‘He’s a character’ – Pundit names Arsenal star as signing of the season

Jamie Carragher has named Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale as his signing of the season so far.

The English shot-stopper arrived in the summer to mixed reviews, with the majority not understanding the stance taken by the club to bring him in for such a heft fee.

That supposed fee is now considered an absolute steal, a bargain, and Sky Sports pundit and former Liverpool FC captain Carragher has gone as far as to name him as the Premier League’s signing of the season.

I don’t think you’ll get much argument from any Arsenal fans, with many of us also surprised by the impressive leap that Aaron has made into the fold.

He’s proving to be a leader in the team, in the manner in which he plays, communicates, and pushes his team-mates, and there are very few summer signings who could even touch him throughout the entire division. Emmanuel Dennis of Watford has also been one who has impressed, but I feel that another Gunner in Takehiro Tomiyasu could well be the closest to him from the Premier League’s summer signings, although neither have done as much as Ramsdale thus far.

Does anyone else deserve to be in contention for signing of the season?

    1. From a point of view? Yes, it’s telling. I however can confidently tell you that teams have been successful in the past because of one single beast they have manning their goal post. If he keeps cleansheet every game(which is impossible anyway) and we fail to score every game, we would be down low, especially after conceding 9 before his arrival. In essence, the entire team has done some job.

      The team is only just trying to put it together. Good individuals here and there is a good thing I believe.

    2. Yeah. I remember when Arteta and the board were getting the stick for signing a goalie whose last two teams were relegated with him in the post. Fans, pundits and media, didn’t mind that I those two seasons with the two teams, Ramsdale was voted player of the season.
      By implication, he was the brightest spot in rather disastrous campaigno for both teams.
      A team is made up of different individuals and with their respective personal traits and character. Ramsdale has a consistent character of being all that and exceptional. It’s not a new found character. The media never paid much attention and worse, Arsenal was signing him.

      Hats off for Arteta. The signings of this season have all being great despite the hounding and jesting surrounding their acquisition.

  1. I agree with Jamie. He’s been astounding since he signed for us. We paid good money to get him and to have a good team, u need a top goalkeeper.

    Mendy is Chelsea’s best player in 2021 season. Take it or leave it!!!!

  2. Incredible signing by Arteta /Edu….We have rarely seen such an impact arrival may be since Ozil(in terms of lifting the mood of the club)…
