Yeah but could you get into the German team?
Maverick mate, it’s the club’s jobs to bring young players along. The best young players typically are impatient and have unlimited self belief. The shit ones like Ox, aside from just being shit, will spend year after year saying in cute little interviews how they’re looking to add goals to their game.
I agree his attitude hasn’t been exemplary but young players aren’t always, and it’s hard to blame him after having West Brom chosen as his loan club after a year without playing football and getting there and thinking why, when I’m desperate to play football again, have they loaned me to a rugby club?
In short we botched his development pure and simple, you have to really be in denial to not accept that fact/blame it on him.
@ronniec not really, I was always the one who didn’t rate Ramsey, when he had that season in 13-14 of course I rated him, because, well, he was really fucking good that season and pretty decent in parts of 14-15 too, but with time it’s been clear his real level. You must not have been reading me for the last year, I gave up on him when he battled Flamini for Semi-Footballer of the Match over multiple weeks.
like I said, and people talked shit because it happened to be during the olympics (even though it was obvious if you watched him for Arsenal and Arsenal youths): the guy just has bucketloads of end product.
Hopefully he can’t beat skinny Serge Gnabry out for his spot when he goes to Bayern and we can buy him back.
