Wilshere Warned by UEFA

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has received a warning from UEFA over comments he made on his twitter feed in December, 2011. the 20 year old made some seemingly innocuous comments about teammate Emmanuel Frimpong being "worth a cheeky £10" to open the scoring in Arsenal`s final Champions League group game with Olympiacos.

Wilshere did not play in the match due to injury, but when a Frimpong shot went close in the first half, Wilshere jokingly tweeted, "Frimmy nearly won me some money there!" Players gambling on games is strictly forbidden by UEFA legislation. Wilshere did clarify later that evening that he hadn`t actually placed the bet, "I didn't actually bet on the game. I know we're not allowed to! I was only messing just to be clear.'

Somehow UEFA felt that this required a seven month long investigation (!) and a statement released today said they had written to Wilshere to warn him and remind him of his responsibilities, 'The player has been warned for being in breach of the principles of integrity of matches and competitions. The disciplinary measure was a warning.' The mind boggles as to how this inquiry took 7 months but at least UEFA are putting time and resource into the real issues……………..

I understand though, you don't have anything worth discussing except player departures and other clubs' players misdemeanors, you don't have a winning mentality. My 8 year old nephew has won more than you gunners (shooting blanks)

....and that coming from a man(?) who only began to know the joys of winning ANYTHING, when the Russian benefactor saved the club from the brink of administration. The only thing you can celebrate is the hand-outs you get, really.

Are you american mq? It's just that your banter seems really sadly quite contrived and lacking, terms like go figure soelling misdemeanour without the u, things like that give you away, like you're really trying to unsuccessfully be a part of this whole london rivalry thing from the safety of your white bread wisconsin suburb. Either way you're still a spectacular {vnt son.

Good old UEFA. They can severely reprimand a young player for a bit of banter, yet let clubs with racist fans off with a slap on the wrist. What a load of dick-eds.

Tw*tter performs a brilliant public service. Who'da thunk it? C.W.O.T. ****s Will Out Themselves. All tw*tter users are ****s. Mainly semi-literate narcissistic c***s, but c***s all the same. By the way, has Wilshere ever been snapped with his gob shut, appositely?

you are "history" and will remain so (at this rate) so while you celebrate "what was" we celebrate "what is". Who has lesser problems then, the current loser (past winner) or present winner (past loser)?? :)

Chelsea finished 6th in the table - a very illustrious recent history. The truth is on the pitch and the 5-3 tonking at the Bridge is what resonates from last season.

In your own words, all that is "history" and will remain so; it is in the past, so you are now a "past winner".
