England's Best Hope

Latest Posts


Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is set to feature in the Europa League as the club rotates players for their clash against Cologne.

Arsene Wenger would have to balance his team in the numerous games that abound for the next three weeks. The England international is reported to be on duty as the north London side get through the early rounds of the Thursday league.

Wilshere could get his first appearance after 13 months for the team. The 25-year old was injured in his loan spell at Bournemouth last term. He opted to remain at the club despite interests from numerous sides. He was reportedly promised games in domestic cups and the Europa League so he remained. However, speculations point that the player might still exit the side when the winter window opens.

A limited number of stars are expected to feature in the group stages of the European tournament. Olivier Giroud, Theo Walcott and Alexis Sanchez would feature as they lead the rest of the players. The number of first team stars should increase as the team makes the knockout stage.

The team would prioritize their meeting against Chelsea this weekend after a few stumbles in the Premier League thus far. (more…)


The career path of Arsenal man Jack Wilshere is not yet clear, especially with the situation at the Emirates.

Due to the injury sustained at Bournemouth where he was on loan last term, he is still in recovery. Additionally, the Gunner star is not slated to travel with the rest of the Arsenal squad for the pre-season tour of Sydney, Shanghai and Beijing.

After the £52 million deal for Alexandre Lacazette, the club gave the French striker the No 9shirt number. The striker is expected to avoid veering off the path of success but the pressure is sure piling before the season begins.

Players like Julio Baptista, Eduardo, Lukas Podolski looked like decent additions but they faltered in the Arsenal shirt. While a case can be made for Laca being a rank better than those players – at that stage – he is still an unproven player in the Premier League. (more…)


Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere faces a bleak future at the Emirates as he returns following the end of his loan deal at Bournemouth.

With Arsene Wenger under serious pressure, the player would have to go on loan elsewhere as the French tactician would prefer a more consistent option.

With the summer transfer window coming, there are reports in Italy that the Gunners would launch a bid for Juventus star Mario Lemina. Wenger is expected to get fresh legs into the team despite last summer additions failing to make their mark.

Wenger is reported to be in the market for a new central midfielder and Lemina fits the profile. The 23-year old has been linked with a move to Manchester United to rejoin Paul Pogba. Lemina is valued around £20 million in the market so the Premier League giant should be able to meet up. Personal wages should not be a problem for the north London side as well. (more…)


Arsenal upturned their setback in Europe against German side Bayern Munich to defeat their FA Cup fifth round opponents Sutton United.

Sutton manager Paul Doswell was scared of Arsene Wenger playing a strong side against his small team ahead of the game.

“Our only chance is if he puts out an Under 23 reserve side out because National League sides can compete against academy players. If we were to get a draw and we could get back to the Emirates Stadium, it would be one of the biggest results in the cup’s history and for the players.

“The best result for the players would be a 0-0. Half of my team support Arsenal, so the chance for them to go to the Emirates and just have a great day out would be their preferred result,” Doswell said.

On the other hand, Wenger was scared of the quality of the pitch they would play in, the enthusiasm of Sutton, seeing how other ‘small’ teams have caused upset against Premier League sides. (more…)


Wilshere is relishing the chance to help Arsenal in the title race when he heads toChelsea with Bournemouth on Boxing Day.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger sent Wilshere to Dean Court in the summer in the hope that the 24-year-old would get some valuable minutes under his belt after several injury-ravaged seasons in north London.

The England star has been praised for his displays under Eddie Howe this campaign, with the Cherries sitting tenth in the Premier League, and he’s clearly full of confidence ahead of the trip to Stamford Bridge.

‘Of course, I want Arsenal to do well so hopefully we can beat them and do Arsenal afavour,’ Wilshere told Sky Sports.

Antonio Conte’s men host Bournemouth off the back of an 11-game winning streak in the English top flight which Wilshere is determined to bring to an end.

The midfielder endeared himself to Arsenal supporters once again this week by proving that he still holds a grudge with the Gunners’ bitter rivals Tottenham. (more…)

Jack Wilshere Happy to Be Out of Comfort Zone at Bournemouth

Jack Wilshere has hit back at critics who have claimed that he has no future at Arsenal.

The midfielder joined Bournemouth on a season-long loan deal in the summer. This has been seen as a major step down in his career given that he has been an England regular whenever he has been fit. Wilshere came through the ranks at Arsenal and is widely regarded as one of the talented England midfielder around. However, his career has been cut short heavily due to injuries and he has not played 90 minutes of league game for a couple of years now.

Some have suggested that Arsene Wenger’s decision to finally let Wilshere leave – even if it is on a loan deal – is a sign that the Frenchman has given up on the England international. Arsenal have been extremely patient with the player through long periods of injuries. Remarkably, the midfielder has featured in less than 15 games in each of the last three seasons. Rather than give up completely on the 24-year-old, Wenger has decided to give him one last opportunity. (more…)
