Maybe, just maybe, people will start to realise that they should get a new target. Unlikely though, because Arsenal are so easy and we do seem to be the target of choice for the media muppets. And I know that plenty of Arsenal fans have been on the back of Jack Wilshere as well, just as they were with Aaron Ramsey, but we are allowed because we are also the first to stick up for our players when other people give them grief.
How good was it to see Paul Scholes lost for words yesterday? He had started the media backlash against our young midfielder last season but to be fair to him, he might just have given Wilshere the kick up the Arsenal that he needed.
Maybe it is just as Jack has said and he just needed to get a good run of games and to stay fit. That is certainly part of it, but I think a lot of it has been mental and that the 22-year old needed to get his attitude right, but he has done that alright, at least he seems to have so far this season.
For Arsenal and England this season, Wilshere has been one of the best players on the pitch, if not the best. Now we are starting to remember why everyone was raving about him as the future of club and country. Just watch that goal again and try to think who else could have done it. And then watch the one last season. I am thinking Messi, maybe Suarez and then I am struggling.
Maybe I am getting carried away but after all the slating he has taken in recent years, I think a bit of Wilshere love is long overdue. Let’s just hope he keeps it up and, please God, no more injuries.
