Albion chairman salutes Oscar's "skill, patience and dignity"

The Argus: Albion chairman has been impressed by Oscar Garcia in the Spaniard's first season in charge Albion chairman has been impressed by Oscar Garcia in the Spaniard's first season in charge

Albion chairman Tony Bloom has praised the job done by head coach Oscar Garcia in his first season in English football.

The Spaniard has steered the injury-plagued Seagulls to within a point and a place of the play-offs ahead of tonight's penultimate match against Yeovil at the Amex.

Bloom said: "Whatever the outcome of the last two games and maybe the play-offs, Oscar and the players have done really well this season.

"Our terrible luck with injuries - particularly in the first half of the season - has been a tough hurdle to overcome.

"Being head coach of a Championship team as your first experience of English football is a tough ask, and I would like to congratulate Oscar on completing this season with skill, patience and dignity."

Hopefully this is not the dreaded vote of confidence from the chairman.

That should annoy a few on here that Bloom backs Oscar he is not going anywhere and most will be delighted to hear that but some wont off course, on another note heard that x Barcelona coach sadly lost his battle with cancer R.I.P.

Yes agree it has been a difficult baptism into English football with all the injuries etc. Do not forget Bloom said at the beginning of the season a Top10 finish would be a good target-- so no wonder he is pleased with OG, hopefully a good foundation for next season to go on and achieve better things.

To me thanking a manager for all his work during his tenure is similar to when managers leave a club.

Looks to me like OG is off at the end of the season and Tony's thanking him in advance to put a favorable spin on it.

Tony hasn't said anything all season and left it to Barber and only now he pipes up

Tony is a decent guy and will give Oscar time.

Oscar know the limitations of certain players and will no doubt weed out the 'lesser' players in the summer.

Let's hope we can keep him. :)

This is just as I expected and hoped Tony would do, make it clear that he backs the guy not matter what the outcome of our season is. Now I would like Tony to reward Oscar's efforts by supporting him, as far as the club can, in the transfer market for next year's squad.

This is an appropriate endorsement, and fitting for the job OG has done this season. Whatever the outcome of the next couple of matched, I hope OG remains to finish to job.

glad to be of help, and I really don't see anything that might be deemed as, 'smug,' with regards to my comment, I simply exressed my agreement with Bloom and my hopes for next year.

Okay.

I cant believe that the fans are not confident about tonight, to me its the easiest 3 points of the season, apart from leicester away lol.

Maybe the fans think Yeovil will put on a show for the cameras

That's fine Tony but why having given ourselves a great opportunity to hang on the coat tails of others did we manage to throw it all away when most were fit in the last 5 games?

This is all rather pleasant . A string of positivity towards TB & OG
And then we have our resident troll as a counterbalance.

Anyway. everything to play for going in to the last match.
Here's hoping Donny can do us a favour tomorrow
