Arsenal fans gathered in the Football Transfer Tavern still appear to be state of shock following the deadline day arrival of world class midfielder Mesut Ozil at the Emirates Stadium.
The 24-year-old German international is highly regarded as one of the finest ball-playing midfielders in the world and to see him sign for the Gunners in a club record £42.5 million transfer came as a surprise to us all.
However in the early days of this season, it is Aaron Ramsey who has looked the real deal in the heart of the Gunners midfield. He has scored three goals his last five games and collected two man of the match awards as part of a string of excellent displays.
Following his horrific injury at Stoke City two years ago the Welsh international has struggled to get back to the same level of performance as he had previously emerged as a highly promising talent but now it seems like it could be his year at last.
The latest viral that has managed to make its way into the tavern plays on the supposed ‘curse’ that Ramsey has when he scores a goal. Gaddafi, Bin Laden, Jobs and Houston were all victims of Ramsey’s goal-streak last year.
After he hit the onion bag again for Wales against FYR Macedonia last night from the penalty spot we’re left wondering just who the curse will strike next? It seems that Ramsey’s goalscoring curse is so potent that he has been lined up for a famous Hollywood action thriller.
Gunners in the tavern are now hopeful that the 22-year-old former Cardiff City youngster will continue this fine form for the rest of the season as they look to secure their first trophy in eight years although not so good for those celebrities at deaths door.
