Jack Wilshere (10)


#1868

Not sure why he is stalling. Hasn’t got much to bargain with.


#1869

Not sure why where offering tbh.

Glad we aren’t acting desperate to keep him. Wilshere being in the squad and praying for his fitness has always held us back from buying another midfielder, and if he does go, will give us long overdue room to buy another CM.


#1871

Seems to be just to say “we tried”, the way the club seem to be blasé about the whole thing is the right message.

Definitely in the interest of all parties to go their separate ways, we don’t need him anymore and that’s been the case for a long time.

It’s all going to end a bit sour with Jack Wilshere. He’ll go to either West Ham or Everton and become a bit of a pantomime villain upon his first return


#1873

With 7 years of patience and wages from the club for virtually no development and minimal contribution, Wilshere should sign the offer as is. We stood by him through injuries, allowed him to go on loan to earn minutes for euros, and are still giving him gametime this season despite him being clearly subpar.

Jack owes a lot to Arsenal and this contract saga really makes it sour for me. Of course it’s within his right to look elsewhere for more money, but as a fan I would rather see him take this package and try to fight for a better deal next year.

I wont be sad if he leaves but hope he finds his legs abroad if he manages to overcome injuries. The only thing I will remember about Jack Wilshere is a lot of talk about passion but not much to back it up. Singing Tottenham is shit on TV means nothing. maybe the #10 shirt will finally find a worthy owner.


#1874

Who cares. He isn’t good enough.

I think the biggest disappointment about Jack Wilshere has been the lack of an all-round game. Sadly he’s been getting muscled off the ball so easily and his defensive awareness is lacking severely. His ball retention and gradual bursts are his best assets but his general central midfield control is really lacking right now compared to the first half of the season. He was unquestionably performing better back then.

The other night he was playing the second half with an injury (which interestingly no one on here has acknowledged - fookin haters), but he should have declared that to the boss and come off at half time. That lack of maturity is not helping him.

The last time he was consistently performing fantastically well was on the right and I’d be willing to give him a chancd there and place Özil more centrally.


#1876

Good move for him IMO. He’ll be reunited with his best mate (should they make Afobe’s loan permanent, which it sounds like they will) and he’ll have bragging rights when Wolves finish higher in the table than us :sunglasses:


#1877

We all know that he is fragile but what I cant get my head round is why he fades so dramatic after 65 minutes or so. Can only think he cant push in training. Either way he hasnt got much left now.


#1878

Well he’s had years of inactivity, ie no running at all and he’s a smoker. It stands to reason he won’t be very fit.

As technically good as he is fitness is everything to a midfielder.

There’s loads of players who looked like stars in the making that never made it because of their lack of fitness
