Wilshere faces further surgery tomorrow

Jack Wilshere faces more surgery tomorrow when he goes under the knife yet again.

West Ham manager David Moyes admitted to reports at Rush Green this afternoon that Wilshere is having hernia surgery tomorrow.

Asked whether he would be out for the remainder of the season the manager said “Some people do hernias and they might have a bit of a quicker recovery time. I understand this is a quicker one.” 

His current groin injury has kept him out since 23rd Oct a total of 97 days and 16 West Ham games.

Before that, he was out for 127 days between December 2018 and April 2019 missing 2o West Ham games after undergoing ankle surgery.

Wilshere signed for the Hammers in July 2018 on a three-year contract said to be worth £100,000 per week, he first became injured in September 2018 missing 77 days and 11 West Hames games with an ankle injury only returning in November 2018 for a short spell before getting injured again.

  1. As much as I liked Jack as a player from afar (pre injuries at Arsenal), I have personally written off his career as a West Ham player.
    Because even if by some Miricle he was fit enough to play, I wouldn’t expect him to play more than three games in a row.
    Somehow, this needs to be brought to an end, for the good of West Ham….. and Jack!

  2. I liked Jack as a player but it’s obvious that he is unable to perform at his previous levels even if he can stay injury free for any length of time. Just pay him off. Ridiculous decision to give such a long contract with his injury record.

  3. The starting team from the FA Cup tie should undergo surgery to have testicles implanted.

    Like JW. If he comes back let’s hope he is healthy.

  4. This whole sorry saga is worse than sick note Carroll at least when he was fit he turned in a shift JW has not performed when he was able to play so the whole episode is one big mistake by Pellegrini & the board for agreeing to sign him on a long contract, let’s hopes Moyes can force Sullivan to agree to a program of recruiting younger & fitter players

  5. I’m sorry – there’s no doubt that he is a quality player, but this can’t go on; why on earth the owners didn’t insist on making it a rolling deal contingent on his fitness and being involved in at least a certain proportion of games is beyond me. I think we have to call time, thank him, wish him well in the future, and let him go.

  6. Good luck tomorrow Jack. My thoughts will be with you. So disappointed that your west ham career has been blighted by injuries like they were at arsenal. Miss you at arsenal Jack. You will always be a gunner in my heart hope to see you back playing soon
