The downfall of Jack Wilshere, can it get any worse?
From the potential to become an Arsenal legend to running about in a park to maintain fitness, the latest decline of Jack Wilshere’s career has taken a big hit!
As playing time and injuries were impacting him greatly in maintaining a place at the club, Arsenal let him go after ten years at the club from 2008-2018 where he spent the 2010 season and the 2016/17 seasons on loan at Bolton and Bournemouth.
Being widely remembered for his role in the team goal against the win over Norwich at the Emirates back in 2013, a sublime team move ended with Wilshere starting the scoring in what would be a 4-1 win. Having then suffered a number of injuries and setbacks at his time at the club, it was finally time to say goodbye to the boy that joined us at the age of nine back in 2001 with our academy and made his senior debut back in September 2008.
He didn’t have to go far though, making the move from North to East London where he joined up with West Ham and remained there for two years making16 appearances for them before sadly, during the latest transfer window, along with the club, coming to a mutual agreement to release him from his duties after he fell down the pecking order although he was injury free for the last eight months.
This has now left Jack without a club and searching for his next targets. But he hasn’t let it bring him down, instead he has been keeping up his fitness at a local park by training with his organisation NCF Elites.
It is sad that such a potential talent is now being wasted away in the local park, but I am sure the right club will come calling and we will once again see the talent that Jack has at his disposal. Here’s hoping for his sake anyway, Gooners?
