Frustrating season for me but I am hungrier than ever for next season. Big summer ahead for me to be ready for pre season. Shout out to the skipper, not just for yesterday but for the whole season! Like a fine wine ? See you in july Hammers ⚒
A post shared by Jack Wilshere (@jackwilshere) on
Wilshere posted this on Monday reflecting on a season of frustration but his teammates Ryan Fredricks and Robert Snodgrass piled in with some light-hearted banter.
Clearly, Wilshere must turn up to training in some dodgy gear and Sunday’s miss from six-yards out was shocking to say the least.
Of course, Wilshere has never been known for his finishing but fans still probably expected him to score just as Snodgras did..
The England international has only made eight appearances and registered a single assist this season.
He has the talent but his injury problems suggest it’s unlikely he will play even 20 games a season and, for player earning so much money, that is not a sound investment.
Manuel Pellegrini will likely want to make him a key part of his Hammers side next year but that is not guaranteed given his glass legs.
The next campaign feels like a make or break season for Wilshere.
There is no doubt he has the ability to make a real difference to this West Ham side if he can stay fit, however, if he can’t, it could prematurely spell the end of his time at the Hammers.
