Support Jason Says Agent

Scotland tops the League One scoring charts by 2 or 3 goals from Jermaine Beckford and looks set to walk away with the award for the League One top goalscorer as the Swans look set to achieve promotion to the Championship.

But still that is not enough to win over the support of all the fans and now it seems that it is startinf to affect the players confidence and his agent would like more support to ensure Swansea see the best of his man.  And if there is better than 25 goals to come then it has to be worth making the effort for surely.

"I have kept my counsel for a few months on this one," Berry said.

"But I've decided to say something because it hurts Jason that the fans are not giving him the acclaim he deserves.

"I've watched a few games this season and I think 75 per cent of the Swansea fans support Jason, but they are the quiet majority.

"The minority seem to be louder and I don't think it's fair.

"Look at what he's had to deal with this season. He's had to get used to a new club in a new league, he's had to get used to a new role playing up front on his own and he's had to replace Lee Trundle.

"He's responded with 25 goals, making him the top-scorer in the league, and yet the fans haven't even got a chant going for him.

"I thought the Welsh were supposed to be a nation of singers, so I just can't understand that.

"How about the old one 'Super Kevin Phillips'. Why aren't they singing 'Super Jason Scotland'?"

"Anybody who knows anything about football knows Jason works his socks off," Berry added.

"Thank God Roberto Martinez and his team-mates recognise that, because they are the ones keeping Jason going at the moment.

"He was loved by the fans at St Johnstone, Dundee United and Defence Force.

"He was as big as Lee Trundle was at Swansea at all his previous clubs, so he can't understand why he hasn't had the same welcome at Swansea.

"Jason is a smashing lad who always has a smile on his face, and I think he could be a bigger star than Trundle was with the right support.

"This is a rallying cry from me for the fans to get behind him.

"Jason has a bag of tricks as big as Trundle's, but he'll only produce them when he feels comfortable and confident," he said.

"I keep asking him where his tricks are, but so far he hasn't been in the right mood.

"If Swansea fans put their arm round him, they will get more in return."

Time for a burst of Flower of Scotland??
