Jenkinson out for season

carl-jenkinson-562633Carl Jenkinson has been ruled out of action for the rest of the season after suffering an injury  during the game against Manchester City at the weekend.

Chairman’s son Jack Sullivan has tweeted the news over the last few minutes and it seems likely – as is the case with all injured loan players – the player will now be on his way back to his parent club.

Jenkinson left the action against City after conceding a needless penalty, converted by the victim of his foul, Sergio Aguero.

He walked off a minute later pointing to towards his ankle or lower leg after Slaven Bilic called to him from the dug out.

It looked a fairly harmless problem but Sullivan Jnr claims in his tweet that it is more serious than had been at first thought.He declared: “Carl Jenkinson’s injury is far more serious than we thought and is our for the rest of the season. We wish Carl the speediest of  recoveries.”

The club have since released a statement saying: “West Ham United can confirm that Carl Jenkinson injured his left knee during the early stages of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League fixture with Manchester City.Unfortunately, it appears that Carl has suffered a significant injury and he will be assessed by a specialist in central London on Wednesday.A further update will be provided when the full extent of the injury has been confirmed.”

  1. The Mirror is saying it’s a Cruciate Ligament injury, maybe there’s an underlying problem thst could explain his poor form this term – who knows!

  2. The Official site is now saying it’s his left knee so the Mirror could well be right!

  3. People will say this is a cover story ? His form and confidence is shot ! They are resting him!
    What is the situation with the contract , money , and does insurance cover it Hugh, or is it just terminated. Also can we loan another prem player !
    Arsenal can be blamed for his form and this outcome , greed !!! Glad it backfired !!
    Wish jenks a speed,y recovery and good luck but if I’m honest I’m glad he has gone !!
    Wenger stopped the lad having a career with us , he will never be a first team player at the gooners , he will be sold at a later date for 2-3 mill !! Sad for the boy ?

  4. Just not his season, we all wish him well and thank him for last season’s efforts..

  5. How can Arsenal be blamed for his form & this outcome???
    Feel sorry for the lad, good luck for the future.

  6. Good luck and best wishes on the recovery Carl !

  7. May save his career,because he was not going to find any form with us,he will have a hard
    Fight now to come back as Wenger won’t play him,
    Essex we are blaming Arsenal for turning his head over money and having a career,even if the likes of me did not want him if he had agreed a fee around £5 million and let the boy move a lot of teams would have come in for him and he would have had a chance, now he is stuck with his last games for us and a stupid price over his head,
    No one is going to pay him £40 k aweek and give The Gooners more than £2.5 million
    So now it’s down to the championship with someone like Hippo no more London or maybe Nolegs will loan him

  8. I really feel sorry for the lad. I though I would read more comments a’la “good he will leave” and sh*t like that around the world web but really glad we all (most) remember what he did for us last season and wishing him a speedy recovery! What a nightmare season….

    On a different note, Sean, any news on the young Norwegian on trial from Vålerenga (yeah, I can do that….) – I’m viking as well but don’t really follow Norwegian fotball or I would be glad to share my thoughts hehe.

  9. I would like an update as well Sean,so often we here someone is on trial and even get a video to watch then we here nothing,
    How is the Young Croatia forward doing with the development squad,
    Why is Dobson playing in midfield I thiught he was a right back ,
    Where are all the Westley knockers now the team is playing with the same confidence the first team has,
    These are important subjects to us not how Nolegs or Hippo are doing,
    We don’t care What Rednapp thinks about anything,
    Why the Spuds now want Yimlaz

  10. Which Croatian are you talking about Bubs?

  11. Glad to see so many sympathetic comments for Jenks. Good luck Carl, make a full recovery, and thank you for some GREAT football, and your loyalty to WHU…Take no notice of the prats; if they can boo Scott Parker, then they are capable of anything stupid.
    I hope you get your career back on track. It was only last season we were talking about you playing for England. Hope you make it a reality. You’re a good’n as far as I am concerned….
