I have just come back from my break (for anyone that cares, I had the chef’s special soup of the day) and Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere’s name is flying around the Football Transfer Tavern.
I assumed it was because of the lovely equalising goal he scored for the Gunners against West Bromwich Albion yesterday.
I was wrong.
Poor ol’ Jack is still getting it in the neck for being caught smoking and his subsequent tweets about the whole issue.
A group of Tottenham Hotspur fans have entered with a good few hundred printouts of Jack Wilshere’s new shirt number.
Obviously it isn’t but it does seem, in the tavern at least, that the Arsenal and England role model will take a while to live this one down.
Maybe someone should tell England manger Roy Hodgson to keep a close eye on the 21-year-old when he passes through duty free while on the next international break out of the UK…
