Honest Ramsey opens up on Arsenal failings

It is not exactly breaking news to us long suffering Arsenal fans that the team is just not good enough this season. After all it is us that has had to suffer the shock defeat at home to West Ham in the first Premier League game and then stumble and stutter since then.

We are still waiting for the Gunners to find the sort of form that made us the best performing EPL club in the second half of last season and there is a growing feeling that Arsenal are once again going to fall short in the attempt to reclaim the Premier League trophy that we have not had at the Emirates in over a decade.

At least our Welsh international midfielder Aaron Ramsey is good enough to be honest about the team´s recent failings, admitting in an Evening Standard report that the Gunners´ performances and results have just not been up to scratch so far and that the players have got to put it right sooner rather than later, hopefully starting tomorrow when we travel to face Spurs in the league cup.

Ramsey said, “It’s not good enough for a club like Arsenal to lose two games in a row,” he told the club website. “Hopefully now we can put things right on Wednesday. It will be a feisty game with hopefully some goals in our favour.”

Ramsey is one of the many Arsenal stars that has been struggling in front of goal this season and we could badly do with him finding the brilliant scoring success that was so impressive a year or so ago. We know that Arsenal can be a lot better than we have been seeing, but how do Wenger and the players put it right?

    Pretty standard media response from an Arsenal player. We’re used to hearing these little sound bites, it would be nicer if we had a team full of competitors that could at least show some level of fight for this football club.

    Bunch of self absorbed celebs lace up for us each week which makes Gabriel look psychotic by comparison for simply being full of fire and passion. Ramsey would do a lot better to shut his mouth and work on his game, pretty sick of seeing him play like he’s Ronaldinho with a fraction of the talent.

      Ramsey isn’t the reason we aren’t playing well this year and he won’t be the reason we win nothing. Squads not deep enough. Ramsey is a great player who shows desire on the field. He could plAy anywhere.

      1. Champagne Charlie says:

        He very much is a reason we’re playing terribly. He floats around the pitch trying flicks and tricks when the game is 0-0, he needs to have a serious look at himself cos for me he shouldn’t make the first 11.

    arsenal misfotune against chelsea because lack of discipline and no leader(as said by howard that arsenal would have played with only one red card if they have a true leader. that is gabriel would not have played wit red card if there is good leader).
    all of this means that almost all the players we get did not have or are with small experience which means we didn`t get champ league players(this last fact should understand intelligent fans or football viewers)

    It seems as if Gabriel will be back sooner than expected. Congratulations gooners!

      I don’t know whether most of us would agree but it feels like we have won more than 3 points…

        Great result! The decision to rescind the card (Dean surely saw what happened to give Gab the red) is making Dean look like the incompetent idiot we all know he is. Hopefully the last time we’ll play against 12!

        1. Johannesburgunner says:

          This makes a mockery of Dean’s officiating and the crap from some journalist called Williams in the Metro. Gabriel has been effectively told: You are not guilty on the strength of video evidence. Now to see what the thug Costa gets?

    I think he needs a rest as well as ozil and A S. Bad news again with FC out but we all new this would happen by AW didn’t? Say no more. I still think he should pick the first team to play the scum in hope that they can find some form. It’s a must win but as norm AW will naff it up

  5. charlie23 says:

    Alexis Sanchez we should rest. play ozil centrally with the intent ofless running more ball distribution. Play cech so that crucial defensive triangle can develope (sorry ospina) we’ll definitely need it if we make later stages of CL and benificial in Pl (they’ll be better time to rest him). Other than that we should start one or two youngsters to start with to hope/aim of establishing a lead and bring more young players in off the bench accordingly.

    1. Twig says:

      Where else has Ozil played this season if not centrally?

  6. charlie23 says:

    On topic- Definite sound bite from Ramsey. Who after THAT season should/could be top 5-10 b2b midfielder in europe

  7. HA559 says:

    He said the same thing before the Chelsea game didn’t he?

  8. zelalem says:

    Paulista is back! currently my second favourite arsenal player after the boss

    1. juhislihis says:


      As soon as he learns the language, you can just put the armband on him! Finally someone who has balls (along with COQ) leading our back 4!

      1. juhislihis says:

        Off topic, we need chant for Gabriel!

      2. Ks-Gunner says:

        wilshere has also the balls but not the right ankles 😐

  9. Arsenal007 says:

    Let Coq is injured.
    Wenger says it’s not serious. That’s what he said about Welbek and Wilshire.
    We cried for a backup during the transfer window…but Wenger said no. I hope this doesn’t come back to bite him on the back side.

  10. Ks-Gunner says:

    Honestly Ramsey, a sane acting manager would send you to the bench, bec you are no RW and you are not good enough to bench the likes of Santi or Ozil.

    A special manager for example, would not even care that many fans like you, but would sell you off, and with that money the manager would buy a proper Winger. Griezman for example.

    Ramsey is one of many examples of failuares Wenger can be adressed with. You dont like the things i say, then dont complain about our failaure as club you *No SWEARING* ( we cool admin, i did the job for you).

  11. HA559 says:

    Stingyman takes another £3m out of the club. Thats where your season ticket and regular ticket money goes, to Kroenke and co.

    1. RWRW says:

      I hope your including Wenger’s 8.5m Salary yer?

  12. Tyno says:

    No, Zouma is the honest guy. Ramsey is only being professional
