Arsenal’s loanees – How many will make it – Part 3

Aaron Ramsey

Vito Mannone – Hull City

  • Apps: 5 Goals: 0
  • Loan started: October 18 Loan due to end: January 31
  • Last match: Hull City 2-0 Bristol City
  • League position: 18th in Championship

Verdict: Don Vito will be the third choice keeper once Manuel Almunia leaves the club. I don’t think he will overtake Wojciech but he has to stay patience and overtake Fabianski when the latter inevitably makes a mess of things.

Aaron Ramsey – Nottingham Forest

  • Apps: 0+2 Goals: 0
  • Loan started: November 25 Loan due to end: January 3
  • Last match: Nottingham Forest 3-0 Crystal Palace
  • League position: 8th in Championship

Verdict: Rambo’s loan spell was really to get him back to fitness after his broken leg. Ideally he would be back with the Gunners in January, but maybe continuing his rehabilitation with Forest will eventually be better for him.

Mark Randall – Rotherham United

  • Apps: 1 Goals: 0
  • Loan started: October 27 Loan due to end: January 25
  • Last match: Southend 1-0 Rotherham United
  • League position: 4th in League Two

Verdict: Former reserves’s team captain Mark has not been able to make the leap to the senior sqaud. It would be best to leave the club and seek greener pastures elsewhere.

Armand Traore – Juventus

  • Apps: 2+2 Goals: 0
  • Loan started: August 31 Loan due to end: End of the season
  • Last match: Chievo 1-1 Juventus
  • League Position: 4th in Serie A

Verdict: Armand has had his opportunities to cement his place in the squad but his perfromances end of last season showed that he won’t cut it with the Gunners.

This is my last post for the year. Wishing all of you

“Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year”
