As Arsenal fans continue to come to terms with what is becoming a disastrous league campaign, Jack Wilshere has taken to Twitter in order to try and somewhat restore the team’s image with an apology.
This isn’t the first time that the 26-year-old has been forced to explain himself, although this time, he seems to agree with the fans regarding the recent criticism of the club.
The tweet, which was put out in the early hours of the morning, said the following: “I’m sorry to the gooners out there. You deserve better. Thats all i have to say. I know its difficult at the moment in this difficult period we are going through as a team but we need you. We will do better but please stick with us”.
Wilshere issued the apology in the wake of the club’s humiliating 2-1 defeat at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion, which marked the first time in which they’ve lost four consecutive games in over 15 years.
The critics are out in force regarding the squad as a whole and Arsene Wenger, but regardless of whether or not you feel strongly about the Frenchman, one man who is always going to make the headlines is the aforementioned Jack Wilshere.
For years now he’s been pinpointed as both one of the biggest positives and negatives of Arsenal Football Club, with his off the pitch antics and injuries being balanced out by his sophisticated and commanding style of play.
Now, though, that doesn’t mean all too much, as the primary focus is turning around what appears to be a sinking ship. Right now it seems like the supporters are much more focused on Wenger than anyone else, with some even praising Jack for coming out and actually communicating with the fanbase.
As we move forward there’s a very real chance that the England international could be awarded the captain’s armband, and when you consider just how popular he is, that may not come as much of a surprise.
In terms of the future, the club needs to be focusing their attention on salvaging what remains of their league campaign late in the season, which is something they’ve actually been quite good at over the last few years.
Unfortunately, it’d take a minor miracle for them to celebrate a berth in the top four, with Bet365 offering odds of 150/1 for them to overcome the current 13-point deficit between themselves and rivals Tottenham.
