Attacking in a 4-3-3 formation – Issue 23 (June 2012)
As a player, Kenny Jackett was one of football’s ‘one club men’, making 337 appearances for hometown side Watford between 1980 and 1990. Sadly, he was forced to retire from the game due to a serious knee injury, with Luther Blissett’s all-time appearance record in sight.
On retirement, he undertook a variety of coaching roles at the club before moving to QPR under Ian Holloway.
Stepping up into management in 2004, he earned promotion for Swansea City from League Two in 2005, taking the club to the play-off final the following year, where they lost out to Barnsley in a penalty shoot-out.
After a short spell as reserve team manager at Manchester City, Jackett accepted the offer to join Millwall in March 2007. The club lost their 2008/09 playoff final to Scunthorpe United, but secured promotion the following season by defeating Swindon Town in the end-of-season Wembley knockout fixture.
