I saw the People linking us to the very promising Jack Wilshere on Sunday and thought very little of it. I suspect our need in January would be for a striker to finish the chances rather than a creative midfielder to make them. Knowing just how good Wilshere is, you wouldn’t turn your nose up at the prospect, though, would you? It would be a shame if our continued progress under Roy Hodgson scuppered Fulham’s chances of snaring one of English football’s brightest prospects, even if it would only be on loan. A few Arsenal loanees have flourished at Birmingham in the past too.
