Probably needed as soon as we lost Lanzini. We needed someone who can use a football well.

Welcome Jack. Hope you can stay fit.

Happy with that, he seems to be past his injury issue.

Knowing our luck however he'll relapse :lol:

Very happy about the other 3 signings. Gutted about this one. Never have rated him at all. One of the most overrated players in football. :(

Oh well, perhaps he will prove me wrong.

Obviously a notch above what weve got in terms of ability. A better footballer than Noble and Kouyate, no doubt about that.

Hopefully we're not paying him a fortune. Now stay fit you ****

As long as he can stay fit, stops smoking and treats the game with respect - it should be a good signing.

Plenty to prove.

Just hope we don't have to suffer all this "he's coming home" b*llocks ... its toe curling and embarrassing.

That aside, Welcome Jack.

I've always wanted us to sign an FM Wonderkid! Pity we've got one from FM09 :D

In all seriousness though, if it hadn't been for his injury troubles in recent years we wouldn't of had a chance of signing him. Lets hope there fully behind him as he should be in or approaching his best years. Remember watching his performance against Barca in the champions league all those years ago, ran the show as an 18 year old.

Welcome Jack

Good luck Jack.

I wasn't keen on the thought Wilshere sighing when we were first linked, but the more I've thought about it, the more I like it.

If he can stay fit, he instantly becomes our best midfielder.

He will give his all to prove a lot of people wrong, as well.

Welcome Jack, I am in the middle here, didn't want him, not because of his talent for which he has bundles but because of his fitness. Please prove us wrong and become a star! :crest:

Great signing. If he'd had 2 seasons of consistency like last season I've no doubt he would of made England squad and we probably wouldn't be signing him.

Got a good feeling that not under the spotlight he was at Arsenal will result in a more relaxed player. It's all good.

Welcome Jack :thup:

i honestly don't know what some people see when they watch football.....

Jack Wilshere is an absolutely brilliant footballer, injury prone yes, but a tremendously gifted football player nonetheless

Welcome Jack.
