Arsenal to reap rich rewards from Wilshere’s England setback?

You cannot help but feel sorry for the Arsenal and England international midfield star Jack Wilshere, unless of course you are one of those Tottenham supporting spuds from down the road, or perhaps Jordan Henderson who would probably be the player to miss out if Wilshere had not had to pull out of the latest two England friendly games with a minor injury problem.

The good news from an Arsenal point of view is that Jack will be able to play for the Gunners this weekend, and if I was anyone connected with out opponents Stoke City I would be very worried. We all know that Wilshere’s career at both club level and on the international stage has been devastated by a number of long injury lay-offs and a lot of us thought we may never see him play for Arsenal again after he was sent to Bournemouth on loan and then had his leg broken.

Thankfully the Gunners have got him back, with 31 appearances already this season, and hopefully the rest of his career can carry on without the problems that have dogged him previously. I am sure the player is happy with how many games he has been able to play for Arsenal, if not the course that our season has taken, but he must also have been gutted to have missed out on at least another England cap over the last two weeks.

With the World Cup in Russia coming up this summer Jack would have loved to be able to show Gareth Southgate what he can do for the three lions and start to book his place on the plane, but it was not to be. However, there is still time and Wilshere will bwe keen to waste none of it by producing the sort of performances that will ensure he does get back into the England frame on a regular basis. That could spell big trouble for any team that he plays against, so let’s hope this latest England setback has fired our boy up. Go get em Jack…

Bob.

    I don’t know about a brick shed but I think we need a central defender built like a brick sh*thouse!

      VVD is built like a brick sh*thouse but taken for 75 millions

      De Vrij and Gimenez would be available after this season and they are not as big as VVD, but there is Koulibaly as another option

  2. Break-on-through

    A new contract is Wilshere’s priority, and rightly so. Even if not with us he will want the best possible exit he can get. Just as well this Stoke team is nothing like the one of old. They would not show any professional courtesy and prob target his ankle with a late challenge or follow through.

    Why so many articles about Wilshere?Is he a Messi or something we can’t live without?Why is this guy so important for Arsenal,what special thinks he did for the team in the last 6-7 years?Just because he’s a ” darling” of supporters?Trying to secure a place in England’s team at the expense of Arsenal’s players?Trying to secure a good contract before exit?Wolcott’s name come to mind,he was playing good only before contract renewal.At least he was scoring goals.Wilshere?Fe w goals in a 10 years Arsenal career.Where is the lost if this guy do the right thing and leave?we lose nothing.Good luck to you,Wilshere,but you are not good enough and are taking the place for a real midfielder(Max Meyer’s name just popping up).Cemeteries are full of indispensable people.

    I hope Wenger (if he doesn’t get fired) thinks before spending big money on defense and midfield. Mustafi and Xhaka were not worth £35 million each. It was a waste of precious war chest money. I would say they are worth around £15 to £20 mil tops

    If we had the budget of City, Chelsea, United it wouldn’t be a big deal but we don’t

    The signings of Kolsanic, Holding and Eleny for next to nothing were excellent deals but a Top centre back will cost a lot so we should get an established player not gambles. (ie Hummels, Howedes, Benatia, etc) Xhaka was a HUGE gamble. Most of us had never heard of him before he came. I don’t understand why Wenger spent so much on him

    Not sure if it was Wenger’s fault or our scouts to be fair

    Wenger either spends big unwisely or buys cheap average players (Alexis, Ozil, Aubameyang and Lacazette exceptions)

    If you think about the point in the article, it is actually claiming Wilshere will only produce his best, because he is motivated to win a place in the World Cup squad. If that were true, we really shouldn’t waste time and money on him, should we?
    Anyway, I hope for the best for him, but whether he stays or not, isn’t really crucial for Arsenal, I think. And if he stays, we are probably better of, if he isn’t going to the Worlc Cup

    Wilshere has made a career being paid as a footballer. Got to respect the hustle

    O.T. but does the amount of games hes played mean our physios are now doing a better job of it?
    With less time out this year i think they have been so thumbs up to them.
