The Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern still aren’t overly delighted about the fact they will be competing in the Europa League this evening.
Indeed, it’s not a notion that’s gone down overly well amongst the punters propping up our bar, who watched the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea gear up for Champions League action last night.
However, our resident Gooners were handed a boost of late, with Jack Wilshere returning to full fitness in time for their game with Cologne tomorrow evening. Now, notable Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has taken to Twitter to welcome the England international.
Wilshere has proved a divisive figure in north London over the years amid a myriad of injuries, though has received Morgan’s backing on social media. He welcomed the injury-prone star back to fitness and told Wilshere his ‘fire and fight’ is exactly what Arsene Wenger’s side need.
Many of our local Arsenal fans agree and hope he’s handed a run-out at some point tomorrow.
Great to have you back.
Need some Wilshere fire & fight in this team. https://t.co/27EMu6XIfT
