Carl Jenkinson

Carl Jenkinson

After an impressive spell on loan last season, Carl Jenkinson returned to West Ham on loan for 2015/16 from Arsenal.

An England U21 regular last term, Jenkinson would have had his sights set on a return to the England senior squad especially as there are doubts cast over the defensive abilities of Kyle Walker and Nathaniel Clyne.

The 23-year-old, however, has thus far failed to replicate last season’s performances and his individual errors have led to a few goals this year.

Verdict – Not good enough.

  1. Great read and whilst I agree that they may not warrant a place in England sides of old the current crop being played are very weak and when I watched the game on Friday I felt all of these players could have given as good as or better account of themselves than those currently holding down a place. How Woy can replace a defensive midfielder of Carrick with Lingard who from what I know is more of a wide player defies logic even before you look at the fact the kid has played 3 premiership games. This surely had to be a time to bring in Noble? Contradicting myself here a bit but I don’t think Noble will be in the West Ham side much longer but in the England set up we don’t have a Song, Kouyate, Obiang, Moses, Lanzini, Zarate or a Payet. And given the fact Carrick will be 34 at the time of the Euros why is he even in the squad for the warm ups? Woy is an enigma I personally don’t think has a clue.
