Jack Wilshere Confesses Over Volley Goal as Being A Gamble.


Jack Wilshere put his name on the scoresheet when Arsenal thumped West Brom 4-1 in their last Premier League game of the season.

The English international who made his 100th league appearance scored the third goal of the game. He spoke to pressmen after the match, expressing delight over his side's performance and according to him, and as we all saw from the game, the Gunners could have scored up to six or seven goals. The Arsenal academy product also admitted the goal he scored was a sort of gamble.

“We’ve given the fans something to remember,” the midfielder said. “The first half had some of the best performances we’ve played this season. Every time we went forward and got into the final third we looked dangerous.

“We could have been six or seven up. We were happy with the four and we maybe dropped off a little bit in the second half, but we’re pleased with the first half and I’m happy with my goal.

“Gabriel set it to me and it was one of those where if I hit it another 100 times it wouldn’t go in. I hit it sweetly and it hit the top corner.”

Theo Walcott was another big name of the day. He scored a hattrick in the first half and Wilshere did not hide his admiration of his fellow compatriot's display in Sunday's encounter.

“Theo looked sharp from the first minute and he gives us something different,” he said.

“He likes to run in behind, the timing of his runs are perfect and even if they’re not he has the pace to make it up. He was deadly in front of goal too.”

To conclude this post, let me show you something I discovered. In today's game, all our goals were scored by Englishmen having 'W' as the first letter of their name, Walcott and Wilshere. We also played a team with 'W' as the first letter in their name. Thirdly, 'We Won Westbrom' will have the acronym 'WWW' just as World Health Organisation has 'WHO' as its acronym. Could we call today 'The W Day'??

Not also forgetting that Theo Walcott who wears the number 14 jersey scored Arsenal's second goal in the 14th minute of his 14th Premier League appearance for the season. Isn't that fantastic?
