Arsenal fans are looking increasingly downcast here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro claim Jack Wilshere will be ruled out until the New Year following his injury against Manchester United.
That is, as one of our punters notes, a huge blow for the Gunners who are in dire need of keeping their key men fit and this will not go down well with the fans or Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal are out of the top four and are seeing the fans and indeed media turn on their manager who is coming under increasing pressure with every gameweek.
The news that key midfielder Wilshere is facing yet another spell out with injury, not to mention having to consult a specialist in the next few days to assess just how bad things are, does not bode well for his long-term future.
Over by the pool table we note that the Christmas period is one of the most busy and stressful periods for teams to negotiate and usually, they need all their best players to get through it.
Arsenal fans. Will your season deteriorate further now Wilshere is out for a while or are you more than used to dealing with his absence? Let us know your thoughts below.
