Whilst it would have been a nice Christmas dream, very few Swans fans expected to get anything at Anfield yesterday evening I doubt.
Although we managed to get a remarkable 3-2 victory there last year, the whole feeling around this team is very different.
We looked odds on to be the bottom team in the Premier League before last night’s 5-0 humiliation at Anfield, but the way in which the team capitulated has made Swans fans even more depressed than normal today.
A few days ago, Chairman Huw Jenkins tried to fight back within his programme notes and defend the position he is in and the record he has had.
There is no doubt that Huw helped take the club from the depths of Division 4 to the Premier League and was loved by pretty much all Swans fans for what he achieved.
The decisions he has made in recent years however have tarnished his reputation amongst the Jack army and his decision to sell his stake in the club to 27 American speculators has caused a lot of unrest within the Swansea faithful.
Football is a results business though and if the team were thriving many might have forgotten about this but the demise of the ‘Swansea Way’ and total apathy shown by many players has led the fans to point the finger of dissatisfaction at one person at the club.
In recent weeks, a newly formed organisation the ‘Swansea City Supporters Alliance’ came together to try and drive change at the club and one of the first things they asked for was for Huw Jenkins to leave his role.
We wanted to measure the feelings of fans though in a more scientific way and see if Huw still has support within the Swansea City fanbase. So we asked a simple question last night on our @swansinfo Twitter feed and the results have been very clear.
Simple question. He's been in the hot seat for some 12 years but is his time up or does he deserve to still be chairman? You decide 👇👇

With over 1,260 fans voting, a massive 91% of fans think Huw Jenkins should leave his role as Chairman. It would seem clear then that the significant majority of Swans fans want the Chairman out.
Whether the American majority shareholders will listen to the views of the Swans fans is another matter but the evidence from the survey is clear
Change is wanted by 9 out of 10 fans and with such a staggering amount wanting him gone, you wonder how long he can survive in his role!
What are your thoughts? Do you think his time is up? Who should replace him if he does go? Let us know your views on the SCFC2 Forum.
