Ramsey, Wilshere, and Song Forming a Partnership
If you haven’t seen the article on Arsenal.com Aaron Ramsey talks about his growing relationship with midfield partners Jack Wilshere, and Alex Song. The three have started all of their preseason games together and have looked quite dangerous throughout. Ramsey coming off of half a season after suffering his horrific leg break will be looking to break into the first team this year. Ramsey had this to say about his partners:
“Me, Jack and Alex are starting to build a relationship and are doing well together, We’ve shown that we are more than capable of playing together and are connecting together. It is an interesting combination and one that I hope I can be apart of. In the middle, we did well [against Cologne] and it was a good work-out.”
With talk of Nasri not extending his contract and leaving for free this year, it really is Ramsey’s year to break into the first time. Personally I think Nasri should rot in the reserves all year while we bring in someone to rotate with Ramsey but it will be up to him whether he can keep his spot in the midfield.
From the three preseason games, we were always far more dangerous with this combo on the field. Ramsey has made a few mistakes but they have done a lot of running and it’s still only preseason while Wilshere has fascinated many with his great passing, mazy runs, and creativeness. Song has had a relatively easy preseason playing with these two who work so hard playing box to box.
