Swansea City fans were confident of a win today as we began our new season in the Championship at the Valley.

52% of our readers predicted an away win against Charlton but we lost 2-0.

3,225 Jacks travelled East and gave Martinez’s team some excellent vocal support. Despite the result, the performance quality was up there to give us some confidence that it could well be a decent season for us this year.

20% got the score correct, predicting a defeat. 28% of our readers predicted a draw.

In our new poll, we want to know if you think we’ll recover after today. Will we reverse the result next Saturday against Nottingham Forest or will things go from bad to worse?

Vote now on the right hand side.

‘Just to congratulate you on your teams performance today. Thought you looked good 2nd half especially, your following was 2nd to none. Loudest away support at the valley for a long time. Good luck for the rest of the season.’
