    Not good news even at his young age Wilshere gives the team that spark in midfield. I will hope that no other players get injured before the Jan transfer market opens up and we bring in Hazard

    He’ll come back in January, giving Wenger th excuse of not buying anybody else because Wilshere coming back is ‘just like a new signing’.

    It is bad news for Arsenal fans of course. But for Wilshere it may be a blessing in disguise because it will give him a really long (enforced) break. One thing Wenger IS right about is the danger of burning him out while still very young.
