I'm Not Alright Jack-Wilshere To Go!

There was a time when Manuel Pellegrini used to do his obligatory pre-match presser for the Barclays Premier League with hopeful references as to when one of his highest earners would be fit enough to play, Pellegrini has gone now but the player in question is still at the club, drawing an enormous salary and will be beginning the third and final year of his lucrative contract next summer and is still injured!

Step, or limp forward someone who was once one of England's brightest prospects, Jack Wilshere. Jack's injury ravaged career makes Andy Carroll look like a regular marathon participant, that is of the running variety, and not the peanut candy bar of the same name, Hammers' main share holder and much disliked co-owner David Sullivan was aghast when Pellegrini handed Wilshere a three year £5 Million a year contract. Sullivan insisted on only a one year deal, but was over ruled by Mario Husillos, the then head of recruitment, the 'Huse' also signed Roberto Jiminez Gago, a signing that 'did' for Pellegrini as well as Husillos!

Jack Wilshere is the exact polar opposite of the type of player David Moyes wants, and it seems that a summer move or even the cancellation of his contract is inevitable given his appalling injury record. Some might say look at the huge amount of money he has cost, what if we release him and he goes on to score freely and be without injury for another team? Others would then refer to what has happened to that other massive drain of resources, Andy Carroll, since he left the club, as they say, a leopard cannot change it's spots and dear Andy has, as expected managed just a handful of appearances for Newcastle.

Fact is Jack Wilshere 'ain't ever gonna' get better, if he can be moved on without further cost at the end of the season it would be better for all parties, and perhaps Jack may have to take the unfortunate decision to retire, in a similar way to Dean Ashton. It wasn't that the mind wasn't willing, it's just that the body couldn't comply, sad but true.

At least Jack will have more than a few quid in retirement and he will be wished well by everyone, but isn't it about time there was a West Ham United squad that wasn't being sucked dry by expensive long term injury injury prone players? Thanks Jack but no thanks, it's time to move on, David Moyes as much as confirmed that in his summing upof how things are within the squad. - Asst Ed

Jokes aside, its a massive shame, was a great potential and being a West Ham supporter I am sure he would have loved to give something to the club :o(
