The young Arsenal star Jack Wilshere has been continually over-hyped since his return to fitness this season, and has been hailed as the saviour of the England team and perhaps the catalyst that could finally win the World Cup for England for the first time in 48 years.
But the talented midfielder has tried to play down the expectations and says that Roy Hodgson’s side needs a whole team of stars to win a trophy and he simply can’t do it on his own. Wilshere said: “I don’t think one player can ever win a World Cup for a nation. .......Read the full article here

Liverpool’s Steven Gerrard is looking forward to playing alongside Arsenal’s very own Jack Wilshere in Wednesday’s friendly game against Brazil, and he firmly believes that the youngster will not only become a star for England but could end up being the best in the world!
“Jack’s got a bit of everything: he can tackle, pass, get up and down the pitch, create a goal or score a goal,” said Gerrard. “He ticks almost every box, and he’s going to get better and better. He’s only 21 and a fantastic talent, and we’re delighted he’s back. He has the potential to become one of the best in the world. I don’t want to put any pressure on him, but having played against him recently and seen him in training, he’s a one-off. He’s a lot better than your normal Premier League midfielder. .......Read the full article here

Arsenal have their captain back, and Thomas Vermaelen is calling for the Gunners to be clinical, as we have in the last two games. If Arsenal can get the elusive consistency they have lacked this season, then we should have no trouble clinching a top four spot.
Walcott< Giroud and Podolski will hope to run the Liverpool defence ragged and continue the great recent form. Wenger has not risked Diaby from the start, but picked Ramsey alongside Jack Wilshere in the middle, with Santi Cazorla back in his usual role behind the three front men.
Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs
Ramsey, Wilshere, Cazorla

It is surely just a matter of time before Jack Wilshere is the captain of Arsenal. Even Thomas Vermaelen probably thinks that Jack should get the job, and he will not feel bad handing over the armband, because Wilshere is already the leader in everything but name. Jack has spoken about it and revealed that he uses the Liverpool and England captain Steven Gerrard as a role model.
“I think that is part and parcel of my game. That’s the type of player I am.
“I like to pick the ball up and run at players, and I suppose drive the team on. It’s not just me. We have Santi Cazorla as well who was excellent on Wednesday night and Francis Coquelin, who came in and did excellently. Abou’s looking sharp too. .......Read the full article here

Jack Wilshere got his first goal of the season for Arsenal last weekend, and would like to score more, obviously, but it is not something that the youngster is overly concerned about. His game is mainly focused in the middle of the park, linking the play left and right and helping the defence as well as the attack.
Wilshere did used to score quite regularly in the youth system, but has never really got going, goal-wise, since being promoted to the first team. In his breakthrough season of 2010-2011, he played 49 games for the Gunners, and scored just twice. He did, however get nine assists and we all know that his impact on the team was fantastic. If Jack could chip in with more goals it would be great and it is something he will try to do by watching how some of the most prolific midfielders get into the right areas. .......Read the full article here

If Arsenal fans were beginning to worry about the gap left in the Gunner’s midfield by the sale of Alex Song to Barcelona, then Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is ready to put their minds at ease. The Turkish international Nuri Sahin from Real Madrid was rumoured to be on the verge of signing a year long loan deal with Arsenal, but is now going to Liverpool so unless Arsene Wenger makes a nother move in to the transfer market before the end of the week, Song’s role will have to be filled from the existing squad. .......Read the full article here
