Bowen blasting his way back

Jarrod Bowen has admitted recently that his form has not been good enough.

He isn’t a guy who needs to read social media comments to realise what’s happening in his game.

And he was quick to make it clear after the Manchester United game that he was less than content with the way he had been been performing.

However, he appears to be putting those days behind him with his performance against Wolves, benefitting from a Jesse Lingard assist for his  seventh goal of the season when arriving as a sub for Mikey Antonio.

The former Hull striker has been one of the club’s high energy players since arriving and hailed as a top signing by many fans and pundits.

He may well be in line for one of the biggest games we face over the last of them against Leicester |City

And speaking to West Ham Tv he said: “Every time I play, I always give 110 per cent.  “I Obviously wasn’t in the starting XI but I was always ready for whenever my chance was going to come.

“Unfortunately Mick picked up a knock, these things happen, and I just had to do a quick warm-up and get on the pitch and two minutes later the ball was in the back of the net, so it’s all about being ready and I’m always ready to give my all.

“After the Man United game, I said I was disappointed with my recent performances but, since that game, I feel I’m getting my spark back and scoring against Arsenal and scoring on Monday night as well are massive for my confidence.

“These things happen as a player. I’m obviously still new to the Premier League – I don’t want to use that as an excuse but even the manager has told me that sometimes it happens – but it’s all about mindset, focusing on yourself and what you’re good and keeping doing the right things.

“I prepared well even, though I knew I wasn’t playing from the start at Wolves, and I’m glad I took the chance when I got it.”

“We all want to stay at this level and where we’re at in the league right now. We’ve got eight games left and they’re all massive games for us to go out there and achieve something special.”

  1. One of the joys against Wolves was to see Bowen and Forrnals link up with Lingard and score goals. With our injuries those three are vital for Leicester. Probably a back 3/5 prudent and might we play two of Fredericks, Johnson and Masuaku? They have obvious pace and width which we need to counter, whilst mobility in attack against Evans etc is a good option for us.

  2. We’re all with you Jarrod. Keep up the good work. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

  3. His form has dropped compared with last year. He no longer is a true two-way player and has become a defensive liability, though not as bad as Benrhama. Needs to grow up.

  4. I think this new position might suit him a la Arnautovic and Antonio, going from winger to striker.
