One of the biggest prospects in English football in recent years was Arsenal centre midfielder Jack Wilshire. Despite his likeness to England legend Paul Gascoigne its his likeness to Darren Anderton and his prolific injury record that’s getting him noticed for all the wrong reasons. On Saturday 22nd October, Jack Wilshire completed 90 minutes for Bournemouth against Tottenham for the first time since September 2014! Here are the events that have occurred since Wilshire last played 90 minutes.
Leeds United have appointed 5 new managers
Italian chairmen have been renown for sacking managers at the drop of a hat in the fear of a poor run of games and Massimo Cellino is no different. Since Jack Wilshire last played the entire 2-1 League Cup win against Southampton.
Leicester avoided relegation – then went on to win the Premier League the following season
Roll back the clock to the end 2014/15 season and Leicester City narrowly avoided relegation. With a couple of problems off the pitch Nigel Pearson was forced to leave the club. Claudio Ranieri took the reigns of the foxes. He stormed the Premier League with ease and clinched the Premier League title. One of the pivotal players in the set up was Danny Drinkwater, failed to miss a single game for the champions and STILL Wilshire got the call up to the Euro 2016 competition over Drinkwater.
Rashford has gone from Manchester United under 18 to England international
Two years ago unless you were an avid #Football manager player you wouldn’t have heard of Marcus Rashford. Rashford broke into the Premier League scene when then manager Louis Van Gaal brought the youngster into his Manchester United side. He had a blistering start to his career scoring an impressive five goals in 11 games. Rashford and Wilshire look to be English teammates with the youngster swiftly becoming a fan favourite.

One of the most anticipated films in recent years was Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In the time since Wilshire played 90 minutes. Within 12 days of the release episode seven smashed the box office with $1 billion - a ground breaking record.
How I Met Your Mother finished
We finally found out! We were treated to the ending of “How I met your mother” (although not everyone was happy with how it ended.) The anticipation of finally seeing her appearance and to see how Ted found the love of his life – was just as long as waiting to see Wilshire complete 90 minutes.
This is a positive sign for English football as despite his injuries – Wilshire is still a top player and we hope that his time at Bournemouth with constant game time will up his match fitness and get him back to the level at football every England fans knows he can play at. #sport #Arsenal
