West Ham United fans on Twitter are not having any of the latest update on the fitness of injury-prone midfielder Jack Wilshere.
“Jack Wilshere is almost ready. Next week, I think that he’ll be working 100 per cent with our squad."https://t.co/9NGVdWpwU3

On Thursday, the Hammers’ official account Tweeted out a quote from Manuel Pellegrini’s pre-Manchester United press conference about the former England international.
The under-pressure veteran gaffer revealed that his summer signing, who has been out since the start of December and suffered further set-backs before that, is “almost ready” and will return to full training with the squad next week.
However, members of the Claret & Blue Army were not buying any of it as they blasted the important club update with comments such as “expect him to be back on the treatment table the following week then” and the rather comical “did Theresa May say this?”
Wilshere has made a measly five appearances in all competitions in his first campaign at London Stadium and supporters, left frustrated by the likes of Andy Carroll and Winston Reid in recent times, are clearly fed up.
