The injury room picture of Wilshere (with a mic) may need some upgrade. Like adding bandage ...

Well...Dean says it was a tackle from Gabriel, but how would he know? Pure guesswork, as usual.

ITK watch!!

What links does he have that you're aware of Ix?

As far as I'm aware, both Dean and Geoff have the same mate, which is one of the low-tier employees at Colney. This guy doesn't know anymore about transfers than we do, but he is privy to starting line-ups about 30-45 minutes before they're officially announced (because it's posted on the internal system apparently), and occasionally he picks up rumours at Colney that have some weight to them.

For the most part though, it's all cleverly designed cold-reading guesswork. Both Dean and Geoff constantly delete tweets that never came true, and not many call them out on it. And like every other ITK they are intentionally vague. Best example is Geoff's pre-Özil tweet: "Arsenal will sign a German international".

The only reason I know this is because I was in a meeting related to a potential MiniManager investment with someone who has known Geoff for a long time, and he told me all sorts of juicy things.

That's pretty interesting and I figured as much. Nobody knows a thing outside of that Arsenal boardroom.

Well, that's another season injured / on the bench for Wilshere. Even if fit he'd struggle to get a regular spot. Now it's impossible. They say it's 2 months out, but knowing Arsenal, he'll probably he out til Christmas.

Wilshere = Diaby 2.0
