Gael Clichy was the first to leave for Manchester City this summer, the Nasri also left Arsenal to go to Manchester but now Jack Wilshere has come out and said he will not be joining Manchester city any time soon and he is loyal to Arsenal. Way to go son! This is a bit of positive news for us considering the poor start to the season that we have had.

Wilshere said, “We do get a harder time from the critics than most teams, but we haven’t won anything for six years and that’s not good enough for Arsenal.

“It is harsh, though, especially on the boss. He has been there for 15 years and been great for Arsenal. The criticism Arsene gets is a joke.

“No disrespect to Manchester City but Arsenal is the perfect home for me right now.”

Wilshere added, however: “Some players have got their price, but to be honest that’s not the way I look at the game.

“All I think about is playing at the highest level and in the top competitions, so I can measure myself against the best in the world.

“I really am happy at Arsenal at the minute. Obviously I want to win things [but] I want to do it with Arsenal. I have been at Arsenal since I was nine and I have grown to love the club.

“There are players there who have been there as long as me and I think we are starting to build something special there with the likes of Emmanuel Frimpong and players I have seen in the youth teams coming through.

“In a couple of years, they’ll be big players for us.

“Obviously I want to play in the Champions League and that is the aim for Arsenal and everyone at the club. We’ve started a bit slowly but we still feel we can finish in the top four.”
