As I said in an earlier post on this website and have said before, I am one of the Arsenal fans that has not lost patience with our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere. I still believe that the 23-year old has just been unlucky with his injury problems and believe that he could still turn out to be the player we thought he would be.
And those who remember his dynamic and devastating early games when he outshone the brightest stars of Pep Guardiola’s amazing Barcelona team and led England to a famous win over Brazil at Wembley why I hope to see Jack back in the red and white of Arsenal very soon, just not as soon as the game against Hull City tomorrow night.
Even if Wilshere is fit to start I do not think that tomorrow is the right time because Steve Bruce’s team are likely to pack the midfield and use the 3-5-2 formation that got them a win over Liverpool this week. And with powerful and tough tackling players like Jake Livermore and Tom Huddlestone in that congested midfield, both of them former spuds, I would fear for Jack picking up another knock.
Hull will probably be flying into tackles and giving the Arsenal players no time except a hard time. Maybe a bit of time as a sub at the end would be good for Jack and then next up for the Gunners is a game against Swansea, whose passing style is a much more suitable game for Jack to start. What do you think Gooners?
