Think this young man should focus on football leaving the talking on the pitch Joe hart is a prime example off to much chat impacting on form

Heard the Wilshire I/v and all he was saying was that being a resident for 5 years should not automatically give you English qualification

In fairness to Roy Team England have been reviewing how we are to go forward in line with all the other National teams and as such this lad could, in time fit our new requirements therefore when asked it was a reasonable response

Personally I agree with Wilshire should be born here been living here from Infant School time or English parentage

................................didn't there used to be matches between England and the Football League many moons ago, where those who didn't qualify to play for England were allowed to play against England - something sort of akin to the Barbarians set-up in Rugby Union...................................?

Used to be on the Friday night before the cup final nearly always at Highbury. I don't think many people bothered turning up so it was knocked on the head. The late, great Bert Trautmann was no 1 keeper for the Football league squad for quite a few years.

The lad's not spent months producing an academic report on nationality. He's been put on the spot by a journo, answered instinctively and then gone on to be misquoted / taken out of context.

To say "only English people should play for England" is reasonable.

He's not then gone on to consider the definition of English. I've always been comfortable with one parent. Less so at Grandparent, but that is a long established rule. English by naturalisation? Not so sure. English due to British Citizenship and living in England? Yeah, I think so.

Terry Butcher was born in Singapore and John Barnes was born in Jamaican, I don't like the fact about someone playing in this league for 5 years that can qualify for England tbh.. as long as we win a major cup in my lifetime I want mind as the players we have are crap..

I wonder what he thought of his team mate Manuel Almunia's potential claim to play for England in 2009 then..
One of his Arsenal team mates, and fellow England player, was born in Finland.

Don't see the problem in a player expressing his opinion. This is a pretty harmless comment anyway. The chances are he will be a future captain so this is a good time to learn how to handle our lovely press.

the more i see it, the more i'm disgusted by the press coverage of this. and i know it's everywhere but this has just rammed it home. whipping up their own imaginary storm, all because some kid scored two goals at the weekend. christ :rolleyes:

disappointed to see the BBC sinking to this level :nono:

To be honest his attempts to showcase all that's good about English football are a little more telling:

The 21-year-old added: "We have to remember what we are. We are English. We tackle hard, are tough on the pitch and are hard to beat.

"We have great characters. You think of Spain and you think technical but you think of England and you think they are brave and they tackle hard. We have to remember that.

Jack Wilshere.

A professional hospital patient whose career has been blighted by appearances for Arsenal.

Not bothered.

Its far to fashionable to be offended nowadays.

He sang a song about disliking Tottenham after beating Aston Villa.

How often have we sung songs about hating Fulham and QPR while playing another team?

I'd rather see what the FA are goig to about the Leicester City players who filmed themselves shagging and apparently racially abusing some thai tarts.

Don't disagree about the Leicester players.

Re: Wilshere - difference between us and him is that he is meant to be a professional footballer. Given you get booked for taking off your shirt when you celebrate a goal and he has form for this type of behaviour before (I think), I hope he gets a fine.

The bloke is a grade A pri** who symbolises everything wrong with professional footballer. No doubt he will be out injured for 6 months when they throw the book at him.

Its all about being a role model.
I would have thought the bloke would spend more time trying to actually stay fit and play games, rather than being a massive bell end.
if Harlee did that at Fulscum we would all be laughing...

OTT by the FA for me. There are more important things they should be dealing with than this.

I think the problem may be that he did something similar after the Cup parade last year, causing the FA to have a word with him.

If the FA were to ignore it again, it would seriously weaken their authority and I don't personally think that an option.

Meanwhile, lots of players have been penalised for posting insults about other clubs/players on Twitter and Facebook etc.

Doing the same on an open top bus in Islington is no different in principle.

He was at a family event and decided to act like a dickhead. What can you say. Yes it would all be good fun in a different era and with a different audience. In the age of camera phones and child protection with a warning from the FA from last year thrown-in he was always going to be picked-up on this.

But maybe being out at a club until 6am muddled his thinking eh #athlete

I don't see how anyone can take a bloke who has played 100 games in 7 years seriously.
Thinks he's the next great thing, but can't play three games in a row.
he is just 23, 7 seasons?

If this is the worst thing that football had to be concerned about, then everything's all right.

What (within the realms of GPG legality) did he say exactly?

Wilshere took to the microphone during the parade and asked the gathered supporters: "We've got one question. And one question only.
"What do we think of Tottenham? sh*t! What do you think of sh*t? Tottenham! Thank you."
The England international was spoken to by Arsenal staff after this latest incident but the club said they would not be taking action
... slight over reaction by The FA:rolleyes:

Seems a bit OTT to me, but he is a nob at times.
He was warned as to his future conduct by the FA last year. So he "got away" with it last year and then repeated his behaviour. What else do you expect the FA to do???

Deal with the players beating people up in night clubs and racially abusing women and filming it. Thats more of a priority for me

banter gone out of the window at The FA then?
He's not as good as he thinks he is.
He's not as clever as he should be
He's not setting good examples, when we need modern players to be looked up to, respected and above this sort of thing.

I think he's got one more season to prove he can contribute fully to a team and actually show us that he will progress

There are very few footballers that can be considered role models or respected.

Anyone who considers the likes of Jack Wilshire a role model, should be sterilised so that they cannot breed.

That said, players are doing worse things and getting away with it.
