Many, many fellow Gooners will disagree with what I have to say, but I feel that this Summer Arsene Wenger should cash in on inconsistent midfielder Aaron Ramsey while he still has some value.
Yes it could come back to haunt Arsene but this season Ramsey has been blowing hot and cold, and far too often it has been the latter.
On Sunday he only came on for the remaining 12 minutes but during that time he managed to squander a superb chance to double Arsenal’s lead when he selfishly blazed wide with Robin Van Persie in acres of space.
Of course for a while fans of the Welsh captain could point to his horrific injury he received at Stoke last season which I agree affected him on his return, but it has been over a year since his comeback and that excuse has long gone.
Registering just three goals from midfield in 39 appearences is not an amazing record from someone who gets as many chances as Ramsey does and with Tomas Rosicky’s improving form and Alex Song’s consistently superb performances Ramsey is becoming the weak link of the midfield trio.
I am sure that when Jack Wilshere finally returns from injury Wenger will go with Song holding midfield and Rosicky and Wilshere playing just in front.
He cost the club £5,000,000 when we took him from Cardiff nearly four years ago and now his value is probably still above what we paid for him, but if his performances this season continue through to next then it will drop, rapidly.
If Wenger was to sell the former Bluebird and invest the money in improving the squad then I for one would be delighted.
Thanks for all you have done Aaron, but for me, your time gracing the Emirates pitch is up.
