Jack Wilshere could easily become an Arsenal great and there is no doubting his capabilities. What makes this energetic young man stand out is his desire and will to do the job, finish the job and see the club rise up.
When Arsenal conceded to Liverpool in the early stages of their 5-1 drubbing at Anfield, the whole team collapsed. The Gunners were in crisis mode and had started losing faith way before they were halfway through the first half.
But Wilshere stepped up.He showed heart and he showed desire. He knew the game was gone but was willing to fight back and not lose hope. Had the whole team played with Wilshere's apparent desire, they could have made a sensational comeback. A comeback similar to the one Liverpool did against AC Milan in the Champions League final in Istanbul.
Wilshere is a captain in the making. A captain of the caliber of club legends Tony Adams and Patrick Vieira. His predecessors were dominant, cheeky fellas - not hesitant to spring into action when needed. They played with heart and desire and passion. Everything that is needed in a captain.
That combination of heart, desire and passion is very evident in Wilshere. He posseses what some call 'SHERE-Power', taking the game to his opponents.
Within the coming seasons and as he grows older, Wilshere will become a dominant player like the one we saw in Paul Scholes. Arsenal can not afford to lose a player like Wilshere. A player who grew up with an Arsenal heart.
