In a season when which we thought would be the one where he finally proves his doubters wrong, at a time where his presence is already causing some selection headaches for Arsene Wenger which is an entirely good thing, Jack Wilshere has decided to get injured AGAIN!!!!
I said decided not because it’s something he made up his mind to but because it is something that is becoming a norm. We are all used to the fact that Jack would be injured for most of the season and then make a cameo towards the end and then score the goal of the season.lol
I for one believed that this was the season in which Wilshere would show us the stuff he is made of but sadly he is injured yet again. This was an injury he picked up during training on Saturday before the Community Shield and reports are claiming he would be out for up to 8 weeks.
This is injury number 21 in 6 years for Jack Wilshere and one begins to wonder if the young English man is trying to break the record of Abou Diaby or he is just trying to keep the treatment table void of cobwebs.
Not like Wilshere doesn’t have the while season in front of him barring the supposed 2 months he should be out but when you get injured at the beginning of the season, it sure does a lot to your confidence and it could take a while before you can hit the ground running again.
If for any other reason, this injury has just eased the selection headache that Wenger is having right now especially in that midfield where he is spoilt for choices. As much as he would want Jack to be fit and playing again, I could be sure he is saying ‘Thank God, one less person to worry about picking’ in his mind.
I really want Jack to remain fit ‘cos I believe in his ability and with a little more improvement and staying fit of course, he could live up to his billing as a world class player.
Lets just hope this injury to his left fibula doesn’t take longer than expected and he is back in no time to fight for his place in the team.
Get Well Soon Jack.
