we'd have ended up with nothing.

In my opinion. I think the following will still be with the Albion next season
Ankergren
Bruno
Greer
Dunk
Stephens
Crofts
Orlandi
CMS
Calderon
Chicken
Ward
JFC
March
Ince
Maksimenko
Not a great squad left I am afraid
Pretty much how I see it, not sure on Orlandi myself and I notice you don't mention Agustien! but then again he's not been worth mentioning all season!
Re Ward, just seen the Wolves boss on sky sports hinting he wants all the ex prem players off the books, Ward still has a year to run at prem wages with them, can we afford to buy him out or will it be another Bridge scenario where one of the parachute payment clubs grab him. Will be interesting to see where the clubs ambition is in the summer and how much we spend!

It's a shame you don't rate OG even half as highly as Barcelona do, though. There are a million 'yes men' around in the game who would have been a far cheaper option than signing OG, so why didn't the club sign one of them instead?
Arnie, I really don't know why you bother talking to this ignorant and pathetic "little man". He's nothing but a wind up merchant and a troll.

Free Money, you are a tw@t of the highest order.
There needs to be a filter on here to cut out the posts from these Bull-spouting trolls or troll with multiple personalities, lets face it they're not Albion fans and probably don't go to any games cos they're too skint and busy avoiding their mum telling them to get a job and stop leaving stinky tissues in used tea cups in a home somewhere near South Norwood...
Fair enough, but at least these posters have got a point of view/opinion

When was the last time you had anything to say?
I'm not getting involved in any of the other rubbish, but in relation to the comments about signing a new contract, it absolutely IS a bar to moving!
Barnes was only worth a reduced fee because his contract was expiring and his value was declining as each week of the season passed. Burnley will have said, 'We'll give you £750k now or he's a free in the summer because he isn't signing a new deal.'
From Barnes's position, signing a new deal just to suit the club would have priced him out of a move which offered him a bigger slice of the transaction because the fee was smaller. It's all interlinked, so signing - or not signing - a new contract is extremely significant in the dynamics of a negotiation.
That's why he left. He had nothing to gain by signing a new deal here and we'd have ended up with nothing.
If you class nothing as a place in the playoffs with a chance of getting into the premier league then of course you are correct.

What gets to me is that you resign yourself to missing out on the playoffs and then bingo, a couple of great and unexpected results plus other results going our way and suddenly the playoffs are on again; the spirit rises...until we start playing the same old boring stuff again and it's depression time once more! Will this emotional roller-coaster continue? Well, I just can't see us getting there now...but you never know!

I can't help feeling that we could have been there already with a more positive approach. We have had players with plenty of ability to get us at least into the play-offs, but they have either been left out or played in the wrong positions. The tactics employed have been questionable for most of the time and it's all hugely frustrating... but, we could still make it despite of all this!

What pure dream world stuff.TK has already pointed out he has his agent talking with prem-league clubs along with Ulloa & Buckley.As for Orlandi it never plays thats why Swansea got shot.His been out with a dead leg for god knows how many weeks now lol haha.As for Croft he will never be the same player again after that injury im sorry to say.Now as for CMS his never scored goals in the championship,not the amount to get a club to the pre-league anyway.On top of this Ince & Solly already have their agents working hard to get them out the club.Like i said pure dream world stuff.Just 2 games to go and still no sign of Hoskins or Agustien i bet you really do believe those guys are fit don't you lol haha.Fit to get another free year of money thats for sure.
Free Money is nearer on the money that a lot of you . Apart from the Solly March and Ince bit...hes right . I don't think many people here realise that Friday will be the last time we see many of these players in Brighton shirts. You can add Oscar to the list as well .
Yes Wenners I and I am sure many other posters are aware that many of our current squad are about to go out of contract, end of loans etc. Neville produced a fairly comprehensive list earlier on this thread. Incidentally does GG go out of contract or did he sign a 2 year extension last summer ?
Clearly a major rebuild in the slumber regard,essay of which league we will be in.
Since it looks increasingly likely that we will be in the Championship I hope Oscar has taken on board the lessons he should have learnt from this season and can in particular improve our Home form.
In terms of players being resigned/signed permanently I would like to see MU, SW and TK especially being retained although it looks as if TK might leave unfortunately. Ulloa is the key ingredient for a promotion push next season players need to be recruited in midfield and attack who can help him score the goals that have been lacking - we can't rely on just one consistent goalscorer.
Looking forward to Friday evening although sadly our destiny isn't just in our hands anymore.

Win, lose or draw - we will enjoy the experience - as I do every time I go to see the Albion (and as a season ticket holder I watch a lot of matches)
Fantastic post. We would get on well.
