With the squad back to full fitness, with the exception of Koscielny, towards the end of the month, how much playing time will Ramsey get now he appears to be going and if he rarely plays it might entice him to leave in January when we could get a fee or a player exchange for him.
Now fit again I would like to see Maitland-Niles play at times in the midfield 3, in Emery's 4-2-3-1 formation, as he could give better defensive balance to the team.
On a different note, the internationals are so utterly boring, I can't wait until next Monday when we play Leicester.

I wouldn't have played him this season at all unless he committed his future to the club last summer.
He's tried to take advantage of his final year contract and hold the club to ransom as others have before and I'm really pleased the club has said no more to this strategy that's been used to great effect by Theo and Mesut in the past to get outrageous wages based on financial strategy rather than footballing achievements in an Arsenal shirt.
Ramsey should have been told last summer his choices were sign, leave or train a alone for 12 months with no chance of playing for us again.

Dick will play him though and that's fair enough because at the end of the day Dick will stand or fall by what decisions he makes not by the ones others think he should make.

Dick will be judged on results only and there will be no Dick split amongst the fans if he doesn't make us competitive again over the next 3 seasons so he has to do what he thinks is right rather than what's popular with fans.

We really should have made an effort to have sold Ramsey earlier, but perhaps Emery needed him as players were returning after the World Cup finals and needed a break, whilst new players needed to be integrated into the squad.
Having seen him play, perhaps Emery isn't over-impressed and with Gazidis departing a decision was made with the new administration that he wasn't worth the high wages he was after, even of it means allowing him to run down his contract.

To be fair he's a symbol of our past overpaid underachieving cosy club mentality and it's best for everyone including Aaron to part company and draw a line under what was and look to what can be.
Aaron will join a new club like Ox Theo Jack and Gibbs as player who needs to prove himself at a new club to new set of fans while we can continue to dismantle the cosy club as quickly as possible and get back to being competitive in every department in every game and once again seen as a side to worry about apposed to a soft touch who don't like the physical side of the game but are just happy to look pretty against sides who let us play.
