Will Jack Wilshere find another club?

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?

Was Jack Wilshere England’s Missing Piece?

Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has admitted the fact that Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere’s absence was vital for England – who saw themselves knocked out by an Italy which the manager didn’t see as favorites.

Jack has been out for the whole season, and it seems that the Gunner will be back in due time for the start of next season, but Redknapp seems to think that he was the missing key from England’s Euro squad.

‘It was almost complete dominance, and to be fair, I didn’t see that coming. I didn’t particularly rate this Italy side.’

‘Don’t blame Roy Hodgson though, he did the best he could at Euro 2012 with limited time. We were hard to beat and well organised, but hopefully now he can change the way England play and that goes right back to the youth teams,’

‘It’s over to Roy now. He has four years to stamp his style on the national team and set-up.

‘And maybe with Wilshere to the fore and a few of the old guard around him he can do it.’

Arsene Wenger’s key element is about to return to the pitch soon, and with new additions like Podolski and Giroud, the Gunners will certainly look amazing next season.

Injury News Update. Wilshere Coming Back Soon?

Arsene Wenger keeps receiving good injury news lately, and it seems that Arsenal is close to recovering perhaps the most important player in the team except for Robin Van Persie as team playmaker Jack Wilshere’s injury is progressing brilliantly.

Despite having to delay his expected comeback, which was by the start of February, due to another stress fracture suffered at the same ankle, Jack is now on the road to recovery and he wants to be back in maximum 6 weeks in full swing for Arsenal.

Returning in 6 weeks means he will have enough time at his disposal to bounce back in the form which consecrated him and get the attention of whoever is going to train the English National squad at the time.

Although he still has quite some time to prove his worth, Wilshere still has to worry about being good enough to be called-up to the EURO after excellent performances by Parker and Lampard and after the return to fitness of Liverpool skipper Gerrard.

Whether he’ll be in the starting line-up at the EURO or not, Wilshere has to get fit as quickly as possible to help Arsenal keep hold of the Champions League spot they’re currently placed on.

Wilshere Huge Setback Confirmed. What Will Arsenal Do For The Rest Of The Season?

Arsenal’s official website confirmed that Gunner star Jack Wilshere will still be out for now and that he suffered somewhat of a big stepback.

According to the website, Jack is now suffering from another stress fracture and is due to be sidelined, but won’t be out for the rest of the season as previously rumoured.

“The club can confirm Jack Wilshere has a small stress fracture to his right foot, however it is not accurate to state he has been ruled out for the remainder of the season,” read a statement released on the club’s official website.

“The injury is in a different area to his previous surgery, and it will be reassessed in around two weeks’ time by our medical team and medical experts who have worked together throughout Jack’s recovery.

“This is a recognised complication of a complex rehabilitation process and, of critical importance, Jack’s initial injury is recovering well.”

Wenger is probably satisfied by now that he managed to transfer young Eisfeld just before the transfer window shut, but the bad thing about the wonderkid is that he will need quite a while to adjust to Premiership’s pace, so he won’t be available for a while now.

Wenger Says Jack Wilshere’s Injury is “Better Than Expected”

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger is hopeful that Jack Wilshere’s situation is not a harsh one, declaring that it’s already better than expected, and that the attacking midfielder might not have such a big setback as Arsenal’s medical staff first thought.

Following the win against Villa Wenger spoke about Wilshere’s situation. The youngster was in the stands watching the match and seemed delighted of the turnaround by the Gunners.

“We have no real news yet. The first news we have had is better than expected. He is not in a boot, but I don’t know more,” said the Arsenal boss.

“His morale looks quite good and I hope it will only be a short setback. There will be more tests this week.”

Wenger added: “I do not know yet when he will start training. I would not like to make any mistake in my statement, because I did not speak to the medical people today.”

Arsenal needs Wilshere to come back more than ever with Wenger still without enough midfielders. Although he attempted to move on the transfer market, according to him there were no good available players.

Jack Wilshere Injury News Update – Things Are Not So Grim

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger declared that Wilshere’s season with the Gunners is not over, despite the setback suffered by the young midfielder.

According to the Frenchman, Jack can still be back in time to play with England at the EURO’s, but not as soon as February. The manager thinks it will take at least another 6 weeks until he’ll be ready to play again.

“I feel for him and, of course, he wants to be in the big tournaments,” said Wenger. “I believe as well, he wants to play for Arsenal. He grew up here.

“Who would want to do that (write off his season)? I don’t want to and he doesn’t want to. But there is no reason either, if he is fit. If we have good news and he can move on, why should we do it?

“I am really disappointed for him as well, because he is a football animal. I am so sad that, at that age, you have to be out for such a long time with not any obvious reason.

“If you had have told me that Jack would not have played one game by February I would have said, ‘That’s impossible.'”

It’s impossible to play at the end of February,” added the Frenchman. “Even if we have some good news, I would say that’s impossible.

“From day one, when you are completely fit to practice again, to be match fit you count at least six weeks.

“A stress fracture is a stress fracture. The repetition of the impact on the ankle was too much. They tell me that 70 per cent of players between 17 and 20 have stress fractures.

“We push them hard. You want them to be completely at the top when they come back because the intensity of the game is so high that a guy who is not tuned in completely cannot come in and perform.

“The physical requests are so high so the rehab is much harder than when I played certainly.”

Wilshere declared on his personal Twitter account:

“It is true I have had a set back I can’t tell you how long I have been set back because I don’t know! I am very annoyed but will stay strong.”

It’s a shame that a player as good as Wilshere has to go through this, but if he’s going to come back at the beginning of March he still has time to both help the club and return to full form so he can be called up at the national squad for the Euros.

Arsenal’s Wilshere Accused Of Betting On The Olympiakos Match

Arsenal’s injured midfielder Jack Wilshere is under heat after he supposedly placed a bet on the Gunner’s clear defeat against Olympiakos Piraeus in the Champions League group stage.

Wilshere posted before the game on his Twitter page that he would risk a wager on Frimpong to score

‘Champions league tonight come on the Arsenal! @Frimpong26AFC 1st goal is 150-1… worth a cheeky £10 right?’

After the midfielder nearly missed the target Jack Tweeted again:

‘Frimmy nearly won me some money there!’

An UEFA spokesperson reacted to this just to remind Jack which are UEFA’s regulations:

‘All persons bound by UEFA’s rules must refrain from any behaviour that could damage the integrity of matches and competitions.

‘A breach of these principles is committed by anyone who participates directly or indirectly in betting or who has a financial interest in such activities.’

And after that Wilshere defended himself Tweeting:

‘I didn’t actually bet on the game. I know we’re not allowed to! I was only messing #justtobeclear’

If UEFA will investigate this Wilshere risks a big suspension if he is found guilty of placing a bet on the Olympiakos match.

Wenger – Wilshere will be back from injury soon hopefully

Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger spoke about England’s chances against France in the EURO 2012 group and also underlined the fact that the Lions need as much help they can get and that means having most of the players available.

The Frenchman also underlined the importance of Jack Wilshere and the fact that even if he gets back in form nobody can promise he’ll be good enough to go at the European with England.

“If all the players are available it is difficult to predict,” he added. “England have a disadvantage as they do not have [Wayne] Rooney, who is not only a good player but gives confidence in the dressing room.”

“Will [Jack] Wilshere be back? Hopefully. But no one has enough authority to predict a super favourite.”

Rooney’s absence could prove vital, but Wilshere will also be a very important piece of the puzzle if he manages to get back in the form which consecrated him. By then he will be 20 and he will have a lot to offer, and other Gunners like Walcott or even Chamberlain might bring an extraordinary aid to England’s success.

Jack Wilshere picks on Tottenham’s fans

Arsenal’s injured midfielder Jack Wilshere seems so bored about not being able to play and give Wenger a helping hand that he started to pick on Tottenham’s fans on Twitter. The 19-year-old placed a £3000 bet with Spurs’ supporters that Arsenal will finish above the White Hart Lane side.

“All Spurs fans buzzing that they are ahead of us in the league (for once). It’s a marathon, not a sprint!”, said Wilshere

“I tell you what at the end of the season if Spurs finish above Arsenal I will give £3000 to charity.”

“If Arsenal finish above Spurs every Spurs fan that follows me must send me a pound each and I will give it to @Jack_Marshall_ charity!”

“Do we have a deal THFC fans!?”

I think that what Wilshere really needs is not a bet with some other team’s fans, but something that can keep him busy and away from Twitter for a while. Sure, Arsenal has big odds of finishing on top of Spurs this season but that’s not the point. Why should Jack care about all that and why should he counter Tottenham’s fans like that? They know they won’t be above the Gunners in the league anyhow, so why bother I ask?
