Arsenal youngster Alex Iwobihas named Jack Wilshere as his inspiration despite the England midfielder unable to feature regularly for his club and country.
Wilshere was regarded as the biggest England prospect a few years ago. Due to unspecified reasons, the player has been going from one injury to another even before the age of 25. It has limited him to a handful of appearances the last two years. In fact, he is yet to appear for Arsenal for England in the 2015-16 season. However, his talent is apparent for everyone to see and the same seems to have applied forIwobi.
Wilshere is known for his skill move called as the no-touch turn.Iwobi says that many of the youth players in the Arsenal squad have named this skill after Wilshere. The 24-year-old recently claimed that he is once again fit enough to represent the starting line-up. However, it remains to be seen as manager Arsene Wenger will consider picking him for the remaining three matches of the season. Wenger recently called upon England manager Roy Hodgson to take things with Wilshere slowly. Even then, it is expected that the midfielder will once again miss out on a major tournament. (more…)
When you’re the manager of a football team, you know how hard it is to properly motivate your players and how difficult it can be to keep the ball rolling. Not only that, but you have to worry about people snatching your good players up, you have to constantly come up with game winning plays and every single one of your players has a personal life that comes into play as well.
This winter, the Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has struggled to prove that he has what it takes. This sent him scrambling back to the drawing board to figure out what went wrong and how he can improve for the next season. However, all doesn’t seem lost as they scored a 2-0 win over Everton and with this win, Wenger believes he has found a formula for success.
It’s not all been Plain Sailing – one of the biggest mistakes Arsenal made this season was not signing a single outfield player. Arsenal has been coming up short in that regard, so this probably shouldn’t be a mistake that’s made again if Wenger wants to retain his successful track record. His original plans have been completely ripped to shreds and Wenger knows that there’s room for improvement. (more…)
Arsenal’s injury curse continues rolling on as many of Arsene Wenger’s key players have been suffering from injury spells including: Danny Welbeck, Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta, Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere, are some of the more notable players of Arsenal who have recently suffered injuries.
Jack Wilshere has not managed to play a single minute of the Premier League for Arsenal in this season due to a broken fibula which he sustained back in September of 2015 and this forced the player to undergo a surgery. When the surgery was over, the medical staff of Arsenal stated that Wilshere would be out of action for 3 months but it has now been revealed that the English player will stay even longer away from the pitch.
When Arsene Wenger was asked about the condition of Wilshere, the French manager replied by saying: “If you ask me if he will be fit before the end of December, no chance’’.
Wilshere is now expected to make a return to the pitch in February of 2016 but this date could be extended even further if the Englishman receives other setbacks. (more…)
It has been more injury headache this season for Jack Wilshere, as the midfielder has been able to make only a substitute appearance in the FA Cup so far.
The England international had huge hopes when he broke into the scene, but his injury problems are starting to him of a great career. Wilshere has revealed that he is starting to get his fitness levels back just in time for the Christmas period. Even though he is now capable of playing games, the 23-year-old wants to take it slowly for the first few months. This is likely to be the opinion of manager Arsene Wenger as well.
In the past, Wenger has been critical of the England national team calling up Wilshere when the player could have done with some rest. The 23-year-old suffered a fractured fibula a few months ago. Speaking to the club’s official site, he has admitted the tough time that he has had with injuries in the last 36 months. Arsenal have not struggled in his absence and this could leave him fighting for a first-team spot when he does return eventually. Even then, he has not given up hope of playing at the Euro 2016. Wilshere has been in the sidelines along with players like Danny Welbeck and Tomas Rosicky. (more…)
Hull City manager Steve Bruce has tried to pacify the disgruntled supporters of the club by stating that new signings will come to the KC stadium in the next few weeks.
Following their relegation to the Championship, a mass exodus of players was expected at the club. The club has already received £ 15 million in the last few days following the sale of players like James Chester and Robbie Brady. It is expected that the club will reinvest a significant portion of this sum in improving the squad. Hull City will struggle to attract Premier League players to the club, but they can hope to bring in a few top-level Championship names.
After all, it is promotion to the Premier league that counts at the moment. Since the parachute payments will not be lasting for more than a couple of years, a return to the top division as soon as possible is of paramount importance. Bruce has confirmed that the club are in discussions with two players, who could potentially be signing with Hull City sooner rather than later. However, he does not want to give away any details in order to prevent other clubs from snatching their prize. City’s season starts with a game against Huddersfield Town on August 8. (more…)
On May 30, Arsenal locked horns with Aston Villa in the finals of the FA Cup and the team of Arsene Wenger came out on top with the victory as they claimed a 4-0 triumph in London at the Wembley Stadium.
Jack Wilshere entered the pitch at the 77th minute as he replaced Theo Walcott and even though the English player spent less than 20 minutes on the pitch, he still was insanely happy in helping Arsenal secure their 12th FA Cup.
The players of Arsenal later went on celebrating their title win by going to the streets in a parade filled with thousands of supporters of the club however, one of those players crossed the line during this joyous occasion and it was Jack Wilshere as the Englishman has been sanctioned due to his misconduct during this event.
Jack Wilshere was on top of a bus along with his teammates and then he picked up the microphone and asked the gathered supporters: “We’ve got one question. And one question only.
“What do we think of Tottenham? Shit! What do you think of shit? Tottenham! Thank you. He then joined in as the crowd sang: “We hate Tottenham and we hate Tottenham…we are the Tottenham haters.” (more…)
Arsene Wenger has dismissed suggestions that the club will be looking to sign Raheem Sterling from Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
The 20-year-old has been heavily linked with the gunners in the last few weeks. The recent statements from the two parties also did not help matters either. However, Wenger feels thatSterling would be a signing of no use to Arsenal at the moment since they are already extremely strong in that position.Sterling is capable of playing across the front – even as a striker – and he uses his blistering pace to great advantage.
Sterling said before the 4-1 defeat against Arsenal that he was extremely flattered to be linked with the North London outfit. It has been suggested that these comments just before the match did not help preparations and Liverpool suffered as a result of it. Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers refused to criticise the 20-year-old. Instead, he looked at the positives and it wasSterling won the penalty from which Liverpool scored the only goal of the evening. Wenger is now in a strong position after having almost secured Champions League qualification for next season as a result of this victory. It pushes them into second spot ahead of Manchester City.
