The Watford Observer can confirm the Hornets have reached an agreement with Oscar Garcia for the Spaniard to become their new head coach and it will be announced later today.

The Golden Boys had been in talks with three candidates over the weekend but Garcia was their number one target.

However, they faced competition from Leeds United and we were told another Spanish club were also interested.

But Garcia has agreed to join Watford and will be unveiled as the club’s new boss imminently.

The 41-year-old will be flying to England around midday and will meet club officials early this afternoon.

The Watford players are due in training this afternoon so Garcia is expected to meet the squad later today.

Garcia began his coaching career in 2009 as part of Jordi Cruyff’s staff on the Catalonia national side.

He then spent two years coaching in Barcelona’s Academy before taking the role as head coach at Maccabi Tel Aviv in 2012.

He spent one season with the Israeli club but it was a successful one as he guided the side to the league title.

However, he resigned at the end of the campaign, citing personal reasons for his departure.

His success in Israel caught the attention of Championship club Brighton and they appointed Garcia as head coach in June last year.

He spent one season with the Seasiders. They finished sixth in the league and reached the play-offs. But they were beaten in the semi-finals by Derby County and the Spaniard resigned on May 12.

He rejoined Maccabi again at the start of June but his second spell with the club lasted less than three months as he resigned once more on Tuesday.

The club stated Garcia’s departure was down to the current security situation in Israel.

Final piece of the jigsaw!
He's shown himself to be a good coach so should get us organised, I know his Brighton team wasn't that exciting but it was hard to break down with their players being able to see out games , which will bode well for us in future close matches.
Not to concerned about what Brighton fans say , OG has had a great football education so should be adaptable with what ever style suits the players strengths he has to work with.

Well now we don't need to avoid talking about the elephant in the room any longer. Sannino has gone and been replaced.

Yes he was a likeable guy and he did add value but he did not have the dressing room and I think we may have seen too many Donny type games waiting an hour for a shot on target. I think we would have got promoted with him, but whoever is Coach - the target has to be play-offs guaranteed by March and promotion early April.

Spend last month looking at the rest of the squad for new contracts/profession
al forms.

Mr Deeney - don't be a smart Alec again - no glut of late contenders for goal of the season after nominations have "closed". It's not funny.

Oscar, welcome to Watford. I hope you have a long and successful association with the club including promotion to the Premier League and keeping us there.

Not many coaches inherit such a squad and such a league position. Hopefully he can work the Pozzo way as I don't want to be changing coach every 6 months.

As regards the style of football, a lot of European coaches are pragmatic and work around with what they have. So circumstances at Brighton - including extended finances following their stadium move - may have dicatated what he could do. Don't know what style he played at Maccabi, but would have had to play the Barcelona way there. Probably adjusts to the resources he has. (I recall watching Capello's AC MIlan (fantastic side) in the early 90s which contrasted with the mainly dismal football as England manager).

Good luck and thank you to Beppe for steadying the ship, improving the fitness and mental toughness this term (no silly late goals yet) and getting us to second.

So please enlighten everyone, why did he leave?
Because the Pozzos didn't rate his man management, not because Dyer beat his chest.

What a sympathetic person you are. He may well suffer from depression. Lots of people do and we as society have to recognise this and do our best to support those who have to struggle to overcome this awful illness.
Using the word 'depressive' in a derogatory fashion would not seem to be altogether supportive or do you have another opinion?
He may well suffer from depression but why a manic depressive, that would be my question. Bipolar disorder isn't something you can diagnose from a photograph.
