Players like Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, and Steven Gerrard have recently created history in recent years by making 100 appearances for the national team.
They represented Chelsea, Manchester United, and Liverpool during this period. Arsenal are also a big club in English football and their midfielder Jack Wilshere says that he wants to emulate in the records of these players in the near future. Wilshere still remains a long way away from reaching 100 appearances for England, but he does have a long time left in football at just 22 years of age.
Up until now, the 22-year-old has featured in all the 26 matches for England. He could have certainly made more appearances had it not been for the numerous injury problems but he has suffered recently. Read the rest of this entry »

Arsenal’s midfielder Jack Wilshere shall be missing out the match with Anderlecht in the Champion’s League.
A sickness bug has taken over him and he is not keeping well enough to play. Arsene Wenger, Arsenal’s manager has said that Wilshere was absent only for the second time in this season. It was in the Premier League that Arsenal beat Burnley 3-0 and it had been confirmed about Jack not playing the game. At a pre-match news conference it had been disclosed that the England international player who is 22 years old would not be playing.
They have confirmed and assured that the team will remain the same as the game against Burnley but since Jack is sick, he will not be able to make it to the game. Arsene has said that he has started to see more clearly at the end of the dark tunnel following a raft of injuries this season, despite of Wilshere’s absence. He has been positive through all of this and believes that they are almost at the end of the tunnel and the bad phase was soon going to come to an end. A very integral member of the team Walcott who had had a cruciate ligament injury came back after almost ten months. He had been seen in the Burnley game for the last ten minutes. It is most likely that he will now be a part of the team in the absence of Jack. Everyone is delighted with his comeback. Arsene has also said that he shall be delighted to qualify with two matches remaining. After the late victory they got with Anderlecht in Brussels they have been very satisfied. Both the goals scored in the game had come in the last three minutes of the game. They have learnt a lot from the games and are all ready to show their quality in the game.

Manchester United hit a new low after losing 5-3 against Leicester City during the weekend. The defeat has proven that the 4-0 win over QPR last week was merely a day in the sunshine for Louis van Gaal and has much maligned team. Despite spending more than £ 150 million on players like Angel di Maria and Luke Shaw, Van Gaal has been struggling to set up his team in the best possible manner. After five games in the league campaign, they are actually much worse than David Moyes did last season. One of the final buys of Moyes was Juan Mata and the Spaniard was surprised to be named on the bench against Leicester City.
He had come to the club for £ 37 million only last January, but there have been reports that van Gaal is not entirely happy with him and that he would like to sell him in the upcoming January transfer window. Mata did not help his case after giving the ball away, just a few minutes after he had come on as the substitute for di Maria, for Leicester’s fourth goal of the evening. United looked to have sealed all three points for the second consecutive match after taking a 3-1 lead due to Ander Herrera’s goal in the second half. Mata has now apologised for the poor showing against a newly promoted team.
“I keep thinking about how we lost a game that was under control. I could not imagine a day like this. On our way back to Manchester I was thinking about what had happened and felt as disappointed as all those that came with us to the stadium. Honestly, I feel very sorry that the weekend ended up for our fans in such a sad way,” said the Spaniard on his personal website.

The absolute main obstacle that Jack Wilshere will face in the approaching season is without a glimpse of a doubt is trying to find consistency throughout the season as he has to avoid getting injured and this is an important factor for Wilshere now more than ever considering that Wenger has many alternatives available to him whenever Wilshere underperforms or gets injured.
This recently concluded summer vacations has attracted a series of negative headlines for Jack Wilshere as he was seen smoking on 2 occasions which is something that is certainly not beneficial for the player that wants to avoid having any types of health and physical conditions in this season which is only a few days away from kicking off.
When Wilshere was asked about the smoking incidents the Englishman replied by saying that he is young and people makes mistakes but he wants to avoid doing that all together.
Wilshere said: “The smoking? Of course I regret it. I’ve been seen before doing it. I said then I made a mistake and I have made a mistake again. People make mistakes .I’m young and I’ll learn from it. I realize the consequences it has and the effect on kids growing up. I have kids myself and I don’t want them growing up to think their dad smokes and it’s OK for a footballer to smoke because it’s not. It’s unacceptable and I will accept the consequences and I will move on.”
The head coach of Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has already shown his dissatisfaction towards those incidents involving Wilshere and the Frenchman talked with the player with the hopes of avoiding doing that in the future.
If Jack Wilshere can indeed prevent getting injured and avoid attracting any more negative media headlines or incidents, the Englishman has a real chance of turning into one of the most influential players for Arsenal in this upcoming season.
