Terrible Typos: Match of the Day don’t know how to spell the name of Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere [Pictures]

It’s a sad day when the BBC, England’s flagship TV channel, can’t spell properly.

Hundreds of viewers noticed a glaring spelling error during the highlights of Cardiff versus Arsenal on Match of the Day on Saturday night, as Jack Wilshere’s name was spelt wrong.

Making a common mistake, MOTD wrote the Arsenal and England midfielder’s name as Wilshire rather than Wilshere.

It was only a small error, but it caused big outrage from Arsenal fans and other couch surfers.

A series of pictures and tweets flagging up the MOTD spelling error are below.
