re: Arsenal 2012/2013 Season Long Thread


God am I tired of reading British fan forums and their overvaluing of Ramsey.

He's not be horrible but they have him as one of the top performers over the last few weeks, not even close IMO.

Ramsey
looks like a clumsy Spanish kid (football wise, anyway), right before they say 'hey kid' have you thought about handball? He then promptly goes out and excels at handball.

Clumsy isn't right. He's almost got it, but not quite, and never will.

New rumors from the Mirror: Arsene will have £35+mil to spend in January. May make a run at Falcao...

technique or technical capacity cannot be learned at this age. You have it, or you don't. It is something which is 'corched up' by now.

I think his technique and technical capacity is quite high. Very good touch, improved turn and dribbling ability, great passing range. His problem is that he seems to have not progressed much on the mental side of his game since coming back from his injury. Tries to do too much. I thought he had a very solid game today outside of getting skinned by Diame.

I don't think his technique is in question. He can dribble fairly well, his passing is fairly good, and he can occasionally pull off a trick or two. His biggest problem is situational and positional awareness, something that is a bit of a malaise of British trained central midfielders.

this is what I saw as well. It's all coaching from here on out.

I think Ramsey is serving his role as a squad player perfectly right now. He has come leaps and bounds from last year. He will only get better but he does have his weaknesses. I do not believe he will ever be good enough to become a full time starter for Arsenal.

I'm hoping he becomes the new Ray Parlour.

I think I'm going to England in January. Will try and get tickets to Arsenal-Man City. Hopefully, I will succeed.

I can see that. He does provide something offensively but he isn't very athletic and struggles defensively in 1v1 situations. I still like the guy. He has showed a lot of character to come back to form after that horror injury and then last year's criticisms.

THAT RUN



THAT PASS



THAT SHOT



I know it's not a good angle, but that doesn't mean you just shoot it right at the keeper...

re: Arsenal 2012/2013 Season Long Thread


Actually one of the best options in that situation is to try to go under/through the keepers legs
