The north Londoners have now gone six years without adding a trophy to cabinet at the Emirates after losing the League Cup final to Birmingham, Jack Wilshere insists it will be ‘100 per cent disaster’ should Arsenal fail again next season.
Should Arsenal have another dull season, this could easily spark an exodus of players including manager Arsene Wenger.
"It will be a 100 per cent disaster if we don't win a trophy next season," said Wilshere.
"We know that. The fans feel it. We feel it. We just need to win a trophy.
"Arsenal are a big club and we need to be winning trophies. We need to win them to keep our big players.
"We must be more aware and have a bit more aggression. We've got some players that can do that but we have to go as a team."
The Arsenal man suggests Arsenal need to follow example of Manchester United with questioning decisions made by referees.
"It's no use just Robin van Persie going because it looks like it's just him having a go at the ref. If we all get round him...
"You just see the other teams do it and you think 'we need to do it as well'. Man United are the best at it. They get round the referee.
"We have to be more of a team and be more aggressive and show more authority."
