…and now for the bad news

jenkinson1And now for the bad news!

At the end of a near perfect day there was grim news for Sam Allardyce after Carl Jenkinson  hobbled off in the 79th minute.

And afterwards the manager confirmed that the right back again has a hamstring injury which is the continuing story of the player’s season.

Looking bleakly into the middle distance the manager simply confirmed: “It’s a hamstring.”

The on-loan Arsenal right back was first hit with the same injury in pre-season and was forced to pull out of England under-21 duty against Croatia in October.

Now the player looks certain to miss part of the Christmas programme depending on the severity of the injury which will be checked out over the next couple of days.

  1. That’s a real shame as love the guy! #banter!

    I was a bit worried when JOB came on, due to lack of match practice, do we need to firm up on this position as leaves us a bit short again?

  2. I thought as much. When I saw him clutching his leg and moving gingerly I feared the worse!
    I also started to worry for Song as well, as he was hobbling about at the end as well. But I take it from his dancing about in the dressing room after the game he is ok?

    It’s a real shame about jenks as with proper fullbacks who can get forward and deliver stunning crosses, have been a mainstay to our good form this season.

    It is disappointing to loose him at this time not only because of the busy Xmas period but because we now have the strikers returning to take advantage of the quality crosses provided.
    Not going to let it spoil the day though! 27points! And third place in the prem! COYI!

  3. Depends on Arsenals trust of our medical team on whether he returns

  4. Nice to get on here at last btw I’ve been reading stuff on here a while and quite pleased with everybody’s posts/reactions etc, my 2 boys are always quoting stuff from newsnow and I always tell them “if it’s not on the official site or Claret and Hugh, take it with a pinch of salt”
