Will new Wilshere injury spell end of his Arsenal career?

Whether or not the on loan Arsenal and England international midfield star was doing enough to convince Arsene Wenger, or whoever may be the manager of Arsenal at the end of this season, that he deserved to be brought back to the Emirates and given a new contract, we do not know, but we do know that the last thing Jack Wilshere needed was another injury.

What Jack and Arsenal were really looking for this season was for him to rediscover the sort of form that made him one of the most exciting prospects for club and country in many years, but he was only going to do that by staying injury free.

The last five seasons has seen the young Gunner go backwards in all honesty, because a string of injury lay-offs restricted him to just 66 Premier League appearances in five years. We saw the odd flash of the old brilliance, like the two goals that won the EPL goal of the season in successive years, but they were all too few and far between.

Things have been going well for him down at Bournemouth, being a regular starter and a vital player for Eddie Howe, but last night saw the old injury fears rear their ugly head, as an ankle problem saw him hobble off against Man City. Hopefully it will not be that bad, as Metro reports the Bournemouth boss suggesting that it was just a minor knock.

Howe said, ‘Jack is just feeling his ankle. I don’t think there’s a major injury there. He just felt he couldn’t move as freely as he wanted to and had a pain in his ankle, so we took him off.’

We have been here before though, Gooners. I seem to remember that his last lengthy spell on the sidelines began with a supposedly minor ankle problem. Fingers crossed for the lad, of course, because we all want to see a fit and in form Wilshere back on the pitch for Arsenal, but if it is what I fear, could it be the end of him as a Gunner?

    PSG runnin ruff shod over Barca…DANG

  2. RSH says:

    PSG 4-0 Barcelona

    This is what a top team does. Bring their best against the best. If Arsenal can’t get inspired by this tomorrow then players should leave right after. I won’t stand seeing another Chelsea performance.

    1. NY_Gunner says:

      Exactly. We’re playing on their home turf. We gotta go b*lls out and defend in unison…

    2. Fatboy Gooney says:

      Can you honestly see our performance being any better than it has been of late? ?
      I personally can’t see how there will be any improvements to what we have being seeing, especially against Munich.

      1. Juhi McLovin says:

        It will go like this:

        At the beginning it looks like we might have a chance. We will get one great chance and fluff it completely. After this Lewandowski makes it 1-0.

        After half time we will look even worse than in the first half. Bayern counters and makes it 2-0.

        After that Bayern will probably concentrate on defending and if they get lucky, they can just make it 3-0.

        In our home game the pressure is off and we will play like hell and win 2-0. We fall short of course but bow out 3-2 on aggregate and it looks like we had a chance.

      2. RSH says:

        these players get paid millions to kick a ball around. They need to find a damn way improve and not be embarrassing every year.

      How good was Rabiot on midfield. Always linked to Arsenal for the last 2 years. looks like he has found his place and team.

  3. Fatboy Gooney says:

    Surly the loaning out of Jack already suggested that his Gooner days were numbered? ?

    1. NY_Gunner says:

      I’ve always thought. That once they put those pins in his ankle, dude was never gonna be the same afterwards…He’s puttin in some decent shifts at Bournemouth. But only playing once a week. Can’t see him getting back into the AFC starting 11…

  4. NY_Gunner says:

    Barca looked like AFC. Everybody wanting to get forward and only 4/5 guys willing to defend…

    1. RSH says:

      heads all down after the first goal goes in, outfought in every physical battle…

      1. NY_Gunner says:

        And Swiss cheese for a midfield…

    draxler would have looked nice in an arsenal kit, exactly the missing piece

  6. legend Henry says:

    Did u see draxler?
    some Wenger worshipers on this site were talking rubbish about him.Deluded just as Wenger .
    He is doing wonders.
    Finding excuses for Arsenal not to sign top players
    pathetic idiots!!!

  7. Twig says:

    Just wondering if we had got Rabiot instead of Xhaka…

    1. Arturitou says:

      Xhaka hasn’t been bad, he has been good for us, only two red cards which both are really debatable, aren’t a way to judge his performance soo far… But I agree that rabiot would have been awesome.

  8. Lexynal says:

    OT: When are we ever going to play a weak Barcelona. We topped the table and missed them…PSG couldn’t beat us over two legs but they just wiped out Barcelona with the full complement of MSN on the filed. Luck??

    1. Arturitou says:

      psg are better than us

    How long have you been waiting for Wilshere to get his next injury so you can write this?
