Wilshere in the squad for Norwich

Wilshere in the squad for Norwich

Despite Arsene Wenger saying at his early press conference that Jack Wilshere needed one more game before making his comeback, it’s been confirmed that Jack will be in the squad for tomorrow’s game against Norwich.

The England international hasn’t played a first team game since May 2011 and after a number of successful U21/behind-closed-doors games, he’s obviously been declared fit enough to take part.

Earlier, Wenger said, “He needs one more game, maybe Monday night (U21s), then he will be back.”

It’s good news for Arsenal and for Wilshere, and although it would be a stretch to see him start the game, he could well make an appearance from the bench.

Wilshere’s agent said via Twitter, “It’s been two “good news” days in a row. Doesn’t happen very often. Jack travels to Norwich in the #AFC 1st team squad! Delighted.”

Welcome back, Jack!

  2. Would have prefered him to come back for a home game but it’s awesome to have Jack back. Be good to see what he’s like

  3. Great news, I wouldn’t expect to see him play tomorrow, and if he does maybe a 10-15 minute slot if we are winning comfortably. I don’t see the point in putting him through too much in his first game back, another week of training will do him the world of good.

    The Carling Cup game against Reading is an ideal comeback..It’s been a long time coming. Holy shit a midfield trio of Arteta, Wilshere and Cazorla is a knicker wetting thought. It’s got a great balance of creativity, discipline and box to box energy…

  5. Sound track of “Eye of the tiger” should do for jacks home game. Imagine him coming out of the tunnel in the starting xi after such a long time out, then that sound track!!! starts all round the emirates. Welcome back jack!

  6. I’m so hyped for tomorrow’s game now. The legend that is Wilshere is gonna tear all these teams apart. Imagine Wislhere, Cazorla and Arteta in midfield. I don’t give a fuck what anyone says that’s best midfield in the premier league.

  7. I don’t think he’s gonna play..could be arsene’s idea of reintroducing him back to a matchday atmosphere- the pressure etc. That said, its great to have Jack back!

  15. Calm down guys,sure it’s great news to have him back but he will probably only get ten minutes if we are two or three up, been a long wait though and he must be chomping at the bit to play but there will be no shortage of twats waiting to kick him into row z.

  16. While it’s great to have JW back, it’s interesting to see how Ramsey will react cause he must know he’ll be the one to miss out, he has to do all he can to make it as hard as possible for AW to drop him, great to have this competition for places though…COYG….

  17. […] 我们纵然为威尔谢尔的回归 欣喜万分,但温格同样会因此而辗转反侧。从纸面上说,由阿尔特塔、威尔谢尔以及卡索拉组成的中场令人垂涎三尺。现如今西班牙队以及巴塞罗那笑傲江湖,昭告天下,控球才是王道,我们这三名球员组成的中场纵然在这方面无可指摘,但如果这三人同时上场的话,我们的阵容身高是不是就会有些欠缺? […]
