Is Jack Wilshere running out of time?

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.

“That is the aim,” he said last night: . “I have said before I want to go to the Euros and I know that I have to get back into the Arsenal team. I have to persuade the England manager and Arsène Wenger that I should play.

“I felt good. It is nice to be back at Emirates Stadium and play my first game. I know that I’m not there yet, not quite ready to play in the first team but it is another step closer to my fitness.

“You can train as much as you want, but the toughest thing is getting competition ready with the players and this all helps.”

After today’s game, Arsenal have just six Premier League games to play, and Arsene Wenger has already said that he is not inclined to change a winning side, so it is going to be very difficult for Jack Wilshere to get any competitive time on the pitch and prove his fitness to Roy Hodgson. If Arsenal had nothing to play for then I am sure that Wenger would ease Jack back into the team, but Wilshere himself has admitted he is not even ready yet so will the end of the season come too soon for Jack to rove himself?

  1. I pray that jack’s recurring injury situation does not end up, to be another abou diaby episode!

  2. My patience run out with the so called Arsenal BRITISH CORE ( Jack, Aaron, Kieran , Ox and Theo ) from some reasons they have not improved a bit and do not come now and tell me injuries have been a cause as it is just C***. there’s to much flexibility for their flaws which always are rewarded by huge contract extensions whereas some players who deserved are not rewarded for their efforts. The Spuds Core is doing much better and I hate to say it but it is TRUE. i hope the new coach who comes , send some of them on Loan until they can prove ,that they are what it takes. some of our players have been for 10 years and still not living to the expectations required but most of you are happy to keep sticking to them. we need renovation, we need new blood , we need a WC CB ( hummels just to mention ), WC DM and WC ST to be able to compete for the big prize. it will be the biggest miracle ever IF WE WIN IT this year ( we bottled it for not adding in the windows ) but I WON trophies..EPL and fight on UCL not more 4th places and UCL quarters..WE ARE ARSENAL , we deserve BETTER…12 years of pain and counting. IF SPUDS WIN IT..I WILL GO MENTAL…IF LEICESTER WIN IT I will join the WENGER OUT CAMPAIGN. hope Alexis and Ozil remain with us but as they stated only IF CLASS IS ADDED..starting for a COACH.

  3. N19 bus from Woolwich Arsenal via Highbury and terminating at The Emirates. All Change Please!!!
