West Brom's Scott Sinclair critical of Swansea City fans

SCOTT Sinclair has accused Swansea City fans of having "short memories" after they booed him at West Brom.

Swansea's 2011 play-off final hero was jeered by sections of the visiting support when Michael Laudrup's men won 2-0 at The Hawthorns back in September.

Sinclair was a huge success during two seasons at the Liberty, scoring 27 goals in 2010-11 to help Swansea into the Premier League and then netting another eight times as they survived in the following campaign.

The wideman scored his last senior goal under Laudrup at the start of last season before joining Manchester City in a £6.2 million deal.

When asked about the Swansea fans' hostile reaction to him, Sinclair said: "I really don’t know why they booed me, I’d obviously left and they wanted me to stay.

"Some fans have short memories, they don’t realise what you did for the club and understand why you left.

"Sometimes your decisions don’t work out but it was quite a shame some of the Swansea fans did it.

"I was so happy for them when they won the League Cup this year and I loved every minute of my time there.

"I got some stick and I’m sure when we go to the Liberty I'll get booed again but I'm just focused on doing well for Albion and getting back to the level I was at with Swansea."

    I was and am disappointed with young Scott, on the face of it he was a true Swans starlet, no two ways about it, he left after stardom but to what cost! he should have stayed with us and been a lynch pin in our team build up process. Sad to say he feels the way he does against loyal Swans fans, because he must be aware of the part he played, towards his own downfall. C'mon u SwanssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssYeehaa.

    Scott did great for swansea, but it was never going to work out at city, everyone said that, add in his petulant girlfriend slagging off wales and being a factor in him going and I think a lot of people are just disappointed. Now look at him? Sitting on the bench at west brom , club without a manager towards the bottom of the PL. Routledge replaced scott no problems, but scott should have stayed, it was silly to think he was ready to go from chelsea reject, to swansea star, to man city success story, it was never going to happen, and everyone knew it, so you have to question why he did it. For the money? For his 5 mins of fame? For his GF? Who knows, but he's gone backwards since leaving swansea, as virtually every player whose has left us does.
