Well I must admit I would never have thought that I would hear our very own Mr Arsenal, Jack Wilshere, saying that he wanted the Gunners to lose a game, but this has finally happened in this crazy season.
Obviously, due to his loan conditions, Jack will not be able to actually take the pitch on Sunday at the Emirates, but he has left us in no doubt which team he will cheering for. When he was asked if he was upset not to be playing his tenth game of the season for the Cherries, Wilshere said: “Yes, it’s frustrating of course, I’ve just got a run of games.
“But it might be good for me, to miss one and go again – but I’ll be there.
“At the moment I’m a Bournemouth player, so I want Bournemouth to win.”
Now now Jack, I certainly hope you are only just saying that so as not to upset your new team-mates and the Bournemouth supporters, and don’t really mean it.
And I wonder if he would be happy to see Arsenal win the League without him? He would surely be kicking himself for asking to leave if he has messed up a chance to get a League Winners Medal with the club he supposedly loves….
