First published in Sport by

Albion could be heading for a reunion with Oscar Garcia.

The former Seagulls head coach is wanted by Watford and Leeds.

Both have been in touch with the former Barcelona player, who recently cut short his second stint at Maccabi Tel Aviv.

However The Argus has been told Oscar is leaning towards Watford, who are currently second in the Championship, as he assesses his options.

Oscar and his family would be happy to move to the London area.

The Hornets have won four of their first five Championship games this term and former Albion loanee Keith Andrews netted in the 4-2 success over Huddersfield on Saturday.

Albion go to Vicarage Road on October 4.

Good luck to the guy - a talented coach who did a lot to bring on young players at the club. Shoddily treated by the club and forced to work with an ageing, inadequate squad and denied the funds to operate effectively in the transfer market.

The Championship is clearly a dangerous place for Managers. This is the third club to lose their manager so far and we're only 5 games in.
Still, I would welcome Oscar's return because he did a good job for us but more importantly would be interested in seeing what tactics he employed. UTA

Mayfield sweeper says...

Oscar will be fired up to beat us for how he was treated at the albion and his head is probably still sore from hitting it on the ceiling, could be a dangerous customer if backed by ambitious owners which he would at Watford. Hopefully the board won't make the same mistakes with Sami as they did with Oscar and Gus.

Are you on drugs or a Wum?
Shoddily treated? Talented? Where do you get that from?
Anyone who knows anything about the Albion will tell you that Garcia hardly ever took training and delegated most of the work he should have done. We got where we did last season because of the good players left by Gus. Nothing to do with Garcia's coaching.

So he's turned up 2 months later in England possibly with Watford a not particularly ambitious move. A journeyman manager who was probably pushed rather than jumped when he was here

It doesn't matter which club Garcia goes to as he will get a free pass rather than being held responsible, just as when he joined us he has inherited a squad. If he can keep his squad mid table come the next window he will have succeeded. If he needs a couple of players in January he will get them.

Clean Sheet says...

Confirmed on the Beeb that he has signed for Watford. I guess we will get a better picture about how good he is from now. I liked him at Brighton, seemed intelligent, thoughtful, and had the respect of the players, so was sorry to see him go. I am questioning his commitment, 4th club in 15 months, albeit twice at Tel Aviv.
