Arsenal confirm Wilshere surgery will sideline him for months

Jack Wilshere is facing a lengthy lay-off after the club announced he needs surgery on his troublesome ankle. The England international has not featured for the Gunners since limping out of the Emirates Cup in August and will be out for several more months after he goes under the knife.

Eager to stress that nobody is to blame for Wilshere’s failure to recover naturally, a statement on Arsenal.com reads:

“Jack Wilshere will undergo surgery on his right ankle on Monday morning.

“Wilshere has recently been wearing a protective boot aimed at allowing a stress fracture of the ankle time to heal naturally and avoid surgery.

“However, scans this week have revealed that the fracture has not responded positively during this period.

“Throughout Jack’s injury, the Club has been guided by the continuous advice of several world-renowned specialists. The information attained this week has led to the conclusion that surgery is now required to gain an optimal response.

“Wilshere is now expected to be out for a period of months. Following surgery these timescales will become more specific.

“A Club spokesman said: ‘We have given Jack time to heal naturally which is important wherever possible with a young player. The latest scans show surgery is needed. Everyone at the Club wishes Jack a speedy recovery.'”

Updating supporters on Twitter about the operation and his expectations of a swift recovery, Wilshere said:

“Been in a boot for a month and the bone is not responding. I will have surgery on my right ankle on monday with the two best surgeons around.

“Hopefully I will return to action around christmas time. I am in good hands! thanks for your support everyone!”

Now before you all go mental in the comments section, try and take a deep breath and collect your thoughts.

Can anybody please tell me when us Arsenal fans can expect some good news again, 2011 has been one disaster followed by another, is this some sort of karma for the invincibles season?

Dammit, now I have to call Santa to fill in for Jack.

You gotta f$%kin laugh,so funny it ‘s…about right for Arsenal. Gooners strap yourselfs in for a long hard season.AFFA!!!!

It’s no shock to me I have to say. See you next year Jack.

Truegooner

Christmas my ass. He’s done for the six months if not the season. How would surgery help a broken bone? He must be really screwed. If Diaby were healthier last year or we had better midfielders, Wilshere would not have had to play so much as an 18 yr old.

Kevin

Sounds like an Open reduction – internal fixation. they open the skin and reset the break in the bone so it heals properly in the right place

Anton

So it’s been Diaby (countless), Rosicky, Ramsey, Van Persie (numerous), Nasri (cunt), Fabregas, Clichy, Vermaelen, – that have been out with serious long term injuries in the last 5-6 years at Arsenal, not counting the niggly injuries i.e. a month here, a month there.

That’s a bit of a shit sandwich

Tiger Tadgh

At least AOC might get a chance to show what he can do in the Prem league now 🙂 all is not lost

Fred

I can see you all listened to Blog’s last bit of advice.

fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu…deep breath….uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuckiing shit….deep breath….. its all my thoughts right now

Ejiro Esiri

C’mon AOC, u can step up to this

Marc

Could we not just get them all fitted with those pistorius carbon-fibre legs?

argonaut

This is what happens when you buy crocked or mediocre players. The fit, decent ones get overplayed and then they end up crocked too. This has nothing to do with the medical staff, and instead the unwillingness of Wenger to spend the money required to get the squad that is necessary to both compete and allow a proper amount of rotation of players. Concentrating on young players that have yet to fully develop physically is complete folly. They are not physically able to play the amount of games that is being demanded of them, and Wenger is too stingy to… Read more »

Eh. Not buying” young players that have yet to fully develop physically is complete folly.” LeBron James played a 72 game NBA season as a power forward getting manhandled by 7 foot behemoths at age 18. Players need more robust physical conditioning to cope with the roughness of the Premier League as well as developed skilsets.

The_Velour_Fog

Good lord!! Brutal news! Can it get any worse??? Can’t we just throw him in one of those bacta tanks from Star Wars and have him good to go in a week? FUCK!!!!

5am

Get well soon Jack

gunner x

i can see it coming now, in tomoros news thomas vermaelen has had a set back and wont be playing until pigs fly

LANS ARE THE BEST!!

(arYse)

Yes but what did he expect the bone to say?

northerngoon

I expect the bone to say,”fuck me I can talk. Oh and Gazidis is a cunt.”

ozziegun

FFS…I was so hoping to see Wishere and Ramsey together this season…well, Its time for Ramsey to step up and make it count.

Rafael

With all these injuries, I wonder what’s underneath the pitch at the Grove? Can we demolish the flats at Highbury Square and bring Highbury back to life?

northerngoon

See pet cemetary

She wore

We keep taking these hits but at some point something good has to happen right? How about a last minute adebayour own goal winner set up by gallas next week

Hoosier

Best news all day! Between V5, Diaby, and now Jack (always the question mark of Rosicky and RvP joining this distinguished list) we are going to have LANSings from now come January. Most active transfer period in AFC history, Most players in/out and LANSings in a 6 month period.

When it rains it pours. Seriously, the Arsenal’s officially become the protagonist in a real life tragic comedy. If you need me I’ll be the one sacrificing some horse placenta to Dennis to keep RvP fit.

Bunburyist

We’ll be fine. I feel for the lad, but we’ve got lots of cover in midfield now. We didn’t really have Ramsey last year, now we do. We also have Frimpong and Coquelin this season, while the Ox looks more than capable of contributing. We’ve bought Arteta and Benayoun, and Arshavin and Rosicky can play behind the striker as well. We’re covered. I’m actually pleased the burden has been lifted from Jack’s young shoulders.

Get well soon, Jack. Next year, you’ll be ALANS!

KC

adamantium is the answer

TomC

Almunia to play midfield so we at least we’ll get some money’s worth from the over-paid white elephant. Bah!

Rishi Raj

Another potential LANS .. Also hope Wenger continues the 4-4-2 …

mikey gee

godamit what has wenger done to our club?! SACK HIM NOW B4 IT GETS WORSE!!!!

TV MKII. Bad times

*DEEP BREATH#
Now to say something…eeeerr…. yeah it seems I had someone says that ‘there is nobody to be blamed for this crap injury to wilshire’ of course there is and that stubbon person is no other than Arsene Wenger. When you start using young players whou are yet to develop physically well(especially for the premership), for more games and playing time than necessary, WHAT DO YOU GET ‘BREAK DOWNS’ and that’s what is happening to our dear club.
I hope the guy get well soon and others.

Scooter

Hindsight, my fellow gooner, is 20/20. I’m guessing that if Wenger played Denilson last season to rest Jack while he was fit you would have been up in arms.

Heavy… Like this season just gets more and more depressing…

I can imagine the scene as the head Arsenal medical officer walks into the changing room:

“Hi everybody!”

“Hi Dr Nick!”

Good-Bloke

He’s out for the season, guaranteed, by the cunts will keep stringing us along.

Freaklikeme

Arsene said he knew verminator was gonna miss alot of last season but didn’t replace him even tho he knew…I’m waiting for the comment that they could of done surgery after the Emirates Cup…WTF is he doing to our club???

[…] for a quick return for Jacky Wilshere, be disappointed, as the club and player has confirmed that Jack would require surgery, and only return after the new year. Hopefully, Ramsey can step up and make Jack’s absence less noticeable. That said, Ramsey aka […]

Naija Gunner

How’s that capy ‘crap’?

Popeye

On the plus side…. Er

Popeye

Oh that was it , it will be like a new signing in January.

Bollox not Again

What’s worse is that watching Ramsey in the last few games has not been encouraging. Lot of back passing and lots of losing possession. He’s starting to look like another Theo. Flares of brilliance but overall not all he was cracked up to be.

RealityBytes

Hey Jack

Good luck with your surgery Monday morning. We are all praying for your swift return to health with no future problems from your bum ankle. The team will miss you but we, the fans, will miss you and your terrific talent the most.

God Bless Jack

[…] the treatment table. Though it seems the worst of the lot has to be Jack Wilshere as the youngster has undergone surgery, and might return at the earliest in February. Le Boss has clarified that the injury was incurred […]
