Wilshere going to Bournemouth
It’s not quite official yet but it’s more or less a done deal. Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is going to spend the season on loan at Bournemouth. It’s not the worst place to play your football. Eddie Howe is a talented young manager who lines his team out to play in a positive manner.
It could be the ideal place for Wilshere to rebuild his career.
Italian job? No thanks
Then again, why not Italy? If he ends up staying in the Premier League then it’s likely he turned down both AS Roma and AC Milan. Those are genuine Italian giants. Okay, maybe Milan aren’t what they were. Yet there’s still a massive appeal to playing for a club with that kind of history.
Seriously. They’ve won seven European Cups and 18 Serie A titles. C’mon, Jack.
Isn’t the prospect of helping them back to the top table of European football more appealing than a potential relegation battle with Bournemouth? No offence to the Cherries.
Well, yeah, of course. We suspect that he would have gone to Milan, too, if it wasn’t for those pesky kids. He’s playing his football in England so that he can stay close to his family.

A year in Rome or a year in Bournemouth is surely a no brainer. It’s obvious Jack Wilshire doesn’t have one.

Wilshere to Bournemouth. Should do well under Howe if he stays fit. Plays football the right way. Links up with Afobe. #afc

I know he has a young family but the football romantic in me can’t get his head around turning down AC Milan for Bournemouth. *The* Milan.

Bournemouth must be jumping up and down at the prospect of @JackWilshere joining the club on loan. Hope he gets the run of games he needs.

Fair play to Wilshere. Hope he remains fit #AFC

Just imagine a Wilshere medical: “Well Jack you don’t seem to have any functioning body parts.”
“Yeah but guess what I think of Tottenham”
