Jenks making all the right noises

jenkinson1Carl Jenkinson’s attitude towards all things West Ham suggest he WILL become a permanent fixture at the club next season.

All season his enthusiasm and readiness to hold a view on the possibilities for next season appear to show a deepening attachment to the club.

And with Arsenal – as reported previously on this site – well placed for right backs it will be a surprise if he doesn’t become a full time Hammer next season.

Sources inside the club  have made it clear that Guy Demel can leave and a £6 million deal seems well on the cards for Jenkinson.

The Arsenal loanee’s latest pronouncement on the teams position remains relentlessly upbeat despite the disappointing run of results.

“It’s time to regroup and we’ve still got a very important run-in until the end of the season. A European place is what we’ve targeted up all season and that’s still the case. I think that’s realistic.

“Our luck will change and things will start going for us, hopefully. And when they do, we’ll get some points on the board.”

  1. I just hope he doesnt change his mind if we do finish 10th

  2. I hope he does….

  3. Jonham is on his one man mission to convince everyone that Jenks is rubbish again,lol 😀

  4. Johnham1 did Jenkinson refuse your advances and you are making it personal,
    Or are you on those drugs we have heard about,we have not had a good right back for years and don’t go calling Demel a good right back he is passable at the best,
    We should snap him up at any price under 10 mil before we loose him and find cover for him the same as we have Cresswell.
    Tyson don’t bite mate could be a friend of Conkers.

  5. Haha,i aint biting at all.Just makes me laugh that jon has his personal crusade to not sign Jenkinson 😀

  6. I know what would happen if we got a defensive minded proper full back who only defends,then everyone would say he was useless because he doesnt get forward enough & get crosses in,lol,fullbacks aint like they just to be,these days their attacking qualities are valued as much as their defensive work.If you want a pure fullback go back in the tardis to times when they never went over the half way line 😉

  7. Just sign him up.I dont give a damn whether he is a little naive defending,his overall game is fine.If we get him for 6mill it is nothing in this day & age of transfer prices.It aint even a risk for that price.Get the deal done.If we dont sign him we need to find someone else.Who else are we going to get for 6mill,he is already at the club so there will need to be no intergration into the team,it just makes common sense.Unless youre John the fullback scout of course,lol 😉

  8. Now that the Reid saga is over, Jenks should be our no1 priority. Yes even above Alex Song, who has lost his mojo as we have slid down the table, Jenks has been a complete professional and been one of the most important parts of our attack. Contender for hammer of the year alongside Cresswell.

  9. My friends I am sorry for disagreeing with you on Jenks, and I don’t often disagree with you. I would love BFS to try Burke or Oxford at RB for the rest of the season just to prove my point, not good enough for Arsenal therefore not good enough for West Ham. To be honest I never rated him at Arsenal either. I hope he proves me wrong but I am sorry I doubt it. I would not spend 6 million on him, if u asked me to spend 2m I would still think about it. Sorry again I don’t often disagree with you..

  10. No need to apolgise John,it is your opinion,i was only pulling your leg.But if i think of some of the **** players who get sold for tens of millions then 6mill is peanuts.As for only 2mill,you could just about get a decent league one player for that these days 😉

  11. I wouldn’t say Jenks is not good enough for Arsenal. I know a lot of fans who want him back there. The reason he fell down the pecking order, is because they brought in a couple of RBs for £15m+ each. £2m wouldn’t even get a phone call back. £2m wouldn’t even get you JOB or Demel while under contract. £6m for Jenks is a bargain, and we should snap it up while it’s on the table. Even if he wasn’t good enough for Arsenal, he could do a job for us. They are an established top 4 side, and we’ve only been back in the league a few years. Time to come back to reality.
