Aaron Ramsey had one great (half?) season with Arsenal in 2013-14, scoring loads and getting into dangerous positions, but since then it would seems confidence and injury issues have been getting in the way of him getting back amongst the goals, in fact in the last campaign he scored just ONE League goal, but did come good in the new formation, scoring the winner in the Cup Final, although it was a header rather than his customary screamer from outside the box.
Hopefully this will give him the confidence to kick on in the new season, and he is feeling good about the new formation giving him the freedom that he gets when he stars for Wales. Ramsey said: “The system suited a lot of players. It gives us a platform to build from. I felt good in that formation – it freed me up to get forward a lot more and get into some dangerous positions so I really thought it worked for us towards the end of the season,”
The Welshman is also used to spending quite a lot of time in the treatment room, but he hopes those woes are now over, but he won’t set himself any targets for the coming months. “With this new formation I want a long season.” he continued. Hopefully an injury-free season. I know what I am capable of doing. If I can stay fit then hopefully it will take care of itself, but no targets, no.”
We Arsenal fans are used to false hopes at the beginning of every season, but I seriously hope that Ramsey can really kick on this season and become the ‘complete midfielder’ he was touted to be a few years ago. If he wants to become the new Lampard then he will have to start knocking them in on a regular basis. The Chelsea and England great scored 20 every season for 5 years if i remember correctly…
Can Ramsey become that good?
