    i'd like to see ramsey and wilshere as a kind of double pivot, when one decides to go foward, the other is near them to support in case they llose the ball, and also to keep the opposition guessing. ramsey imo is a better passer than wilshere. Waht wilshere has is the close control to navigate through space and the aggression to keep balls under tough challenges and play simple but great passes. Ramsey is a very good passer of the ball, his problem is that he dwells on it for too long/ takes time to see options, but when he does guaranteed he'll play a killer ball

    I reckon Walcott is a player that isn't really being used as much as he should be. He should be the central attacker he's always putting good balls in but the only player in the box is always Giroud who is practically useless, that miss against Everton did it for me, that guy needs to go

    His goal tally would disagree, he's not useless. Just isn't being used correctly. His finishing will improve, he's in a new league and at his first season at a top club. The same thing was being said about koscielny and look at him now. Think he needs to learn how to play on the ball. He's very good at getting himself into key positions but he's terrible on the ball imo. If he improved his dribbling/learnt a few tricks like drogba did then he'd come good.

    Yeah, would be good. Makes sense wrt wilshere. Wilshere doesn't have a great assist tally for a reason, he makes good passes in midfield and is crucial in buildup play but he doesn't make as many killer passes like ramsey can do. The stats don't explain how good wilshere actually is though but that seems to be the reason why. Like i've said before wilshere would get a lot more assists if his starting position was 20 yards further up the pitch but with cazorla there lets face it he's not getting games there. Plus his ability in CM is pretty vital. It's kind of similar to how iniesta has such a poor assist tally but he's so important to the general play of the team.

    I guess so. I think he would be good replacing arteta though personally. Thought he was a DLP but coming to think of it he's more of a box to box player, don't see him running a lot with the ball like JW does on the ball so thought he was a DLP. Still think he could make a good DLP though, plus he'd probably be needed to be put there if wilshere is playing in the CM/BBM role or shunted out wide. It's gonna be hard accomodating both of them in midfield in the future if they have the same role.
    I dunno, I would still like to see a proper DM bought in during the summer but that's a separate discussion. Although I don't see DM/DLP as Ramsey's primary role, he can definitely play there if necessary (as he has done a couple times this season).

    It shouldn't be a problem having them both in the same midfield as I'm pretty sure Wenger sees Wilshere as a number 10 for the future as he has given him that shirt number and has played him there a lot this season.

    It shows how far Ramsey has progressed this season as people used to moan then when they saw him in the starting XI whereas now people would probably moan if he wasn't starting

    We're leaving ourselves far too open at the back. I hope the players don't think this will be an easy ride.
