Jackett: 'It Was A Gut Feeling'

Jackett: 'It Was A Gut Feeling'

Swansea City boss Kenny Jackett revealed it was a ''gut feeling'' for bringing back goalkeeper Willy Gueret to the side on Friday night after dropping him just 2 games ago.

The Frenchman also revealed he was not surprised by the gaffer's decision and said: ''It was a surprise to be left out in the first place, but not to be back in the team.

''I know why the gaffer did it, that was his decision, but it was hard for me to cope with. I was upset. Now I'm fresh and I will go again.''

''It's unfortunate for Andy (Oakes) and I feel for him, but that's football,''

''I've worked hard for two weeks and hopefully I'll benefit from the rest. As a goalkeeper I don't expect to be dropped and I want to play in every single game now.''


Kenny Jackett explained his decision to recall Gueret: ''Willy's a terrific keeper, I think Andy's a good acquisition for us and I've been pleased with him.

''But there's a time when everybody needs a rest and Willy's had it full on since he joined us. I felt the time was right to take him out of the side for a couple of games and take the focus off him.

''It wasn't a plan just to leave him out for two games and I couldn't criticise Andy for what he did.

''Whatever the reason, it was a gut feeling that I should bring Willy back and he looked back to his best against Tranmere. Andy has reacted positively.''


Despite keeping a clean-sheet against Tranmere last Friday, the Swans missed some golden chances to take all three-points with Andy Robinson in particular being guilty of that.

We travel to Chesterfield next Saturday, who sit just a place above us in 11th.

Yeah but basing a decision on a gut feeling? I don't really like the sound of that. He needed a rest then surely it's fair to give Oakes more than 2 games to prove himself. That won't do his morale much good. Again, KJ proves his man-management skills leave a lot to be desired.
