Jack Wilshere bigs up West Ham

Boyhood West Ham fan Jack Wilshere penned some notes in Arsenal’s match programme ahead of the London Derby last Sunday in which he described the Irons as “a big and fantastic club with a some of the best fans in the Premier League.”

Wilshere wrote in the programme: “My dad and all his mates are West Ham fans. Most of them are season ticket holders. When you think of West Ham you think of their supporters and the love and the passion they have.

“They really feel everything. When it’s not going well, they’re down, when things are going well then they’re up. It’s been a little bit up and down for them this season. I don’t think they’ll go down, I think they’ll be all right because they’ve got enough.

“Next year they can really build on it. It’s a fantastic club, a big club, the stadium’s there, the fanbase is massive there. They have some of the best fans in the Premier League, so I just think they need to get the right balance and start getting the right results.

A few years ago, people were talking about them for Europe and I think they can get back to that”

  1. Sign him up……

  2. Would love get him, the only problem is his injury record ….even since he’s been back in the arsenal team he still seems to get injured every other game …on a free maybe worth a punt but it would be a risky one..But he is a slick baller no doubt about that .

  3. One of us, no doubt; worth a punt???

  4. No doubting his quality with the ability to open teams up but as the other comments say,how many games would he realistically play a season.What about another punt on Ravel Morrison?.

  5. We should of took a chance last time he was available he loves West ham and he would come if we offer the right money he is a top player and seems to have got over his injuries as well ..don’t get your hopes up Sullivan will try to loan him and someone else will get him

  6. He has appeared 35 times for Arsenal this season. His record is much better than some think

  7. I would sign him on a free but I would also look at further strengthening that area to in case he suffers a few injuries.I wonder with Wenger leaving would he more inclined to stay or go now
