Swansea-Oldham Match Reaction

Swansea-Oldham Match Reaction

Kenny Jackett rightly pointed out the obvious after his side's shockingly poor performance at home to Oldham today.

He said: 'It was a very disappointing performance and I felt Oldham were the better side and fully deserved to take all the points.

'They had the better of the first half and merited the lead but we came back at them after the interval to make it a closer game, only to fall away again.

'It is hard to explain but there is extreme disappointment in the dressing room because we really didn't deserve anything from the game.'


More and more fans are beginning to lose patience in the manager and his under-performing squad as we lack any passion, pride and will to win as we fall out of the play-off places.

Less than 10,000 fans were at the Liberty Stadium to witness what was probably our worst performance of the season against a Latics side who now go top of League One.

After defending him in the past when he's received criticism from the fans, I now think Jackett can take us no further.

He's reached his limit. He did well to build a strong squad at the beginning to get us promoted from League Two, but he simply can't get us playing as a structured unit to get us into the Championship - a league we are potentially capable of playing in. After today's shambles however, that looks a long way off if Jackett's got anything to do with it.

Oldham boss John Sheridan was obviously delighted to see his side go top and he said: 'It was great result and the football we played as the away side was different class,' said Sheridan.

'We dealt with everything they had, created the better chances and fully deserved the victory. The goal came from a great move with a good build up and Paul Warne finished it off well.

'We are playing with confidence, believing in ourselves, and we go into every game looking to win.'


So, is Jackett's time finally up? or are you still backing the manager to turn things around. Let us know by posting a comment below or discussing the Swans with other fans in our Forum.

The attendance says it all, and it will be under 9000 before long, so Jenkins if you want to lose money, Keep Jackett where he is

It was pace that caused us a lot of problems in the first half. Changes at half time did stop the threat down the left wing. The Scouts repoting back on the opposition must get it right and the Manager must start the game with the best eleven and get the tactics correct.
