‘Drop him for the rest of the season!’ – Twitter reacts to Arsenal regular’s Swansea show
The Arsenal faithful’s frustration towards Aaron Ramsey week after week appears to have reached a new boiling point.
Arsenal managed to squander another opportunity to regain any lost ground in the title race after following up Sunday’s miserable show at Old Trafford with another defeat at home to Swansea City.
The Welsh side appears to have the Gunners’ number after securing their third victory at the Emirates stadium in the last four seasons.
However, Wednesday night’s defeat felt even more familiar to most Arsenal fans who claim to have witnessed another below-par performance from Aaron Ramsey.
Ahead of the clash with Swansea, an alarming statistic about the 24-year-old suggested that an opponent had dribbled past him 51 times this season, more than any other player.
Even when in goal-scoring form, Ramsey’s discipline in central midfield when without the ball has been criticized in the past.
And according to the many who saw his latest display against the Swans, the former Cardiff City man has become a real liability in Arsene Wenger’s side.
Let's be honest, Aaron Ramsey shouldn't be starting for Arsenal right now. He's been living off his 13/14 form for 2 seasons now. So poor.

Aaron Ramsey cannot play as a holding midfielder. Needs 5 touches on the ball before looking up to pass forwards. Slows the play down.

Denilson had a better pass and assist rate than Aaron Ramsey

If there's one thing you can trust with this squad it's Aaron Ramsey to be the fuck up ball in any passing move we put together

If Aaron Ramsey stepped up to take a penalty he would still play a backwards pass

I have no idea how Aaron Ramsey keeps continuing to stay on the pitch and Campbell comes off tonight?!? #Arsenal

Since Aaron Ramsey moved into central midfield Arsenal has steadily declined.
