‘Awful’, ‘Sell’ – Some fans slam Arsenal star after poor display vs Watford

Some fans have taken aim at Aaron Ramsey on social media following his disappointing performance during Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Watford this afternoon.

Ramsey was under the microscope today after it emerged the Welsh international is set to leave Arsenal either in January or on a free transfer at the end of the season after talks over a new contract collapsed.

Unai Emery still chose the midfielder to start in the No.10 role against Watford this afternoon so understandably supporters were keeping a close eye on Rambo to see how he responded to the contract news.

Unfortunately, the 27-year-old had a game to forget as he struggled to have any positive influence on the match and failed to make any significant attempts to create chances at goal.

To be fair, the whole Arsenal team were below par during his time on the pitch but perhaps tellingly, we only stepped things up when Ramsey was replaced by Alex Iwobi midway through the second half.

Iwobi and Danny Welbeck changed the game as they injected some pace out wide and with Mesut Ozil moved in to the No.10 role that Ramsey had vacated, we looked far more balanced. Iwobi set-up the opening goal while Welbeck and Iwobi played a part in the build up to Ozil scoring the second that secured a vital three points.

Some fans have taken to social media to say Ramsey was ‘awful’ today and suggest that Emery should not only replace him with Iwobi in the starting line-up from now on but the Welshman should be sold.

Ramsey was poor today, there is no doubt about it, and his inclusion in the No.10 certainly unbalances the team as Ozil is shunted out wide so it’s time for Emery to make a decision. I personally still think Rambo should be played deeper alongside Torreira instead of Xhaka but his contract situation makes it difficult to keep him as a starter this season.
