I dunno, anyone who argued that he was good at the beginning of the season is still wrong. If you just said he has potential when played in the correct position then sure
I've always said his play was indicative of a lack of confidence, not an inherent lack of quality.
Here's what I wrote in December.
For all the Ramsey bashing, which is mostly deserved, a player of his mold is absolutely key for our type of midfield. We desperately need a runner who makes runs into spaces. Ramsey does that really well, but his problem is that he is a touch too late on his passes. A notable example is in the Man U game, where he combined with Sagna to beat Evra, but took a touch before he tried to release a pass, when it would have been better to release the cross first time to Giroud who had about a yard of space. That is indicative of confidence, and not of an inherent lack of quality in my opinion, and it has been something that has plagued this side all year.
Since the beginning of the new year he's been one of our best players. While he was frustrating last year, he still created 55 goal scoring chances, which was only second behind RvP in 2011-2012. This season he's been the new Ray Parlour, playing DM, AM, RM, LM, and RB. Do we have a player as versatile as this? I still think he's a touch late on passes that require intricacy, but he's become really good at breaking up play and recycling possession, as well as being our best presser of the ball.
The hate Ramsey got was disproportionate to his actual play. But again, I'm not a myopic fan. While his play disappointed me at times, I still saw plenty of good things. I remember Arsenal fans on the internet bemoaning the fact that Ramsey signed a new contract. That pissed me off because if not for the injury, Ramsey would be considered one of the top young midfielders in Europe.
