Is there anyone else who thinks the way Sagna has been playing that there would have been little harm to give Jenkinson some more minutes?
Sagna has been awful and maybe that is because he is unhappy about the club or his contract situation. I think Jenkinson has shown some promise and I wonder why he has not been played more often.
Sagna was awful against Southampton and I don't think it would have hurt us to give Jenkinson 45 minutes in the second half of that game or maybe we could have played him in the FACup against Swansea but for some strange reason Jenkinson has been frozen out.
Despite the importance of all games I think it is important to rotate the squad to avoid burn-out, and to bring along younger players. SAF is giving Hernandez and Welbeck minutes, in fact he seems to bring along most of his players of the future with some decent rotation. He has also rested RVP on a number of occasions.
You can not play your first 11 all the time even if it means playing the likes of Rosicky and Jenkinson from time to time.
I am worried about Carzorla (and maybe Wilshire) burning out in the second half of the season as a result of too many minutes.
