Is Wenger logical? Surely it's time to recall Jenkinson

By 1970's Gooner

In my previous post I spelled out the 5 ways we can replace Debuchy. All of them were rearrangements of players positions from within the squad. None of them are satisfactory for me. We all know what Wenger will do. He will probably play Bellerin who I consider inexperienced and very green yet to perform in that position with the effectiveness and stature that is required.

If you want to consider the other options then this is the link: The 5 options for replacing Debuchy

But surely by far the best option is to recall Jenkinson from his loan to West Ham. SURELY!

Wenger recalled Coquelin from his loan to Charlton with great success as we have seen. Why not do the same with Jenkinson. He has already played more than 10 games as a first choice for big Sam and has performed with distinction.

There is some information that there is no recall clause in the loan agreement but what the hell, Arsenal are big enough to pay the necessary monetary penalty (as usually is stipulated in such agreements in the case one of the parties wanting out).

The alternative is for Wenger to buy that Central Defender he has been promising so long and hope that he will also be able to play RB!!!!!

But I ask you will AW buy a defender?

And if he actually buys one (which I doubt) will he buy him now or at the end of the window? By which time it may be too late.

And if he has not played in the PL before will he acclimatise almost immediately?

So you see logic dictates that Carl Jenkinson should start at RB against Man City.

But is Wenger logical?

We don't have an option to recall him, that's why we haven't recalled him

Surely they can break the no recall clause and pay a small penalty!

no recall fee in the contract from what i hear. west ham would hold us to ransom. plus we have bellerin and chambers. best thing to do is buy a centre half and a midfielder as we need them and then chambers will not have to cover that position and coquillen can provide extra cover at full back. want jenkinson back next year he has amazing potential i think. let him have game time.
