Wilshere Wants To Commit

Wilshere Wants To Commit

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has handed Arsenal a timely boost by revealing that he is on the verge of a new contract with the club. The return of 20 year old Wilshere to fitness has been one of the few bright spots on an indifferent season so far for Arsenal and Jack suggests he'll be sticking around for a while yet.

Yeah, I`m talking to the club and I probably will be ­committing my future to the club in the next couple of weeks. I know the club are going through a bad time, but it`s not a problem for me.

'I think you`ve seen over the past few years the top players have probably thought they don`t see a bright future at Arsenal. But it`s different for them, they were a bit older than me.

"I`m 20, I`ve still got a long way, touch wood, to go in my career.

"Players like Robin are older and maybe he thought 'I haven`t got time any more`. And Cesc wanted to go home to Spain, which was ­understandable

"But, for me, I`m young and there are older players around me, and also younger ­players around me.

"So in the next three or four years, we can challenge for ­everything."

Wilshere suggested that he would also like to captain the club in the future, 'I want to ­captain this club one day," said Wilshere.

"I`ve been here since I was nine. I know the tradition, and I have been in the first team since I was young.'

It's thought that Aaron Ramsey and Kieran Gibbs are also close to new deals and that the club have opened negotiations with Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, as the club seek to secure the futures of their British core.

That's a sound common-sense view from Jack. It's a youth policy for a new phase of squad development - less financial imperative and more structured squad building. Hopefully this time, if the distortions in the game over the last few years are ironed out to some degree, then the investment can reap still greater rewards.

I wonder how fair it is to say that, hopefully, Wenger would be around to mid-wife that era and ensure the rewards come.

If they come calling it would be because he's had a cracking season which will be all the better for us. If nothing has changed in the financial balance between us and City/Chelsea then the outcome could well be the same but a couple of factors suggest that it might not be. Of course you can hold your head in your hands and predict doom and gloom on the basis of what has happened in the past but as long as players like Wilshere aren't doing the same then it doesn't matter too much.

He's off...he won't be able to resist the lure of the big time and the prospect of trophies at bigger clubs. He also won't want to have to deal with humiliating defeats at the likes of Bradford for much longer. So tell us Mr Amos, the fact that Chelsea and City have benefactors is that why you couldn't beat such a lowly side? I've discovered that in my long career, when someone is sinking they always resort to blaming others..

You're a spud HBB. It would be pointless trying to get you to understand anything - which is what makes you a spud. But you've nobody to blame but yourself - and the occasional lasagne chef.
