Ramsey didn't do himself any favours if he wants that big contract. Can't say I'd miss him too much if he leaves, at least we'd see a bit more of Ainsley M-N if so.

Eds, are the press rumours about Ramsey (that he wants Ozil-level money and will leave to get it) true? Apparently we're offering him parity with Aubameyang but I doubt he'd hit that kind of payday elsewhere much less Ozil's 350k/ week.

{Ed001's Note - he does want a huge pay rise, not sure of the actual amount but it is likely to be the same as Ozil as he has often made remarks which are seen as bitter with regards to Ozil. A number of people who have played and worked with him believe him to be jealous of the German and how much he earns.}

When a player rates himself higher than anyone else on earth rates him and thinks he's worth superstar wages despite never actually performing like a Superstar there can only be one sensible conclusion, ta ta Aaron.
He only ever plays half a season anyway and the fact absolutely no one came in for him last summer all speaks for itself.
Personally I put him in the Nicolas Bendtner catogary because didn't he also claim to be the world's best striker but also have trouble finding anyone to take him once we got fed up with him and let his contract run out.

I've always thought the huge disparity between what players earn couldn't be good for a working environment, is there often much resentment towards higher earners? And does it create much friction? I know you have to pay the highest wages to get the best players otherwise someone else will and they are paid on ability over hard work. But if you're on 1/ 3 or 1/ 4 of someone's wages and give your all every week while those earning more don't seem to try it must get frustrating and wonder why you bother. It wouldn't happen in a normal job, in a kitchen if the head chef was doing the least work on the highest wages he would never get away with it.

{Ed001's Note - not usually as the top earners tend to be the better players. It used to happen a lot in the lower leagues when someone was after a late payday and drifted down the divisions. These days it is not so bad.}

Ramsey is 27 years old and still hasn't nailed down his position for arsenal. What is his position? For any other team he is a massive risk. He has never burnt it up at arsenal.

We made a massive mistake with that Ozil contract but you can understand why the club aren't keen to repeat it. Bizarre from Ramsey if that's true. Cheers Ed001.

{Ed001's Note - Ramsey thinks he is a key man for Arsenal, you saw how he responded to Sanchez - refusing to pass the ball to him - Ramsey is immature.}

must be increadibly frustrating at teams that get relagated like sunderland, with players on massive wages who just give up because they don't want to be there, but don't quite give grounds for dissmisal any players actually trying must be fuming.

A risk on a free?

What's it matter to Ramsey what Mesut or any other player earns, it's none of his business.
He needs to take a good look at all the people struggling to put food on the table and a roof over their family's heads and then take a good long look at himself and think " wow how fortunate am I? "
Even a premier league footballer who earns 20k a week, 1 million a year for just 5 years (a low wage in premier league terms) is set for life and can retire in their early 30s and live a very comfortable life never needing to do another days work ever again, and good for them too no one should feel the need to apologise for being fortunate and privileged but when they start complaining about it there is something very wrong with them.
Aaron Ramsey is in the top 1% of earners in the entire world on his urgent wages and when your in the very top 1% of 8 billion people and still jealous of someone who is higher up that top 1% then you then you need to take a serious look at yourself.
Aaron Ramsey needs to count his blessings rather than other people's wages, he'd be a much happier and more likable person if he did.

A risk on huge wages! .

Kcider, we can sign him on a free but the money he wants is a risk and not worth it. Why should it be different for anyone else?

I believe that decisions in respect of contracts have to made at least 2 years before the expiry of the existing contract. This can be problematic as a club has to commit itself for the long term to players that may go off form, suffer serious injury, become troublesome, etc. The problem in the modern game is that top players can hold the clubs to ransom, as all the cards are in their hands.
In Ramsey's case, he has nothing to lose by running his deal down. Arsenal can cave in and pay him similar wages to Ozil, try to sell him in January - which he can block by refusing to go or simply allow the contract to run down. The cost of keeping him on Ozil's wages is a staggering £91m over 5 years and at the end a 32 year old Ramsey will have little value. The best thing is to try and sell him in January, if possible. A revitalised Iwobi is an ideal replacement for Ramsey, as he gives as much to the team. In the final decade of Wenger's reign we simply had too many number 10's and this is being addressed by Emery, with some departing and we have signed or will sign players that have a different aspect to their game.
