I know that the Arsenal players need to have a break in the summer to relax and recover from the stresses and strains that their minds and bodies are put under during a gruelling season. And those Arsenal stars that have been at the World Cup finals in Brazil will have a shorter break than the rest.
Maybe that is why Jack Wilshere is making the most of his own holiday, although I am not sure how pleased his manager Arsene Wenger will be when he hears that the young midfielder has been caught on camera smoking a cogarette, again! Especially after the 22-year old apologised and vowed not to smoke again when he was caught out in London last year. .......Read the full article here
There is no doubt that the Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere has had his fair share of bad luck and trouble in his short football career. And last season was no different, with more niggling injuries preventing him from having a big impact on the Arsenal season.
Then the Arsenal man was savaged on live TV by the pundit and former Man United star Paul Scholes, who claimed that Wilshere had not progresses at all in the last four years. Harsh? I thought so, especially with the amount of time on the pitch that the 22-year old has missed through injury. .......Read the full article here
The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has had a torrid season since his injury with the England team earlier this year, and he was only used sparingly by Roy Hodgson in Brazil. His career has been blighted with injuries ever since he exploded onto the scene as a precocious 16 year-old.
Now he realises that he can’t be called a promising youngster any longer and its time for him to mature. He told the Guardian: “It’s easy for me to stand here and say: ‘We’re young, we can go forward,’” .......Read the full article here
Definitely the biggest surprise of the World Cup so far has been Costa Rica, who, despite being a tiny country with a population smaller than London, have already beaten the heavyweights of Uruguay and Italy.
Arsenal’s Joel Campbell was the star of the first win, and a Fulham reject Bryan Ruiz scored the only goal against Italy. Both players now believe they can now go on and send England home with their tails between their legs.
Campbell said in the Star: “Can we beat England? Yes, of course. We have a good team and it’s another game like playing against Uruguay and Italy. .......Read the full article here
Joel Campbell Edging Closer To Arsenal Return by A.T.
Following a very successful club campaign for Olympiakos in Greece last season, and a particularly impressive start to the World Cup, there has been a lot of talk about Arsenal finally bringing in Costa Rican forward Joel Campbell to play in the Gunners first-team.
Since moving to the Emirates in 2011, the young striker has had three loan spells away from the club, going out on loan to Lorient, Real Betis and most recently, the Greek champions. But despite his lack of opportunities, it seems as though the 21-year-old has certainly not given up on first-team football at Arsenal and is said to be very keen to make a name for himself at the Emirates. .......Read the full article here
It must have been frustrating for quite a few of the Arsenal players this season, with injuries stopping them really getting up a head of steam, but it must be even worse when you can see your dreams of playing in a World Cup finals in Brazil disappearing over the horizon.
It happened to poor old Theo Walcott, of course, and it looked like he might be joined by his Arsenal and England team mates Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere for a while there. But Arsenal’s two young Englishman look set for Brazil and Jack looks set to start in England’s opening game against Italy, and he believes that Arsene Wenger is a big reason for that. .......Read the full article here
No one would be too surprised if Theo Walcott was a bit downbeat at the minute, after two separate injuries decimated his season with Arsenal and meant that his World Cup hopes with England were wrecked once again. The 25-year old would have been a nailed on for Roy Hodgson’s final team, but he really doers have no luck when it comes to international tournaments. .......Read the full article here
The 25th of March was bad day for Arsenal Football Club and the fans. Coming off the disastrous pasting by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in what was supposed to be a landmark day on Arsene Wenger’s 1000th game, the game on that Tuesday, when a late own goal by Mathieu Flamini gave Swansea a draw and hammered the final nail into the Gunners’ title hopes. And then Paul Scholes went on the attack. .......Read the full article here
It was a sad sign of things to come for Arsenal, when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who had provided the assist for our first goal of the season, was ruled out after just one game and then spent around five months in the treatment room. And if that was disappointing for the team, it was even more so for the young player, who was hoping to have a storming season ahead of the World Cup in Brazil. .......Read the full article here
Arsenal fans are getting extremely used to having most of their top players injured for a large part of the season, and young Jack Wilshere seems to miss out more than most, but it now seems that Arsene Wenger is confident that the England international will be fit and ready to go to Brazil for the World Cup.
Although Wilshere’s last injury occurred while playing for his country, Wenger seems keen to see him return to international duty as soon as possible. The Frenchman said: “He is starting to jog this week. I would think two to three weeks,” Wenger was quoted as saying by British media on Sunday. .......Read the full article here
I am used to seeing stupid and misinformed stuff about Arsenal in the media, but today seemed to hit a new low. A spectacularly blinkered and idiotic article in the Metro lays the blame for the injury Jack Wilshere suffered in the England game against Denmark, not at the feet of Daniel Agger who made the tackle, not at the England physios for failing to discover the injury or bring the midfielder off, but at the feet of the Arsenal player himself. .......Read the full article here
Poor Theo Walcott is set to miss out on playing at the World Cup for the third time after injuring his Anterior Cruciate Ligament in Arsenal’s FA Cup win over Spurs last weekend, and the England manager Roy Hodgson is sad for the player himself as well as England and Arsenal for losing such a crucial player for such a long time.
“I spoke with Theo and just wanted to express my disappointment to him,” Hodgson told TheFA.com.
“It is a blow for him personally of course, and for both Arsenal and England. .......Read the full article here
