Aaron Ramsey - Pivotal to Arsenal's Title Hopes?

Aaron Ramsey - Pivotal to Arsenal's Title Hopes?

Aaron Ramsey has perhaps the biggest six months ahead of him, with his side fighting for the league title and his country going to their first major tournament since 1958. He has been moved back into his favoured central role, and has looked like a real asset in recent weeks. The injuries to Santi Cazorla and Francis Coquelin have left the club weakened centrally, but the re-emergence of the Welshman in the centre has been a positive, as he is …

The Premier League's Most Improved Players | Henderson & Ramsey

As the 2013/14 Premier League season draws to a close, we are beginning to see awards at club and divisional level being handed out. Luis Suarez picked up the PFA Player of the Year award, while Eden Hazard picked up the organisation’s Young Player of the Year award. However, these awards often don’t take the league’s most improved players into account and so I have my own opinion on the matter. Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson and Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey win in …

Aaron Ramsey: How Much Do Arsenal Miss Him? | Stats

The wheels have fallen off Arsenal’s title challenge in recent weeks. Supporters have come up with different reasons for this; Arsene Wenger’s tactics have been wrong, the players haven’t tried hard enough, some fans have not supported the team in the way they should… the list goes on. There have been several injuries and that certainly hasn’t helped. There has been one notable absence in the form of Aaron Ramsey, but just how much have Arsenal missed the player that …

Manchester United Vs Arsenal Preview | Key Players, Team News and Stats

One team seem unbeatable at the minute, the other look despondent and are struggling. In recent years this would have been the descriptions given to Manchester United and Arsenal respectively, but times have changed rather quickly. Two well-earned victories over Norwich and Fulham in a matter of days last week saw the terms “kick-start” and “springboard” muttered around Old Trafford, yet a despondent draw away to a poor Real Sociedad side has seen them hushed slightly. A victory in Moyes’ …

Swansea Vs Arsenal Match Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

League leaders Arsenal travel to Wales for the 17:30 kick-off on Saturday to face Swansea, who have picked up their form dramatically of late, despite the midweek exit from the League Cup. Swansea currently sit 9th after 5 games in the Premier League, level on points with four other teams (including Manchester United). They’ve had a mixed start to the season that’s come part and parcel with a tough starting run of fixtures. In the first four weeks they faced Manchester …

Ramsey shines as Özil makes a bright debut | Stats Analysis

Arsenal powered their way to the top of the league (momentarily) with a clinical performance away from home against Sunderland. An early goal by this season's leading goal scorer Olivier Giroud, from an assist provided by new signing *wait for it* Mesut Özil, laid the foundation of The Gunners' victory. A brace by Welshman Aaron Ramsey (who is the joint highest goal scorer in all competitions for Arsenal this season with 5 goals) sealed what was a well-deserved victory for …

Ramsey's almost got it all | A Stats Comparison with Fabregas indicates a key weakness

Like most Arsenal fans, I was amazed by the impressive return to form of Aaron 'Rambo' Ramsey last season. After the horrifying injury he sustained at the Britannia Stadium, fans believed that another bright career had ended on a very ugly note. To the surprise of many, Ramsey made a quick recovery and was back on the pitch within 9 months. The season that followed wasn't a very bright one and it looked like he was headed down the same …
