Arsenal have given an injury update on their midfielder Jack Wilshere, and it's honestly so predictable that it's difficult to read.
When Brazilian midfielder Gabriel inadvertently injured Wilshere in training before the Community Shield, many Arsenal fans rolled their eyes and expected to maybe see Wilshere in action sometime in late October, but it now it has been announced that Jack requires surgery, and won't be seen on a football pitch until 2016.

Wilshere's luck with injuries has been absolutely atrocious in recent years, and unfortunately it seems to be purely down to his style of play, as he always seems to invite challenges with his dribbling style of touching the ball ever so slightly too far ahead of him.
When he's fit, Wilshere is a vital component of the Arsenal aide, and their win percentage is significantly higher, but he is spending more time in the physio room than on the pitch, and Arsenal fans are fed up:

Just declare Jack Wilshere clinically dead and then regard any improvements from there as an "injury boost".

.@talkSPORT I've been saying for 2 years #ArsenaI should sell Wishere while he still has perceived value. Now he has bench value.

“@FFArsenal: Jack Wilshere to undergo surgery on his left fibula. 3 months out. Get well soon @JackWilshere” that's about right

There are legends, and then there are "legends." Jack Wilshere now falls into a category that includes Perry Groves and Emmanuel Eboue.
