WHAT? Pundit says Wilshere ankle injury is his OWN fault!!

First of all there is more bad news for Arsenal on the injury front. What a shock and surprise that is Gooners!! Arsenal having bad luck with injuries…whatever next? In other news, water is apparently wet and Jose Mourinho is a hypocritical loudmouth.

Anyway, this latest injury setback for Jack Wilshere (and it is a setback no matter what Arsene Wenger says) is only a minor and temporary one but it did keep him out of the Monaco game this week and looks like it will mean that he is not available until next weekend at the earliest. So he will miss the home game against Everton and the trip to face QPR but could be back in the frame for the FA cup clash with Man United.

And that could mean that he is back up against the player who smashed his ankle up in the first place, United´s young Northern Irish defender Paddy McNair. Remember it was a reckless studs up challenge (completely unpunished and not moaned on about endlessly Jose) that saw Arsenal lose the midfielder for months. I say that because if you listen to the wisdom of TV pundit Tony Cascarino from Sky Sports you could be forgiven for thinking it was not McNair´s tackle but Jack himself who was to blame.

Cacarino said, “I think Jack has got injured by being slightly reckless – he has to be careful with the way he tackles.

“He gets his legs in positions where one gets isolated and when he gets tackled he rolls his ankles and it’s happened several times to Jack.

“But hopefully this will be the start of a recovery where we’ll see him play a lot of games back-to-back.”

Really Tony? Really? And just how exactly is Wilshere supposed to play his game and take on players without running the risk of being tackled? But as Wenger has revealed that he has just had two screws removed from his ankle as they were irritating him, we should see him back in action pretty soon and he should be fit and flowing again for the two England international games at the end of March. Unless he does something silly again like allowing another player to kick him…

    OT: Hi guys, Since that defeat against Monaco I haven’t really had the opportunity to express my feelings about mert, so here we go:

    I love it that Mert said ”Southampton was a turning point” about a month ago ( after 5 wins in a row in all comps).. So Mert, was it really a turning point?
    I tell you what, someone with the experience you have should know better. How on earth can you make such verdict after 5 (?!?!?!) wins?? Since that north London Derby we have been absolutely rubbish, except a very poor Middlesbrough. Simply PATHETIC. Lucky win against both leicester at home and that Crystal palace game was embarrassing except for the 3 points.

    I have had enough with that BFG. I really believe his mentality is not right and he doesn’t give a shit. Acting casual when asked about the match with a smile on his face saying ”We have to brave”. How can you possibly be brave if AFC is this rubbish??!!!
    Let’s be brave and rubbish indeed. Then we get this same pathetic performance. And this is our Captain?
    – He doesn’t give a shit
    – He is a like lamppost
    – He makes the wrong decisions

    How can we ever be serious about challenging major titles with such a Captain?

    BTW: How many times are we going to say ” This was our worst perfromance of the season”. I think it started with Dortmund(away), then Stoke and now it’s Monaco.. Not even speaking about our TERRIBLE performances against United/Leicester/Crystal Palace for example

    That’s it for now,
    Cheers

    maybe if wilshere didnt hold on to the ball for about 10 touches too long he wouldnt get involved in such silly last ditch collisions

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he aggravated the injury on one of his nights out.

    To be fair to McNair this is clearly a problem with jack that once he plants his foot his ankle rolls, even on the odd occasion without any contact. He clearly needs a training regime that will strengthen his ankles.

    Opinions divided. What do you think? Thumb up 13 Thumb down 8

    Why is everyone suprised? It always has been Wilsheres fault, everything bad about Arsenal is because of him. Even the injury even if McNair inflicted it was all Jacks fault..

    According to this site,

    Every loss is because of Wilshere.

    Ramsey being average this season so far has all been put in Wilshere.

    Cazorla being a lazy sod and a joke at the start of the season until Late December all Wilsheres fault. Wilshere always trying to do every of our midfielders jobs, which then messes up the team balance. Blah blah.

    Ozil as always being a joke and playing bad was all Wilsheres fault as he was occupying Ozils position, Ozil pushed to the wing.

    The new formation was Wilsheres fault as it was only introduced so that Wilshere could be fitted into the starting 11. All his fault.

    He is even making Sanchez look bad. Lol.Smh

    I am not saying he is world class or any good, but the way 99% of the fans on this site have all convinced themselves that Wilshere is one of the big problems holding us back is unbelievable.

    Smh

    Wilshere plays a risky game. He lures players into tackles and plays the ball, sometimes on purpose, sometimes due to a bad touch. One thing can be said though – you cannot blame him for an injury caused by a bad tackle. You can say he is reckless and increases the chances of injury but the fault ALWAYS lies with the bad tackle. I just rewatched the McNair tackle on this basis and actually Wilshere is totally not at fault. McNair makes a bad tackle, badly timed, where he leaves the floor and uses force, striking the vulnerable spot just above the ankle. Not purposeful, not a red card, but certainly a dangerous tackle and poor Jacky with his bad ankles stands no chance of not getting injured.

    Pundits really do suck at being objective – I know I do as well – but when it’s a bad tackle it’s a bad tackle. Don’t just hate on a player cos he plays a style you don’t like.

    Goonster, when is the last time you saw Wilshere lose the ball, stay on his feet, sprint back to goal side of the ball and defend? I have never seen it. The rare occasion where he doesn’t flop down, raise his hand, look at the ref, and then take forever to get up and fix his socks, he commits a rash foul generally for a card.
    Actually Ozil is the same in this respect except he never ever gets up.
    Regardless of why Wilshere was injured, he and Ozil’s unwillingness to hustle back on defense are a huge liability for the team.
    That said, I think we need two defensive midfielders that we could deploy when teams play on the counter against us to slow their attacks. This would bring stability to the side.

      I’d say Jack stays on his feet when he loses the ball stupidly and does not feel he’s been fouled. He goes down easy a lot, but if he makes a mistake, he definitely fights back after that ball because he gets annoyed at himself. He’s not great defensively but he’s tenacious. Wouldn’t lump that style with Ozil at all.

    Not to be malicious and mean I hope he does recover fully, but as far as this season is concerned, I want him to stay out of the team shit until the end.
    We don’t need him and even if he was around, he will just pull us down.
    He is the worse midfielder we have, so he is useless and has been for a long time.
    Only Wenger sees “some kind” of qualities (that is why he gave the “key” of the team and we had so many bad results… Another Arsene “the deluded fool” Wenger move… Fake manager!)

    We have more important businesses to talk about and take care of than worry about Jack “I don’t give a f*ck” Wilshere.

    Be fair, the pundit is right, Jack does play in a way that sets him up for injury.
    His famous ‘charge at walls of defenders’ tactic and his ‘stretch for a lost ball’ move are just plain stupid.

    No loss to the team anyway, we win more games when he doesn’t play hogging the ball and giving it away.

    Early promise that failed to happen, seriously what other top 6 team would he be a starter at?
    Mid table player, sell him.
