Wilshere Back And Close To His Best

The injury to Aaron Ramsey has given Jack Wilshere an opportunity to operate in a more reserved role. Against Fulham, he showed that he's grabbing it with both hands...

I can understand some of the criticism but it should be remembered this is his longest spell of prolonged playing with out injury for a long time. With each game his confidence has improved. Yeah, he has been erratic and his passing a bit un-reliable at times but most of thet has come from trying too hard to make something happen and lackign a bit of composure. The more he plays the more he will get back to the form when he stared against Barca.

So because he has played well against Villa and Fulham, both very poor sides, he is back to his best? (which is only one really notable game against Barcelona) Forgive me while I await a series of performances against some top half sides.

He was just a frustrating player to watch, you could see that he had the talent but seemed a little too risk averse. He would keep things ticking along without really imposing himself fully on the match. He does now seem like he has the confidence and license to have a little more freedom and it shows. His natural ability seems to be winning against his tactical discipline and he's a much better player for it. I think a few injuries did him the world of good mentally as he seems a more balanced person knowing that it could all disappear in an instant. Maybe he's just a young player who has had the dips in form and he's now just the player he was/is.

It's the old Gerrard Lampard conundrum all over again!

Wilshere is also a much better player when he relaxes. In the Gooner fanzine yesterday there was an interview with Paddy Barclay who said, "Sometimes he looks like he wants to fight the whole world and then he looks ordinary." Basically, if we go behind or things aren't quite going our way, he can sometimes try to do too much. That will iron itself out with experience and maturity. He's certainly in very good form now.

This is what Arsenal have needed for years. Now they have a number of players who can take turns in leading the team and winning games. Maybe the crazies are right, they relied too much on Cesc or RVP and are better off without them

"The arrival of Mesut Ozil, alongside the excellence of Santi Cazorla and the necessity for the pace provided by Theo Walcott, created a danger that Wilshere could even find his first-team place under threat." Just confirming the excellent Santi Cazorla is that guy from the top ten disappointing players list for this season. Hashtag twogoals. Hashtag morethanbegovic.

Wilshere's form has been fantastic but I personally think his best performance this season came against Cardiff, and he was firmly playing in the No. 10. Personally, I think he's is equally comfortable in both. He was fantastic today, mind.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win


s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
