Dobbie's Goalscoring Not A Worry For Jenkins

Dobbie's Goalscoring Not A Worry For Jenkins

Huw Jenkins says he's not worried about Stephen Dobbie's goalscoring for our main play-off rivals Blackpool.

The Scottish striker joined the Seasiders on loan at the beginning of February and he has scored 4 goals in 6 start for Ian Holloway's side, who lie just 2 points adrift from us in 7th.

Many fans have questioned the reasoning behind the move, why we haven't recalled him and why we've allowed him to play in the play-offs for Blackpool if they did get into the top 6.

Instead of worrying about our player's contribution for our biggest play-off rivals, chairman Huw Jenkins says we must concentrate on ourselves and getting the wins we need to stay in the top 6.

'I am like every other Swansea supporter — I would like to see Stephen Dobbie here playing with us because that's what we signed him for,'

'But the point is that a few players had to go out on loan and get some games under their belt.

'Players and their agents are not happy if those players are just sat around on a Saturday.

'They want to go out and play games, and that's where we were with Stephen.'

'We fully expect him to be back at the end of this season to restart his career with us,'

'As for what he does while he is with Blackpool, we can't really worry about that.

'The way I look at it is that if he didn't play for them, somebody else would and, who knows, they might score more goals.

'The fact is that our fate is in our hands, as it has been since Stephen left.

'Therefore we only need to concentrate on ourselves and worry about what we're doing.'


There has been much speculation as you'd expect about Dobbie's future at Swansea City, some of it suggesting that he could be leaving the Liberty Stadium for a number of different reasons. Hopefully the speculation will prove to be a load of rubbish, because he has proved he can score goals at this level - which is something we've been severely lacking in this season.

Well Well, we really have got a lot of goalscorers haven't we Huw Jenkins ? The problem is we have a manager who is so defensive that attack minded players get pushed to one side. If Sousa remains then Dobbie should be looking to stay at Blackpool--- they are a real attacking team.

agree totally, and if Sousa is with us next season, we won't be in the top half as many teams now know all about our style of play, and without a top goalscorer i fear we will struggle all next season as we have the last 3 or 4 months
