The under-fire Blues boss was the centre of attention among those members of the Fratton faithful who were keen to vent their frustrations on social media following the 1-0 defeat at Wimbledon.

And while many acknowledge that the manager is giving 100 per cent to the cause, the overwhelming feeling was a new man at the helm was needed.

Here’s a selection of the less scathing opinions shared on twitter...

As a club what are we actually waiting for ?? Hoping it turns around ? How long do we wait ? Xmas ??February?? How long until we realise we’ve wasted yet another season ?? #pompey


Players need to take a portion of the blame as well. Easily enough chances to win that 3-0 #pompey


I’ve absolutely no doubt that Jacket is a decent person and gives 100% to his job and Portsmouth, but for the first time, I’m Tweeting that a change is needed. For one reason or another, it’s not working anymore. Time for someone else to take the reigns as Pompey manager.


Tuesday night will be ugly if we are playing similar to how we did against Gillingham and Bolton. Kenny seems a nice enough bloke, always happy to chat on training ground visits but he has reached his limits with us. Time to move on. #Pompey


I do feel bad for Kenny, because I genuinely like the bloke - I hope we don't give him stick in the future. However, I do think it is about time we got in someone new. Hopefully someone that plays good looking football, even if that means we only finish mid-table.


Wimbledon looked the worst team I’ve seen this season and we still lost awful. The tactics and subs are still not right. The players need to stand up aswell #pompey


Am I right in saying we’ve never won wearing the grey kit #Pompey


I've been a huge backer KJ, but now is the time for a change.

We're in danger of our season being over before Christmas.

It's time for a fresh approach & fresh ideas to get the very best out of our talented & under performing squad
