One of the main reasons for the Arsenal and England international star Jack Wilshere is leaving the club on loan for the season is to get the regular game time he needs to get his career back on the right track. So in that respect I can see that joining the Premier League club AFC Bournemouth is a great idea as he is almost certain to start as long as he is match fit.
But the main reason he has not been getting this regular game time with the Gunners is the terrible luck he has had with a string of injuries that have plagued our midfielder since he broke through from the academy as a scintillating teenager.
In the season of 2010-11 Wilshere grabbed the attention of the world with his brilliant performances and he ended the season on a real high after making 49 appearances in all competitions. That was as good as it got for Jack though, as he did not feature at all the following year after getting injured in pre-season and it has been stop-start for the Gunner ever since, mainly stop.
So the most important thing for him, above and beyond playing regular football, is to stay injury free, so the club he is joining may not be the best choice after all, because Bournemouth had a shocking injury record last season and did very well to avoid being relegated because of it.
Perhaps it was just bad luck for the Cherries but we have been saying that about Arsenal for years and it just keeps happening so you have to start thinking there might be an underlying problem. Only time will tell, of course, but if Wilshere suffers more injury woe on the south coast this year I am sure that his choice of loan club will be questioned.
Good luck Jack and we all wish you well and want you back and reinvigorated.
