I don't think Wilshere's talent is debatable, the boy is class, its whether he can stay fit for a sustained period of time and not fall into the Carroll category of fitness. I saw him play Atheltico Madrid at the Emirates in a preseason friendly tournament and he stood out a country mile from everyone else....I'm pretty sure he was 17 at the time. If we can keep him fit, we'll have a real talent in the team, someone that can dictate the game.

I think he is about our level to be blunt, that's why he is now here. I think he's a bit of a dick but he's now our dick, as long as he can stay fit, he will be an asset and popular. On the flip side judging by his past injury record and ours, he will play 10 games a season while earning 5 million a year.

First bollock dropped by Pella then?
At least he'll be company for Big Andy in the treatment room. :lol:

Welcome Jack, long may you serve the Claret and Blue.

Arsenal messed up his rehab several times, probably because he was such an important player to them, they wanted him back too quickly. Wenger even admitted as much publicly. Stress fractures need proper time to heal.

It's likely that Jack has a much better understanding of his body and what he can do with it nowadays. He was exactly the kind of player that was in danger of over-training in the past. He's a player that should train less, or at least with less intensity, and save it for the games, especially mid-season. He should do more cross-training and gym work to keep his muscle strength in that lower leg strong. Hopefully his diet has also been properly supplemented in recent years, with vitamin D especially, to keep up bone density.

Pretty sure that he'll have had an MRI and/or a CT scan as part of his medical and the staff will have an excellent idea about the state of the bones in his foot at the moment. After a year of playing without re-occurrence, it's quite likely that they've got on top of the problem, so it's about training management going forward.

He'll be prone to injuries just like any other player though, and in that, we just have to keep fingers crossed.

Absolutely superb signing :crest:

An absolute quality signing if he can stay fit. Great on the ball, free transfer and only 26.

If he isn't then it'll be nice for Andy Carroll to have a drinking partner.

Wilshere takes the vacant #19 shirt, as previously worn by the likes of Ian Pearce, Adam Nowland, Darren Powell, James Collins (x2) and Freddie Sears.

Very pleased with this deal. Let’s hope we can get 25-30 games a season from him and we will have a great asset to the squad!

The London Stadium seemed like just another football club but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, and so were those that did the playing
In other clubs the average number of the injured players was 6
At West Ham it was 19
In-in-in West Ham it was 19, 19

How can they publish the lot when there are 15 more coming in and 12 leaving?
