RAMSEY GETS OLYMPIC CALL-UP

With the horrors of the broken leg suffered last season Aaron Ramsey and Arsenal fans can look back at a successful year for the 21 year old. At such a young age his achievements have been significant, including becoming captain of his national team and becoming an increasingly important player for his club side.

The Arsenal midfielder has gone from strength to strength this season and improved significantly. There are still questions over his game and many improvements need to be made, but should he and Jack Wilshire be able to avoid injury and form a partnership, the pairing may become one of the most formidable midfield pairings around.

The biggest danger for Ramsey is another poor start for Arsenal, in fact when Arsenal have been on poor form this year, many fans have been quick to point out Ramsey’s poor performances, it seems he may well become a victim of the blame culture which is becoming ever present in the modern game. The Arsenal Manager has also received some undeserved criticism from his owns fans this year despite a third place finish. Ramsey’s performance this year although at some points inconsistent has certainly been a step in the right direction and it seems likely that he will be a major part of Stuart Pierce’s Olympic squad.

With Jack Wilshire remaining an option for a return from injury in time to compete in the 2012 Olympics as well, this could see the birth of their partnership and I wouldn’t be too surprised to see them both return to their club with a gold medal and as an established pairing ready to push on from last season. For this reason Arsenal fans should be watching the Olympic football very closely as an insight into the future of their club.

RAMSEY PREDICTS BRIGHT FUTURE

Arsenal's young midfielder Aaron Ramsey has said that he is almost certain that the youngsters at Arsenal will definitely come good in the future. A lot has been spoken about the Arsenal's youth policy - it has been one of the reasons for Arsenal to be sustainable in the face of many clubs spending huge amounts of transfer fees.

Despite spending only limited amount of money, Arsenal have been able to keep up with the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City near the top of the table. Even though they have not won the title for seven years now, Arsenal can at least be confident that they will be self-sufficient under Arsene Wenger.

One of the main reasons for Arsenal to be self-sufficient under Arsene Wenger is the plethora of youth players at the club. Welsh star Aaron Ramsey also used to be one of the young players, but he has now grown up into a magnificent first-team player. Now, the Welsh midfielder believes that it is about time Arsenal's youth players began showing their quality, and it will not be long before Arsenal start charging for the titles. However, sceptics may say that it has been the reason for players like Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri to depart from the club, while Robin van Persie may also follow suit in the summer.

"There's plenty of young talent there and we have to bond even more and gel as a team throughout the years. It'll only make us stronger because you realise what to do on the pitch Hopefully, we'll make it successful for many years. It's important that you have that core, that you've been together for a few years and you understand each other', Ramsey said when asked about the quality of the youngsters at Arsenal.
