We spend a lot of time praising the work of Unai Emery, and it’s not exactly difficult to do so when you take a look at Arsenal’s 19 game unbeaten run. The guy has turned this team upside down, and we’re all in for the journey. Alas, in the wake of the Gunners’ win over Tottenham at the weekend, reports seemed to indicate that Emery would be holding firm on Aaron Ramsey’s contract situation even after a handful of good performances as of late.
That led us to wonder something: is Unai Emery being stubborn? After all, it’s no secret that a lot of Arsenal fans would like to see the Welshman stay, regardless of whether or not that’s the best possible move for the club.
Ramsey’s saga has left a lot of fans feeling rather empty about the whole thing, but when push comes to shove, people are still going to end up talking about the whole thing – and how could they not? He’s one of Britain’s best midfielders (yes we did just say that out loud) and there’s a chance that he could leave the Premier League behind altogether. So then, what is Emery seeing that we aren’t? Is it the possibility of someone like Adrien Rabiot coming in to replace him?
That’d make sense but a deal like that seems like it’s far, far from being complete, and that it’s far, far away from being made into a reality. We’re happy to be proven wrong on that but at this moment in time, it’s completely up in the air as to whether or not a transfer like that is even a possibility. Whatever the case may be we’re reserving judgement until we’ve got a clearer picture of the whole thing.
With the whole Ramsey thing we trust in Unai Emery’s ability to make the best of this situation, whether you think things are going well or they aren’t. The big story at the Emirates should be Arsenal’s insane unbeaten run above anything else, but until we’ve officially made our way through the next summer transfer window, we’ll never know one way or the other.
Official prediction: Ramsey leaves on a free transfer before returning to play for Arsenal five years later.
Do you think that Unai Emery is being stubborn with the Ramsey situation?
