Manager's Position Is Not An Issue

Chairman Huw Jenkins today backed Kenny Jackett and says he hasn't even thought about changing the manager.

Jackett has received much criticism from some Swansea City fans after inconsistent results and the fact that we've now dropped down to 12th in the League.

Despite the fact that so far we're failing to better last season's position and league achievements, Jenkins says Jackett's 2-year reign is not likely to finish anytime soon.

He said: ''I don't think the manager's position is an issue,''

''Obviously things are not going as well as we would have hoped, but we have to make sure the club remains strong and that we don't panic or make any rash decisions.

''In the past Swansea have been renowned for being on a rollercoaster ride, for continually changing things round every six months or every year. That's got us nowhere.

''I am not a patient man, but it's not always about what I think, it's about what everybody thinks collectively.

''We haven't sat down as a board of directors and thought about anything along the lines of changing the manager.

''Everybody's disappointed, but we have to keep our heads down, hold on in there and see how things develop over the next few weeks.''

''The key is consistency. At the moment we're producing a good performance and then not matching that standard in the next game.

''For whatever reason, we just aren't firing on all cylinders. But we're not that far away and, fingers crossed, things are going to turn.

''It's Kenny's job and the players' job to make sure that happens.''

I do believe that can be construed as the dreaded "vote of confidence" from the board. the clock is ticking.

Why do you need to change your manager? Your 12th in the league so i would review his position at christmas see how you are doing then.

by then we'll be out of contention. you should know that from your experience last year. if ud have got rid of megson sooner ud probably have gone up. the 2nd half dross you saw from us on saturday is how weve been most of the season. the 1st half was a rarity.

k.j has to go before its to late,his team selection has never been good,as for the long ball its like watching paint dry,they must keep it on the deck they have the players to do it

Jenkins isn't exactly going to say that he's considering a new manager is he? Jackett will be asking questions then and it would spur huge speculation amongst the media and fans.

i cnat see jenkins admiting he wants him out iven if he did coz as kev said it would put a great deal of speculation up in the air and posibley pau a great deal of presure on the players. dot get me wrong hes done a great job for us and he was the man to get us out of league two but hes way out of his depth at this level and in my opinion hes got to go.
