Nasri’s Break Could Be Wilshere’s Lucky Break
The terrible news that Nasri broke his leg has once again left Arsenal fans shell shocked. How many more injuries to key players does one club deserve? Rosicky is returning after 18 months out injured, whilst Eduardo is once again out for two months, and last season we lost Walcott, Fabregas and Adebayor for long spells.
The loss of Nasri is a hard one to take, but this could be the opportunity that another youngster has been looking for. The player in question is Jack Wilshere.
Jack Wilshere came to prominence towards the end of the 2007/08 season, with some reports that he might even make an appearance for the first team. In the end young Wilshere went out to Austria and was impressive in the pre-season matches. Wilshere got several opportunities last season and was regularly involved with the first team.
As with most youngsters he was unable to sustain his form and towards the end of the season he drifted back to playing for the reserves and was a key member of the all conquering FA Youth Cup winning team.
Once again Arsene has taken Wilshere with the first team and injuries to Eduardo and Nasri, the opportunity is there for Wilshere to show everyone what a great talent he is. What you always get with youth is that they play with no inhibitions and Wilshere is no different. He is confident in his own ability and will not be overawed in having to play in the Premier League.
Given the opportunity we will all realise what a great talent Wilshere is and just as an injury to Clichy gave Gibbs the opportunity to show Arsenal fans that we have an able deputy to our number one left-back, Wilshere will show us that we a player who is ready for first team football lat such a young age.
