Jack Wilshere Makes Statement Which Will Hurt Arsenal Fans

Wilshere opted to leave Arsenal when his contract expired this month despite having been offered a new deal by the club.

Jack Wilshere has copped plenty of flak from some sections of the football supporting public for choosing West Ham United over a range of other Premier League clubs - including ambitious top flight newcomers Wolverhampton Wanderers.

While stressing on the subject of him and his family being supporters of the club, he said, "People will have seen the picture of me in a West Ham shirt, and I've got good memories of my childhood supporting West Ham, watching them at Upton Park".

"I think I must have been about six or seven, my whole family were West Ham fans, I was a West Ham fan, still have a soft spot for them of course". He will join up with Pellegrini's squad for their pre-season training camp in Switzerland.

IHOP changes its name back from IHOb
International House of Pancakes flipped the "P" in their name to a "b"; Jeff Flock explains what the "b" in IHOb stands for. The pancake chain has acknowledged that last month's name change was just a publicity stunt to promote its hamburger menu.

But the lure of playing in front of the West Ham faithful under new Hammers boss Manuel Pellegrini proved too good for Wilshere to resist.

Should he avoid any more major injuries in his career, the 26-year-old could be a crucial player in the heart of West Ham's team this season.

Wilshere - whose contract ran out at the end of June - chose to look for a new club when new Gunners manager Unai Emery told him he would not be a first choice next season.

When Jack Wilshere left Arsenal this summer, nearly in tandem with father-figure Arsene Wenger, speculation about his next destination was rather timid in comparison to the rumours surrounding players of his ilk. It is telling that none of the Premier League's traditional "big hitters" appeared to be interested, while he never really seemed to be in contention for a place in England's World Cup squad either.
