Some Manchester City fans were not happy about having a former member of the Luftwaffe on the team. Season ticket holders threatened a boycott and various groups in Manchester and around the country bombarded the club with protest letters. Besides the difficulties with his nationality, Trautmann was replacing the recently retired Frank Swift, one of the greatest keepers in the club's history.[21] Though privately expressing doubts about the signing,[22] club captain Eric Westwood, a Normandy veteran, made a public display of welcoming Trautmann by announcing "There's no war in this dressing room".[23] Trautmann made his first team debut on 19 November against Bolton Wanderers,[20] and after a competent display in his first home match for the club protests shrank, as fans discovered his talent.[24] He continued to receive abuse from crowds at away matches, which affected his concentration in some of his early games; in December 1949 he conceded seven goals at Derby County.[25][26]
