Can somebody shine some light on why we don't give Ramsey the contract he want. He is probably top 3-4 in the club, why don't we want to keep him. We would have to pay 40 - 60 mill for similar quality. Just give him the money.

Mesut Ozil.

Agree gunner and also not worth the payrise he wants. We've already been done over by Ozil, ramsey would probably kill us off.

Mesut was a mistake Ramsey would be madness Steve mate.
What's done is done there is no turning the clock back, learn move on try and do better in future, it's the only way.

I think it's a few things Nor.

One of the eds (001 or 2) explained that his general attitude and self-interest has put the club off.

Ramsey runs his socks off but isn't disciplined defensively (and still loves his casual back heels/ flicks which result in quick counters against us) so is probably best used in the hole behind the striker. As it stands, our top earner already has that role. Unless we could find a buyer for Ozil, we couldn't afford to pay them both top dollar and only play one of them. I really like Ozil but if it's not working out, I think Ramsey could do a good job in that role but I just can't see us being able to find a taker for Ozil. But will Emery need that role moving forward? If so, could we get someone better for the team? or better value?

Also, if the club did pay Ramsey what he wants, i guess it would set a dangerous precedent for other players.

Tbf Steve and gunner, I don't think it's all ozils fault he's not dazzled for us. For him to do what he does best he needs complimentary players. Too often he was stuck out wide and asked to play a game that doesn't suit him or with players that don't make the right runs. Ramsey the same actually. Often played on the right wing or next to xhaka, but every run forward exposed the team.

I have no idea why we haven't at least once tried 3 at the back, Kol and Bellerin as wb, Torreira and xhaka in midfield with Ozil ahead behind Laca and Auba. Surely it has to be tried!?

I'd agree Jim that formation and side should have been tried but for Mesut the Arsenal ship sailed long ago unfortunately.
He joined us at the wrong time when we needed people who could carry and drag others out of there 4th place mentality not bring the finishing touches to a title challenge.
Great player great club terrible timing.

Jim - I’ve been asking for that formation all season. frustrating that he doesn’t try it for more than 20 minutes.

We are going to have bare with Dick and see what comes, he's new and he's got his own ideas even if some don't make sense to us.
