Jack Wilshere


No.8

Recommended Posts

This story seems to have grown arms and legs and TBH I’ve paid little attention to it but would you want him

Pros He has a strong liking for our great club which is always a plus for me

Very talented player and would be a class above anything else we have in the middle 

Knows the manager and Defoe well 

Not asking for huge wages and is desperate to play 

Cons. He’s crocked so often. Can we afford to lay out wages on a player with such a poor injury record?

He would have a huge target on his back for some of the thugs we have in the SPFL

Is it a gamble our manager will take. We should know soon enough 

For me it’s a cautious YES as long as he’s on a reasonable basic wage with maybe some bonus worked into that to keep everyone happy

tbh....the wages won't have any influence on me...the club simply can or cannot afford whatever he wants.

but that should never be above actual ability mate.

I would agree with the yes. Very basic wage then maybe a pay as you play incentive?

When fit he is talented no doubt of that.

Liking for the club and has the ability

Pay as you play with obviously a modest basic salary

I can’t see it myself but would welcome it if we get him

Put it this way. I don’t want him going to them !!

Even at 75% he would do a job in that league for you. A risk worth taking in my opinion.

It’s all about if he can stay fit if so he would be a tremendous asset. The hammer throwers in our game would be lining up to do him is a concern though. Purely as a footballer it has to be worth the risk

I remember watching Barry Ferguson and Jack Wilshere face off in the Carling Cup final at Wembley in 2011.

Similar in size and stature and both could find a pass. Ferguson had a feisty side whereas Wilshere was more silky. Both played well in that game.

If Wilshere could bring some of what Barry Ferguson did at Rangers then they would be in business for sure.
