As Arsenal compete for the Premier League title for the first time since the 2008 season in which Arsenal capitulated towards the run in, the catalyst for which was a 2-2 draw at St Andrews after the Gunners fell to pieces following the breaking of Eduardo’s leg, Aaron Ramsey was unfortunate enough to get a taste of just what happened on that fateful day.

In a cruel twist of scarily similar fate, on a day where Arsenal look to close the gap on the leaders to just 3 points, Aaron Ramsey has suffered an horrific injury (the extent of which is not yet known) in the second half of a crucial game at the Brittania Stadium against Stoke.

Rambo when down under a reckless challenge from Ryan Shawcross, and the reaction from the players and the refusal of Sky Sports to replay the incident told us all we needed (or wanted) to know.

I’m 100% sure that Shawcross mistimed his challenge and that no malice was intended (indeed he was crying as he left the field) but maybe in light of Ramsey’s injury it might make players think twice before throwing themselves into tackles without thinking about the consequences…..but then again, we said that after Eddie’s injury.

At this time the game is still going on, but I find myself with little interest in watching it, I hope the players can pull themselves together and have a better attitude than me and go on to win the title for Rambo.

Get well soon Aaron.
