'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rambo is Back!

Between a bitterly disappointing league defeat and yet another opportunity to redeem ourselves in Europe, perhaps few would have paid attention to a nothing reserves game at the Arsenal training ground today. But I would have followed it had I known that it was Aaron Ramsey's first game for Arsenal since his horrific injury at Stoke in February.

The image of Aaron wearing this season's new home shirt was fantastic in itself. He looked lively and happy to express himself a little bit with a dribbling, tricky run towards the end of the free video on arsenal.com. The club also reports that he put in a solid performance and almost marked his comeback with a goal if not for the Wolves keeper's save.

In the other goal was Manuel Almunia, who also made his comeback from injury (not sure if I should use quotation marks here) with 45 minutes under his belt. Both first-teamers went off at half time when the scoreline was 0-0 and their colleagues secured a 2-1 win in the second half. This way for the arsenal.com match report.

Really, really look forward to seeing Rambo go on to the Emirates pitch!

Good to see Rambo back after what must have been a difficult period for him. We'll have an embarrassment of riches in midfield at this rate. Looking forward to seeing him back in the first team. Not sure I can say the same thing about Manuel. We must be the only one of the top teams with a non-international first team keeper, which for me says it all about Wenger's priorities in defence. While Utd are rightly targeting Lindergaard as a very good value-for money replacement (4m) for Van Der Sar we are still messing about trying to work out who our best keeper is...and none of them being world class in terms of being first choice for their respective country.

Is it too much to ask for him to be included in the squad to face Wigan in the CC or is he ready for some competitive football?

Fantastic news, but I'm sure he'll be reintroduced very slowly. Diaby and Eduardo will be instructive, I'd almost be prepared to write most of this season off for him and just get him in and around the playing squad in a couple of months but don't over exert him beyond that. Get him a good pre season next summer and then hopefully next season we can start looking forward to seeing the Rambo we saw last year. On another note, what a shame that nobody could see his comeback in the flesh because the club won't play reserve games at Underhill anymore.

Very slow introduction indeed it seems, as he's off to Forest on loan. Not sure if that's good or bad with our injury woes.

"Break-a-leg" at Forest Ramsey, i mean that in the theatrical sense of course rather than the literal sense.
TheFamousNo7
All the best Ramsey...
Sajit
Seems an odd decision to send him on loan so soon. He's only there for a month and a bit, I wouldn't have thought he was ready to play competitively yet? Seems awfully soon.
Little Dutch
For those able to watch Ramsey is tipped to make his debut for Forest tonight.
