Gueret Shocked At Being Dropped

Gueret Shocked At Being Dropped

Goalkeeper Willy Gueret was shocked at Kenny Jackett's decision on Tuesday to drop him ahead of Andy Oakes.

The former Walsall 'keeper signed in the Summer and is set to keep his place when Swansea City travel to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Gueret said: 'I don't feel I've done anything wrong but I have to cope with it,' he said.

'It was a shock, I didn't see it coming. It was the manager's decision as he felt I needed a break. I'll just have to keep working hard every day.

'I know we had two bad results, but I don't feel I let the team down.

'It's not an easy thing to take when you've been playing every single game for the last two-and-a-half years - especially when you feel you haven't done anything wrong.

'If I was making mistakes, fair enough. I'll just keep working hard in training and come back into the team as quick as possible.'


Kenny Jackett said he needed a break in the side: 'I think there is a time for everybody to come out of the side,' Jackett told BBC Sport Wales.

'Mentally as well as physically, you need to give people a breather. Willy's a really good professional and I'm sure he'll be back.

'I've got confidence in both my goalkeepers. They've both got experience, quality and whoever plays I'm confident the goalkeeping position is well looked after.

'I was pleased with Andy, it was a good debut for him. It's likely Andy will keep his place [to face Nottingham Forest on Saturday].

'When you win a game like that, you don't make too many changes.'

Sorry Willy but you must have been just about the only one who didn't see it coming. You really must command the box and be prepared to take the initiative by coming off your line whenever needed. Then and only then will the back four have total confidence in their keeper.

Yeep the lack of confidence he spreads to the defence is easily noticed, he doesn't take charge which leads to the defenders not takin the initiative and too often a team gets given a soft goal!!

The penalty area is the Keeper's domain. He has to take control and rule it. Unfortunately, Willie, you didn't do it. The defenders have told him even last season that he should have come for some of the balls. The Goal Keeping Coach is still playing - So he is never there to see live games? and if he watches match videos he is not picking it up.

Sorry Willy you are a great shot stopper but we need a goalie who throws himself into defence. Get off your line and challenge in the air and at the feet of attackers and you will be back. Meanwhile, a huge well done to Andy showing how it should be done. Deserves to keep his place,
