    Old thread is quite old. He's supposedly only a few weeks away, so might as well start a new one

    Can update the title when he's actually back. Though, this title is probably going to be appropriate 70% of the time anyway. Always on his way back it seems.

    Where will he play? Who will make way? What do we expect from him this year and into the next?

    I just hope he's realised that in order to gain a consistent run in the team consistently, slight changes and tweaks in his style of play are necessary i.e. running and clattering straight into defenders, basically getting himself injured! The guy needs to be more aware and intelligent yes I want him to use his dribbling ability but he needs to learn when to dribble and when not. Personally I'd like to see him playing deeper next to Coquelin in the long term but Arséne seems to want him on the flanks or as a 10.

    As much as it pains me to say it, I hope he doesn't change his style of play, injury-inducing or not.

    It is what makes him the great player he is.

    Wish the best for this guy, but preparing for the worst.

    Bowls into the Arsenal and England team with a B&H hanging off his bottom lip when fit. Should see it soon.

    Where though? at CM or on the right?

    I'm thinking Wenger will try him at CM again, with him and Santi alternating when both fit. Ramsey moving back to the right.

    Lady_Gooner That's Mrs. Ramsey to you buster!

    All these new threads are giving me serious anxiety :lol:

    But jacks situation can't get any worse I guess

    I think he could take any position he gets the chance to take. Certainly CMF. If he gets a chance on the right, he could nail that down too--not that I'd be a fan of having his type on the right, but he's proven he can do very well there. If he got a go at No.10, he could do very well there too, but Wenger wont have the guts to let him stay there. If Özil got injured and Jack was fit, I think he'd be the natural choice there.

    I want him at CM, but we played him on the right vs West Brom and I gotta say it worked very well.

    There isn't another player like him in the league, never mind at Arsenal. And some people want him sold. :lol:

    Give him half a season without injuries, and they'll never want him sold again.

    He definitely could especially if we have Özil on the pitch as well . With Ramsey and Coquelin in the middle .

    I'd stick him in CM. He can also fill in for Özil when the time calls for it.

    I just hope he's learnt to release the ball quicker rather than dribbling down blind alleys. That's one thing that used to really get on my nerves.

    I think everyone would love to see what Jack could do with a real good extended injury free run in the side. He could play in a number of positions I feel. CM would be great. At the 10 when we want to give Özil a rest. Or imagine Alexis's driving runs from the left and Jack's driving runs from the right?

    Hope he can become healthy for a good stretch.

    The imminent return of Jack Wilshere
    ...to the sick room.

    In all seriousness tho, my heart says he'll come in and play enough to help us chase the EPL. You know, just here and there and maybe do well next season.

    My head tells that a) he'll have to play more games then planed because of squad injuries. Or b) he'll play well, finish the season in a promising way. Get overplayed at Euros, etc. etc.

    I know that B is less plausible is because England isn't the best when it comes to these competitions, but it can happen.
