Oscar Garcia: Attracting interest from Osasuna

The 40-year-old former Barcelona player and youth team coach only took the job at Brighton in June this year, following a spell in charge of Maccabi Tel Aviv.

The Seagulls have won two, drawn one and lost two of their first five league games this season to sit mid-table in the early Championship standings.

However, they clearly do not want another change of manager so soon after the departure of Gus Poyet, who was fired in the summer after an investigation by the club's internal disciplinary panel.

Osasuna are on the look-out for a new boss following the firing on Tuesday of Jose Luis Mendilibar.

The club's board made the decision to hire a new man after a 3-0 loss to Villarreal at the weekend made it three successive defeats to start the new season.

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
