Jack Wilshere is confident that if Arsenal can claim some silverware soon they can go on to win a number of trophies in the next few years.
Arsene Wenger's side have not won a competition since the 2005 FA Cup and have already been dumped out of the Capital One Cup this term, while they lie a distant sixth in the Premier League and face a daunting Champions League last-16 clash with Bayern Munich next month.
The Gunners must come through a third-round replay with Swansea to book an FA Cup fourth-round trip to Brighton, after being held to a 2-2 draw in Wales on Sunday, but Wilshere and his team-mates are desperate to finally taste success.
"We all want a trophy," said the 21-year-old. "As players, when you finish your careers you look back and see how many trophies you have won, so we all want trophies, and the fans want trophies as well.
"We are hungry for trophies and if we get a trophy this year, then maybe it can open the way for a few more.
"We have got a good group of young players here and experienced players as well.
"So, if we get a trophy this year or in the next couple of years, we can really build something over the next few years.
"Obviously it is easy to sit here and say that when we get one trophy it will happen, but we need to get that first trophy. We know how tough the FA Cup is this year and we are still in the Champions League as well.
"So we are in a good position, we just need to make sure we get the results now."
what do you think?
Same old story, in the next couple of weeks arsenal will be out of all competitions...They are already out of capital one cup & not even in the premiership title race... they will be out of the FA cup & then the champions league by the end of feb it will be the same story which has been going on for the last 7 year... the only difference this season will have is that arsenal will not finish in the top 4......
Arsenal may well win the european cup if it's there turn they will no matter who they play like Chelsea. GOOD LUCK
