Wilshere surgery goes ‘according to plan’

According to the doctor who performed the ‘minor’ surgery on Jack Wilshere’s knee, the operation was a complete success.

Håkan Alfredsson is a specialist at the Sports Medicine Clinic in Umeå, and although he’s been instructed by Arsenal to give away as little information as possible about the details of the procedure, he told (Swedish) that there were no complications.

“Everything has gone well, entirely according to plan,” he said. “We performed a surgery on a tendon in his knee.”

When asked about the typical recovery time from such surgery, he said, “The normal recovery time is usually two to three months”, which should give Wilshere a chance of being fit for the start of next season. That said, with up to three months rehab ahead of him, Arsenal’s definition of ‘minor’ seems a little off. Perhaps a better word might have been ‘routine’. Unless they were comparing it to a knee amputation in which case they’re spot on.

Jack missed the whole of last season with ankle problems, which has also ruled him out of the European Championships and the Olympics, but fingers crossed this operation is the last one he’ll need for some time, and we can see him back in red and white as soon as possible.

2 to 3 months?! I thought the minor surgery meant like a few weeks. How is Stuart Pearce going to pick him now……

the only sam is nelson

“normal” recovery time presumably refers to joe public rather than a super fit athlete with access to hyperbolic chambers and magic buttons etc etc

hardly a surprise, though. far better than reading that the surgeon was discovered slumped in a bar, drunk, crying about the career of a promising young footballer he’d just ruined because he’d operated on the wrong knee. using his left hand. after a bottle of whisky. *that* would be bad

Cygan's Right Foot

That would make me not want to use a Swedish surgeon but maybe go for a drink with him


Well he isnt calle “Psycho” for nothing.


Stuart Pearce couldn’t pick his own nose properly.


If true, it would be the first thing that has in Wilshere’s long recovery.


With that logic, major one recovery time : 3 years ? lol

Cygan's Left Foot

We are talking about the KING of spin Arsene. In order not to sign anyone it is a “MINOR”. Just like he will be back in Jan this year. Now Jack and Diaby our summer signing!!!!.


Podolski (replacement for RVP) plus one French African from leaga 2/3 our next summer signing and the blind sheep will follow the fraud king of spin for the 8th year AGAIN.

a gunner

Well said


Why are you nervous when you have me! I can cover all the spots with my skills.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

Hey everybody! A Swedish doctor talked about surgery he performed on one of our players!!!

It’s the absolute, perfect opportunity to slam Wenger yet again!!!!!!

Janet Team Santos11

Am Glad the surgery was successful. Hoping 2 see him Play @ the start of the season.

Cygan's Left Foot

Keep dreaming, Christmas at best. Fraud Arsene killing the kids not to spend money and sign mature players that can take the EPL toughness. He never ask the owner for money and making him money to keep his 7 million a year job.

He knows the blind sheep will follow no matter what. Who said he cares about Arsenal?????


Been a while Miranda.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

Hey everybody! Somebody wished one of our injured players a quick recovery!!!

It’s the absolute, perfect opportunity to slam Wenger yet again!!!!!!



I’m glad the surgery was success.. Hope Lil Jack’s recovery goes as planned.. I’m not expecting him to be a regular next season(at least the first half) and allow him to take his time recovering properly and not hurrying..

Faisal Tozo

Unbelievable! I Hope he’ll make it for the pre-season.

Cygan's Left Foot

He won’t make it until Christmas at best. Instead of signing Arteta like the year before, our fraud manager destroy the kids promising career.


I know from a source within the club that Wilshere begged not to play anymore games, but evil, greedy Wenger forced him to. It’s all part of Arsenal’s most successful manager’s plan to make sure that Arsenal never ever again wins a trophy. Oh and my reliable source also told me that we have a lot of money, but Wenger saves it to build a gigantic statue of himself outside the stadium. Made out of poor gold. True story

how do these footballers who are out of action for such a long time not put on substantial weight.. has anyone got the answer ?

the only sam is nelson



Some nice morning sex should do the trick.
Trust me I know this things.

Kolo Toure

My wife’s diet pills


I know the answer……, no I don’t.




Fucking mexican, thinks everything can be solved by cocaine.

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

He’s a fool. Everything can be solved by Michael Caine.

Not a lot of people know that.


Too many surgeries!!!!!! He is becoming a man made human…. Giving up on jack :((((((

Brian Mendoza

Actually, a man made human sounds badass. Kinda like Abou “Biomechanical” Diaby.

We can rebuild them. We have the technology.


im gonna do a ph.d on abou “biomechanical” diaby.


Aren’t *all* humans man-made…? Ya know technically? 😉


Oooh, can we make him 10 feet tall with oversized fists made of steel? And then release him on Stoke? I can almost imagine GigantiJack swatting away retarded cunts, shouting ‘THIS IS FOR RAMSEEEEEY!’. 😀


To the best of my knowledge most humans are in fact man made. Or perhaps woman made.


heh beat me to the punch! 🙂

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

You ignorant fellow! I was man-(and woman) made and there’s nothing wrong with me. Just ask my psychiatrist, Percy Frankenstein, MD.


Any more surgeries and his leg is gonna look like sarah jessica parkers face!.

Anyone seen the bitch?, trust me she ugly.

RVP's Right Foot

Sarah Jessica Parker? Have you seen John Terry lately?


Szczesney: john terry is an ugly girl……


He said: “At Arsenal it [the name John Terry] is
another word for an ugly girl.
“If there’s a girl around that we don’t really like,
we use it as a smokescreen/codename: ‘Have
you seen John Terry recently?’
“He’s terrible. I recommend this, it really works”…………….

Szczesneys actually said this.hahahahaha


Leave Carles Puyol out of this.


Poor Ivan Campo.


his leg is going to look like a horse?

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

If she’s lucky Sarah Jessica Parker will be able to get surgery to make her face look more like Jack’s leg.

Master Bates

Does that mean he’ll be fit to play in the next 4 to 5 months

Jake DelHomey

Has there ever been a surgery done that wasn’t reported as a “complete success”? Just once, I’d like to hear a surgeon say “Eh, really didn’t go that great.”


You’d “like to hear a surgeon say “Eh, really didn’t go that great.””.

Well how about right after your triple bypass, or your breast augmentation?

Leave our Jack alone. Get well soon!

I wish him fast recovery. Three month is nothing when u think he stayed off field for a year now

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

He should try the Guinness. It looks good, it tastes good, and by golly it does you good.


I have already accepted that he will never play football again, so whenever he returns it will be a nice surprise.



But, you know what he will be like if he comes back…

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

Why would you assume that a poster on here would mean Hargreaves?

He means Michael Owen.


We may be forced to make a new breed of super footballer from what´s left of Jack and Frimpong. I´m sure Ivan has been working on this for months, it´s the footballing equivalent of recycling (DIaby was the guinea pig but there´s nothing left on him worth saving).

The burning questions are how many squad places would this franken-footballer take up? And has anyone seen Vela and Bendtner since they returned from their loan spells and were shown the new lab for the first time?

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

Emmanushire Jackpong?

Bela Ventner will be LANS next season.


Call me a cynic, but Arsenal asking the Doctor no to mention anything about the surgery sounds really fishy. Shouldn’t they want to encourage fans by saying telling what was done & the particulars so it sounds optimistic? Much like the RVP scenario, when you give the fans little communication as seems to be the way with everything coming out of Arsenal it leaves a very uneasy feeling in our stomachs.

The communication between the club and fans has got to improve almost as much as our injury record.

The invincible arse

May be they don’t want the opponents to target the operated parts, like what happened to Diaby (by that worthless CL winner Essien) and Sagna (by that whoever who plays for Norwich).

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

You don’t need the details. I have heard about the operation. Doctor Alfredsson told me,

“First we removed a small piece of tendon from Jack’s penis, Here is a photograph of…..”

Why ruin your summer by inventing problems at the start of it? All that does is bring out the idiots with smart-arse replies. 😉


He’s actually on vacation. Wenger paid the doc to make up this procedure to ensure he would be safe from international duty for the summer.


quick recovery mate.2013 is our year guys.apart from podolski who else would you want in your team.ryo,wilshere make me be excited for next season.


Cygans LF
Spot on buddy. We still have quite a few with their blinkers on lol.
Arsene is god. (is he fuck. Sack the cunt. )


Wish him a quick recovery. Wouldn’t want to jinx it by speculating on his return.

Good thing is that now Pearce can suck it.

amazing pretend surgery!

i love how we pretend jaks having surgery just to stop him being selected for the pointless olympic team! class! keep our player and he keeps respect of the nation… amazing. jack wilshere pfa player of the year 12/13 season.

big dawg

A cross between what’s left of jack and frimpong? How about jimpong?


i prefer frimcoq.

Or how about good ol Robin van coqsong?

Gutbukkit Deffrolla

Haha. I bet you were tempted to say Robin van Coqsacker first. Glad you changed your mind, it was a terrible idea.

big dawg

Yep, but I’m sure the people in the lab must have mulled over the idea. After all, they gave us a tall guy called crouch.
