He is one of the few top-quality players at the club and has been in sparkling form ever since he returned from injury and now Jack Wilshere believes that if we can pick up some silverware soon we can go on to win a succession of trophies in the coming seasons.
As we all know we have gone a number of years without bringing home any kind of trophy and have been mocked continuously for that. And this season is not going any better as we are well behind in the Premier League, face Bayern Munich in the next round of the Champions League and are also out of the Capital One Cup.
So that pretty much leaves the FA Cup as our only chance of winning anything and if we manage to beat Swansea City in the reply, we will go on to face Brighton, which is a tie we should not lose.
And Wilshere has revealed that he and his team-mates are hungry to finally taste success.
Speaking to Sky Sports he said: “We all want a trophy,” said the 21-year-old. “As players, when you finish your careers you look back and see how many trophies you have won, so we all want trophies, and the fans want trophies as well.
“We are hungry for trophies and if we get a trophy this year, then maybe it can open the way for a few more.
“We have got a good group of young players here and experienced players as well.
“So, if we get a trophy this year or in the next couple of years, we can really build something over the next few years.
“Obviously it is easy to sit here and say that when we get one trophy it will happen, but we need to get that first trophy. We know how tough the FA Cup is this year and we are still in the Champions League as well.”
The young man has committed his long-term future to us and we are all glad that he has. But we are still lacking in key areas of the field and if we are to bring success back to the Emirates then we need to go out and buy.
However, I’m not talking about world-class players that would cost a fortune, but ones that would improve us enough to get us back challenging for everything.
