Easter: The Boos Don't Bother Me

Easter: The Boos Don't Bother Me

Jermaine Easter says the boos he got from some of his own fans during the 1-1 draw at home to Millwall is 'water off a duck's back'.

The new loan signing came on as a second half substitute during last Friday's game and some of the home crowd booed the striker because of his Cardiff roots, plus he did the 'ayatollah' celebration after scoring against us at the Liberty Stadium.

Easter said the boos don't bother him:

'I heard some boos when I came on last Friday, although I thought it would mainly be from the Millwall fans because I had a spell there,'

'I suppose it's to be expected (that there will be boos) if you do what I did in the past. There are going to be some fans who will take longer to warm to me than others.

'But if I was to get the winner this weekend, I'm sure everything would be different. Fans cheer when you are winning and boo when you are not, that's the way it works.

'The vast majority of fans I've spoken to in and around the ground have welcomed me, and the boos are just water off a duck's back.'

But he got precious few opportunities to impress as Swansea struggled to create.

'It went OK for me, but it was difficult because Millwall were well organised and well set up,'

'It was difficult to get on the end of anything, but hopefully something might fall my way this weekend.

'I don't think we passed it as well as we can last Friday. Things didn't really go our way, and the lads have told me that's the way it's been going at home in the last few games. But the onus will be on Sheffield United to come and attack us tomorrow, so hopefully there will be more room for the likes of Scott (Sinclair) and Nathan (Dyer) to create things.'


Easter is now hoping to be more involved in the first team as he competes with Dobbie and Beattie for a place:

'The manager said when I joined that he would give me opportunities, and it was pleasing to be involved against Millwall,'

'I am training hard to try to push my way into the team. If I can do that, I will then try to score as many goals as I can.

'I'm sure this team will create chances, so hopefully a few of them will come my way.'


There was a lot of mixed opinions amongst the fans following Easter's arrival. Many questioned whether he is good enough for us, having joined from League One outfit MK Dons. Plus his lack of League goals this season is also another turn off, not to mention his Cardiff background.

Other fans put some blame on the board for not providing the funds for Rodgers to go out and get a quality striker to help boost our promotion bid.
