Ramsey: The Catalyst for Progress

  Aaron Ramsey of Arsenalcelebrates his goal during the UEFA Champions League group F match between Olympique de Marseille and Arsenal at Stade Velodrome on September 18, 2013 in Marseille, France

What a difference a season makes it was this time last year that one Aaron Ramsey’s days seemed numbered at Arsenal. The fans were on his back with every single pass that went astray. It seemed that another young mercurial talent had been the victim of a callous tackle that would harm the progression of a promising playing career.  This happened a few seasons before at Stoke back in February 2010. 

 

It just goes to show what dedication and perseverance can help you achieve. Their was a lot of rehabilitation and thanks to the foresight of medical staff Ramsey went under the knife straight away. The Club obviously had previous experience with the tragic Eduardo injury just one year before (he has never fully recovered). There was a massive danger this could be just as disappointing. 

 

This Summer many fans saw a dramatic change in Ramsey after having a very impressive pre-season where for me he was the most improved player at the club putting in some notable contributions concluding in an encouraging display beating Man City 3-1.

 

Aaron Ramsey has kicked on from that performance and could very well be the catalyst for a return to silverware for Arsenal that will be very eager to avoid another trophyless season.

Ramsey’s record speaks for itself contributing 6 goals in 7 appearances already in this campaign it is not just the goals he has brought to the team. His work rate has been phenomenal, covering every blade of grass and has also shown some very good organisational skills just in front of the back four. He has been the one player that has taken games by the scruff of the neck and made things happen, he makes Arsenal tick at the moment. The Ramsey / Wilshere debates seems to rumble on but with Ramsey’s recent performances their is only one winner on this form. 

 

Many pundits predicted that with the arrival of Mesut Özil that this would hamper Ramsey’s

 progress this has not been the case, he will surely only improve training with such a natural footballer.

 

Fans and Journalists alike were openly encouraging Arsene Wenger and the board to Invest heavily in the squad which to a certain extent they have with the capture of Mesut Özil on deadline day, However it would just be steeped in Irony if a major answer to the clubs problems was already on the payroll. Only time will tell if this will be the season that Arsenal end the drought but with the start they have made this season it is a good bet that this could be the season.
