RisZero

Still like him despite a poor season at Bmouth. Suspect this is a garbage rehash of last years interest though.

If he can stay fit and in form he would be excellent for us, but thats a big if.

Seems unlikely we would ever get him for more than a loan if it is true and he did do well.

Chances of it being tied to the Chambers interest? Do a deal if you help us develop Jack for a year?

Buy Chambers. Loan with view to buy Wilshere. Gives us a chance to test him out in FdB's system and see if he can stay injury-free (haha).

Think this would be a mistake TBH. His lack of impact at Bournemouth says it all. There can be little point in hoping that he would magically find top form after being in a team that was tailor made for him and it was MEH. Too risky re injury still too. There are far better options. Re a poster above. I would prefer Puncheon every day in 2017.

For 6m it would be a definite yes for me. He does come across a bit arrogant, but I would think his recent valuation would humble him a bit.

Apparently he struggled to get back in the Bournemouth side after Howe changed the formation round. I'd rather have a 6/9m Wilshire in the squad than Mutch...

Not really that bothered about him as there would be a risk, but it could also be a bargain.

Don't think he was ever dropped by Bournemouth, was very popular there pre-Xmas and then got knocks and injuries meaning he was rested before turning to Arsenal. Played 29 Premier League games last year.

Agreed re he is talent. However after loaning Remy last season which no doubt cost us several million in loan fee plus wages with **** all in return, it's understandable not to want to take the risk. But anyone who says he isn't very good is talking bollox

He wasn't rested before he returned to Arsenal, he got injured playing for Bournemouth v Spurs in one of the last games of the season where I believe he broke his leg, not what i would call rested

If it was a loan, I don't think we'd be paying his full wages, likewise if it was a permanent. With his injury record and recent dip in form it would be naive to pay top dollar, which I don't think Parish would do after the Remy debacle anyway.

Don't want Wilshere, looks decidedly average these days & don't think he could help improve the team. As for Chambers, don't know enough about him but 'rumour' says we are interested in him for about GBP16m, which seems a lot for a defender without an established pedigree - albeit that he's an Arsenal player? Don't see the logic there.

Nigelbrag
18-07-2017, 07:23 AM
Without question he WAS a superb player who should/would have been one of the First names down on any England midfield selection in his hey day and still only 25yrs old, but unfortunately that is now history and so should loaning him be, until fully fit.
It's a huge cop out or dare i say it a con for Arsenal simply to loan him out when clearly not match fit (nearly 2 years now) but also get a huge fee in the bargain, more fool any club that does so and i certainly hope it's Not Palace, and that coming from a big fan of Wilshere as i am.

An Arsenal fan described him to me as 6 or 7 out of 10 at everything without any kind of standout quality (apart from getting injured and he's aces at that). Which I think is probably fair. We actually talked about why he doesn't have the massively successful career that another average at everything player like Milner does and concluded that apart from staying fit, Milner is Has a 10/10 adaptablility player and 10/10 attitude.

Tidy player. Not 100k a week or even close.

I was thinking the same. In the past I think we have taken too much of a chance on players injury records, even mental capacity re. Adebayor, in the hope it pays off and it really doesn't seem like we have much luck.

I could understand it if our youth team players were closer to the first team and pushing those in the 25 man squad but it's not quite there yet from the looks of things, although it is nice to see FDB taking a good look at them this pre-season.
We need to have a 25 man squad with less risks in it this season if we are to have a stable season.

I watched him loads last year at Bournemouth and it's not just injuries and fitness. It seems either his confidence is buggered or for whatever reason he has lost that speed of thought he had at his best. Much like Rooney last year his first touch was often to control and then look up or the puncheon spin. Of course with confidence this may change but I can't imagine our fans giving him the time to play himself back into 'mental' fitness.

He is an injury nightmare that is why

I fully understand what you and others say about his injury concerns and the huge gamble it would be signing Wilshire. But to confound matters we then offer "known crocks" Jonny Williams a new contract, and Wickham and Sakho paid huge contracts when constantly injured.
But if he were to be signed and we were fortunate to have him stay injury free, boy would we have some midfield Wilshire with Loftus-Cheek.

With respect to Jonny, Jack is known all round the country for his footballing abilities (and injuries). Jonny is barely known outside of the CPFC. Ipswich and now Sunderland fan base. Whilst I like Jonny and really wish he would work for us, it's like trying to compare a Macdonald's happy meal with a fillet steak (although maybe a slightly over done one that's been ruined a touch).

Puncheon, McArthur and Cabaye all in or approaching their thirties. RLC will be back at the end of the season. That will leave Luka in the summer as the one specialist midfielder in his twenties still at the club. We have lots of midfielders here. Let's hope we can move some of them on.

Jordon Mutch obviously, but I'd also move on James McArthur. Keep Cabaye and Puncheon.

Nigelbrag
14-09-2017, 10:07 AM
Chances are Cabaye could be moving back to France, and with his contract running out soon, it makes sense to sell. A quality replacement will be needed, and if that was to be Wilshire then we should count ourselfs fortunate, yes there could be fitness issues but i am sure if he was unfit he would Not be bought, but lets get realistic a 100% fit Wilshire would only be an impossible dream in coming to Palace.
Where my concerns would be is the fee Arsenal would want, possibly in excess of 20m and wages of 100k? is a big gamble knowing his injury history, so i do reserve judgement until i know he can play regularly now until January without breaking down, but if he was to do so successfully then we would be back of the queue.
But if he could be bought for around 10/12m, then it is a big yes from me.

I'm no doctor, but some of those injuries look like he was brought back too early, either that or him doing that thing where you subconsciously put too much weight on the healthy side in an attempt to protect the other.

I was reading an article about Bournemouth and it said he got dropped simply because Howe changed formation and style which no longer suited Wilshire.

Guessing his purchase fee would be reasonable and surely he (or his agent) shouldn't be expecting massive wages. Can't say I'm too keen, but at the same time, if it does happen, I won't be going through the roof like some. If fit, he's the kind of player that can break down a stubborn defence, something we very rarely do, however there must be better value out there that can do the same with less injury risk. I think Roy will sign him in January.

Not a position we should be prioritising this january. We have plenty of good central players, especially if Roy plays 442 or 4411. And with the obvious question marks over his fitness and injury record, not sure we should be considering him as a long term replacement for Yo.

He's shown in recent performances for Arsenal that he's got the ability, but he needs a run of first team football and to remain injury free. But we'll only have so much to spend so I can't see this one being high on the agenda.

How much do you think a bench player at Arsenal with 6 months left on his deal will cost? 5m may do, depending on whether other clubs go into a bidding war.

The problem would be West Ham as i believe Wilshere supported them as a boy.

As for being high on the Agenda, with an eye to the future, our midfield 3 come August 2018 is Luka, Puncheon and Mutch! If a CM is not high on the Agenda in Jan, it will have to be at the very top in the summer! Same as a keeper.

Well more like hobble or wheel himself into the team...

Sounds like his agent is working overtime to get him a move to increase his chances of a World Cup place.

Our priority must be at least one striker, then a keeper. And not another injury prone player.

Buy Loftus Cheek and TFM and loan in him for 6 months.

Don't get this bloke. Injured all the time, then plays practically and entire season uninjured for Bournemouth on loan, then in the Summer immediately injured for Arsenal. He's a crock, we need players on the pitch not another Loic Remy.

This is true I forgot about his contract, you're probably looking at in today's market, peanuts. I agree with you in terms of what we'll have in August it'll be threadbare, it all depends on how the club want to go about strengthening the squad and the vision they have going forwards. If we could sign Wilshere and then sign RLC on a permanent that's two cracking center midfielders who of thrive which in my eyes would will only enhance their value massively.

Sadly I don't think this will happen. I hope RLC plays a blinder for England if selected. Should he leave Chelsea he will join a top 6 side in my opinion.

Riedewald as well, but I have been saying for a long time that centre mid is a priority position. Ideally Wilshere and Loftus Cheek on permanents plus Cabaye to extend his contract, but maybe that's greedy. Not to mention unrealistic!

If he wants to play regularly he should join a side that will compete just below Top 6, in order that his England career can continue. No point sitting on the bench like Wilshere and Oxlade at Top 6 clubs. Would he play at Tottenham, Man City, Man Utd? Unlikely. He's a South London lad.

Luka, Cabaye, RLC and Jimmy currently. Plus cover if needed. It's not a priority position - striker and keeper are urgent.

Two months ago I'd have agreed, I still believe on his day he's one of the best center midfielders I've seen in a Palace shirt, he has the whole package but has a real scope for improvement. He's got good technique and he's very powerful but he lacks the mental side of the game and in my eyes that's down to not having the amount of first team football a player of his age should. He's a great player but the top clubs can't afford time to develop these players bar Pochettino at Tottenham but I can't see RLC entertaining the idea being a Chelsea boy. He needs two seasons playing regularly and if we can turn it around to stay up and get the good factor around the place again I see no reason why this couldn't happen.

Luka, incredibly slow in my opinion

Cabaye, inconsistent but brilliant on his day, not often enough though.

RLC has looked good until being played out wide

Jimmy, sorry, time to move on.

Even with his injury riddled past, should he steer clear of injuries this season there will be a queue of clubs awaiting his signature if as stated his contract expires in the summer for sure. This guy when fit is a class act and unfortunately if being in demand will rule Palace out, personally i would love to have him at the club.

Which is the reason to get him in January when less clubs might be in the running. In the summer he would almost certainly move to West Ham.

With his contract running down though he'll be in today's market peanuts as he'll be desperate to sign for someone else in the hope of going to Russia. If you look for a similar like for like player with good technical ability in the middle of the park they're going for a premium. Proper at Brighton would've been perfect for 10M.

I could not agree more as i am a big fan, if only it could happen would be wonderful. But unfortunately i see a host of clubs giving him a better alternative, than joining a struggling club like Palace who are looking likely relegation candidates unless there is a drastic turnaround.
