When a team is playing well and getting results, there is every reason to imagine how far the team can go. Arsenal have been in scintillating form after recording 10 straight wins on the back of the shock opening day loss to Villa at the Emirates. Star midfielder Jack Wilshere believes there is no limit to what Arsenal can achieve this season as he talked up the Gunners’ chances of winning an unprecedented quadruple (4 glowing trophies).
“We still have Santi Cazorla to come back from injury and if we can keep everyone fit, we are going to be real contenders in all four competitions.
“We have not really had this competition for places over the last few years, so we are all excited and we just have to keep it up now.”
“Why was I on the bench? It was just a formation thing because I am feeling fine,” he continued.
“Tomas Rosicky is coming back from injury and needed a game. I have played a lot of games recently so I was just happy to get on and help at the end.”

That’s a huge dream as no club has ever achieved such feat and for a club that hasn’t won anything in 8 years, fans would just want the drought ended and any trophy would do just that but it seems Wilshere is setting the bar much higher. He isn’t disillusioned considering the fact that Arsenal still have the better part of the first team out (Walcott, Cazorla, Chamberlain, Podolski). If we are playing so well despite their absence, we can only get better when they return.
But rather than dream of a quadruple, I will suggest Wenger sets his sights on a domestic treble, that is very possible with the calibre of players we have on parade. The Champions league is a taller dream and the team needs an element of luck before we can stand a chance of conquering it. With Barca, Bayern and Real still in the mix, Arsenal will still be an outsider for it. Qudruple, treble, double or single, the most important thing is that we stymie the protracted trophy drought this season.
