Are the Euros Aaron Ramsey’s last chance to prove himself?

Aaron was considered to be a budding supertalent when Arsenal beat Man United to his signature all those years ago, but now he is considered to be yet another Arsenal prodigy that has failed to live up to expectations.

He excelled in one season for the Gunners and despite his recent mediocre form, Arsene Wenger has kept faith with the Welsh international in the campaign just ended. Now, with the arrival of Granit Xhaka, it appears that Ramsey will have even more competition for a first team place, especially in his favoured central midfield position.

But Aaron is now aiming to regain some of his lost reputation by proving his abilities again by playing well against the Big Boys of international football. Ramsey said: “We can’t wait to get started now.

“Now that we are here we don’t just want to be rolled over. Every game we play we want to make a statement.

“We’re more than capable of doing that. We’ve worked our socks off to get here and we want to prove we’re more than capable of matching the bigger nations.”

“For me personally I’ve played in some big games but everybody’s eyes will be on this tournament.

“I want to show that I’m more than capable of standing up and proving that I can play at this level. It was of the biggest targets in my career to help Wales to a major championship.

“I’ve finally achieved that and it’s a big achievement not only for me personally but also for the team and for our country.”

This could be his last big chance to prove, either to Wenger or any prospective buyers, that he still retains the ability he showed in his younger days. Now 25, is Ramsey running out of time?

  1. I’m confident that we will see Ramsey give alot more to Wales than he did for Arsenal, this season.

    Just wait and see! … and I hope that we sell him when that £40 million offer comes in.

    1. Hopeful prediction … More likely an anonymous performance in an anonymous team followed by an 8 million bid from stoke rejected by wenger as insulting to his own ego and the welsh people … Worry is that ozil and possibly carzola will get sense of déjà vu and look for quick exit after the euros

  2. He has both the euros and the coming epl season, in my opinion to prove himself, otherwise he may have to fight for a place in the arsenal starting eleven!

  3. It’s a good thing we brought in a midfielder now it will force him to be disciplined when fighting for the CM role. But we need an RW so Walcott and Ox can also stop playing like their position isn’t under threat.

  4. is it possible that LeCoq will take number 2 and Xhaka 32? If not i would like to have new number 2 and 9

  5. Hey!… I know that this is an annoying subject,
    but you all better get used to it, because it’s as real as Kroenke increasing his shares in Arsenal fc. ( 67%)

    Barcelona are coming for Bellerin! With a €30 million offer!
    As a replacement for Dani Alves who is heading to Juventus.
    Its been suggested that Wenger will sell if an offer of €40 million is made. ( Thats £30 million Pounds)

    Whether Bellerin wants to stay or not,
    Arsenal will sell him for £30 million Pounds!

    *Just so you know! ??

  6. No, I don’t think you’ll be seeing the last of Ramsey, even if he tanks at the Euros. Ramsey can have days where he looks every inch deserving to sharing a field with Ozil, if only he could reach down and make this happen more regularly. I’m hoping that the Xhaka signing will make Ramsey work at it harder, iron out his weaknesses before he goes looking for goals, choosing the opportune moments rather than choosing to score at all costs. I believe a very tough energetic and dangerous midfield would be Ramsey at the tip of a three man centre. But we have Ozil, who we want to be a bit more of a no 10. If Ozil was to pick up an injury I would like to see one of Xhaka Cazorla Ramsey ___ Xhaka Elneny Ramsey. I think even mourinhos che would have found this a stubborn midfield, also it gives Ramsey better licence to hunt for goals. We know Ramsey can be good at this, we need to find the missing ingredient. For a while there I thought, we might have groomed one of the very best midfielders in the world (where did it all go wrong).
