He almost joined United, but Wenger promised his Dad that he'd get more playing time at Arsenal, so that's how he signed for us.
Ramsey had potential and he was being estimated on the value of his potential. Before the leg break, he was developing well. But since his return, he doesn't have a clue of what to do. He can't defend. He's can't play the CAM role. He's not adept at playing CM because he loses the ball so damn much.
It's not Arsenal fans ganging up on him. He had his chance last season. It was a golden chance. Cesc and Nasri were gone. Wilshere was out injured. Ramsey had it all to prove his worth and instead he performed hopelessly week in and week out. If it weren't for Rosciky's renascence, we would have been royally fucked. Nobody expects him to be Cesc-esque, but I don't think we're expecting a lot when we assume that Ramsey could find a teammate with his pass and would actually be calm and composed instead of panicking every time he sees the ball.
