Wilshere’s forced absence to end for Norwich

Wilshere’s forced absence to end for Norwich

With the news of Abou Diaby’s cruciate injury still reverberating, it’s good to know the club are being extremely cautious with another, sadly, injury prone midfielder.

Jack Wilshere has missed Arsenal’s last two games, having been told he’d be left out for his own good. Arsene Wenger today explained that Wilshere wasn’t in any great discomfort, but having reviewed scans it was decided that the England international would be given a period of rest so as not to exacerbate the problem, and admitted it didn’t necessarily go down well.

“He had a difficult moment of course when we told him because he didn’t feel any special pain. But he knows he has to take care of his future. Because he is a very young player, I think he accepts it.

“We will rest him when it is needed. He has regular scans and as soon as we have an alert we will respect it no matter what is at stake.”

Wilshere is expected to miss the next two games, against Reading and West Brom, but all going well should be back for the Norwich game. And while the club are criticised often for the injury problems, credit where it’s due this time around.

  1. Best be as cautious as possible here. Jack’s one of our best, we can’t afford for him to miss 14 months again.

    • I miss seeing Wilsheres gigantic, strong thighs filling those wonderful arsenal shorts as he glides blisfully in that midfield area, the ball at his feet, infront of gooner faithfuls week in week out doing a job.

        He’s like the guy version of the female villain from Goldeneye.

    • Terrible news indeed… Can’t imagine how gutted he’ll be right now…I suggest a cheer or a banner of support from us, The Arsenal Family.. That he isn’t alone and we wishing him the best in whatever path he decides to take.. Such a talent that guy

    • I was reading arsenal articles about Rocky yesterday and they did bring tear to my eyes, even though i never witnessed any live games of his but he sure is a legend a hero and many other things to all gooners out there. I have known about him for years but when a article comes about Rocky you have gotta read them and you know there certainly be a part in them which describes about his departure and you cant help but curse george graham for it.
      While reading it i was thinking would you get a joyful player like him these days,don’t know got no idea.But then thinking about his injury and how it affected his career just took my thoughts to abu who really is a nice guy and who has done so well to look after himself abstaining from alcohol and stuff really suffers from such luck.
      People have criticised him in the last few games he has played, ok it did seem like he was bit more careful than the game needed but can you blame guy to try and not get hurt.A guy who was born to play football and who loves playing it but everytime he tries a little hard to push himself on to the game he gets injured ( fuck you luck). Just takes back you to start of the season where he was wow , his performance where so good everyone said this is his time just to get an injury for trying to shoot at goal. Was he not trying hard , yes he was which made me understand to put positive perspective on his recent performances rather than bad mouthing like some cunts( Exclusive: yes we gooners can be cunts ).

      Now i get it times have changed ,people think we gotta cut back our losses by terminating diabys contract or something similar and putting faith in players these days is idiotic just to Rv peed at the end , but sorry i cant just discard him, its left to the manager to decide , a guy who loves his players more than we do.
      So with reading about Rocky in last few days thinking how the Grove will tribute him , to come across this article is sad and cant think anything negative not even silly jokes get but put all my faith in a player injured while with us to rise up again and play for us.If you finding it hard to be anything but negative about this situation just think about Rockys smile that will out you in a better place.

  2. With diaby out for the season, wilshere struggling for fitness, all this is ligning up well for a……wait, wait a rosicky hamstring tear.

    Sad history I say.

  3. To be honest, and it may seem strange to some people in here, but I`m actually completely shocked with what happened to Diaby. I had total belief he was on his way to make up for lost time, having fully left behind his injury niggles. Until today, I mean, since I`m sure today is the day he himself lost his hope. I hope i`m wrong and overdramatising. Come on son!

  4. He needs to respect the wishes of his frail body and retire from football and be a medic or something. Smh. Can’t imagine how gutted he is but really it reaches a point and everything just seems to tell you it’s your end point.

    The other day he was saying “i’ve learnt to manage my body better” and now all over sudden he’s crocked again. How quickly his situation has changed should make him realise.how bad it is. Get well soon, then retire.

  5. The right decision’s been made here. As important as Jack is to our hopes this season, he’s not important enough to take this sort of risk. I wouldn’t want him to be happy about missing games, but it is for the best.
    It does mean that our midfield will be a bit undermanned for the next couple of games but we should manage and it should present opportunities to the likes of Rosicky and Coquelin.

  6. Give Jack as much rest as is needed please. This Diaby news has choked me big time. Genuine good guy and genuine talent and I fear, this could be the last shot of taking his rightful place at the table of top midfielders taken away from him.

    From what I gather of the guy, he has only ever wanted to succeed for Arsenal and France – and those in the know expected great things from him. I actually fear fr his state of mind and mental health as much as his physical condition right now, because this is a boy who had it all to play for and through no fault of his own has little to nothing left. Bg respect Abou and don’t listen to any of the bullshit!

    Looking to our imediate future, let’s give Jack a breather and hope he does not go the same way. And while we are at it, let’s embrace that Ramsey seems to be getting stronger and will hopefully realise potential.

  7. So, sad about Abou. I think he should consider a change of profession, like becoming a physio or something or maybe move to a less physically demanding league. Its just a shame that such a huge talent is being destroyed by injuries kick-started by that massive cunt, Dan Smith. Wilshere, please take the rest, I personally don’t mind if you don’t get to play this season anymore. We have a lot to play for next season. A chance for Le Coq, Rosicky, Eisfeld, Henderson, Toral, Olsson and the likes. Just win the remaining matches. It doesn’t matter who gets to play. It is the 3 points that count at the end. Laughing at sp*rs is a trophy
