Arsenal to tie up Ramsey in new five-year deal


Aaron Ramsey

On the back of renewed contracts for centre back Per Mertesacker and midfielder Thomas Rosicky, Gooners everywhere will be cheered by the news that Aaron Ramsey seems poised to pen a new five year deal at the club.

The Welsh international who had an outstanding early part of the season has been missing from the squad for two months with a thigh injury, but further good news emerged yesterday when it was revealed that he could be in contention for a return to first team action for the midweek trip to Munich when the Gunners seek to overturn a two goal deficit against the European champions.

It will not have gone unnoticed by many pundits that Arsenals’ recent loss of form, that has seen them drop from top place in the league to fourth, is concurrent with the absence of Ramsey, and manager, Arsene Wenger will doubtless be hoping that a return of his midfielder will herald an upswing in fortunes for the club.

The new deal is thought to give Ramsey a 100% increase on his existing salary to bring his weekly wage into the £1000,000 bracket, making ihm the club’s second-highest earner behind Mesut Ozil. The deal reflects the importance that Wenger ascribes to the young Welshman and his importance in the future of the club.

Gunners fans will all b hoping that a swift return to action will now follow and a resumption of the early season form that saw Ramsey net so many goals will drive the team on to a successful closing part of the season.

Football is a game of passions and opinions. If you’re a fan, it’s both your boon and your bane; the drug that you simply cannot live without. Your team will break your heart, make you despair and swear that you’ll give them up. Like some lovestruck fool ensnared by a femme fatale however, you’ll be back again next week. You know it. They know it. Just accept it and embrace it. The lows are bad, but oh, those highs….. Now in my sixth decade, I’ve been a football fan for over fifty years and a Chelsea fan for every one of them. I hold FA Coaching badges and have been a member of the FA Coaches Association for over 15 years, working with numerous teams of varying age and ability levels; it’s the next best thing to playing. That said, I still regularly don the guise of the ‘Panther’, and keep goal for our company team. I’ve written a number of articles focusing on Spanish Football for a different website, and welcome this opportunity to “call it as I see it, without fear or favour” about our game. As I said, football is a game of passions and opinions, so agree or disagree with what I write as you see fit, I’ll passionately tell you my opinion, you tell me yours.
