I know that Aaron Ramsey is an easy target at the moment as it seems that 90% of Arsenal fans (including me) are calling for Arsene Wenger to drop him for today’s game against Chelsea (Release the Ox!!!), but I have just found a quote from Ramsey himself where he agrees that he didn’t play well against Wigan.
“It was a disappointing result and we wanted to win that game, being at home as well,” Ramsey said on Arsenal.com.
“I felt that personally and as a team we didn’t perform to what we are capable of doing. I was disappointed with my own performance but hopefully we can just put that behind us and move onto the next game, which is Chelsea.
“I think it is a big game for what is at stake. Obviously they have been doing well recently so they are going to be full of confidence. But we are confident that we can get the result we are looking for. It is going to be a big game in terms of where we are going to finish at the end of the season, we know what we have to do and hopefully we can do it on the day.
“We have done remarkably well to get back into the position we are in at the moment. We were 10 points off Tottenham at one stage and now we are in front so I think we have turned the season around. Hopefully we can finish the job off for the remainder of this season and then next season have a better start.”
Well at least he has admitted that he’s not playing well, but it seems like Wenger is not bothered about Ramsey’s form and keeps picking him. But the one thing about that quote above from Ramsey is the abundance of “hopefully”s. Where is the confidence? Where is the “We WILL beat Chelsea?
We don’t want “hopefully”, we want “certainty”…..
