Jenkinson attitude dubbed “astonishing”

carl-jenkinson-562633TV pundit and former Spurs player Garth Crooks is enthusiastic about the virtues and development of Irons defender  Carl Jenkinson writing on BBC Sport.

He has ben impressed with the right back notably against Palace on Saturday afternoon.

The stats show that the player  had a pass accuracy of 90 per cent, created one chance, put in three crosses, and made two interceptions, seven clearances and one block.

And Crooks said: “Carl Jenkinson appears to be having one hell of a roller coaster ride in the claret and blue. During his short but eventful time with the Hammers he’s been sent off, left out, substituted and given away a penalty against Crystal Palace. Nevertheless, this lad keeps bouncing back.

“His ability to shake off these occupational hazards and still try to get among the goals is quite astonishing.

“His finish at Sunderland last week might have been perceived as a fluke but his goal against Crystal Palace smacks of a full-back developing a taste for the art. A player with a terrific will to succeed.”

  1. Here’s what the expert posters at C&H have had to say about Jenkinson in the last week

    “Jenkinson has had a poor start to the season”
    “The quicker jenks gets back to arsenal the better”
    “he has not got his heart set at west ham therefore only use if injurys or suspensions occur”.
    “Would not offer anything for him because we need better”

  2. Ok then Douchebag you f*ckpig,tell us why the club say they aint going to make him a permanent signing if it is to be believed.You are the **** whos balanced arguement about Jenks was that he had scored more than Kane.Fantastic comparision!!!
    You sad man,so bitter & twisted,still copying & pasting comments from last week!!

  3. Why cant one of the bloody moderators get rid of this idiot.He is a pain in the ass,he offers nothing apart from inane comments!!!!

  4. Whats the point Badger,losers like him or her only make another account.Its how they live their sad lives.He or She is a waste of space.Enough said.

  5. Since when has Gareth Crooks word been gospel.Good to see Douchew*nk holds him in such high regard,plank!!
    Dont worry lads the wee sh*te will be back on Wetpants by now along with the other experts & opta addicts

  6. I think his comments are a pretty fair assessment, his form has been up and down this season, the penalty he gave away, was a penalty but it was still pretty unlucky, he had to go for the ball and Gayle timed his move across perfectly, he got his just deserts for that by getting sent off. Jenkinson did do a lot of good things, I doubt he will ever be a world class defender but he is a real assett when it comes to breaking fast on the counter, he is one of the quickest players in the FAPL and can keep those breaks up for 90 minutes, he is a pretty incredible athlete. He is unlikely to be here next season, probably he made a mistake signing his extension with the Gooners he should have run his contract down and signed for us for a low transfer fee or on a Bosman. Maybe in the January window we will sign a new right back or get a loan to purchase deal, it would be good to have someone that is as athletic as Jenks but with more defensive ability hopefully our scouts can find us another gem for later this season or next.

  7. True, Jenks has had an up and down start, but he is now getting into his stride and looking v good. 2 superb poached goals? As full back he has managed to ghost in all but unapposed and do the business. How clever is that?
    THAT PENALTY: WHY WAS IT NOT A FOUL ON JENKS? Can someone please explain why it was not a foul for obstruction? Jenkinson didn’t change direction and was essentially controlling the ball. To me, Gayle’s lunge in front of him was a form of body check…So I don’t agree it was a penalty. It should have been a foul to West Ham.
    Also, who was made captain when Noble was taken off?
