It’s a sad day at the Emirates Stadium, and for a lot of Arsenal around the world today. During his press conference earlier today, Unai Emery announced that Aaron Ramsey’s hamstring injury is season-ending, meaning he has already played his last game for the Gunners. After over 350 games, Ramsey’s 11-year run at the Emirates has come to an end.
His record is as follows:
3 FA Cups
2 Community Shields
2x Arsenal Player of the Year
Tributes have been pouring in all over social media, and for good reason. “Rambo”, as he became known amongst the fans, has been one of our most divisive players over the years - either loved or hated. Regardless, his influence at the club is undisputed, providing a shining light during some of the dark periods of Wenger’s final years. Patrick Timmons has written a brilliant piece on Ramsey’s influence at the club, and I definitely agree: in my books, goes down as an Arsenal legend.
Thank you for all the memories, Rambo.
You will be dearly missed.
(Just as a bonus, my favorite Ramsey goal was easily this strike vs. Galatasary. Screamer.)
