agree, would have loved a winner but a draw is well deserved, west brom played well, we should have started with either arteta or flamini, against a team thats going to sit back to defend we should have played only one of them and have slotted in gnabry.

but since spurs got spanked makes the result very bearable

having arteta and flamini both on is way too defensive....I only expect one of them to be playing once we have all players back...

I thought it was a good result. Obviously we can't win every match of the season. West Brom played well, defended as a team, attacked as a team. Wilshere didn't have the best of games, but two moments of sheer quality almost won us the game. We can definitely take positives out of the game, the team showed great quality and mental strength to come back, Szczesny had yet another good game and it's been 3-4 consecutive flawless games for him, and Gibbs is slowly becoming one of my favorites. The international break is coming at a good time this time around. In the grand scheme of things and over the course of a season, an away point at West Brom isn't too bad and we're still top of the league, what's really important is that we respond well after this minor setback.

good result!!!
absolutely ! we go top of the table before the international break. and that'll keep teams thinking.
To be honest, I think it's going to be a tight season, and this point is going to be crucial, as very few teams will take points away from the Hawthorns this season. When you look at the overall context, we're very well placed for the season. One more top striker alongside Giroud in January and we have a title winning season ahead. Sorry for being so abstract after a drawn game, but I see this draw being a very good result in the overall context. Not to forget, the invincible team had 12 draws in the historic season. Not comparing to the unbeatables, but this team is very close to become an attacking threat. So much attacking joy in this team right now !

all things agreed, but I don't think this was a set back. United lost all 3 points to Brom, and this Brom team is looking very good at the moment. Can't help but think like has been said before about the need of a difference making striker in Jan, but we'll into October and looking all set. I think we're going to make things happen this season. COYG !

Be nice to have Cazorla back though, I cant help but think how he might have made the difference today despite the other talents we had playing, Cazorla really does a few things that no one else can.

We are missing Podolski too I've got to say, I miss him.

Fair few players didn't shine today who have been recently, bound to happen sooner or later but still disappointing.

Jenkinson was poor I thought.

Arsenal's Jack Wilshere scores against West Bromwich Albion.

It was very much a tale of two halves for Jack Wilshere in Arsenal's 1-1 draw with West Brom on Sunday.

In the first he could do little right. His passing was off; he was sloppy on the ball and bundled off it too easily; his defensive work was suspect, going to ground to allow an opponent to go past him too easily; and it would have surprised nobody if Arsene Wenger had replaced him at half-time.

The Arsenal manager uses his substitutes cautiously, even at the best of times, and he'll be happy on reflection that he resisted the temptation to make an early change. In the second half Wilshere was probably Arsenal's best player.

Not only did he score a fine equalising goal, he offered a glimpse of what's still to come from him with a quite wonderful pass to Olivier Giroud. Seeing the Frenchman make a run behind the opposition, he dissected the West Brom defence with a perfectly weighted ball, from which Giroud might well have scored but for excellent goalkeeping.

If it had been Mesut Ozil who made that pass, there would have been oohs and aahs about how well the Gunners had spent £42.5 million. As it was Wilshere, it didn't get the same kind of attention.

Some of that is down to the fact that he is struggling for form this season, but Arsenal fans should look at Aaron Ramsey and his revival to ensure patience remains as the young Englishman tries to realise his very obvious potential. It wasn't long ago he was being hailed as the golden boy of English football, but there's little the press like more than to build somebody up because it allows them to knock him back down.

Like Ramsey, Wilshere is being asked to play out of position and he does that without complaint for the good of the team. Arsene Wenger says experience playing wide will serve him well when he moves back into the centre, but in reality he'll play best in his favoured position. Ramsey flourished when moved back into central midfield, it's hard to imagine that Wilshere won't find it easier when he's in a role he feels genuinely comfortable in.

The other thing to bear in mind is that in the last two years he missed an entire season through injury, and a good spell of another with residual problems which hampered his development. This campaign is one of consolidation. For him to really play as well as we know he can, he's got to feel confident.

Part of that is down to what he does on the pitch, but he also needs to have faith that his body can do what he wants it to. When he gets a run of 15-20-30 games under his belt, he'll be more assured that the problems he's suffered are behind him and that will benefit him and his game.

Wilshere is a rare talent, but like many young players is finding it difficult to establish himself in his team. It's also worth noting that the first half at West Brom is the only time he's played badly this season. If he hasn't been up to the standards of Ramsey or Ozil, that's not a surprise. He's still made an important contribution to Arsenal's start to the season, playing a part in all but one game (the Capital One Cup tie for which he, and others, were rested).

Football exists in a kind of bubble, where a player's worth seems to be based on his last few appearances, but people should look at the bigger picture with Wilshere, be patient, and he'll reward them for it.
