He has not featured for club or country so far this season, so the Arsenal and England midfielder is understandably keen to make up for lost time when he has fully recovered from his latest injury lay-off, caused by an unlucky tackle in training on the eve of Arsenal's Community Shield win over Chelsea.
When Jack Wilshere was a youngster breaking into the Arsenal team in 2010/11, he was constantly hailed as the future of Arsenal and England, but ever since that first full season (in which Arsene Wenger now says that he overplayed him) Jack has never been uninjured long enough to play hardly half a season.
There has been much discussion over why the Gunners seem to suffer from more long term injuries than any other club in the Premier League, and there have been questions asked of our fitness regimes and and even Arsene Wenger's (or even England's) coaching methods, which teach players the Arsenal way from a very young [.
When Danny Welbeck joined Arsenal 15 months ago it was a bit of a surprise (aren't all Arsenal's transfers surprises?) but we had high hopes of him settling in quickly as he had played over 140 games for Man United and was becoming a regular in the England team. What we didn't expect was for [...]
When Jack Wilshere burst into the Arsenal first team at the tender age of 16, he followed Theo Walcott by being hailed as the "Future of England" with his bulldog attitude and limitless confidence but, like Walcott, his development has been severely hampered by injuries. Sometimes it seems ike he has been at Arsenal for [.
WENGER NEEDS TO GET RID OF INCONSISTENCY! by NO I will make a very controversial statement; Arsenal are inconsistent because of inconsistent players in the first team squad. Can Wenger use the winter window to remove the inconsistency from his squad now that the core of the side has formed itself? This he needs to [.
Arsenal fans know that winning the Premier League is an unbelievably hard thing to do, so despite the Gunners recovering from a shaky start to be level on points with Man City at the top of the table, we are not getting ahead of ourselves. But with 13 places and 11 points between Arsenal and [...]
There was a massive furore when Arsene Wenger used David Ospina in Arsenal's must-win Champions League tie against Olympiakos, and our French manager hinted that our Number 33 may have needed a rest to deflect criticism, but Wenger has no hesitation in putting Cech as the first name on the teamsheet for the Capitol One [.
Most Arsenal fans spent a tortuous summer expecting Arsene Wenger to splash the cash on a new super-striker and another beast of a DM, but our stubborn boss refused to spend a penny except for adding Petr Cech and a bunch of youngsters to the academy. Now in five weeks time we will be entering [...]
Wow I don't think I've ever heard an Arsenal player talk so honestly in an interview as Jack Wilshere does in this recording from AudioBoom. He obviously loves Arsene Wenger and he is prepared to play wherever his manager asks him too, but he has admitted that, in his heart of hearts, he would prefer [.
Just when we were beginning to thing that the terrible luck that has beset Arsenal on the injury front for years was not going to carry on in the present season, Arsene Wenger has given an injury update that consitutes a triple whammy for us. All three of the players involved, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere [.
All Arsenal fans will surely admit that our injury situation so far this season is at least twice as good as at this point in the last campaign, but we still have a few on the sidelines. We have already heard that Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini should be in the squad to face Watford [...]
Can you believe that Jack Wilshere has missed close to 1,000 days of football at Arsenal? If you did, then you know how quickly Wilshere moves from the thick of action to the doctors table. If you didn't, well... you are either Wilshere or his doctor. With the latest injury setback confirmed by the club [.
Is the clock ticking down on Jack Wilshere's Career? by JH At the tender age of just 16 Jack Wilshere made his debut for Arsenal against Blackburn, becoming the youngest ever player to play for us. He followed this up just over a week later, by scoring his first competitive goal for the club vs [...]
Any guesses on what's the top word any Arsenal supporter would associate with Jack Wilshere? Some may say potential, some may say wizard but many would say injury. For someone who's long been touted as the midfielder to hold his own for many years, Wilshere has spent more time off the pitch than on the [.
The international break is now over and all of the Arsenal players that joined up with their respective nations will be heading back to north London, if they are not back already. And the most positive thing to come out of the last 10 days is that not a single one of our stars has [...]
Sanchez, Wilshere and Ox to the rescue? By Galen Everyone is blaming the transfer window for Arsenal's slow start to the season. Yes the window was very disappointing, and what annoys me the most was the fact that we waited for the transfer window to close before announcing Welbeck's injury. You can't tell me that [.
So the Arsenal treatment room may well have been about as busy as Kings Cross station at rush hour over the last few years, but at least Arsene Wenger and the club staff have seen that there must be more to this problem than simple bad luck and they have taken steps to sort the [...]
It has not been a great start to the season for Arsenal, there is no doubt about that. And after all the talk of how important it was for the Gunners not to repeat our start of last season when we let Jose Mourinho´s Chelsea build an unassailable lead before we even got going, it [...]
I know that people will always trot out that famous old football saying about it being a 'nice problem to have' when, like Arsenal right now, a club has a lot of competition for places in a certain area of the pitch. But a problem is a problem and the centre of midfield and who [...]
As usual, the Arsenal fans are left pretty much in the dark about whether there will be any more transfer business completed before the transfer window closes. Arsene Wenger is doing his regular job of denying everything and trying not to give even the merest hint of his intentions. The Frenchman was asked a few [.
Last season it seemed to me that Arsenal had finally come out of the long dark tunnel of bad luck that had been plaguing the club for years. It had seemed that there was some sort of football cure on the Gunners, with bad decisions from referees as well as the busiest injury room in [...]
The last week or so must have been a bit of a rollercoaster ride for the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere. From being about to start in the Community Shield clash against Wembley to picking up an injury that meant he missed the curtain raiser at Wembley was only the start. Then we had [...]
One Gooner's guilty pleasures, confessions and irrational thoughts by JS Dear Gooners This site has been a place full of angst, introspection and gloom in recent weeks. Who the next transfer will be, or even more debilitating for some will there even be a next transfer? Anyone else got Benzema-itus? I thought I would [.
Well that's that then! The 'Benzema to Arsenal' stories have been hogging the headlines for the last month (as they do every summer) but now Arsene Wenger has finally come out and stated that he is more than happy with his current strike-force, and the Benzema rumours are purely media talk. He said in todays [.
There will certainly be a temptation in the mind of Arsene Wenger to include the man that the Arsenal fans voted as the best player of last season in the matchday squad for the opening game of the Premier League. In fact the manager has already suggested, as reported by Arsenal.com, that he might pick [.
I guess we should all be used to Arsene Wenger having absolutely no idea about Arsenal players injuries, as yet again he has got it completely wrong about how long Jack Wilshere will be on the sidelines. Jack looked very fit and lively in the pre-season games, but after being left out of the Chelsea [.
The Premier League season hasn't even begun yet but Arsenal have sustained their first new injury setback. Jack Wilshere took a knock on his ankle in the last training session before the Community Shield win over Chelsea, which could be related to the ankle injury which made him miss five months of last season.
There is some good news for Arsenal fans in the shape of the Chelksea team, with their first choice centre forward Diego Costa missing out and being replaced by Loic Remy, because of a reported hamstring problem. But Arsenal have also been hit by an early injury to the unlucky Jack Wilshere who does not [.
They say that there is no such thing as bad publicity and so perhaps the Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere should just be glad that he is being talked about. At least he has not been forgotten and this is further evidence that the young midfielder is still being seen as one of the [...]
A lot of Arsenal fans and members of the football media in general were talking about our England international midfielder Jack Wilshere at this point last year and suggesting that he was facing a very important and perhaps pivotal season in his football career. Wilshere had hardly featured for England at the World Cup finals [.
Arsenal transfer activity, preview by RPK Can Arsenal finally win the Premier league after more than a decade? For the first time since we left Highbury, I feel like we have the billing of a genuine Premier League title contenders. After winning two FA cups and a Community shield in the last two seasons, the [.
Perhaps it was a case of after the Lord Mayor's show for Arsenal today, although we should also give credit to our German opponents Wolfsburg who made it difficult for the Gunners from the off. Whatever the case, after the stunning six goal showing against Lyon yesterday, Arsenal struggled for the same fluency.
Arsene Wenger has gone with an almost completely different Arsenal starting line-up to the one that took the French club Lyon apart yesterday, with just our club record signing Mesut Ozil keeping his place. The manager must be very happy with the fitness of the German international to play him again so soon and he [.
It was brilliant for us all to watch Arsenal take apart the French Ligue 1 runners up yesterday, continuing the free scoring pre-season preparations with six unanswered goals. But it might not have been quite so enjoyable for the England international midfielder Jack Wilshere. The 23-year old was not even on the subs bench yesterday, [.
I am not trying to tell the Arsenal manager what to do, and I doubt very much whether he would take much notice if I did, but I will go ahead and give Arsene Wenger my thoughts on the matter of which 11 players I think he should pick to start the first of our [...]
Depending on how quickly the Arsenal and Chile star Alexis Sanchez gets back to match fitness and into the swing of the new season, the Gunners will have to manage between one and four games without our best player of last season. And with all the talk of how much our slow start cost us [...]
There is an argument that the biggest thing holding back Arsenal Football Club, after the years of financial hardship finally came to an end that is, has been the injury and fitness situation. So the signs that this is now coming to an end with the help of some new conditioning experts on the back [.
'We are ready for a title charge' by LPKMTY There are plenty of Arsenal fans that do not believe we have enough to mount a credible title challenge this season but I am not one of them. I believe our squad is deep and dynamic enough to last the distance this time. Now clearly, a [...]
TRANSFER BLUES: UNDERSTANDING THE ARSENAL WAY by Uche Hello guys, good day to you all. It doesn't take a genius to decipher that many of us are going nuts about the fact that we are not signing players at the rate that Manchester United and Liverpool are doing. Of course both teams finished below us [.
