Chelsea Message Board
I didn't laugh when we signed him as I remember that 30 yd rocket he scored against Newcastle a few years ago.
What I do own up to, is having spent the last two season thinking that Ramsey would never shrug off the ghost of the tackle that broke his leg. It has affected his play and development for the last two seasons, but he seems to have found himself and that ability that lead to Wenger buying him in the first place is now there for everyone to see again.
The only thing that still leaves a niggle in my mind is our lack of defensive options. If Sagna, Merts or Kos get injured we will be down to bare bones. Djourou, Squilacci and Miquel have all gone and Verm is long term injured. Flamini may be able to play to fill a role, but we should not be relying on utility when fighting for silverware. We should have world class/position specific cover.
Hopefully Arsene wont get shy with the budget promised for January and he get proactive ahead of the hard slog that is always February/March for many teams
