    Spot on. But the thing is, if there's a vacated midfield, chances of us playing well and him scoring would be low.

    He makes good late runs too. And I'm really fine with a midfielder that is influential in our attack if he is an AM or a B2B midfielder. But what the stats does not cover is the way Ramsey gets himself involved in our attack. Does he make late runs when our attackers have the ball in the final third, or does he scampers forward while we are still building up our attack?

    The latter has happened too frequently and that has also resulted in our poor shape and structure allowing ourselves to roll over and play dead to our opponents. Although I'm suspecting Sanchez did him no favors because when Sanchez went deep and was ball hogging whilst Ramsey made those "late" runs. Anyway, the 13/14 purple patch season and the last game against Everton should be the blueprint for Ramsey going forward. Stay in the middle and play it simple then make a late burst into the box.

    I wonder how much we will be giving Jack then...

    P.S. let's not pretend as if Ramsey's runs from midfield are perfectly timed or have any form of discipline... You spend as much time in forward areas as he does, your efforts will eventually play out.

    I'm still trying to wrap my head around why anyone would want to tie him down on such high wages.

    I'd argue there isn't a single player in our team that we couldn't replace/upgrade and there isn't one single player who is pivotal to our play (with the exception of Özil in both circumstances).

    Obviously not including the new recruits in that.

    I will be mad if we pay him 170k. I only allow 150k. I will stop support Arsenal if they don't go after my finical wishes for them. :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Watch us play.
    i have already explained many many times why Ramsey is key.
    it shouldn't be this hard to understand.

    Arsenal: Rambo, we wanna tie you down. Let’s talk numbers. You’re an important part of this team.

    Ramsey: I’m 27, this will be one of the last big contracts I sign. I feel something in the ball
    park of £250k p/w would be reasonable..

    Arsenal: We’re eager to extend your deal, but we feel £250k p/w is a bit excessive. Özil has just signed an expensive deal and we’re also trying to extend Jack Wilshere’s contract. Can we compromise?

    Ramsey: No disrespect to Wilshere, I rate him highly, but can you honestly say he deserves parity with me? I’ve contribued more- I deserve more money.

    i would argue that Ramsey is irreplasable and that if he becomes available he will attract interest from Real Madrid PSG Munich City and United.
    even Juventus.

    Look at how Chelsea crumbled after Matic left.
    our team breaths thanks to Ramsey.

    Think we will just have to agree to disagree, I'm sure there will be interest from top clubs, but there are many better players out there than Ramsey.

    If Ramsey wants a bigger contract than Jack then I think he's earned it.

    Jack's a top player, but his injuries have stunted his development, and we seriously need to give players contracts based on their performance. Over the years Ramsey has been a more integral piece of our squad than Jack.

    That doesn't mean Jack isn't a quality player or doesn't have more potential than Ramsey, but at 27 a contract is no longer about potential or your emotional attachment to the club.

    Considering his injuries and the fact he was sent on loan last season, I think Jack should understand if he isn't one of the highest paid players at the club. And if he has a great season next year or the year after that, I doubt anyone will object to improving his contract.

    Above all else, we have to make sure that both Jack and Ramsey stay.

    He is very replaceable, he is in a position where there is an abundance of talent.

    There is plenty of talk about Wilshere contract not moving but incentifying, yet Ramsey is asking 200+ ?
    That's just ridiculous.

    I am all for keeping him even though I'm his harshest critic, but it's as a squad player. If he's asking for this kind of pay rise or we get any offer above 35m you let him go.

    He is consistently inconsistent.
    Injured a lot
    Technically inept

    Those things are key and do not warrant 200+/week. There is a lot better out there for that price.

    The ONLY problem with Ramsey is that he tends to be injured quite often.
    He is a very very good player.

    Did waiting with Alexis and Özil not give everyone enough of a headache? :lol:

    Losing Aaron would be a big blow, can't really understand people wanting out our best all around CM.

    I really think it will be measured with Jack's contract.
    They are both around same level.
    Jack will sign for a certain fee first and Ramsey will be offered similar after.
    There will be a limit, if he wants over then i think he will be sold. (don't think it'll be anywhere near 200k)

    Özil as a captain? What are w people smoking? Özil is a follower and never a leader. Would be a very poor choice of a captain.
