Just because he rejected the offer of a summer transfer to Arsenal I am not particularly cheesed off with the Leicester City and England star Jamie Vardy, and I do not blame him for the awful tournament disaster that the three lions have forced us long suffering England fans to endure once more at Euro 2016.
Because of the usual and ongoing injury problems in the Arsenal camp, the England squad at Euro 2016 has way fewer Gunners in it than it would normally have had, so Kieran Gibbs, Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are all having to watch the tournament from the comfort of their sofas rather than hoping to help the three lions out on the pitch.
…. and concentrate on England!
Jamie Vardy was instructed to make up his mind about his transfer to Arsenal before the England team flew out for the Euros yesterday, but the deadline passed with nothing to show for it but a changed Twitter profile picture that seemed to indicate that the striker would be staying at Leicester.
Just about all the talk among Arsenal fans right now has got just one topic, the reported transfer bid for the Leicester City and England international star Jamie Vardy. There is still the unexpected boost of the Gunners finishing above Tottenham and other incidental things to occupy our thoughts, but I reckon it must be about 99 percent Vardy right now.
The Arsenal legend Thierry Henry is well aware of Jack Wilshere’s latent talent as a fiery midfielder, but he is worried that his long absence from the game through injury means that he will not be ready to set Europe on fire in France next month, as a lack of competitive football may be his undoing.
Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere started England’s 2-1 win over Turkey but only played an hour before being replaced by Jordan Henderson. He admitted that he still some way from being match fit and is hoping to come through a whole game unscathed to prove he should make the final 23-man squad for the Euros.
The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has not played even one competitive game this season after he was cruelly injured the day before the Gunners played Chelsea in the Community Shield, but he is now finally getting back to fitness and played an hour of an U21 match last night. Although he may be too late to have an effect on Arsenal’s title race, he is still keen to get ready to play in the Euros with England.
It might sound wrong to say that the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere will make an early return to the Arsenal side, because when he suffered that training ground accident and broke his foot just before the start of the current campaign we did not expect him to be out of action for the whole season.
