Do You Know Who I Think We Need At Newcastle United?

Do You Know Who I Think We Need At Newcastle United?

Do you know who I think we need? Jack Wilshere.

There, I`ve gone and said it despite the fact I`m sure a fair few of you have fallen off your chairs and probably taken in a large gasp of air.

I know, among many fans not just of our club, that the Arsenal man divides opinion and isn`t everyone`s cup of tea.

I`m also well aware, as is most of the football-watching country, that he isn`t exactly what you`d call bullet-proof.

However, I daresay the worst of his injuries are behind him with him certainly playing more football recently than the years up until now he could be worth a punt.

His contract is up this summer and with the Gunners disintegrating at the moment I`ve got a feeling Rafa should go and work his magic.

Though we are far from where we were at the start of this millennium, we`ve got a better chance of getting there compared to most in the lower half of the table.

Certainly, behind the top six I see no reason why we can`t be best of the rest - providing Ashley leaves - because we`re more attractive than Big Sam and Everton for sure.

We just need to stay up this year - prove that we`re back in the big time - and then we have the jump on some top players over a lot of other clubs just because of who we are.

We`ve spent too long in the shadows and not fulfilling this great club`s potential so let`s start getting ambitious.

Wilshere wouldn`t solve all our problems, of course he wouldn`t, but it`s the statement it puts out that we`re not hanging around just to be relegated.

We all know what the owner`s like, that is the sticking point, and therefore perhaps I`m being wishful or unrealistic but if the midfielder is still free in the summer, then let`s go for him.

He`s cheap Mike, can`t you see that?!

And, if he`ll go to Bournemouth, he`ll surely come to Tyneside.

Would you like Wilshere in Black and White? Let me know in the poll!
