Ramsey Undergoes 'Successful' Surgery

Following the horrific injury sustained by Aaron Ramsey in the 3-1 victory over Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium yesterday, the Welsh midfielder under went an emergency operation last night.

The Arsenal youngster had his game cruely cut short by a hideous injury after Stoke's Ryan Shawcross entered a tackle that ended with Ramsey suffering a break of his tibia and fibula in his right leg.

A statement released on said the surgery was 'successful' and that it was obviously still too early to predict how long Rambo will be out for.

"During yesterday's match against Stoke City, Aaron Ramsey sustained fractures to the tibia and fibula in his right leg. Yesterday evening he underwent surgery.

'The operation successfully reduced the fractures and whilst it is too soon to state an exact timescale for recovery, Aaron will certainly miss the remainder of this season. Our thoughts are with Aaron at this time and everyone at the Club wishes him all the best in making as speedy a return to action as possible."

So the first step in Aaron's long road to recovery went well. I know it sounds sad but at least when it comes to long-term lay-offs, he's got Diaby and especially Eduardo for role models. Aaron is a strong kid and will bounce back. We will see him back playing football and scoring as we did Diaby and Eduardo. I'm very optimistic with the boy. All the best Rambo!!

I'm no doctor so my comment will be based soley on my own expeiences of breaking my arm. Rambo's injury looked to be in such a place that it will be ideal for healing. It seemed to be central to the bone away from any joints. When I broke my humerous bone it was fairly close to the elbow, and 7 years on and it's still not right. The doctor said that because it was close to the joint it would likely be complications, and he was right. So hopefully, the injury occured in the "right" place and Aaron will be back soon.

I hope he makes a full recovery and makes his way back into the first team. Just the other day me and my friend were talking about him taking over for Cesc in the event that he leaves, hopefully I'll be saying the same thing shortly. Just pray that his spirits don't drop and he has the courage to get up and try again.

it will takde at least 3 months for the bones to heal and the rest is for rehab.1 year i reckon.if it is bone only it will be less complicated rather than if it involves joint and ligaments too

Wish him well, seems like a good kid aswell as a very talented player. Hope he can recover, initial fears are that although its a double leg break, its not quite as severe as Eduardos, hope he gets through it. I also thought the Stoke chanting was a disgrace.

Eduardo and Diaby have recovered from their horrific injuries, they arent the same players that they were before. Ramsey is such a fantastic talent, the situation is depressing, coz even when he comes back, he's bound to suffer from frequent niggles.

Its partly Arsenal's fault. They have created a reputation of having a soft under belly and teams will do anything under their power to exploit it. 3 leg breaks in 5 years is no *****ign co-incidence. No *****ing bad luck. Its a result of repeated targeting of Arsenal players because we used to fold under some rough stuff. Unless we repeatedly win against such tactics it will continue to be employed against us.

When something like this happens even as a spurs fan you've got to cross your fingers and wish the lad well. One thing in his favour is he's young and healthy, so although it may slow his developement, he'll still hopefully have a full and long career ahead of him

Sajit, I failed in my efforts to put some perspective to your comments. Exactly how is it Arsenal's fault that teams choose rough house tactics on us when they can't simply compete in the skills department? I rather think it is a failing of the FA and officials to stamp out such tactics by putting appropriate sanctions in place, instead of the 'slap on the wrist' that perpetrators get. For your info, we have won against teams which play such physical games against us, many times in the past, but has that stopped them? No! Only discouraging punishment can, in my view. I can understand your frustrations though.

Old habits die hard, Naija. I totally agree that we have won against physical teams. But we need to do that more often - till they realize that bullying us will do nothing. We dont see these tactics against Man Utd or Chelsea..coz they dont have a history of capitulating under rough treatment. Having said that this team has done a lot to falsify the "Arsenal dont like it up 'em" theory.

Sajit you are wrong. You claim that it will happen so long as these tactics work? They have stopped working against us, the only thing that happens when teams try to bully us now is we fight back and grind out the win. Bolton, Blackburn, Stoke, Hull have fallen to us. For the most part the teams that beat us this season did so by out playing us.

The galling thing is that Shawcross will probably be back on the football pitch before Ramsey is released from hospital. And for what it's worth, England need to sack their entire PR department - calling up Shawcross to the Egland squad mere hours after he's broken someone's leg doesn't rank as one of the FA's smartest ever moves.

Great to hear that Aaron's surgery was successful, and hope his recovery is successful as well. I think that the England squad was already decided on before our game with Stoke had kick-off. I'm surprised that we have not hear anything from the Welsh camp yet, unless Ihave just missed it.

They do use them on man utd and chelsea but they have much stronger players but also are more likely to be stronger in the heads as well so better in dealing with these situations but also united and chelsea can actually match them for physicality as fletcher,evra,vidic,ferdinand and drogba,mikel,ballack,essien are no push overs and would seriously be able to rough them back.

Re Sajit's comment about us needing to build up a rougher reputation in order to avoid these sorts of injuries... you have a point, but it's a double edged sword. If we started playing like tough guys, that would increase the chances of games getting heated, and the opponents throwing in dangerous tackles out of anger or desire for payback. By the same token, I do think that opponents would be more cautious if we still had a guy like Vieira around, physically imposing with that aura of menace.

For Ramsey's recovery, I hope we can look to the example of Djibril Cisse; broke his leg twice in 3 years, yet still playing well at Panathinaikos. Ramsey by contrast is a brainy player and not solely dependent on speed or strength, so hopefully it won't affect his overall game so much.

Although a Spurs fan, i wish the lad all the best. Its horrible for a lad his age, with a whole career ahead of him to go through it. All the best for him. I truly hope he gets better soon. Feel very sorry for Shawcross also. I bet he still has not slept at night, and you could see the genuine sorrow he felt. Shame!

I would just to Thank a Stoke Player! Glen Whelan who comforted Aaron while he was recieving on the pitch treatment, it couldn't have been easy. So Cheers Glen!

Glen and Niklas were both there until he went through the tunnel. I hope reports about his recovery time are true - 6-9 months for a double leg fracture in the scheme of things isn't so bad, it's the niggles and other physical/psychological problems that follow that will take much longer to heal :(

Aaron is a mentally tough guy. Like Eduardo. If he recovers physically, I am confident he will overcome the psychological scars. It may take a good few years but I'm willing to wait on him. He's totally worth it.
