Aaron Ramsey – “It’s great to have the fans back with us”

The Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey is just in the process of completing one of the major goals of his life, which is to help his country reach a major tournament Finals. Yesterday evening they could have secured their place if they could have just nicked a goal against a very defensive Israel, but even with a strong longrange shot in the final stages Ramsey could not quite pull it off.

Wales still have two opportunities to gain that vital point. First they face Bosnia away, and then there final match is at home to the European minnows Andorra. Ramsey was extremely pleased with the support of the home crowd and is looking forward to big celebrations after the last game in Cardiff as they qualify for the first time in 57 years, but he is confident that they can secure the point before then.

Ramsey was quoted as saying: “We feel we can go to Bosnia and grab all three points, that’s the confidence in this team at the moment,”

“Hopefully we will be able to do that and have a successful end to what has been a great campaign.

“Sometimes it is a bit easier playing away from home because teams are trying to attack and score, which is a bit more of an open game.

“We saw against Israel it can be quite difficult when a team has 10 or 11 players behind the ball, but we are delighted to have the fans back with us.

“The noise and passion they have shown has been incredible and we hope they will come back for Andorra and there will be plenty to cheer about after that game.”

The Euros would not be complete if a brilliant player like Gareth Bale, backed up by Ramsey, was not on show on the top stage of European football and I would love to be in Wales to celebrate with them. That will be a monumental party!

    Olivier Giroud was booed from French fans and he gets a bashing from Arsenal fans all the time,

    I don’t see why we are bashing him or booing him, his doing his best to his ability and he does a reasonable good job most of the time,

    is he good enough for arsenal ?? May be as a second striker and his defenetly good enough for 4th spot, it’s not his fault if Arsen thinks his the man for the job, I feel sorry for him strikers one level above him earn
    twice as much as him

    So guys enough OG bashing if he losses confidence we are snookered his our only striker so let’s get behind him until next transfer window

      If you remember, Arsene said almost the same thing a few days back. What he is concerned about is that if you say a player is not good enough that might shatter his confidence over the course of time. We all have been saying this for 3 years and Giroud had been improving as well at a normal rate but now if this continues then he will not care to improve and be content with what he is doing.

    Giroud getting booed by the French fans for missing easy opportunities hopefully will not affect him against Stoke

    Hopefully he will have a point to prove and score for us On Saturday.

    Losing Podolski, Sanogo, Akpom and Welbeck’s injury makes Giroud especially important and we need to support him.
