Dean Saunders is talking absolute rubbish about Arsenal selling Ramsey to Liverpool

Anagrams and Conundrums. by Neil Watson

If you take the word ‘pundit’ and remove and add a few other letters you can rearrange them to form the word ‘welshbellend’ which I’m pretty sure is a word…..

I read an article today relating to comments made by Dean Saunders about Ramsay and a potential move to Liverpool. He explained that he thought Ramsay would be a great addition to the Liverpool squad because of his ability to cover a lot of ground and scores goals…… ‘Ramsay would be a great squad player’…. I mean really, the captain of the Welsh team, scorer of the winning goal against Chelsea in our last FA Cup win…. making up the numbers at Liverpool.

Dean, mate, tell me something intuitive like Liverpool buying Ramsay would create an amazing link up to Salah or would form a solid partnership with Fabinho…..give me an expert’s insight into what his acquisition would do for Liverpool and why they might want to buy him.

I am a strong believer in geographics playing a significant role in peoples overall intelligence so it doesn’t surprise me that the ‘Welsh Wizard’ would make such ridiculous comments.

He went on to suggest it was Arsenal’s fault that they find themselves in a situation, like that of Sanchez and Ozil of recent past, where they have players entering the final year of their contracts and an opportunity to leave without a transfer fee going to the club.

Arsene Wenger flagged it up last year, and perhaps even before, that more players could now look to do this as they might earn a significant windfall by running down their contracts in this way.

Back to my point, it’s not Arsenal’s fault that they are entering the last year of Ramsay’s contract. Players and agents are in a ridiculously powerful position in football’s current negotiating climate. There is no industry in the world that is run by idiots when so much money is at stake. Agents and lawyers are in general terms way more astute than your average Welsh footballer and know exactly how to position their clients in order to make them as wealthy as possible.

So, in as much as Saunders is financially rewarded for his opinions it would be refreshing if those views were a tad more enlightening or accurate than his recent utter inane drivel.

News just in ‘Saunders believes it would confuse fans if both teams wore the same kit’…

  1. Liverpool fan: You have to look at the bigger picture, Ramsey has a year left on his contract, get some of the press to release blah blah and it leaves him in a better position to negotiate a better contract, Not being nasty, but where would Ramsey get regular football? at Liverpool they have a plethora of top midfielders all vying for a starter role, why would Ramsey come and sit on the bench? YNWA

    1. Phil says:

      Agree with you Pal-Ramsey would not get into your midfield.
      But what is a Mickey Mouser doing on an Arsenal Blogsite?Have the wheels been removed from your own?Or have they just been stolen?

      1. He’s the same lot that come to spoil it for us on the ArsenalFanTV comment section with their nonsense.

      2. Sue says:

        Nice one Phil ?

      3. waal2waal says:

        Far as i know there’s no great contention between Lpool fans and ours. Far as i recall henry said if he ever played for another prem team it would be lpool; far as i know there are lots of southerners/londoner’s who’s passion is with teams based outside of their immediate locality; also the opposite applies.

        Today football is a global game which is why we go see countless fans in the likes of singapore, usa and africa. So the comment on why a northern-supporter is volunteered a comment on an arsenal blog is of backward thinking bordering on regressive.

        1. ozziegunner says:

          ?particularly as James Russell talks sense.

    2. Break-on-through says:

      He’d have walked into last seasons Liverpool first team, he would. The only reason am not sure now is because I don’t know enough about Fabinho or Kieta, and the Liverpool fans don’t know how they’ll get on with this league neither. So it would be stupid to say exactly what way it would go without shooting in the dark. Ramsey’s all action style would please Klopp and the fans over there, very much so, they might not admit it but they’d be raving about him and saying how much better a player he is with them even though he’d be the exact same player.

    3. Phelyx says:

      Ramsey stat is better than everyone in your midfield

    4. Kenny Rolfe says:

      You can have Ramsey for £40 Million, along with the £40 Million we got for the Ox will be like us giving you £50 Million for Karius and Mignolet, sale of the century, we could then put that towards signing Dembele. Mustafi for Vida and we’re done. Make me very happy. Other than that give Barca £40 Million + Ramsey.

      1. Durand says:

        Agree absolutely Kenny. Ramsey can join Ox in the treatment room. Not concerned at all about him going. He’ll hurt us about as much as Giroud off the bench from Chelsea, Walcott off the bench at Everton, and Ramsey and Ox off the bench from Liverpool.

        Waiting for someone to say Ramsey is better than Fabinho because blah blah blah.
        If he goes to Chelsea by Christmas everyone will say Kante is rubbish and should be sold.

  2. Neil says:

    Why are you getting so worked up? The fact is Arsenal have let a number of contracts wind down. If they don’t sign with two years left .. u simply sell them. No other top 6 club has the same issues. So maybe you should stop writing drivel and quit with the “Welsh bellend”. Hardly an insightful article. Stick to your day job.. which certainly isn’t sports journalism

    1. Not really Chelsea has Courtois refusing to sign, Tottenham have Aldeweireld refusing to sign, Man utd have Anthony Martial refusing to sign all remaining with a year on their contracts. You can’t really make someone sign or sell them by force. What we can do is banish Ramsey to the bench or play him in the reserves till his contract expires to make an example out of him. Then good luck to him securing a good contract with a year playing in the reserves.

      1. Kenny Rolfe says:

        Nice one QD, and Neil telling admin to stick to he’s day job.

        1. Dclan says:

          To be fair this IS probably admin’s day job but he didn’t write the article, some person named Neil Watson did and his grasp of good writing skills was put to good use calling someone a be**end.
          Now, I admit I used the F word describing how good Guendouzi was in the last game and quite rightly my post never got on here and I apologised. So how is be**end ok to use? Double standards methinks.

      2. TW14-TH14 says:

        It’s no longer Arsene’s fault and his peny pinching? It’s now a problem with modern football. What an epiphany!

    2. Malch95 says:

      Liverpool just lost Emre Can for free (world champion) LMAOOO what’s are you talking about?

  3. Eddie Hoyte says:

    Russell, Ramsey might not be a Beckham or Gerrard, but if he’s to be on that Liverpool team, he’s not gon be on the bench when fit, that’s what I’m certain of

    1. kstixx says:

      you’re kidding yourself. who is ramsey going to bench in the current liverpool midfield. I’m an arsenal fan but let’s call a spade a spade. if ramsey plays the exact same inconsistent way he has played at arsenal, he can’t make liverpool’s current first 11. is it fabinho or keita or henderson… i even rate the ox over ramsey anytime anyday and still he wasn’t a regular starter at liverpool till he upped his game

  4. ThirdManJW says:

    I cannot believe how many people are getting their knickers in a twist over Ramsey! Am I missing something? Almost a new article daily, with many fans seemingly distressed over this. I could understand the constant worry over the likes of previous greats that were always linked with moves away, such as: Cesc, RVP, Henry, Vieira,…but Ramsey!

    He’s had about two good seasons in ten, is injury prone, and guess what…is currently nursing yet another injury/knock! The guy is so easily replaceable, and the team tactics would actually benefit from his departure. I am sick and tired of watching Ramsey abandon his position, leaving us with just ONE PLAYER in central midfield to deal with counter-attacks, whilst he’s almost the furthest player forward. I wouldn’t mind so much if he was banging the goals in, but he actually doesn’t get as many as you think.

    I’m not exactly a huge N’Zonzi fan, but I like the idea of he, and Torriera just sitting there, protecting the defence, whilst the wing-backs, and the attackers do the business in the final third.

    1. Kenny Rolfe says:

      Make you right Third Man

    2. Tas says:

      I totally agree regarding injury prone we have been more than patient with Aaron and was with RVP that sh!7, if AARON don’t want to sighn sell him to who ever wants him for the right price, remeber Sanchez his still suffering and Walcott who talks about him these days OX the let’s see how quickly he can come back from his injuries,Wilshere I wish him sucess he didn’t want to leave but don’t think he will mount to much as Aaron won’t

  5. mysty says:

    why are we not going for benatia or rugani of juve even if it wil b a loan deal… bonucci is back at turin so 1 of them should be available and wont cost more than 20pounds i guess

  6. Ian says:

    I heard the conversation on the radio. The main point Dean Saunders was making was that Aaron Ramsey’s agent will use the “reported” interest from Liverpool to hike up his client’s wages in any negotiation or leave on a free next year. If he is worth,say,fifty million,the player himsef then pockets half to walk away as opposed to it going to Arsenal.

    Either way it’s a win win for the player

  7. Malch95 says:

    I do rate Ramsey but if we get a replacement then it’s not that bad. Not a major hole in the squad tbh. I do think he can really flourish under Emery

  8. Malch95 says:

    P.s ramsey is 100% better than ANY scouse midfielder, he’d walk into that side. These guys treated Chamberlain like he was a god. Ramsey would absolutely demolish as a no.10 for them

    1. Declan says:

      Yeah, until he got broken again, like he is now.

  9. Jeremy says:

    Dun bother listening to those AH from tt crap team.

    Basically, they were anti-Arsenal.

    However, the club had to take responsibility for dragging the contract to the very last minute.

    Sack that idiot contract guy. Why have him when things dun change.

  10. snowden says:

    Do you really that Arsenal take notice of the mountain of nonsense that the muppet media comes up with? Oh come on!

  11. jon fox says:

    NEIL WATSON, I was alarmed to read that you think goegraphics has an influence on peoples intelligence, with the clear implication being that Welsh folk have lesser intelligence than elsewhere, unspecified, thankfully. Would you say that with other nationalities too? If so, which ones? There are clear overtones of suspected racism in that awful paragraph you wrote which no decent human could let go unchallenged. So I now challenge you to give us chapter and verse on this dinosaur type allegation. After reading that shocking and disgusting “statement ” of yours, I had not the heart or will to read further. You owe this site either a real explanation or a humble apology. Or both!

    1. Declan says:

      Totally agree Jon, this is an awful article. Calling someone a Welsh bellend is ok but for instance calling someone an Irish idiot isn’t (I’m Irish by the way) so I rest my case.
      By the way, if the first comment is by a Liverpool fan, why so much hate, he’s just being honest. It’s not just the article writer that should apologise.

      1. Declan says:

        Meant to also add, yes, not just borderline racist but actually racist.

        1. jon fox says:

          Declan, I totally agree and tried to send you and others a full reply on the evils of racism . But thr Admin disallowed the post, even though it was well considered and moderate. Such is life sadly!

  12. citrenoogeht says:

    NEIL WATSON: I too find the over simplified comments of so called “pundits” like Dean Saunders and other talkSPORT pundits laughable. In fact when it comes Adrian Durham he obviously has an agenda to destabilise Arsenal. Adrian Durham is a bell-end in the truest sense of the word.

    1. Declan says:

      Now, Adrian Durham is as you described him but at least you didn’t call him a ginger English be**end!

  13. Babasola says:

    Liverpool hyped OX last season – our shit player
    Some Arsenal fans even were beginning to say he’s better at Liverpool LOL !!!
    Asides their new signings which we haven’t seen yet, they have nobody better than Ramsey
    Not even Henderson

    1. Dclan says:

      Come on, Ox wasn’t our shit player, he was badly managed and just came good under Klopp when injury struck. I’m a Gooner through and through but some of you need to take your rose tinted glasses off and be honest with yourselves.

    2. Innit says:

      Ox wasnt a sh!t player!
      In fact he was a very versatile player
      He started a lot of matches for us.
      He was our BEST Squad player before he was sold.

      But Wenger misused him. Ox wasn’t that versatile to be played in the wrong positions.
      Wenger played him on the left. Wenger even put Ox at LWB
      He should have played him in the centre or right

      Ox would have stayed if Wenger had used him in the right positions.
      In fact Wenger has played Niles at RB, Flamini at LB, Nelson at RWB, Elneny at CB.
      He believes in too much versatility

      Wenger also screwed around with players mentally ie Podolski, Perez, Joel Campbell
      Podolski was our best finisher a few years ago but Wenger hardly played him even played Welbeck over him and then loaned him out. Same with Perez and Campbell.

      BTW Ramsey isn’t bad either. He is fine as a too. We just need an upgrade to the old Cazorla type quality to be a starter

  14. kumssa says:

    i wish they can take him some of just ramsey hapy i dnt knw y he is not ol that over hyped pls liverpool take him
