Oscar insist he always set out to play attacking football at Albion

Oscar Garcia says he played attacking football at Albion but injuries to strikers hindered him

Oscar Garcia says he played attacking football at Albion but injuries to strikers hindered him

First published in Sport by

Oscar Garcia has told Watford fans he plans to play attacking football – just like he insists he did with Albion.

The former Seagulls boss has spoken for the first time since taking over at Vicarage Road.

And he has hit back at suggestions he encouraged a conservative playing style at the Amex.

Oscar said a shortage of fit strikers hindered him last term.

He said: “It is good for me to work with strikers because last season we struggled in this position because we had a lot of injuries and it was difficult for us.

“That is the reason we tried to keep the ball more because we knew it was difficult for us to score goals, because we had a lot of chances in all the games but to score was so hard for us.

“But now I think, at this club, with the strikers we will have, I want to think about improving other things.”

Oscar lost Leo Ulloa for much of the first half of last season while Craig Mackail-Smith and Will Hoskins were also long-term absentees.

Oscar added: “I think we played attacking football last season but, obviously, when you don’t have a striker to put the ball in the net, you can play a lot of attacking football but if you don’t score it looks like you don’t play like this.

“I came from a philosophy to always play attacking football.”

Oscar will be joined by coach Ruben Martinez, who was also with him at Albion and Maccabi Tel Aviv.

They face the Seagulls on October 4.

Oscar said: “I have a lot of friends there (at Albion) and we had a full crowd at every game.

“We played good football and achieved a place in the play-offs.

“It’s not easy to get into the play-offs two seasons in a row but we did that. I am very proud of the job we did there.

“What we want to do is to win the game. After that we will shake hands but that will happen only after the game.”

Albion have cut ticket prices by £5 for Bronze and Young Seagulls Plus members for home games against Middlesbrough and Wigan in the coming weeks.

Young Seagulls accompanied by an adult can buy tickets for the Boro game for £1.

Well, if what we got last season was attacking football, maybe I'd better get a dictionary because clearly Oscar and I have a differing opinion of what that term means. And really....do I care what he's preaching at Watford? No, I don't!

I find your comment a bit out off line, it might not off been the best football to watch all the time, but give the guy a break he got us to the playoffs which was a great achievement in his first season, how many players where injured last season.
Wouldn't off stopped you going to wembley had we got there to watch Oscars attacking football, short memories some people the bloke did good for us in my opinion

There's a lot of revisionary spin around Oscars reign at the Albion at the moment. The simple fact is that he wasn't backed player wise - unlike Hypiaa has been this season after significant fan pressure. Some say Oscar felt let down. Simple fact was that he had to deal with the cards he'd been dealt with player wise, so couldn't really do much else.

Agree Jeff, Oscar did a great job for us and he was hampered by a lack of firepower which led to a possession game. Be interesting to see how he does with Deeney and Vydra, two quality strikers.

That may be partly true but look at us now with Greer and dunk playing the ball forward at every opportunity rather than constantly playing it across defence.
Last season ulloa was visibly getting frustrated that every time he won the ball the was nobody running on past him meaning he had to play the ball backwards.

I thought the football generally under Garcia was sterile and boring to watch. I don't believe that it can all be blamed on a lack of fitness up front. Slow build up and continual square passing was painful to watch at times.

I also agree with Jeff. Oscar has gone, so stories that keep going over his failings are of no great interest to me. I'd rather be reading about the current set up!

It seems there's a fixation with OG and GP - two managers who fell out with the club in their different ways.
Given there's been much debate about relationships between paper and club, could it be the fixation is because the writers are sympathisers to their wider views?
Whatever the answer, I, like many others, am bored with the focus..

Good to see that Oscar is still as deluded as ever & still harping on about all of those imaginary chances we kept creating & missing.
Still good luck to him & hopefully Watford will get the benefit of his "attacking" football.

Of course it wouldn't have stopped a Brighton fan going to Wembley, because we all want the club to do well. But that's not the point, is it?

I don't think I'm the only one who would say that under Oscar we played sideways, backwards, anywhere but forwards football, for large parts of the time, and that we were very lucky to get into the play offs where we ended up getting truly exposed by a much better side. If truth be told, maybe deep down we would all have liked Brighton to be playing the kind of football Derby played against us. Fast, attacking counter attacking football, and the signs are looking better already under SH. That's my view anyway. Cheers.

Love the fact that so many people don't want to hear about Oscar but still take the time to not only click on the article but then post a comment. Obvious what article was about if you're interested click on it if you aren't don't. I'm off to Pizza Hut now where I shall probably have a good moan about the complete lack of burgers.

Me thinks they are trying too hard to big Brighton fans because they don't go to the games.

Why do you type 'off' instead of 'of' or more oddly, 'have'? Takes the attention away from the content of your post.
Unfortunately, you will not educate him, S.J.
I am new here but I have noticed that he is one of the most opinionated and really one of the dimmest people on the site as no matter how many times people correct his spelling he still persists in doing it incorrectly.Then he has the nerve to criticise others who have a different opinion to him or dare to criticise the Albion in any way.
As you infer, why should anyone take any notice of his opinion when he clearly comes across as someone with no attention to detail and a bit backward?
I wonder if he tells people to' S*d of' when he means 'off'?

I believe that this is a football forum, not a written English test and critique or am I missing something?! You are new to the site and as such you would be better welcomed on here by making a contribution to the footballing discussion, rather than an attack on the grammar and views offered by a "regular" on here. The reality is that JL is a genuine fan who has his own views on everything Albion. These may be somewhat partisan in some instances, but they are relevant and credible to the articles written.

For his views to be credible he must have credibility. That is diminished by his lack of attention to detail and his 'attacks' on other people that don't share the same view.

I wonder if he tells people to' S*d of' when he means 'off'?

You are new to the site and as such you would be better welcomed on here by making a contribution to the footballing discussion, rather than an attack on the grammar and views offered by a "regular" on here. The reality is that JL is a genuine fan who has his own views on everything Albion. These may be somewhat partisan in some instances, but they are relevant and credible to the articles written.
I think you miss the point.
For his views to be credible he must have credibility. That is diminished by his lack of attention to detail and his 'attacks' on other people that don't share the same view.
I think you are missing the point actually, I disagreed with the first poster so what does not make either of us right, that's his opinion and my post is my opinion, that's what this site is about debates and individual opinions, if you don't like my posts then don't read them, when did I attack the post I did not agree with if he tells me I offended him then I would apologies to the lad, I think your posts towards me are more attack minded than mine was to him,

Mark5, thanks for your post, I am true fan, i might have a different opinion to some but that's what this site is all about, be boring if we always agreed.

I think it's important to consider what attacking football means in this context. From what I've seen of Spanish football (which I admit is limited) there seems to be more focus on working out your opposition rather than trying to score on the counter. That's what Barcelona do whenever I see them play. The reason they have been so successful over the years is that they are miles ahead of their opposition in terms of quality. If we'd had players anywhere near the quality of Barcelona's players (or Villarreal for that matter) we'd have scored tons of goals and almost everyone would have been raving about Oscar's attacking philosophy. And don't forget, when we got to the back end of the season (Barnsley aside) we started to score quite freely (3 away against Blackburn and Charlton and 2 against Yeovil and Bolton). Oscar did the best he could with the players that he had to play the Barcelona way and he got us to the playoffs. I am thankful for that.

As for those who moan every time the Argus posts about Oscar or less so Gus, you must realise that they have probably mentioned the Albion during the interview and is therefore relevant and worth writing about. If you don't want to read it, DONT. As Naylor has said before some of us might actually be interested in what Oscar has to say and what our opposition (Watford) might play like.

There's a lot of revisionary spin around Oscars reign at the Albion at the moment.

If you watch the interview with Tony Bloom after Oscar left, you'll hear that he was presented with a list of players, including Conway, and turned them all down.
Oscar gave the Albion a list of players that he wanted, none of which were available or too expensive.

Given the injury list of last season I think Oscar, and the players, did very well. This season, as with last season, Oscar is going to have to work with a squad that he had no part in putting together, but he has shown that he can handle that fact, I see that as a plus for his abilities.
Some have zero interest in what Oscar will or will not do this season with Watford, for me I think it will be interesting to see which club has the better season, us or them.

We certainly had a decent amount of possession like Barcelona. We may not have scored as many goals but as I said Oscar didn't have the quality of players available to him in order to score more goals. I am sure Barcelona have been called boring before and they've been very successful.

Personally I think this report is of value because it gives some insight into what was going on behind the scenes and in OGs head. That is something worth knowing and reading about once, for me anyway.

For those that are bored of reading it I suggest that you just don't - read it that is. Then you won't be bored and feel the need to make comment about it will you? Having said that if the article wasn't about his time at Albion I wouldn't read it either and I too would be bored if I did so.

What I hope will be very interesting and exciting is to see how SHs style stacks up against OGs style - that will be worth it I reckon.

I'm with you on this one Jeff. I find your entries generally interesting and I enjoy reading your opinions, whether I agree with them or not. I get more bugged by people who write with a total absense of commas, full stops and other punctuation, but generally I will read all comments because I appreciate peoples' opinions. I don't think anyone has a right to be overly critical of another person's spelling or grammer... unless of course that person is the professional journalist who writes the story!! 😉

We had the quality of players in the squad to play attractive football and get into the top six last season. The problem was injuries to key players throughout the season and one or two (Bridcutt and Buckley) with their heads in the PL rather than a focus on BHA. So we limped into the play offs and OG should get credit for that. I didn't find it boring, but it wasn't as exciting as the previous season.

Firstly, when have I ever said you have to agree with me?

Second, anyone who reads this thread back will see you said I was "crapping on" and Jeff was writing "crap slimeball posts". And then you say that I started insulting you??? Actually, all I did was to defend Jeff's right to post his opinions - I even said I didn't necessarily agree with them! Did I accuse YOU of being a troll or a WUM? No, but if the cap fits...

So exactly which part of my last posting have you taken exception to? Maybe you DO think that trolls and WUMs should be encouraged to drive supporters from here? Or maybe you don't believe there are any trolls or WUMs on here.

I'm not really sure why you've taken such an obvious dislike to me, but I recall recently that you said "we all know where you live so you'd better watch out". Strange sort of threat!

I think it's important to consider what attacking football means in this context. From what I've seen of Spanish football (which I admit is limited) there seems to be more focus on working out your opposition rather than trying to score on the counter. That's what Barcelona do whenever I see them play. The reason they have been so successful over the years is that they are miles ahead of their opposition in terms of quality. If we'd had players anywhere near the quality of Barcelona's players (or Villarreal for that matter) we'd have scored tons of goals and almost everyone would have been raving about Oscar's attacking philosophy. And don't forget, when we got to the back end of the season (Barnsley aside) we started to score quite freely (3 away against Blackburn and Charlton and 2 against Yeovil and Bolton). Oscar did the best he could with the players that he had to play the Barcelona way and he got us to the playoffs. I am thankful for that.

As for those who moan every time the Argus posts about Oscar or less so Gus, you must realise that they have probably mentioned the Albion during the interview and is therefore relevant and worth writing about. If you don't want to read it, DONT. As Naylor has said before some of us might actually be interested in what Oscar has to say and what our opposition (Watford) might play like.
Excellent perspective

Me a poor educated man can read understand(read between the lines,pun etc) yet you seem to think that if a poster does not agree,gives their meaning they are a wum or troll,and start the insulting.

Do you really believe that,think both of you have driven a lot of posters to leave this site,whereas you two should.
Oooookay.

Firstly, when have I ever said you have to agree with me?

Second, anyone who reads this thread back will see you said I was "crapping on" and Jeff was writing "crap slimeball posts". And then you say that I started insulting you??? Actually, all I did was to defend Jeff's right to post his opinions - I even said I didn't necessarily agree with them! Did I accuse YOU of being a troll or a WUM? No, but if the cap fits...

So exactly which part of my last posting have you taken exception to? Maybe you DO think that trolls and WUMs should be encouraged to drive supporters from here? Or maybe you don't believe there are any trolls or WUMs on here.

I'm not really sure why you've taken such an obvious dislike to me, but I recall recently that you said "we all know where you live so you'd better watch out". Strange sort of threat!

Grow up mate. End of.
To start i aint your mate,you seem do read posts to what you think they mean,say.

If you read i only say POSTERS but if the cap fits.Reread the so called threat.

I did use the word you regarding the(be polite) putting down posters who think thanks to you(not only but) they are not wanted and leave the site,because YOU and some other posters think its their site.
Why not go to the NSC site see how long you last like your buddy.

Unless you show some is banter i cannot see you as stated in the above,nothing more than A...

Your reply makes no sense whatsoever. Could you re-write it in English? Pathetic.

I find your comment a bit out off line, it might not off been the best football to watch all the time, but give the guy a break he got us to the playoffs which was a great achievement in his first season, how many players where injured last season.
Wouldn't off stopped you going to wembley had we got there to watch Oscars attacking football, short memories some people the bloke did good for us in my opinion
Up the Albion!!
Why do you type 'off' instead of 'of' or more oddly, 'have'? Takes the attention away from the content of your post.
Unfortunately, you will not educate him, S.J.
I am new here but I have noticed that he is one of the most opinionated and really one of the dimmest people on the site as no matter how many times people correct his spelling he still persists in doing it incorrectly.Then he has the nerve to criticise others who have a different opinion to him or dare to criticise the Albion in any way.
As you infer, why should anyone take any notice of his opinion when he clearly comes across as someone with no attention to detail and a bit backward?
I wonder if he tells people to' S*d of' when he means 'off'?
I believe that this is a football forum, not a written English test and critique or am I missing something?! You are new to the site and as such you would be better welcomed on here by making a contribution to the footballing discussion, rather than an attack on the grammar and views offered by a "regular" on here. The reality is that JL is a genuine fan who has his own views on everything Albion. These may be somewhat partisan in some instances, but they are relevant and credible to the articles written.
I'm not so sure he's new here at all, Mark.
