Obviously the TV sets were not working in Bournemouth during the Euro finals.

Otherwise they'd have thought twice about bringing in an injury prone over-paid player, who sadly no longer has any flair or game changing talent. He's hardly had any continuous football during the last year, and is unlikely to sustain being a 90 minute player, let alone be able to play many games, before he's back on the physio's couch.

Part of Hodgson's downfall was in selecting him, and now Bournemouth have mistakenly inherited him as an Arsenal cast-off.

If Wilshere had come to us, I would have groaned, because he won't bring the commitment and energy we need, and indeed already have.
Guaranteed - he won't be featuring as a regular in Bournemouth's team after Christmas!

Royal Bournemouth Hospital have got a full page advert in the Echo today looking for new nurses and doctors urgently.
Gearing up for Jacks arrival obviously....

I thought it would have done his England career the world of good if he moved abroad.

Learnt new systems, playing in and against, and away from the media limelight that is the British Media.

Oh well.....

Apparently he wanted to go to Roma but Arsenal wouldn't allow it because they have some previous bad blood with them over a transfer from last season?

I think this lad has missed his window unfortunately. Shame,could have been some player.

Agree, in say Italy the slower tempo and less physical pressure may have suited his style. Hope it works out for him at Muff.

I think it's a good move for him, going abroad could see him out of the limelight bu if he can keep fit down there and get regular games it'll be good for him......the problem is can he keep fit.

Never sign a player that feels that they are doing you a favour.... Bournemouth may have to learn the hard way. I can't see him doing anything special for them. I certainly can't see him playing for Arsenal again.

Think he will enjoy playing under Howe and may recapture his " spark"

Certainly wouldn't write him off just yet as we have seen what he can do when fully fit. Could be a shrewd bit of business by Muff

That will be Roma that has Szezney on loan from Arsenal?

Eddie Howe has sacked the entire medical staff. Apparently they passed Wilshere fit

Our young players so rarely go abroad to learn and develop. Money is too good in the Premier League. No sign of this changing any time soon.

Real shame, I'd love to see our young promising Managers cutting their teeth overseas to improve their chances of becoming successes in Premier League and who knows future National coaches.
Likewise be good to see some youngsters who will never go straight into Premier League sides being encouraged to get experience overseas but guess Brexit may reduce the slim chance to non existent now?

Couldn't he have bought out his contract to go to Roma?

We're is a good position to get players across to FCM, even if it is just to mix with the squad and do some training, and the B Team have already done that and their 2 games in Spain. We also have a player who was with a Premier League side and spent the season before we signed him playing in the Eredivisie.

:sorted: I hadn't even given FCM a thought and you're spot on we have a pretty unique opportunity that we should exploit. By all accounts I believe Josh was outstanding and really enjoyed his time at Vitesse Arnham

Preparing for European competitions, us! While fans don't think further than the next starting XI, it's good to hear Phil Giles talking long term. Regardless of the moans and groans, that the Club's management speak of these things indicates a long-term plan and not the knee-jerk reactions that we have.

I liked his quote of wanting to sign a top player, not just a player!

Terrible miss yesterday.

Easy to dislike this bloke. Always has a very arrogant look on his face.

It will be interesting to see how he does for them. If he's fit and stays that way, then he should be a very good player at this level and a big asset for Bournemouth's midfield.

On the other side if he is injured , then he will be a rather expensive asset.

Won't play until Feb 12th anyway, he's currently shielding as he's in the "worryingly vulnerable" category.

I was told that the other West Ham players referred to him as Jack Wheelchair

Another nice little pay package he’s got, bet he’s glad it’s not pay as you play

Wonder if it means Bournemouth are letting Brookes go
