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.''
