Roy Keeping Jenkinson Up His Massive Sleeves

Roy Keeping Jenkinson Up His Massive Sleeves

England manager Roy Hodgson has exposed himself as a man with massive sleeves after he claims he`s keep Arsenal full-back, Carl Jenkinson up there.

Jenkinson, a life-long Arsenal fan has a couple of options when it comes to international football. Born in Harlow, Jenks has an English father and Finnish mother & has represented both nations at youth level, however the player seems to have made his choice after training with the England team this week and leaving Hodgson admitting he`s waiting for the right time to unleash the full-back.

Jenkinson had a bit of a wobbly first season with the Gunners, however his footballing bravery and willingness to always keep going and never to hide won the hearts and minds of the Ashburton faithful.

However this season has seen Carl come on leaps and bounds whilst filling in for the injured Bacary Sagna, with some mightily impressive displays, indeed he`s playing so well he is a legitimate choice for the starting XI.

Hodgson though thinks it`s best to take our time with the player.

"On this occasion, we decided to... keep Jenkinson up our sleeves, but he'll be very much in our thoughts when it comes to the next friendly match.

'After speaking to Arsène I am also conscious that his rise has been meteoric. He's only 20 and it's nice to temper things a little bit, but he wouldn't be out of place in the squad.'

Yeah it's a real crying shame, in the same way that Arteta is at home with his feet up saving his all for Arsenal, gutting.

Jenks doesn't have to be in a hurry as he has plenty of time and doing right, getting the attention of the national team manager. If he carries on as he has this season, he won't be worrying about the players in front of him for England.

Naughton is poor. he can't even get into the Norwich team let alone Spurs. Jenkinson is getting better whereas Walker against San Marino looked poor. his crosses were way below par for an England player.

Wasted in that shambles of an England team. I wouldn't batter an eye lid if all the English arsenal boys stayed at home for every mind numbing England international. They would struggle stringing anal beads together let alone a few more passes.
