3 games without a win and already some fans believe we`ll have a repeat of the 2005/06 season where we failed to win promotion via the play-offs.
From "when will we secure promotion" to "we`ll fail in the play-offs" just sums up how fast some fans views can change.
It certainly doesn`t take long for some fans to become negative all of a sudden. Last month we were discussing whether we`d reach the 100 points mark and now some are asking if we`ll win in the play-offs.
This will have a negative impact on the team as soon as we return to the Liberty Stadium, so is it beneficial we`re away for the next few games? Less pressure from the stands and a much quieter state of anxiety during a vital game.
Every team will experience a poor run of form and now, finally, we`ve hit it. Three former Swansea City staff have hit back at us. Willy Gueret saved Jason Scotland`s penalty to put us out of the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy, Kenny Jackett`s Millwall began this poor run of form, and Akinfenwa featured in the Northampton team that beat us 4-2 on the weekend.
It`s absolutely critical though that we end it soon with a win on Tuesday night away at Bristol Rovers. With Carlisle coming up soon we can`t afford to still be experiencing form like this when we face a side who have won 15 of 17 games at home this season.
We shouldn`t be negative all of a sudden after 2 defeats and a draw. We`ve all been ecstatic all year about the quality of this team and how we were running away with the League title. That quality hasn`t disappeared over night but no team will win a League without a dip in form. What we mustn`t do now though is convert that dip into a steep fall for the remainder of the season, otherwise negativity of promotion this year will be acceptable.
With 30 points at stake in the last 10 games, the Swans need to claim around 12-15 of them for promotion. 4 or 5 wins in 10 is certainly possible.
|Are you still confident of promotion despite our recent run of form?|
