‘He’s so frustrating, worst on the pitch!’ – Twitter reacts to Arsenal man’s Barcelona performance
While Mathieu Flamini has attracted much criticism for giving away a penalty immediately after being introduced off the bench, another midfielder has not been spared by frustrated fans.
The Gunners managed to give Barcelona a run for their money until Luis Suarez, Neymar and Lionel Messi combined to break the deadlock after 71 minutes through a devastating counter-attack.
Messi’s penalty-kick sealed off a harsh 2-0 defeat for Arsene Wenger’s men on a night where they looked likely to defy the odds at one point.
Despite putting in what appeared to be a busy shift in midfield, Aaron Ramsey has been picked out by some Gooners as one of the few who were culpable for the defeat to Luis Enrique’s men.
The Welshman, in for the injured Santi Cazorla, is yet to score a goal since he found the net against Sunderland in last month’s FA Cup tie.
But was Ramsey really that bad on Tuesday night? These fans think so.
Arsenal could have played a fridge freezer in central midfield ahead of Aaron Ramsey and the only difference would be more completed passes.

Aaron Ramsey plays like he's being controlled by a FIFA player that holds down the sprint button the whole game. #AFCvFCB

Still can't believe Aaron Ramsey once scored what seemed like 40 goals in 2013/2014. Stunning # of missed chances this season. Frustrating.

The thing that annoys me abt Aaron Ramsey is that he didn't even attempt to sprint back in the build up of Barcelona's goal..no future at CM

Aaron Ramsey is so frustrating. Either MOTM or worst player on the pitch. Nothing in between.

Aaron Ramsey has put on the worst display from a central midfielder that I have ever seen

This Arsenal loss is 100% on Aaron Ramsey. If he'd stop trying to outdo Mesut Özil and just play his own game, Arsenal could be up.

Never have I EVER been so ashamed of owning an Aaron Ramsey jersey

Aaron Ramsey, runs for days… Average at passing but has the shooting ability of a disabled cow
