Aaron Ramsey. The mere sound of his name is enough to send a chill down the spine of even the most seasoned footballer. The Dynamo of Wales, as he's called (by me, just now) is an unstoppable force, cutting through his enemies like a warm knife through softened butter.
Ramsey's trying to prepare properly for the coming season, but that can't be easy when he's beset by doubters from all sides. Clearly unsettled by his prodigious talent and formidable constitution, a couple of his teammates tried to unsettle him yesterday while he was being interviewed after yet another stellar performance.
Haters. Haters everywhere.
It's clear to me that Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are simply feeling threatened by Ramsey's rapid return to prominence. They both put on a brave face, but they know their days of usefulness are numbered - as after Aaron Ramsey achieves his final form, there will be no need for a team. Just Ramsey, the ball, and a trail of vanquished foes behind him. Just as soon as he gets that footspeed up a bit.
