The future of Englands midfield...

    Jack Wilshere. You heard it here first, fellas.

    If you haven't heard of him yet, you will have in a year or two. He's a lad at Arsenal who's not long since turned 16. He plays for England u18's. He's the most complete 16 year old I've ever seen. I'd go as far as to say he's even better than Cesc was at his age. His first touch, vision, passing and technique are unbelievable. He's been completely bossing the Arsenal midfield in pre-season friendlies. I don't expect him to start many competitive games this year, but oh boy, I can't wait to him in the Prem!

    I haven't watched him yet but to be honest I'm getting a bit tired hearing about him already. He's 16, he's not going to be breaking into the first team of a big 4 club for a while yet and there's no guarantee that he'll continue to develop. Obviously I think he will turn out great but I can't see all this hype being good when he's so far off. I'd compare him to Walcott when he first came to Arsenal. He's almost certain to come good in a couple of years time but we won't see much of him for a while.
